This is an interesting observation...
I speak a bit of Japanese and in some cases you might be correct about the number 2, but in this case it's different...
The first three large characters read: MA
All together (Majutsushi
) meaning Magician
, of course.
Underneath the three large characters, the smaller characters read: NI
All together (Nikoro Makyaberi
) meaning Niccolo Machiavelli
The character NI (used in NIKORO) is often used for the number 2, but as seen here it is used as part of a name.
And on another note, it seems a bit misleading to me that Niccolo Machiavelli's name is underneath "Magician". I was under the impression that Dr. John Dee is the magician of the family, seeing as he's constantly referred to as...the magician.
Hope that was interesting to someone!
