How much do you know about Yandere? This page will teach you everything you need to know.

The Yandere (ヤンデレ) type refers to a character who starts out nice and sweet but eventually becomes dark and obsessive over the one they love. They become stalkers and use violence on, and possibly even murder, any person who gets close to their love interest — even if they’re too shy to simply speak with that person they have a crush on.

This word is an abbreviation of Yanderu (やんでる) which means to be mentally or emotionally ill and Deredere (デレデレ) which means lovey dovey.

And that should answer the question “What is Yandere?” You can find more information on subcultures and terms just like this in my growing Otaku Encyclopedia, including all other -Dere types!

    May I use this picture as a base for a fanart? I am bad at drawing Anime on the comuter and I like this very much 😉

    • It’s not really mine to give out or whatever. I just found it on Google. :p

        So you just postet it? Do you think you could find it again? I really want to ask the owner of the picture first if I may use it…

        • When I search google for an image to use as a featured image I usually select “Labeled for reuse” or one of those. If you’re using chrome, right click the image and select “Search Google for this image.” There are a massive number of results. I have no idea which was the original.
