I think that Rozen Maiden, Marimite, and Simoun has far more quantities of Otome-type girls than even Mai Hime / Otome.
True, although I would agree more if we add Mai-HiME to the better ones and leave just Otome in the other category. It totally ruined the word "otome" for me, it is now something of a synonym of stupid and childish. But regardless whether we call it Otome or not, any character, male or female, who is not there just for the fanservice value and can actually use his or her brain at least once in a while is already above the majority of anime characters.


Reading all this about Yun made me want to rewatch all the episodes that she takes part in because I can't seem to remember half of the things that are being mentioned about her.

Spoiler for post episode 16 speculation:

I like this discussion about Yun to hell.

I have noticed some think Yun has a masculine character or mentality,
which I can't quite agree to.

Basically, I don't think there is things like masculine or feminine when it comes to "the character."
If one brought up some features of character as masculine or feminine, I think I would be able to show bunch of the counter samples who are boys but not masculine rather feminine and the opposite.
For me, character is dependent on individual feature, not gender.

As for her way of talking, it is true Yun refer to herself using "ore," which is a masculine expression.
But apart from that, her speech is not ultra masculine, not to speak of macho.
It can be boyish but not something to allow us to think she has masculine mentality after all.
Expression at the end of sentences like "jia nai ka" for asking agreement, "dana" for suggestion and others, can be seen boyish if you want, but it's not that girls never use them.
If a contrasting example is needed, Jou from Bakuretsu Tenshi certainly uses very masculine conjugations, like "je," and Lebi from Black Lagoon speaks like a macho.
Yun sometimes uses somewhat formal expressions and words, and these features including conjugations altogether give an impression she is speaking in a decent, aristocratic and knightly way.
And this impression would be augmented by the fact the world they live in has no clear distinction of gender thing as for underages.

I fed the Japanese Wikipedia page to Babelfish, and here's what it came up with for the cast:Who does Alti want to give her oral blessing to? Someone dense....

Someone has made animated gifs of the Simoun gem showing the various Ri Maajon that have been drawn so far. They are posted on the Simoun image board. I made a page linking to them all, with translations. Don't look at it too long, you'll get dizzy, lol.

Yes,interpreting Japanese names literally always cracks me up, although they don't seem to take the meaning seriously.

Toyoguchi Megumi : Abundant mouth blessing(grace)

Probably blessed by her name, Toyoguchi is amazingly eloquent.
Seriously, she just blows up my mind by the speed and wit when she speaks.
But I love her voice more when she swears and speaks slangs as in Black Lagoon.

I have been gathering pictures of Simoun cast.
Some of them.

Toyogutjjing (Alti)

Nana sang (Morinas)

Kaori Natsuka (Yun)

Amisuke (Paraietta)

Hilarious Amisuke ^__^

MamiMami (Limone)

You have got to be joking me... You're lucky I wasn't working tonight, or the raw would've been out 5 hours from now.

After the first minute, I realized I loved all of these people. Everything about ep17 rocks: the people, the plot, the script, the music, the animation, the backgrounds.... I agree with wowo: this is art.

episode 17

HOLY SH@T! o_o
Okay, this show is freakin getting into my top 3 anime list now.

The music in the end part was too amazing. Finally, anime which can be truly called art!

Starting on translation now, but looking at the amount of content in this episode, I'm guessing a release tomorrow afternoon.
