Top 20 Tsundere Girls in Anime

Everyone loves a tsundere. They are the type of girl that is prickly like a cactus on the outside, but as sweet as sugar deep inside. Originally coined by dating sim fans, players (and soon anime viewers) were decidedly fond of the “tsun tsun,” or harsh, exterior, and working towards spotting the “dere dere,” or soft, interior.
