Dōjinshi (同人誌, often transliterated as doujinshi) are self-published Japanese works, usually magazines, manga or novels. They are often the work of amateurs, though some professional artists participate as a way to publish material outside the regular industry. The term dōjinshi is derived from dōjin (同人, literally "same person", used to refer to a person or persons with whom one shares a common goal or interest) and shi (誌, a suffix generally meaning "periodical publication"). Dōjinshi are part of a wider category of dōjin including, but not limited to, art collections, anime, hentai and games. Groups of dōjinshi artists refer to themselves as a sākuru (サークル, circle). A number of such groups actually consist of a single artist: they are sometimes called kojin sākuru (個人サークル, personal circles).

Otoko no Ko

Crossdressing boy

Though the normal usage "otoko no ko" is a young boy (child age), "Otoko no Ko" works because of the dual means that are allowed in kanji. Rather than explain in detail, I'll explain it with diagrams:


So it's simple as changing the "ko" from "child" to a "Ko" to a kanji that means "girl"

Can't figure out a good way to do this in English, so I'll just make the "ko" capitalized to "Ko" to make it distinct. If there's another method that works better, please provide an amendment.


Sample usage:

Kinoshita Hideyoshi from "Baka Test" and Bridget from "GUILTY GEAR" series are great examples of an Otoko no Ko.

Otaku Boom

Associated with Seichi Junrei (pilgrimage). It denotes instances where other Japanese industry sectors received economic boosts following the otaku's involvement in their business. For example, otaku visiting the Washinomiya Shrine featured in Lucky Star boosted the local economy. Some companies and interests outside of the otaku industry are starting to take advantage of this phenomenon. As a result, anime featuring real-life scenery are now more common than ever.

Great thread here

I just wanted to add that Otoko no Ko is not synonymous with she-males/ transvestites, and are not necessarily homosexual.
They simply cross dress.

Here is a cafe like maid cafes, only they are all Otoko no Kos

The prestigious award for the first definition goes to...

Tsundere

"tsundere," is a term used to describe girls that are cold and strict at first or in public, but becomes all lovey-dovey when they are alone together.

Some examples of tsundere characters:
Hinagiku and Nagi (Hayate no Gotoku)
Sawachika Eri (School Rumble)
Kagurazaka Asuna (Mahou Sensei Negima!)
Hasegawa Chisame (Mahou Sensei Negima!)
Evangeline A.K. McDowell (Mahou Sensei Negima!)
Daikuuji Ayu (Kimi ga Nozomu Eien)
Nanase Rumi (ONE)
Tohsaka Rin (Fate/stay night)
Tohno Akiha (Tsukihime)
Practically everyone (Tsuyokiss)
etc. etc....

Visual example:





[I-know-it's-bad] Usage example:

My childhood friend has blonde, twin-tail hair. She is the epitome of a tsundere.
There's a error. Tsunderes also apply to males, who appeared at first cold then loyal characters. So, female equivalent of tsundere is tsunderekko.

kj1980 is japanese (I think, If I'm wrong do tell me) and probably has a much better understanding in how the term is used than you have. Also while males can be referred to as tsunderes they usually aren't. kj1980 made his post back in 2006, I have never seen a male character been referred to as a tsundere earlier than the recent years.

I'm really tired right now. So I think my grammar may sound a little weird. Will fix it later.
