    I have to say I appreciate Japan’s urge to cover their bases, character archetype wise. I also really like Yanderes, for whatever reason. Kaede’s freakout (and Asa, for totally different reasons) was the highlight of Shuffle. I was laughing from beginning to end of her insaneness and pretty much inexplicable recover.The empty saucepan was one of the highpoints of unintentional comedy in anime for me. I hope there is a long and successful future ahead for Yaminabe party.

    I think on the whole scale of Yandere (which is to say, I’m barely familiar with it, but I figure something like this would be pretty high up there) Ms. Fuyou wouldn’t rank too high. I think (as in not entirely sure) that her attacking Asa is simply an anime-only development, and no such thing occurs in the game.
    This isn’t to say I don’t like yandere, because I am partial to the idea. I just feel my Kaede isn’t a very good example. She’s more a doormat along the lines of Belldandy.

    Actually, Kaede’s doormat status is what I found fascinating about her breakdown in the anime. It seemed like the creators were implying (unintentionally, I’m sure)that the only sort of woman who would devote herself so fully to another as Kaede does would be kind of, well, crazy. Of course, the similar doormat status of the other Shuffle girls kind of dilutes any sort of meaning one might wish to draw out. Still, I thought the juxtaposition of a sort of male ideal and obvious mental illness kind of interesting.
    I’d also really like to find out what motivated the addition of Kaede’s psychosis to the anime. I had heard that she was basically Belldandy lite in the game, so I’m curious as to what gave the animators the idea to make her crazy. I imagine it went something like this: “Hmmm… we have three pretty similar characters here… What the hell, let’s make one go nuts and call it a day”.
