Here is a delightful Asuka cosplay from Neon Genesis Evangelion. Asuka here is in her goth/lolita costume. If you haven’t seen the collaboration of Rei and Asuka, be sure to check it out in the Rei cosplay super compilation. Enjoy and be sure to click through to see all 15 pictures.
Asuka is only one quarter Japanese, which accounts for her Japanese name but European appearance. Asuka is a native of Germany, having been raised there, though her nationality is technically American. Asuka’s native language is German, and in both the series and the manga she tends to curse in German. She is a child prodigy and has earned a university degree in an unspecified field as a teenager; she also speaks fluent Japanese, but has trouble reading and writing kanji. She is characterized by her fiery red hair and equally fiery temper. Asuka is very proud of being an Eva pilot, and near-constantly wears her A10 nerve clips in her hair, because she wants everyone around her to know that she is a pilot.
