Can I ask something about Hermit's name?

In Japan when they talk about someone's name, they start with his/her surname. My question is, how should I type Hermit's name? Tanimoto Natsu or Natsu Tanimoto? Or my question is which is the surname?

Natsu is his first name. Tanimoto is surname.

That's why he always gets pissed off when Kenichi "friendly" calls him Natsu-chan.

Thanks for the answer you gave me. I really want my character's name to have the same format as Hermit's name in Japanese.

Spoiler for Ragnarok:

Will he be wearing a derby and carrying a camera by any chance?

Theory about the next arc

It seems to me that Renka, Ryou Ma’s disciples and the 3 Headed Dragon would, if they fought with as much teamwork as the Alliance does, be a very powerful team. Renka and Ryou’s disciples took down a master effectively by themselves when it took several Shinpaku members to take down Fortuna who in the best case scenario would be on par with guy the Chinese Group beat. This suggests superiority to me. Furthermore the 3 Headed Dragon nearly beat Kenichi and Miu who’re the strongest two from Shinpaku and it’s feasible that had their leader been more of a team player that they’d have won. In addition to all the above this chapter showed that not only do they spar with each other regularly they also act as a filter for those who’d challenge Kensei. This means not only do they have greater experience fighting other disciples they’ve got more experience fighting master class foes.

As I’ve theorised for a while now I reckon that when the YOMI arc concludes Kensei’s past will catch up with him with a vengeance. As a result he’ll either go back to China with Kenichi and the Chinese group in tow or his Chinese rivals will come after him and the other Masters at Ryozanpaku, the Chinese group and the Shinpaku Alliance will all join in the battle.

_________________________________

Anyway that being said I have to say I’d forgotten just how risqué Rachel’s outfit was. I was operating under the assumption that, to borrow some of Adam Warren’s words, Renka was dressed in the most do-me-riffic and slut-tastic way of all the characters in the manga but Rachel has ripped away all such delusions.

I realise that but if Kenichi isn't going to say yes or even maybe to his alternatives to Miu then he can at least say no. What we've got now is a situation in which he's neither interested or uninterested in all these other girlswhich creates the false impression of a harem when really it's always been Kenichi/Miu
I dont think it is Kenichi's "duty" to say no to any of the girls... after all they are his best friends and i dont think it is a good reason to end a important friendship because they like him... not sure if im expresing it right. Kenichi never did or even think of anything else of Renka, garden girl or any other than his best friends and all of them know that.

The only one that might not be doing the "right" thing is Miu... like Renka and Shigure mentioned before, she is not being to true to her feelings. The Kenichi harem is there because she cant admit she likes Kenichi more than she claims ^_^

It's not his duty to do so but clearly Renka at least is the sort of girl who won't take a hint and Izumi (gardening club girl) despite seeing how Kenichi behaves around Miu is still unsucessfully trying to ask him out. In addition why would all these other girls be introduced as Kenichi's potential love interests if they're not utilised for that purpose either rid them of that aspect of their character as it existing and having no chance is a burden on their character or act on it and in so doing deepen not only their character but the strength of whatever relationship Kernichi chooses to settle in eventually.

There's more than enough eligible males in this manga for Kenichi to not be the only option so if the mangaka really insists on having ships and yet keeping Miu/Kenichi inviolate he could pair people up with other people. It seems though that he loves creating triangles or various polygonous shaped romances and then not acting on that groundwork for example he introduced Kisara/Ukita but in the same chapter introduced Freya/Ukita and then he proceeded to completely ignore Freya's supposed interest in Ukita and focus entirely on Kisara/Ukita. As far as I'm concerned if you're going to ship ship with a vengeance and if you're not then don't. This half hearted attempt at shipping isn't even worth reading.

Yeah, in the last chapter released he seems to be trying to pair Renka and Takeda
Which is fine by me. Kenichi is getting the attention of most of the manga's females.

For me Freya X Thor would be better , Let Kisara X Ukita . For Renka , not Takeda .
No Chikage in this last chapter ...

Awesome chapter, Takeda's one of my favorite characters so I'm glad to see him getting a few pages. Hopefully Kenichi and Takeda will spar- I've been wondering about Takeda's improvement since he really began training with James.

And this is completely off topic, but was it ever said what type of martial artist Renka was? Dou or Sei? Just rereading the fight between Appachai and the Master in China and I realized that Kenichi compared the attack trails to Seikuken, which was a Sei type move, so if Renka could see them then that would probably make her a Sei type, but here personality seems so Dou. And that was a very odd phrase.

i think just seikuken is for either sei or dou, think Ryuuto. It's Ryuusui Seikuken that's a purely sei ability. Just being able to see it doesn't make her either/or. So there is really no way to tell what Renka is but i feel that she leans more towards sei.

Huh? I thought Ryuuto was Sei naturally, he just learned how to use Dou and Sei, though?

renka is dou without doubt, the way of her free living style indicates it

for those who cannot categorize sei or dou correctly, maybe the translation of the words will help u determine future character's type: "sei" means tranquil, "dou" means budging or moving. that has always helped me determining the correct type flawlessly

... Kenichi having many masters is a foreshadowing for what he'll do with his romantic life?

Furinji Miu the superwife, Ma Renka the master of all Chinese "techniques", Kousaka Shigure, prodigy of weapons and exhibitionism, Garden Girl, 100th dan homely wife? He kinda lacks a shinigami of underground wifery...
