[A]lthough the story seems to me to bit rather heavy handed, the potential Rei relationship is nevertheless interesting.

What a Judge on Sammael wrote:Sammael has exactly the opposite approach [of Uriel], focusing on the character development at the clear expense of other areas... the cross it was stuck on was more interesting than the angel itself, and that was removed from the picture before Nerv even really got involved.
Another Judge on Sammael wrote:While this one doesn't stick with me the way Azrael does, this Angel just felt better in an all-around sort of way.
What a Judge on Azrael wrote:[My] pick goes to Azrael for being such a badass with an interesting motif.
Another Judge on Azrael wrote:This Angel stuck with me better than all of the others. I really want to see this go somewhere.
What a Judge on Ensuivanel wrote:Although NemZ is right in that "Giant Slimeball Enemy" is hardly an original or innovative idea, Ensuivanel comes off as plain but very effective design, and one that can hold its own in the face of some very powerful contenders due to its ability to quickly regenerate and shape its own body into physical weapons.
It may not have Shalgiel's environmental control, Uriel's deadly attacks, or Azrael's utilization of captured souls, but there's a certain feeling of balance to the design that can't be ignored. In my mind, it seems like an Angel that could slot itself comfortably into the original Neon Genesis Evangelion without showing its "outside" origins. That, and the way the presentation conveys the Angel's character, makes it my choice for best in contest.

The problem is, most people may still not take advantage of the subtleties of spacing in their entries anyway - that is sort of an acquired skill.
Also, I'm afraid that adhering too close to that format will result in entries that look a lot alike - at least for the uncreative lot. chaz's effort for example actually followed the format quite well (in spite of promises to completely deviate) and still managed to look quite unique.
