The US Navy objects to the latter statement.

Them and the Magi since they punked poor Ireul so bad he killed himself.

Iruel is the only one killed without the Evas assistance.

I'm not sure about my opinion. I might split it into categories.

Iruel was pushed into a position where he would die either way
Nerv just threw all this crap at him so the only 2 options he had was "death" and "death"

No, the navy, as per that episode, didn't have any weapons that could kill Iruel, short of an Iowa BB firing all forward 16 inch cannons into the mouth at point-blank(Ah, the Iowa. A Battleship that made the Japanese jealous because the Yamato was merely second-rate next to it.)

Iruel had two options:

A): Decimate whatever part of the UN fleet it could, and come back later, or...

B): Withdraw from the fight. Surely, the angel could withdraw, lick it's wound's, and engage at a later time. But, then again, Angels ARE retards, so I guess i'm giving Iruel too much credit.

Psst, Iruel was the Angel that was made up of nanomachines and tried to take over the Magi.

Zeruel, he got the farthest besides Kaworu and he took down Asuka and Rei so easily. That angel died a honorable death.

Something, at best, like an "in-joke" recently sprouted around here, but best assessed as dumbassery (4chan TM). Do a search for Mayo for the details, they should all be recent threads.

P.S. Leliel was best

As the Angel on a whole? Tabris of course. But if you mean REAL Angels, probably Leliel. I also really loved Zeruel, Armisael, Arael and Sachiel.
He was warrior and mystic, ogre and saint, the fox and the innocent, chivalrous, ruthless, less than a god, more than a man. There is no measuring Muad'Dib's motives by ordinary standards. In the moment of his triumph, he saw the death prepared for him, yet he accepted the treachery. Can you say he did this out of a sense of justice? Whose justice, then? Remember, we speak now of the Muad'Dib who ordered battle drums made from his enemies' skins, the Muad'Dib who denied the conventions of his ducal past with a wave of the hand, saying merely: "I am the Kwisatz Haderach. That is reason enough."

No one said Israfel. He's my favorite ... D: Although he (yes, I know Kou and Otsu are yin and yang, and thus male+female, but bear with me) is not exactly the strongest angel, I'm a fan of his design, and just the fact that he also seems to have a bit of a personality, not unlike Sachiel. Plus, he really made the protagonists think outside of the box in order to defeat him, which is a nice change as opposed to stabbing/shooting/eating things all the time.

And, come on, is there anyone out there who really dislikes Shogouki + Nigouki's coordinated attack scene?

IMA R/S SHIPPER SO HELL YES I HATE IT I HATE IT I HATE IT AAAHHHHHH!

no, i thought the jazzy classical music was pretty clever, because it was Kaji's idea, that sly bastard! lol Kaji is awesome.

nah, at one point i could see both pairings equally probably, but i'll save my opinion for another thread.

so yes, i like the coordinated attack scene. i like how everything was outrageously synchronized. i mean, i was impressed that they had the shell firings and the rocket-launchings all synch'd to the short classical piece. very nice, anno.

Ramiel! :D

I love Ramiel's shape and sound. It sounds like a traditional angel a bit.

Kaworu is technically my favorite Angel - but I don't really think of him as an Angel, anyway, because he's totally different from the rest of 'em.

Favorite Angel has to be Zeruel! Zeruel was just crazy, and then Unit01 going berserker ... Zeruel's ep is easily among my favorite anime eps ever! Sachiel is definately the most iconic, though! And Ramiel is awesome because he's just an enormous crystal!

I love the more abstract Angels. Armisael is probably my favorite.
