„Coodere“ is an anime character from the Japanese series „Tokyo Ghoul“, which is currently experiencing a huge hype on social media and in youth subcultures. Similar to „Kuudere“, „Coodere“ also stands out due to his rather cool, emotionless nature, but unlike „Kuudere“, he cannot experience an emotional outburst from one moment to the next. „Coodere“ is therefore the well-worn variant of „Kuudere“. The former is male and captivates with its anime-like look in terms of its clothing and styling. Furthermore, the latter possesses a calm, level-headed, albeit somewhat anti-social nature.
The series „Tokyo Ghoul“ and the characters in it are currently greatly admired, especially among young people. Many young people long for the character traits of the individual anime characters.

Definition of „Coodere“
„Coodere“ is a relatively new name that comes from the Japanese language and is composed of the words „coo“ or „kourudo“ (meaning „cool“ or „cold“) and „dere“ (meaning „in love“). „Coodere“ could therefore be translated roughly as „a cooler with whom one falls in love“. This refers to the characteristically rather distant, rational figure of the „Coodere“, who has an attractive appearance, but a cool nature. „Coodere“ is therefore a born leader and always looks at things rationally and soberly. It is not least these qualities that make „Coodere“ so popular among youth subcultures, who see in him not only a character, but above all an attitude to life. „Coodere“ has therefore already spread far beyond the boundaries of the „Tokyo Ghoul“ series.
