With regards to Sister Rosette from Chrono Crusade: Not all Christian churches require celibacy from their priests. (Christianity Is Catholic, anyone?)

It is mentioned, I think in Azmaria's Lessons, that while they were Nunnish outfits, the Magdelene Order is not Catholic but rather non/multi-denominational.

Removed non-example:
  • Reversed in the American localization of Ace Attorney, where the Hazakura miko actually refers to herself as a nun despite displaying no qualities of the Catholic Church ever at all.
    • They're not supposed to be miko in the first place; they are Buddhist nuns.

Can we use the bottom half of this picture (possibly switching the end result to a clearer picture of the character) as a picture for this page?

Can we please change the name of this page to "Nuns are Miko"? It is usual, with foreign words in English, to follow the conventions of the original language - thus one radius, two radii, not two radiuses. With Japanese nouns that's tricky because most nouns don't have plurals in Japanese, but then it's usual to either pretend the singular and plural forms are the same (one haiku, two haiku) or treat them as mass (non-countable) nouns (some anime, more anime; just like some water, more water). A few words that have been heavily assimilated seem to be exceptions - for instance, one kimono, two kimonos. Anyway, in summary, "mikos" makes me cringe, and I think one miko, two miko is the best usage.
