"Galaxy Angel is about a group of girls whose official job is to travel the universe, recover Lost Technology, and return it. However, it seems that the search for search for the Lost Technology kind of takes a back seat to all of the funny and zany adventures that the Angels have. One such adventure has the girls returning an old school I.D. card for an elderly gentleman only to be surprised at what happens during and after they return it. Another adventure has the team hunting for a very important cat and one even has the team trying to diffuse a talking missle and save the team from certain death.
The team itself consists of Milfeulle Sakuraba, a newbie to the crew who is 17 years old, has bright pink hair, and has to be the luckiest person in the entire galaxy.
Mint Blancmanche is an odd character with blue hair, she seems to have a thing for dressing up in costumes.
Ranpha Franboise is a tall blonde whose biggest ambition is to bag her a rich handsome husband (though they are rare in the first season), she's also very buxom.
Forte Stollen is another buxom beauty with red harid. Honestly, the only thing I can say about Forte is that she is a major gun-nut. She's always got one with her and tries to find the opportunity to use it in every episdoe. She loves guns so much that she's even willing to "die" for one.
Vanilla H is the quietest member of the group. When she does speak, it's usually about "God" but she always follows orders. Sometimes, it's pretty easy to forget about her since she rarely speaks.
And those are the Angels. The only bad thing about the series is that the episodes are only about 12 minutes long or so (but I won't dock any points for that). The comedy and gentle fanservice more than make-up for the short episodes. What's great is that the episodes are stand-alone and only barely tie into the overall plot of finding the lost technology. So the episodes can pretty much be watched without having to worry about missing anything. Again, this show is hilarious, guaranteed laughs in every episode."
