What is actually means

Tsundere is actually a term derived by fans to classify a type of anime character that is becoming more common, usually a female lead. It is the combination of two words tsuntsun and deredere.


Tsuntsun refers to being egoistic, hostile, tough. A tsuntsun would be one who always seems moody or angry and never shows any sign of hesitation or weakness. An example of a tsuntsun character is anime is Suzumiya Haruhi.


Deredere is the opposite of tsuntsun. A deredere character is often uncertain and needs a push to get going. Nerine from Shuffle! and Mikuru from Suzumiya Haruhi can be considered as deredere characters.


Now we have tsundere, the combination of both tsuntsun and deredere traits. A tsundere is a person who starts off with a tsuntsun type personality but ends up with a deredere personality. They are the serious, highly ambitious and confident type but slowly develops or shows signs of deredere, usually developing feelings for another character and dropping the tough front.
