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 ›
The series is not cannon to the Moon Angel-tai Saga of the games as not only are some traits about each of the Angels strangely different from that of the games but even some of the names of places are different, for example, they are in the Trasvaal Empire, (in the games it is the Transbaal Empire), the Angles are stationed at Galaxy Angel Base (not the White Moon) and even in the first episode, Ranpha calls the group the Galaxy Angel Brigade and not the Moon Angel-tai (or Moon Angel Wing if you want a full translation) in which, players of Eternal Lovers would know that the Moon Angel-tai was only refereed to as Galaxy during the coming of the second Chrono Quake.
Some of the difference with character traits are slight, Ranpha and Milfie are complete strangers when they first meet unlike in the game where their childhood friends from pilot school, Mint is more obsessed with Cosplay and Vanilla is religious making references to god a lot.Read more ›
