To be fair, the whole Finland thing was a retcon for GDWO. XD

According to Ginga Wikia here https://ginga.fandom.com/wiki/Akame_(Ukon) with Ukon's and other ancestor's cases, they were all ''Akames'', but their birth names were different.
So, what is Akame's ( :akame: ) original name?

We don't know.

Even the group shot that shows the "previous Akames" only lists Akame as Akame, which could imply that his name just plain is Akame.

Either that, or that his original name is not relevant.

As the japanese have more info:

That info is also in the Finnish version, I just edited it out because I felt too lazy to translate it :tfw_orion1:

In GNG Wolf Arc, Do Gin and Others just decide to keep Riki's corpse like this? It's so weird.

Yes. GDR also shows Riki's body being kept preserved in Gajou and says that "a saint of dog-kind rests there", so I guess them keeping it around is a respect/reverence thing.

Image

According to Meteor Gin, the cold mountain air essentially mummified him, which is why his body wouldn't decay. Which isn't really how mummification works, but it's a better explanation than nothing, I guess.

Thank you. I must miss it when I read GDR. So... his body might be gone when Gajou got bombed in Hougen Arc. :tfw_sirius5:

There are open air tombs in Turkey, located high up mountains, where they used to keep dead bodies. A graveyard, but up in mountains.
I'm guessing this Riki way is meant to be something similar?

Where in the manga is it stated that Hyōma is the adopted son of Reima?



Also, need help with this still.

I have a question: Daisuke's friend.

Where is his name stated in manga? If ever? In anime I hear Shinji and not Shinsuke (like it says on Gingapedia and GingaWiki, and reason for asking is to get it right).

During Hyouma and Goldeye's battle in volume 17, page 43, Reima admits that "It's true that I'm not Hyouma's father. I've kept it a secret from everyone, except for Noroi, who saw a true male in Hyouma." Also, for what it's worth, on page 42 Goldeye wonders if he and Hyouma could be "half-brothers with the same father" because of their shared ability to summon and see in thick fog.

No idea about the second question, though.

So I woke up at around 3 am to find this on twitter. Ginga_soul retweeted it:

https://twitter.com/320eppoy/status/123 ... 88385?s=21

Is this a brand new cover for Vol. 1? It looks like 3 covers on 1. Is it real?

I woke up that early because I don’t know. :yama1:

Looks like it's the cover for a Kindle bundle for volumes 1-3 of GNG.
