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 *
Bleach Ending Theme 2: "Thank You!!" by Home Made Kazoku
I really like the 2nd ending theme to Bleach. It's very upbeat, and the lyrics are touching. I've moved some screencaps from Ep 14 to this post. Get the TV size version at Keiichi Anime Forever. Here's my translation of the lyrics...
Itsumo sasaete kureru hitotachi ni
Higorono omoi wo kometa rhapsody...
Appreciation no kimochi wo todoke
Itsumo arigato, honto arigato
Tatoe doko ni tatte kimi no sonzai ni
Kansha shiteru yo
Tasogare no machi ga akaku somaru koro
Hitono mure ga masu gogo, 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...
To 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
Whereever 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...
