what's in a name?

This is where I feature a character from an anime and explain their name meanings. If you'd like to request a name meaning, let me know! ^_^

Name: Yukimura Seiichi
Anime: Prince of Tennis


Yukimura is a wonderful character that has lots of potential... His name is quite fitting to his character as well. "Yuki" is the kanji for peace or happiness, and "mura" means village. I think this reflects the serenity of his nature very well.

The more interesting part about his name is the fact that it stems from the historic Japanese war hero, Sanada Yukimura. A brilliant tactician and expert in the art of war, he almost led a successful campaign against the then-shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu. He is ultimately betrayed and meets a tragic end. I think it's interesting indeed, that the powerhouse tennis team Rikkaidai's Captain (Yukimura) and Vice Captain (Sanada) are named after this true life hero.

"Sei" means soul or life force. This of course, speaks to Yukimura's passionate feelings toward tennis, and his incredible will to overcome his suffering to become greater than he is. Ichi is a common ending for a boy's name.

* Bleach 2nd ED Theme (Full) *

Bleach 2nd ED Theme: "Thank You" by Home Made Kazoku
(Full Version!)

EDIT (Feb. 18, 2005):

Thank you to Kami5909 for corrections! But sorry, I'm still leaving in "girlfriend" as opposed to "lover"...I guess it's a matter of taste. I just never liked the sound of "lover", in any context. ^_^;;;

By the way, I have seen these lyrics posted on other sites. You know, I don't mind if you do, but please don't forget to give me credit. Much appreciated....

Here it is, as promised, the lyrics to the FULL version of the new Bleach ending theme, "Thank You" by Home Made Kazoku. Apologies if any of the lyrics are off, though I think I got most all of it. It's hard enough to catch all rap lyrics when they're in English...lol. Anyways, a shout out to Paul for getting me the file. Note on the translation: there's a part where in Japanese, it literally says "I want to hold my stomach and laugh..." which I changed to something like "throw my head back and laugh." I just thought it sounded better. It's one of those things that make sense in Japanese, but not in English. Oh, and I couldn't figure out for the life of me what they say right before "I will be there" (near the end), so I left it out. ^_^;;;

Japanese lyrics followed by my translation...


Itsumo sasaete kureru hitotachi ni
Higorono omoi wo kometa rhapsody...
Appreciation no kimochi wo todoke
Itsumo arigato, honto arigato
Tatoe doko ni itatte kimi no sonzai ni
Kansha shiteru yo

Tasogare no machi ga akaku somaru koro
Nanigenaku michi wo aruiteita
Ikikau hitono mure ga masu gogo,
Nantonaku tachidomatte mita
Potsuri to aita kokoro no sukima
Umeruyou ni ugoita keitai no manner
Kimi wa hitori ja nai, hora mina
Tagai ni sasae atteku no sa...

One day now
Mirai ga kowakute
Nayandeita boku ni mukatte
Nanimo yuwazu ni sotto
Te wo sashinobete kureru kimi ga ita
Kanashimi ga hanbun ni natta
Yorokobi wa nibai ni fukuranda
Gyaku no tachiba ni nattara
Sugusama soba made ni kaketsukeru to chikatta


Far away, far away tooku hanarete itemo
Nagareru toki no nakade
Tomo ni sugoshita hibi no kioku wa
Kesshite kieru koto wa naino sa
Nakama ya, kazoku ya koibito
Soshite deatta subete no hitobito
Arigato...mina no okage de
Mata chikarazuyoku fumidaseru

Hito wa daremo hitoridewa ikite ikeyashinai
Tagai ga tagai wo itsumo care shiai
Rikai dekinai toki wa hanashiai
Hara kakaeru gurai warai ai tai
Nanoni naze kou toki ni kenashiai
Kizu tsukiau no teki ga shinai
Baka baka shii hodo kimi ga sukida
Terekusai kedo chotto honki da


Kitto mina igai to shy de
Men to mukatte naka naka
Kuchi ni dashite inaku te
Dakedo hontou wa iitai kuse ni
Nanika ga jamashite mina tsuyogatte
Tokini wa sarake dashite tsutaeyou
Kotoba niwa fushigi na chikara ga yadoruyo
Kantan na kotosa, jubun kara mazu hajimeyou
Kitto dekiru yo

I will be there
Just forever
Kimi ga itekureta youni


[refrain x2]


To all the people who have supported me..
This heartfelt rhapsody goes out to you
To send you my feelings of appreciation
Thank you...I really thank you
Wherever you may be,
I'm grateful for you

When the town was dyed red with twilight,
I found myself casually strolling the streets
As evening comes, more people come and go,
And I stopped for a moment
My cell phone went off, as though to fill
This gap that opened up in my heart
You are not alone, for you see
We all will support one another...

One day now
When I was feeling troubled,
And frightened of the future
You were there, though you said nothing
You softly reached out your hand to me
My sadness diminished to one-half
My happiness swelled twice over
If our places were reversed,
I promise that I will come rushing to your side


Far away, far away, no matter how far you are
Within the time that flows by
The memories of the times we spent together
Will never ever disappear
To my friends, and family, and girlfriend
And all the people I've come to know
Thank you...because of you
I can step out with confidence

Nobody can go on living just on their own
We each take care of one another
And talk it over when we misunderstand each other
I wanna throw my head back and laugh together
And yet why do we sometimes insult each other
And hurt one another
I love you so much it's almost silly
It's a little embarrassing, but I really mean it


Maybe everyone's unusually shy
And face-to-face, it's so hard
To say anything
You actually wanna say something
But something gets in the way, and you play it off
On occasion we should let it all out
For in words there resides a strange power
It's so easy, I'll start it off
We can do it

I will be there
Just forever
Just like you were there for me


[refrain x2]
