What does Misa-Misa's Name Mean? How does the Kanji for Misa Amane REALLY translate into English?  (Guest Post by Amaryllis)

The kanji for Misa Amane should be quite straight-forward. But its not.Both are reasonably common names in Japan.  Enough that none would blink at encountering  an individual bearing the surname Amane, though it's not one of the topmost family names.  More a marginal, decently sized minority.Amane is actually more often found as a first name, applicable for males and females alike.They certainly wouldn't fain surprise at bumping into a Japanese lady or [...]

Moreover, she's never positively identified as Second Kira; let alone officially arrested, tried and punis [...]
