Not sure about Urban Dictionary, but wikipedia likely has something on the subject.

Heck, I won't be surprised if there's a freaking academic paper written about it already.

This good?

Besides, I really do think she is a tsundere. Maybe not a level 5, like the ones Kugimiya Rie voices, but... Maybe a level 4? Besides, she goes tsun tsun when she hits him, and dere dere at the end.

She didn't really go all tsun tsun when she hit him. Only time was the when Jun brought up what he thought about meeting at the flowerbeds but even then I would think any girl would be somewhat embarrassed about such a thing. Bag swinging I'd say was a normal reaction.
Karou as she is atm wasn't being dishonest about her feelings about Jun simply cause she doesn't know what they really are.
Wasn't till the end of the ep that she notices she might like/really likes Jun.

No that's not what you call as tsundere... its a normal act between friends with long history of relationship between them. Kaoru is just a normal girl.. she is not a tsundere, and she won't even become one. If there's a girl that has the potential to become a tsundere, that probably would be Ai.

Its easier to know if the girl has a trait to become a tsundere or not... here's one good tips for ya from the god of galges.

Not much else to add really. Kaoru's a normal girl, and I've met many like her. People need to stop using tsundere for everything, it's getting really ambiguous now.

Tsundere:
A person that starts off "tsun tsun" for someone, and eventually ends up "dere dere" for him/her.
(Credits go to Minoru from Lucky Star)

That leaves us with just Eriko being a tsundere (and not certainly) in the whole Enterbrain galge universe.

A tsundere will refuse to talk to you in the hall, but start to secretly hope you'll continue trying to talk to engage her in conversation. She'll start thinking about you all the time when she's at home. When she finally breaks down and goes out with you, she'll be at a complete loss when it comes to romance and will come to depend on you totally.
Hmm. If that's the definition we are using then I'm just gonna say no. She was never -Tsun to begin with. Normal girl = normal reactions.
sexhair

Another example. Source in the hyperlink.
Hmph. Stupid wiki. I am not editing you b-because I like you or anything. (blush) S-so don't get the wrong idea. Got that?

Kaoru isn't a tsundere, which is true. Perhaps later episodes will show otherwise, but I don't think so. Ai on the other hand, is possibly a kuudere... but I'm not so sure either.

All in all, there has been no one in the series so far—male or female—that can labelled as a tsundere.

Karou is not a tsundere nor will she become one. Karou is neither cold nor hostile she is a affectionate in a playful way childhood friend who kind of realizes that she "might" have feelings for her childhood friend but is not really sure what those feelings are.

definition courtesy of wiki im actually amazed this discussion is going on.

character development process which describes a person who is initially cold and even hostile towards another person before gradually showing their warm side over time. The word is derived from the terms Tsun Tsun (ツンツン?) , meaning to turn away in disgust, and Dere Dere (デレデレ?) meaning to become 'lovey dovey

This is a short definition but many other personaliy traits can be linked to being a Tsudere. Karou is just a normal girl.

Keep in mind that Kaoru isn't the childhood friend. They met in middle school.

Say.... Kaoru is a girl. She's his friend. It can't get any simpler or more complicated than that...

Just a really nice girl to have as a friend.

By the way, she was waiting in the infirmary, right? What was she doing during this time? She wasn't waiting by Juni's side, so... I say she was playing with Haruka as she lay helplessly asleep

Alright, alright; so she isn't a tsundere. But she's kinda in denial with her feelings, which I think is cute.

Being in a denial of ones feeling and using violence to cover that (or the jealousy) is a very tsundere trait.

And sinestra or coolasj19 check your tsundere definition again. The girl do not have to be hostile all the time just short sparks of situations are good enough - like when you are shy, jealous etc. And thats what Kaoru displayed. You may say but thats not really hostility but again how you define the hostility?

Do you seriously think that Louise (one of most famous tsundere's) really is hostile towards Saito in a sense to actually kill him? None of tsundere's actually are they are just using the aloof mask or any other mask to cover themselves and thats what Kaoru does it in here. So I do think that she posses some of Tsundere Type B traits despite your stubborn denial.

coolasj19, you gave a good examole of type A tsundere and obviously koaru is not that but remember that there are other types as well not just Type A.

Random observations:
Actually.... in ep 5, Kaoru reminds me of Ritsu in K-On! ... good-natured, rowdy, quick to flash from emotion to emotion. I'm enjoying this character more I think.

And um, baka-ichi needs to stop having his fantasies Out Loud and use his "thinking thoughts" more ....

Its kind of interesting watching the "choice-points" with the other girls go glancing by in the breeze.

There's young woman in a local taiko group in my city who has hair like Kaoru... she's very exuberant in performances, quite fun to watch.

Right, the OP makes me gag, "You Light Up My Life" in a bad way. I'm a sucker for romance but (cringe). The EDs are better.
