But is struggling to express get their feelings across alone enough to gain the label of a 'tsundere'? If that's the case then 99% of anime females are tsunderes due to struggling to tell the person they love how they feel.

You're too hung up on the romantic angle as being the basis of the definition when it's not.

Being a tsundere is a personality archetype; it's not strictly a label for how someone deals with romantic feelings, it's how they act all the time because that's their personality. Look at how all the -dere types deal with embarrassment: yanderes blank out and kill all witnesses, kuuderes either glare you frozen or don't even realize something embarrassing happened (kuudere kind of encapsulates two distinct archetypes), tsunderes freak out and danderes drop dead.

If you repeat that experiment for various situations throughout Toradora! Taiga will consistently tick tsundere.

She's a softer tsundere but still a tsundere.


Hey, look! It's what I was trying to earlier, except said in a manner that is actually coherent!

I agree with some of what has been already said. She's a tsundere, but not an overplayed caricature of one. Her personality is integral to the rom-com storyline and not something done for side laughs, like everybody's favorite Railgun. If Toradora! had been a prototypical (NOT generic ) harem then she would have been written as a more prototypical tsundere.

Best tsundere is Maki from Love Live!

She is a tote M and is yuri, to boot.

Toradora?........

Ami was too good for this show.

Golden Time needed an Ami.

Why wasn't she in that series?

As far as I understand, tsundere was originally used for gal game characters who didn't actually like the main character starting out. There was no hiding feelings with violence and insults or anything simply because there were no feelings to hide, except for 100% pure and undiluted don't-like-you-GTFO. By progressing in that character's arc though, they gradually come out of their dislike of the main character and decide they like them instead.

Eventually, it branched out to a bunch of other archetypes. There's the tsundere that actually likes the main character, but hides it by flinging all the bile they can muster at him, there's the tsundere that acts tough in front of everyone but shows a softer side to them in front of the right people, and there's the tsundere that are generally grade A jerkfaces who occasionally say really nice things. There are other archetypes more than likely, but they usually contrast how someone is on the outside and what they're like on the inside.

'Least that's my take on it. I think there were some people a long time ago saying the first was true tsundere and everything else was just a pale imitation and needed another term, but I personally don't look at it that way.
