Kirika and Oriko Ages

I remember quite distinctly there being a panel in one of the Oriko Magica mangas that showed Kirika's body in front of a tombstone, showing she was born in 1995 (which I also noted in her character Trivia page), not 1996, which would make her age most likely 16, if not 15 if she died before her birthday. Unfortunately, for some reason, while reading through the mangas online I can't find that panel at all.

I also believe there have been other instances of manga characters' ages being retconned in Magia Record (the Suzune Magica characters, I believe?), but I can't remember for cerrain. If they are, however, it would be precedence for such a thing being possible for Kirika and Oriko. --Garr9988 (talk) 21:42, 12 May 2021 (UTC)

Honestly, Garr9988, you're quite right to be curious, as I was, but I went and looked for myself. Even bought the original manga for myself online and started poring over it. Check it out: from chapter 6 of the original manga.

I suspect the reason people thought it to be 1995 is just that, given the font, it's easy to mix up a 5 and a 6, especially when you're dealing with grainy scans and small panels. Also, Kirika and Oriko do have an "older" vibe. --MBG (talk) 00:10, 13 May 2021 (UTC)

Ah, that does look like 1996 now that you point it out. Apologies for being rude, thank you for correcting me and the issue! --Garr9988 (talk) 13:48, 13 May 2021 (UTC)
