#592: SubaruCo character names

I don't have the family names yet.

Sayoko Igarashi, founder and leader
Misao (Faith)
Hakuai (Charity)
Yousha (Mercy)
Makoto (Truth)
Sokai (Hope)
Teiko (Chastity)
Asa Saitou (who is later the star of American Dawn)

I had thought of "Kannon" for Mercy--Kannon is the Buddhist god of mercy--but decided against it, because I don't know if that kind of thing is done in Japan. (Indians do it all the time, of course; my 7th grade science teacher was named "Vishnu".) And I like the sound of "Yousha".

Of the names of the "virtues", only "Misao" and "Makoto" are traditional Japanese names, but that doesn't bother me very much.

I really don't know what to expect from all this, though, whether I'm actually going to begin doing layouts or what. Since my manga work is entirely for my own amusement, I only work on a story when it suits me to; I only draw what I want to draw and when I want to draw it. I guess that keeps me from being a really good artist, since you must constantly hone your skill, but the last thing I wanted from all this was a millstone or an albatross. I want it to be fun, not work.

So far, it's been fun to think about SubaruCo, so I've been thinking about it. We'll see what happens from here.
