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.

* Get! *

Archive of previous "gets!" and "wanna gets!"

Ever hear Japanese people use the term "getto" (get)? It means what it sounds like - to emphatically declare an acquisition. ^_^ Here's my archive of what I've featured under my sidebar's "latest get!" I don't buy too much anime stuff (as my funds aren't unlimited), but when I do, I'll post them here!


These aren't recent gets, but I figured I posted most of my manga collection before, so here's part 2. (I have a few more, but on a different shelf...maybe I'll post those later..) Anyways, on the top shelf, I have Glass Mask (41) and Georgie! (5). Both excellent shoujo manga. Glass Mask has recently started up as an anime, which I will probably be blogging off and on. Lady Georgie is another manga I grew up with, and I love it. But my favorite manga by this author is of course, Candy Candy. ^_^

On the second shelf is Touch (11), the best spo-kon manga. Ever. (Even better than Prince of Tennis, at least in terms of story line!) This is the most realistic and beautifully written manga I have ever come across. And by realistic, I mean in terms of how vividly the characters are written. Adachi Mitsuru is a true genius. I loved this story!

Ah...I didn't bother to take down the non-manga books for this picture. Yes, I do read stuff other than manga, lol. In fact, I used to be an avid reader, although I haven't had much time recently to read too much. (By the way, if you haven't read Da Vinci Code yet, you must. I read this book cover to cover in less than 2 days. I couldn't put it down!) Oh yeah, and Brazil by John Updike...also excellent. (And that Better Food for Dogs book is so I can make home-cooked meals for my Chihuahua, hehe... It's so much better to feed real food to your dog than the canned or dry stuff!)

This is most of my manga collection! What's new (since this IS my "latest get" section), are two extra shelves, which I just recently put up, and my Prince of Tennis series!

So I guess I'll list off what's here, from the top:

Top shelf:
1. Yugioh (1-38)
2. Yugioh Character Guide
3. Yugioh animanga
4. Glass Mask VCD's

2nd shelf:
1. Ranma 1/2 (1-38)
2. Ranma 1/2 - English version (1)
3. Short Program (by Adachi Mitsuru)

3rd shelf:
1. Inuyasha (1-37)
2. La Rose de Versaille (1-5)
3. Ouke no Monshou (1)

4th shelf:
1. Prince of Tennis (1-27)
2. Prince of Tennis fanbook (10.5, 20.5)
3. Prince of Tennis - English version (1-3)
4. Bleach - English version (1, 3)
5. Wolf's Rain - English version (1)
6. Suikoden - English version (1-4)

Prince of Tennis & Hello Kitty cell phone straps! I have a whole rack of things dangling from my cell phone, and I never tire of looking for more cute things to put on it! I swear my accessories are heavier than my phone! I actually got a whole batch of Prince of Tennis straps, but I just posted the pics for these few. My favorites are my chibi Atobe, Yuuta and Fuji straps, which I have dangling from the rear view mirror of my car. I love them! This Hellow Kitty strap is supposed to be from the Chinese zodiac. I'm not the year of the dog, but I thought this one was so cute (and I love dogs!) so that's why I got this one...lol...

This Atobe plushie was a gift from a very cool person called Windy, who I know through a Prince of Tennis forum. She was offering free plushies to folks, and shipped them out for free too! I'd never known anyone on a forum that was so nice! Anyways, I was really thrilled because this Atobe plushie was exactly the same one I had my eye on from e-Bay the week Windy announced she was giving plushies away. What a happy coincidence! Much thanks to Windy...I love this plushie! ^_^

Wanna get!
