... Um... yes it is. I KNOW how Japanese names are written, you're talking to a learned Japanese major here so don't try pulling that bull s**t with me =P I saw this discussed somewhere else. If the names were intended to be in the Japanese form they would be pronounced as such but are they? No, Seiya always says 'Seiya Kou' and I'm going by that. Not what you claim Its like putting my last name first because that's the Japanese way.
So, Seiya/Yaten/Taiki speak Japanese... go to Japanese school... are Japanese stars... and yet they'd say their names in an American way?

I don't want to debate in this way, especially since there's few Sailor Moon fans already. But I think "When in Rome" (or Tokyo) applies here.

And damn it, don't blame my hyperactive imagination! sweatdrop


Look... all I know is I pronounce names the way they are pronounced in the anime/manga. Its a sure fire path that hasn't failed me yet. If it was really Kou Seiya with Kou being their family name as the Japanese way states... then they would've been said that way in the anime/manga, but are they? No, so... kinda spoils your argument there. So one can only assume either all their names are Kou or their names are in the Western style, which I've seen before.
Well, as far as I know, we don't actually know what the Starlight's real names are. Kou Seiya/Yaten/Taiki are aliases they use on Earth.

And Star Fighter is called "Seiya Kou" in the anime, just like Sailor Moon is called "Tsukino Usagi".

Um, about the America name thing, were the starlight suppose to have come from NA. I may be wrong on that one but I thought I heard it some where. However name a name no matter what order you put in. To me it's seems like the whole tomato, tamato thing. You should just say the way you prefer and leave it at that ^_^

Yep! 29 came out today >^^< Though I've already seen it. I keep track of the raws and watch them each week the first instant they come out. I'm not liking this Kuroki Mio b***h though >_> Grrrrrr....
I have most of the episodes except for the episodes of sailor moon stars where they have to re-face Queen Nephrinia after sailor moon becomes eternal sailor moon. hotaru is so cool in those episodes. Yay. Does anyone know about chibi chibi? heart heart heart
I'm a little late with this, but... anyway...

Can't find my manga at the moment, but the Materials collection artbook says Seiya/Taiki/Yaten Kou. For reference, it also says Tsukino Usagi, Kino Makoto, etc. So... yeah... surprised
