I haven't seen the movie yet, but I finished the show multiple times and have never seen either Ikaros' or Nymph's ears. Why is that?

  • I think the things on the top of Astrea's head are decorative wings rather than her actual ears.

They're almost never seen but Ikaros' ears are behind her hair.

Ikaros From manga chapter 28

But Nymph probably doesn't have ears Nymph From manga chapter 25


The protruding robotic wings on Nymph's head and Astrea's head are their ears because they have been used to communicate. Following this principle whereby the bell-shaped objects on Ikaros's head receive speech, those wings are their ears. I have never seen actual ears but those seem to fill the job. Also it shows that Ikaros uses those as ears which I hope provides some of the answer you are looking for.
