    Yeah the plot was kind of middling, agreed. I was thinking about your comment that the Angels usually enact some kind of cosmic change and that was missing here – I was wondering if there was something to replace it, and subtly at the end there is something about the way the Angels, especially Kei (but really both) are viewed through the eyes of their organisation changing. As Tia (yes a bit Macguffiny) seems to have an effect on how the Angels are viewed by Gooley. His and the 3WA's view of them always seems to be very limited to their chaos and violence – surely if they are cosmic Tantric deities they would as well as the destroyer aspect, also hold the Mother aspect.
