Complete Series, Incomplete Translation.

"Okay, First let me say that Galaxy Angel X is a great addition to the series. I loved every minute of it. This series introduces a new angel that goes by the name of Chitose. She's a cute, somewhat selfish individual who always seems to get sick when something doesn't go her way. She's actually quite difficult to describe unless you actually see her in action.
Secondly, only disc one of the three discs is in english. Discs two and three are japanese only with english sub-titles. If you don't mind your anime in their true japanese dialog then Galaxy Angel X will be a welcome addition to your collection."
Only 1/3 of a dub?????!!!!!

"Was glad to finally get the last series of the great Galaxy Angel anime in one box set. Unlike Galaxy Angel A which was first split up into a box set, then as AA for the second half, all of "X" is in a single 3-disc set. However, for some reason, only the first 8 episodes are actually dubbed. Each "episode" of Galaxy Angel X is 1 long episode with 2 mini-sodes which count as 2 seperate episodes. This makes for 4 on the first 2 discs & 5 on the last one. The first disc has both English & Japanese tracks, featuring most of the original voice actors from the previous GA dubs except for a new actress playing Rampha. The other two are in Japanese only, with no dub. I don't know why it was put out like this, or why they only bothered to do it with only 1/3 of it dubbed, but it seems profoundly lazy, like it was taken up by Bandai Visual for the last 2/3 of the show. There's no explanation given other than Bandai maybe just ran out of money for it."
Gone too chaotic

"Galaxy Angel X is not quite as good as the earlier series, getting more chaotic and having even less to do with the series theme (military girls) then ever. Some of the stories are borderline unintelligible. But what is truly annoying is that after three sets (Galaxy Angel, GA A, and GA Z) this set only has the same actresses in English for the first third of the series. Suddenly for the other two disks there is only English subtitles. After you have gotten used to the English actresses, it is hard to tell which one is speaking at times since the Japanese voices often sound too similar to easily tell apart, and are often so radically different from the sound, speech pattern and vocal personality of the English speakers.

"Only the first DVD of 3 has English voices. What a pity - the show is so ridiculous and the actors and actresses generally so good I love listening to it when busy. Ranpha's voice actress has been changed out as well for the first disc.
This series is so sick. It's quite good for an anime comedy. Twisted. The animation could be better, but the fun of the characters and stories beats most all other anime series. It's one of those few series that realizes it is a big joke and just has fun with all the crazy scenarios using loser-girls as the focus of female personalities and vice.
Angel X might be a weaker series than the others, but not much. I definitely see why GA was a success in Japan. Pity about this DVD set being incomplete."
