This show is a comedy, a parody of other space adventure shows, usually entailing some really ridiculous goal (landing a husband, finding a cat, gambling to pay off a debt from gambling). There are many jokes along the way to the Squad completing their goal, which is what makes the meat of the show. Each character has their own distinct flaws (Ranpha wants a perfect guy to whisk her away from the job, for example) played out extremely humorously throughout the course of each episode. These flaws make the characters endearing in very silly ways.
You will like this show if you enjoy light-hearted parodies and a sitcom atmosphere. You will not like this show if you're expecting a dramatic lengthy and deep plot. This show is driven by it's characters, but not towards development, just towards comedy.
There are five Angels and they are all memorable and distinct. Milfeulle is the newest member and she has an almost supernatural affinity for good luck. For instance, when the Angels are gambling in a casino, she proceeds to win everything in the joint. That is, until the owner tries to cheat her with a rigged roulette table. She calls a color and when the ball seems to rest in a position in which she will lose her money, a giant asteroid appears out of nowhere and after the impact the ball lands in the color she chose. She is a bit of a dummy though, but nice.
Forte is another Angel, and has a mannish voice, and guns are her specialty. Ranpha is Mrs. Glamour herself and is always falling for studly looking guys. She is also a great martial artist. Mint is the younger, more demure Angel that mainly stays back on the ship and controls the missions.Read more ›
Granted, the box only contains the first DVD of the show with four episodes, but there is so much more inside! In addition to the DVD, a special booklet with part of the Galaxy Angel managa is enclosed, two pencil boards showing the girls in all the glory and even five figurines of the Angels!
Not only that, but the box can be used to hold all 4 DVD's of the series! For any Galaxy Angel fan, this is a good deal and a purchase I do not regret.
Very recommended! Space adventure Parodies, guns, girly girls, gambling, Forte using the sharpshooter in a wrestling match, this DVD has it all!!!!!
^o^ By the way, Milfeulle rules! Though the missile "Nomat" "Normad" whatever, someone really needs to put the little guy out of his misery! After all,*spoiler*that's his destiny! *winks*
