The name of the song- like

The name of the song- like the episode itself- was an original score for the series, "Both of You, Dance Like You Want to Win!". (For the sake of editing, the song was run a little fast, but is complete; you can hear it's in a slightly-higher pitch than on the OST... all of which I have, BTW.)

This was the only time we saw those portable beam-cleaver/shield devices used. (No wonder a lot of fans disliked this ep, meh?)

Certainly one of the more 'attractive' Angels, IMO. Now Bandai needs to release the full-compact ver. of this guy, complete with pink/blue yin-yang head! Why they never made an LM-HG model of this Angel I never understood.

. . .

Wait, Josh- you said in the Shamusial review that they were to scale with the SOCs, yet here you say they're to scale with the SOCSpecs. Which is it?

These guys!

I like them but I wish they did more in the series... maybe that was due to budget costs. Double kick kills the core. These toys I don't know what I expected... Most of the other Angels are made of energy and abstract shapes wouldn't make good toys, hence you don't see them made. I had Sachiel Angel the first one they made he was the most detailed, badass figure. Gave him away... Kaiyodo toy I think. He stands on a small city scape.

These are great. I love the high level of abstraction.

Yep- Angels certainly were

Yep- Angels certainly were abstract-lookin'! I always liked the idea of not all MotW being humanoid-shaped, so that was a welcome change. (The 'new' 3rd Angel from "Evangelion 2.0- You Can [Not] Advance" is another abstract critter, and easily one of the biggest in terms of dimensions.)
IIRC, shortly after "Eva" there was an explosion of abstract-lookin' aliens & monsters bouncing through anime. (Someone check me on that please...?)

You don't need to check it.

Your so right about follow ups and weird creatures being seen after the EVA series in different Anime that involves giant robots, humanoids whatever it may be. You've probably seen some of the Anime shows like Aquarion for example... This has nothing to do with my fandom of Evangelion either.

Angels of poetry

I love Israfel, one of my favorite angels! It's so beautiful and elegant.
I'll try to buy both figures.
