I recently finished EoE and i have a question about the end

Can someone explained to me why Asuka's the only one that returns in the end after Shinji refused instrumentality ? Or she's just the first one ?

If she's the only one .. It means that Shinji and Asuka are the new Adam and Eve ?

She's the first - we've been told that anyone can return. It's not clear where people may return, and it's also implied that there was an interval between Shinji's return and Asuka's (rust on the cross from the nail is used as the justification for that - but OTOH Shinji shows little sign of the effects of time).

Bagheera's post-EoE story Ghosts of Evangelion (discussion here) is an example of one which has people returning after an interval and then over a long period (and some not at all).

A fan, the fourth most prolific poster here, recently banned.

It's a wide-ranging examination of Asuka's and Shinji's relationship for the rest of their lives (including a child and their deaths in old age), how they processed their PTSD, and how it affected their relationships with others who returned at various times.
