Kumiko Oumae – onamae wa?

Hello, Kyra here! This is Onamae wa? #36, our weekly encounter where we pick Anime character’s names and look for anything interesting in them.

Following last week’s post on Asuka, today we continue to explore names from Kitauji Brass Band. I originally planned to talk about Reina as well today, but it turned out that each of them had enough material for individual posts.

Thus our guest guest today is 黄前(ou.mae) 久美子(ku.mi.ko), main protagonist of Hibike! Euphonium 2, second season of a school drama Anime currently airing in Fall 2016. For the sake of this post, it is recommended to have watched up to Season 2 Episode 11 to avoid spoilers.

Asuka Tanaka – onamae wa?

Hello, Kyra here! This is Onamae wa? #35, our weekly encounter where we pick Anime character’s names and look for anything interesting in them.

There isn’t such thing as a precise method to decide which character is featured here in [Onamae wa?]. If I were to name one rule, it would be that his or her name couldn’t be too common, as that would make it difficult to trace any relation whatsoever about his or her personality and the characters and readings contained in it. And yet, today we have a case like this. Correction: we would have a case like this, if it weren’t for S2 episode 9.

Our main guest today is 田中(ta.naka) あすか(asuka), a main character in Hibike! Euphonium 2, a school drama anime currently airing in Fall 2016. Due to the contents of this post, it is recommended to have watched up to Episode 10 of Season 2 to avoid resounding spoilers.

Reoko Banryuu – onamae wa?

Hello, Kyra here! This is Onamae wa? #34, our weekly encounter where we pick Anime character’s names and look for anything interesting in them.

Like last week, this is another show that might not be in your watchlist for Fall 2016 (Thinking now, it is also 3D CGI and a sequel like Ajin). Back in its Season 1 there were two reasons why I stuck to this show, first one being Kogane x Matobai conflict, especially the marvelous episode 3. Now try to guess the second one.

Our main guest today is 万流 (ban.ryuu) 礼央子(re.o.ko), a supporting character in Bubuki Buranki, an action mecha show having its second season currently airing on Fall 2016. Due to the contents of this post, it is recommended to have watched up to Season 2 Episode 10 of this show to avoid spoilers to affect your Heart.
