To-Do List

Here's a list of things we want to do in the wiki, why not help cross some of them off? Also feel free to make suggestions.

  • Create manga and franchise page.
  • Help add images and summaries to episode pages.

Important Pages

When editing the wiki (particularly episode and volume pages) it's helpful to use this section as a reference guide.

Locations
When adding locations, don't forget to add parent locations. For example, when adding Japan to an episode or volume, Earth should also be added. Locations appearing in flashback sequences generally don't count.

Recurring Pages: ?

Objects
Objects should be specific rather than general, like Natsu's Scarf instead of just Scarf or Purgatory Armor instead of Plate Armor. General objects are being removed from the wiki.

Recurring Objects: ?

Concepts

Common: Humans, Flashback, Fan Service

Specific: None so far

Show has some things going for it.Good to great animation tho the cgi on the mech fish ships is a bit to easy to spot.Even tho it comes off as a girly adventure its really fairly bloody but with some cute parts.An best part is its not the normal global warming science fiction.It has a cooling period almost like a oncoming ice age.Its got a fairly fast pace to .

@Marshal Victory:

I stayed away from the show because I don't do well with big doe eyed Moe girls. Then again, I'm a hypocrite.

@takashichea: Um most honest people are hypocrits tho, least they know they are.Hell i know i am.Its those that claim their not one has to be wary of.But the moe that you speek of define it for me. I think i have a difrent definition.Thought it was the overrly emotional characters that registered moe .Kinda cute but emotional.Which drama queen used to cover .

Their is only one kinda whiny girl in the show.An shes the hand to hand expert so im kinda confused on the moe part.

@Marshal Victory:

Moe is someone you protect and doesn't have sex appeal. Though, I don't understand it. A lot of things can be Moe.

To me personally, Moe is used to describe girls who are damn cute, innocent, and pure with big eyes, naive, and make cute noises.

There are girls who are pseudo Moe like Asuna from SAO. She makes those damn puppy eyes.

@takashichea: So K-On! would be like kryptonite to ya then? An by that definition i dont think the three sisters fall totaly into that catagory.

@Marshal Victory:

Sorry that I got this off-topic. I managed to watch one episode. I was surprised, and I had the wrong impressions from the pictures. Loved the Italian mob scene.

Funny thing about Galileo's descendants: it's said that half of Italy could be considered "descended from Galileo" between the children he had and the amount of generations that have passed since his time. Having said that, this show is a fun bit of sci-fi pulp: three sisters in a giant mecha goldfish flying around the world looking for an ancient treasure and dealing with sky pirates, with a few darker linings of an oncoming ice age, missing parents, methane hydrate as a fuel source and a self-proclaimed Galileo otaku who might backstab them at any moment.

This might honestly be the best show of the season for me, and probably in my top 5 for the year. Right now it's a race between Galilei Donna, Kill la Kill, and Samurai Flamenco for wildly different reasons.

@DocHaus: At times it has that cowboy bebop vibe an then its cute so that messes that up i think.The mechs are not all fish but the big air ships are fish mechs.It has death an blood in it so i think that ofsets the cute.An some fairly vile villians.The whole style of the series kinda reminds me of Big O or at least the son of the villian does alot.

@takashichea: Ya this shows promo material an screen shots do not show how vilolent this show can be.Which is odd cause it has the cute but not overly done like K-On! .Which i like but im blaming my roten teeth partialy on it an my breahting meds.only one episode so far felt outa place rest moved right along on a good pace.

11 is pretty decent .It takes some nice turns tho some leeps of logical fate to.So far this is on pace to make my list.This would be a good one for young grils because of the science parts .Tho the time romance parts in my opion are kinda creepy.
