Because I'm a shameless Manjoume fangirl.
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 28 *
Yugioh GX Ep 28: The Extra Curricular Class -
Is a Shadow Duel? (part 2)
Um....yeah, Judai pulls another fast one. Nuf said.
The good thing is, this sets up the next story line, and I'm intrigued about who the owner of the other half of the pendant is. (Fubuki?)
Oh, and *Manjoume!* will be in the next episode. Yay!
The duel continues...
Tomb Keeper (TK) LP: 900
Monsters: Tomb Keeper's Sorceror (1300 atk), Tomb Keeper's Assassin (2000 atk)
Judai LP: 1000
Asuka and company are still panicking in their caskets below, and urge Judai to try his best. Daitokuji chuckles to himself, thinking that this shadow game is exactly what is needed to bring out Judai's true capabilities, and he's eager to witness it. Only, he can't see because the lid to his casket is blocking his view, gah!
Judai: Summons Hane Kuribo in def.
TK: Attacks Kuribo with Assassin. Judai activates instant magic Wings of Evolution, transforming Kuribo into LVL 10 by discarding 2 cards from his hand. But TK activates the effect of his monster Tomb Keeper's Overseer from his hand. By discarding this card to his hand, he can negate the activation of Judai's magic (presumably because this magic card involved the discarding of cards). He destroys Kuribo. He taunts Judai, asking him if he's got any moves, now that his small fry monster has been destroyed. Judai isn't pleased.
Judai: Activates Pot of Greed. Summons Dark Catapulter in def (1500 def). Activates magic card Mirage of Nightmares. Sets 3 m/t. Judai thinks to himself that he can reverse this situation, by destroying Necro Valley with Dark Catapulter's effect, and calling into his hand a good combo using Mirage.
TK: Draws. Judai activates Mirage's effect, drawing cards until his hand is 4. TK notes that even if he drew good cards, it's meaningless in a shadow duel. He sacrifices Sorceror to summon himself, Leader of the Tomb Keepers (original atk 1900, ups to 2400 by Necro Valley). As long as this card is on his field, his graveyard isn't affected by Necro Valley. And he can also special summon one Tomb Keeper monster from his grave. He special summons Long Spear Soldier (atk 1500 --> 2000). He activates a trap card Ritual of Spiritual Summons, which lets him special summon a Tomb Keeper from the grave, without regard to Necro Valley's effect. He special summons Sorceror. When this card is summoned, flip summoned or special summoned, it inflicts 500 LP damage to opponent. (Judai LP: 500).
Although the pain courses through Judai from the shadow game's effect, he stands up unphased, saying he's got a dream - to become the king of duelists. He's inspired by Yugi, who had battled through lots of shadow games. TK attacks with Assassin, after changing Catapulter into atk by her effect. Assassin hesitates as she attack, much to the anger of TK. Judai activates the magic card Emergency Rations and sacrifices one face down m/t card on his field to increase his LP (Judai LP: 2500). Catapulter is destroyed (Judai LP 1500). TK smacks the Assassin for her hesitation, and Judai gets angry, saying he hates people who disrespect their monsters.
TK continues his attack. He attacks with himself, and Judai activates the trap Drain Shield, negating one monter's attack, and increasing his LP by that monter's atk points. (Judai LP: 3900). Direct attack with Sorceror and Long Spear. (Judai LP: 600). Activates the magic card Imperial Sacrifice, which sends all monster cards in both players' hand to the grave, if Necro Valley is in play.
Judai: Was writhing in pain from the attack, but manages to get up and smirk. Heh. He draws Edgeman. He tells TK that Necro Valley prevents activation of cards from this world that affect the world of the dead...but that it doesn't necessarily follow that the dead can't reach up into the world of the living. He activates the effect of E-Hero Necro Darkman, which lets him summon a high level E-Hero monster without sacrifice. This can only be done once, and only when Necro Darkman is in the grave. He summons Edgeman (2600 atk) and attacks Sorceror (1300 atk) for the win.
* End Duel *
Judai rushes to TK's side to see if he's ok. He says it was a fun duel, much to TK's surprise. "That shadow game was fun?" he asks. Judai replies that it was cool to be able to play with real spirits, even though it hurt a little. TK says he's only the 2nd person to have passed the ritual, though the first person to beat him didn't enjoy the duel, as Judai did.
He gives him a pendant and tells him that the first guy who passed this ritual has the remaining half of the pendant. He says ominously that should he find himself in a shadow duel again, this pendant will probably help him. TK releases his friends, and they prepare to leave the alternate universe. However, the tomb keepers try to stop them, even though their leader tells Judai's group that they are free to leave. The Assassin steps in between, and tells the soldiers that they will have to get through her before laying a finger on Judai and friends. Her mask falls away, revealing the girl who had saved Judai in the last episode. She tells Judai that she has a message for the first guy who passed the ritual: "Tell him that I have never forgotten him, even though we live in different worlds...and that I have faith we shall see one another again."
The group then makes a break for the gates of the tomb, and manage to return to their world, as the three suns merge into one... (there's a funny scene where Hayato trips and injures himself, and his Koala monster materializes so he can carry Hayato out with the rest of them... ^_^ )
Judai awakens in the real world with Asuka leaning against his shoulder, unconscious. The rest of his friends are sprawled out on the ground, also unconsious. Judai thinks it was all a dream, but looks down and sees the pendant around his neck, and realizes it was all real..
