What is Dandere?

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

The Dandere (だんデレ) type refers to a character who is often silent and to themselves. It may be due to shyness or just because they’re the quiet type. However, when alone with the person they are attracted to, they usually come out of their shell and become more loving.

This word is an abbreviation of Danmari (だんまり) which means silent and Deredere (デレデレ) which means lovey dovey.

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