Some of the most well-developed and interesting characters ever were tsunderes and yanderes. Plus, on a personal level, I'm just a fan of the whole "Tsundere" idea

Now that just makes it sound like you're playing a dating sim.

I'm sorry to put it that way, but it sometimes is like that.

On the flip side, you could also look at it being a good thing that some girls don't just automatically trust every guy who walks into their life. If a girl was legitimately being tsundere was like that because she had been hurt in her past or something and didn't want it to happen again, I would totally understand that. And, hopefully, only a guy with good intentions would be able to gain her trust, which would be a sort of good accomplishment (maybe not the best word choice, though).

best Tsundere ever but contributing to the discussion now i like tsundere because normal relationships have always been boring to me with the o im your princess and blah blah its more entertaining when its a challenge and the woman isn't some docile thing that goes along with your every wish i like it when the girl knows that shes the best and wont let anything stand in her way and if you want something from her that she dos not wanna do your gonna have to work for it

I dislike most Tsunderes because most aren't given any character depth. 9 out of 10 of them, for me at least, appear to be violent, insensitive, and just unpleasant to be around. They stay like this for a majority of the series. Whenever the spotlight is on them all that's shown is their negative traits. What's worse, for me, is that the rest of the cast is fully aware of her negative traits, yet continue to gush about how great she is.

I think the reason we like tsudere's (or at least the one's that have character development), is that it gives us hope. If someone who starts off a bit mean and self-centered, can begin showing selfless actions, I guess it goes to say that we all can be better too.

The problem with the tsundere idea is that it has become a staple in Japan to the point where most are not only flat and cookie-cutter, but exagerated to the point where they are not cold or disdainful at first but downright abusive. The basic concept is that they have some affection from the start but can't express it, and pride or snobbery pushes them to keep their distance. Yet now it's enough to show a girl hitting a boy and that tells the audience she's in love.

Even Hayao Miyazaki doesn't always get it right. Kiki's unexplained contempt of the boy in Kiki's Delivery Service is the only problem with that film. In Nadia and the Secret of Blue Water, Nadia keeps switching tsuntsun/deredere several times an episode. Yet these are nowhere as bad as the likes of Oreimo's Kirino. At the same time Oreimo has a tsundere done well in Kuroneko.

The only violent tsundere I can stand is the lead in Nyarko-San. To see the better sort of tsundere, try the The World God Only Knows from second season onward (almost everyone is a tsundere), or Bakemonogatari, or Toshokan Sensou.
