Why are we spelling Senpai wrong for this title?

We are using Kodansha Comics' official English title for the series:

It's not wrong, it's just more of an old fashioned way of romanising ん (n) when followed by ば (b), ぱ(p), or ま(m) line sounds in the Hepburn style. For example you may also newspapers called shimbun, even though the more modern way would be shinbun. Neither is wrong, it's just there's a few different romanisation methods out there.

Did anyone almost read that as MINORU Suzuki instead of Minoru Suzuki? I sure almost did.

? I think the other one is misspelled... (the first one I assume is the wrestler and the other the singer named in the article?)
