If Maya was a real possibility, I'd give her the nod. Failing that, flashback college Yui.

That's real interest, however. If it's just raw sex appeal for a no-fuss no commitment bit of fun we're talking about them Misato by a landslide.

Man... the next time someone comes to a job interview dressed up in a suit, I'm going to deny them the job right away because they're dishonest. I didn't complain about the suit comment, not directly anyway. It isn't a lie to behave in a manner consistent with expectations of a spec...

Asuka may be intelligent, and believe that makes her mature; but she lacks both maturity and the wisdom that come with it -- in D&D terms, the classic INT18, WIS8 magic user type. I assumed that regardless of the question at hand, honestly. ^_^ in her one detached command, Lance Corporal Sohryu...

@ SSD: The mullet-headed time traveler is a meme mostly supported by YTMND. The link I offered was to the original site, but since there have been all manner of additions to his 'legend': pics of him messing with history, other people joining the time war with similar newspaper ads, a quest ...

In the end, it will be up to you to decide whether you believe Asuka or not... and that will reflect volumes on how you perceive the character. I don't think you are going to find any other 'direct' evidence one way or another however. It certainly looks that way. I came here hoping som...

Gendo stuck the soul back in the embryo after Kaworu went squish. I assume that as well, but he certainly didn't take over Gendo when that happened. Had he fused with the embryo he may have just ended up trapped or in some combined adam/gendo hybrid form... teh uberpimp?! Why did he think that ...

That's certainly an impressive wall of text! First, everyone acts differently around people they like. I disagree. If you act differently than you expect to generally continue to act around a person in a romantic or business sense then you are indeed being dishonest. A white lie is still a lie. ...

The only direct evidence that Asuka did attend college is her statement to Shinji in Episode 10. As you yourself have stated, there is no direct evidence to the contrary. I don't speak Japanese nor do I have access to the platinum subs, so I was rather hoping that there might be some evidence t...

Is it problematic if my first reading of the title was that it was discussing a 24 FOOT plot hole? :D Okay, my way of seeing things: Scene at the lake was two scenes at once... though whether both are occuring at real time or one is a flashback is debatable. I'm suprised nobody has mentioned ...

I think it has been pointed out that she is intelligent enough to be capable and there is no evidence to contradict her statement. It has not been proven that she is of an extrordinary intelligence, nor that she is capable of this feat. I've conceeeded that I think she's above average, but ...

Well, Asuka's never above bragging about her accomplishments, but I don't think she'd lie and say she had done something that she hadn't. Asuka strikes me as the kind of person who wants to HAVE accomplishments; she measures herself by what she's done, not by what other people t...

I meant my retraction to cover that. That quote is specifically about reading and mentions intelligence, no?

Besides, as you point out it likely wasn't a real immersion experience with regards to the written form anyway, so the point is moot even if I don't drop it.

Fair enough with regards to my comments on reading kanji/German. I retract them and any implications on relative character intelligence connected to them.

The other comments in the post stand, however.

I haven't really looked at the manga in more detail than just a quick read. Not important anyway... just trying to stir up a little trouble/humor where I can.

Not genetically engineered, just selective genetic recombination to produce an elite child. Her mom used "high caliber" sperm from some unnamed male scientist. Oh boy... is possible that manga Shinji's most common romantic entanglements are both incestuous on different sides of the fa...

I'm not questioning if it's possible for someone to have a degree by her age, I'm just questioning if it's believable for Asuka. So far, I'm not buying it. If she really had such a degree I think it would tend to lessen her need for the "I'm an adult" stuff, not fee...

I would kinda expect the lack of a concept of self to imagine oneself with would make it a hell of a lot harder for plants and such to come back, not easier.

Yes, all the lower-tier stuff agrees. I know that. What I'm asking is if this information is based on anything more substantial than this one questionable, throw-away line of dialog. Seriously, is there even one piece of evidence anywhere else in the series or movie that corroborates this at all...
