Kuudere, Dandere & Emotionless Girls Lovers



Greetings, and welcome to Kuudere, Dandere & Emotionless Girl Lovers, or KDEGL for short. As the name indicates, this is a club for people who like emotionless girls. Because there's something adorable about a girl who keeps the same expression no matter what.


Etymology: 素直クール, Honest Cool

Defined as, a potential love interest, from the main character's standpoint, whose attributes and features are "cool", with the possibility of "dere" during character development.

Any female character who is cold in the different ways a character can be portrayed as, distant, and inherently skilled who tends to outperform other girls in the same setting, this in turn adds to their independent and lonely ways, since they don't rely on others to accomplish difficult tasks and tend to come off as hard to approach in a friendly manner, they tend to be very objective and logical being able to see through complex deceptions, can be very clever in their speech though they are not typically very talkative. In the different anime examples, they tend to be stereotyped having more or less the same hair color and mannerisms, which are popularly believed to derive from Ayanami Rei (even though she is described as an emotionless girl in our club), besides her personality and physical appearance, other elements might be associated to the archetype, such as character role and voice acting.

Common traits observed in over 400 characters:


Etymology: 黙, Be quiet

Defined as, a potential love interest, from the main character's standpoint, whose attributes and features are "quiet", with the possibility of "dere" during character development.

Any female character who is determined to possess avoidant personality features, only rarely someone other than a minor character who is thoughtful and overly self-aware, because of this they come off as shy and introverted but also delicate and sweet, a DANDERE tends to have monologues, be it internal or actual instances of talking to themselves out of feeling conflicted, a DANDERE is mostly quiet, but can be very emotional* since the actual defining trait is more related to not speaking out loud rather than being calm and collected.

*In KDEGL, DANDERE characters are selectively chosen based on low emotional profiles. So a DANDERE like Kuronuma Sawako will not be listed, while a DANDERE like Kiyoura Setsuna will.


A female character that does not expresses emotions when an emotional response is elicited and expected.

A club-exclusive definition, this category of characters are divided into four subtypes with their own characteristic traits.

The character Sasa Kazamori was removed from the list.

The character Ten'i was replaced by Teni Shizen (18387) list_index 23 in the database.

Someone please check this character:

@But_A_Fly Duly noted.

Actually, I'm leaning yes on this one, she already scores 3/5 and that's only episode 1. Only voice, maybe I'm not that convinced on that one .. but it's good enough to pass as monotone.

I guess we need to wait before jumping to conclusions anyway.

Should we add submission for the charactor Aihara, Mei From the anime Citrus? As she appears to show multiple kuudere signs within the first ep of the anime

DrMondaiNashi | Jan 6, 10:29 AM
But we haven't talked that much about dandere yet, actually, what we discussed back in 2010 was mostly proposed by me without much input from anyone else, sometime this year I'm just gonna create another topic on what we know about dandere, and this time it'll be an open discussion (even if it means that we'll have to get rid of 50% of the database later because somehow they don't fit anymore .. more ELs just what I needed)

kuuderes_shadow | Jan 6, 1:06 AM
Well I know we've considered what is or is not a kuudere, what is or is not a dandere and what is or is not emotionless, so it was only a matter of time before we considered what is or is not a girl.

DrMondaiNashi | Jan 5, 8:09 PM
Found a dangerous breach on the definitions, but it's more like something that needs to be set and agreed upon, so I'm going to be notifying you guys in a while to vote on this matter.

Too tired right now.
