The second of the new Rebuild of Evangelion movies, Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance is going to earn itself a lot of hate for doing this. Unless there was a valid reason for it; I think it's a completely stupid thing to do.
In case you haven't figured out what I'm talking about. Take a look at this.
It's a piece of advertising for the new movie. So you're probably wondering where's the problem with that, right?
Well, other than confirming that the new female character will be called Mari. It also states they're changing Asuka's name from Asuka Langley Sohryu to Asuka Langley Shikinami.
If her name has been altered, what else are they going alter about her? Asuka is Asuka, and if you try to mess with that fact you are only ruining everything that makes her who she is in the series (and to the fans that either love or hate the way she presents herself).
