Just like what the title says, what is the deal with Tsundere characters? They always seem to be popular as a main love interest in many anime stories but I personally hate them. I find them annoying and do nothing but cause much pain and aggravation as a character in the story. I mean if I met a girl that was a Tsundere in real life that was interested in me, I would just call her a bitch and say she's not worth all the trouble. I mean I've seen Tsunderes do pretty bad things to the main character and I just say to myself, "(Insert main character name here), how can you take that kind of crap from her?!?!?". That's pretty much my little rant on that, but I want to know about it from other peoples perspectives. Do you like or hate Tsundere characters? Why or why not?

EDIT: I'm so glad there's a edit button on CR...

Why are tsundere characters popular in romance genres? Its simple really...

1)They are the easiest characters to create comedy with. You know, the done over to death "guy done something he shouldn't have done to a girl (or shouldn't have seen)>girl rages>girl beats the shit out of guy* routine.

2)Its cute.

3)Its also popular to have tsundere character portrayed as lolicon character too, which is even MOAR KAWAII~ you know?

4)Believe it or not, its one of Japan's biggest sexual fetish. ~Just joking

You have to remember this is Japan we're dealing with, where a good portion of Japan's male population have a hard on from pedo girls and vast majority of girls squealing non-stop about bishounen characters with anorectic bodies.

Okay maybe the "very" part for number 3 was a bit much, but in these last recent years there have been quite a few tsundere+loli girls. For example, Toradora, ZnT *cough* Louise is a bitch *cough*, Hayato no Gotoku, and so forth...

I hate them too.

They're possibly the easiest characters to use though. They have no personality whatsoever. Plus, the writer can get away with not giving them any major part, since they're so quiet in general. They only lash out whenever they're needed.

Well, not that I can blame you for this stereotype against the Japanese, but it's true to a certain extent.

But besides the obvious inclinations, it's actually a reflection of the direction that modern Japanese society is heading towards. For one thing, the Japanese come from a primarily conservative background. As of late, however, the modern Japanese society, specifically of women, have been characterized by an increased stress on individualism and independence, which reflects itself in the "tsundere" character prototype.

The "tsundere" is a mixture of both a self-confident woman and a conservative girl as is espoused by their cultural upbringing - these two factors of which are both seen as highly desirable to the modern Japanese man. On the one hand, they appreciate a liberally-charged woman who can speak her mind - but they also place emphasis on that conservative girl that meets the expectations of the man.

The dichotomy is what makes the "tsundere" character very unique. It's two extremes in one character, which is pretty much what the whole point in "tsundere" is. As a plot device, you're right in saying that it makes a great character, because there's a notable change in character development as she moves from "tsuntsun" to "deredere". Other characters won't have that great of an impact on the viewer had they not had such a contrasting range of character.

So both sociologically and technically, the "tsundere" is a very obvious choice for most Japanese. It's not "just" a fettish, per se... it's like a lifestyle.

i like tsunderes, only if they're the main character.

but if it's a side character that's a tsundere (for example a rich girl, aka "ojou-sama") that does mean things, then I really hate them. If it's a side tsundere, they're just a big bother. >_>
