Chapter 56:

  The year was 132 E.T. Sora was too good for me. They were all too good for me. I couldn't be with any of them remotely as much as they deserved. But I had come up with a brilliant stratagem to alleviate the concern. That morning at the breakfast table I stood up energetically to make my announcement: "At this point we may as well make it a tenth!"

  "You remembered!" Mitsuki clapped her hands together, equally surprised and overjoyed. Indeed I had. Back in the Fafnir days that had been her stated child target with me, and now I was finally able to grant her wish. Her love for me had always been that red hot, to the point that it had taken me 132 years to match it, one of infinite reasons I had picked her in the first place, but all 132 years were worth it for the instant I glimpsed that heartfelt smile.

  Of course, not everyone was as enthusiastic, but observing Mitsuki's reaction no one had the heart to object, so the motion was passed without further ado. Sae gave me a tired smile while Nekone beat her forehead against the varnished tabletop repeatedly.

  Not only did I desire a round number of children, not only did I want to keep Yui feeling needed for as long as I could, not only did I want to conquer the galaxy, not only did I believe children to be a genuinely enjoyable blessing for all involved, I also wanted to incarnate some more wonderful fictional characters into this world who had every right to be here.

  This time around I concentrated on manga, movie, tv and video game characters who may never have gotten a good anime adaption but were nevertheless memorable people deserving of recognition.

  For example, I felt Ai and Junichi from Junai Sensation were perfectly placed as the children of Asa and Yoru. Both were examples of 'isshin doutai.'

  Zettai Karen Children, Prince of Tennis, Hinowa ga Yuku, Negima, Honzuki no Gekokujou, Xanth and even Niji-iro Tohgarashi received some love.

  On the tenth try Cheria finally gave birth to her first daughter. Maybe that's why she'd been so grumpy up until now?

  Haruka #5 was from Idolm@ster. Aya #3 was from Parasite Eve. Yuri #3 was from Alien Nine. Chisato #3 was from Major. Hiro #2 and Lucia #2 were from Lunar 2. Elizabeth #2 was from Freezing. Mitsuki #2 was from Full Moon O Sagashite. Izumi #2 was from I"s. Simon #2 was from Firefly. You try naming 1,000 kids without doubling up.

  There wasn't an exact 1:1 correspondence between the number of names a franchise accrued and its objective worth, but there was certainly a strong correlation.

  All in all the ratio stood at 405 sons to 600 daughters, roughly 40%. Not as unbalanced as one would think. Maybe there really was a place for boys in this world. Certainly a far cry from the 101:1 balance of my own marriage.

  63 of my significant others' names originated from outside of Japan, the other 1043 originated inside of Japan. That was pretty much the correct weighting between Japan's worth compared to the rest of Earth.

  Out of my 1106 significant others:

  7 were named Rin, (7 girls)

  6 Sakura, (6 girls)

  5 Akane, (5 girls)

  5 Ai, (5 girls)

  5 Haruka, (5 girls)

  5 Saki, (5 girls)

  4 Aoi, (1 boy 3 girls)

  4 Alice, (4 girls)

  3 Mio, (3 girls)

  3 Yui, (3 girls)

  3 Momo, (3 girls)

  3 Karen, (3 girls)

  3 Aya, (3 girls)

  3 Kotori, (3 girls)

  3 Rika, (3 girls)

  3 Shino, (1 boy 2 girls)

  3 Kaya, (3 girls)

  3 Misaki, (3 girls)

  3 Mizuki, (1 boy 2 girls)

  3 Akari, (3 girls)

  3 Yuri, (1 boy 2 girls)

  3 Kanata, (1 boy 2 girls)

  3 Hinata, (3 girls)

  3 Nagisa, (3 girls)

  3 Chisato, (3 girls)

  3 Yuuki, (1 boy 2 girls)

  3 Hayate, (2 boys 1 girl)

  2 Hikari, (2 girls)

  2 Itsuki, (2 girls)

  2 Mai, (2 girls)

  2 Junichi, (2 boys)

  2 Jun'ichi, (2 boys)

  2 Yukino, (2 girls)

  2 Makoto, (1 boy 1 girl)

  2 Minato, (1 boy 1 girl)

  2 Alicia, (2 girls)

  2 Vivi, (1 boy 1 girl)

  2 Yume, (2 girls)

  2 Gin, (1 boy 1 girl)

  2 Yuu, (1 boy 1 girl)

  2 Nami, (2 girls)

  2 Shion, (2 girls)

  2 Usagi, (2 girls)

  2 Aoba, (2 girls)

  2 Honoka, (2 girls)

  2 Sena, (2 girls)

  2 Sora, (1 boy 1 girl)

  2 Kobato, (2 girls)

  2 Miyuki, (2 girls)

  2 Asuna, (2 girls)

  2 Miu, (2 girls)

  2 Shiori, (2 girls)

  2 Subaru, (1 boy 1 girl)

  2 Lala, (2 girls)

  2 Hikaru, (1 boy 1 girl)

  2 Meredy, (2 girls)

  2 Akito, (2 boys)

  2 Miho, (2 girls)

  2 Yusuke, (2 boys)

  2 Reina, (2 girls)

  2 Hibiki, (1 boy 1 girl)

  2 Haruhi, (2 girls)

  2 Nene, (2 girls)

  2 Charles, (2 girls)

  2 Ruri, (2 girls)

  2 Edge, (2 boys)

  2 Chihiro, (2 girls)

  2 Madoka, (2 girls)

  2 Simon, (2 boys)

  2 Kyou, (2 girls)

  2 Mirai, (2 girls)

  2 Minami, (2 girls)

  2 Komari, (2 girls)

  2 Oboro, (1 boy 1 girl)

  2 Fuu, (2 girls)

  2 Rebecca, (2 girls)

  2 Fuko, (2 girls)

  2 Megumi, (2 girls)

  2 Miki, (2 girls)

  2 Iori, (2 girls)

  2 Rinne, (1 boy 1 girl)

  2 Leia, (2 girls)

  2 Io, (2 girls)

  2 Ichigo, (1 boy 1 girl)

  2 Elizabeth, (2 girls)

  2 Kaoru, (1 boy 1 girl)

  2 Mitsuki, (2 girls)

  2 Rio, (1 boy 1 girl)

  2 Lucia, (2 girls)

  2 Cid, (2 boys)

  2 Hiro, (2 boys)

  2 Yuna, (2 girls)

  2 Shinobu, (2 girls)

  2 Ren (1 boy 1 girl)

  2 Natsu (2 boys)

  2 Izumi (2 girls)

  2 Ryoma (2 boys)

  2 Nodoka, (2 girls)

  2 Hina, (2 girls)

  2 Kanon, (2 girls)

  2 Nia, (2 girls)

  2 Kasumi, (2 girls)

  2 Sousuke, (2 boys)

  2 Haruhiko, (2 boys)

  2 Charlotte, (2 girls)

  2 Claude, (2 boys)

  2 Hotaru, (2 girls)

        2 Ruby, (2 girls)

  and the rest (the remaining 852) had unique names. Though to be fair, many of those names were spelled differently but were pronounced exactly the same, so it was hard to say just how unique they really were. Taking those into account:

  Kyousuke/Kyosuke, (2 boys)

  Chrono/Crono, (2 boys)

  Yuji/Yuuji, (2 boys)

  Yuki/Yuuki, (1 boy 3 girls)

  Yuri/Yuuri, (1 boy 3 girls)

  Yuna/Yuuna, (3 girls)

  Shirou/Shiro, (1 boy 1 girl)

  Sera/Sara/Serah, (3 girls)

  Coco/Koko, (1 boy 1 girl)

  Ricca/Rikka/Rika, (5 girls)

  Sherria/Cheria, (2 girls)

  Cana/Kanna/Kana, (3 girls)

  Kyrie/Kirie, (2 girls)

  Riku/Rikku, (1 boy 1 girl)

  Mine/Myne, (2 girls)

  Kou/Ko, (1 boy 1 girl)

  Ryo/Ryou, (1 boy 1 girl)

  Touma/Toma, (2 boys)

  Kurou/Kuro, (1 boy 1 girl)

  Lloyd/Loid, (2 boys)

  there were actually only 813 unique names. Out of 1106 that was still over 70% so not bad. On Earth as well it was common for popular names to be widely shared. And with the addition of middle, last and nicknames, everyone was safely individually identifiable again.

  It felt like a lot of overlap, but once you understood their different franchise origins and got to know them better it really wasn't that difficult to distinguish them. Aoba from New Game and Aoba from Cross Game were very different people.

  I had a long lifespan, so the challenge of getting to know and hang out with each and every one of these wives and children would do a good job of keeping me occupied. I'd only scraped the surface of my potential relationships, not only with my kids, but even with my wives. Though I'd lived here for 142 years, that essentially meant I'd been dating each of my wives for less than two years. We were still practically on our honeymoons. The power of polygamy was truly a fearsome thing.
