Is there a translation available for her doppel yet? Kraftholo (talk) 15:27, 14 June 2018 (UTC)

Regarding Mifuyu's weapon

So, in the Magia Archive, her weapon is called 円月輪. aka the "Round Lunar Hoop" as its referred to on the wiki. However, the reason why Shizuku's weapon is called チャクラム (chakram) and Mifuyu's 円月輪 (Engetsurin) relates to origin. Chakram refers to the Indian weapon, while the Engetsurin is a chakram of Japanese/Chinese origin, used by ninjas. I'm wondering if it might be easier to call Mifuyu's weapon a "Japanese Chakram" and maybe add something about this in the trivia section in regards as to why Shizuku's/Mifuyu's weapons are considered different. Alternatively, we could call it the "Engetsurin" or do it Final Fantasy style, where we can call it the Moonring Blade. --Prinpop (talk) 16:31, 2 July 2020 (UTC)

Moonring Blade sounds better if only because it is in keeping with the moon theme that Mifuyu has (her illusions in the anime and in her magia attack reference the full moon while Yachiyo and Mifuyu's soul gems have a recurring Moon/Sun theme). That would work better and we can put a wiki link for the Engetsurin on the weapon the way we do for the other pages. Sondenise (talk) 17:19, 2 July 2020 (UTC)
The only problem is, is that there's really not a Wikipedia page for the Moonring Blade. It's mentioned in the Japanese Wikipedia page, but it's mentioned on the page for Chakram. (Which, to be honest, the differences between the Moonring Blade and Chakram are sorta subtle, but you can even see it on Mifuyu's/Shizuku's weapon: Moonring Blades tend to be more of a big circle, simpler, and smaller handle. Chakrams are a bit smaller, with chunkier/more noticeable handle. It seems that most Japanese people prefer to use "Chakram" to refer to the Moonring Blade, minus Final Fanatasy weirdly enough..
