What makes male tsundere so superior to female tsundere?
I'm going to go in the opposite direction to the posts in this thread and say it's because men are naturally not tsun at all in real life when they like someone. Unless he's some PUA tryhard, most men are like desperate puppies when they like a girl and will be entirely agreeable and kind to her. A guy hiding that behind a mean facade is cute because it's rare.
Depends if his tsundere is cute or just plain annoying.
Most shoujo tsundere liked-by-others-popular guy are the shittiest of character. While the tsundere that was hated by others but actually had a good heart is the best thing that can happens to a character.
Pic related, he's a best.
Tsunderes really only shine best when their love interest is also tsundere. Watching them both come to terms with their feelings is cute as fuck so long as they don't beat the shit out of each other.
And usually male tsunderes are worse. Anyone who reads shoujo can tell you that, but a well written one has the charm of being more rare than a well written female.
In shoujo in the rare cases it happens it's
>tsundere slaps love interest
>drama for 20 chapters over it and usually the guy apologizes, if he doesn't he does something to make it up to love interest
When you reverse the roles it
>tsundere slaps love interest
>blown off as comedy
>girl usually doesn't apologize or appeal remorseful
Except the boy both physically and emotionally abuses the main girl in shoujo and it's not just treated as slapstick, it's disgusting. Fuck I remember shoujo where the guy threatened to rape the girl and it was treated as comedy.
Any girl can be tsundere and still get a guy's attention, a tsundere man has to be very high quality to have women come at him after being openly rejected.
Plus, and this has been posted before in this thread, but I don't think a male tsundere has ever beat up his love interest. There are good and bad tsundere (or maybe just bad and worse), but you can be sure it's going to be one of the worst ones when they resort to physical violence, and men have that option written off.
The guys that hit and threaten to rape aren't tsunderes, they don't hide the fact that they are interested in their love interest. In fact, I don't think a rapist can be tsundere, even if he treats the woman like shit, he's still craving sex so much he went that far.
Why do male protagonists ruin a show with a great MC
Best male tsundere or bestest male tsundere?
Male tsundere abuse girls all the time in shoujo. Females like it.
because at least they are not complete assholes to the people they are in love with,just a bit stuck up.
But apparently a lot of guys like women that dismiss them and that are violent to them.
I have no problem if that is your kink in fiction,but it's ironic seeing how many prefer girls who are straight up violent and dimiss feelings.
14-sai no koi
contains more than one love story, but the teacher/student one mentioned is the best.
Worst one is the one about the guy whose also in love with said teacher, stalks her constantly and doesn't get that he has literally no chance.
>shoujo men don't hit women for comedy
he's pretty great, even though i loathed him at first. best character arc in the show without a doubt. rue is a close second.
FUCKING this. unpopular tsundere that is bad at expression is the best trope and makes me adore the character, male or female
