Tsundere is a slang born on the Internet, and it is a word to describe the nature of female anime or game characters. Tsundere is a word combining two words, "Tsun Tsun" and "Dere Dere". Both terms describe attitudes of a person. "Tsun Tsun" is used for cold/blunt/curt attitude, while "Dere Dere" is used when a person becomes spoony in front of his/her lover.
(Definition is from the game " Tsuyokisu Cool×Sweet ")
Therefore, "Tsundere" is a female character who is usually cold, but she becomes spoony on her lover. Or, she is cold to the main character at first, but she becomes lovestruck later.

1: being on the surface sharp and sarcastic (tsuntsun) but underneath lovestruck and fawning (deredere); characteristic of a gap between acted out actions and feelings in mind;
2: normally being sharp but at some prompt suddenly becoming lovestruck; hot-cold personality type

Japanese slang for one who is not nice and gets pissed off easily on the outside, but deep in the inside, is nice, caring, and gentle at all costs to the main character. It is usually used in anime/manga. The tsundere character usually shows his/her tsundere-ness in the later episodes/volumes/chapters.
Kagami Hirragi from the anime/manga Lucky Star is a great example of tsundere.

When a person acts cold towards another before gradually warming up to that person or person who acts cruel to the ones they love also called a lovehate relationship
I think your bully is a tsundere, I mean he totally has a crush on you.

Tsundere ist jemand der sich nicht eingestehen kann/will, das er den anderen mag, und sein Temperament als Schutz benutzt, so eine Form Hass-Liebe (hier äußerst sich das Temperament dann gern angriffslustig), auch oberflächlich abweisend. Nicht selten

Ursprung: TsunDere ist ein Slang der hauptsächlich in Animes seine Wurzeln findet. Weiterführend ist der Ursprung in den weiblichen Charakteren zu finden.

Wortzusammensetzung: ..aus "Tsun Tsun" und "Dere Dere".
Beides wörter die (Gefühls-)Haltungen beschreiben. "Tsun Tsun" steht für kalt/barsch/brüsk/schroff/grob, während "Dere Dere" benutzt wird, wenn eine Person "spoony"* wird in gegenwart ihres Geliebten.

(* "spoony"kann man eigentlich nicht übersetzen; eine Mischung aus: liebes-verrückt, liebes-taumel, verlegenheit, verknallt sein..)
TsunDere Beispielcharaktere :
-Kurisu Makise aus Steins;Gate
-Luise aus "Zero no Tsukaima"
-Shana aus "Shakugan no Shana"
-Taiga, Rin, Haruhi...
