“Yandere” is a word coined by combining “sick” and “dere,” and is said to have been originally derived from “tsundere”. It refers to a person whose fondness for another person reaches the limit and leads to extreme behavior that may seem out of the ordinary.
In the world of anime and manga, this “Yandere” character attribute has somehow taken root. In anime and manga, this “Yandere” character has become a common sight.
In this article, I would like to introduce a famous work, “Mirai Nikki (Future Diary).
The most dangerous stalker with a tremendous range of emotions
Yuno Gasai is the heroine of “Future Diary” by Sakae Esuno. She is a classmate of the main character, Yukiteru Amano, and is ostensibly the perfect, flawless, beautiful girl that everyone admires …….
Her true nature is a stalker who is in love with Yukiteru. In fact, she is outrageously violent and has violent emotional ups and downs, often becoming enraged when she doesn’t get her way. Because of her excessive love for Yukiteru, she will commit even criminal acts for him without any difficulty. He also seems to have no interest in anyone other than Yukiteru and is so jealous that he tries to kill any woman who comes close to him.
Like Yukiteru, Yuno is one of the Book of Future Nikki’s possessors, which can record Yukiteru’s future every 10 minutes. The fact that she specializes in stalking, right down to her ability, is also too special. She is truly a crazy heroine.
I dare not mention it here to avoid spoilers, but you will be horrified by Yuno Wagatsuma’s abnormality, which becomes clearer as the story progresses.
It is clear that the yandere character is motivated by an excessive affection for her subject. This infatuation can make the recipient of the affection feel a sense of shock, but in a sense, it can be said to be a sign of pure feelings. It is a little bit too aggressive or bizarre for the average person to understand. ……
