Base-Breaking Character: Asuka. Holy crap. Some readers like her especially with the Break the Haughty of later chapters, others find her abrasive and confrontational. Some find the treatment she gets a bit much (factoring in her already broken self-esteem and history), others find in not enough and want her to be taken down a few pegs. It's inherited from the main series but notable in that the other base breakers (Shinji and Rei) aren't nearly as controversial in this fic.
