She has a very fragile ego.

Joshua Reed
Joshua Reed

People tried to care about her, but she didn't like others comforting her. Shinji tried to be her friend, and she didn't accept it. Asuka is the reason why Shinji decided to nuke everyone AT-field. Truly the anti-hero of Evangelion, she's no different than Griffith from Berserk.

Adrian Anderson

Actually, no one could have helped her, specially when Shinji didn't know how to get along with people

She was half german and half japanese
That is the combination of germanboos and weeboos. Have you met germanboo weeboos? They are the wurst.

William Howard

She was a bitch, and her caretaker was too hung up with her own problems.

Hudson Evans
Hudson Evans

Without wanting to play armchair-psychiatrist, her problem might be called abandonment. And it kind of snowballed because she was looking for acceptance/stability within the most fucked up cabal of people since One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.

Chase Peterson

Rejection. As it's case with many EVA characters, she felt rejected by her parents, which reflects on her fragile ego and need to feel recognized.

Elijah Kelly

Jayden Long

How can anyone like her after what she did in that episode? The dead fish known as Rei looked like she wanted to punch Asuka's face after the inhuman comments she said.

Matthew Sullivan
Matthew Sullivan

It was obviously just her way to cope with the situation. She was trying to play cool when Shinji's situation was obviously affecting her. She's still a bitch for acting like she did, but not for the reasons many people believe.

Alexander Nelson
Alexander Nelson

She was "abandoned" as a kid. As a way to cope, she decided that she would become the best in everything.
She surrounded herself with that impossible expectation. She became arrogant and eager to prove to everyone she was better than they.
Clearly, this kind of behavior make people grow distant from her.
She felt even more abandoned and doubled down on the delusional expectations.
Its a cycle of self hurting and depression.
In the later half of the series, she was forced to see the reality and fucking burned and crashed in despair.

Charles Adams
Charles Adams

I think that whole episode made it rather ambiguous as to what her thought process was? It goes along with her previously shown narcissism, but then the hospital scene. The ambiguity of Asuka's character frustrates me, nothing is clear cut and dry with her. I guess that was intentional on Anno's part though.

Carson Perry

Hudson Jackson
Hudson Jackson

Her problem was that she kept shit-testing Shinji.
She was shit-testing him, since as only male pilot, he was only guy her age an overachiever like her could date.
And he kept failing the shittest. He just though she hated him, when in reality she wanted to fuck him. She kept giving him a hard time, because she wanted to give him a chance to put her in her place, slap her in the face and hatefuck her.
If he passed the shit-test, she'd turn dere pretty quickly.

He isn't wrong though. Both actors and voice actors are literally puppets in the hands of producers and directors, It's very common for them to not even remember most of the stuff about roles they took months ago.

Easton Rivera
Easton Rivera

The only thing a voice actor would know that wouldn't be available knowledge to the public would be what emotional direction they were told to take for a line, and even that inside perspective might not be accurate. The direction they're given is just meant to capture the right feeling, not necessarily capture the entire truth of the character. For a series like eva that's all about self delusion and mental illness it's all the more relevant. You're not going to tell the voice actor "Now for this line, I need you to say it like you've got an obsessive compulsive nature and an oedipus complex" and expect them to sort all that out with any kind of meaningful delivery.

David Cruz
David Cruz

On the other hand, voice actors--or, at least, seiyuu--will be given more context about the character's emotional state, generally. More insight into the hows and whys.
Basically, Miyamura has talked more with Anno about who Asuka is than you or anyone in this thread ever will.

Jeremiah Edwards
Jeremiah Edwards

They are denying what the seiyuu has to say because they are waifufags, it hurts their fantasy of who Asuka really is. They obviously are not fans of Asuka, but rather their own version of her.

James Howard
James Howard

Doesn't matter when an user cares much more about Asuka's mental state than she does. For Miyamura Asuka is just one more role than she has to play, it's really mechanical stuff and she doesn't care much for it, she just wants to get paid. For EVA fans, Asuka is a character they observed, discussed and thought about for years/decades.

Ayden Roberts
Ayden Roberts

Projection due to lack of arguments is a really common thing. I think that Asuka is a disgusting person and I pity whoever has her as a waifu, which doesn't change the fact that VA's word doesn't mean shit.

Logan Phillips
Logan Phillips

She has still heard more about the core of Asuka's character directly from Anno's mouth than you can ever hope to.

William Mitchell
William Mitchell

I don't care what she heard. The source material is there for everyone to see and interpret, and I trust the interpretation of a user over of a shitty Seeiyu any day. Do you saw the other shit she said in the interview you posted?

Q: What was your reaction when you heard about Rebuild?
SS and TG: Getting paid.
YM: A happy ending but it hasn’t happened yet. I wasn’t happy with the EoE ending. Shinji and Kaworu married.

Q: Who do you feel Shinji should end up with?
TG: I’d say Mari but I don’t like her.
YM: Kaworu.

She's so clueless about EVA that she doesn't even get what Kaworu really means for Shinji's character in the context of the original EVA. Hell, she most likely doesn't even remember most of the stuff from back then since it was fucking 22 years ago.

Justin Brown

Asuka's abandonment issues caused her to reject everyone, she didn't love anyone she just wanted someone to love her but was unable to accept love or express it. She was just a mess.

Did you faggots even watch it?

Thomas Young

Not just her parents, Asuka was rejected by every single person she tried to make a connection with during the series. Except for Hikari, bless her.

Samuel Morris

She never tried to make any legitimate connection with anyone. She's old enough to know that some guy in his 20s isn't going to want to fuck a child. She can't expect Shinji to suddenly be nice and accepting when she had rejected and attacked him several times previously.

Aaron Stewart
Aaron Stewart

The first thing Asuka ever says to Rei is that she hopes they can be good friends. Rei not only says no, she also looks annoyed at the mere proposition for no legitimate reason.

Julian Martin
Julian Martin

One time in elementary school I asked a kid with Down's syndrome to be quiet and he wouldn't listen. I didn't feel rejected at all; I simply realized that a retarded person has diminished capabilities of understanding. For Asuka to not understand this when dealing with lead autist Rei shows what a narcissistic self-absorbed cunt Asuka is.

Angel Anderson
Angel Anderson

She starts out by being courteous to everyone, then immediately shits on them. She's desperate for approval and love, but unable to express or receive it on anything but a superficial level.
She repeatedly tries to befriend people, but always end up rejecting them out of fear of them rejecting her.

Watch the fucking thing again, it's obvious. Trust me, i'm a Misatofag, the highest order of gentlemen.

Joseph Miller
Joseph Miller

Notice when she says that, her "crowd" is watching her. Its all for show.

Justin Gutierrez
Justin Gutierrez

Due to the death of mother she tried proving capable of surviving on her own, since she had to/might have to, so it was "if this is worse case scenario, I'll have to be able to do it".
The mistake was that wasn't reality or how real world worked. And in order to show everyone that she too was as good as them despite not having friends/family or anyone, she tried succeeding without it.

She also understands Shinji, and wants him to see that they're both the same. and thinks "Why won't you help me, we could help each other".
In the end, she gets this "why".

Your answer is in the first paragraph though.

Jose Collins
Jose Collins

I can't remember what she says in Japanese but typically when you meet someone for the first time you'll say "yoroshiku". The English equivalent is just a something like "nice to meet you" but a more literal translation is "be kind to me", which you could just translate as "let's be friends".

Basically, if she does in fact say "yoroshiku" then there's literally nothing to read into in the English translation of that line.

But Yoroshiku usually is a greeting, there is alot of animu where a Japanese student would use it in class when the sensei introduces him/her to class.

Landon Foster

Not really, Asuka new what she wanted and was driven towards it. Even if she sabotaged her own efforts and failed consistently. Shinji was trying to find the reason and will to exist. TEH REI had just abandoned herself, and chosen to only exist as the person someone else saw her as(Commander Ikari's tool).

fite me

Jaxon Moore
Jaxon Moore

What was Asuka's problem
She is a cunt
and why didn't anyone cared about her?
Because she's a cunt, though to be fait most characters in EVA are cunts, so there's that.

Hunter Howard
Hunter Howard

Rei never "abandon herself" she initially never had one (since she was literally born yesterday) so she wanted to find one first by attaching herself to the nearest person who treated her kindly (first Gendo and then Shinji) but at the end learning to be an individual in herself.

Jose Cooper
Jose Cooper

Rei was not born yesterday, it's a common misconception. Her body died but they put her soul/AT field in the clone/dummy bodies. She knew what she was, like Kaworu, but unlike him she suppressed it and chose to just be Ayanami Rei. Possibly because part of her was modeled after Shinjis mom(speculative, but we know she was part of the experiment).
When Gendo tried to use her in the end, she decided to return to who she really was, Lillith/Eve, and abandon Ayanami Rei, Rei only continued to exist, because Shinji wanted her to.

Nicholas Williams
Nicholas Williams

More like Asuka think she knew what she wanted, but she really wanted companionship and friends, the narcissism and haughtiness were just a defense mechanism. Shinji was the same but just put on a shell.

Ian Gutierrez
Ian Gutierrez

The so called directors cut which had the mind rape scene, which many LAS shippers use as evidence that Asuka had feelings for Shinji, was actually based on a Kawoshin fujoshi author named Nobi Nobita. The name of the doujin was called "Bridal Veil" and was basically about Asuka's delusions of Kaji, and during the kiss with Shinji she imagined she was kissing Kaji.

Sorry Asukafags.

Nicholas Young
Nicholas Young

That's pretty much what i said, she was unable to move forward from the past and continued to feed her abandonment issues by rejecting the people she wanted to be close to. However she still knew what she wanted, she was just unable to accept her past and move forward.
Shinji couldn't tell you why he was alive, it was only in the end he realized that he wanted to exist, and to learn about himself through others. The story is about Shinji overcoming the human condition and deciding to exist, grow, and live. Asuka is just a broken person that tried her best to move on but in the end failed because she could only see herself the way her mother saw her, and not the way f.ex Shinji saw her in his re-imagining of the world where they were childhood friends.
The main difference that i point out is that Asuka wanted to live, but didn't know how, and that Shinji had no idea why he was alive, or if he even wanted to be. Rei was likely just trying to be Yui, because she didn't want to become Lillith and possibly end all their lives.

Charles White

This.

Anno and all the staff basically sunk the Asuka x Shinji ship.

Jordan Watson
Jordan Watson

Ya, Anno and the creative team did every thing they could do to kill the ship. They are repulsed by it, and that's why they changed the name in Rebuild.

Colton Powell
Colton Powell

She was what 15?
her mom killed herself when she was what 6-7?
Dealing with a suicidal parent is really fucking hard.
especially when you are a kid.
I was 18-20 at the time and its a fucking long road to go through.
I watched the show before I had went threw it with my mom and at the time I couldn't even relate.
After rewatching, her whole ordeal struck me to the core. So much so it brought back all the memories and hard times my mother and me went through. It even brought me to tears.
I understand Asuka and completely sympathize more with her than any other character.
Asuka and Kaji are the only 2 characters I don't hate in this show.
Don't get me wrong I love the show but I hate the characters for who they are not because of poor design

Austin Cooper
Austin Cooper

It is very probable that rei clones are significantly younger than shinji and asuka. I doubt the cloning process started before yuis death. Rei was first seen around 2007-2008. She can be a "fast growing" clone.

Levi Martinez
Levi Martinez

Supposedly she is half their age, in physical terms. But her AT field is a copy of Lillith, with a dash of Ikari Yui, so the part of ther that's Yui is half Shinjis age, as is her body, but the Lillith part is far older. The Yui/Rei part is trying to ignore the fact that it is actually Lillith.
So she is physically younger, but her soul/AT field is older. So she was not born yesterday, she has existed always, but was physically born somewhere around last thursday and she has been here all summer.

Jason Stewart
Jason Stewart

Asuka isnt just a victim. Thats one of the points. She and shinji might had a bad childhood, but their own decisions later on their lives only furthered their suffering.
They are responsible for their own fate. Asuka is not a saint. I would go as far as saying she isn't a good person either, but i dont hate her, i just think she is a sad person.

Angel Hernandez

Don't bother arguing with him, I've tried.

Benjamin Collins

You didn't try refuting I'm curious what your thoughts are on that.

Andrew Baker
Andrew Baker

Not him, but why would you even think that Asuka and Shinji were in love? They were both confused children, both of them with a twisted and poor impression of the concept.
Asuka was unable to give or receive love, Shinji didn't even understand it's meaning.

Landon Mitchell
Landon Mitchell

I never suggested they were, but those posters that were denying Miyamura's word as truth that Asuka+Shinji are not a thing.

However, Shinji appeared to understand it when he met Kaworu, he actually felt love for him. Asuka has never really understood it other than what she watches on soaps. Her understanding of men are ones that are cliched and not realistic.

Ayden Scott
Ayden Scott

Although anno did talk about that doujin once, there is absolutely no proof the mindrape scene is even remotely based on it.
Anno is the only person of the staff that never denied any relationship nor any theory, and the entire series is crafted with this shroud of uncertainty around it.

Any, and i mean ANY direct affirmation about pairing and development is by its very definition wrong and go against everything the series presented. We can only deal in possibilities.
Fucking Grant got it and she is a crazy old woman who never even talked with anno herself. Everyone at the main staff are just pushing their shitty shippings that have as much validation as ours here.

Hunter Martin

Hudson Howard

Has anyone ever asked Anno on what what his thoughts were on on Asuka+Shinji? Why did he deliberately make this so vague? We wouldn't be having this discussion if he just strait up said the truth. Its like asking who the G-man is in Half-Life.

John Perez
John Perez

Tell me, is there any way to talk about eva without playing the armchair freudian psychiatrist? "It happened because of their mothers and sex drive" fit literally any question about this series.

Connor Fisher
Connor Fisher

Ah okay. Though i think Kaworu just made him realize that love was something he wanted, that there were things worth holding onto. Shinji might have had the same effect on Rei. Though it wasn't until instrumentality that Shinji finally realized that things other than himself mattered, and that he had a reason to exist beyond just breathing.
I think all shipfaggotry in EVA is retarded, except in the case of class rep and Toji(not sure if i remembered his name right), even though it was one side it seemed like they were both being set up as a couple. Not that i'm invested in them at all.

Cameron Nguyen

Thomas Brown

I believe he would refuse to say anything. At least 1995 anno. Current anno seen to be on the Rei x Shinji ship, given all 3 rebuilds hint towards that. Which is funny how he used to heavily criticize rei and called her creepy during NGE release. Gotta get that otaku money.

Noah Rivera
Noah Rivera

Didn't they make Rei a dead fish in 3.33 and make it dedicated to Kaworu? How could any of the girls kind of be end game when 3.33 hints that Shinji will see Kaworu again.

Hudson Taylor

Yeah, Eva is not the franchise for shipping. That's more for slice of life type anime.

It ended with she being "lost" and following shinji and asuka, probably setting up a redemption and or a bigger role with Ghost Rei / Lilith
Plus the entire "Untill you come" PV

Samuel Rogers

Asuka: Understand!? This is the wall of Jericho!!
Asuka: One step beyond and you will be sentenced to death!!
Shinji: O-okay...
(A wall.)
Asuka: (See, he won't come across.
As I thought, he doesn't have the courage.)

Why even bother sending signals like that if you don't deep down want a response? What would she do if he did come in the room, tell him to leave? If she had no interest, why invite him like that instead of just going in her room and go to sleep?

Jason Richardson

Logan Diaz

The only ship Anno has ever talked about was Kaworu+Shinji

He doesn't even consider any other ship with Shinji, that's why he never talked about it
It's your misinterpretation, he never meant to portray them that way

Henry Lopez
Henry Lopez

Because she wants validation, she wants him to chase after her because it makes her feel like she's wanted.

It's not him that she has any feelings for, she just likes the feeling of people paying attention to her and desiring her. Any boy would do. And the fact that Shinji was ignoring her advances was pissing her off because it made her feel like even a little faggot like him doesn't even want her.

Levi Gutierrez
Levi Gutierrez

Any boy would do
Bull fucking shit.
Her locker was literally full with love letters
She just left a date with someone who obviously liked her.
She wanted shinji.

Camden Cooper

Then why not seek validation from the dozens that sent love letters, or the one she went on a date with?

Christian Russell
Christian Russell

Fucking retard, reread my post:
she just likes the feeling of people paying attention to her and desiring her
Those people were already giving her attention, giving her exactly what she wanted. She had no more use for them.

It's the people who don't give her that validation, Kaji and Shinji, that makes her chase after them all the more. As soon as Shinji gave it to her she'd drop him like all the other boys too.
He's just an ugly little faggot to her, but when that ugly little faggot deliberately ignores her, that's the biggest hit to her pride.

Colton Morgan
Colton Morgan

Then he shouldn't have made her ask to kiss Shinji, it makes her look like a slut who manipulates men to do what they want.

Jason Perry
Jason Perry

maybe because shinji seemed unattainable and more on her level but I have the feeling that we're far beyond what the writers initially considered when writing those interactions here

Daniel James
Daniel James

Nah, it makes her look like your average teenage girl.

Asuka was trying to manipulate everyone.

Jose Hernandez
Jose Hernandez

The writers never had the intention of portraying Shinji and Asuka's relationship as romantic.
Sexual tension, sure, but all there was were hormones and desperation. No genuine love there.

That's why Asuka was happy when he died and Shinji didn't care when she was getting eaten by the harpies.
Also why her seiyuu and all the staff keep drowning any possiblity of them as a couple. The shippers are delusional and misinterpreted the series for 20 years.

Anthony Barnes

He didn't get up, he didn't scream her name, he just sat there and shivered like a baby.

Jaxon Ward

Watch Evangelion 2.22 and 3.33
Don't understand how the story progresses from the second film to the third

Hunter Morales
Hunter Morales

Thats how normal people normally react to the death of their friends, specially depressed people.

Jacob White
Jacob White

Which Shinji did for Misato and Rei, people he actually cares about.
He never cried when Asuka died. He freaked out at the sight of her mangled body, and then was smiling and laughing 2 seconds later when he saw Kaworu.

Poor Asuka, literally no one gave a shit about her even in the end.

Anyone would be horrified if they saw a mangled body.

forced to watch while he thinks his friend from school is brutally killed while viewing it from the seat of the eva, while completely powerless to do anything about it
personally turns the only person that showed any compassion to him into ground beef, because if he doesn't every one he cares about will die

turns into a winged devil and screams like a banshee apon seeing the remains of unit 02

Her personality is quintessentially Japanese based on the emphasis on work and performance in the culture. I would say it was authorial intent to paint her as this dysfunctional product of Japanese perfection culture that often casts aside more intimate degrees of parental care. This was a subtle message as well since Asuka is part German

This is a good take

Jayden Lee

Asuka is the best character. She has a heart of gold and all she wants is a friend, but everyone rebuffs her.

No father at all.

Her mother ignores her for a phony doll and tries to kill her.

On her first encounter with Rei she asks to be besties so they can talk about robots and boys, but cold cruel Rei can't think of anyone besides herself and says no.

Misato invites Shinji into her house out of kindness but only offers it to Asuka out of mission requirements. She cries over Shinji when he comes back to life or whatever, but does she care when Asuka falters? No, she just calls her a bitch and fires her.

Kaji doesn't bang her after she offers herself to him completely, and remember, there are less taboos in the Evangelion universe because of the drastically reduced population. And Asuka is a savant, well ahead of her years.

Shinji won't pay attention to her, or even hold her when she kisses him.

And through all this, she still does her job and tries to be friends with others. She invites Rei to dinner, she saves Shinji and waits for him when he is in the hospital.

Who waits for Asuka in the hospital?

All she wanted was a friend and she poured her little heart out to get it, but no one would pay her any heed.

kinda like how shinji is supposed to be an example of a "depressed" person but instead just comes off as a depraved lecher and massive douchebag

Evanglion is full of character with problems that would be impossible for a 2nd party to solve.

The joke is that they blame others rather than themselves for how they are and as such never try saving THEMSELVES

This is why the monogatari series has done so well as it is show keenly aware of this.

Does anyone else notice only Evangelion characters get this much in depth discussion on Sup Forums? God damn. 22 years later and people still don't get tired of discussing, arguing and shitposting about Eva.

Do any oldfags remember when there was a period of time on Sup Forums where Evangelion threads were literally banned because they would generate so much autistic shitposting, and to even mention Evangelion in other threads for whatever reason was frowned upon by everyone excluding Evafags? It was only 5 years ago when Eva Generals had to be banned because of how insane those threads got thanks to the controversy with 3.0.

Asuka is a cowardly whore. She has no concept of love, just the lust coming from her dripping cunt. She has no concept of courage, just bravado from an ego that has been groomed for years by the people in power over her.

Kaji was a better person, he refused the whore's advances.

Rei was a better person, she actually had the courage to be there by Shinji's side during the hospital stay Asuka placed him in, while Asuka cowered outside like the weakling she is.

Tyler Wright

Shinji Ikari falls in love with an Asuka Langley Soryu.

Unable to confess, he is gifted by a deus ex machina with the German girl's phone number. Never minding the strange area code, he immediately calls her, and is overjoyed to find out that she has a crush on him as well.

But, the next day, when he recounts the previous day's confessions to the girl, she only looks at him with a perplexed expression, asking, "Anta baka?" After some investigation, he finds out that the redhead he called is not the same bitch he fell in love with. In fact, she doesn't exist in this universe at all. She is Asuka Shikinami Langley, Asuka Langley Soryu's alternate universe counterpart who has fallen in love with Shinji's own AU self who too is blissfully unaware of her crush.

Hijinks ensue as the two strike up a deal to give each other their darkest, most private secrets in order to equip the other with the weapons they need to conquer the heart of their other selves. While the two chase their respective loved ones, DRAMA ensues as they begin to fall in love with each other instead and question the NATURE of TSUNDERE.

Shinji Ikari falls in love with Rei Ayanami.

Unable to confess, he is gifted by a deus ex machina with the albino girl's phone number. Never minding the strange area code, he immediately calls her, and is overjoyed to find out that she has a crush on him as well.

But, the next day, when he recounts the previous day's confessions to Rei, she only looks at him with a blank expression on her face. After some investigation, he finds out that the girl he called is not the same clone he fell in love with. In fact, she doesn't exist in this universe at all. She is the girl's alternate universe counterpart, who has fallen in love with the Eva pilot's own AU self, who too is blissfully unaware of her crush.

Hijinks ensue as the two strike up a deal to give each other their darkest, most private secrets in order to equip the other with the weapons they need to conquer the heart of their other selves. While the two chase their respective loved ones, DRAMA ensues as they begin to fall in love with each other instead and question the NATURE of NON-HUMANS.

That was my whole point. I agree that non of that justify her actions, after ep. 16 I completely hated her.

Jackson Gray
Jackson Gray

Then why are you defending her? I didn't hate her until episode 22, because 22 was supposed to be the GRAND REVELATION of Asuka's backstory. And then it's shown what a complete joke she is. Remember, Shinji shows genuine concern for her family and she responds by cussing him out. Rei shows genuine concern for her health and she responds by assaulting her.

Then she is literally defeated in battle by a powerpoint presentation.

Ryan Campbell

Logan Smith

but you know what it is like reliving memories
Yeah it is difficult to face your failures and your flaws. You face them anyway and become stronger from it.

You don't scream and say (and I quote) "no I don't want to see this part of me anymore". That's not just weakness, it's pathetic, and garners zero sympathy.

Blake Hall

Tyler Adams

Apparently it does because there are people willing to defend her. I think every Eva character is intentionally pathetic

Jack Moore

intentionally pathetic.
Yes they are, but some rise above that. Shinji is a pussy, but he launches into war with tears in his eyes.

Rei is abused and neglected, but she harbors no hatred towards anyone.

Those two individuals are strong. Asuka isn't.

Aaron Lee
Aaron Lee

It fit better with Asuka because of the drastic difference between Soryuu and Shikinami.

something completely outside of the series itself

If you need to come out and explain shit yourself, congratulations, your series is a total failure, and I don't think this is the case for NGE.

Easton Lopez
Easton Lopez

NGE was such a failure that Anno was forced to make a movie two years later (EoE), and then release a video game explaining the lore a few years after that.

Owen Powell
Owen Powell

Oh, I always forget EoE is a separate thing from NGE, since the two are always so tied together in my mind.
Still, releasing a new movie to wrap things up, is completely different from having a seiyuu be a more trustworthy source of information about a character than the show itself, thus, making user a faggot.

Grayson Flores
Grayson Flores

The show itself just corroborates what she says.
She has more insight into Asuka's character and what Anno was trying to go for than you ever will.

The only reason you disagree is because you're trying to self-insert and use Eva as escapism, doing the exact opposite of what Anno wants you to do.

Lucas Butler
Lucas Butler

I thought those video games are not canon?

David Reyes
David Reyes

Not really, I didn't even pay attention to those posts extensively, I just think bringing voice actors into this is incredibly stupid, but I am not a shipper myself.
She has more insight into Asuka's character and what Anno was trying to go for than you ever will.
the voice actor gets it because he explained it to her, and you can't possibly get it, because Anno is a hack and can't convey a message effectively enough on his own

Alexander Reed
Alexander Reed

The biggest mistake anyone can make when watching this show is either A.) Self-inserting as Shinji or B.) Thinking any of the characters are relatable or even supposed to be relatable.

Jaxson Ortiz

Only delusional shippers will disagree because they intentionally misinterpret her character for escapist purposes.

Christian Price

Anno didn't even write Asuka's character, Satsukawa and that Kawoshin fujoshi author did. And we already know what their opinion on this subject is.

Not as a whole obviously, the situation and circumstances are to fucking nuts. But there are aspects of their personalities that are relatable.

Gabriel Gutierrez

user, please. From 2007 to 2013 Mari existed for 6 fucking years and Sadamoto admitted that he have no idea what her character is.
Anno purposely kept major parts of episode 24 in secret till a few minutes before release, even from part of the staff.

Anno doesnt share the "explanations of the characters" with no one, even his staff, and there is evidence supporting my arguments, unlike yours. You are pulling this "she knows more than you" out of your fucking ass. Show me any proof of your argument.

Isaac Reed

Jacob Ramirez

Its a pointless war, most people who shit on a pairing are doing so to support their own shippings.

Things werent exactly as expected but the show is really strong by itself and would hold out even without EoE. Why are even on a fucking eva thread if you think the show is a failure?

Brandon Lewis

Josiah Mitchell
Josiah Mitchell

Tsurumaki told us that Mari was for marketing purposes right when 2.0 came out, retard. There was no secret.

Anno purposely kept major parts of episode 24 in secret till a few minutes before release, even from part of the staff.
All loreshit, not charactershit which was spoonfed to us in the last two episodes of the show. The loreshit is the only 2deep4u convoluted aspect of the show, anything to do with the characters is basic psychology that a 4 year old could understand unless you're some autistic freak.

Anno doesnt share the "explanations of the characters" with no one, even his staff
He literally did with Asuka's seiyuu when she asked about the final line of EoE.
He literally did with Rei's seiyuu when she asked about the scene in 2.0's preview.

Also, see:

James Diaz

This. All of Eva's characters are basically walking personality disorders. Very easy to understand. "deep" in the sense that they have one layer. That's it.

Because we're people and we understand human emotions.

Sebastian Thomas

understanding =/= tolerating
She's a bitch and not fun at all. She may be direct, but she's also someone who only wants her way and constantly berates you if it doesn't. And even if it does, she will. Because her life is jus that empty and shitty.
Fuck those people.

not that many other characters in the show are any better.

Daniel Martinez
Daniel Martinez

not that many other characters in the show are any better.
It's almost as if you're meant to empathize with flawed characters.

Brandon Parker
Brandon Parker

She is not real, calm your autism. She is a character that exists for our amusement.

I think she is the most interesting character in the series, i think that after autistically discussing her i got some grip on understanding her, but wouldn't tolerate her if she was real.

I would probably either beat her shit in no time if she was real.

Brody Gutierrez
Brody Gutierrez

Asuka doesn't even say that

Brayden White
Brayden White

She was a side character with the only purpose of triggering Shinji to become a catalyst for Third Impact. Her breakdown and death was necessary and planned.

Joseph Nguyen
Joseph Nguyen

Right. We are supposed to empathize because of her troubled childhood. Because she is a bitch in the present and only presents her flaws.

she is not real
I know, but if someone say "we like her because we understand her emotions", then that is flat out wrong. You can like her, don't have to, you can relate to her, don't have to, but you can also dislike her for being a bitch. That is what I was talking about.
In any case, her character is easy to understand.

Jaxson Russell
Jaxson Russell

Wasn't Asuka friends with the class rep? I think you guys are forgetting that she could be tolerable and normal when she wanted.

Henry Baker

Yes, they played vydia and talked about boys together.

Anthony Reed

She was friends with hikari
She danced with shinji skillfully
She tanked a lot of acid on her back
She went to a ramen stand because misato dont have much money and i think it was her that invited rei.
She isnt a demon like some people think. She just gets really unstable when in an extreme situation.

Leo Long
Leo Long

She invited Rei to Misato's promotion party, too, but that girl's unsociable. Asuka didn't stop trying to be friendly until like episode 20.

Nicholas Perez
