Here's my list:

1. Grees Royal Inner-Palace High School
2. Galactic Canon Boarding School
3. Mesa - Luminas Institute
4. Filmore Empire Imperial Guard School
5. Knight High School Bay Point
6. Wind High School
7. Baltic Academy
8. Hathuhunt National Svas Palace Girls High School
9. Gasgaru Union National Pariah High School

#2 - I was in the dark on how to render this so I went with something vague and respectable-sounding. My guess is the AKD wants to have a vague name for their diver training academy. They don't want such a school attracting attention. "Hey, folks! Divers here! Mind control and exploding heads!" Not the kind of thing they want getting out, you know?

#6 - This school is on Juno and we've seen before how many people on Juno have a refined appreciation for nature and the elements. So I went with "wind."

#9 I've been wrong before but I think Nagano is having a joke with this school. Tomoe is an underhanded ninja who stabs people in the back and fights dirty. Thus "pariah" is in the name. Also, Tomoe's high school picture makes her look sweet and innocent. As if a gentle, impressionable girl was made into a monster by a school run by pariahs.

Anyway, that's my attempt at bringing these names into English.

Once I have character name spelling nailed down I'll have this project done.

Nobody pointed me out, but I typed ウィンド wrong twice.
It's U-I-N-Do or Windo.
So Wind would be a very valid reading of that word. :)

Very nice.

So what about the guys high schools?

Its interesting that Nagano has chosen to do a book on the schools.

A long time ago (around when volume 10 came out) I was considering doing an "alternate timeline" Fanfic about several of the characters in their high-school careers. Basically it was going to revolve around Sarion, Jhon and Jackos going to the same school and all competing for "Top Headdliner" priviledge. There was also going to be a sub-plot of rival schools competing in traditional fencing and martial arts competitions and of course since it was going to be set on Both, Bughtama was going to rear its ugly head.

I thought of this even before Nagano did Promenade in Newtype.
Shinei!

Sounds like a cool idea. Perhaps Nagano will do a School Designs 2 with male characters.

I've thought off and on about a fanfic featuring a new character serving in the AKD. Trouble is, after doing a few memorable scenes I don't really know where the story would go from there.
