Hey, my name is Christian and I'm 22 years old. In general I've just recently started getting serious about anime since the start of last year. I watched a few like The Avatar: Last Air Bender, which was really the only anime I watched before this year. But I was given some anime, starting off with GunParade March, which intrigued me a bit even though it was an alright series. But that was the start of a growing addiction, which is still rapidly increasing into an unhealthy hobby (long hours watching anime :P).
I'm currently just trying to explore all the different kinds of anime that are available. At the moment I've watched alot of mecha, slice of life, romance, and now action anime. And since the animes I've seen still have not progressed as far as their manga adaptations, I'm starting to get into manga as well. I feel overwhelmed but happy to be since that means I can keep enjoying anime for a long, long, looongg time to come.
Feel free to randomly drop suggestions of what I should read or watch as I'm open to almost any anime or manga that is available. Anyways thanks for reading, ska-douche!
Tsundere is derived from the words "tsuntsun" and "deredere," meaning "aloof, pointed, morose" and "exhausted, lovestruck" respectively. A tsunderekko (tsundere girl) can express this in one of two ways:
1) She is initially combative/aloof/cold, either towards the protagonist or everybody, and through the course of the story opens up and becomes emotionally vulnerable and loving (basically a personality shift through time).
2) She is combative/aloof/cold on the outside, but secretly she feels very vulnerable and loving (basically she puts up a farce to hide the 'real her').
This is a very broad character archetype that plays a variety of roles in anime and manga. From love interest to enemy to comedic relief, tsunderekko are versatile and dynamic, always doing something and certainly never being boring. Here is a place for us to come together and revel in all that is tsundere. (Definition from Tsundere Club)

Asuka Langley Soryu (??·???·?????)
Asuka Langley Sorhyu is Second Children, who pilots Evangelion Unit 02. She is from Germany, but with an American father and a half-German, half-Japanese mother. Her mother, Kyoko Zeppelin Sorhyu, went insane after an Eva-related experiment and began to believe that a doll that resembled Asuka was, in fact, her daughter, to the point that she refused to even acknowledge the real Asuka. Kyoko Zeppelin Sorhyu committed suicide on the very day that Asuka was chosen to become an Eva pilot. On that day, Asuka promised herself that she would never cry again. This event gives her an innate hatred of dolls and all things that she perceives to be doll-like, especially Rei. Asuka's father later remarried a woman for whom Asuka feels no affection. Asuka feels the need to verbally and sometimes physically lash out at everyone around her, except to her sole friend, Hikari, and her unrequited crush, Kaji, who is Misato's ex-boyfriend and more than twice Asuka's age. On her better days, however, she can be quite cheerful and friendly. (MAL Character Info)

Lucy is a teenage diclonius girl, around 18 years old and the central protagonist/antagonist of the series. Lucy has four vectors with a limited range of about two meters. However, she can be swift and lethal within that range, and will use any nearby objects as high velocity projectiles to kill at greater distances. She is also capable of stopping or deflecting most standard ammunition when she concentrates on the task. (MAL Character Info)
Nyu is a split personality of Lucy that developed after a .50 BMG round pierces the metallic helmet encasing her head. Nyu has a childlike personality and infantile knowledge of the world, and lacks spoken language skills, being able to say only "Nyu" and "Kohta" most of the time. Near the end of the anime, she develops a wider vocabulary, with the ability to say phrases like "Don't cry, Kohta!". Nyu is innocent and incapable of violent acts, a foil to the normally cold and sadistic Lucy; she is the manifestation of her "good side". When Nyu is attacked violently (or hit on the head), she regresses into Lucy; likewise, when Lucy is treated with love and kindness, or wants to hide herself from Kohta, she will change back into Nyu. While Nyu exists first due to trauma, it is believed that Lucy subconsciously encourages her presence due to her feelings of guilt towards Kohta and to prevent her from harming him (directly or indirectly). In the manga, this is confirmed by Lucy herself. (MAL Character Info)
