That comes from Ranma 1/2. Ranma asked Akane to wake up him up, and she did that by throwing water on him. He then said:

What the hell are ya doing!

When she left, he then thought out loud

くそー アカネの奴。 まったく可愛くねー 起こし方しやがって!
That damn Akane, waking me up in the uncutest way ever!

I know "yagaru" is an unpositive version of "morau, kureru".

Yet, I'd instead say


People said this "tte" makes the sentence more emotive. Can you guys explain this further, any give more examples of how to use it?

まったく可愛くねー 起こし方しやがっ

In colloquial speech, the te-form of a verb at the end of a sentence can express 非難 (reproach/criticism/condemnation) or 不満 (complaint/dissatisfaction).



As a side note, the て-form at the end of a sentence can also express 命令/依頼(command/request), 釈明(explanation), 感嘆(exclamation), etc.


It is merely a omitted form of some sort of longer sentence like:



し is the 連用形 of する,て can be understood as a 接続助詞。
