Mayadere describes a character that starts off as an antagonist trying to kill someone (usually main character) but falls in love / befriends with them instead which causes them to switch sides.
However, the character is still unpredictable to everyone, including the love interest. This character often makes jokes about killing him every once in a while.
An example of this type of character is Golden Darkness from the series “To Love-ru”. She has long blond hair, dark red eyes and a child-like figure which she prefers as it is more comfortable in whilst fighting.
She is an assassin from a different planet who is given the task to assassinate male protagonist, Rito Yuuki. She ends up switching sides instead, defending Rito from others who are after him. She would also make jokes about killing him once in a while which adds to her un-predictableness.For access to whole library of anime and manga visit Crunchyroll and sign up for their premium membership today!
