First story arc

  • Gall Force: Eternal Story

A galactic war rages between the all-female Solnoids and the amorphous Paranoids. In the midst of battle, a plan which was secretly hatched by the leaders of both sides comes into fruition, and an unsuspecting crew of seven Solnoid soldiers aboard the 'Star Leaf' is caught up in the middle.
