I'd say it's black
I can't be honest
I say one thing but do another
If I'm told, "I love you"
I'd say, "I hate you"
I'm happy, but what am I saying?
Like putting salt
Into sweet vanilla...
- —Vanilla Salt, first ED of Toradora!
If we don't love each other, ...the reasoning won't start.
In that case, how can we say that we love each other?
'If you think you can solve it, just you try.' 'You're incompetent, like hell you can solve it.'
...Yeah, according to George-aniki, you call that sort of thing 'tsundora'.
Heheh, that brutal witch is finally starting to look a bit cute.
...If I meet her again, I wanna try saying 'You're such a tsundora.'
Subaru: (Beat Panel focused on her) Okay...! Tia!
Teana: Wai... what are you doing calling me that?
Subaru: You talked with Gin-nee, right? I should call friends or girls I get along with by a nickname.
Teana: You and I aren't friends or getting along together! I just don't feel like calling you 'Nakajima' after meeting Ginga-san!
Subaru: But right now we are partners. So let me call you that.
Teana: Geez... just do whatever you want! No matter what I say, you'll just keep being selfish, right?
Teana Narrates: At this time, I hadn't realized it, that my partnership with this weird girl was something that was going to continue for a very long time.
Yamada's Erogami: You hit him with the door yourself!
leaps to conclusions, cries, and turns to ice.
But when she laughs, the world is mine.
Harumi: You know, when a girl behaves all cold towards the guy she likes. It was popular a while back... Tsun... Tsun... Tsundara? No... Tsunjire?
Mikoto: Not a chance!

Don't be so nice to me like that.
See! We are hurting each other again.
I can't hear your words buried under the piles of lies.
Masking my real voice,
I hum to myself this melody.
To my gradually changing heart,
I will entrust my body.
nescio sed fieri sentio et excrucior
(Loose Translation of Above)
I hate, and I love. Perhaps you ask why I do this.
I don't know, but I feel it happening, and I'm in absolute fucking pain.
Jeremy: Natalie —
Natalie: Don't touch me!
Freddie: Then why'd you kiss me?!
Sam: I like you...
Freddie: So, you hate me and you like me...
Sam: Now you see why I need to be in here?
As long as you don't care
No, he can't read my poker face
(She's got to love nobody)"
Your blood like winter freezes just like ice
And there's a cold lonely light that shines from you
You'll wind up like the wreck you hide behind that mask you use
Smoking a lot of cigarettes lately
But inside, you're just a little baby, oh
It's okay to say you've got a weak spot
You don't always have to be on top
Better to be hated than loved, loved, loved for what you're not"
Are a blade of unmelting ice
Except everything you had and what was left after that too..."
Sometimes I wanna slap you in your whole face
There's no one quite like you
You push all my buttons down
I know life would suck without you
You just caught me by surprise
If you were to give me a kiss out of here
Well, I'd have to give you a slap in return"
You can bet your boots she loves you
If she said she hates you
That can also mean she loves you
—>— Rheme song of Gidget
She's "I can't find a thing to wear." Now and then she's moody.
You are a pretty bird that pecks at me;
You are a little squirrel on a tree,
Pelting me with the prickly fruit of the pine;
A diamond, torn from a crystal mine,
Not like that milky treasure of the sea,
A smooth, translucent pearl, but skilfully
Carven to cut, and faceted to shine.
She's fire and ice.
A little crazy, but it's nice.
And when she gets mad,
you best leave her alone.
She'll rage just like a river,
then she'll beg you to forgive her.
She's every woman that I've ever known.
And my diamond in a coal mine, yes you are.
You're my bright leaf on a fall tree,
and a rattler when you don't need me,
you're my flower of the desert, yes you are.
And she'll carelessly cut you, and laugh while you're bleeding
But she'll bring out the best
And the worst you can be
Blame it all on yourself...
... She's frequently kind then she's suddenly cruel
She can do as she pleases, she's nobody's fool
And she can't be convicted, she's earned her degree
And the most she will do
Is throw shadows at you
But she's always a woman to me
You're yes then you're no
You're in then you're out
You're up then you're down
You're wrong when it's right
It's black and it's white
We fight, we break up
We kiss, we make up
You don't really want to stay, no
But you don't really want to go...
I'm a child, I'm a mother,
I'm a sinner, I'm a saint,
I do not feel ashamed;
I'm your hell, I'm your dream,
I'm nothing in between,
You know you wouldn't want it any other way...
Up to my old tricks
But it won't last forever
Next day I'm your super girl
Out to save the world
And it keeps gettin' better
Just 'cause I die when you're gone
Just 'cause I think of you in bed
Don't let it go to your head
You come on like a flame, then you turn the cold shoulder.
You think that I'm only (tangled up in me)
When everything I do is only to get tangled up in you
You wanna know more, more, more about me
I'm the girl that's sweeping you off your feet
Hey! Hey! Hey!
Can't you see I want you by the way I push you away? Yeah!
Don't judge me tomorrow by the way I'm acting today
Mix the words up with the actions do it all for your reaction. Yeah!
Get tangled up in me
A hopeless fate will turn into love one day
A one way expression of "tsunderation"
"I love you," it's hard to understand, isn't it?
And it just figures that we'll never figure them out, first she's Jekyll, then she's Hyde...
At least she makes a lovely pair.
I won't say it, no no
(You swoon, you sigh,
Why deny it, uh-oh)
It's too cliche
I won't say I'm in love!
Gonna make you want everything you haven't found
I'm gonna hold your hand, then ask you to stand
Ten feet away
And stupid and perfect
I hate you I want you
I lalalala love you
I used to hahaha hate you
And now I really fucking love you
She will turn to me and start to cry
And she promises the earth to me
And I believe her
After all this times I don't know why
She's the kind of girl who puts you down
When friends are there, you feel a fool
When you say she's looking good
She acts as if it's understood
She's cool, cool, cool, cool
Oh, did you think I meant you?
That would be funny if it werenít so sad,
Well you have been replaced,
I donít need anyone now,
When I delete you maybe Iíll stop feeling so bad...
—>—GLaDOS, Want You Gone, Portal 2
She knocks me off of my feet
And I can't help myself I don't want anyone else."
I canít stand how much I need you
And I hate how much I love you, boy
But I just canít let you go
And I hate that I love you so..."
The higher the hurdle you have to leap, the more satisfying it feels once you're over it!
Weiss: Shut up! Don't touch me! (hugs Ruby closer)
If you give me time to uncurl, I'll eventually relax and not be so prickly.
He'd rather die a fiery death than kiss
A girl with zero sex appeal, a geek
(he says it twice for extra emphasis).
So why the constant stares? I ask. He lies.
He hates the sight of me, he quickly shouts Ė
Without the scorn his panicked oath implies.
Melissa: (blushing) Well, maybe I do, but... wait. I HAVE A BOYFRIEND, FINN! (throws Finn to the ground)
Hmph. Looks like you managed to hold on till the end. Do you hate me now? Go back to Tsundere... if you insist. (But if you think I'm gonna miss you, think again.)
