I concede the point. I had thought that you had in mind a different reason, hence my bringing Kaoru into the equation.Sharp-kun wrote:See the problem with Lilith? She is not born of Adam, as is said in Ep 24'. By the seemingly correct definition of "angel", she is not one.

Early hints about something are not hints about Lilith when looked at without the benefit of seeing the final episodes. They hint at Rei having some angel connection, that there is some missing angel. They don't say anything about a second SoL, nor is there anything until Ep 24 (or, depending on your version, the inserted scenes in Ep 21', 22' and 24'). All scenes refering to 2 SoL's were added after Lillith's entrance.
I am once again forced to concede the point. They only appear to be hints about Lileth when viewed in the context of the series as a whole. Whatever else can be said, the final concept of Lileth certainly fits nicely with the early hints that were given about Rei. You are, however, correct to point out that most of the hints are carefully non-specific.

Perhaps, considering everything that we know about Adam, neuter pronouns would be the way to go?
