Dandere is another Japanese loanword that we use in English. Again, this word is comprised of two different Japanese words. The “dan” part comes from “danmari” meaning silent or taciturn (they don’t talk), and the “dere” comes from “deredere” meaning to become lovey dovey. There is a slight difference from kuudere but it’s not major.
So wait…. Then what’s the difference between a kuudere and a dandere?
