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.

* Poll Results *

Previous poll results archives

athena's notes:

Well, my first poll was completely not related to anime...but I got a fair number of votes, which is good. I love the Iron Chef! The original version is definitely better than Iron Chef America, though I do watch the latter as well. I watch a lot of Food Network...it's probably one of my favorite channels. If you've never watched the Iron Chef before...be sure to catch it - 11 pm every weekday on the Food Network. ^_~

Favorite Yugioh gaijin:

Malik is number 1...that's to be expected. What an awesome character. I love his duel personality. But Pegasus will always be my favorite!
  1. Malik Ishtar (25.56%)
  2. Varon (18.8%)
  3. Raphael (17.29%)
  4. Pegasus J. Crawford (14.29%)

  8. Amelda (1.5%)

Favorite GX character:

Ah...I should've taken the poll down when Manjoume was still ahead...lol. You know, I wonder why Ryou's so popular a character? I mean, I like the guy, but he's not my favorite. He's just kind of there. He's not a very interesting character compared to Manjoume. I just don't get it. I guess he looks good, and is a great duelist... and I do like his relationship with Shou. But there's something about him that that's just a little stand-offish. Dunno.. Anyway, here are the results.

Total: 144 votes

  1. Yuki Judai (27.78%)
  2. Marufuji Ryou (26.39%)
  3. Manjoume Jun (18.06%)
  4. Tenjoin Asuka (9.72%)
  5. Misawa Daichi (7.64%)
  6. Chronos / other (3.47%)
  7. Marufuji Shou (2.78%)
  8. Maeda Hayato (0.69%)
Favorite GX deck type:

Gah! My poll mysteriously disappeared! T.T Sorry about that... I don't know what happened to it. From what I remember, the top three deck types were...
  1. Cyber Dragon Deck
  2. E-Hero Deck
  3. H2O Deck
Coolest Seigaku move

  1. Triple Counters(26)
  2. Tezuka Zone (22)
  3. Acrobatic Tennis (10)
  4. Boomerang Snake (9)
  5. Twist Serve (6)
  6. Hadoukuu (4)
  7. Data Tennis (3)
  8. Dunk Smash (2)
  9. Moon Volley (2)
  10. Other (2)
Tezuka Zone came in second...why does what I vote for always come 2nd? Well, Fuji's Triple Counters ARE pretty awesome, so I'm not too surprised. Lol. Anyways, I was expecting someone to vote for "other", for Tezuka's Zero-shiki drop shot...but oh well. The voters for "other" didn't specify...

Iron Chef Battle

  1. Morimoto - 22 votes
  2. Sakai - 20 votes
  3. Kobe - 5 votes
  4. Chen - 4 votes
  5. Michiba - 2 votes

My favorite came in second, but that's ok. It was neck & neck between Morimoto & Sakai, but in the end, Iron Chef Japanese reigned supreme over the Delacroix of French Cuisine. Allez Cuisine!!
