    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.


  • Born Lucky: Taken to absurd levels. Reality itself will literally bend to accomodate the most favourable outcome for her. 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.
  • Dead All Along: Played for Laughs. One episode is about a hitman trying everything to kill Milfeulle only to keep failing at it. The twist at the end is that Milfeulle was already dead and the one the hitman was trying to kill was a ghost.
  • 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: Not the brightest crayon in the box, that's for sure. 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: She has two large flowers on both sides of her hair.
  • The Fool: So clueless and blessed with ridiculous luck that the other Angels rely on her solely because she can solve any problem without even trying. 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.
  • Kindhearted Simpleton: She might not be as smart as her teammates, but is without a doubt the nicest of the Angels.
  • Naïve Newcomer: The anime starts with Milfeulle joining the Galaxy Angels. It gets Played for Laughs since 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.
  • Pink Heroine: The main girl of the Angel Brigade happens to have bright pink hair and wears pink as part of her Custom Uniform.
  • The Pollyanna: There's that can bring this girl down. She doesn't even know what a trauma is.
  • 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 Weapon: Her 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: She often cooks for her teammates. 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.


  • Anime Chinese Girl: Ranpha has a Chinese-sounding name, a qipao, Odango Hair, and a conspicuously Chinese-sounding Leitmotif. She also practices martial arts and her room has Chinese decorations.
  • Animorphism: She has the ability to turn herself into a pig in the superpowers episode.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Her dress has an opening that leaves her abdomen bare. It was covered in later seasons because of extreme censorship reasons.
  • The Big Girl: Ranpha is the most passionate, hotheaded member of the group and practices martial arts, making her physical strength only matched by Forte's.
  • Birthday Hater: Ever since she was five, Ranpha hasn't been a birthday fan because she hates to be reminded that she's growing old.
  • Blazing Inferno Hellfire Sauce: Her cooking sometimes is so spicy that it is capable of inducing amnesia.
  • Cleavage Window: Her dress has a diamond-shaped cutout above her cleavage. It's covered up in all subsequent series due to the series channel hopping to TV Tokyo who happen to be pretty infamous for their strict censorship standards.
  • Dark-Skinned Blonde: She has a tanned skin tone and blonde hair.
  • Drunk with Power: If ever there is a situation where she no longer needs the rest of the Angels, you can guarantee that she will tell them in no uncertain terms. Before crawling back on all fours when she finds out that it wasn't meant to be.
  • Edible Theme Naming: Her surname "Franboise" in French means "Raspberry".
  • Embarrassing Superpower: In the superpowers episode, while all the other Angels get a cool power, the only thing Ranpha can do is transforming into a pig.
  • Facial Markings: A distinct triangle mark on her forehead.
  • Fortune Teller: She sometimes reads her luck in love to herself and one time disguised herself as "Mother Milky Way" to help Milfeulle find Vanilla's lost item.
  • Girly Bruiser: She loves fashion, makeup, fortune-telling and is quite the boy-crazy romantic. She also is a crazy strong martial artist capable of wiping floor with professional wrestlers.
  • Gold Digger: Her dream is to marry some rich guy and live an easy, luxurious life from his money. Funnily enough, the sequel reveals Ranpha did reach this goal, but divorced her husband soon after because the married life was way too boring for her.
  • Hair Decorations: The hair ornaments on both sides of her hair, which look like bun-holders.
  • Lethal Chef: She puts way too much spices to whatever she cooks.
  • Massive Numbered Siblings
  • Ms. Fanservice
  • Odango Hair: To complement her Anime Chinese Girl theme, Ranpha has a pair of spheres on both sides of her head. Although, they're mere accessories instead of actual hair buns.
  • Otaku Surrogate: She likes to play Dating Sims, even though Forte and Mint think she's too old for those.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair goes down to about her hips.
  • Serial Romeo: She falls head-over-hills for every hot guy she meets, even if that guy is a gender-bent Forte.
  • She's Got Legs
  • Single Woman Seeks Good Man: While she would prefer a rich husband, Ranpha feels attracted to nice, good-looking men in general.
  • Stalker with a Crush: In the gender-swap episode, Ranpha falls for a male Forte of all people and when she refuses her advances, Ranpha chases Forte across the universe until Forte resigns to marry her.
  • Swiss Army Weapon: Played straight and parodied. Her hair ornaments have been used as deadly bludgeoning weapons, grappling hooks, radio antennae, and salt and pepper shakers.
  • Thinks Like a Romance Novel: Her ultimate dream is to marry a handsome, preferably rich guy and live Happily Ever After like a Prince Charming and his princess.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: Several of her get-rich-quick schemes have involved taking up Pro Wrestling. Ironically, in the first episode, Ranpha and Forte are trying to weasel their way out of wrestling and a gambling debt.


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. 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.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: She may seem a sweet and well-mannered lady to those around her, but underneath that there's an egotistical, petty and sometimes outright sadistic Manipulative Bitch.
  • Ear Wings: Her droopy bunny ears allow her to fly sometimes.
  • Edible Theme Naming: Mint's first name comes from the herb mint, and her last name from the dessert blancmange.
  • Embarrassing Animal Suit: She has an obsession with mascot costumes, and does not think twice about manipulating circumstances or jeopardizing 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.
  • Expressive Ears: Her set of rabbit-like ears twitch, rise or droop depending on her feelings. They also make odd sounds whenever they perk up.
  • Face of an Angel, Mind of a Demon: Yes, she looks adorable. She'll also do anything to get you out of her way in case you get on her bad side or might learn of her mascot costume obsession.
  • Guile Heroine: She's the only one in her team who actually uses her intellect to accomplish something in the missions. She also can resort to tricking people or manipulating events.
  • Hair Intakes: She has a pair of intakes that resemble cat ears.
  • Heroic Comedic Sociopath: Technically one of the heroes, but she has no qualms with manipulating others and endangering the lives of her own teammates to get her way or just out of sheer malice.
  • 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.
  • Keigo: She's always polite and well-mannered in her speech, even during her nasty moments.
  • Little Miss Badass
  • Manipulative Bitch: She will lie and orchestrate events to get others to do whatever she wants, especially for the sake of wearing a mascot costume and making sure no one finds out how much she loves them.
  • Mind over Matter: She gets telekinesis in the superpowers episode.
  • Ojou: She's the sole heiress to the immensely wealthy Blancmanche Company. She also mentions to her teammates that her family is rich and very, very distinguished. She even does the trope's characteristic Noblewoman's Laugh when she's feeling particularly evil.
  • Older Than She Looks: Believe it or not, Mint is 16 despite being about as tall and well-endowed as 13-year-old Vanilla.
  • Rich Bitch: When her mean side comes out, she takes her sweet time to rub in everyone's faces how very, very distinguished her wealthy family is.
  • Shared Unusual Trait: Her weird rabbit-like ears thingies are apparently a family trait. Her father has them and her servants too. Damn, even her pet seal has them!
  • The Smart Girl: She's the brain of the group, being in charge of military tactics and coming up with clever ways to solve problems.
  • Soft-Spoken Sadist: She speaks in a polite, gentle voice even during her cruelest and most vicious moments.
  • Token Evil Teammate: While a member of the Angel Brigade, Mint at her worst is willing to resort to dirty methods and sometimes backstab or even try to ensure her own teammates' deaths.
  • Token Mini-Moe: Mint is the smallest member of the Angel Brigade with only Vanilla looking as childlike as her.
  • Unusual Ears: Played With. While Mint has normal human ears, there's a pair of things that resemble droopy rabbit/dog/goat/whatever ears sticking out from both sides of her head. What's really weird is that one time, she was shaved bald, and her second set of ears just plain vanished. It's unknown if they're actually part of her hair or some sort of accessory.
  • Verbal Tic: She almost always ends her sentences with -desu wa.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: To be specific, her hair is light blue.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: She wears black thigh-highs with her Custom Uniform, leaving only a bit of her upper legs bare.


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.


  • Action Girl: Forte is just as physical as Ranpha. but prefers gun combat.
  • All Amazons Want Hercules: Despite usually acting scornfully romance-averse in public, it's revealed that Forte is secretly just as giddily romance-crazy in private as Ranpha. It's just that her standards are much too high (A Strong Man. A Really Strong Man!). Consequently, she's frustrated most of the time.
  • Bifauxnen: Whenever a male role needs filling. She complains about it in later seasons.
  • Boyish Short Hair: Fittingly for the resident Lad-ette and less feminine of the Angels, Forte keeps her hair short.
  • Cleavage Window: There's an opening in her dress held together by straps, which shows off her cleavage. Like Ranpha, it was censored in later seasons.
  • Commissar Cap: She wears peaked cap as part of the military theme of her Custom Uniform.
  • Cool Big Sis: She played this role to a little girl named Milly for one episode. Forte sympathized with Milly's difficult lifestyle and encouraged her to change her ways like a cool big sister would do.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: It's implied she had a harsh childhood in which she grew up in a dangerous city and had to learn how to use a gun to survive. She changed her ways when Volcott found her and brought her into the military academy.
  • Edible Theme Naming: Her surname comes from the German pastry Stollen.
  • Eek, a Mouse!!: Unexpectedly for the tough Forte, she totally freaks out when she encounters a space mouse/hamster. Although, she reacted like that because she's allergic to the animal, not because she was scared or disgusted.
  • Fiery Redhead: Of the girls, she's most likely to respond to annoyances with violence and her temper is second only to Ranpha's.
  • Gun Nut: She's obsessed with military hardware, practically living for rare and antique firearms.
  • The Gunslinger
  • Hard-Drinking Party Girl
  • High-Class Glass: Her signature monocle.
  • Hyperspace Arsenal
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She's a boorish, violent, greedy, self-serving Gun Nut, but her heart is in the right place most of the time. In the severely rare serious episodes, she shows a surprisingly mature, compassionate side to those who share aspects of her past, such as the little Milly and Volcott.
  • The Lad-ette: Described by Ranpha as a "man among women".
  • The Lancer: Forte is the tough, masculine and experienced leader of the Angels, a direct contrast to the bubbly, girly Naïve Newcomer Milfeulle.
  • The Leader: She's the leader of the Galaxy Angels by default, being the veteran member of the group. Not that she's that job at it.
  • Macross Missile Massacre: Apparently her cap and the shoulders of her uniform have concealed missile pods somehow.
  • More Dakka: A veritable arsenal of dakka, up to and including missile launchers. Still not enough dakka.
  • Tomboyish Voice: The most tomboyish girl of the crew and resident Gun Nut has a low, raspy voice.
  • Trigger Happy: She never hesitates to try her guns out on people. Fortunately for everyone else, she exhibits A-Team Firing on pretty much anybody who isn't Normad.


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.


  • Adaptation Dye-Job: Her hair is light green in the game, but it's closer to pale turquoise in the first season of the anime.
  • The Baby of the Bunch: The youngest member of the Angels, at only 13 years of age.
  • Beware the Quiet Ones: She once destroyed a whole city with the laser from her forehead because the citizens were calling her a fat pig when she likes cows better. It didn't help that she was wearing a pig costume.
  • The Chick: She's The Medic of the team, described as the most reserved, demure member and usually doesn't do much besides looking cute and helping in support roles during the missions.
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: She usually runs to heal any injured person she sees.
  • The Comically Serious: The way this little Emotionless Girl keeps her deadpan expression even in the most absurd situations can be pretty hilarious.
  • Determinator: Once she puts her mind to something, there's no stopping her.
  • Edible Theme Naming: Her first name comes from the flavoring vanilla.
  • Emotionless Girl: She hardly ever shows any emotion and speaks in a deadpan voice.
  • Extreme Doormat: She will never complain or fight against anything as long as she believes it's "God's will".
  • Eye Beams: She can shoot laser from her eyes in the superpowers episode.
  • The Fatalist: Everything will be as God wills.
  • Girls Love Stuffed Animals: She almost never goes anywhere without the plushie that houses Normad. However, she never treats it with care, usually using him as the personal punching bag for herself and her teammates.
  • Hair Decorations: She wears a tiara that resembles a nurse's cap.
  • Healing Hands: The way she uses nanomachines allows her to heal wounds with the touch of her hands.
  • Improbable Weapon User: She uses that crystal on her forehead to shoot lasers.
  • Kid-Appeal Character: Played With. Vanilla is the youngest Angel, tiny and always carries a stuffed animal with her, making her look more Moe than any of her teammates. Her personality, however, is the least emotional and childlike of the crew, being an Emotionless Girl with a cryptic religious devotion.
  • Little Miss Badass
  • Master of the Mixed Message: In the middle of his endless fawning, Normad does question whether Vanilla cares for him, even a little. He thought that Vanilla going after him after he was kidnapped was a sign that she does care, but then she uses him as a cushion as soon as she has him back.
  • The Medic: She can use her nanomachines to heal wounds.
  • Ojou Ringlets: Her hair is styled into ringlets that look like drills. One time, she actually uses it as a drill.
  • One-Letter Name: Her last name is "H", that's all.
  • Prehensile Hair: On one occasion, she uses her hair as a drill.
  • Proper Tights with a Skirt: Her Custom Uniform includes white leggings.
  • The Quiet One: She speaks very rarely, if at all.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning
  • Rei Ayanami Expy: A very enigmatic Emotionless Girl of few words with pale green hair, red eyes and pure white skin.
  • Speaks Fluent Animal: She appears to be able to speak with animals, or at least control them in some way, since she has been seen using animals to chase a guy who stole Normad and once spoke to monkeys.
  • The Stoic: Vanilla's facial expression seems to be permanently stuck in deadpan apathy.
  • Token Mini-Moe: One of the two. Right after Mint, Vanilla is the tiniest girl in the Angel Brigade and he has the bonus of actually being as young as she looks.
  • Token Religious Teammate: She usually comes through in the form of religious proverbs that are appropriate to the situation. There's a shrine to a strange machine in her room and she prays to it daily. It's also mentioned she frequents the church.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Leeks.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has pale green hair.


Normad/Nomad

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

Program disk
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Nomad_Normad_Nomat_doll_8725.jpg
Plushie

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: He's constantly making sarcastic quips at the colorful quirks of the Angels. Except for Vanilla; he has nothing but praise for her.
  • Iron Butt Monkey: Among other things, he has been shot, beaten, crushed, burned, twisted, boiled, eaten, blasted and transmogrified. Somehow, his stuffed animal vessel always comes out mostly unharmed.
  • Jerkass: He's a condescending jerk and constantly badmouths anyone who isn't Vanilla. This makes his status as The Chew Toy all the more well-deserved.
  • 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.
  • Love Makes You Evil: He's usually a mean-spirited, but mostly harmless Chew Toy. When his beloved Vanilla is hurt, he transforms into a literal rampaging monster, tortures the rest of the Angel Wing and threatens to kill them. He only goes back to normal when he sees Vanilla is okay.
  • Mad Libs Catch Phrase: "Oh, Vanilla-san!" and "Your rotten hearts/souls/lives".
  • Mad Love: He basically worships Vanilla like she was a goddess and his devotion can get outright homicidal at times. In response, Vanilla either ignores him or treats him like a disposable toy.
  • Mr. Exposition: When he isn't insulting the Angels or worshipping Vanilla, Normad usually provides the team and the audience with information about the Lost Technology of the episode.
  • No Guy Wants an Amazon: He dislikes violent and crude women, and adores quiet and demure ladies like Vanilla.
  • Only Sane Man: Normad is constantly dumbfounded at the other characters' irrationality.
  • 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: He was originally a missile until his program disk was placed inside a stuffed animal that looks somewhat like a round, pink cat/penguin thing. He almost always goes with the Angels in their missions or casual outings, usually carried by Vanilla. A good part of the anime's comedy is the abuse Normad is subjected to by the Angels.
  • Yandere: While one might not take his constant fawning over Vanilla seriously, Normad is willing to kill if Vanilla gets hurt or he thinks he has a rival for her love.


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.


  • Adaptation Personality Change: She's basically a completely different character from her Yamato Nadeshiko game counterpart.
  • 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.
  • Attention Whore: Chitose doesn't just want to make friends, she wants to be the center of attention all the time. When the Angels don't spend much time with her, she tries to turn them against each other, hoping they'll turn their attention to her (and it backfires spectacularly). Chitose also feels the need to constantly endanger herself and go into a coma at will just to see if Milfeulle cares about her.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: She acts all polite and nice, but the moment the Angels don't pay her enough attention, she starts spreading rumors inside the group to break up their friendships.
  • The Chew Toy: Chitose's role in the anime consists of two things: a) falling victim of critical Amusing Injuries, b) her revenge plots blowing up in her face. This carries over to the sequel, where she has a boring job as an accounter and won't stop complaining about it to The Narrator.
  • Edible Theme Naming: Her first name comes from a red and white candy called chitose ame.
  • 11th-Hour Ranger: She finally gets transferred to the Angel Brigade a few episodes away from the end of the final season.
  • Friendless Background: She was hospitalized since she was a child, which made it difficult for her to make friends.
  • Hair Decorations: A red ribbon tied at the back of her hair.
  • Hime Cut: Subverted. She has the blunt bangs, cheek-length sidelocks, and hip-length straight hair. While she seems like a Yamato Nadeshiko at first glance, she's really a mean-spirited Attention Whore.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: She yearned to become friends with the Angel Brigade after seeing them playing outside from her hospital window. However, Chitose is way too needy and spiteful to not ruin any possible friendship. The only one who does want to be her friend is Milfeulle, but Chitose suffers some much Amusing Injuries around her that she ends up being scared of Milfeulle.
  • Ill Girl: Her backstory is a parody of the traditional sick girl personality and she exploits it whenever she can.
  • Keigo: Her speech is as polite and sophisticated as Mint's.
  • The Load: Even when she gets to work with the Angels, there isn't anything for Chitose to do in the team. It's so bad that she turns herself into a doll to be the second Team Pet, but even Normad is less of a Chew Toy than her in that department.
  • Sixth Ranger: She wants to be this to the Angel Brigade, but became the new member of the Twin-Star Team instead.
  • The Team Wannabe: She wanted to be a member of the Angel Brigade, but nobody in the team likes her. She ended up in the Twin-Star Team instead and when she got transferred to the Angels, she's pretty much just a nominal member because she's useless.
  • Yamato Nadeshiko: Subverted. She looks like one on the outside, wears a kimono to bed, and has a very appropriate-sounding Leitmotif, but 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.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has navy blue hair.

    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.


  • Distaff Counterpart: Her character is basically the same as Volcott, except she's a woman and a more competent commander to her subordinates.
  • Hair Decorations: He wears a feather-like hairpin on the left side of her hair.
  • Scary Shiny Glasses
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Mary, Mearii, Mealy, among other variations. We'll just go with the spelling used by The Other Wiki. "Mealy" may have been intentional, given the Edible Theme Naming of most of the other girls. It's probably just a case of Japanese Ranguage, though.
  • Team Mom: To the Twin-Star Team, much more so than Volcott is to the Angels. Mary is like a stern mother to the Perot twins, pushing them to do a good work to surpass the Angels and trying to get them to eat nutritive food.


Kokomo Perot

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

The spunkier 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 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)

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

Rico fulfills much the same role that Milfeulle did in the original anime. 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)

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

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.


  • Badass Longcoat: Her Custom Uniform includes a cool longcoat.
  • Bare Your Midriff: She wears jacket-like top that doesn't cover up her midriff.
  • Boyish Short Hair: Her short hair suits well with her serious and dependable personality.
  • Catchphrase: "That goes against the way of the sword!" and "NG-da" (Literally, "that's no good" in a manlier sort of way.)
  • Curtains Match the Window: Blue hair and eyes.
  • Edible Theme Naming: Her name comes from the confection caramel, and the frozen dessert sherbet.
  • The Leader: Lily is the de facto leader of the Rune Angels due to her reliability and cool, knightly demeanor.
  • Only Sane Woman: She's the most normal and levelheaded member of the team.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: Her hair covers her left eye.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Blue Oni to Anise's Red Oni. Lily is cool, serious-minded and reliable, in sharp contrast to the loud, brash and irresponsible Anise. Bonus points for Lily having blue hair and Anise having red hair.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Lampshaded in one episode where Lily notes that she and Anise had been on the same team for 10 years and were still as antagonistic towards each other as they were on the first day.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Dark blue hair, in her case.


Nano-Nano Pudding

Voiced by: Satomi Akesaka (JP)

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

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)

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

A sorceress with two opposite personalities.


Both
  • All Witches Have Cats: She has a familiar named Mimolette that looks like the floating head of a black cat.
  • Cleavage Window: Her dress has an opening that shows some of her cleavage. It's a lot more revealing when she's Tequila.
  • Edible Theme Naming: Kahlua and Tequila are both names of Mexican alcoholic drinks. Marjoram is the name of an herb.
  • Hair Decorations: A diadem with a red jewel at the center.
  • Split Personality: She has two personalities. The first is the unpredictable and ditzy Kahlua. 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.
  • Split-Personality Makeover: Kahlua's hair is straight and blonde, while Tequila's is more wavy and purple.
  • Supernatural Is Purple: She has light purple eyes in both forms and she's the only witch known in the series.
  • Witch Species

Kahlua

  • Cute Witch: She's one adorable witch.
  • The Ditz
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: In spite of her constant clumsiness, the blonde 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.
  • Kindhearted Simpleton: She's a sweetheart, but also a slow airhead.
  • Mad Scientist: She's usually doing experiments in her lab that consistently blow up in her face or have horrifying results.
  • Nice Girl: She's the sweetest girl of the Rune Angel Troupe.

Tequila


Anise Azeat

Voiced by: Satomi Hanamura (JP)

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

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.


  • Bare Your Midriff: She wears a bikini-like red top which exposes her midriff.
  • Competition Freak
  • Dark-Skinned Redhead: Her red hair and dark skin tone makes her the most exotic-looking girl in her team.
  • Edible Theme Naming: Named after a flowering plant that's widely used to flavor food and alcoholic drinks.
  • Fiery Redhead: Magenta hair and a hotheaded girl. The perfect combination.
  • Girlish Pigtails: She styles her hair in low-hanging twintails. While anything but girly, she's quite immature and irresponsible.
  • Hair Decorations: A pair of blue hairpins on both sides of her head.
  • The Lad-ette: The easiest way to describe Anise would be some kind of cross between a Space Pirate, an odd-jobswoman and a biker gal.
  • Only in It for the Money: She's part of the Rune Angel Wing because she really needs money to pay off her huge debt to Mint.
  • Ore Onna: She uses exclusively masculine Japanese vocabulary in her normal speech, up to and including the aggressive-masculine "Ore" to refer to herself.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her twin-tails go down to about her hips.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Red Oni to Lily's Blue Oni. Anise is lazy, loudmouthed, extremely spendthrift and basically amoral; the polar opposite of the coolheaded Lily. Bonus points for Anise having red hair and Lily having blue hair.
  • Space Pirate
  • Tomboyish Voice: She speaks in a low, husky voice to match her extremely tomboyish behavior and speech.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: She's butting heads with Lily often.


Mimolette

Voiced by: Akiko Kobayashi (JP)

Kahlua's loyal floating cat-head-thing.


  • The Chew Toy: Mimolette seems to have inherited Normad's tendency to have horrible things happen to him every few minutes.
  • Edible Theme Naming: Named after the cheese mimolette.
  • Flying Face: Mimolette is nothing but the flying head of a cat.
  • Team Pet: Like Normad in the first series, Mimolette is the pet of one of the Angels and usually hangs around the team.


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.


  • Antiquated Linguistics: She speaks with an archaic style of Japanese, all the way to using the archaic feminine pronoun "warawa" to refer to herself.
  • Edible Theme Naming: Her name comes from the Japanese name for the Jujube fruit, a fruit which is used in the production of some confectioneries.
  • Everything's Better with Princesses
  • Facial Markings: The flower mark in her forehead.
  • Forehead of Doom: She has an impressively shiny forehead.
  • Hair Decorations: She wears two green butterfly hairpins.
  • Hand-Hiding Sleeves: She wears oversized sleeves that go past her hands, featuring the high-class variant.
  • Innocently Insensitive: A Running Gag in episode four has Natsume attempting to ask if Kuchen is a transvestite, but always being cut off by one of her servants.
  • The Napoleon: She's tiny and prone to comedic violence towards her servants if denied what she wants, especially sweets.
  • Ojou Ringlets: Two hair sidelocks curled like drills. Perfect for a princess.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair is about as long as her body.
  • Royal Brat: She's quite haughty, demanding and won't accept anything that doesn't match her high expectations.
  • Sweet Tooth: She hasn't been allowed to eat sweets in her entire life, so she's impatient to at them after eating the most delicious cooking. Episode 4 has her trying different popular cooks, but not being satisfied enough with their taste. Kuchen's cookies are the only ones that meet her expectations.
  • Verbal Tic: -nano ja, a reasonably common one for royalty.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has pearl pink hair.


Tanaka, Satou and the Suzukis

Voiced by: Fumie Mizusawa (JP)

Natsume's servants.


  • The Chew Toy: Tanaka and Satou have to put up with Natsume's whims and get beaten if they don't give the princess what she wants.


Kazuya Shiranami

Voiced by: Hisafumi Oda (JP)

  • Demoted to Extra: He does not appear in the anime aside from two scenes despite being the protagonist of the original videogame.
