I have seen a lot of hate about Tsunderes as of late, so I was just curious:

Which "Dere" Type is Your Favorite To See in Romance Anime?

To help you out, here are the fan definitions with examples:

Dandere refers to a character who is often silent and to themselves. It may be due to shyness or just because they’re the quiet type. However, when alone with the person they are attracted to, they usually come out of their shell and become more loving. (Yuki Nagato from Haruhi Suzumiya)

Kuudere refers to a character who is often cold, blunt, and cynical. They may seem very emotionless on the outside, but on the inside they’re very caring — at least when it comes to the ones they love. (Yukinoshita Yukino from Oregairu)

Deredere are very sweet and energetic, whose entire character archetype centres on their love for a single character. They are usually cheerful and happy and they tend to spread happiness to the ones around them. No matter what may happen, they quickly revert to their cheerful self. (Tachibana Marika from Nisekoi)

Yandere refers to a character who starts out nice and sweet, but eventually becomes dark and obsessive over the one they love. They become stalkers and use violence on, and possibly even murder, any person who gets close to their love interest — even if they’re too shy to simply speak with that person they have a crush on. (Gasai Yuno from Mirai Nikki)

Tsundere a character who is initially cold and even hostile towards their love interest, before gradually showing a warmer side over time, and keeps switching back and forth between the two. (Taiga from Toradora)

Bakadere are for the most part very innocent and sweet, but their stupidity outshines their other attributes. They are basically a clumsy girl or boy in love. In other words, this type is quite a ditz or a klutz, and they're like a 10 year old when it comes to love, in the way they swoon over people so easily, and handle it so amateur-ly. Bakadere characters also act childish and air-headed. (Mashiro Shiina from Sakurosou)

Run sounds like a mix of deredere and bakadere so I'll take the hybrid of those two

Deredere and dandere are quite opposites, but I can't decide between them.

I'd say Kuudere. After that Dandere.
I also like Yandere but not from the romance side of things.

My waifu is a deredere. But my favorite archetype is (non-abusive) tsundere.

I have a thing for tsunderes, for some reason. I feel like a lot of people dislike them, but I really do have a thing for them

Tsundere done right is a treat because it is a relatable personality quirk to be harsh to people one has a crush on. The psychology behind it is interesting and very real and watching that hard shell get broken down slowly, revealing the bright loving center... yeah, when done well it is unbeatable.

Kuuderes fucking rock though ngl if we just talking hotness then fuck yes kuuderes.

It's always gonna be Deredere, I just like nice and pleasant characters in general and especially when it comes to romance I can do without the mental issues that define a lot of the other archetypes.

Listen, everybody wants change, don't nobody want to change though
don't nobody want to pray, till they got something to pray for
now everybody's gonna die, but don't everybody live though

Yukinoshita isn’t really a kuudere
Also others would be Rei Ayanami from NGE, Angel(Tachibana Kanade) from Angel Beats, etc

I don't understand why Tsundere's are getting a lot of hate in the first place because I still like them. Kuudere's are my second favorite in romance anime series.

thank you so much...
after watching all the list that you link to me...I just wonder why Yukino is not kuudere? as far as I see, I believe that Yukino is one of them.

Tsundere. A silent here and dere, now and then would be nice too. WindAria is an example of a romance show that I enjoy but cannot watch anymore of that type consistently.
