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.

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.

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.

I know many hate her and I can see why but personally...

I could feel nothing but sorrow for her, for personal reasons. I know how she feels and it's an awful way to live.

She's quite probably one of the best written and deepest characters in the history of anime.
