Eh, Kaworu isn't part of the natural grouping. Doesn't count anyway.
they never struck me as something to like or dislike. I couldn't get a feel for their humanity.
NGE doesn't really give us much of a chance. I think they do a good job keeping the Angels mysterious in a pretty neutral kind of way, but a little more "insight" would have been nice. Show was never much about them, of course, but I always liked the flavor that the Angels added, and I feel like there's a lot of untapped potential.
For a couple of examples, they could:
- work in the parallel of one group of motherless children fighting another (for the futures of their respective races).
- play around a bit with the IMO rather sick irony of children being butchered by facsimiles of their mother.
Sorry if I'm rambling, I haven't slept in eons.
