I thought I was pretty clear: a translation of the outline and your
description suggest that after Kaworu, one single Angel (designated
the 12th) descends from the Moon and destroys America and so on; while
Olivier claims this is a mistake, and actually, after Kaworu, a group
of 12 different Angels descend from the Moon... etc. I am interested
in how much weight to put on your description; if you were only
trusting the translation, then it's Olivier's word against the
translation, and I think I trust him more.
(Since if I don't trust Olivier, I need to toss out the 2 EoE endings as well.)
