SPOILER: Show

Above picture: from episode 15 5:41. So Shinji was looking at Rei,but who was watching him?
SPOILER: Show
ImageImage

Above pictures: from episode 15 18:45. We can see after the kiss was ended by Shijji, Asuka’s arm was still frozen in the air. Then she rushed into bathroom. Notice the shadow in her face. She hid her true feelings.
SPOILER: Show
Image

Above picture: from episode 16 7:42. Before Misato’s order, Asuka has moved to Shinji.
SPOILER: Show
ImageImageImageImageImage

Above pictures: from episode 16. When Misato gave the order to retreat, we can see Asuka was going to reject the order, but interrupted by Rei. Rei said ”Unit 01 and Ikari are still here”. It’s interesting that Rei was not following the order. It’s more interesting to notice Asuka’s reaction in her face. Now you may understand why Asuka just said “What? Is my bad-mouthing of Shinji that much of a problem for you?!”in the last picture.
SPOILER: Show
Image

Above picture: from episode 16 20:43. Some people think Asuka is jealous of Misato’s fondness to Shinji. I can’t deny that but still, you can see after the battle, Asuka rushed off to check Shinji’s status right after Misato.
SPOILER: Show
Image

Above pitcture: from episode 18 6:43. When Asuka was complaining Shinji, her foot was waggling lively. Body language can’t lie.
SPOILER: Show
Image

Above picture: from episode 22. We know at this time, Asuka found Shinji and Rei were chatting and said:” He was melted into his Eva for a whole month until just the other day. What’s with him? He’s totally back to his usual thing again.” I don’t think Asuka was jealous of Shinji’s quick recovery. I mean, come on, they live in the same house, study in the same classroom, and she can only find his recovery until seeing him with Rei after some days? That’s a little odd for me. I think here reveals Asuka’s concern about Shinji during the last month, and jealous of Shinji and Rei’s relationship. And of course, being exceeded by Shinji.
SPOILER: Show
Image

Above picture: from episode 22 20:59. It’s a surprise for us that Shinji appears in Asuka ‘s mind with this positive look at first. How many times we can find Shinji is that happy during the whole series, especially in front of Asuka? Maybe this is how you view a boy you like in your mind, I guess.

In conclusion, this is how a girl student in love looks like. I don’t care whether is “ love ”or not. At least for me, knowing that someone values me so much in her mind is enough.

Yup, there's lots of subtle stuff like this in Eva!
Honestly never payed attention to the episode 18 thing.
Shinji: "Sooner or later I'll be betrayed... And they'll leave me. Still... I want to meet them again, because I believe my feelings at that time were real."
Ryuko: "I'm gonna knock ya on your asses!"
-Asuka: THINK IN GERMAN!!! -Shinji: Öh... Baumkuchen...

Nice analysis here.

As much as Asuka hides her feelings for Shinji, to not appear weak in front of others, the more she doubts herself what Shinji means to her, when they both are hindered by their fears and therefore never got to know the essentials of love and living, thanks to their parents.

And it only serves for selfish men and women who dared to be above Gods and Angels.

To make them initiate 3I and live for the rest of their days as the last remaining humans, to never get to know about humanity existing again in aeons from evolving out of the primordial state, is the ultimate sacrifice to save what's left in the face of the universe.

That is the best detailed reasoning behind the argument that Asuka loves Shinji, or at the very least cared deeply for him. I never noticed that Asuka saw Shinji happy in her mind, and you are right to point out that he was not always a happy camper, and I don't ever recall him smiling around Asuka, save for one or two times. For her to think of that memory above all others about Shinji considering how she outwardly treats him, she must love him.

Late to the party, but yeah, these are great details. Asuka would never admit it, but she's very concerned for Shinji.
