- Angel Sanctuary Messiah
This video is, of course, a Messiah profile. It draws a link between Messiah's purpose, and what the angels had planned - to destroy the earth. Those who aren't familiar with the manga may miss some of this, but I expect they were confused by that section of the anime itself - not knowing who the characters shown were anyway. And the video ends up coming down more to an idea that the angels failed to destroy the humans, so a human makes his own angel to finish the job.
For those who don't know, the blonde angel sitting behind the desk, and again in the cell is Michael, Chihaya's adopted father and one of the few on Eden who were against the destruction. Taki is the pale blue-haired android that Chihaya first shows his wings to - but he's also the first 'creation' the doctor made, and learning of his death is what led him to create Messiah - his last creation.

[This song is in English, but it's hard to make out - lyrcs taken from animelyrics.com]
Wake up, shine bright,
on the endless night.
Release all my glacier time.
From him who is and who was and who is coming,
"I am the Alpha and the omega,
the first and the last, the beginning and the end."
"I know your doings,
you seek to live, but you will die."
"Be awake and invigourate the things that remain
that are at the point of dying."
"Fallen, Babylon the great."
"I'm coming soon,"
"And night shall be no more."
Hallelujah! Salvation, glory and power belongs to God.
Aurora, eschaton open eyes
Midday, you'd be no more boy
Twilight, though wings torn away.
Silent sea, Screaming ground, shining sky to fly
Emerald sea, sardius ground, Jasper sky to bleed
and fall as sweet rain
