My favorite is Misato followed by Asuka.

Something about the dichotomy of being a great combatant leader and tactical operations chief versues her everyday life of a woman who is struggling to keep it all together while falling apart.

Misato isn't a great tactica or leader by any means. It's just that Adam's Children literally don't have metaphysical brains so Nerv can get away with pretty much anything.

Ramiel, Israfel, and Sahaquiel were all defeated because of Misato's planning. I have to disagree here.

Her plans to defeat Sahaquiel and Ramiel however, reaches a whole level of crazy, especially In the former. If it had failed, Tokyo-3 would've been demolished like it was after Armisael's defeat (She openly admitted it!).

And in the end, that's the strength of Misato's character. The ability to push through solution after solution even when getting knocked down.

Asuka.

She's the fiery redhead tsundere in anime, is a prime badass adorable, pilots one of the coolest-looking Evas, and has a very cool and cute design and voice. I also absolutely love the dynamic between her and Shinji. Even if she loses her badass throughout the series, there's a very good reason for it that only makes her more sympathetic as a character, and her role in EoE is fantastic - especially since
SPOILER: Show
you know she survives in the end, and she's just starting to get warmer with Shinji while still being her tsun-self

^ The poster showing Shinji and Asuka looking at Rei's head to me shows that they're going to rebuild their lives back together. ^_^

It'll sound weird, but for some reason i find fuyutsuki a very interesting character, he's always calm and besides that smile when Shinji and Asuka defeated israfael was just funny as hell, and well other character would be Kaji, because watermelons!

Fuyutski really is an underrated character; he sure as hell was one of the more down-to-earth, that's for sure. Sad that he kept working for Gendo: a man he hated just so he could see Yui again.

^ Yeah, but even if it was just and "illusion" he got to the see yui again on EoE, and i think that that's enough for him to be happy really, and basically for anyone else just to see the one they love even if it is just for a few seconds.

Gendo Ikari because he is such a composed controllable version of Shinji and him doing so much for love makes me pity him.He also looks cool and does a cool pose

Female wise its gotta be Misato because she is a Colonel but at the same time she has so many flaws and seems the most realistic adult (in my opinion) in the show.

I personally identify with Asuka. I never really thought I would actually get to know a character who would actually give me a hard slap on the face. I think that should be self-explanatory why, though.

Probably Shinji himself, followed by Rei and Hikari.

1. Asuka Langley Soryu: Because I love the name for some reason, I love the dubbed VA (bite me), love her character backstory and progression. I found her to be the most relatable to myself.
2. Shinji Ikari: Also pretty relatable to myself. He also pilots the best Eva.
3. Asuka Langley Soryu: Best girl.
4. Misato Katsuragi: Her roommate is a penguin, also picks fights with Angels.
5. Ryoji Kaji: Suave womanizer, also a triple agent. What's not to love?
6. Pen-Pen: C'mon, that's easy.
7: Use your imagination, it's pretty even from hereon.

i may have posted in this thread back when i made this account a few years ago, and forgotten - its also possible that rewatching it my favorite has shifted because its hard for me to pick a favorite anyway - but rewatching the series over the past week, i think i have to say Asuka. i was discussing rewatching the series with my mom and we started talking about Asuka and her backstory and i began blubbering like a baby, and it was before i even got to the episodes with her mindrape scene and breakdown in general (i watched them today and AGAIN i cried)
i love every character for one reason or several but Asuka's part in the story and her overall development and back story; all of it is gut wrenching to me.
