The first of the new Evangelion movie remakes didn't really shake things up much-- it mostly followed some of the early episodes of the series and set up the world setting and some of the main characters. We've been told to expect more to change later on though, and one of the first of those changes has already appeared: Asuka's name.


Asuka Langley Soryuu, the half-German, half-Japanese pilotess, has earned a new name: Asuka Langley Shikinami.


Now, what does this mean? It might mean that she'll have a somewhat different personality. Or it could mean that her backstory has changed (but her persona generally hasn't). Or, if the second film isn't turning out as differently as expected, it could be an attempt to just change something.


What do you think? Could you handle a substantially different Asuka? I guess we'll have to wait and see if Asuka Langley Shikinami should be an alias or an entirely new character page...

I... why?
   I can still hear Misato's voice in my head introducing her.

And I don't think her personality will be radically different, fan-outcry could be deafening in such a situation.

I think someone just wants to print more money. They know if they make anything with Asuka it going to make them some $$$money$$$. (or I guess it this case ¥¥¥money¥¥¥)

@MoonStorm
  But what does that have to do with changing her name? We knew she was in it from the trailer, how does changing her name print more money?

they better not change her character, she was one of the most endearing charcters of evangelion

 Because they change the name means they are probably make a big deal out of it. Something Asuka related is coming other wise there be no reason to change her name.

So, trading one nice boat (Sohryu) for another (Shikinami)?

For all I know ,The Milking Kings nee GAiNAX may have just made the surname change to get fans talking; they wouldn't be the first.
