Creating your own Asuka Langley Soryu Costume from the classic Anime show Neon Genesis Evangelion will be iconic and a great option for a group cosplay!
Asuka is introduced as a German Eva pilot of Unit Two and by far the loudest addition to NERV’s pilot team. She is quickly drawn to Shinji, but not in the way most anime shows establish relationships with a male main character. Endearingly referring to him as “idiot Shinji” she is an ultra-competitive, scholastically brilliant and in-your-face outgoing part of the young cast in the Neon Genesis Evangelion original show. Wanting to grow up as quickly as possible she both asserts her femininity and her capabilities as a pilot whenever given the opportunity. One of the most beloved characters, she surpassed the others in her drive to not only be the best, but to win what is left humanity back from the war with the angels makes her a whirlwind force piloting her signature red mech and matching red plugsuit.
