What the fuck
GA was pretty much just before the time of 4chan. Nobody really discussed it in any depth by the time /a/ was created.
GA is a masterpiece, literally the writing and direction is incredible if you pay enough attention.
All I know about it is the newgrounds sim date I played like 10 years ago, never really got around watching it
I still remember that the funniest episodes to me mainly revolved around Forte being the butt of the jokes (i.e. everyone thought she was dead so Ranpha could date some guy or her fear/allergy to mice)
Loved the anime back then. Saw that they had a game but was not translated.
Fast foward a good 10 years and I find them all translated. That fucking summer was magical
This one doesn't fail
I watched 26 episodes of this when I decided to watch anime like a maniac back in 2008.
I figured I should go for some generic shows that everybody watched. The drawing style was pretty much the only indicator for me. I thought the general interest in anime online would be the older stuff. I was confused that 4chan barely cared when I visited for the first time about a year later.
I miss those days
Don't worry, I fap to my waifu everyday atleast 4 times a day like a mad man.
Shit, I can't read.
In my defense, the "good time" for this is apparently at night and both times those have failed.

Gun nut has my favorite single
GAbros are free to love her. She's too much of a bro for me to find romance.
Would definitely hang with
I want to touch Mint's ears. ;_;
It gets better in S4.
She's probably the funniest character.
Then she gets herself around 3 serious episodes and gets even better.
I loved her in this
I was going to let it go and pray that we get something going next week.
I'm still seeding the 2nd trilogy too.
Either way, it's a tie between Vanilla and Chitose. I'll most likely stick with the former.
I guess I would qualify as one of the GA-loving oldfags. I own all the DVDs, and it's still my all-time favorite anime. The body-switching episode is my favorite.
For some reason, I still remember that one episode (S2, was it?) where Ranpha runs off to get married while Volcott forces the other girls to combine into the giant robot that always fucks up at the end of the song.
I haven't even seen the show in years, but that was one of my favorites back then. I also recall those serious Forte episodes.
I wouldn't even mind if someone would just rip the subs from the other fansubs already out and re-time them. Makes me want to learn how to do it myself since no one else is going to do it.
That's still my favorite episode too. Someone who wrote episodes for the anime must have been /m/ as fuck.
>Watching ep where Ranpha wants to romance Male Forte
Oh god, what I'm I feeling
So who played the games here?
I think I've played the original trilogy three times total, and with a lot of dictionary help, managed to play through one route of the first GAII game, but ended up not making it through the second one because it not being as good as the first one plus my shit moonrunes skill killed my motivation.
Well, the first one was pretty good, but then Tact is mostly absent for the second one and it's just a lot more boring.
To be fair, Moonlit Lovers was also the weakest of the originals and then Eternal Lovers was amazing, and I hear the same holds true for the second trilogy, but it's been hard for me to find the motivation to keep going.
Doesn't help that I haven't practiced my moonrunes and months and have probably forgotten everything by now.
I found the second game the one that gave us the new cast some definite spotlight because the 1st game of the second series really had the old crew involved.
Boring yes but I found the romantic conflicts a bit more entertaining.
Who did you go for by the way?
I went with Lily. Didn't give the other routes a try, but she still seemed the best by far.
To be fair, I didn't make it very far into the second game. Up until around the point when Coco stops being a whinny bitch and goes back to being awesome.
Ah you were on the same boat as me then.
I went with Lily through the 2nd trilogy and then Anise while I'm still one the other's routes in the 2nd game. Coco being annoyingly weak was pretty damn annoying when you think about all the shit she went through beforehand.
She does indeed get better and becomes a hell of a lot more likable as it goes on. Lily's route is an offshoot of the other routes since Roselle won't try to get up in your grill. In case of that, you get the funniest route in the game.
I'd say keep going.
Hell, Tapio gets better too
I've been wanting to keep going, but like I said my nipponese was already weak as fuck and now it's probably even worse. Plus, I've just checked it and apparently my save file is gone, so I'd have to start again (which is probably better, since I've probably forgotten a lot).
It's hard to find the motivation like this.
Ah that sucks. The one thing I hated about the 2nd game is that it takes dreadfully long to finish a route while the final game has a neat feature where you can select a chapter and pick a girl of your choice once you beat the game at least once.
I'd say wait a bit and get back into it, there's still a story to be told and the 2nd game's final fight is my favorite fight in the entire series.
And when said Tapio and Coco get better, I really mean it By the final game, I absolutely loved the two moreso than some of the main cast.
I will warn you and say Lily's route in the final game is pretty damn weak in my opinion. In comparison, I'd have to give the award to most consistent route to Anise across the three games
I was leaning towards Anise in the first game, but then Lily's introduction (mimicking each of the original angels) was just too strong. If I get back into the games, I'll probably just keep going with Lily.
She has the best theme, too.
I honestly love the arranged version of Rico, Lily, and Tequila. It's sad I can't find them online.
Lily's route in the 2nd game will definitely be worth it while I already mentioned my somewhat negative stance on the final game's route for her.
That does the trick, thanks a bunch. Just need to prepare myself mentally now. Will have to do some anki reviewing before diving into it so I don't have to look up literally every word as I play.
>It actually worked
Happy to help any GAbro pioneering through the past and getting the 2nd trilogy finished. Hopefully you will enjoy it.
And with that, I think that settles this thread
Last pic since I won't find a better time to upload it
You really should. There's definitely a change in tone from the second season onwards, and the third season is quite a bit hit and miss, but I think it's still worth it overall.
Don't remind me.
We'll never have a lovable crew like this ever again
>finale of series
>all the actresses have finished filming the show
>everybody just leaving the set
Took thes screencaps when I watched it a while back (a few years according to the file dates...).
The repetition adds to the charm
Vanilla reminds me of that early Simpsons ep. with the Yakuza. The little guy in a white suit.
>that little girl hasn't done anything yet.
>Look at her. She's going to do something and you know it's going to be good.
Romancing Vanilla was the sweetest feeling ever
Wonder if this ever got a BD release. Most if not all was hard subbed so it wouldn't be as easy as remuxing it though..
Damn shame. I've seen lesser shows getting BD re-encodes.
Nah, just ploaded the screencap folder (~600).
The Galaxy Angel anime was supposed to be a adaptation of the games with actual plot. Delays happened and the anime production just ran with the basic character trait sheet they got.
Somehow it worked and later down the line, same thing happened with the Rune series.
They weren't so lucky there. But the games are better. Then again, as if anyone would bother getting them
The thing that always impressed me about GA is how many budget saving techniques they used and how many bottle episode and gimmick plots they could come up with. I think across the whole series they've used just about every premise for character hijinks ever devised.
I used to watch GA in AXN then Animax when they moved it there. I actually have season 1 downloaded and in my archive.
Oh and my favorite GA song is from the 1st season, back when Discmans were still a thing I had this and a couple of songs burned to a CD so yeah, this song loops every few hours.
Well, she can heal with her hands/nanobots. That gem in her headband is apparently a laser. And she can use her hair as a drill.
I think that's all I can remember of her special abilities.
>It feels so warm and nice, but it also kind of hurts.
I know that feel bro, it's the feeling of nostalgia and then it hits that you can't go back to the simpler times where everything you do has a consequence that might ruin you forever and you only had to worry about getting good grades and playing around without anybody judging you for it.
When did we get old anon? When did we ;_;
Just did this some minutes ago, yay or nay?
Seeing as SRW plots are held together by duct tape, I can see something set in the middle of Eonia's rebellion. Instead of fleeing to Rhome, they end up using Chrono Drive elsewhere and are diverted to the Earth Sphere. Most of the first GA was just them being chased around by Eonia's forces, so they'd probably play a supporting role in the overall story while the whole team just gets attacked by unmanned ships every once in a while, and eventually leave temporarily in a route split for when they go to the White Moon for the Chrono Break Cannon.
Voltes V pilots can all be swapped out for the Angels as a secret bonus, as well as Vanilla being able to pilot Mazinger Z. Domon Kasshu and Ranpha end up being bros, while Milfuelle and Akito from Nadesico bond over cooking.
It would be fucking glorious.
anon is probably joking that the nameless robot would be too powerful for SRW.
>mfw that robot makes the game easy mode, just like Zeorymer did to J and MX
I don't even know why I had a thumbnail saved, forgive me.
Alright, I've watched the entire first season and about half of the 2nd. When does Chitose show up?
Fuck me in ass onii-chan.
she just got told she can`t use that her head won`t go in that envelope!
Last time someone made a thread on this I said I had only watched this because it had an episode that catered to my giantess fetish. Only saw one episode.
Just watched the first season. Guess that episode is in a later one. Mint confirmed for qtest.
Are the other seasons worth my time?
