Asuka appears in this film, with a change to her name: it goes from Soryu to Shikinami (in Japanese means "Spreading Waves"). In this tetralogy, and it was said after the premiere of the film, the character of Asuka experiences significant changes in personality. In this film, she has no aversion to dolls. In fact she has a glove puppet that talks from time to time, using it to wish each other luck. She says to Shinji that is a reminder of his mother. She is now referred to as holding the rank of captain. She is also no longer infatuated with Kaji, choosing to ignore an invitation to go on a trip with him, until Misato forced her to go. In addition, she tested unit-3 instead of Touji, but she manages to survive the Bardiel incident, as she is seen with an eye patch in the preview image sequence at the very end of this movie.

First let me state that I was not a fan of the Neo Genisis Evangelion series. I found the main character's constant self pitying weak and annoying. Hence I couldn't connect with the character which of course affected the story and the philosophy behind the story. Out of boredom I decided to watch the rebuilds 1.0 and 2.0 (this a review for both). The rebuilds basically takes story archs from the series to make into a new movie with some new graphics, new characters and new story arch. I found the new graphics and the new story arch very interesting as its faster pace and of course with new graphics. It also left out a lot of Shinji's self pitying patheticness which allowed me to actually connect with the story instead of trying not to throw up with disgust. The battle scenes are superb. I cant wait for rebuild 3.0 and 4.0
