fishlove found this report from the Tokyo International Anime Fair, which has the names to all the characters in Velvet Underworld.
His real name is Tomoe Uruyu, apparently. His family name is interesting, because the first thing I thought of was Tomoe Sakura. I wonder if there's any connection...? Uruyu is a pretty interesting name, because I've never heard it before. I even checked the online name dictionary and they have no record of Uruyu. So... Koyasu made it up? Is the original report not so accurate? Is it actually a rare name? Not a clue.
Speaking of names, those of the thirteen who attacked him originally are written on his skin. Looking at the picture, I think I can make out the kanji "天狼" which could mean Sirius, the dog star, or just the name Tenrou. Or I might be misreading incomplete kanji.
VELVET, KURO, DRY and PAWN we already know a little about.
...Neu, maybe? Although Noi is a Japanese name in its own right.
It's Willy Wonka! But, judging by his name and the picture, he seems to specialise in disguises. Maybe we won't see him wearing that outfit for most of the show. I don't know whether I'd be relieved or disappointed.
Underpants man! He appears to be a sniper, so maybe the lingerie helps him focus?
A fairly typical Japanese name. Fairly typical looking man.
Military outfit, plain name. Hmm... I'm guessing he's from the military. But from which one? The self-defence force...? Or another country's...?
The guy in the bobble hat. He appears to be a safe-cracker, but I've no idea about the significance of the numbers in his name.
The boy that looked like Yuki. Garagara means to rattle or clatter, usually.
You can also see the villains, who look so cool! One of them even looks like Crawford...
Who are you most interested in?
Today I briefly became a tennis boy (YAY!) and took part in my middle school's tennis club. That'll be in a locked post, obviously. Just not sure when... *tired*
