You'll find a fair number of fans of her character around here.

Well, I meant her actual character rather than her likeness or something people make up in their heads so they can fap to her with a clear conscience.

that's harsh :hahaha:


yeah, there are plenty of Asuka fans on this board - I'm pretty sure they overshadow Rei fans in numbers.

I guess I count as Asuka fan too, even if Misato is nowadays my favourite she's still easily on the second place and she was #1 for years...

It's understandable; after all, she's a well-drawn character, something even her detractors (grudgingly) admit. Heck even Reichu, clearly not a fan, admits that her arc was effective. That speaks well of both Reichu and Asuka IMO. :lol:

I guess my favorite is Kaji, since he's the only seminal character in the series who doesn't whine all the time.

Just kidding; my favorite one is Shinji. ^_^

WIth "well-drawn character" I guess you mean well-depicted? I initially thought you were talking about how she looks like, honestly :lol:

Male: Shinji
-Take away the abandonment and daddy issues and you get me. Er, well, you would have... watching Shinji helped me get through my issues. It's an on-going struggle and I still have a ways to go, but I can proudly say I have grown from my experiences.

Female: Mari
-I realize that she's new, but Mari stands out to me above the other females in the cast. Mari seems to be the type of person that I want to be; strong, determined, and confident despite being awkward (she sniffs Shinji... 0.o). It also seems that she's just fine being herself.

Not a long or indepth answer but...

Asuka without a doubt. Before watching Eva I could never fathom the lengths people go to with characters, but damn if I had the disposable income I'd consider buying an Asuka dakimakura, or maybe a figurine.

Edit: In case it needed to be said, not an 18+ one, or anything fanservicey.

They always beef up fanservice for figures (see the recent Mugi maid figure which is more strongly sexualized than she ever is drawn in series...my own Ranka figures all definetly have some degree of pervyness in them ^^' ) and...non-fanservicey dakimakura? What?

<.< A while back I did some googling (note, I say googling, not research, because it was like 5 minutes max) and I found this website

http://www.dakimakurapillow.com/faq/#7

Honestly, I don't think finding one would be hard, I think the hard part would be assuring quality and what not, because the metrics I'd be working with would be Greek to me, not to mention whether a site is trust worthy or not. Regardless, that's still way to much money for me to splurge on a pillow. Give it a few years though, eventually I'll hit that point no doubt, seems the natural progression for people like me.

Favorite character: Asuka with Shinji being a close second



I'm more of a shy, introverted guy myself and I empathised more with the likes of Rei and Shinji if anything - so I do find it quite odd sometimes that Asuka is my favourite out of the entire cast. I usually don't associate and get along with those type of people IRL (I'm quite socially inept and incompetent, tbh) and I do find them quite exasperating to socialise with sometimes.

But I really did feel sorry for the girl (especially in episode 22) in regards to her discord with her mother at a young age and I really did pity the girl during her breakdown/downfall.

Anyway, I thought the entire cast was quite brilliant and the characters were nothing short of spectacular and I love them all for different reasons but if I had to choose a favorite it would be the flamboyant Asuka.

Well now I wouldn't say that...

My favorite is still Misato if anyone's curious. That women can carry a 7 minute cartoon all by herself if someone is willing to do it; can't say the same for the others.

I'm rewatching parts of the "Ascent" arc, and I'd forgotten just how brilliantly, sarcastically funny Asuka was. Through episodes 8 - 13, (and until she started to snap), Asuka was a fresh charge of energy into the show, and (particularly in episode 8), she really brought out Shinji's inner willpower/snark. If only this show wasn't about the slow corrosion brought on by *lack* of communication, those two really could've made an amazing team...

Favorite Asuka [s]whine[/s] line thus far (from the detox scene in Ep. 13): "Alllll right, I'm here, just the way you wanted - butt-naked and run through the wash cycle seventeen times!"

I know what you mean. They would've made a great buddy cop duo in those episodes.

*Asuka jumps a car off a ramp or something equally reckless*
*Shinji groans/mutters a complaint/nearly passes out*

Then Misato chews them out back at the precinct.

Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.
