Name Clarification

Kimihide Sumi issue.png

Chapter 6 is where this character is referred to by Oriko as "Kimihide" Mikuni and Kirika attacks him. However Chapter 13 then refers to him as "Sumi", and again this happens in Chapter 17 on TV calling him "Sumi" Mikuni and this is clearly the same character as Kirika recognizes him as Oriko's uncle. I'm not sure if I'm missing something and Kimihide is just a nickname and Sumi is his real name or if this is some translation error. I'd like some clarification on this because if his name is Sumi then the page name needs to change from Kimihide Mikuni to Sumi Mikuni. -The Witch's House (talk) 15:00, 1 September 2020 (UTC)

From the Pixiv Dictionary, I found this: 父・久臣、母・由良子、祖父・修一郎、伯父(久臣の兄)・公秀、叔母(久臣の妹)・寿美 Father - Hisaomi, Mother - Yurako, Uncle (Hisaomi's Older Brother) Kimihide, and Aunt - Sumi (Hisaomi's Younger Sister). So the Sumi thing is just an error, and Sumi is the aunt of Oriko. --Prinpop (talk) 17:56, 1 September 2020 (UTC)

P.S. I should also note that, in the case of the top right screenshot, it seems like the one who is saying "It's been a long time, Sumi" is Kimihide, not the aunt, since the aunt is saying "Of course it has been, Big Brother, you've been avoiding me." So it seems like the part where he is called Sumi on TV is an error. --Prinpop (talk) 18:08, 1 September 2020 (UTC)

Thank you. I kinda figured this was the case but it confused me considering it happens again in the 4th volume and I just wanted to be sure. Such a weird error. -The Witch's House (talk) 07:28, 2 September 2020 (UTC)
