Why are Tsundere characters usually the main love interest?

I think most people who have seen romance/comedy/SOL/school/harem anime have observed that it's usually the Tsundere character that in the end steals the heart of the protagonist even if he wasn't into her in the first place.

I'v... See moree noticed this mostly in the popular ones. I don't want to name them as it counts as spoilers for people who haven't seen them. I'd appreciate it if others would do the same and would not spoil anime for anyone no matter how long ago it was aired.

I know that it makes for good story telling to have characters fight or dislike each other in the beginning and over time slowly become affectionate towards each other. It's easier to write about, and gives writers and characters a platform to build a story upon. It's a common trope not only in anime, but in most forms of story telling.

What I would like to know is that, is there a particular reason why this trope is so common and popular other than the reasons I mentioned above? What are your thoughts on the matter?
Do you ever just completely lose interest in/dislike romance in anime?

I used to love it when characters I liked got together in the end. Whether it was a suspenseful action series or just a simple rom-com, I loved seeing them get together. But now, I feel like I'm at a point where romance i... See mores in nearly EVERY anime, and it's become incredibly formulaic to the point where it's expected, and it's just lost all meaning and impact.

That coupled with the fact that most anime lately are arguably declining in overall quality of writing and character depth, and that the cliches regarding the romance presented are more prevalent than ever, I find myself almost rooting against any kind of romantic resolution for the characters. Because I just don't want to see something I don't like come together in the end (despite it inevitably happening every time). And it would just be different if it didn't happen from time to time.

Has anyone else felt this way?

Are you still excited about Anime?

Will you eventually lose your enthusiasm for Anime?

I remember when I first started watching Anime I could enjoy anything I mean literally anything. All I had to do was ask a random person online for recommendations and I'd watch them all and enjoy every... See more single one of them. Kaichou wa Maid-sama was one of the first Romance Anime I ever watched, I was so amazed at how the female lead Misaki acted and now I know she was what you call a Tsundere and now I'm amazed at how I was amazed at such an overused trope. I loved Nisekoi so much and now I never take harems seriously.

I am unable to get absorbed into anime lately like I used to. So how about you guys? Do you watch anime with the same enthusiasm as you did when you first started it? Or is it now just a normal routine thing?
