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.

Overrated but good

Her character design was not as aesthetic as Rei. Her messy fringe, twintails, eyeshape is an awkward combo that doesn't fit her betchy attitude. If she had a better design I wouldn't hate her. The hate for her is a bit overxaggerated, she is written to be fire in contrast to the chill Rei. Easily irritated characters need presentation too. That's what's good about eva, deeply flawed main characters contrasting to each other. Read the previous really old comments for more insight since what negative and positive about her has already been said.

She has a reason for behaving the way she does. It doesn't excuse it, but a bit of basic understanding of child/developmental psychology makes her behaviors and personality very understandable.
