Where does yandere come from?
How do you use i. Click To See The Answer! A yandere is a character, most often female and in anime, who become violently possessive of a love interest. Yandere is a portmanteau of two Japanese words. Such behavior might include brutally murdering other girls out of jealousy. The term originates and is used predominantly in Japanese media, such as anime and manga, reaching back to the s, though yandere took off as a character type in the early s. However, yandere can sometimes refer to characters in other genres as well. Yandere is a spinoff from tsundere , another anime character archetype, one applied to characters who are sometimes deredere , or lovestruck.
The usage of the character type has led to criticism over the amount of violence in works such as School Days. Although the character type has been used in anime and manga since Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam in , conscious use of the term only began around the turn of the millennium. Yanderes are usually, but not always, female characters. For example, Rolo Lamperouge from the Code Geass series can be considered a yandere for his ruthless devotion to the series' protagonist Lelouch who himself rises in arms against his father and his empire to create a better world for his little sister , as his affection grows to the point he will attempt to kill even those who are close to Lelouch in order to not be replaced. Not all yandere are prone to committing murder, but some even inflict self harm, such as Yuri from the game Doki Doki Literature Club.
Yandere Simulator is an upcoming stealth action video game in development by YandereDev. Players control Ayano Aishi  nicknamed Yandere-chan , an apathetic Japanese high school girl who has developed a crush on a fellow student Taro Yamada,  nicknamed " Senpai ". Due to her yandere nature, this can be accomplished by the player through a diverse array of methods ranging from peaceful to violent, including matchmaking , befriending , betrayal , gossip , expulsion , frameup , kidnapping , electrocution , crushing , poisoning , drowning , burning , homicide , faked suicide , incited suicide , murder—suicide after torture , and other rival-specific elimination methods, as well as simple elimination methods using various weapons seen throughout the game, such as a kitchen knife, circularsaw , a baseball bat, and katana. Throughout the game, Ayano can receive aid from an information broker calling herself "Info-chan", who provides her with weapons, plans, items, and other favors in exchange for panty shots , information and blackmail material. Ayano must also avoid being witnessed while performing criminal activities or suffer penalties, such as loss in reputation that makes it harder for other students to trust her, diminishing sanity that discourages Senpai and hinders their ability to carefully carry out any crimes, to an immediate game over by being caught by Senpai for acting suspiciously around him, being caught in the act of a crime by him, or being apprehended by students or a teacher. The developer defines the current state of Yandere Simulator as a "playable debug sandbox build".
