:::Tsundere Spotlight:::

Hey everyone! This TSL goes to Misaka Mikoto from Toaru Majutsu no Index & its sister anime, Toaru Kagaku no Railgun!

Time for a little background of Misaka!

So Toaru Majutsu no Index is where Misaka first stars (before moving into the sister anime counterpart). In this anime Misaka is an electromaster who trained very hard to go from a Level 1 ESPer to the highest rank of Level 5. There are seven Level 5 ESPers in Academy City and she's ranked the third strongest and nicknamed the "Railgun" (hence the sister anime's title).

When she meets the main character, Touma, who has the ability to cancel any ESP or magic ability with his right hand--she is humiliated that a mere Level 0 ESPer can stand up to her. And that's where her one-sided rivalry originates from. Throughout the anime she tries to rematch Touma who refuses to fight her.

She eventually develops a soft spot for him <3

(*cough* Misaka & Touma > Index & Touma *cough*).

Sort-of-a-Spoiler Pic

Misaka attends a very rich and elite school which leads people to think she's a "proper lady" but in reality she's a short-tempered tomboy who secretly likes cute and childish things such as flowery pajamas. And despite what she claims, she has a very strong sense of justice and won't let anything unjust go by without Judgment! That's where you can see Misaka in action =P.

Okay, enough background--onto the Tsundere analysis!

Misaka has very cute character design, especially when portrayed in the completely awesome, action & moe-filled duo of Kuroko and Misaka! (See snapshots). She has a very cute voice as well, voiced by Rina Satou (who also voices Haruka from Minami-Ke! and Shiina from Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu to name a few).

Her Tsundere type is very unique and appears very rarely in any anime I've seen. I like to classify her as a perfect definition of my name: Deretsun! Contrary to normal Tsundere characters who usually act tsuntsun and eventually or randomly become deredere, Misaka is usually deredere and has sparks of tsuntsun when necessary.

So if you'd like to see the cute Misaka in action, check out Toaru Majutsu no Index (the second half) and the pure moe form (Index-less): Toaru Kagaku no Railgun!

(Note/Disclaimer: I am against Index (the character) completely, and I hate the first half of Toaru Majutsu no Index because she's in it. So don't complain if you feel the same way when watching it =P.)

Time for some...

Tsundere & Moe Snapshots!

Stay tuned for next time!

That's all for today, thanks for reading! ^^

Oh, and two parting pictures =P.

(Woah! Where did that last one come from? Is that Shana? :o)

Welcome to
The Otaku Reviewers

This blog, "The Otaku Reviewers", was started in February of 2010 on this very same platform, Blogger. At first, it was a venture into the informational and informal world of comics, anime, video games, and Japanese culture. In other words, just a random blog.

Over time, the founder of the blog credited with the pseudonym "RPGhero" was joined by two fellow bloggers and friends with the names "Chansu" and "Deretsun". Together the three bloggers looked up interesting Japanese culture facts, recommended new anime, talked about their own "otaku" interests, and traveled across the United States to various anime conventions.

There have been off periods when the blog ceased production of content and there have been times when there would be dozens of blog posts per week. The schedule varies depending on the lives of the people behind the alias'. However the pattern is that we always get back into the game with even newer information about Japanese culture, anime, video games, and other nerdy hobbies.

The motto of our blog is:
"A cure for your apathy and an inspiration for your dreams. ...Applies to Otaku, anime fans, J-pop junkies, and the like"

The purpose is to blog about cool stuff related solely to anime and otaku stuff. There's no other reason we're doing this.

If you like our blog, please support us in however small a way that you would like. We appreciate our readers!
