Well, considering how she reacted to all the love letters she got when she transferred in my odds of success are pretty low. So I'd have to play it differently than all those other guys. Luckily I have the advantage of already knowing a lot about her.
First thing I'd do is get close to Shinji. Since they live together and spend a lot of time together this is a sure-fire way to get close to her without making it overtly obvious that I'm interested in her. From there I try and play it cool. Considering I've already played the high school game and know the ropes, plus I'm more mature than Shinji's friends, this shouldn't be too hard. Try to imitate Kaji, you know?
From there I'm not sure. The way I see it I have two options:
1. Wait for a chance, likely while visiting Shinji at the apartment, to be alone with Asuka. When the chance comes I try and help her with Eva piloting. I can either do this subtly, by encouraging her to open her mind to the Eva so she can raise her synch ratio and hope that she reacts better to the information coming from me than she did to Rei telling her, or I can go full on mysterious mode and give her intel on the next angel(s) before it arrives, which she can then use to her advantage.
2. Alternatively I can forgo that and try and catch her when she falls. This'll be hard. I'll not only need to time my intervention at the right time, after she starts tumbling down but before she tumbles too far, but I'll also have to intervene in a way that's actually successful. If I screw it up it could backfire and she could run away from me, figuratively (or literally I suppose).
It's easy to say all that, though. It'd be much harder in practice.
