I agree. It's the Japanese confusion of L's and R's. In the show, the
pronounciation is closest to Loran...
Sort of like, they used "Sayla" in First Gundam, when it's really a kana
rendition of the name "Sarah".
BTW, I finally got to watch the first 8 episodes of Turn A. The character
design and the animation took some getting used to, but I rather like it.
(I could NEVER get used to the opening theme, however. It's really bad.)
Anyone else with any opinions on the show?
