** I thought it was implied that it was all Ayato's conditioning that prevented him from seeing blue blood as it was. When that conditioning started to break (with his joining with RahXephon), he started seeing more of the truth.

* Why did the red dolem (Fortissimo, if I recall correctly) act hostile towards the RahXephon, twice? (once after the RahXephon hatches and once [[spoiler: when Haruka and Ayato are about to leave the shrine of Xephon. Given that the Mu ''knew'' what the RahXephon was, it doesn't make sense that one of their own would attack what is practically the holy grail of Mulian culture. It would be understandable if someone held a grudge against Ayato decided to use the Dolem to get vengeful - like Mamoru later in the series - but if not for that, I can't figure out why it would attack a friendly target.]]
** Presumably the Mulians knew that RahXephon could leave Tokyo Jupiter and were trying to stop it. The fact that this backfires horribly is just par for the course, really.

* The lack of any explanation about what the Mu, RahXephon, Reika, and... pretty much everything else important within the first few episodes. I watched it up to episode 15, and I ''still'' have no idea what they are. And if anyone tells me that it's supposed to be mysterious, don't; I didn't like it in Evangelion, and I don't like it for RahXephon. A story is supposed to make sense, not make the audience consult outside sources to understand the plot.
** Well, it ''is'' supposed to be mysterious, whether you like it or not. That just means that these sorts of stories are not your cup of tea. And outside sources are not strictly necessary for understanding the story: the Mu, the RahXephon, and Reika are all explained in the final episodes of the show. It's a story where everything is not handed to you on a silver platter; you pick up the pieces, and put them together yourself. Some people enjoy the mental stimulation this provides, and the ambiguity that promotes alternate explanations.

**** If you remember back to when Ayato's blood was drawn, Haruka gives a visible sigh of relief when she sees his blood is red but then is incredibly shocked to find out he is part-Mulian. If Ayato was really brainwashed to think his blood was red, then why did Haruka react the way she did?
