Meme Corner: Which Anime Stereotype Are You?

So much anime, so many stereotypes.

Which one will you be?

Today, dear reader, instead of a review, I decided to post a meme that I found on TinierMe. It’s by no means inclusive of all the stereotypes to be found in anime, but it’s a start. I’ve obviously marked my own answers already, but I hope that you’ll note the ones that apply to you and figure out which anime stereotype you’re most like. As an added bonus I wrote a little bio for each result and listed some characters from anime that I’ve already reviewed who fit into each given genre. Don’t forget to scroll down to find out more about each type, and enjoy!

My Result: Half Tsundere, Half Meganekko. What’s yours?

ツンデレ Tsundere (Harsh Outside/Gentle Inside)

Congratulations, you’re one of the most popular anime stereotypes! I’m right there with you, as I don’t like to show my tender true feelings, at least in love. No shame in protecting yourself, says I! You get to join the ranks of characters such as Eri Sawachika from School Rumble, Saeko Busujima from H.O.T.D., and Kanako Sumiyoshi and Akari Kirishima from Nyan Koi!

ヤンデレ Yandere (Gentle Outside/Harsh Inside)
Congratulations, you’re… scary. Hey, we’re cool, as long as you don’t develop an obsessive crush on me. You could possibly consider Maria Kurenai from Vampire Knight one of your ilk (at least while Shizuka Hio possesses her) and Kagura Sohma from Fruits Basket is definitely borderline yandere, but really you’re much more like Kaede Sakura from Kämpfer or Kotone Kirishima from Nyan Koi!

メガネっ娘 Meganekko or Megane (Girl/Guy-with-Glasses Character)
I adore this type of character both in anime and in live action films. What’s not to love about a smart cutie who wears glasses? Akane Mishima from Kämpfer is on your team (at least when she’s not a Kämpfer, that is) as well as one of my fav anime gals ever, Tsukimi Kurashita from Princess Jellyfish. Kyoya Ootori from Ouran High School Host Club slightly fits this type, but he would be more accurately described as Stoic Spectacles.

突っ込み Tsukkomi (Angry Guy) and ボケ Boke (Dumb Guy)
These two go hand in hand like a Punch and Judy show. If you’re one of these types, the yin to your yang can’t be too far away. Why don’t you have them take this quiz as well? The two of you join the ranks of comedic anime pairs such as Germany and Italy from Hetalia: Axis Powers, Haruki Hanai and Kyousuke Imadori from School Rumble, and Ayu Daikuuji and Mayu Tamano from Rumbling Hearts.

大 和撫子 Nadeshiko (Perfect Wife)
I’ll give this type credit, you do know how to dress well, cook well, and kick ass. Just make sure to take some “you” time. Remember, it’s not all about your love interest! Mahoro Andou from Mahoromatic: Automatic MaidenYakumo Tsukamoto from School Rumble, and Tohru Honda from Fruits Basket would all get along famously with you.

Sexy Character
There’s no link because this type is pretty self-explanatory. You’re the life of the party, but avoid devolving into a drunken ill-mannered mess like Ms. Shikijo from Mahoromatic: Automatic Maiden. Though slightly ditzy, well-intentioned nurse Shizuka Marikawa from H.O.T.D. is a much better way to go, or even cheerful Tae Anegasaki, the nurse/basketball coach from School Rumble.

Loli or Shōta Character
Cute, cute, cute! Everyone loves a Loli (and if they claim not to, they must be a tsundere). Hey, if there’s a law against loving cake, stuffed animals, and being adorable, then lock me up! You have some excellent company with Momiji Sohma of Fruits Basket and Kotaro Mochizuki of Black Blood Brothers, but Mitsukuni Haninozuka (better known as Honey) of Ouran High School Host Club is the quintessential Boy Lolita.

And that’s all the fun we have time for today, kiddies. But hold onto your hats for more anime-themed memes further on down the otaku road!
