    It had promise at first...
    NOTE: Written after I watched all episodes.

    Oh Galilei Donna, I had such high hopes for you at the beginning of the show--original series featuring the character designer of SAO and by A-1 with a focus on European history? Sounds pretty different from the majority of the shows that aired in Fall 2013, no? Alas, a flashy opening and bright colors can't really save the convoluted, mess of ...

    Story isn't everything. This show was actually really enjoyable.
    Most people who gave this bad reviews are complaining about the plot being predictable and not exactly good, but I personally think that there are way more things that can entertain you in an anime aside from the story. Some of the anime I've enjoyed the most had close to no plot (stuff like K-ON and Lucky Star), but they kept me entertained with stuff like great comedy, creativity, great ...

  • Such An Interesting Show
    The concept is incredibly unusual, and I don't doubt that the historical context here is far from accurate, but I like the twist on the legend of Galileo Galilei. A-1 was such a tease with the romances, but that's one of the best ways to tug at your audience. I loved the show and I loved it's design.

    Galilei Donna - Girls Interrupted
    Galilei Donna tells a story about the Ferrari sisters, revealed to be the descendants of Galileo, and their adventure. Hozuki, arguably the main character of the show, is the youngest of the three sisters and more than a bit of a savant at engineering, having designed the airship they ride in herself without benefit of a factory. Kazuki is the middle sister and, despite being a skilled martial ...

    Interesting to a degree
    After watching the entire series, it definitely left me wanting more. The ending is a bit rushed, and many of the characters could have been developed more. The plot is that three descendants of Galileo, who have no interests in him, are forced to look for the "inheritance" he left them. Amazingly without anyone one noticing, Hozuki had created an airship that the sisters use in their search and ...

  • Lovely characters in a "anything is possible" world.
    I thought this anime was sweet. The characters are likable and the story is sweet (with a dose of action). It's refreshing with show that although even though it has a lot of the cliche type of story and character setup, sort of does it with a twinkle in the eye.

    Starts nicely. Takes some weird turns. Ends badly.
    Interesting background story about Galileo. Cool sky-ships and mecha battles. There is some psychological development in the characters. Original. Maybe a bit too much moe for my taste. The last episode is mediocre... no, worst: laughable and cliche.

    A series with great potential, let down by a lack of run time.
    One of the few things that can ruin a series or turn a series lackluster is that the story they wish to tell does not fit the time frame given to it. That is exactly the problem with Galilei Donna, while the series is pretty enjoyable to a start it gets more and more notable that the shows pacing and development took a severe hit because it was limited to an 11 episode series.

    a fishy story about sisterly love
    the story about three sisters and the adventure they face. while i do think it was a ok anime. it only really developed the one main sister all the others had no development. you never found out about one sister boyfriend at all. the other one dropped out of law school but you never know why. so it really about the one sister. the story so short and feels really rushed that you get the sense that ...

    I was expecting more about this.
    I will begin this review with the good thing about this show.
    The animation was almost perfect. That is it.
    The story was not good at all, because even the show having 11 episodes. It wasted time with a lot of unnecessary things. I think the story could have been made in two episodes, without the episode 9 and 10 of course. That would be 4 episodes.
    The op-end themes were not good too.
    This ...
