They were required to by the Japanese content owners. We can only assume they think "Holo" looks prettier than "Horo" (or that they were raised with one of the older romaji systems).

Adding on to what Vexx said, the Japanese also insisted that the US novels and manga use "Holo" instead of "Horo". The Japanese seem consistently determined about this.

One thing I've learned is that the alphabet has a *visual* component to Japanese that people raised with the alphabet don't think about (unless they're calligraphy buffs or study archaic English). There are romaji systems that use "l" instead of "r" ... they're just older and somewhat out of favor as they tend to encourage poorER pronunciation of words by foreigners. Japanese themselves are saying the same "l-d-r" noise whether they write "l" or "r".

A lot of time anymore I just write "ホロ” instead of "Horo" or "Holo" anymore -- just remember its said the same way no matter how its approximated with phonetic characters.

Ah yes, the l-d-r spectrum... one of those letters seldom does a Nih. word adequate justice in pronunciation.

And Vexx is right, Holo is Horo is ホロ. It's all the same to me. But of course remember, SHE does spell it Holo.

CM's Horo is up for pre-order!

I want her but she's extremely overpriced! I can get higher quality MaxFactory or GSC figures for that much money, not lousy CM...

Ahhh... She may be a bit expensive, but it is Holo! So to me at least, she is worth every yen!
I preordered yesterday!

Ahhh, there is a hand puppet of him and a mini figure. I'd get one if they made one, but he'd be set off in the corner (I don't want to look at a dude)... but not as far in the corner my mini Norah figure. Hahaha. I mean Norah is nice and all, but Holo beats her NO CONTEST!

It's more interesting for me to look at figures Horo with Lawrence together then single Horo.
May be i'm alone in my opinion )

No... I always prefer figure sets of *all* the major cast members, but the grim market economics say its the females most likely to be sculpted as figures. A few series have included male figures but they're somewhat unusual (outside of kid's shounen action shows).

Hey, all I'm saying is that Holo's mine. Lawrence isn't getting her in my house. Haha.

And summoner, to answer your question, I own them but have not played them. I don't have a DS at this time (and haven't had time to play anyway)... I hope to start working on the both of them later this year.

I display them together too, they look better that way



Only got one of the 9 possible Horo's of this set. Couldn't afford them al at the time.

I pre-ordered that new one. The Volks and Goodsmile ones from years ago are also good but near impossible to find and so overpriced wherever they appear. So at least I can finally have a Horo in my collection.

Nora doesnt look like Nora at all. And Horo's mouth is at least twice as big as Nora's or Lawrence bit weird.

I couldn't help it; I put in my preorder yesterday as well. I think the model has pretty good quality, at least from the pictures. Plus, I needed another Holo. Two figures just aren't enough.

The Kotobukiya Horo is getting a re-release in September, it would seem!
Might get!
