That's because Touma is never involved with the Science Side since Daihaseisai.

I dare all of you to find me a website or an article that doesn't include Misaka Mikoto as a main character in Index.

Thats just the thing, they portray Misaka as a main character because they know people love her, but in the actual series she doesn't act as a Main character

Mikoto has been labelled a main character since the beginning, she's a main character because she's a major recurring character, that's all there is. There's no way to know if she would become popular since the beginning.

I strongly wonder what is it that people want to prove by saying otherwise.

If you're going to cling on to some ridiculous standards, then you might as well say that Index has no main female characters and be done with it because none of the girls were ever featured as much as the male protagonists.

Going against Mikoto is like fighting the K-ON fanbase. Good luck

Well, except that I know one tsundere who DOES refer to her significant other BY NAME, and that's Minami Shimada from Baka and Test. Or a nickname at least. She refers to the main character Akihisa Yoshii as "Aki".

Another example is Nagi Sanzenin from Hayate no Gotoku, who refers to Hayate by name. But the point is, she's a younger tsundere than either Minami or Mikoto for that matter.

Misaka not mentioning Touma's name is actually a different type of tsundere if you ask me, but of course that's because of my limited knowledge of tsundere characters.
Maybe if I can get to know more prominent tsunderes like Louise from Zero no Tsukaima, then I can assess my knowledge of the tsundere character once again.

Don't forget Houki from Infinite Stratos refering to Ichika by name, but for those examples the tsundere already has an earlier connection like childhood friend.

Mikoto only know Touma for four months.

But when Hayate worked for Nagi the first time, she DOES refer to him by name.

For some reason, almost EVERYBODY refers to him by 'Hayate'.

Comparing their relationship is quite silly if I can say that. They are friends and not in a master-butler relationship or something else.

And since Kami-yan calls her by a nickname, it's nearly normal for her to not use his name and call him rudely. Still that's only my guess.

I can only say that its just biribiri being tsun and if that is not enough then the author trying to be original but fail because its still a generic tsundere feature for me. See tons of it in games.

He had said Misaka more than once though. Actually, funny thing is the only time Misaka says his name is in the PSP game

Yeah, he now calls her Misaka more than her nickname now.

But is it true? Misaka said his name in the Index PSP ?
