Louise Françoise le Blanc de la Vallière, tsundere?

08/29/2009

It’s pretty hard to find topics to talk about when you’re way behind on current anime (Especially if you’ve lost enthusiasm in it. I’m looking at you Canaan… and also Haruhi, jeez, I’m one episode away from breaking out of Endless Eight, I guess the arc is so good that I refuse to put an end to it.(Let’s watch the first five episodes again so it NEVER ends!! jk jk). So I decided to write up another tsundere? article.

Let’s focus on one of the four tsundere wonders with this one; Louise Françoise le Blanc de la Vallière, arguably my favorite character and a character that I can never remember the full name of. There is no doubt her tsundere power levels are through the roof, but it is not clear how well she fares with the rest of the Kugi-four. The purpose of this article is to hopefully solve that mystery. Ohh, suspense, suspense!

Ogiue Chika, tsundere?

06/08/2009
This is my second article in the tsundere? series.  Today we will tackle the topic of Ogiue, the withdrawn fujoshi from Genshiken. The character archetype tsundere is definitely not as simple as black and white.  There are characters who are blatantly tsundere (Kugimiya) and ones that feature tsundere tendencies but aren’t necessarily tsundere themselves (borderline tsundere).  There are also different forms of tsundere, such as ones that expresses their tsun tsun side by beating the shit out of the protagonist (the violent ones), ones that give the protagonist the cold shoulder, ones that don’t necessarily express their tsundere toward a love interest, but at the entire cast, etc.  We will hopefully explore all of these aspects of this topic, but for now…

Tanabe Ai, tsundere?

05/15/2009

It has been only recently that I’ve taken noticed of the tsundere archetype and fallen completely in love with it.  The reason behind this obsession comes from my discovery of Kugimiya Rie.  She is the queen of tsundere, my top three favorite characters of all time in anime, Louise from Zero no Tsukaima, Taiga from Toradora!, and Shana from Shakugan no Shana are all voiced by her, and surprisingly enough, are all tsundere goddesses.

Now these three characters can be seen as blatantly tsundere, but what about some other characters who’s tsundereness aren’t as explicit?
