Welcome! This is the eight Tsundere or Not, a series of interactive threads where all club members are invited to evaluate our favorite tsundere characters. In every thread, you decide the character's level of tsundere-ness and give them a score in the poll rating meter. In scale of 1 to 5, rate them according to what you’ve learned in the anime, manga, novel, etc.
Prior to voting please understand the meaning of tsundere. As you know, the term became broader over time and used more arbitrarily by fans on the internet. There are various qualities and characteristics that define a character to be recognized as one, and some of those are listed in this thread. The simple definition of tsundere is available on our club page but you can read further at the Wikipedia entry.
If you don't recognize the character presented, do say so or simply skip the thread. Hopefully you might recognize her better someday and check back on this poll. Just click on the "View Results” link if you want to see the result without voting.

I want to know this too. When does Mai ever show a tsuntsun side?
I think some people here don't know what tsuntsun/deredere or tsundere really means. Just because the character is mysterious and quiet doesn't mean that she qualifies as tsuntsun.
I really want to hear the motivation of those 12 that voted a 5 -.-'
I was also about to rate her 4 or 5 but after reading some of these comments I guess you guys have a point. Sure Mai is combative, but she doesn't portray that in the way a tsundere usually does it (aggressive the guy she likes). She has a caring, loving side to her but only shows it towards the end of her arc. So yeah, she deserves a 2. ^_^
