It's because the Japanese are madly in love with boring cliche's and characters that don't behave like actual people.

tsundere is what makes it boring. [at least for me]

oh, maybe they hit the guy because they're too ugly to get any attention, so they ended up punching him. [to get the guy to look at them]

the characters are either too shallow or so dense they deserve it

I'm glad people actually don't like this shit now.


years ago, nobody gave a shit. I always found it annoying (plus the guys never fight back. . .unless they're Ranma)

I think it's an attempt to make the girls look strong and stand out. It's also an attempt at humor.

Honestly I can't stand it when a girl hits a guy all the time. Sure there are guys that are asking to get hit, but there are so many guys that don't do anything wrong but get hit anyway.

"Like say for instance a guy accidentally sees a girl naked and it's not even his fault, the girl goes "kyaaaa" and smacks him... honestly makes me mad because it's not even his fault.

Or when a girl accidentally walks into a guy naked he still gets smacked...

Or when a guy says something wrong she'll get mad hit him and say "baka"
"

Okay, that first one's easy!

> guy walks in on a naked girl and sees her naked, gets slapped. BAKA

What really is happening - This girl is naked, probably enjoying that squeaky-clean feeling you get after a nice warm shower or bath when suddenly some dude opens the door and sees everything. This normally wouldn't be too bad if he immediately closes the goddamn door but instead, the dumb bastard always stands there for a few seconds and stares at her, taking it all in.

And that would piss anyone off. Oh yeah, this dumbass has it comin' now.

[Slap mode engaged]

Yeah, that second one is pretty retarded. That happens to me, I get pissed. Very legitimately pissed.

And that third one... is just totally uncalled for, depending on what he's saying. Sometimes, he deserves it and other times, not at all.


I do get that same feeling a lot with tsunderes - that "what the hell I didn't do shit to deserve that!?" kind of feeling. Pisses me off. Damn double-standard exploiting females.

Love, Elections & Chocolate Yuki slaps Chisato in ep 10 OR 11

The Pet Girl of Sakurasou Sorata slaps Mashiro Episode 13

Because Japan.

Also Tsundere's are overdone but anime/manga creators are afraid to try new things. Kind of like how in America "tough" female characters are all hard asses who don't need no man but end up falling for X protagonist anyways because "he's different" due to being like every other protagonist and now I forgot the topic.

I second the post that its just an exagerration of real life. Some real life girls do tend to smack/hit/slap us guys when they think we're being asses or just need to be kept in line. A close female friend of mine has a habit of lightly slapping my chest/arm if I say something particuarly smartass, jokingly perverted, or am just plain teasing her. It doesn't hurt noticeably and is rather cute/playful aspect of our friendship. She reads a lot of manga so perhaps this is something she picked up from that but its something that developed between us naturally. But she doesn't punch or smack me which is what tsunderes do and in real life isn't cute or playful at all. One frind of mines gf actually punches him ocassionally if hes being a big enough ass but given he has over half a foot in height and almost a hundred pounds on her nobody seems to care, even him. Personally I wouldn't put up with such treatment from anyone I know regardness of closeness. I know some people who would even mind even playful slaps from a girl, one guy I met got really upset when his gf wrote on his hand so all people are different.
