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.

* Yugioh GX 14 *

Yugioh GX 14: vs Psycho Shocker!?

Yugioh GX ep 14 was a little episodic, in that the story line seemed to come out of no where! Of course, the first thing to note is that my favorite character Manjoume Jun is out of the picture...at least, for the moment. T.T I have great hope that he'll be back before long. I still think it's quite sweet that Judai & friends went looking for him in the last episode.

So on to my review.
When the story opens, the students are on winter vacation, and Judai, Shou and Hayato are hanging out at their dorm playing DM. Daitokuji is making mochi (Japanese rice cake) over a hot grill. (They're really yummy!) One of them explodes in the cat's face! Lol!

Suddenly, a kid from Obelisk blue crashes into their room, scared out of his wits! He claims that he and his friends tried to revive the "spirit" of the Psycho Shocker by some kind of ritual...and that the monster is now out to get him. The Psycho Shocker appears behind him and grabs the boy, making off with him into the forest. Judai and buddies run after him, and come upon a clearing... Judai challenges the Psycho Shocker to a duel, to save the kids from Obelisk blue. The duel commences...

I won't go into details of the duel, since it's been discussed in forums.. see e.g. Pojo's forum.

The new cards they reveal in this episode aren't too amazing. We see mostly the same cards from Judai's eHero deck...no new monsters.

All in all, this was an OK episode. For those of you who are just sort of fans of GX, I would recommend skipping this episode, since nothing new really develops plot wise. It was kinda funny to see the rice cake exploding in Pharaoh's face though. hehe...

Next week: Duel Tennis of Youth! - looks like Judai will face off with a star tennis player who has eyes for Asuka! Stay tuned...
