In kanji, "hime" means "princess", in hiragana, it means something in this article other than princess. --PJ Pete

Other forms of "Hime"

edit

The word, "ohimesama" would definitely mean "princess bride". The ONLY Japanese word you would use for a princess who isn't married is "hime". PJ Pete

Hime as name

Hime is the call name of Liliane in Princess Resurrection--89.61.69.53 11:28, 27 May 2007 (UTC)Reply

Shikome

edit

If "shikome" (ugly female) is archaic, I would say that it means it's no longer used, so there's no longer an antonym for "hime". --PJ Pete June 7, 2008

Specify which word between "hime" and "shikomi" is archaic.

edit

• In the second paragraph, one of the sentences ends with "though it is archaic and rarely used". It does not specify which word is archaic, "hime" or "shikomi". The clause comes right after "shikomi" being mentioned which makes it seem like it's meant for that but the last sentence of third paragraph starts with "Unlike Hime, Hiko is neutral, non-archaic and still commonly used" which makes it seem like "hime" is the archaic word if not both. Nonetheless, it also lacks dictionary references. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 46.255.151.234 (talk) 05:03, 16 December 2022 (UTC)Reply
