Hmm probably Dandere, especially when it comes to romance. Always like the thought of someone liking you first but being too shy to admit it. Not a fan of tsunderes in general unless its done well, not usually into characters who are mean. Kuudere can be good and Yandere it really depends

I still find tsunderes in general to be rather annoying, even ones like Taiga from Toradora, or Nanami from Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo. I usually find that tsunderes are excessively violent and rude, and they assume that everyone looks at them with perverted notions. It is mildly entertaining at first, but it gets old rather quick.

But I agree that when they're done right, they can be one of the best deres. Prime example is Yozora from Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai. She's honestly one of my favorite characters ever.

She may sound a bit yandere here, but that's just her everyday character honestly.

Tsunderes, Kuuderes, and Danderes.
Yanderes is pretty much a different story for me.

Why would you enjoy the proliferation of terrible overused character archetypes?

I don't have a favorite but tsundere is probably the one that annoys the shit out of me. Tsundere.....a bitch who is excused for being a bitch because she has feelings, then goes beating every guy she sees.

I've always thought/suspected that all "deres" except yandere and tsundere were wapanese terms made up by western fans, and therefore cringe whenever I see them. And by this point that's a trained response that will stick even if it turns out Japanese fans actually use and came up with the terms. Also, dandere always makes me think of this show I watched when I was a kid (oh my god I only just found that video and I haven't seen it since I was on tv and it's so terrible but the sheer nostalgia oh my god). But I digress.

I'd ask if we get to choose with more specificity than the broad archetype, but actually either way the choice is hard, it just changes whether it's a "both are good" difficult choice or a difficult "both are terrible" choice. Oh, also, is this to imagine dating, or just characters on the screen? Lots of people seem to be choosing the former because they're worried about their yanderes murdering them.

If the girl is just on the screen, and it's the right variation on the archetype: Tsundere. The shy kind that's just really embarrassed about how blatantly they're in love with another character, like Natsume in Hidamari Sketch, is the cutest thing.

If the girl is just on the screen, and it's the archetype in general: Yandere. Most tsunderes are just terrible - I mean, besides the "she's just a complete bitch" complaint, even if the character isn't a bad person, the bad kind of tsundere is anime telling you "if a girl does not consent, and indeed violently expresses this non-consent, that means she wants the d!" Also you have the fact that having a probable serial killer in your main cast makes everything more interesting.

If we're talking about a girl to date, then either way it's tsundere, not because of anything good about tsunderes but because even the "good kind" of yandere (the kind that doesn't murder you) would still be terrifying in real life, and the fact that yandere girlfriends murder your enemies is only good when you have enemies who need murdering so not in real life where there are cops who will arrest you.
