Tsundere Mash-Up

Welcome to the first Tsundere Mash-up blog (female edition)! Our combatants are Asuka Langley Soryu (Neon Genesis Evangelion) and Lum (Urusei Yatsura). I pick these two because they are oldest and well known Tsundere characters.


I tried not to give too much facts that leads to spoilers. Beware of the facts I give if you are looking forward to try these series.

Definition of Tsundere Characters

"Tsundere" is a portmanteau of two Japanese phrases: "tsuntsun" and "deredere" and refers to characters who act hostile to the object of their affections, but secretly (or not-so-secretly) harbor feelings for them.

Via Anime Vice

Asuka SoryuLum Invader
  • She is a prideful woman who wants to be recognized as an Evangelion pilot.
  • Her love interest is Shinji Ikari who she finds a pathetic loser. Despite how she views Shinji, she flirts and teases Shinji. Like all tsundere characters, she can get abusive. She uses words as main form of abuse.
  • Lum is an Oni Alien of royal heritage. Her race invades the planet earth, and when Lum plays tag with an Earth boy, Ataru Moroboshi, to determine the fate of man kind, she falls in love with him.
  • Lum is only abusive with Ataru if she sees Ataru flirting with other girls. She shocks Ataru for his unfaithfulness.

Given the facts, who do you see as the most/better Tsundere character?

Note: Unfortunately, I have not seen the anime shows to get to know these girls. Feel free to correct facts that I researched. A lot of people argue that Lum is not a tsundere character. I couldn't think of classic character of a well known series to combat Asuka.

I will do more mash-ups since Gia did some for the Moe concept. Oh yeah, I welcome any improvements to these threads.
