What is Yangire?

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

The Yangire (ヤンギレ) type is similar in some ways to Yandere. It is a character who may start out nice and sweet but becomes very aggressive and psychotic. However, unlike Yandere, Yangire do not become violent because of they attraction to a character. Instead, they may snap simply because they’re irritated with a character that has nothing to do with their love interest.

This word is an abbreviation of Yanderu (やんでる) which means to be mentally or emotionally ill and Kire (きれ) which means to cut or snap.

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