Name of Star

Hi, I wonder if there is an official transcription for the star that appeared in this episode? Central Anime uses Altmuel, which does not look right in my opinion, so I used Altmühl instead, which sounds similar to the Japanese name and is a name of a river in Germany.

Our canon policy is that, if the spelling of a name appears in English (or, rather, in Roman lettering) in the official subtitles — the ones on the DVDs or whatever — we use that spelling. If it DOESN'T appear in the official subtitles, we are free to make up our own based on our judgement of the Japanese pronunciation and any geographical/historical references that might be relevant. So Altmühl certainly sounds correct to me.
However, i don't have access to the official subs for any of the Gaiden, so i can't say for certain. I think Iracundus might have the DVDs, though — maybe he can look it up?  ♥ kine @ 17:31, 16 January 2013 (UTC)
It is given as Altmül in the DVD features. Iracundus 10:05, 17 January 2013 (UTC)
I see. Thanks! Glacierfairy 13:47, 17 January 2013 (UTC)
