Not to be confused with "Utsudere".

Shundere[1] refers to a character who is sad or very depressed all of the time. Shundere characters often are sad from the start and don't have much of a reason to feel like this, unlike utsudere.


The word is a compound of "shun..." (しゅん。。。), a Japanese sound effect representing melancholy, down, sad, depressed, etc., and "deredere" (デレデレ), which means "lovey dovey".


While a full smile on a shundere character's face might be out of the question, their love interest can help them open up and feel accepted. They have a tendency to ignore and avoid other people for no reason. A shundere is sad almost or all of the time for minimal things.

The second type of shundere are those that don’t show their sadness to people and hide it all the time but they are actually really sad constantly. If they are seen smiling, it will probably be a false smile that they show in public to hide their inner sadness.
