There’s no need to explain ツンデレ[tsundere] now, but like xxデレ[xx-dere] has a lot of types, there are some different types even on tsundere depending upon her temper. So today, I shall focus on some classification for this.
This is something like a comparative form in English, in other words, it should be decided depending upon how cold and sweet she is to you.
a. ツンテレ[tsuntere]: Don’t mispronounce it as tsunDere. This テレ means 照れ[tere] which is a noun form of 照れる[tereru]. 照れる means to be shy. Literally it means cold-and-shy. Caught on, haven’t you? This type of girl is cold to you like tsundere, but she is too shy to be perfectly cold. Furthermore, she often blushes at you in spite of being cold. So we can easily tell she tries to be stronger in order to hide her shyness.
b. ツンアホ[tsun’aho]: You can also say ツンバカ[tsunbaka] or ツンドジ[tsundoji]. アホ, バカ, and ドジ mean the same thing, stupid or an idiot. Even though she is so cold to you, she seems to be clumsy. She would goof up or mess things up, so eventually she can’t be cool in front of you. Because she actually cares about you so much, whatever she does doesn’t go well. You would see how clumsy she actually is. I think Louise in Zero no tsukaima could be this type.
c. ツンドラ[tsundora]: I already mentioned this a long time ago, however this time is different. If she is too cold and cool to show her dere-side, she would be this. Like tundra, the way she treats you is like a blizzard! Maybe C.C in Code Geass could be.
d. ツンギレ[tsungire]: ギレ[gire] stems from a verb, キレる[kireru] which means to get mad. Nah, it’s cold-and mad?? What’s that? If she keeps being cold and you don’t know why, watch out, it might lead to her breakdown. You have to figure out her feeling before she gets mad! Find out her dere-side no matter how hard she is! Don’t leave her alone! lol
So I would like to place like below,
Oh, speaking of C.C., I went to eat ramen with her. There’s almost no dere-side in her! 😄
