Site Work Failed, But We Didn't Die

Ugh. Still more roadblocks. Need to get an as-yet unknown password from Nay in order to get this sucker changed. For now, please enjoy the mess of a forums we've got, and dream of the forums we will probably never one day have.

Don't have much to say on the game, but I just have to take the chance to use it as a case in point to a general question I have.

How badly are VNs misrepresenting naming conventions of your countries?

Going to elaborate a bit on this:

I'm german and I had to notice over time, that characters in VNs, or rather in any japanese media, tend to be named more german than any german is.

In german you can combine most nouns to make ridiculously long words such as Arbeiterunfallversicherungsgesetz, which roughly means law about insurance concerning work related accidents. In that respect last names are mostly represented okay, they are usually based on professions or places, Kohlschreiber is the most unusal construct here as it would translate to something like cabbage writer, even in an extended sense I can't connect this to anything.

However the first names are often names you would only expect to encounter when you meet people 60+ or not anymore at all.

Margit, Fine, (based on Josefine, both are almost never used) and Siegrun (Actually Sigrun, which is based on a rune that was later used by the nazis, barely used anymore for obvious reasons) are all names you wouldn't expect to encouter or that would make you actually pause for a second in bewilderment. (At least when encountering someone under 60)

This actually has a negative effect on the reading experience for me sometimes, anybody else having similar experiences?

Sorry if I'm derailing this.

I mean, I'm all for more Majikoi in any shape or form, so I'm happy about this.

Seems like they've upped their artwork too, they have had time to do so though, so no real surprise. Now if I could only read A-5... (Still awaiting translations for A-3, A4, etc)
