Do we have confirmation that she's Mameaki? I still haven't found any in Japanese or English.

Well, we have confirmation now from Arumukos. Her name is Mameaki (まめ章), and her misedashi will be at the end of the month.

Cute name! Interesting that the kanji for "aki" is the same as Fumino's "fumi." I foresee some furigana on her senjafuda...

That's exactly what I thought too. Fumikazu also uses that kanji for "fumi" as well :oops:

That is very odd. I can't find another use of -haya in the karyukai before o.o

Yeah, I was wondering if it's a nod to the archery term? I have 2 female Japanese friends who do archery, and the Ya (arrow) kanji is used in geimei like in Ayako's name

It's pretty on the ears :)
