Editorial Reviews

Bandai continues the humorous Galaxy Angel anime with this third volume in the series. More mayhem, insanity, and bizarre happenings fill the six 15-minute shows included on this disc. The Galaxy Angels are a special military unit that is charged with finding lost technology and helping out wherever they can. That means anything from tracking down stolen tanks to running errands. This comedy show set in the future has a good mix of comedy and SF action.

I needed this disc to complete my box set collection. Product arrived well packed and in wonderful condition! It would be nice if it was easier to find the original packing of first releases of anime series... It seems that before a collector is able to buy a full set of any new anime, that the later discs become harder and harder to find, then the repackaged slim pack editions are released...

Volume 3 of Galaxy Z is the final one (sniff), but goes out with quite a bang.

We begin with one of the more serious episodes, In-Flight Meal. The Angels are heading home after supposedly destroying a large creature, but not before it gobbled up many planets and star systems. The conversation is very serious in the beginning, with each of the Angels talking about how this has affected her.

But then things get weird and kinda like the Twilight Zone. First, all five Emblem frames are traveling together, then Mifuelle is alone for a brief moment. Forte radios her to not get so far ahead of the rest. They also discuss whether the creature is really dead. The episode ends leaving you wondering what's really happened.

We finally get to see how much Vanilla cares for Normad in Love and Doubt Fried Cabbage Cake. The episodes opens with all the other Angels enjoying a repast after a mission. Outside, Vanilla goes to help a child who's injured. While she's doing this, Normad laments what he really means to Vanilla. Just then, a very creepy guy shows up and kidnaps him!

When Vanilla demands Normad be returned, the guy takes off. What comes next is a chase scene unlike any other. Vanilla uses nearly every and any form of transportation she can to chase after the man, including a train! Near the episode's end, Vanilla has one of the best lines, "I want Normad back. Give my friend back."

Needless to say, she does get Normad back. What happens next... well, you'll have to see it to believe it!

Miraculous Boat-Wrapped Sushi is one of the funnier episodes on the DVD. The Angels are out on a boat relaxing, except for Forte who's trying to catch a legendary fish for a huge cash prize.

Oh lord, here we go again with the next volume of the incredibly funny Galaxy Angel entitled "Stranded Without Dessert". While this title might make you think that this installment will be full of tragedy and heartbreak, nothing could be further from the truth, well, except for the death of Forte, I mean the FAKED death of Forte. Ranpha is late for a date with a handsome hunk, so she tells him that she missed it because of Forte's death. As always, the plans of the Angels fall astray as Forte is scheduled to be cremated. Straight out of Ghost in the Shell, Milfeulle and Mint have to take on a sentient tank running amok in the city. The problem is that Milfeulle thinks it's fun to be dragged behind a speeding death machine. Then the two girls are accused of stealing the tank. We get a revealing episode about the always mysterious and apocalyptic Vanilla as she collapses into a deep depression after losing an item that holds an all-important place in her life. Will even Milfeulle's legendary luck be able to find the object? Another one of the funnier episodes is "Monkey Salvage Combo" in which Vanilla, Forte, and Mint stop at a space station which seems to have been taken over by annoying monkeys. The dvd features 6 episodes in all.

As usual, Japanese anime and manga is almost always about underdog losers striving against the universe, and here we have five of them, and let's not forget Normad, the much abused and maligned super computer brain in the form of a goofy-looking pink stuffed animal. The funny thing about the Galaxy Angels is that their main job is to find the Lost Technology even though they don't have a clue as to what the Lost Technology is. So they're basically just bumbling around the universe getting into madcap situations which are always funny and entertaining.
