KIZUMONOGATARI: Wound Tale - Cristina Vee, Eric Kimerer, Keith Silverstein, Vertical Music, NisiOisiN

Apparently, weird character names are considered a feature of NisiOsiN's writing. The worst offender so far, in my opinion, is Kiss-shot Acerola-orion Heart-under-blade, "the iron-blooded, hot-blooded, yet cold-blooded vampire." (I wish all the characters would stop saying this whole thing. Please. I imagine the poor narrators felt the same way.)

 

There's another one that made me laugh, though, mostly because I misheard the name the first few times. What I heard: Drama Turkey. The character's actual name: Dramaturgy.
