These popular archetypes form the cornerstones of character personalities in recent anime and manga. The Mahou Tofu crew wants to know which of these “-dere” personalities you fall head over heels for. Keep in mind that these can apply to characters of any gender!
I omitted kamidere because it’s so rare, and I think it’s fairly similar to himedere.
Also, it’s not like I made this poll for you either, so don’t get any bright ideas.
A possibly helpful glossary of terms:
- -dere: cutesy, and makes up half of the other personalities
- tsun-: harsh, hard-to-get
- kuu-: cool, aloof
- dan-: shy, taciturn
- hime-: prince/princess complex
- yan-: obsessive
