"Volume 3 of Galaxy Z is the final one (sniff), but goes out with quite a bang.
We begin with one of the more serious episodes, In-Flight Meal. The Angels are heading home after supposedly destroying a large creature, but not before it gobbled up many planets and star systems. The conversation is very serious in the beginning, with each of the Angels talking about how this has affected her.
But then things get weird and kinda like the Twilight Zone. First, all five Emblem frames are traveling together, then Mifuelle is alone for a brief moment. Forte radios her to not get so far ahead of the rest. They also discuss whether the creature is really dead. The episode ends leaving you wondering what's really happened.
We finally get to see how much Vanilla cares for Normad in Love and Doubt Fried Cabbage Cake. The episodes opens with all the other Angels enjoying a repast after a mission. Outside, Vanilla goes to help a child who's injured. While she's doing this, Normad laments what he really means to Vanilla. Just then, a very creepy guy shows up and kidnaps him!
When Vanilla demands Normad be returned, the guy takes off. What comes next is a chase scene unlike any other. Vanilla uses nearly every and any form of transportation she can to chase after the man, including a train! Near the episode's end, Vanilla has one of the best lines, "I want Normad back. Give my friend back."
Needless to say, she does get Normad back. What happens next... well, you'll have to see it to believe it!
Miraculous Boat-Wrapped Sushi is one of the funnier episodes on the DVD. The Angels are out on a boat relaxing, except for Forte who's trying to catch a legendary fish for a huge cash prize. Well, the fish finds her and what ensues is kinda like what happens in the movie Jaws, but much, much stranger.
In Forbidden Meuniere, the Angels are sent to save the last of the Mock Sunfish, a fish that has arms and legs like a human. However, the mission soon changes into a hunt for the mock sunfish after the girls discover that by cooking it, they will have beautiful skin forever. Mifuelle tries to stop her fellow Angels and ends up being the victim of several traps laid by them.
But, in the end, the good girl finishes first!
In Moon-View Soba Sans Moon, the show's creators pay a tribute to Star Blazers when the Angels assemble to help Mifuelle have the best day possible as this day is one in which all her good luck turns into bad luck. There a number of scenes aboard a bridge almost identical to that of the Argo in Star Blazers. The other Angels go to incredible lengths to keep Mifuelle happy. And when you see why, you'll agree they did the right thing!
Make sure to look for the deployment of the GA cannon. See if doesn't remind of Desslok's fortress!
In the "final" episode, A Never Before Seen Mystery Carpacchio, a food fight involving curry results in Forte's, Ranpha's and Mifuelle's uniforms being permanently stained. But just in time, the Colonel shows up with brand new uniforms. What makes them interesting is that they are very different colors from what the Angels had before. And, out of nowhere, each girl discovers she now has a superpower! Although I have to say Ranpha's ability to turn into a pig, not too impressive.
But, the girl's impatience and tempers end up escalating into full blow battle against each other. And when Mifuelle uses her superpower, it is something to be seen!
There is also a bonus episode on the DVD which is another poignant story involving Forte. She goes to meet a person in the city. The man turns out to be a classmate from the Academy. You get to learn a lot more about Forte's background as well as the kind of person she used to be. At the same time, you get to watch Ranpha, in full jealousy mode, trailing after Forte to find out what she's doing. This is, in my opinion, one of the best episodes done in the series.
I've found the every "final" episode of Galaxy Angel leaves me wanting more. That's why I bought the series. These are stories I want to visit again and again. I hope you enjoy them too."
