I'm not sure if this question has been asked before or not but any thoughts on why Alpha can't eat protein? Konoke seems to be able to eat it.

Perhaps that feature was not worked out until the introduction of the A7M3 series. Alpha's a pre-production prototype. Perhaps she is missing some features that were introduced later.

It is odd, however, that Ojisan did not know about her little problem. Perhaps "owner" kept her in such isolation that Ojisan never heard about her problem with protein. I think Ojisan knew about her, but had never met her until that day at the gas station.

On the other hand, perhaps she never eats protein and never developed the ability to process it. While all humans start life on a diet of milk, you have to keep drinking it or you lose the ability to digest it. The same may be true of Alpha.

On the other hand, her vegan diet is similar to diets followed by some strict religious groups. Her inability to process the flesh or products of animals may be symbolic of her purity.

I suspect that each robot has some variation in how they develop. All the male robots (except Nai), died off, so there doesn't seem to be guaranteed production results.
