So far, this is her first and only (annoying) flaw.

For me, she remains Layla/Leyla.

I dont care if she is Layla or reira, but official is official. Just like what americans say that C.C. is C2 which was not.
anyway do you all think there is a chance Reira is half Japanese? Why does she care to Japanese people being their commander?

Yes, I have an objection:

That says Reila. There in the picture. That shows how consistent and "official" the English names on the website are right now. :P

Layla is probably not half Japanese. She was from a noble family when she was living in Britannia, and it's unlikely that they would mix their bloodline.

She remains Layla until we find out she's actually Japanese.

A more important question would be what kind of name is Aldrin Zevon?

Since you're talking about one of the main characters from the new manga / photo novel "The Reflection of Oz," which isn't related to the Akito project as far as we know, it should be pointed out that ANN isn't using an official romanization either. The gimmick seems to be all about giving both of them similar names though.

What's with Japanese and never being able to get the western romanizations of names right?
Five minutes of research on Google would fix all that....

I can take "Reira" (I also prefer Layla) having a Japanese first name if it comes to that, but if she comes from Brittannia? She better end up being half Japanese or something like Kallen, because that would just be stupid, otherwise.

Since her name is written in Katakana, we can assume it's actually Layla. That being said, the name itself is Arabic, so maybe she's a Brittanian of Arab descent?

Wikipedia says:
Quote:
In the Nordic countries, Laila or Lajla (pronounced lie-lah) is derived from the Sami name Láilá, the Sami variant of Helga which means holy
But that's japan we are talking about...

I haven't seen the actual Akito PV from the recently released DVD box set anywhere, but some screen captures from it have surfaced.

Spoiler:


While there is nothing we didn't see in the leaked video, it's interesting to have a look at the character designs and even the CG in higher quality.

The CG definitely looks a lot like the stuff from Macross Frontier, which have the same detailed modeling but shiny shading which stands out look. I heard it mentioned somewhere that the CG studio Orange is handling the CG for Akito, so that would not come as a surprise. They've worked with Akane a lot in the past, from his Satelite shows to the two Birdy seasons. So that makes sense.

The Cg looks fabulous, not that I needed any more reasons to watch this as is.

Were these the Birdy seasons just released this last year?
