    Re: The Official character names in English

    I found the official romanization of the Asian branch on this trading card, which is included in Wish (6th ED theme) single.

    Spoiler show


    The text on the trading card is hard to read, but I will try my best. They are:

    For
    Bak Chang
    S?? Han Wan/Won?
    (his is the hardest to read)
    Rohfa
    Rikei
    Shifu


    Hopefully, there will be a better picture posted up soon. ^^

    Won's name looks like "Sammo Han Won" to me. But what's with Fou's name? Is that another likely misspelling (like Jerry "really" being Jeryy)? Crazy...

    it can't be. it's from the official trading card that is included in the dgm anime 6th ending.

    i think it's sammo han wan. wan is a chinese surname so it makes sense.

    It would make sense, but it looks like an "o" in his name (compare to the "a" in Bak's). They'd sound the same in Japanese, though, and Hoshino doesn't seem to be that great with picking accurate Chinese names all the time (shouldn't "Lee" be "Li" in Chinese, for instance?).

    good point. there is a chinese surname wong but hoshino might have dropped the "g".

    Maybe Sammo Han Won is Korean? That's the first thing I thought when i saw this.
    Hoshino has made a point of calling it the Asian branch, after all, not the Chinese branch.

    Re: The Official character names in English

    Haha... well, I don't think we have the official romanization of his name. Just assume that whenever someone types Cyril/Sheril/Sheryl, they're talking about the same guy. (Knowing Hoshino, it's going to be something none of us saw coming like Shiryl or whatever.)
