I'm doing a video on yanderes and I'd like to know, do you like them, hate them or, are you indifferent about them? I'd also love to get some of your thoughts on why people are obsessed with yanderes, thank you!

Yanderes make funny faces and are totally over the top in general, that's why I'm quite fond of this trope.

It's basically all about yanderes. Like why people like them why people dislike them and why some people are obsessed with them and so on.

Seems interesting. I'd like to see the video after it ends. It's possible?

I love writing [Azula x Female reader] fics where I portray her as super possessive and abusive to a certain degree... Yanderes are usually too much. I like a milder version of a yandere, one who manipulates and only use physical abuse SOMETIMES.

Yandere would make sexual intercourse more exciting since each time could be your last time :)

People obsess over yandere's because of the intimate connection towards the MC they have. A dere that probably gravitate more towards lonelier people.

I hate yanderes because, no matter how, they always get on my nerves. I can't stand their mad faces and their over-the-top crazy attitude, even worse if they have no reasons for doing so. I'm more into kuuderes and kamideres, and tsunderes a bit (except if they are plain annoying, like Noelle from Black Clover). They also tend to shout a lot, which makes me hate them even more.

I think many people are obsessed with yanderes because, if you can deal with their annoying personalities, they can be very interesting characters after all.

I don't dislike them
I just cannot treat them seriously in a scenario where it should had realism in it, specially when he/she kills someone
"I'm alright, because
The warmth on my back
Is from you, protecting me
My bent heart is being straightened out
I feel like I can keep on walking when I see your face
That time, I was able to gather my wishes and jump up
because of your words of encouragement"

It's not like it exist that super many yanderes.

I woud say I like them but it exist a few I hate.

Fuyou, Kaede woud be the first yandere i ever saw and it's the reason why i will not rewatch Shuffle. I can't handle her, she become a verison of a yandere that is just annoying.

And the second one is Lamperouge, Rolo, he killed one of my favorite characters from Code Geass.

I like the dere characters it's a cool character personilty and makes me enjoy alot of shows thanks to that.

I'm no expert on yanderes but I think their exaggerated feelings of possessiveness and jealousy are excellent tools for exploring unhealthy and violent relationships (not all yandere relationships have to be unhealthy though). As for what makes them interesting, for me I'd say the intensity of their feelings and the extreme lengths they're willing to go to make them exciting to observe if written well. Like all such character archetypes they have a big problem with being too cliche so for a good yandere it's important that there's more to depth to them.

Have you ever heard the saying, "All the best people are crazy?"

Yanderes tend to be a form of dark entertainment, when it comes to certain anime tropes or genres.

To me, what makes a character who falls under this trope entertaining are both their motives and overall development.

Can't spit out examples for the life of me.

I love Yanderes, a lot more than Tsunderes at least.

Yanderes know what they want and try to get their hands on it even if it means killing someone or doing stuff. I admire that quality.

I hate them all. They are generic characters that just lend to make you tense and make the blood fly on the screen.

I mostly dislike them.
If they're a tad protective of me but wouldn't kill, I suppose I wouldn't mind.
But since most I know of kill when someone even glances your way, I'm not all that fond of them.

The whole you could die any second thing is a giant pull for yanderes, for me personally.

As someone who has been STALKED IRL already, I pretty much despise them; they are my most disliked archetype ever.

If they are a villain, okay....but please please PLEASE don't make them the protagonist or canon love interest.

I do like yanderes, they can be played a few ways, depending on how they act and what they are in. I forget many of the names from love tyrant, but the Cupid commits herself into the relationship she puts much of the main cast in, making everyone in the relationship immortal, meaning the yandere flipping out is all played for laughs, meanwhile, yuno gassia is many people's poster child for the nightmare fuel obsessive yandere

i have always hated yanderes, i like mentally ill male characters better. if there's a mentally ill female character, i hate her being portrayed as overly crazy and stab happy with no depth to her beyond that, and i hate how yanderes "crazy" is typically "love" driven. it's really a bad portrayal of mental health in anime overall, and it also seems almost fetishitic/creepy with the aspect of attempting to "dominate" over rivals and whatnot. it's creepy. it typically grosses me out. and for the record, whilst i like some abusive male characters, and some certain psychopaths, i don't consider them "yanderes" because they're usually not driven by "love" and they're not all superficial.

feels so good to forget ya, i've become someone better

Used to like them then started disliking them for a while thanks to mirai nikki.

I am neutral to them now.

I like female yanderes, seeing them kill others for their personal objectives is very satisfying.

Man. I joined MAL just to say these words.

I think yandere are one of the best things made ever (since I'm really into psychos thing).I saw only Mirai. Nikki and Elfen Lied as yandere animes so don't know anything about male one's but think female's are great (especially Yuno). Just look how cute is yuno when stabbing or killing. Thanks @deknjiff for explaining in images.
I think people are obessed with yanderes thing cause they are crazy and have hard feelings.
