Asuka Langley SORYU main image

Neon Genesis Evangelion

Though her mother is Japanese, Asuka's fiery red hair gives away her foreign lineage. With an American father and a childhood in Germany, Asuka is anything but typical amongst her peers, especially given her monumental ego, bossy attitude and hot-headed nature.

As Eva Unit 02's pilot, Asuka fights with aggression and defiance, preferring that Shinji and the others get out of her way rather than work together as a team.

Neon Genesis Evangelion: The Shinji Ikari Raising Project

 Asuka is Shinji's childhood friend and secret admirer; she is frequently jealous of her companion's interest in the lovely Rei.

Well, compared to the emotionless Ayanami Rei, I can see how this tsundere bitchy little girl is hated on by most people. Still, in the end she's just like the others, a little kid who's gone through so much psychological traumatic shit. That's why she's turned out this way and you can't fault her for that. It's a well written character and realistic to boot. Some parents damage their kids and this is the result. Which is why while I'm not heads over heels for her, I won't hate on her shallow attributes because they carry a much deeper meaning in the show.

Even if I hate Asuka's dumb tsundere attitude. She's by far the character that we get related to the most. The character who wants to pilot the Eva because she wants to be praise by people or else life is meanling less to her. I am pretty sure we people do things to make people proud at us at times and we all have self centered in time in our life.

Sure she's a bitch, but her backstory and the way she starts going crazy towards the end of the show makes you really feel for her.

A complex, well-developed, interesting and fantastically written character.

This is how you write a jerk, people.
