Today, we will explain why being a tsundere is not exactly the best thing to do in a loli-infused series (or chibi under rOr’s definition). Mei will be our example here as we exhibit three cases of why being a tsundere is not good.
Yes, this is a post about a pseudo-tsundere.
No, this is not an entry to indirectly diss Haruhi Suzumiya, the goddess.
Yes, this is as usual a parody entry.
1st case: Being dragged to doing something silly
During any discussion of the school festival, due to the need to involve herself and act all tsuntsun toward the others, she will usually try to stake her authority with everyone in the student council. Usually, tsundere will not really care whether it is important or not, but it’s just that dominateering behavior in themselves that caused them to argue and dictate proceedings.
Enter, the sudden escapist in playing dodgeball and an extremely “intelligent” group of people who conveniently picked the only person around.
Mei, the tsundere.
Good luck, Mei. Let’s see how you will get out of this fix you made for yourself with all the pitching and discussion about being a dodgeball expert.
“I am not exactly easy to get help from. I Am not a nice person.” Mei said.
Well done for a nomination in the “Best denial and attempt to escape from duty and be AWOL” entry of the year 2007.
And if you are thinking that saying all that classic tsundere words can make her escape from the predicament of playing dodgeball.
You are obviously so wrong.
I told you, being a tsundere does not work in Manabi Straight. You go on to play nevertheless.
2nd case: Speaking is the bane of tsunderes
I know just what you’re saying
so please stop explaining
don’t tell me ’cause it hurts no no no…
Yes, don’t tell her about it.
Every time I see you falling
I get down on my knees and pray
I’m waiting for that final moment
You’ll say the words that I cant say
Right, that you should stop being a tsundere. Tsundon bridge is falling down~
All right, lame and bad joke as usual.
The old cliche works here.
We came. We saw. We conquered the tsundere in dodgeball.
Good job, mates! Let’s see how she can get up now!
And she’s up for more!
She never learns, does she?
3rd case: No chance for tsundere escapism!
Even during your resting time, to act upon your deredere moments, you can get called up. Since tsunderes have most of their power in the face to face mode of communication, this is the greatest way to get trapped. No, not that trap.
Then, you get brought up to the balcony of the school while wearing your school uniform at night which is a fascinating thing because
1. I cannot understand why they cannot wear their normal clothes to school at night.
2. Isn’t there security at least in the school to prevent thieves from stealing the hi-tech stuff?
3. Don’t Manabi have anything else to do other than catching everyone and meeting at school?
4. And everyone ACTUALLY CAME without question.
Never mind. Hell with the realism. In with the cuteness and tsundere. So, being a tsundere is useless in the night. You generally lose powers, your energy to fight and generally be bowled over by extremely genki fat chubby lolis.
And one in an angel dress no less. Still, it’s hard to decide which chubby loli is cuter, extremely when they both have wings.
Who’s the other chubby loli with wings?
You can decide for yourself who’s better and tell us about it!
Edit: Stripey, the definitive lolicon, has spoken.
