fishlove found this report from the Tokyo International Anime Fair, which has the names to all the characters in Velvet Underworld.

AYA

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.

NOI

...Neu, maybe? Although Noi is a Japanese name in its own right.

FAKE

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.

LINX

Underpants man! He appears to be a sniper, so maybe the lingerie helps him focus?

YOSHIKAZU

A fairly typical Japanese name. Fairly typical looking man.

ROCK

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...?

BLUEBERRY

AWESOME NAME.

303

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.

BIRMAN

Ooh. :)

GARAGARA

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...

Poll #972373 Velvet Under World...?

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*

mmmmm, Hard to pick without any ticky boxes. Had to vote for Garagara in the end, because he's cute and looks angsty. I think he's tied with Blueberry for who I'm most curious about, but Garagara had no votes yet. Woe!

The villains *definitely* look fun.

I wonder how long it'll take VU to get from this to the point where we can actually watch it... Thank you, Koyasu-san, for indulging in our need for assassins and wtf.

Yay~ tennis boys. >XD

I was torn between Blueberry and Fake, myself. But I just want to know more about Blueberry because of his name. Which really is awesome.

...I wonder who Fake really is...?

And yeah, I wondered about that too. These things usually take ages, particularly since they're only just deciding the seiyuu (they say).

I'm betting the seiyuu will probably end up being Koyasu's buddies again (if they're free), which I certainly don't mind in the least. ^_____^ (My Japanese may be for sh**, but I already went to vote for Midorikawa-san, Okiayu-san, and Seki-san to appear again.)

Koyapi, I heart you!! <3333
