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.

* Haven't run away, yet... *
I'm sorry I've been rather absent lately. I've been having a very busy summer, and haven't been able to keep with the blog. I really apologize, as I should have at least stopped by here to tell everyone about taking a hiatus, but kept hesitating to come. ^___^;;
I've been keeping up with the recent episodes, and I must say that the story is really getting interesting! Episode 42 was so sweet, I loved it. I'm thinking that after the end of this upcoming week, I might be able to come back here and start working on some more things here.
The question is, I'm not sure how far back I should go. I wonder if everyone has already been getting summaries elsewhere in any case, and wouldn't need any from me, at least of the later episodes? If you have any suggestions, please comment to this post and let me know.
Thanks, and sorry again! I'll drop in again maybe in a week. ^____^
