• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Gall Force is a group of science fiction anime OAV series made starting in 1986 by the studio Artmic, with production by Youmex and AIC.

The original series concerns a Hopeless War between the One-Gender Race of Solnoids (humanoid females) and the Paranoids, who are an amorphous race that usually inhabits powered armor suits. The remaining crew of the Solnoid cruiser Star Leaf barely escape the destruction of their fleet in yet another hopeless battle, only to get caught up in a conspiracy that will have far reaching consequences for all concerned.

The original story has two direct sequels, in which Lufy is rescued ten years after being stranded in space during the original. She joins up with another replica of Catty and her team, first to prevent the ongoing war from claiming Earth and the Star Leaf's legacy, and later in a last desperate attempt to bring everything to an end other than the mutual annihilation both sides seem to be seeking.

Later, Rhea Gall Force and its sequels, the Earth Chapter revisit the story on a post-apocalyptic Earth, millions of years after the original series. The Lost Technology of the Solnoids and Paranoids have given birth to the "NME", techno-organic weapons trying to Kill All Humans, and the Identical Spiritual Descendants of the original cast find themselves fighting for survival.

The more obscure final entry in the original continuity is New Era, which has humanity rebuild from the ashes of the Earth Chapter, only to fall into conflict with a race of Artificial Humans they created. But the legacy of the "NME" is still plotting to destroy everything, and the only hope of preserving any of humanity lies with Catty's newest incarnation.

The series saw a revival in 1996 with Gall Force:The Revolution — an attempted Continuity Reboot of the franchise that replaced the Paranoids with a perpetual civil war between factions of Solnoids, and a group of rebels trying to bring that war to an end. Despite an all-star cast of seiyuu, the series was quickly forgotten, and is the only part of the franchise not released in English.
