    Anime Character Showdown - #1 Yandere Edition

    Anime Character Showdown!
    Where Characters Battle For Ultimate Glory


    Welcome to the first edition of the Anime Character Showdown. This is where your beloved animated characters will fight for the ultimate glory... No matter how unique, strong, cute or beautiful... Everyone is the same in front of your eyes!

    With this we proudly present our first Showdown. The Yandere edition!


    Here are the nomination rules:

    - Any member of MangaHelpers can nominate one anime character for the showdown by posting in this thread and explaining why said character should participate in the showdown. Please post a link to a picture of the character you’re nominating.

    - The nomination period will close once we have 12 nominees or a fixed amount of time has passed. The showdown will then begin right away.

    The voting rules:

    - You can only vote for 1 character, so choose wisely.

    - The voting will be done by voting in a poll.

    - We’ll have 2 rounds, the first round will last 48 hours, so the voting period will be of 48 hours and the final round will last 72 hours.

    - Only the 3 characters with the most votes will make it to the final round until finally one will be crowned as the absolute winner of the showdown. In case of a tie, we’ll have another round to break the tie.

    - If only 3 characters are nominated after the nomination period has passed we will start with the final round right away.

    - As soon as the first round has ended, it will be closed. After that I will reveal / count the votes and then I'll start the final round with the characters that have proceeded.

    - You’re more than welcome to discuss the characters participating in the showdown.

    -Please don’t bash the character a member nominates nor bash the person who nominates said character. This is for fun! <3~

    - And please remember, the forum rules also apply to this thread.

    - Rules will be edited as necessary.

    - End of the Nomination period: September 10, 2013.

    Re: Anime Character Showdown - #1 Yandere Edition

    Quote Quote:
    Yandere:

    - A Japanese term for a person who is initially very loving, caring, and gentle to someone (or at least innocent) they really, truly like and care for a lot before their romantic devotion becomes mentally destructive in nature, often through violence and/or brutality. The term is derived from the words yanderu (病んでる?) meaning a mental or emotional illness, and deredere (でれでれ?) meaning to show affection.

    - A fictional character who fits the archetype of being genuinely romantic, loving, kind, merciful, sparing, sweet and gentle, but is at the same time brutal, psychotic or deranged in behavior. The psychotic tendency can be both sudden and ever-present.
    I would like to nominate:

    Mizuki Himeji from Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu. She is very gentle, sweet and kind but she can go into Yandere mode when she gets jealous.



    Usually when a character becomes Yandere, she/he gets scary and crazy, but with Himeji…well yeah, she becomes a bit scary and crazy but her Yandere side is also funny and that is why I would like to nominate Mizuki for this showdown.
    Thank you so much for my cute avy GenjiChan!

    I nominate Kotonoha Katsura from School Days. The way I see, it'd be a major flaw of the showdown, if a psychopathic lover like her was left out.

    I would like to nominate Yuno Gasai from Mirai Nikki. Though I've never watched the anime, I've heard rumors about her and her yandere side, and I kind of like her. Seeing the pics and gifs of her just proves how interesting her character was.


    gosh.. I would like to nominate another character... too bad I can only have one nomination

    I nominate Lucy from Elfenlied



    Elfenlied was one of the first animes i watched after learning that there are other animes than Dragonball, Pokemon, Digimon or whatever out there and i have to say, the character of Lucy kind of shocked me, both of her sides, meaning her cruelty but also her naivety as Ny.

    Argh... It's so hard to decide between Yuno and Lucy...
    I guess Yuno is crazier, so I'll go with her.

    Yuno Gasai from Mirai Nikki.

    I'd like to nominate Shannon from Umineko. After all, you'd have to be a Yandere to orchestrate mass murder and blow up an entire island just to make your childhood crush notice you.

    ...
    I watched the whole first season and I'd have to say, she deserves the role. Ryoko Asakura is an interesting character, but she just doesn't match the depth to which Gasai Yuno is terrifying. First of all, Gasai Yuno is a main character in an anime that features dysfunctional people. Ryoko Asakura is just a side character in an anime about friends hanging out (and like Mirai Nikki, but to a lesser extent, a god). Secondly, Gasai Yuno is just creepy over all without actually going overboard psychopathic. All in all, even without spoilers, Ryoko can't measure up.

    My vote would be for Kyubey from Puella Magi Madoka Magica:


    ...but, Kyubey isn't a girl, and doesn't have a particular love interest, so much as he's the cute companion of magical girls.

    So, Gasai Yuno is best in my books. There are just so many tense scenes with her that, unlike other anime, aren't just overt psychopathic. In fact, she can be creepy even when she's not holding a knife in hand.

    There is a fine line between bad and good, and an even finer line between good and great.
    Even the most impossible dreams can become possible with time.

    Re: Anime Character Showdown - #1 Yandere Edition

    I nominate Rena Ryuuguu from Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni



    She's the first child yandere I came upon, seeing her go yan for the first time was quite disturbing, especially because it was pretty extreme. A lot of characters in Higurashi go ham but Rena still is the most hardcore, if push comes to shove. On the other hand she can be incredibly cute and quite badass, if she gets a bit less crazy serious.

    I nominate Yuno Gasai from Mirai Nikki. 'Nuff said. She is the definition of Crazy Bitch. But don't get me wrong. I love her.
