The Shrine of
Sohryu Asuka Langley:
The Second Goddess of Evangelion
*Sigh*..."Why does Rei get all the attention?"
That's just what I was thinking. Not to disparage Rei Ayanami herself, the First Goddess of
Evangelion, but I thought that it was time for Asuka to get her own little image archive
or shrine (call it what you like) just like Rei, who seems to have a cult following.
Or something like that. I mean, if you would think about setting up a shrine or page dedicated
to an Evangelion character, the first one to come to mind would be Rei. Which is perfectly
natural. Gainax has created a beautiful, interesting, and enigmatic character whom fans of
Evangelion have become fascinated with (myself included). I have no problem with anyone who has
set up (or is planning to set up) a page dedicated to Rei. All power to them. But I have yet to
find many pages dedicated to Asuka (or maybe I haven't looked hard enough).
In any case, I got a little tired of Rei grabbing all the attention, so I decided to give Asuka her
due. She is after all, the Second Child, pilot of Eva-02, and a key character in the series (even if she has to play
second fiddle to Rei), and is a very interesting and fun character. She's also a necessary counter
to Rei's VERY reserved personality (and Shinji's too). Without her I believe the series would be far more
serious and there wouldn't be as many antics (few as they are) that would lighten the mood of an
already serious story.
It is with this in mind that this page is dedicated to Sohryu Asuka Langley: The Second Goddess
This shrine has been patronized times by members of the Asuka faithful
since October 5, 1997.
