Kuudere, Dandere & Emotionless Girls Lovers

Information
╔══════════╗
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.
╚══════════╝ ╔══════════╗
KUUDERE:
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:
╚══════════╝ ╔══════════╗
DANDERE:
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.
╚══════════╝ ╔══════════╗
EMOTIONLESS GIRL (EG):
A female character that does not express 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.

Wait, do you think there's a change it'll get an anime adaptation ?

DrMondaiNashi | Oct 13, 3:33 PM
"My wife has no emotions"

Pog, now we just wait for the anime adaptation.

You know, the fact the kuudere club has a whole pinned post with statistical data about the trope and sub-categories for it is ironically fitting

_12K | Oct 12, 11:04 AM
Maybe Sumika from Mijuu na Futari as well, but that's debatable


DrMondaiNashi | Oct 10, 5:38 PM
yeah, no worries, sometimes that's how it goes, I'm sure it's happened to me sometime, she just looks like she would be a match and then bam, nothing goes as expected.

I know some people are commenting cool girls are getting scarce as of late, as in season anime-wise, but hey that's not exactly true, we just got Aharen san and Komi this year, and that was barely like what? 5 months ago? if anything I'm glad we're not getting overly saturated.

@DrMondaiNashi hmmm sorry it took a while but thanks. I often judge somone to be one when most of the times they dont show expression
