    Question about the tsundere stereotype

    I honestly just don't see the appeal about the archetype, or at least how it's handled a lot of the times. I get the basic principle of dude makes a goof -> tsundere kicks his ass, which is fine, especially is the dude really earned it. The thing that irks me is how most of the time it just devolves into the things that make the tsundere to go off becoming more and more harmless and a lot of the time are not even the poor guys fault. Take anime like Ranma 1/2, Inuyasha, Kore wa zombie desu ka, Love Hina for example, I wonder if people just ignore the abrasive behaviour the tsundere in those shows have or if they are actually enjoying seeing them pummel a guy for the smallest transgressions.

    So, do you guys also think that tsundere only really work if the beatings are well-earned? If not, what makes the stereotype enjoyable to you?

    Yknow, I'd like to see an anime for once that instead of playing the tsundere for cheap laughs and running gags actually takes it dead-serious and has the cast treat this behaviour like a serious problem. An anime that shows the struggle of a tsundere having to deal with her anger issues and the backlash that they incur would be a nice change of pace.
