Look at that girl

There are two new protagonists here: Pippi Longstocking representing in, for example, . just looks like a girl. You can see the head, arms, body and legs. To represent it in other characters, I'll use Pippi Longstocking. And there is Neptune, who represents the pronunciation initial "nü-", not to be confused with "nu-", "ni-" or "n-". Remember: All pronunciation initials like "xu", "ju" and "lü" using the "ü" sound are represented by Greek deities, and for "nü" I chose Neptune for his "n".

Actually, only a very few characters are pronounced with "nü". Check out these characters: -- These are the only characters including the "nü-" pronunciation initial, and are all pronounced "nü4", "nü3" or "nüe4".
