Damn it, I'm gone for a week and this thread goes kablooey! Well, must comment:

@Light: Asuka is moe. This is a matter of fact, not opinion. To see why go here and be enlightened. Yes, Xard schools the fuck out of me there, but I don't mind linking to it because I finally made him get off his ass and do something useful. :lol:

Also, Asuka is not pure. That is, in fact, the point of the character, and the very thing that makes her hot. Anime redheads are a dime a dozen, but Asuka's issues -- those things that leave her sullied, beaten and broken, even as she's chanting "I'll kill you!" with her final breath -- give her a degree of substance her successors can't hope to match. When you whitewash those issues and reduce her to a wallpaper suitable for fapping you make her boring.

Asuka is real. She's the consequences of every stupid decision you ever made, and every time you whip that picture out (you know the one I'm talking about) she's looking at you going "yeah, thought so." Go ahead and put her on a pedestal, I dare you -- your love letter will join all the others in the dirt, ground beneath her heel. That's Asuka.

@Allemann: Dude, Asuka is the poster child for damaged. Psychological trauma? That's damage. Injuries? Damage. Pathological focus on her pride? Damage.

Does that make her damaged goods? Well, yeah. For a lot of people it does. That's why Light doesn't like acknowledging the seamy underbelly of her character -- it's so much easier to deal with a sanitized virtual waifu than an actual character with issues and shit. But one person's damaged goods is another person's reality check, and IMO if you keep working with her after all is said and done you wind up with a fierce, competent, thoroughly memorable character. Give me that over "pure" any day.

@Symbv: Asuka doesn't have a non-broken bird mode. Even before Kyoko's contact experiment her father was messing the family up something fierce, and after, well...

Then we get the descent arc and she goes from broken to puréed.

@Tines: Sometimes I wish you were more of a bulldog when people are spouting stupid shit in your general direction (he says, knowing full well said canine would bite him on the ass more often than not were it so). Yeah yeah, topic etc, but Asuka isn't hot for pretty pictures alone -- she's hot because of who she is and you know it.

(What's that? You actually have a life and have better things to do that correct stupid shit on teh interwebz? You actually paid attention to what Anno was saying, lo those many years ago?

...

Fine, be that way. Make the rest of us look bad. See if I care. :biii:


Edit: Also, your insistence that an Asuka/Toji pairing makes any lick of sense based on a cut scene of an AU where Shinji and Eva did not exist (and yet Asuka, who now looks fully Japanese, still winds up in Tokyo for some reason) continues to be charming as all hell. I mean, it couldn't be less relevant if it tried! :lol:

@SSD: I've always really liked those proposal pics of Asuka. Ironically, she looks more like a classic redhead in those than she does in the series, even though she has brown hair! :chinscratch:

@Trajan: True, not all redheads have freckles, but most are either freckled or pale IIRC. Asuka's neither. But then, as I've noted before she's not really a redhead, either; given the way her hair color changes throughout the series her hair's probably better described as auburn (which is paired with a much wider variety of skin tones).

(Yes, I know that not all redheads have really red hair, and that some have hair that looks brown or blonde more often than it looks red (as you can see in the wikipedia entry on the subject), but those sorts typically look more like Hikari or Proposal Asuka than what we actually got in the show.)

(And yes, I know none of you give a shit, but I just wanted to vent, so deal. :tongue: )


@Reichu: So where's that art? You know we're all waiting very patiently to see how you use the fury of Yui-sama to sodomize Light's fantasies of waifu Asuka.

(though it'd be extra special awesome if you used Asuka to do same!)

@Juaxoo: Dude. Seriously, that sort of shit really isn't needed around here. Clean it up or TIT4C.

@Begheera: Let's not start the hair color debate again...

And Asuka looks about nine in that last picture you posted, those pants don't look like they fit very well. The pirate one made me lol though.

I'm not Light. I was ragging on him for half my post!

And those pants are business casual, IMO. To me that pic's Asuka as a business professional of some sort, though what she'd be doing is beyond me. Pretty much anything she wants I suppose.

I know what business casual pants are, it still doesn't change that the fact that they make Asuka like even younger than she already is. It's like she's raided Kaji's or Shinji's wardrobe and is wearing their pants for the sheer hell of it.

EDIT: That not there's anything wrong with that.

Dunno 'bout that; they're a little loose for business attire, but the length is right. They'd be a lot bigger if they were Kaji's (and I don't think Shinji even has a pair of pants like that). It is a rather loose-fitting ensemble overall. But, you gotta take what you can get!

I don't think it's so much that her pants look too big than her head looks too big.

This.

It looks even worse when juxtaposed with the four pictures to the right which shows a more normal proportion which produces a sort of quasi age gap.

Left.

And a couple of those are big-headed, too.

We are on topic! We're discussing hot Asuka pics!

If you really want to you can talk about her rocking out or something. Still have no idea what's going on with that one.

Finally I dug out the UCC cans of coffee and realized that I bought them back in 1998 !!!

The set has five of them but being what I am I only bought the ones with female characters (the other two were Shinji and Kaworu)

That's really nice illustration of Asuka !!!
So UCC is still the sponsor of Eva in Rebuild... Interesting...
It would not be surprising if there were also Eva-themed UCC canned coffee for Rebuild, but since I was not paying attention at that time I did not know if such thing existed...

I like how Misato seems to have mistaken her coffee can for a walkie-talkie, and Rei is staring intently at hers as though trying to destroy it with her mind.

I will beat you, UCC Original Coffee. You will never forget the day that you crossed Rei Ayanami.

They did have canned coffee bundled with a Kotobukiya figure for Rebuild.
