Top 10 Tsundere Characters in Hentai Anime

Tsunderes are quite possibly the most well-known of the character archetypes, and this popularity extends to hentai. In the context of pornography, a tsundere is a woman or man who usually appears disinterested in another character (or the idea of sex in general), but in actuality they desperately yearn for the chance to have sex as often as they can with whomever they are emotionally close to. All ten characters on this list fit that definition. On the surface, they seem cool and calm-headed, but once the sparks begin to fly, it quickly becomes apparent that they’ve been hiding their true feelings all along.

10. Nonoka from Kakushi Dere

  • Episodes: 3
  • Aired: Apr. 2013

It’s rare for a hentai to make me genuinely laugh. Yet Kakushi Dere succeeds in producing a few chuckles, in large part because it features some semblance of a plot (complete with character motivations and flashbacks), so the characters come off as actual people. As a result, their jokes feel like something that someone would say as opposed to just words to postpone the actual sex scenes.

Most of that humor comes from Nonoka, a tsundere to the absolute extreme. She’s a half step away from being violently homicidal, and regularly pulls off the deadpan glare, annoyed grimace, and haughty laugh. Then there’s the verbal abuse toward Kakushi Dere’s main character, and he’s no push over either. These two have verbal sparring matches between sexual intercourse and it’s, without a doubt, the best part of the hentai. Yes, despite the sex incorporating some impressive instances of boob play and doggy-style action, it will be the comedy routines, not the porn, that will keep you watching this porno. Blame Nonoka; she’s too well written.


9. Sukumi from Tsundere Inran Shoujo

  • Episodes: 2
  • Aired: Feb. 2012 – Apr. 2012

Nothing like a little blackmail to get a tsundere to open up. Tsundere Inran Shoujo follows a young man who, bored one hot summer day, visits his high school. He then stumbles upon one of his classmates, Sukumi, masturbating after she gets out of the pool. Unwilling to pass up on the opportunity, the main character confronts Sukumi and demands that she come to school every day over the summer to perform a variety of sexual acts. If she doesn’t, he’ll tell the whole school about how she was masturbating in public. Amazingly, his plan works.

Sukumi, though a proud tsundere, returns to sexually please her classmate again and again over the summer holiday. At first, she simply does it so the main character won’t tell anyone what type of person she is, but soon, the part of her that led her to masturbate in public causes her to enjoy her daily task. Turns out, beneath that guarded exterior lies a woman who’s desperate for a chance to have sex any chance she can.


8. Asahina from Ana no Oku no li Tokoro

  • Episodes: 2
  • Aired: Dec. 2014

Ana no Oku no li Tokoro is a very odd assortment of three very different stories. The first follows two high school students who are each stubborn tsunderes trying to one up one another on the “I’m only doing this to screw with you, it’s not like I like you idiot,” scale until they end up having sex. The rest of the hentai follows a two part story about a woman who cheats on her husband and her step-son’s sexual revenge on her to reclaim his father’s honor. For the purpose of this list, we’re only focusing on that first narrative, but be sure to watch the other two if you’re into darker kinks.

Asahina is the girl in the relationship in the first part of Ana no Oku no li Tokoro. However, like stated before, the boy she ends up having sex with is a pretty big tsundere too. Asahina gets to be on the list because she “wins” and proves to be the larger tsundere by getting her classmate to admit that he likes her first. The sex is pretty vanilla, and most of the enjoyment that you’ll get from this high school romance is from the two tsundere butting heads, not the actual sex.


7. Kiriha from Tsun Tsun Maid wa Ero Ero Desu

  • Episodes: 2
  • Aired: Mar. 2013 – May 2013

Eishun thinks he’s pretty lucky when his busty childhood friend Kiriha becomes his personal maid. However, Kiriha is outwardly hostile towards Eishun. She abuses him, both verbally and physically, so he, in turn, acts cold towards her (despite loving her). However, the dynamic of their relationship completely changes when Kiriha catches Eishun in the act of masturbating to pictures of her in her maid outfit.

Discovering that Eishun has a genuine physical attraction for her, Kiriha decides to give in to her own personal feelings and reward her master with numerous sexual encounters. Things start off pretty tame in episode 1, but that all changes in episode 2. Let’s just say that things get hot and steamy in the shower…and it’s not from the water.


6. Katsuragi Sara from Zettai Junshu Kyousei Kozukuri Kyokashou!!

  • Episodes: 2
  • Aired: Dec 2012 - Jun 2013

Zettai Junshu Kyousei Kozukuri Kyokashou has quite the striking art style. The hentai is drawn with a lot of angular lines; the characters have triangle faces, long eyebrows, and an unusual lack of curves. The setup for this hentai’s “plot” is a little weird too. In the future, male birth rates become exponentially rare. As a result, the human race faces extinction. In order to combat this threat, boys are given a “Free Sex Licence” upon reaching sexual maturity, which can be presented to any women of the boy’s choosing as many times as they wish. Any woman who is presented with a Free Sex Licence must have sex with the male who presented it without question, in order to reproduce and continue the survival of the human race.

The main character of Zettai Junshu Kyousei Kozukuri Kyokashou gets plenty of chances to use his Licence on several different girls across both episodes. The best sex scenes are with his classmate, Katsuragi Sara, an arrogant know-it-all and stereotypical tsundere. Although she initially claims to be a superior being who couldn’t care less for the protagonist, Sara’s actions by the end of the hentai, paint a very different picture. It’s revealed she genuinely enjoys having unprotected sex with him. Eventually, she doesn’t even need to see the card and willingly participates in deviant acts within the halls of the school.


5. Kanzaki-kun from Itadaki! Seieki

  • Episodes: 1
  • Aired: Mar. 2014

Itadaki! Seieki follows the relationship of Kanzaki-kun and his new girlfriend: a vampire succubus hybrid. Unable to gain sufficient nourishment from regular food, Kanzaki’s girlfriend must rely on drinking bodily fluids to survive. However, despite her vampire nature, she’s afraid of blood. And although sweat is a viable resource, it’s not the best when it comes to taste. I guess Kanzaki has no choice but to feed his starving classmate with the one bodily fluid that’s left.

Despite Kanzaki’s indifferent outward appearance, he does really care about his monster girl classmate. He even worries about how she sees him, and tries to break up with her when he begins to believe he’s little more than food in her eyes. Of course, his new girlfriend is having none of that, and with a little prodding (and succubus foreplay where she magically switches up her body type from curvy to cat girl and everything in between), she’s able to get Kanzaki-kun to open up and express his true feelings.


4. Takita-san from Anoko to Iikoto

  • Episodes: 2
  • Aired: Oct. 2015

Anoko to Iikoto is a pair of episodes that focus on two sets of characters. The first follows a couple of high school students, while the second focuses on two siblings who lose their virginity to each other. The first episode is way better than the second, and a large part of that enjoyment comes from the main girl, Takita-san, who just so happens to be a tsundere. Takita-san is one of the most popular girls in school. The source of her positive reception is clear: she has huge boobs. Unfortunately, she’s not much of a talker and acts quite standoffish to those around her. However, when one of her classmates comments that her boobs “look weird,” she calls him out to meet her alone after school.

In some other hentai, this would probably be the moment where the woman “punished” the man for his insults. However, instead of enacting any sort of sexual vengeance, Takita-san reveals that she’s actually flat and just poorly pads her boobs. Secretly, Takita-san is a very shy girl who craves the attention and affections of someone who will love her for her. She struggles to convey her feelings, so she hides behind an icy façade and sex appeal so she doesn’t have to open up to anyone. Classic tsundere.

Takita-san’s classmate promises to keep her secret. Not wanting to lose the first genuine connection she’s made all year, Takita-san quickly declares that she’ll use her meager assets to give him a boob job. Just as quickly, she remarks that it’s not because she’s attracted to him. She just needs insurance to ensure he won’t talk. Baka. Thus begins their new life: Takita-san meets her classmate (who she claims is not her boyfriend, but kind of definitely is) after school every day to give him a boob job.


3. Chinatsu from First Love

  • Episodes: 3
  • Aired: Mar. 2012

First Love follows the growing relationship between three different couples. First Love: Kasumi follows Kasumi, a young woman who’s become a shut-in. But after her brother’s girlfriend cancels on him, Kasumi joins her brother on an expensive date to a fancy restaurant. From there, the two grow much closer. First Love: Makoto follows Kouichi, who’s expecting a visit from his tomboy cousin Makoto. However, when she arrives, he discovers she’s abandoned her boyish habits and slim figure. Instead, she’s adopted a more ladylike personality and grown into a curvaceous woman.

However, the best episode of the trio is episode 2: First Love: Chinatsu. A very vanilla hentai, First Love: Chinatsu follows Satoshi and his girlfriend Chinatsu. The two are very close, but Chinatsu is your classic tsundere who can’t stop herself from acting seemingly annoyed at Satoshi’s personality and actions. The episode focuses on Satoshi’s efforts to better understand the Chinatsu beneath the hostile exterior, as well as the sex that follows the two’s reaffirmation of love for one another. All three of these episodes are probably the closest you’ll ever get to decent storytelling in your hentai, but that just makes them all really fun to watch. Who says your body AND your heart shouldn’t be stimulated?


2. Glory Hole Sister from Imouto Bitch ni Shiboraretai

  • Episodes: 2
  • Aired: Oct. 2017

It’s hard to give top ranking to a character that doesn’t even have a name. Otherwise, this sexy tsundere would be getting the number one spot! Imouto Bitch ni Shiboraretai splits its two episodes between two couples. In both cases, the couples are siblings. The first couple are a brother and sister who get drunk during a King’s Game and start engaging in incest. The second couple follows the sexual misadventures of a sister and brother who sleep in adjacent rooms. The younger sister has a major crush on her brother, so she carves a glory hole in the wall between them so that he can watch her masturbate. Eventually, the hole starts being used for…stuff that siblings probably shouldn’t do with one another.

The second episode of this hentai checks a lot of boxes: ahegao, big boobs, blow job, boob job, creampie, incest, school girl, masturbation…and that’s just the first five minutes. The checkbox we’re looking for, tsundere, doesn’t rear its head until near the end of this delightful 16 minute romp. Apparently, younger sister has had the hots for her big bro for a VERY long time. She’s just been acting like a huge jerk around him the past few years because she’s too embarrassed to admit it. The glory hole lets her be with her brother sexually without the actual shame of having to admit her feelings directly to his face.


1. Katakura Kon from Furueru Kuchibiru (Fuzzy Lips)

  • Episodes: 1
  • Aired: Apr. 2014

Fuzzy Lips is the closest anime on this list to being considered somewhat of a classic. For lack of a better term, this hentai is famous. A large part of its appeal comes from Fuzzy Lips’ characters, specifically the main girl who’s a tsundere. Though this anime is clearly a hentai, its story is written in a way that it can both sexually excite and probe deeper conversations between unhealthy relationships. For those who have seen Fuzzy Lips, it should come as no surprise that this hentai, and its main character, are coming in first place on this list.

The story follows a high school student named Katakura Kon, who’s having a forbidden, secret relationship with her homeroom teacher. Kon rarely seems to care about anything. She skips classes and lives with her adult lover. However, her standoffishness is simply a side effect of her youthful naïveté and inability to express her feelings. She does care about her teacher, and understands that what they are doing together is ultimately very wrong. Her frustration over her situation spills over into her sex life, and the moments between her and her teacher are some of the steamiest sex scenes you’ll ever see in a hentai. It almost seems unfair to call Kon a tsundere. Though she does fit the archetype, her character is very much written to fit in line with the hentai’s surprisingly good plot, not to fulfill a specific kink.


Final Thoughts

You can’t fault a hentai for having a bad story. After all, hentai aren’t supposed to tell a good tale. However, incorporating a tsundere into a hentai is an easy way to throw in some cheap character development. The archetype also allows a hentai to showcase two different sex scenes within one episode: an initial slow affair with a seemingly unwilling partner that’s followed by a hot and heavy romp with a partner who wanted it all along. It’s a winning combination, and that’s why we love it.
Are there any other well-written tsunderes in hentai that you think we missed? When it comes to hentai, who’s your favorite tsundere? We’d love to hear from you!
