For centuries, the Sky People and Sorcerers battled each other endlessly; but nine hundred years ago, the leaders of the each cause were sealed away. Now, in the present, these leaders have both reincarnated, and protectors of each faction have emerged. Ryosuke Sakiya is a high school boy with strange powers to see things that others do not, and he currently is under attack by one of the factions for unknown reasons. Meanwhile, Jukyurou, Saeko, and the rest of the members of the opposing faction have appeared to help protect Ryosuke. All he wants is to be left alone; will Ryosuke finally understand why he has been forced into the middle of this epic battle?
Kagura is a young man who has tragically lost not only his friend, but the woman he loves as well. With only his friend Asami to turn to, Kagura quickly finds his life spinning out of control when he discovers that he is a Spirit User -- one of the Elementalors who command the forces of nature. Now, along with his fellow Elementalors, Kagura must race against the clock to stop Lord Shiki from causing an imbalance in nature by trying to save his long lost daughter, Shiohisa.
Elementalors and High School Aurabuster are both godawful, short OVAs that make NO SENSE. Each is filled with fantasy and random characters that we know nothing about. If for some insane reason you liked one, you might like the other.
In the not too distant future, discrimination is based not on the color of your skin, but the psychic powers you possess. The wielders of these skills (known as E's) are persecuted in the slums of Gald, but are coveted in Ashuram, a military organization dedicated to enhancing these abilities for mysterious purposes. For one man named Kai, his journey from one of Ashuram's best to one of Gald's finest will take him through the heart of a conspiracy that threatens to destroy not only all E's, but all humans on the planet as well...
E's Otherwise, like High School Aurabuster, involves a group of superpowered people who must battle others with similar powers. Sound generic? Well, it sort of is; let's just say that after suffering through Aurabuster, E's Otherwise (even though I didn't like it much either) will be a breath of fresh air.
In the present, there exists a spiritual world unseen to the average human being -- the Feudal Underworld, a place where the spirits of ancient samurai warlords battle for supremacy, while influencing the land of the living. Ougi Takaya thought he was a normal high school student, until a man named Naoe Nobutsuna informed him that he is the reincarnation of Uesugi Kagetora, one of a clan that is dedicated to exorcising these spirits. With the help of old friends and the spurn of new enemies, can Takaya come to admit the truth behind his existence?
Though High School Aurabuster and Mirage of Blaze have different settings, both involve reincarnated people who must battle again in the present. I strongly preferred Mirage of Blaze to High School Aurabuster, but depending on what kind of mood you are in, if you liked one you may enjoy the other.
In the streets of Tokyo, demons run rampant, silently killing and possessing innocent citizens against their will. Meanwhile, in one local high school, the once ridiculed computer loving Akito Kobayashi has returned, armed with the knowledge to summon the greatest demon of them all, Ose, to destroy all of humankind. Along with Takehiko Kuki and Marika Kusaka, spiritual ninjas that have spanned centuries protecting the gods, one man must fight to stop the evil god from resurrecting, before it's too late...
Like epic superpower battles that take place in the city? You might enjoy Tokyo Revelation and High School Aurabuster. Keep in mind I liked TR but thought Aurabuster was pretty much terrible; regardless, if you liked some elements of one, you may enjoy them in the other.
Kamui has returned to Tokyo with a traumatizing past, but he is not the only one. Many people are returning to Tokyo for the same reason: they play a part in the End of the World. The Dragons of Earth and the Dragons of Heaven now must fight for the destruction or safety of the world. But is this troubled Kamui really the key to saving the world?
It's unfortunate I haven't seen the X Movie, as based on what I've heard, it would be an ideal (and just as bad) recommendation for High School Aurabuster. However, I HAVE seen the TV series, and it's safe to say that watching it would be a huge, huge step up from Aurabuster. X TV is actually good, with a plot that makes sense and much better animation. After suffering through Aurabuster, treat yourself with X TV.
