A couple years ago at AFO4 (Anime Festival Orlando 4) I ran into Steve Bennet of Studio Ironcat (which was at the time going through really tough times) and I basically networked a bit and somehow managed to get myself invited out to dinner with Steve, some folks from ADV, and a bunch of voice actors--one of them being Tiffany Grant (who sounds very similar to Asuka when she talks in real life).
Now when you're trying to eat your sushi next to the voice actress who gave life to a character you admired, you normally do one of two things: 1) go hentai, rip off your human disguise, and tentacle ravage the living batcrap out of them, or 2) make nice, quiet, bashful conversation while you're inwardly thinking OMG OMG OMG I can't believe this is happening to me! Sure enough, I was a type 2. Ahem. I really was a type 2. I WAS, DAMN IT!
Anyway, all of this leads me back to the fact that I'm an Asuka fan, through and through. I love the fiery personality, her emotional baggage, her competative nature, her wit and intellect, and especially her vulnerabilities. I guess a couple of years ago I would have echoed what most of the people in this thread said about her hot, young, nubile, milky, Eurasian body--but I wont. I mean she's 15 for Christ's sake. And a cartoon!......
Okay but yeah that was my 2 cents.
Rei Ftw! Her mysteriousness is so sexy xP
Asuka comes out a little emo ><
Maybe its cause i like the quiet type
I just love Asuka. She's fricking awesome and could kick anyone's ass any day- hahaha. Her twisted past just makes her all the more appealing- especially episode 21 (?) where she "descends into madness", so to speak. Such an awesome episode. Plus she refuses to give up even when she's losing. "I'd rather die than be defeated!"

Good to see people are still talking about Evangelion.
I will admit I was very quickly a Rei fan, so much so that I forgot I was a Misato fan (I only saw bits and pieces of the series at first) until one day..."Oh yeah I liked Misato first...".
The enigma of Rei is simply too much to resist, her selfless lifestyle, her sense of duty and her complete indifference to any non-lifethreatening situation just catch me.
"If I die I can be replaced" is a concept that everyone seems to get pretty angry at. I admire it.
like some of you guys i am a Rei fan dude she is totally better than Asuka in many ways and here are some in my opinion a) she is not inconciderate of others b) she looks better than Asuka c) Rei is much more mysterious than Asuka
ASSASSINATE THE MAINSTREAM!!!
