Post Reply Die or Date a Yandere?
Posted 6/18/15
I absolutely couldn't or wouldn't do it if i knew they were a yandere from the beginning

I still dont get these -dere cliches. I know tsundere is like an ice queen and yandere is a stalker.

To be honest, do not like the dere cliches. They're making anime cookie cutter...

Yandere, probably not. I have a lot of friends that are girls, and I don't want a relationship to mean that they can't be my friends anymore (out of fear for their own lives and mine...).

But a Yangire I think I could manage.



For those who don't know the difference:

Yanderes are inherently psycho, willing to do anything to make sure only they have your love, including (read especially) violence. A good example of this is Lucy from Elfen Lied.

Yangires are generally dere but have a trigger that when hit, turns them full on psycho. A good example of this is Ryuuguu Rena from Higurashi no Naku Koro ni.

I would love to have a yandere girlfriend. It's so romantic that she would kill to get my love.

I'd be down for that. Might be entertaining enough.

Elfen Lied and Mirai Nikki come to mind. I could live with those lol.

Depends on what part of the scale they fall on. Wouldn't be opposed but would sleep with one eye open.

Hell yes.

Point of order, though, about Yuno Gasai:
So I think actually having her around would be mostly safe. And totally worth the risk anyway.

Although, thought about "a yandere girlfriend IRL" leads to questions along the lines of, how much is this girl supposed to be a "yandere", and how much is she supposed to have some actual real-world mental disorder? Is she going to act like an anime character or a real human being who's just terribly sick?

So, I think my real answer to that situation would be, I'd tell the yandere who's giving me this ultimatum, "yes, I'll date you, but only if you promise to attend therapy". And I'd make an effort to ensure it doesn't turn into an abusive relationship in either direction - there is, or course, the "oh shit the crazy girl might keep you locked up" side, but also when looked at with an eye more to realism, there's "oh shit, you might take advantage of the fact that this mentally ill girl is desperately obsessed with you". I probably have to have a messiah complex to even think I can walk that line, but hey, OP said the alternative was gettin' murdered.

Yangire's have no dere quality attached to their madness at all, hence no dere in the portmanteau. Dere basically means lovesmitten. Rena could be considered a Yangire(as could Keiichi), but her default isn't "dere" as her normal behavior isn't that of a girl in love. A yangire can have a dere quality, but that would mean they are in love with someone, however their madness isn't caused or amplified by love.

Although knowing whats behind the "crazy" in Higurashi I kind of view the characters with a completely different type of "yan" part to them, since they are not just personality disorders and I don't consider them really culpable for their actions. I mean we all had Keiichi's back in the first arc am I right? But that's digressing.

Higurashi Spoiler:


...

In response to the original post, I think "Date or Die" is pretty much a non-choice, or basically a very simple one. I mean it would simply come down to whether you being with them would be worse than death, nothing more. That you would have to decide on a Yandere by Yandere basis. Live or die vs a stalker = live, live or die versus someone who wants to partially cannibalize you in order to become one with you = probably death.

As for characters like Yuno, sure why not? Honestly I think people over estimate her inherent craziness. Her actions are, in my opinion, all rational decisions that ultimately make her crazy, because she is forced to make these decisions, not the other way around. Basicaly she isn't crazy, just hysterical and grief stricken, she isn't in full blown "to hell with everything" mode until the very end of the series when she realizes she's screwed no matter what she does because of something out of her control, that thing being something that Yuki won't do, so she takes the Blue and Orange morality choice.



Basically in any ordinary situation I would date her no problems, and that even includes the situation with her parents, as that isn't what makes her snap.

Since I can't honestly expect to have any idea what anyone would act like while being stuck in some chthonian nightmare game, where all the outcomes are bad, then I don't see why I would have any problems with her outside of that context. I'd be much more afraid of the people who are crazy in an believable situation where madness isn't actually forced onto them.
