Galaxy Angel

I was surfing the web, and found this anime? manga? I don't really understand. Has anyone seen it? It looked like a Sailor Moon kinda show, and if it is I don't really want to bother wasting my time on it, or is it any actually legit show?

I found the show actually kind of entertaining, my brother bought the first DVD so that's all i've seen of it.
I seem to remember pointing out to my brother that in almost every bit of the opening song thing there is pink.
But i'd recommend checking out the anime though, but I don't know much about the manga, actually it never occured to me there might be one.

Is it anything like sailor moon? Or sorta the girly, mushie, happy kind of anime? Thats the impression I got.

It's nothing like sailor moon. Sailor moon actually has a story, whereas I can only describe GA as a bunch of random happenings that have no bearing on any of the other episodes. It's also not a girly show, it's very fanservice oriented, but keeps it at PG rating. That being said, it's a slapstick comedy that has an addictive charm, but which you'd only watch for a few laughs.

It ain't random, but it's pointless. It's so pointless and lame that it's actually funny. The WTF value is quite high.

I too have only seen first few ephisodes, during a con, and I don't think I'll watch anymore of it.

I never really watched Sailor Moon, but compared to what I have seen of it, I like GA alot more.

I kinda picture GA as DigiCharat but with a much larger budget
(Incidentally, both were concieved by Broccoli (surprise, surprise))

Personally I find GA kinda silly at times but there's something about it that keeps pulling me back to it. Maybe it's it the consistent hilarity, maybe it's the sugar content or maybe it's the gleefully insane opening theme, I don't know. Still, I've enjoyed what I've seen insofar and I'm keen to see more (even if the series itself is absurdly long).

And on a irrevelent note, I must admit the dubbing is really well done.
I kinda like Nicole Leroux (from The Core) as Rampha

It looked pretty silly at Best Buy.

Thanks for the review comments. Think I'll stay away from this one.
