There, now I can finally stop backspacing when I accidentally type her name.
Incidentally, on the subject of the name Harena, if anyone's wondering how to pronounce it... I dunno. I tend to say it Har-ren-uh, but given the source of the word, it's probably supposed to be said as Huh-ree-nuh or, "arena." Either way, we will see her again soon enough and find out more about her, though it won't be in this chapter.
Though on the subject of the name, I do see her as the third part (well, second really since she was created first) of a group with Sareena and Marina in having that similar name structure. I pronounce them all differently, but the structure of sorts of the name with the R in the middle and A at the end is kind of an intentional thing as some sort of common naming scheme for girls in the magical community. There's a fourth person who fits that trend we'll see soon enough, and a fifth who is tied to it but doesn't actually have it apply.
Five pages left to go in this chapter, and I hope everyone keeps reading.
Heheh... Yeah, not calling her Harena in the comments has been sorta frustrating. ^^ I personally pronounce it as "Huh-ree-nuh" myself."
Huh... Okay, I just looked at the page again to think on more stuff to say, and.... A while back I did a joke page where I just re-colored Hearst with Gendo Ikari's colors. Now she seems to be sporting them in-universe. I have no idea if that was deliberate or not. Maybe she has a kid somewhere she just abandoned. They do both have the "used to be a delinquent" sort of backstory given how she used to dress.
Heheh.... I love that last panel. Wasn't in the script, that just had them leaving the office, but you just know they're gonna rib her about this for a while. Maybe for her birthday, Candice will give her a Superman toy.
So her name is Harena of Sand, how fitting, so when are we going to see the Twilight Minister again?
Fairly soon. We'll be hearing from him again though in very short order.
