    Angel Brigade 

Milfeulle Sakuraba

Voiced by: Ryoko Shintani (JP), Jocelyne Loewen (EN)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Milfeulle_4233.JPG

Milfeulle is the only one of the group who believes that the Galaxy Angels have some kind of duty and responsibility to the Transbaal Empire. She can be seen in most episodes baking cakes and other kinds of delicious treats, or on missions generally making a fool of herself. If ever there a character expresses hopes that a certain piece of recently acquired Lost Technology won't be used by accident due to its dire consequences, it is inevitably Milfeulle who will trigger it and cause the good times to roll, so to speak. The more cynical members of the Angel Wing often attempt to take advantage of her innocence and good luck but even they must occasionally tread carefully around her. The more she is pushed, the harder reality pushes back.

  • Born Lucky: Taken to absurd levels. Reality itself will literally bend to accomodate the most favourable outcome. It is also the subject of a few episodes where her good luck lands the Angels in considerable trouble.
  • Cherry Blossom Girl: Her last name is Sakuraba. She's sweet, cheerful and ridiculously lucky. She even wears cherry blossoms in her pink hair.
  • Depending on the Writer: Milfeulle is sometimes completely oblivious to other characters' distress, and other times obsessively empathetic depending on the whim of the writers.
  • The Ditz: At one point she wants to date a rice-cooker.
  • Edible Theme Naming: She is named after the French pastry Mille-fuelle.
  • Flower in Her Hair
  • The Fool: An archetypal example is her running off a cliff, chasing after food that was rolling away.
  • Friend to All Living Things: She loves animals and animals love her. Well, animals, plants, recently deceased animals and plants...
  • The Heroine: Of the anime.
  • Naïve Newcomer: In the first season, quickly becomes a regular.
  • The Pollyanna
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: Sweet and optimistic, as expected from a girl with pink hair.
  • Supreme Chef: Makes a cake with emeralds and gold-leaf.
  • Sweet Tooth: She loves cakes and pastries, and sometimes it seems like the only things she can cook.
  • Swiss-Army Superpower: The hairband with the flowers serves mainly as a pair of rotary blades that allow her to fly, but have also served as radio antennae and some kind of telepathic transmitter/receiver.
  • Team Chef: Though the others can cook, mostly at campfires.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has pink hair.


Ranpha Franboise

Voiced by: Yukari Tamura (JP), Nicole Leroux (EN original series, Z, A & AA), Tabitha St. Germain (EN S & X)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Ranpha_8187.JPG

A fast-talking, loud-mouthed, fiery girl who has few desires in life beyond marrying a rich, handsome man and retiring to a quiet resort planet where she can live out the rest of her days. To these ends, Ranpha is behind many of the Angel Wing's get-rich-quick schemes and is quick to take on missions for clients who are rich, attractive, or both. She tends to be very physical and often gets into spats with Forte, but is more likely to team up with her than any of the other Angels in pursuit of a greater goal.


Mint Blancmanche

Voiced by: Miyuki Sawashiro (JP), Nicole Bouma (EN)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Minto_686.JPG

She may seem sweet to a fault but those who cross Mint will always regret it. Her serious and proper exterior conceals a sociopathic streak that is a source of much humour to the audience but not particularly healthy for the characters in the show. She also has an obsession with kigurumi, or mascot costumes, and does not think twice about manipulating circumstances or jeopardising missions for the opportunity to wear one. The flip side of this is that she is very easy to entice, so she takes great pains to conceal her hobby from just about everyone. Mint is also quick to cash in on the get-rich-quick schemes perpetrated by the other Angels even though she is the heiress to the Blancmanche Corporation and would theoretically have more money than she could ever spend at her disposal.

  • Bald Woman: In the episode "Slippery Pasta", Mint goes bald. She spends the episode hiding this from everyone, while finding a way to reverse the damage.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: She may seem sweet to a fault, but Mint is willing to kill to preserve her secret hobby. Never get in her way.
  • Cosplay Otaku Girl
  • Edible Theme Naming: She is named after Mint, and a blancmange.
  • Hair Intakes: She has a pair of intakes that resemble cat ears.
  • Honest Axe: Mint is offered a gold animal costume and a silver animal costume at a time when she believes that wearing an animal costume will kill her. She's not very happy when the water sprite tries to give her both.
  • Little Miss Badass
  • Ojou: Complete with a Noblewoman's Laugh when she's feeling particularly evil. Also lampshaded in several episodes:
    • In A there is an episode where they are dangling off a cliff and she reminisces on her family, who are so very very distinguished.
    • In X she remarks that anything with "Legendary" in its name would spark her interest as she is the daughter of a rich family.
  • The Smart Girl: One of two. She can read anyone else's mind in her case.
  • Unusual Ears: Droopy Rabbit/Dog/Cat/whatever ears that make odd sounds whenever they perk up.
    • What's really weird is that one time, she was shaved bald, and her second set of ears just plain vanished, as in she had a perfectly normal human head with no extra appendages. Maybe, they're just Idiot Hair?
  • Unusually Uninteresting Sight
  • Verbal Tic: -desu wa.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Type A


Forte Stollen

Voiced by: Mayumi Yamaguchi (JP), Alison Matthews (EN)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Forte_2563.JPG

Ostensibly the senior member of the Angel Wing, Forte dislikes taking responsibility and would prefer to go drinking or fire off some of her impressive firearm collection at the range. Oh and, speaking of guns, she almost as crazy about them as Mint is about her mascot costumes. While she is not given to elaborate scheming, rare guns are often the only incentive needed for Forte to take on a job, something the other Angels know and sometimes actively exploit. She has a very masculine personality and is sensitive about her age which leads to violent confrontations with Ranpha, but the two of them are the most likely of the Angels to team up when faced with a common enemy. Forte also has a curious father-daughter relationship with Commander Volcott, which is explored during breaks in the whirlwind of shenanigans.


Vanilla H

Voiced by: Mika Kanai (JP), Anna Cummer (EN)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/GA_Vanilla_680.jpg

Vanilla is the youngest of the Galaxy Angels and the most quiet one. Not much is known about how she joined the Angel Wing or why but she cooperates with or at least acquiesces to the schemes and shenanigans of her squadmates without so much as blinking, implying that she may share some of their interests or desire for good looks and worldly possessions. She can usually be seen drinking tea, holding Normad, abusing Normad in some manner, or observing one of her many, many religious rituals. She can also manipulate nanomachines for a wide variety of purposes, the most common of which is healing wounds.


Normad/Nomad

Voiced by: Mika Kanai (JP), Richard Ian Cox (EN)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Nomad_Normad_Nomat_chip_3405.jpg
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Nomad_Normad_Nomat_doll_8725.jpg

Normad is a living example of Lost Technology, a missile from some nameless war that started to develop a respect and appreciation for its own life. Knowing that when it exploded, the sum total of its knowledge and experience would be lost, it instead chose to desert and drifted in space until it was found by Vanilla in a field of junk. After blackmailing the Angel Wing into finding it a new body, Normad joined the cast and often contributed to their wacky hijinx with its knowledge of Lost Technology. It considers all of the Angel Wing girls to be crass and unrefined, with the exception of Vanilla whom it treats with something resembling reverence.

  • A.I. Is a Crapshoot: Now, normally he isn't too keen on taking revenge on the Galaxy Angels but when he does...
  • The Chew Toy: He's usually being mistreated by Vanilla and being shot in the head by Forte. Hell, he even took the trope literally when Milfeuile was turned into a baby and started chewing on him.
  • Comedic Sociopathy: A common running gag.
  • Companion Cube
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Living Toys: Subverted in that Normad can't actually move or manipulate the environment, yet is able to form some semblance of facial expressions and feel pain, depending on how funny it would be at the time.
  • Mad Libs Catch Phrase: "Oh, Vanilla-san!" and "Your rotten hearts/souls/lives".
  • Meta Guy: Normad is constantly dumbfounded at the other characters' irrationality.
  • Mr. Exposition
  • No Guy Wants an Amazon: He dislikes violent and crude women, and adores quiet and demure ladies like Vanilla.
  • Overly Long Name: MA347612890 GT40785791 32RS2400Z 17924398 TZRS 2000 modular semiconductor type 452963752391 MQTO GLS-equipped self-computing 0037 293165734285 YGNKTI 0120 YMCA 4126 PPPKG lower-right KKP 53 Normad.
  • Some Call Me "Tim": Since his full name is ridiculously long, people simply call him Normad.
  • Stalker with a Crush: The amount of devotion that Normad lavishes on Vanilla borders on creepy.
  • Team Pet


Col. Volcott O. Huey

Voiced by: Keiji Fujiwara (JP), Michael Kopsa (EN)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Volcott_1974.JPG

Volcott is a veteran leader held in high regard by the military and charged with leading the Angel Wing. Unfortunately for almost everyone concerned, he is well past his prime and looking mainly to preserve his pension and keep the Angels out of trouble. For their part, the Angels more or less ignore him or try to keep him out of the loop whenever they botch a mission. In the past he rescued Forte from a life of crime and the two of them eventually took on several high-profile missions together.


Chitose Karasuma

Voiced by: Saori Goto (JP), Tegan Moss (EN)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Chitose_8537.JPG

One day, a terminally ill Chitose was sitting in her hospital bed staring out the window at the rest of the Angel Wing playing hopscotch. She wanted to be friends with them so badly that when the chance came she manipulated all of them to try and get a spot on the team. It almost worked. Although she was unable to insinuate herself among the Angel Wing, she did manage to get onto their base by joining up with the Twin-Star Team where she serves as a recurring antagonist who constantly seeks revenge on them for having snubbed her previously. Next to Mint, Chitose is arguably the most intelligent member of the cast and has used her knowledge of their respective quirks to get the upper hand at least once throughout the course of her very short run on the show. Aside from her tendency to faint when faced with highly stressful emotional situations, almost nothing about her was carried over from the games. She doesn't even get her own Emblem Frame.

  • Art Major Biology: After suffering from a terminal illness for so long, she has learned to alter her body temperature and go into comas at will.
  • Chew Toy: Whenever she gets any screentime at all it usually ends badly.
  • Hair Decorations: Her ribbon.
  • Ill Girl: Her backstory is a parody of the traditional Ill Girl personality and she exploits it whenever she can.
  • Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette
  • Sixth Ranger: Subverted by her not actually joining the team.
  • Yamato Nadeshiko: Subverted in that although she looks like one on the outside, wears a kimono to bed, and has a very appropriate-sounding Leitmotif the reality is something completely different.
  • Yandere: One of the most devoted friends you could ever want, until the moment you show affection to anyone else. Then you'd best watch your back.

    Twin-Star Team 

Major Mary

Voiced by: Sayaka Ohara (JP), Sylvia Zaradic (EN)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Mealy_9265.JPG

Mary was introduced in Galaxy Angel A as the commander of the Twin-Star Team, commissioned to replace the Angel Wing in their mission to hunt down and secure Lost Technology. She is almost the complete opposite of Volcott; she prefers a hands-on approach to the job and can occasionally be abusive towards her charges. It is implied that the Twin-Star Team is her pet project and, as it competes directly with the Angel Wing for funding from the military, she resorts to all sorts of underhanded tricks when it comes to the rivalry between the two. On the other hand she is not nearly as sociopathic as many of the other characters in the show and gets along with Volcott reasonably well outside the inter-taskforce rivalry, which is not very often.


Kokomo Peyrot/Perot

Voiced by: Yuko Sanpei (JP), Reece Thompson (EN)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Kokomo_2494.JPG

The more spunky of the Twin-Star Team. Kokomo is generally very immature, loves sweet things and hates spicy things. He handles all the weapons for the group.


Malibu Peyrot/Perot

Voiced by: Tomo Saeki (JP), Danny McKinnon (EN)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Malibu_629.JPG

The more reserved of the Twin-Star Team. Malibu handles tactics and analysis of the enemies, and is more mature than Kokomo. He does tend to have a bit of a sadistic streak and enjoys tormenting or otherwise thwarting Kokomo's hijinx.

Galaxy Angel Rune

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/GalaxyAngelRune_6445.JPG

Introducing all (but four of) the characters from Galaxy Angel Rune! From left: Suzuki(s), Satou, Natsume, Mimolette, Tanaka, Nano-Nano, Tequila, Kahlua, Apricot, Anise, and Lily.

    Moon Angel Wing 

Apricot "Rico" Sakuraba

Voiced by: Yuuna Inamura (JP)

Rico fulfills much the same role that Milfeulle did in the original anime. She is the newest member of the Rune Angel Wing and the one least experienced in the ways of the world. However, she is more practical than her older sister and, in addition to cooking, she is also very handy with household chores and appears to be more grounded in reality than her older sister. Apricot idolises Milfeulle and frequently writes to her, which takes the form of the show's narration.


Lily C. Sherbet

Voiced by: Erina Nakayama (JP)

A knightly girl of regal bearing, Lily is the most serious-minded of the Rune Angels and handles all of their mission requests. Although the team is mostly informal, Lily is shown to be the de facto leader due to her reliability and cool, knightly demeanour. On the other hand she can be a real stick in the mud when she wants to be and tends to be a bit judgemental of others, especially Anise. As the responsible, military and humourless type, Lily does not appear as frequently as the other characters within the anime's slice-of-life context.


Nano-Nano Pudding

Voiced by: Satomi Akesaka (JP)

The Rune Angels' resident catgirl. That is literally all there is to say about her. Okay, Nano-Nano is actually a sentient colony of nanomachines that was discovered by Vanilla on some remote world somewhere, which she then adopted and raised on her own. Nano-Nano's clearest memory of Vanilla is how she told her to become a big nanomachine colony, which she does by absorbing all sorts of machinery. She looks up to Anise in a sisterly sort of way and has a good relationship with Natsume who is around the same age as her. She also plays around with Mimolette a lot by virtue of the fact that they are both cats or catlike.


Kahlua/Tequila Marjoram

Voiced by: Aya Hirano (JP)

Kahlua Marjoram leads two lives. The first is the unpredictable and ditzy sorceress whose experiments consistently blow up in her face or have horrifying results. The other is her hypercompetent alter ego Tequila who generally doesn't do anything and has a reputation for promiscuity and speaking in lots and lots of innuendo. They transform back and forth whenever Kahlua ingests alcohol, when she eats one of her special magic chocolates, or when the plot dictates that it would be funny for her to do so. In spite of her constant clumsiness, Kahlua has a sunny personality and is more than willing to help out her friends especially if it involves her main areas of expertise: cosmetics and TV dramas. In the crazy mixed up world of the Rune Angels, these things prove to be useful on more occasions than one might expect.

Both

Kahlua

Tequila


Anise Azeat

Voiced by: Satomi Hanamura (JP)

The easiest way to describe Anise would be some kind of cross between a space pirate, an odd-jobswoman and a biker gal. In many ways she's the polar opposite of Lily; lazy, loudmouthed, extremely spendthrift and basically amoral. In fact, she would not have been part of the Rune Angel Wing at all if she hadn't tried to hijack the Luxiole. She owes Mint a debt of astronomical proportions, one that she will never be able to pay, and it dominates her every waking moment. As such, she even more prone to get-rich-quick schemes than the Moon Angels on a good day.


Mimolette

Voiced by: Akiko Kobayashi (JP)

Kahlua's loyal floating cat-head-thing, who seems to have inherited Normad's tendency to have horrible things happen to him every few minutes.


Kuchen Baum

Voiced by: Katsuyuki Konishi (JP)

The concierge of Villa Angel, the boarding house where the Rune Angel Wing lodges when not on duty. Which seems to be most of the time. Kuchen has a tendency to be theatrical and presents himself as a long-suffering nanny who has to follow after the girls and pick up the pieces of their latest catastrophe. He serves as a strong contrast to Volcott who tended to suffer in silence, but it appears he cares for the girls almost as much as his more military counterpart. Kuchen can actually be seen in several places throughout the series working odd jobs as either a man or a woman, presumably to help pay the upkeep of Villa Angel.


Cdr. Isabella Essence

Voiced by: Yuki Matsuoka (JP)

The girls' commanding officer. Only ever appears over a TV screen, which is sometimes zoomed in on random and not-so-random parts of her body.

    Others 

Mayor Dorten Bein

Voiced by: Yuichi Nagashima (JP)

The mayor of Seldor. Appears as a CGI projection in a moving chair.


Princess Natsume Izayoi

Voiced by: Atsuko Enomoto (JP)

Natsume is a representative of the Arms Alliance to EDEN. Just what the Arms Alliance is never comes up because her mission as a goodwill ambassador turns out to be nothing more than an excuse for her world tour to try out the finest cookies in the universe. After tasting some of Kuchen's cookies, she decides to stay and sets up her own personal castle and requisite island on the outskirts of the Rune Angels' home city. There she mostly keeps to herself and doesn't get involved with the girls' onscreen hijinx but she shares a cordial relationship with Nano-Nano, who sometimes comes to her garden to play. Oh, and she also has an impressively shiny forehead.


Tanaka, Satou and the Suzukis

Voiced by: Fumie Mizusawa (JP)

Natsume's servants.


Kazuya Shiranami

Voiced by: Hisafumi Oda (JP)

...does not appear in the anime aside from two scenes. That's all there is to say about him.
