Favorite Supporting Female Anime Character

(Asuka Langley Soryu)

Asuka Langley Soryu is the Second Child and the pilot of Unit 02. She is German and Japanese descent, but from America. Asuka has a rather abrasive, self absorbed, and often mean and abusive usually to Shinji.  She has a great confidence in her ability as an Eva pilot, and has managed to sync with Unit 02 better than average. She is severely insecure due to trauma from her childhood, and uses her attitude as a mask. In Rebuild of Evangelion series, her name is changed to Asuka Shikinami Langley.

Asuka shining moment for many fans is when she single handely battles armed forces and 9 mass produced EVA’s. Though she successfully in defeating them at first, Unit 02’s run’s out of power.  The Mass Produced Eva’s had infinite power (“which allow them to remain functional despite being severely damaged or mutilated”) finally allows them “to eviscerate and dismember Unit 02 using their Lance of Longinus replicas”.
