Pettanko Thursday – Ichigo, Ink, Bernkastel

Morino Ichigo

I’m sorry for last week, that there was no Pettanko Thursday. Some urgent business cropped up on Thursday’s evening and it kept me from making the regular PT post. But I will try to make up for it today by presenting you a very refined selection of three characters voiced by same seiyuu, who is very popular I dare say and belongs to my favorite seiyuus, too. As many of you can certainly guess by the names in the post title, I’m talking about Tamura Yukari.

Tamura Yukari was born in Fukuoka on 27th of February, 1976, which means she is 17 years old, like many other seiyuus ^^ She works for the I’m Enterprise company as a seiyuu, and her singles and albums have been being released by King Records since 2007. Earlier, they were being released by Konami Music Entertainment.

Her hobbies are tying ribbons, making sweets, and collecting cats (probably cat-themed goods).

Morino Ichigo

One of Yukarin’s first major roles is Morino Ichigo from anime series Onegai Teacher!. Despite looking like a junior high schooler, she’s actually 21 years old. Ichigo is very quiet and doesn’t associate with other people very much, which makes her look cold-hearted and uncaring. However, she cares a lot for the few friends she has, and even helps two of them to draw together. The main reason for her actions is that she doesn’t want to let them experience painful emotions like she has had.

She lives alone in a rather austere apartment, because she doesn’t want to be a burden to her parents. Why should she be a burden is something I will not say, as I would spoil too much.

Morino Ichigo

Despite her age, she is not much endowed. Though, there are certain circumstances that have undoubtedly affected her development. Still, what we count is what we can see, and, let’s say we cannot really see anything there. Pretty much dead plains.

Nijihara Ink

Last time I presented Sumi from Moetan to you, and this time I’m presenting her classmate and the main heroine, Nijihara Ink. She is 17 years old, though she doesn’t look like it at all, and people often mistake her as an elementary schooler. Her strong point is English, which she is supposedly very good at. After meeting with a magical, but above all a perverted duck, she gains magical powers and the ability to transform into mahou shoujo. When she assumes her magical form, she goes by the name Pastel Ink. And as Pastel Ink, she helps people who are in trouble. However, her primary objective is to teach English in disguise to her classmate, whom she has crush on. Still, she goes through some adventures thanks to her magical powers and the perv- ehm, magic duck.

What she would like as yandere

Nijihara Ink

One of Ink’s characteristic traits is her ability to trip over nothing, and her clumsiness overall.

Frederica Bernkastel

Frederica Bernkastel, making appearance in Higurashi and Umineko, is said to be a witch. The Witch of Miracles, to be specific. She very much resembles Furude Rika from Higurashi series, and even her first name, when transcripted into Japanese, strongly resembles “Furude Rika”. Bernkastel is said to be able to enter a unique world, or rather space, where she can picture fate and odds and compare it in numerous, parallel worlds. This power gives her the ability to bring about miracles as long as their probability of happening is not zero.

Frederica Bernkastel

She is a traveling witch, who can travel between the kakera (something like parallel dimensions) and step into territories of other witches without losing her powers.

Frederica Bernkastel

Some artists draw Bernkastel with ordinarily developed breasts, yet, some draw her as a pettanko character. Her real bust size is unknown, as it’s utterly unimportant for the story. As for the anime, Studio DEEN have portrayed her almost as flat as a chopping board.

I’m not telling you any more as I don’t want to spoil this masterpiece to you. Besides, I couldn’t even say much with certainty, because there are various theories about Bernkastel’s entity. Go read the visual novel, it’s an unforgettable experience.
