Her signature in the anime did show up as "Holo" and also that is how the author intended to be (as confirmed by YenPress for their light novel release).
Image Of course, as in any other forums, it will still come down to two camps. One that accepts official spelling and the other that prefers it to be spelled as per pronunciation.
Horo is a wolf by nature, and you can tell that she's not accustomed to writing in human tongue. Her writing is not that significant proof, when I cursive my 'l's, they can look like 'r's sometimes, as can most of my other letters.
I'd actually be more surprised that she could sign her name. The first 'o' could be taken by the unwary glace to be an 'r'

Edit: I'm realizing that there are adherents to both sides of the argument, I'm sticking to my side of it mostly because my own name can fall on both sides of the line as well.
Also because translators sometimes make easy mistakes to make.

I'm simply trying to provide an answer which proves a compromise for both sides to be happy, this is not the type of argument that needs to be fought over little bits.

Yeah, in regular programming, it would be easy, but this is Excel programming. Short of using 2 cells to represent 1 character, which would make things very inconsistent to look at since Excel is visual, there isn't really an easy way. All I'm saying is that if you want your vote for Horo to count, then put down Holo. If you see the spreadsheets that I'm working with, then trust me, you'll agree that I don't need more work and add in exceptions.

I'll point out that the Japanese have been described as notoriously bad when it comes to "r" and "l" Especially "l". Take Galaxy Express 999 (or "three-nine" as they say it) heroine Maetel. It is repeatedly pronounced Maetel in every single episode or film in Japanese...yet it gets translated as Maeter at lot, reportedly because it is suppose to mean "mother" in some language...and Romance language based words using "la" tend to be pronounced "ra".

Here are the pre-period scores. A score of 0 is based on the lowest possible points achieved based on simulated rankings (164). As we all know, these scores may change drastically:

Well technically I could claim the prize since I am Simul and it's already very desirable, even to staff. But I'll have to think about that. I don't think Simul will come close to winning though, at least not according to 2009 Fantasy.

Also, please check the table to see if you are listed. If not, then my script doesn't like you, and you'll have to tell me.

Somehow I don't think the Simulation has enough data just yet to be accurate. It might have relatively good data on the some of the veterans and then some data on the new entries....but not enough data to compare the two without a lot a margin for error.

That and we don't know yet what factions are waiting in the wings this time around.

Yeah, that's why I think Simul will not come close. I just posted these stats so TRE and SirWence can feel bad.

lol <3 I don't feel to bad , I finished decently enough in the Double Elim though I would have preferred better and I still had some gripes at the end lmao. But as for this one.. well I guess we will just see what happens its the prelims as long as I get the specific people I want in... I will be happy (and if I can see some I dislike knocked out also all the better lol)

I find it amusing that even though I'm in the last place, I'm only a few behind SirWence. This is my first year participating, so I really can't tell if it's a good thing or bad.

Haha, me being ranked 3 in this simulation is a guarantee of inaccuracy considering my abysmal performance in last year's fantasy. My goal this time around is not ending in the last 3 spots.

I'm looking forward to the first rounds so we'll see how the 3-way matches affect the results.
