Having both names in the info box really doesn't work, IMO. It's better just to keep "Shikinami" in the Rebuild section. --Reichu 00:09, 7 May 2009 (PDT)

Post-movie, we shall see if Captain Sheekynaamy (NAW-kun's subtle influence is at work here!) deserves her own little infobox in the Rebuild section.--UrsusArctos 07:26, 7 May 2009 (PDT)


Lessee that baka list, Szmit... Make sure you didn't miss any. ^_^ --Reichu 10:49, 25 August 2007 (EDT)

Stupidly, I only did a tally and didn't mark where and when. I sincerely doubt there are anymore though. The "anta bakas" in #22 are counted individually because of the VAs, but the ones in #20 (as the psyche's being looped) counted as one since it was the same, and they were going to speed up too much to be comprehensable (there may be 5 in total though). Writing and re-checking it now as I write:
1 baka in EoE, 1 in 22, 1 in 19, 2 in 18, 1 in 14, 2 in 10, 1 in 8, =9
1 baka-shinji in EoE, 2 in 25/26, 4 in 22, 2 in 20 =9
2 anta bakas in 25/26, 5 in 22, 1 in 15, 2 in 12, 3 in 11, 1 in 9, 1 in 8 = 15
...30 minutes later: That's all of it.--Szmitten 12:55, 26 August 2007 (EDT)
A Baka-meter? That's like, the greatest thing EVAR. ^_^ But actually, weren't there 2 in EOE (not including a "Baka-Shinji" in 25'?) because of her "You don't understand, baka! *kick*" and a little later her "Baaka! I know you used me as a Side Dish?"?? .....Hmm. Maybe I should be worried that I know such lines so well. ^^; --Sailor Star Dust 15:53, 26 August 2007 (EDT)
Fixed Number of times Baka is said to read 10 times, since that's how many it was. 2 times in 26' afterall (Kiss becomes a kick and Asuka calling on what Shinji did at the start of Air, respectively) and once in 25' as a "Baka-Shinji". --Sailor Star Dust 15:37, 27 August 2007 (EDT)
Aaah. Whoops. I was probably too busy looking for scenes with Asuka in it to realise that she was still active somewhat in Shinjis mind in 26' (apart from the kitchen scene). --Szmitten 17:11, 27 August 2007 (EDT)


Asuka's Roman Bath or lack thereof? Is this lil' scene from 24(') as well as Shinji's attempt in 25' something that IS fact, or should such things be best left up to the Theory and Analysis section? I ask because it--to me--seems pretty obvious at that point in the series Asuka (as well as Shinji) would try to kill themselves, but I know some fans think that despite the blood/rust looking more like blood as each version progresses (OA version to DC to Renewal) and the continuity error(?) of her slit wrist switching sides. Thanks. --Sailor Star Dust 23:21, 23 August 2007 (EDT)

Roman Bath... You can mention her decrepit state in that bathtub, at least, but any more than that should be exiled to T&A. --Reichu 03:10, 24 August 2007 (EDT)
Same thing for Shinji and his "wet head" in 25' then? --Sailor Star Dust 14:21, 24 August 2007 (EDT)


Um, Asuka's nationality is what? I could have sworn that something in the series states she's 1/4 Japanese and 3/4 German, so does some other SAUCE state otherwise? Also, has it been decided her age was 13 or 14? Thanks!--Sailor Star Dust 21:17, 16 August 2007 (EDT)

The "quarter Japanese, quarter German, American nationality/citizen" thing is in plenty of sources. (Just flipped through some on my shelf.) I always thought the latter part was weird, since AFAIK they don't give you anything in the show besides a European-style surname, "Langley", which was taken from the name of an American ship -- ergo she got it from an American father named Langley, and what's this "citizen/nationality" crap all about. --Reichu 21:37, 16 August 2007 (EDT)
What were the other 2 quarters?--V 18:11, 4 November 2007 (PST)
She "technically" holds American citizenship because her father was a US citizen, but it's doubtful she's ever even set foot in the USA. It's also doubtful Asuka even identifies with the USA; she seems to have spent her whole life in Germany. Really, I think it's that she holds "dual citizenship" (I know people that have dual citizenship). It's just a bit of trivia and not really important. --V 11:38, 17 August 2007 (EDT)

Just for the record, what were the sources you "flipped through on your shelf" about Asuka's nationality? "Eva Chronicle" or something else is a good answer, I just want a name to associate with the source in my mind. Again this raises the question: if she's 1/4 Japanese and 1/4 German (as opposed to 3/4) what are the other 2 quarters? And spot-check me on this: Papa Langley has American citizenship; Kyoko is half-Japanese (hence her Japanese name). Do they clearly state which of her parents were half-German? (what the heck was the other 2 quarters?) I mean either way Asuka considers herself "German". Question: oftentimes it is difficult to determine what animated characters look like in real life: is Asuka supposed to look inter-racial, or is she supposed to look entirely Caucasian and you wouldn't know she was part Japanese if not for her name? (Consequently I view the whole thing as them cheating to get Asuka to have a common Japanese name as opposed to a totally German character....then again, there are those Hollywood hacks that theorize "in a live-action Eva movie we could cast a Caucasian as Shinji and cheat by saying he's the door swings both ways....) --V 06:03, 18 December 2007 (PST)


Let's drop-kick those diagnoses. See Shinji's discussion page for more details... --Reichu 11:40, 25 August 2007 (EDT)

More topics

These character notes aren't all I've got planned. But help me out here: I remember reading something about Asuka's monkey doll becoming a sort of "signature" image related to Yuko Miyamura, but my google-fu turns up nothing. Is it just a weird memory of mine, or is it true?Incisivis 21:18, 11 September 2007 (EDT)

Unfortunately, I've never heard of that, so I really can't say. :( I just wanted to mention you're doing bang-up job on the character profile pages, keep up the great work! ^_^ --Sailor Star Dust 17:23, 17 September 2007 (EDT)


I made a stab at starting a cleanup of this page, beginning by tackling the "notesdump" problem. --thewayneiac 11:13 EDT. May 29, 2009.

College Degree

I noticed that information about Asuka's degree was changed to read "Asuka claims" she received a degree. Isn't the case with Eva that unless something the character says/does is blatantly contradicted (by something or someone else) in-show, that we should take their words at face-value? Also, I thought some official character information mentions her degree, unless I'm thinking of the issue with her nationality. --Sailor Star Dust 14:10, 18 June 2011 (UTC)

I agree. There is nothing in-show or in the supplemental material to suggest this is a false claim. The change should be recinded. --thewayneiac 12:01 PM EDT. June 19, 2011.
