The more I learn about Japanese culture the more I enjoy it. However, the more things perplex me. I am not good in the slightest at kanji or the Japanese language so I thought I’d come here to ask. In two animes there are characters name Tamaki. One is a male, one is a female. What’s the meaning behind the name and is it normally unisexual?
