The GEM Thread

GEMs. Every Otome wields one. This things are...

* practical miniaturized transformation devices?
* or there's a deeper meaning/symbolism behind their fancy names like "Kyouen no Murasakizuishou" (嬌嫣の紫水晶) and "Souten no Seigyoku" (蒼天の青玉)?


For example the second kanji 嫣 in the name of Shizuru's GEM, has an interesting meaning according to the Unihan database: http://www.unicode.org/cgi-bin/GetUn...codepoint=5ae3

Why is there a dot betwean the word "Robe" and it's Clasification?
- Robe.Blue Sky Sapphire
- Robe.Amethyst
- Robe.Coral
Isn't Robe the full name? :(

About Mai's GEM
 
Tokiha Mai 炎殊の紅玉(?) Enju no Kougyoku

The first kanji 炎 (en) is the flame. It's almost 100% correct.
I'm used for the second kanji what most of the japanese bloggers used.
殊 - exceptionally
but the a ju/shu part could be written with dozens of other kanji
possible other versions:
嬬 - mistress
朱 - scarlet/red
呪 - spell/curse/charm

I don't know if I should post this here, but it's about gems...

Month ----- Gem ----- Virtue
January ----- Garnet ----- Loyalty
February ----- Amethyst ----- Sincerity
March ----- Aquamarine ----- Courage
April ----- Diamond ----- Innocence
May ----- Emerald ----- Love
June ----- Pearl ----- Health
July ----- Ruby ----- Satisfaction
August ----- Peridot ----- Conjugal happiness
September ----- Sapphire ----- Intelligence
October ----- Opal ----- Hope
November ----- Topaz ----- Fidelity
December ----- Turquoise ----- Prosperity

Conclusions about the characters may be drawn with this ?

Was this form the japanese website?

Not so sure if we can use this as our conclusion for the characters..maybe it reflects a little.

If we stick with Arika getting the Sapphire GEM, it would mean her main virtue is intelligence. Uhmm... A lot comes to my mind when thinking of Arika, but that's not the first thing.

Obsidian penguin 2006-01-03 12:06

It's simply astrological stones : http://www.webindia123.com/astrology/gems.htm

They use earth months while they are not on earth. Why not using astrological stones from earth ?

And me too, intelligence doesn't come first into my mind when thinking of Arika...

And about other Otomes and characters ?
We can suppose that like Mashiro, some may have their date of birth changed.
HiME-Shizuru was born on december, but Otome-Shizuru may be february.
As for Mai, HiME-Mai was born on July.

And what do you think about peridot, quite conflictual for an Otome ?

On a side note, HiME-Akane was born on September 7th.

Believe it or not, I agree.. :heh:
Otome Nao and HiME Nao are different from what they think about virginity.. (maybe? :confused: )

Keep in mind that the MH Nao, despite appearances, has not once traded sex for money. (even though that's what all her classmates thought she was doing.)

She might rob people, and use sexuality as bait, but the real MH Nao is someone who truly detests men, and certainly won't have sex with random people willingly.

Is MH Nao a virgin? Who knows, it depends on what she was like before her mother got sick. The Nao as we know it in MH, after she starts 'earning' money for her mother's illness, was only interested in robbing people. I certainly don't think Nao had sex for some time in MH, if at all...

Juliet Nao Zhang, Jasper of the Pure Spirit

Jasper is one of the birth stones listed for the Sun Sign of Virgo.

If the "Fire String Ruby" is correct then Mai's GEM could be 炎紐の紅玉 Enjuu no Kougyoku

It is confirmed 炎授の紅玉 from TV Tokyo's My Otome Official site.

http://www.tv-tokyo.co.jp/contents/m...s01/index.html

See the bottom of the page.

EDIT: Yes, I fixed.
