TOP 5 MOST POPULAR TSUNDERE IN ANIME
"RIN TOHSAKA"
(FATE /STAY NIGHT)

Rin Tohsaka is a model student and idol of ShirĊ's school and is secretly a Magus, and a Master in the Fifth Holy Grail War. Rin is a perceptive, serious, resourceful and very competitive person. Though she is widely-admired at school as an honor student, it is a front she puts up in order to prevent others from prying into her life. In private, she is notably stingy and bossy, but usually means well for those she cares about (a personality possesssed by most tsundere) Her perfect and coldhearted personality is probably taken from her father who was also a magus. It was later revealed too that Rin eventually fall in love with Shiro (one of the main character in the series) 




TOP 4 MOST POPULAR TSUNDERE IN ANIME
"HITAGI SENJOUGAHARA"
(BAKEMONOGATARI)
Hitagi Senjougahara is the main female character of the Bakemonogatari. She is considered to be a frail-looking girl with an "incurable disease" and is distant towards others. She has a glamorous figure, although she is also considered as a "frail" girl due to her lack of participation in school activities. Hitagi possesses a sharp tongue and can be blunt while still maintaining a straight face when speaking to others. This trait of hers makes interacting with her a challenging task, if not impossible. In spite of this, she is sincere in everything that she says. Interestingly, She actually calls herself a tsundere and probably has some idea about otaku culture. 



TOP 3 MOST POPULAR TSUNDERE IN ANIME
"MISAKA MIKOTO"
(TAORU MAJUTSU NO INDEX / TOARU KAGAKU NO RAILGUN)
Misaka is a side character in Toaru Majutsu no Index and the main character of Toaru Kagaku no Railgun. She is shown to have a complex regarding her chest, feeling inferior when compared to girls with bigger bust sizes. To most people, she is considered a 'proper lady' but in reality, she's short-tempered, prideful, and has an improper attitude with some slight tomboyish tendencies and insecurities, a fact few people know of. Despite this, she is generally friendly and easygoing. Often times she shows an incredibly childish, selfish, competitive side and even slight tsundere tendencies along with confused affections when taunted by her rival, Touma. To add to this, childishness, she has an inclination towards cute things, most specifically, Gekota and Kirugumar merchandise. She also likes frog merchandise only if it features Gekota. When she realizes that a stuffed animal another person is carrying is just a regular frog, she immediately loses all of her interest in the stuffed animal. A perfect classification of a tsundere personality indeed! 



TOP 2 MOST POPULAR TSUNDERE IN ANIME
"SHANA"
(SHAKUGAN NO SHANA)
Shana is the main female character in Shakugan No Shana series. She is a Flame Haze, usually referred to by her title "Flame-Haired Burning-Eyed Hunter". Initially, she is concentrated solely on her duty as a Flame Haze, not even considering getting a name as she didn't see any importance in having it. She sees Yuji only as a Torch, an object, albeit marginally interesting because of his status as a Mystes. However, she slowly opens up to Yuji, coming to think of him as a person despite being a Torch, and eventually comes to show affection to him.Shana has a habit of saying "Urusai! Urusai! Urusai!" ("Shut up! Shut up! Shut up!") whenever Yuji asks her questions or makes remarks that disturb her original worldview or embarrass her but in reality, they really care for each other. She has a great fondness for anything sweet, although melon bread is her favorite.


THE MOST POPULAR TSUNDERE IN ANIME
"TAIGA AISAKA"
(TORA DORA)
If there is one perfect example of tsundere in the universe of anime, Taiga Aisaka is definitely the one! Taiga is one of the protagonists of Tora Dora and is personally my favorite character (Tora Dora is such a great anime with a very impressive plot) She has a well-regulated and beautiful appearance though is unable to make much company with others. Due to often snapping at others in brutal ways and her short stature, she is given the nickname "Palmtop Tiger". Her under-developed body and the added nickname has given her a complex which in turn serves to give her a negative attitude and facial expression. Taiga gets upset easily and is considerably clumsy, most likely to overcompensation issues from having felt unloved and unimportant in her childhood. But she has a very strong tendency towards righteousness and her unfortunately-violent outbursts are usually well-motivated. She can be very nice when she wants to be, but can triumph all. She has snappy, quick comebacks. Her classmates consider her to be very pretty and she often gets confessions by boys her age, but she has turned down every one of them. In spite of this very strong personality, he has a soft side and loves Kitamura as well..  

*******
Other notable Tsuderes include Asuka Langley (Evangelion), Rukia Kuchiki (Bleach), Makise Kurisu (Steins : gate), Eri Sawachika (School Rumble), Louisse (Zero no Tsukaima) and Ana Kyoyama (Shaman King)

TOP FIVE GREATEST ENEMIES OF GODZILLA

After featuring the popular giant monsters in movies (see TOP FIVE MOST POPULAR GIANT MONSTERS IN MOVIES ), we are going to focus more on Godzilla and his notable foes. Godzilla himself is considered as a villain at some point considering that he is a major threat for humans. However, Godzilla is not the only living Kaiju in his universe and ever since the character was created way back in 1954, several monsters have appeared either to destroy him or to team up with him for some reason. Listed below are five of my personal favorite kaijus (giant monsters) who fought up against our iconic giant.

TOP FIVE GREATEST ENEMIES OF GODZILLA
 photo godzille_zps87f9a59f.jpg
Author's Note : This entry is listed subjectively. I based it on my own opinion. Godzilla have fought several monsters ever since the character was created but the list below are based on those films and videos that I have watched personally. Hope you enjoy it. 

TOP 5 GREATEST ENEMY OF GODZILLA
"RODAN"
I first saw Rodan in the 2004 all star kaiju movie where he is being used as a weapon for destruction. Rodan is basically depicted as a giant pteranodon. Interestingly, before he became a villian in this twenty-eighth installment Rodan was first introduced as Godzilla's greatest battle companion. The monster was first introduced in a 1956 film entitled Rodan. In 1964 film "Ghidorah, the Three Headed Monsters" , Rodan helped Godzilla and Mothra to defeat the King Ghidorah.  Despite of this, Rodan is still considered as a dangerous monsters who wreck havoc to the planet. As far as the Rodan's abilities are concerned, Rodan has the ability to play and possesses an impressive speed and agility. He can also use powerful winds by flapping his wings, emits a radioactive heat beams and more. 

 TOP 4 GREATEST ENEMY OF GODZILLA
"BIOLLANTE"

Biollante is a female monster who first appeared in Godzilla Vs Biollante in 1989. She is actually depicted as a rose monster who came to existence as a result of an experiment (they fused Godzilla's DNA with a rose which mutated into a gigantic and powerful monster. I personally see her as one of the coolest villains of Godzilla and she also have the greatest backstory compare to other kaijus. Biollante, in her rose form, can constrict and grapple with an enemy with her many tendrils and mouthed vines, each of which are capable of spitting a highly corrosive sap that can blind an opponent. Biollante has two forms and the second one is by far the strongest. She also sports extremely enhanced regeneration capabilities. Unfortunately, unlike other monsters, Biollante never appeared in any films other than this one.


TOP 3 GREATEST ENEMY OF GODZILLA
"MOTHRA"
I believed that the name of this monster is clear enough to classify where she came from. Mothra is one of the most notable kaijus in Godzilla universe who appeared in every Godzilla era. Mothra is first introduced in a self titled film in 1961. Just like a typical moth, Mothra has appeared in various forms pertaining to a moth's life cycle. Mothra has proven a formidable adversary in combat: in larval form she may use her silken spray to wrap and immobilize an opponent. In addition to that, Mothra is considered as one of the most powerful psychics monster too. Mothra has become one of Godzilla's most challenging opponents, having achieved the greatest success rate in battle. She has once overcome Godzilla in imago form, and twice Godzilla has fought her to her death only later to be bested by her newborn larvae. 


TOP 2 GREATEST ENEMY OF GODZILLA
"MECHAGODZILLA"
A robot made to fight Godzilla! Generally, there are three MechaGodzilla made in the history of Toho Universe including the MechaGodzilla 1, Mechagodzilla 2 and Kiryu (MechaGodzilla 3). Among the three , Kiryu is considerably sleeker than other versions of MechaGodzilla and bears a closer resemblance to Godzilla than the previous versions. Kiryu is a well balanced machine and the most agile MechaGodzilla to date, moving with a fluid, almost organic grace. Its armament includes oral maser cannons, dual laser cannons on each arm, and a flight pack that contains two forward firing rocket launchers and four batteries along its back and sides for launching guided missiles.Kiryu's most devastating weapon is the Absolute Zero Cannon, (a weapon also utilized by the Gotengo.) Stored in its chest behind a trio of folding panels, the Absolute Zero Cannon fires a ball of energy that flash freezes its target, thereby causing it to disintegrate under the weight of its own mass. 


THE GREATEST ENEMY OF GODZILLA
"KING GHIDORAH"


Ghidorah is dubbed as the most powerful monster in Godzilla franchise. He is often considered Godzilla's archenemy. Usually, King Ghidorah is so destructive and powerful, that Godzilla is often required to team-up with another monster, even several monsters, before engaging the three-headed dragon of terror and destruction in battle. Ghidorah is also one of the monsters that are most often mind controlled; it acts completely autonomously in three movies, in other appearances being controlled for most of its screen time by aliens. King Ghidorah can fly at great speed, can fire gravity beams, create hurricans, generate magnetic fields and more. He is a powerful monster indeed and also my personal favorite ^_^

****
Other powerful monsters include Hedorah (image above), Anguirus, Gigan, Destoroyah, and Battra.
