 is a bishōjo sci-fi/comedy anime, manga and dating sim series by BROCCOLI. It was created in July 2000, when Broccoli launched the multi-platformed project called Project G.A. The anime and Galaxy Angel Party manga comprise a comedy story in an alternate universe, while the games and the regular manga have a serious and involved romance/action plot.


A sequel to the game trilogy was released in June 2006, entitled "Galaxy Angel II: Zettai Ryouiki no Tobira", and stars an entirely new cast, the "Rune Angel Troupe", and a new feature that combines the new Brave Heart frame with any of the Angels. Each of the Rune Angels has a connection to one of the Galaxy Angels, such as Apricot Sakuraba, the younger sister of Milfeulle Sakuraba. Just like the original Galaxy Angel, the Galaxy Angel II series will have multiple games and already has a manga adaptation and comedic anime spinoff, both of which are currently running. The second Galaxy Angel II game was released in October 2007 entitled Galaxy Angel II Mugen Kairou no Kagi.

The success of the video game and anime series influenced the creation of a manga series based on the video game universe.

In Japan, the series became so popular that a musical based on the series was made. Entitled "GALAXY ANGEL ~The Musical~", it debuted in March and December 2005, and featured cast members who also worked on Galaxy Angel II.

Anime

The Galaxy Angel anime series, produced by BROCCOLI, Madhouse and Bandai Visual, premiered across Japan on Animax between 7 April 2001 to 29 September 2001, and was soon followed by numerous sequels, including a second series ("Z"), a third series ("A", "AA", and "S") and a fourth ("X"). Each broadcast is made up of two fifteen minute episodes, whose titles always contain references to food. The first series was broadcast by Animax, while later series have been broadcast by TV Osaka and other TXN stations. Internationally, the series has been broadcast by Animax and its respective networks worldwide, including its English language networks in Southeast Asia and South Asia, and its other networks in Hong Kongmarker, Taiwanmarker, South Koreamarker and Latin America. In the US, this series is distributed in DVDs from Bandai Entertainment.

The story is about a group of women and girls who go on government-sponsored humanitarian missions as the Angel Troupe (Angel-tai) to search for Lost Technology, generally a plot device to set up amusing and absurd humor typical of the show, rife with obscure Japanese puns. Many of the devices look like extremely mundane objects like sticks or rice cookers, but have fantastic powers like mutating organisms or as destructive weapons.

2: Some episodes were not broadcast in Japan. Those were later added as extra episodes (OVAs) released on DVD.
3: Ignoring extra episodes on DVD.
4: Galaxy Angel A and AA is actually considered to be the same series (Series 3) in Japan. They just decided to give it a different name in the middle of the series.
5: Galaxy Angel S is a single special episode, which also is considered to be a part of series 3.


The Galaxy Angel anime generally abandoned any sense of strict continuity or plot arcs after the first series, so they can be viewed in any order. The cast is frequently abandoned, killed, or transmogrified only to return completely normal in the next episode. However, the fourth series introduced a new character (see below) and occasional references are made to funny events in previous series (For example, references to the Bandit Corned Beef). Many episodes also parody aspects of Japanese culture, movies, and of course, anime, often compressing what would be expected to be multiple-episode long stories into a few minutes. Each series also contains one episode which is played straight - as a serious, non-parody episode.The animated series can also be cited as a fanservice series in the most basic (but non-sexual) sense: the show is self-promotional, with absurd humor, spontaneous musical numbers, and elaborate costumes.

Characters

Games

The video games are part strategy game, part dating sim, and are available for the PC and PlayStation 2. The three games in the series are titled Galaxy Angel, Moonlit Lovers and Eternal Lovers. All versions of the story are centered around the Angel Troupe, five or six female special agents with spacecraft.

Broccoli have announced that the video game trilogy will be released in North America , though Broccoli will not be working on the actual game themselves. All that is currently known is that the games will be subtitled only (without an English dubbed cast). The game is planned to be a PC only release. The English-subtitled version have been delayed from its intended Summer 2006 release due to the company whom is working on the game seeking a production house to help translate the game. A fan-made translation of the games are being worked on.

Galaxy Angel

In the video game universe, the Galaxy Angels are from the "Special Guardian Division" and they work closely with the "Imperial Special Guards" and the "Satellite Defense Teams". They are the guardians of the White Moon, the sacred planet of the Transbaal Empire, and the personal protectors of the White Moon Goddess Shatoyan. The story begins with Prince Eonia attempting a take over of the Transbaal Empire with the aid of the mysterious Black Moon, counterpart to the White Moon. To counter Prince Eonia, the Angel-tai along with their flagship the Elsior are placed in the hands of the kind and ever-capable Commander Takuto Meyers. In addition to the storyline differences, the personalities of the characters were also altered significantly for the anime, and the video games offer a much more in-depth look into the Galaxy Angel universe. Due to this, many fans treat the video games as the actual canonical universe for Galaxy Angel.
