Happy Birthday, Sonoda-Umi chan!! Here’s Today’s Feature Article, “Yamato Nadeshiko” Characters!



Saori(σゝ∀・)σ “Guess what? Today, March 15th, is Sonoda-Umi Chan (one of the characters in Love Live, who is in charge of composing songs in μ's)’s birthday! Happy Birthday!!”






Boss(  'ω') “Speaking of Umi-Chan... Japanese beauty... I mean, 大和撫子(Yamato Nadeshiko) is the best described word for her, right?”






Saori(σゝ∀・)σ(Her facial expression looks a little weird sometimes though... Oops, I’m not gonna say that now.)






Boss(  'ω') “Yamato Nadeshiko is an eulogistic name in which we use a flower ‘Nadeshiko’, to resemble Japanese women’s pure, neat and clean beauty. It’s a collective term for beautiful women; strong and elegant Japanese women.”



★ “Flowers of Nadeshiko” which Yamato Nadeshiko is derived from





Saori(σゝ∀・)σ “Recent Japanese anime characters are mostly recognized as Japanese-like girls with black long hair, huh?”

Boss(  'ω') “Reviewing these characters, the definition of Yamato Nadeshiko is rather vague, don’t you think? It’s a personal prospective to decide who has more potentials of being ‘elegant, beautiful and strong’ so we really don’t have a definite standard, right? (To me, most characters in Kancolle are classified as Yamato Nadeshiko...)”






Saori(σゝ∀・)σ “In other words, everybody has a different recognition of calling characters ‘Yamato Nadeshiko’, huh? That means if you think a certain character is strong, beautiful and elegant, then she’s your Yamato Nadeshiko.”






Boss(  'ω') “But isn’t that... a little vague for this feature article?”


Saori(σゝ∀・)σ “We should have this kind of article once in a while, you know?? What character do you think is your Yamato Nadeshiko? Once again... Happy Birthday, Umi-Chan!!!”
