It was never a contest, Rei doesn't even place!

Its not easy to replicate Rei, but they try.

Its far harder to emulate Asuka, and they havnt even begun trying to untangle that amazing character.

Rei. Asuka, Misato, Ritsuko are great too, but once you figure them out, then that's it. Try to figure out Rei. Just attempt. Asuka and Misato have obvious problems they're combatting and they know what they are. Rei doesn't. She's confused, and we (and she) don't exactly know what's up in her mind. She's also terrifying at points.

Asuka or Misato, robotic stoicism doesn't really do interest me, perhaps because I am to a degree that way.

Challenge accepted.

At least as far as the 1990s anime and films are concerned Rei isn't really more complex than the others, though she is more interesting than a lot of critics have given her credit for.



Rei has since been toyed with in the alternate universe, the reboot, and tons of fan fiction, and I really think there's a good deal to explore in Rei Ayanami. But is her struggle more complex than the others'? Not really.
