Types of Anime Characters

Each character has their characteristics and personalities, but there are some that are often standardized and categorized in anime. In this article, we'll look at anime character types and their common personalities.

Characters with Dere Dere personality

We will not delve into these types of Japanese personality that are quite present in anime, because we have already written about them in a article on Japanese Personalities. Fortunately we will talk briefly for you to understand.

A onomatopoeia Japanese DEREDERE [デレデレ] expresses a loving and passionate feeling. The word Deredere refers to an energetic, cheerful, and kind person to other people around. They are literally lovely girls.

There are variations called tsundere, yandere, kuudere and dandere. The most popular is tsundere, which describes a person who is cold, violent, and irritating, but who, deep down, has feelings of love for the person, but cannot show them.

Yandere, on the other hand, refers to a person who is locally in love, to the point of doing things like killing for love. Dandere are low-key characters with a quiet, antisocial and withdrawn personality. kuudere are cold, indifferent and expressionless people.

If you want to see a list of tsundere, kuudere, yandere, and dandere characters, go to the article on that subject. We will not include a list of characters in this anime. Fortunately, we'll leave you an image to see if it remembers your mind:
