Here’s a bit of trivia related to the old Japanese calendar names~
In the Ghibli film Tonari no Totoro, there was originally only going to be one girl as a main character. As the story-writing progressed, though, it was decided that there would be two sisters instead. If you look at their names, you can find a hidden reference to this fact that they were originally going to be one person: the older sister’s name is Satsuki, the old Japanese name for the month of May, and the younger sister’s name is Mei, a romaji rendition of the English name of the same month.
