Asuka Langley SORYU

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.

"She may have looked cute but she was a real bitch" - Toji

Not even that complex of a character.

While the character doesn't have to be a likable person to be a good character (Kazuma from Konosuba is a great example of this), I still can't stand Asuka.

I just find her overly abrasive and arrogant, which is understandable given her age, but I just can't stand that type of character.

One of the reasons why I dislike Asuka (and by an extention, tsundere characters in general), is how they're written to be constantly aggro towards the protagonist and people see it as "cute" simply because mainstream audiences aren't comfortable towards softer characters.

I dunno, maybe this is more of a "me" thing, but I just can't stand Asuka or any of the characters that follows this trait.

As I long as I love the anime series Neon Genesis Evangelion Asuka is abusive to Shinji because Asuka is a dumb tsundere bitch
