The DP for the .hack//GU Trilogy movie is "二塚 万佳" and while there's a few possibilities for the family name, I am really struggling with the given name.
For all the four readings of the family name, Google has only for one a hit together with the kanji string, and that is http://www.mata-web.com/japon/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=428&catid=22&Itemid=6 (french) which says:
Quote:
Direction de la caméra : Taka FUTATSUKA (二塚万佳)

(No idea how they got the reading of "Taka" though.)

IMDB says: "Kazuyoshi Futatsuka" (which would at least be a legal reading for the separate kanji).

Another french page agrees with the IMDB reading.

Anyone care to officianate on 福永収?

収 has three possible readings and between us we've got them all.

I just entered him as Shū Fukunaga..

..then discovered he'd been named in a news article as "Atsumu Fukunaga"..

..then when I was about to remove and re-enter my credit I found him again as Osamu Fukunaga (which I would have found in the first place had whoever created this person added the Kanji).

Allcinema has no hiragana for this person, and Google has no usable hit for "福永収" "ふくなが" (the 4 results are all for 福永収佑).

Then again, Wikipedia has a number of persons with 収 as given name of which the top 9 all have the reading おさむ = Osamu before we get the first しゅう= Shuu.

Osamu Fukunaga's source backs up the kanji 福永 収 (whitespace-separated) so I'd like to see them there (and perhaps those for Shuu in round brackets?).

Well, that's two votes for Osamu then so moved my credit there and added the Kanji.
Including the news article we are now down to only two variations.

Eh, no. It was down for only 6 hours and seems to be working just fine now. Hardly worth mentioning and this has nothing do with name reading....

転房圭二
Anyone have any idea on the family name? Given that the only thing this person has ever done seems to be Storyboard in Mahoraba and Best Student Council, I'm guessing this is someone's alias. Japanese message board posts seem to suggest it is an alias credit of しまづ聡行 (who is a bit of a mess right now too, with three different name entries using the same kana and kanji), but I doubt that's anything officially confirmed.

Of names starting 転 the readings used are Goro/Koro- and Ten- (with the latter being most popular). Names ending 房 read it as -bou or -fusa/busa, with the latter looking most common.
I think "Tenbou" is the only combination that is an actual valid name (albeit normally with different Kanji), but that's still mostly guesswork.

てんぼう seems to be the only thing that turns up anything in conjunction on Google. Only like two real hits, though, and I don't think either are in reference to a person's name. Given the rest of the potential combinations seem to give me nothing at all, this is probably the best that can be done with a likely pseudonymous name like this: went ahead and created Keiji Tenbō.

阿部晃瑳詞

Abe... something. This name comes from the ending credits of Blue Sonnet.





The weird part is that I could only find one meager link mentioning the name above. The character design is given to 中山勝一 (Katsuichi Nakayama) in ja.wikipedia, allcinema.net, and in the English translations.





Could this be an alias?

Very similar thing happens to the mechanical design. The name that appears in the credits is 藤臣宗光 (Fujiomi Munemitsu?), but online the name that pops up is 山下将仁 (Masahito Yamashita)

While contributing credits for Kimikiss Pure Rouge, there were a couple of credits I didn't manage to map onto already existing persons at ANN and didn't dare to create new persons by merely guessing.

In case anyone is interesting in filling up the gaps, they would be:
原画:手島宏 (ep 8)
原画:神宮美代子 (ep 9)
原画:星二徹 (ep 15,22)
原画:清野紘一郎 (ep 2)
原画:善次郎 (ep 20)
制作進行:古田裕郷 (ep 2)
制作進行:小原帆奈 (ep 2,9,16,17,23)
制作進行:松尾知紗 (ep 7)
制作進行:樋口翼 (ep 8)
作画監督:鐘堕詠慈 (ep 2,7)
デジタル特効:田中唯己朗 (ep 7)
動画:高麗友紀 (ep 1-3,5-6,9,13-14,19-21,23-24)

原画:手島宏 (ep 8)
I think Hiroshi Teshima or Tejima. There may be no other option but to guess on the family name. Not sure which is more common.

原画:神宮美代子 (ep 9)
Miyoko Jingū

原画:星二徹 (ep 15,22)
http://aomura.hp.infoseek.co.jp/staff/key.html
If this is the same person who was a programmer for Key at one time (maybe, since this is a game-related title, and I don't think this would be a common person's name), then this site indicates:
Nitetsu Hoshi
Are you able to check the original credits to see if it shows his name is split up?

原画:清野紘一郎 (ep 2)
Kōichirō Seino (or Kiyono? Going to have to make a guess on this one too) Could be a pseudonym or a mistaken transcription due to lack of Google hits.

原画:善次郎 (ep 20)
Zenjirō (probably a different person from the existing Zenjiro so a split request will be needed)

制作進行:古田裕郷 (ep 2)
There is one credit for this person as Yugo Furuta. Given my Google searching, I think "Hirosato" would be preferred for his given name, though. I'm coming across more yomigana for actual people searching that...

制作進行:小原帆奈 (ep 2,9,16,17,23)
I guess just go with "Ohara" on 小原 if you can't find anything (that one seems to be awfully ambiguous). 帆奈 can be "Hanna" or "Hona". "Hanna Ohara" if I had to guess... maybe it's an attempt to have a Western-sounding name in kanji?

制作進行:松尾知紗 (ep 7)
Chisa Matsuo

制作進行:樋口翼 (ep 8)
Tsubasa Higuchi

作画監督:鐘堕詠慈 (ep 2,7)
Only thing Google turns up is veceed and marumegane links, but Wikipedia and other sources (including the official site) have 鐘堕咏慈 instead. Don't really have any idea from basic searches just yet. Maybe someone's pseudonym...

デジタル特効:田中唯己朗 (ep 7)
Yukiro Tanaka is probably this person, although he has slightly different kanji entered currently. Imirou Tanaka appears to be the same person as above given this source.

動画:高麗友紀 (ep 1-3,5-6,9,13-14,19-21,23-24)
Yuki Koma (going to have to make a guess on this one)
Yūki KŌRAI has already been created and has several credits but I have doubts about this one, since I can only find "Koma" with Japanese family names on Wikipedia, and has a (p) designation for that reading in ENAMDICT.

Thanks a lot for your help. Everything processed as suggested above; EmperorBrandon's posting set as source for the kanji names of the persons I created.

"星 二徹" is in fact split 1:2 in the original video (ep 22, 22:21 min), so Nitetsu HOSHI would work and I used it.
I went with "Kōichirō KIYONO" based on a 5:2 majority vote at ANN. Hiroshi TEJIMA ended up being a coin toss.

For "KŌRAI" I don't see the "(p)" indicator here:
http://www.df.lth.se/cgi-bin/j-e/jis/S=48/FG=b/BG=w/dosearch?sDict=on&sName=on&H=PW&L=J&T=%1B%24B9bNo%1B%28B&WC=none
The kanji name was backed up by already existing sources therefore I added it in the process.

Err... the "p" just stands for place name... My mistake on that (I though it was indicating the more common reading)

Japanese Wikipedia turned up a few people with the surname and they were all "Koma". It was really hard to dig through them, though, since it seems the kanji mostly refers to Goryeo dynasty of Korea and the majority of entries were not people's names (think I only came across like two or three).

I think we can go with the existing entry, though, as the person's name reading is not likely to have any confirmation soon. That one would take a while to re-add to a new entry, too...
