nihongo|Mint Blancmanche|ミント・ブラマンシュ|Minto Buramanshu is a fictional character from the anime, manga and dating sim series, Galaxy Angel. Her last name is derived from the name for the dessert blancmange. She pilots the Angel Frame "Trick Master".

In the anime

Hailing from the wealthy Blancmanche family, the 16-year-old blue-haired Mint is prim and proper, albeit somewhat snobbish. Her appearance is notable for having a pair of rabbit ears above her human ears, a trait shared by her entire family and the family pet, which moves depending on emotions and can flap rapidly for flight.

Coming from a prominent family, Mint shows a very polite demeanor, often keeping calm and graceful in speech even under demanding situations. She exhibits above-average intelligence, showing apitude in military tactics and coming up with clever ways to solve problems. With superior intellect and the charm of a little girl, she can easily read people's thoughts and convince them to take certain actions. However, her polished appearance periodically cracks, revealing her to be highly arrogant and sadistic. She tends to act towards her own selfish desires and have attempted to harm, kill, or otherwise hinder others to achieve them.

Mint has an obsession for cosplay, especially full-body animal suits or kigurumi. As a hobby, she would put on costumes and lounge around while savoring the feel of the costume. Her costumes have at times served more useful purposes, usually for disguise. She is very quiet with her interest and most people are unaware that she loves costumes this much. She seems to keep this as a secret, hoarding her collection in a vault in her room and once even allowed the other Angels to die before they saw her in costume (they survived). Nevertheless, she has on occasion worn or expressed unusual interest in costumes in front of others without as much as an odd look.

At age 20, Mint is getting more involved in her family business, though she may still be with the military since she still wears her uniform. Her most notable client, Anise Azeat, owes her a large deal of money and was forced into the Angels to pay the debt.

In the manga

A member of the Angel Troupe with telepathic powers, which caused her to have a hard time trusting other people like Takuto. She loves cosplaying, tea, artificially flavored sweets. In one part of the manga, she goes on a solo mission to search for the fake Takuto roaming around the ship. When she finally finds it, she is overpowered by it, but thanks to Takuto, no harm was done. Mint then learns to trust Takuto when they have a little talk while stargazing with the other angels.

In the games

Possessing telepathic abilities, Mint possesses the ability to read the thoughts of others, even if she doesn't want to. This led to her reluctancy to be with others outside the Angel Troupe. As in the anime, Mint comes from the Blancmanche family, a rich and powerful business family, the family is so powerful that, despite the rest of the Transbaal Empire being in chaos, it can still provide resources for Elsior. She also enjoys dressing up in costumes and, to her horror, is seen by Takuto while dressed as a giant hamster. Her Angel Frame "Trick Master" is armed with "Fliers", remotely-controlled weapons.

In the first game "Galaxy Angel", if Takuto chooses to take her to the dance that occurs halfway into the game, Mint's father, Darno, attempts to take her away from the Elsior and the Angels. Takuto leaves the Elle Ciel to confront him personally and bring Mint back. At the end of the game, Mint and Takuto develop a powerful psychic bond, which serves as a precursor to their romance.

In Moonlit Lovers, Mint suffers from some self-esteem issues stemming from the fact that her telepathic powers seemed to be waning (and also removing the bond between her and Takuto) as well as misunderstanding an incident when a half-asleep Chitose hugged Takuto. Her powers eventually return and she and Takuto eventually reconcile.

In the final game Eternal Lovers, Mint's powers malfunction as the result of an injury, broadcasting her thoughts instead of picking up others'. Eventually, even her specially shielded room is unable to contain her now-audible thoughts, forcing her to try to leave the ship. When the other Angels try to stop her, however, they are systematically disabled by Mint's innermost negative thoughts about them (for example, Milfeulle's distraction with sweets or Forte's obsession with guns). Even after Takuto convinces her not to leave, she still has doubts. Eventually, however, Takuto manages to soothe her fears during a perilous situation. Mint accidentally becomes trapped in a ruined building, and Takuto is able to find and rescue her by hearing her thoughts, which Mint had become ashamed of earlier. During the final battle, Takuto joins her aboard the Trickmaster as they attempt what the others fear is a suicide mission.

In Galaxy Angel II, Mint has retired from the military and is now the president of her family business in a branch at NEUE. She assisted Anise in becoming part of the Rune Angel Troupe.
