Galaxy Angel is one of the most recent titles from Broccoli (Pita Ten, Di Gi Charat, A Little Snow Fairy Sugar). Galaxy Angel is about the Angel Squad and their wild and weird adventures through out the galaxy.
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.

Let me just start this way: Galaxy Angel is very, very funny. The Angel Brigade is a branch of the Trasvaal Empire military, charged with finding "Lost Technology". In ancient times, there was a civilization that had reached the apex of technology until something called the Chronoquake destroyed it. Centuries later some of the Lost Technology showed up at the planet Transavaal, and allowed the planet to build the first starships. Soon, the planet had built a large empire spanning the universe. Other specimens of Lost Technology are scattered through the galaxy. The military sends the Galaxy Angels to gather it up. The problem is that noone knows what it looks like and sometimes it could be buried under miles of rock or on a world inhabited by space pirates. Well, anyway, the Angels are fully capable of doing their job, or are they?

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.

Thats a good way to describe it. Think of Excel Saga without the frenetic pace, constant super deformity, and crude humor, but instead put in its place, wit, an extremly high kawaii factor (wait till you see mint-chan), and best of all, 5 of the most loveable characters in an anime in a good while. This anime oozes charm, and although its not exactly original, constantly funny, or containing any semblance of plot, it is nevertheless a very fun anime to watch, and because each episode is 15 minutes, the joke is carefully planned in each episode almost like a skit. From Milfeulle's incredible luck, Forte's comedic usage of firearms, Ranpha's fighter traninig (and blondness), Mints's absolutely adorable cosplay tendencies, Vanilla's constant focus on nothing but her strange religion, and a talking melancholy missile, theres enough material here to provide constant entertainment, even when the joke itself doesnt have you rolling. The characters make this show, and although its not the best comedy anime out there, this cute and charming little show absolutely works.

If you played Galaxy Angel, Galaxy Angel - Moonlit Lovers and/or Galaxy Angel - Eternal Lovers then don't start thinking this anime has anything to do with the games.

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.
