The first two Angels preceding it are giant monsters are more representative of a the standard giant creature that attacks Tokyo, i.e. eyes, legs, arms, vaguely humanoid, etc.

Then Ramiel shows up as some sort of ninth-grader's Geometry homework, singing a beautiful melody of destruction. It's radically different from anything you'd expect to attack, and changes the perspective of what an Angel is or can be.

I think Ramiel is also a fun play on the UFO idea as well as s/he floats in this gentle strange way like s/he's taking his/her time. I really like what they also did in rebuild in that the form shifts and moves making it very hard to hit the core.

"Why is [Ramiel] so cool?" indicates that you, Magneto, think that Ramiel is cool, so why is your OP blank? If you're going to make a thread like this, at least offer your own answer for the question.

Not only his appearance (as in looks) is out of left field and unexpected. Its also how his presentation is handled. His first appearance (as in first emergence) makes for an awesome cliffhanger, while his destruction is framed in an awesome, thrilling battle in which the good guys squarely defeat the bad guy. This is something that comes out of left field for a series that up until that point presented all the fights as desperate attempts not to die.

Geometry is cool.

I rest my case.

Sorry, I really wanted to see the answers without the influence of my opinion.

*And I was too lazy to post what I really think about Ramiel the moment I created the topic.
