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.

Although she got a bit better towards the end,her character was just so irritating.One of my most hated characters,to be honest. Are all tsunderes so annoying?

She may not be the nicest person (understatement), but she does have inner strength when it's needed. She isn't so different from Shinji if you think about it.

Some people can be SO ridiculous. Yes, she has a sad past. Yes, she has her reasons. Yes, she's well-written and has a deep character-development. Does that mean people should love her, JUST because they can UNDERSTAND her?! NO.

Of course it's something else if you love her NOT JUST because you can understand her. Everyone can love who they want after all... I'm just frustrated about the fact that most people love her just because they can 'UNDERSTAND' her. Of course they can understand her, it's Evangelion after all, where every single character is so damn well-written. Does that mean they should be loved because of 'that'? NO. Characters should be loved/hated by HOW you feel about them, how you feel AFTER understanding them, not because you understand them. What I mean is just that 'understanding' characters has nothing to do with loving/hating them. Understanding characters just means that the anime did a good job with the characters. This is my only point.

She's SO annoying in the manga!

First of all, i like her design, i must admit her backstory is one of the saddest in the anime and she has some cute moments with Shinji, but her behauvoir is so annoying...I don't have anything against tsunderes, and fortunetly she's not the worst tsundere i've seen.
