Not sure if Cosmolin is going to be uploading the set but HNGH I'm so happy with how this shoot turned out, I at least wanted to upload this one. JUST THIS ONE. .___.

Anyway, I already did an homage last year ([link]) to the scene where Asuka faces herself in the bathroom mirror (from episode 22 I think) but his is more of a character piece instead of trying to replicate a scene. I love the irony of Asuka telling Shinji "You're all you have, but you don't even love yourself" because thats exactly what Asuka is all about. All of her relationships are intensely superficial and at the end of the day, all she has is her insecure self.

I must confess that when I was originally making my way through Evangelion two episodes at a time (because that's the rate at which the VHS tapes were released in the US, which should date my EVA fandom), I really disliked Asuka through roughly the first half of the series.

Toward the end, however, as the series bombarded me with one profound personal revelation after another...I suddenly arrived at a very uncomfortable realization: out of all the characters, I understood Asuka the most completely.

Since that moment, she has been my favorite anime character of all time.

The phrase "know thyself" applies to many people, including Asuka Langley.

You make some good points in your comments about Asuka- she's a lot more like Shinji then she's willing to admit. Nice idea for a picture!
