    Yeah, I noticed that too. The official spelling is Quinze too, I believe.
Or at least it was in the Japanese version. Not sure about Sank / Cinq, but
that's interesting. And aside for all the usage of numbers, there's a whole
lotta horoscope signs. Libra, Aries, Cancer, Leo, Pisces, Virgo, yadda yadda.
I wonder whats up with this and the French numbers.. Anyone know?
