According to wiki, a Yandere (ヤンデレ) is a term used for a person who is initially loving and caring to someone they have a strong affection for until their romantic love, admiration, and devotion becomes feisty and mentally destructive in nature through either over protectiveness, violence, brutality or all three combined.
Here are my top 5 in the otome games I have played or seen so far!
Amnesia is a pretty old otome game, and I first heard of it from its anime adaptation back in 2013. I think many have heard of Toma, the famous yandere that was obsessed with the MC and even locked her in a cage in one of the ending.
It was the 1st of August.
That morning, when she awoke, the heroine found herself without any memories from
before August 1st…… Everything, from the sort of life she lived, to the relationships she had,
was a blank……
A young boy named Orion appeared in front of her, referring to himself as a “spirit.”
Under Orion’s guidance, the heroine began the struggle to regain her memories.
She searched her house for clues about her everyday life, and received a message on her phone…
What was displayed on the screen was an unknown name to her.
Now, she is asked to meet with him, a boyfriend whose name and face she doesn’t know.
In a position where who to trust is uncertain, the heroine must move in a way that her memory
loss remains undetected by her partner. Because of this, the story becomes tangled in complex ways.
With no memories of “him,” our heroine will write a new love story starting today……

An admission notice of a famous campus with all kinds of races, which was only sent to the outstanding students, comes to Cloé, who wants to know more about the outside world.
