Their mission is to locate and retrieve the mysterious Lost Technology, even though these girls have never been known to stick to their mission. Milfeulle, Forte, Ranpha, Mint, and Vanilla are back for another round of hilarity. The Galaxy Angels have sworn to protect the galaxy one planet at a time. Now with some competition with the newly-formed Twin Star Brigade, they continue to find themselves in the center of chaos... though usually they're the ones at fault for its cause.
I normally wouldn't be reviewing an anime like this, but i just felt i couldn't leave this one alone with that other negative review saying how there's no story and giving it a 1.
Well of course theres no story, it's Galaxy Angels! Not all anime are supposed to have stories and this is definitely one of those. (If people want to see a good story with GA, just skip right to the last episode which had a pretty good one)
Now the difference with this GA is that a new team has come to the scene, the Galaxy Twin-Star Unit! They are a
team of two brothers (one all smart, one all active and liking sweets) which do their missions very well and get all the praise. Now is the Angel-tai going to let that happen? No! You can expect some competitive action which makes this more fun =)
Other than that, it's just your usual random lost technology finding, collecting, experimenting, accidents and....
Also the quality has gone down a bit compared to the 2nd so dont expect any better animation for this one.
Alright that's it i guess.
Some fun episodes, 7(lottery survival), 14(chibi Angel-tai), 16(gender bending), 20(wandering cat spirit), 21(octopus sushi shop), 24(mass date), 27(Magical Angel-tai), 32(just normads laugh lol), 39(the "perfect guy"), 42(lone soldier), and last the one with a good story, 51-52(Rebecca).
Honestly, I'm not even sure what I can say about AA that I haven't said for Galaxy Angel or GA Z. The anime continues to be absolutely funny; never dull or boring and in my case, kept me from falling asleep after some busy days! The gang continues to fit into their personalities quite well and they're still a blast to watch.
Mint and Milfuelle continue to be my favorites of the show, but recently Vanilla has become a star to me. The third season sees a lot more screen time for Vanilla with some episodes dedicated to her, as
such, it really makes her a great character, even if she almost never talks. Ranpha and Forte continue to be the two bad asses of the anime and they're always funny to watch, especially when Mint, Ranpha and Forte get into competitions revolving around lost artifacts or events going on in the universe.
The sci-fi aspect of Galaxy Angel is down-right brilliant. It's not deep, is never really explained and has no true purpose aside from having Galaxy Angel take place in an environment that isn't school related. I feel like it works really well too, because so much slice of life is about that high school experience and no offence to all the SoL that do use schools, I love them very much, but a new environment is needed once in a while. (I still love all you animes in school, I really really do (Don't get mad at me)).
Lost Technology plays a bigger role this season, though how we obtain the Lost Technology is typically never showed, instead we're almost always shown how the Galaxy Angel solves the problems set in place by Lost Technology and just about every single scenario we witness is fantastic. Glad to see Lost Technology play a more upfront role.
Music and sound wise: The OP and ED's used might be my favorite of the 3 seasons I've seen thus far and even though the music and ambient sounds and back ground sounds definitely give off a 90's vibe, it totally works, even if they're recycled a bit.
Once again we see the trend of 90%-95% comedic and outright laugh out loud funny episodes in a beautiful episodic format, the other 5%-10% is filled with some serious and more intense episodes. The way these episodes feel and are shown to us is so different from the comedic stuff, it's a little crazy. I still feel that having the serious or darker based episodes (Darker compared to the light and fluffy that GA already gives us) is 100% incredible to do. The stark contrast can really give the viewer a huge adrenaline rush with a good story or great character roles and even though the episodes last 22 minutes or so, you feel more connected and involved whilst watching these types of episodes.
I feel as if Galaxy Angel AA might be my favorite season thus far, I love the OP and ED. I love the wild and crazy episodes we get to witness. I love the character progression and the focuses on Milfuelle and Vanilla. I love the better focus of Lost Technology too.
I guess the only thing I don't like about AA is the inclusion of the Twin Stars Brigade. The two kids aren't bad at all and in most cases can be really funny, I just wasn't expecting Galaxy Angel to cut some focus time away from the Angel Brigade. Even with the Twin Stars, I can't give Galaxy Angel AA any less than a 10/10, fantastic season for sure.
This is basically more of the same thing as in Galaxy Angel 1 and in Galaxy Angel Z. The difference is that this time episodes are even less connected with each other and the "mysterious/serious episodes" that were present in Galaxy Angel Z are next to non-existent (I think there was only one episode like that).
Overall.. it is a gag comedy. Individual episodes share characters, but otherwise are not connected to each other, and can probably be viewed in any order. The show usually takes some sort of a strange idea and runs with it for the
duration of an episode (episodes are short - there are two stories per episode, meaning in 26 minute episode you'll have two unrelated 13 or so minute long episodes. Usually).
The humor however is not exactly top notch, but isn't bad either. Which makes it a decent anime to kill time.
Story: 5/10. There is a smaller number of serious episodes compared to galaxy Angel Z, so it is slightly worse in my opinion. The story isn't horrible, but it is centered around gags and silly ideas, so it doesn't take itself seriously to begin with. There's larger number of anime parodies, comparable to previous seasons, but overall it is more or less the same thing - a show that doesn't take itself seriously and is mostly about silly fun.
It is worth mentioning that this time it is incredibly common for story lines fail to finish. Meaning you could have an episode that ends up with some sort of disastrous consequences, and in the next one, everything starts from the blank state, as if the previous story never happened. This is extremely common, which is why I say it is possible to watch this anime pretty much in any order.
Art: 5/10: It is decent but those are budget series. Meaning overall it has low level of detail, and doesn't really excel in a visual department.
Sound: 5/10: Music is okay. Same applies to voice acting. The music doesn't stand out.
Character: 5/10: Those are gag characters that stick with their typical role, and do not try to do something beyond that. So, no significant character depth, just characters playing their parts. Still, for the comedy show they're believable enough.
Enjoyment: 5/10 : I found it to be okay. It was not a very existing show, but it wasn't a horrible one. So I didn't hate it.
Overall: 5/10: Worth a watch if you want to kill some time or to have some cheap lights. it is not a masterpiece level material, but it isn't bad either.
What can I say? The third season of Galaxy Angel is continuing with the quality bar set by the second season, which means it's great. It's still the same Galaxy Angel, which means the same show with no real story. Our heroes are still looking for some vague Lost Technology and that's about it. Every episode is different and they don't rely on each other. Every episode is independent. It could be described as slice of life. Slice of life from space. If you are looking for some mindblowing story, well, this is not the animeme for you. But if you're looking for something very
fun, brainless and enjoyable, well, look no further. I think the last time I had this much fun watching anime was few years ago.
Characters are the same as you know from the first and second season. And they are still as lovely as ever. All of them are great, there is not a single character that would suck. They are all very different, with different personalities, but they fit together PERFECTLY. I gotta say, my favorite character is still Mint.
What I found kinda funny was the fact that they introduced few new characters in this season, but then I got the feeling they realised they kinda sucked, so they really weren't in most of the episodes. So if you're not that happy with the first episode where they are introduced, like I was, just keep watching, they will disappear eventually, I promise!
The music and sound is excellent, as is always the case with things produced by Broccoli. I especially loved the second ending. It always felt like the great end of the alcoholic night. The song used in second ending and its atmosphere is so... celebratory. Animation and thing in second ending is really simple, when you think about it, but it works very well. I can imagine watching it on New Year night.
I loved the art. It felt kinda old school, but in a good way. It looks like very solid, older anime. Anyway, to summarize this - I recommend this anime and you should definitely watch it if you need some cute, funny no-brainer. And I enjoyed this season so much, I am not afraid to rate it as masterpiece.
