Tsundere Mash-Up

Welcome to the third Tsundere Mash-Up blog (female edition)! Our combatants are Shana (Shakugan no Shana) and Louise Françoise Le Blanc de La Vallière (The Familiar of Zero). Yesterday, I set up a match between Saya and Louise, but Daniel points out that Saya is not a tsundere and that she is just bitchy and whiny. My apologies, guys and gals, I haven't watch enough anime to learn the tsundere way. Don't get me started on Moe. I have no clue about that concept.

Anyway, let the tsundere battle begin! Both characters are voiced by Rie Kugimiya who is known for voicing lots of tsundere characters.

For those who are unfamiliar with Tsundere characters, here is a definition by our Anime Vice wiki editors:

"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.

Facts

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. Also, I used "implied" for love interests because some folks noted that I spoiled them about possible relationships. My bad.

  • Shana is a Flame Haze after making a contract with the Crimson god Alastor and fights Crimson Denizens.
  • Shana's implied love interest is Yuji Sakai.
  • Why she is a tsundere: Since she is a bit reclusive, she tends to get possessive of Yuji.
  • Forms of Abuse: She stabs Yuji with her sword.
  • Example: She beats Yuji every time Yuji sees her undress. Yuji does not do this on purpose.
  • Louise is from a noble lineage of mages, but she sucks at magic. She tries to summon a familiar but ends up summoning Saito Hiraga.
  • Louise's implied love interest is Saito.
  • Why she is a tsundere: She gets jealous and usually beats or whips Saito whenever she sees Saito talks with other girls.
  • Forms of Abuse: Physical - uses a whip or kicks Saito in the crotch.
  • Example: Louise gets jealous when Saito and Tiffany hang out. (I don't have an exact example. Feel free to add one.)

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

I noticed trailers are popular, but it's tough to find tsundere clips since I keep getting AMVs or awkward love moments.

If you have better videos, please leave them in the comments. I add them to the blog.

You're a Shana fan, right? Can you give me an example of a scene where Shana shows her tsundere side?

Thanks!

Oh, can I ask you the same question? Yeah, this is a tsundere battle blog. Kind like the battle thread but with a tsundere twist.

I got two girls. Who's the blonde one?

I found this image. It looks awesome! Don't know if it's fan art or not.

Is this fan art?

@takashichea: those pictures are pretty much inside joke for voice actor, since just about EVERY infamous tsundere characters are voice actress named Rie Kugimiya

also Shana's tsundere moments. Too bad there is no sound on this video

@buhssuht:

Is it me or the love interests of Rie Kugimiya's Tsundere characters look the same? They have same body physique, different hair style and color, but you can pallet swap them.

Thanks for the video. Yeah, it's sad we don't get to hear her whine and go urusai all the time. When I first heard her go like that, I didn't know what she said in English. Then, I remember what it meant in English.

@takashichea: That's official art, looks like it's from Megami Magazine, no idea what issue though. I just found a vector of it too. I think I've found the new default image for the tsundere page.

@Wraith:

Didn't know Louise and Shana's boyfriend are voiced by the same actor.

@Daniel_Newton:

Sweet, that's the best tsundere picture I seen!

Having these two go against each other this early is like putting Jordan against Kobe, Magic, or Lebron in the first round... or for an anime head, having a best shonen series battle where DBZ is placed against Naruto or One Piece in round 1.

@sickVisionz:

I don't have a tournament setting right now. I just going with the flow (thinking of who is a good match up) and everyone's recommendations since I don't watch a lot of shows with tsundere characters. Somehow, the shows I watch had tsundere characters which I never noticed.

IE: Rin Tohsaka from Fate Stay Night - I thought she was just playing hard to get with Shirou.

I depend on the folks here especially @Daniel_Newton: who is the expert on tsundere characters. I didn't know Rie Kugimiya who voices Happy of Fairy Tail and Kagura of Gintama does Tsundere characters. It was my first time watching one of the first Rie Kugimiya's tsundere characters, Astarotte of Astarotte's Toy. Yeah, I have to watch Shana or Familiar Zero to get deep in this stuff to become a true anime fan.

Folks here and in the wikia community were pretty shock that I haven't tried One Piece (I did get into since June), Neon Evangelion, and other anime series.

@sickVisionz:

Heh, what I meant is watch more anime with more of those concepts, Moe, Tsundere, etc. and try different genres. You know I'm a shonen, comedy, and a bit of mech fan. I haven't watch a lot of romance or Slice of Life stuff.
