Saiunkoku Monogatari -- Characters' faces and names

I enjoy this series a lot, but I'm having trouble being sure who is who. So I made a page with faces, names and short bios of the main characters, to try to keep everything straight.

Saiunkoku: Characters' faces and names

The bios are mainly from the official site's characters page, as are the pictures. I've added the names of the voice actors. And since the show is set in China – a fantasy version of the Tang period, I think – I've added the Chinese pronunciation of their names. This helps me, anyway, since I know Chinese a lot better than I know Japanese. And in any case, the sounds of the names differ more in Chinese.

Other resources:

Bertram Amparo's summaries of the first three volumes of the novel -- which is now up to volume 10.

Thank you for posting this. I was confused by some of the characters as well.

Dee said...

Will you one day update the character page to include minor characters that play a big role? Just wondering. Love your site :)

I'll be updating with all the characters in the characters section of the official site, which will include some of the people in Sa. If there are others you'd like included, please let me know. I'm sorry I haven't got to it yet.

Check out the Wikipedia article on the characters, which goes into some detail. Since that article exists, I may change my format to emphasize the voice actors a bit more.

Hi Nice Blog .If you fast forward through your play list, ipod battery will need to fill its cache more frequently, thus accessing the hard drive more often and using more power. This will decrease overall battery life.
