Deadman Wonderland and Akame ga Kill I guess.

Ones I've seen are Shuffle and Monogatari Second Season; both have major plot arcs driven by the behavior of yanderes.

School Days is the classic yandere show, but I've not seen it.

Finally, the sister in Chaika Coffin Princess has some yandere-ish tendencies, although I think she probably doesn't take them quite far enough to count, and she's kind of a side character.

I'm fine with them if I can read them here on CR. If a manga is really good and not too long (so I don't need to spend too much money), I may buy physical copies, though.

There's also Overlord airing right now. Albedo wants the D (even though he's nothing but bones) and she refuses to let any other girl be Ainz's #1.

I'm not sure when the term Yandere first appeared, but if you like classic films you can check out a proto-yandere in 1968's Little Norse Prince (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Great_Adventure_of_Horus,_Prince_of_the_Sun).

I use the term proto-yandere as there is a character that fits the description of being nice and cute on first appearance but hiding a more nasty side. However, as the creators of the film weren't trying to aim for an existing definition of the character trait, the yandere style isn't quite as developed as more recent anime.
