The lovely Asuka Langley is a young lady who takes on the world on her own terms. Some may consider her arrogant, but she merely has pride in her many accomplishments.
At the age of 14, she is already a college graduate and an accomplished violinist. She is also fluent in Japanese, which is a foreign language for this German-American girl.
Asuka is the Second Child, and was picked by Seele to pilot the Eva-02, which was built in Germany. She arrives in Japan just in time for the attack of Gaghiel, the sixth angel. With Shinji riding along inside of Eva-02, they defeat the angel in a maneuver that allows Misato to ram two huge battle ships down the maw of the waterborne angel.
In compensation, she frequently is fussing at Shinji, whom she regards as her rival in being the best Eva pilot. Considering that it would never even enter Shinji's mind to have a contest on who was best...and the fact that Shinji doesn't even want to be there while Asuka is prepared to risk her life in the quest for proof that she is best...betrays the underlying insecurity that Asuka hides.
Unfortunately for Asuka, she ends up living with Shinji in Misato's apartment, and gets even more upset with him for noticing the bait that she wishes Kojhi would take instead. At one point in the relationship, when she feels rejected, she challenges Shinji to kiss her, only to have the pair of them interrupted before he can carry out the challenge. She later belittles him as if it was all a joke.
So, all of Asuka's foibles and fables make her charming and irritating at the same time, or all too human in her presentation.
If you found this to be the most annoying Asuka web page that you have ever seen, let me know. I may laugh at you about it. I guess that's a sign that Asuka's character traits are rubbing off on me.
