#strokes of the name = Luck

In the very first episode of SZS we see how the main character comments his name has a number of strokes related to bad luck.

That's a real thing in Japanese culture (it comes from China, I think).
This type of adivination seems to be called "姓名判断" -“Seimei Handan”-. Check an English explanation in here.

So, is the Japanese name of your character a lucky name?
(_Note_ Just ignore the results if they end as bad luck! Don't take it seriously.)

How to get it:

1)Japanese order is used: First family name and then name.
For example: 唄音ウタ (defoko's name)

2)Check the number of strokes of each character. You could use this dictionary for the Kanji and for kana this spoiler.

゛ Dakuten: +2
゜ Handakuten: +1

For our example: 唄(10)音(9)ウ(3)タ(3)

3)You make five operations of addition.
①Only the surname: 唄(10)+音(9) = 19
(There are as many character as the surname has.)
②Only last character of the surname with first of the name: 音(9)+ウ(3) = 12
If any has only one character, that character counts.
(There are only two character in this operation.)
③Name: ウ(3)+タ(3) = 6
(There are as many character as the name has.)
④This one is tricky. For the surname every character except for the last one and all of the name except the first one (the outside). For our example: 唄(10)+タ(3) = 13
BUT, if the surname or the name has only one character that character counts (so, the minimum of characters used is two).
⑤All the characters: 唄(10)+音(9)+ウ(3)+タ(3) = 25

If any of the operations is bigger than 80, subtract 80 until it's less or the same as 80.

4) Check the luck in this list (paste from here):
最大吉(Sai Dai Kichi) : Super Excellent — 6, 15, 24, 31, 47 and 63.
大吉(Dai Kichi) : Very Good — 1, 3, 5, 11, 13, 16, 21, 23, 29, 32, 33, 37, 39, 41, 45, 52, 65, 67 and 68.
吉(Kichi) : Good — 7, 8, 17, 18, 25, 35, 38, 48, 57, 58, 61, 71, 73, 75, 77 and 78.
凶(Kyou) : Not Good — 14, 22, 26, 27, 28, 30, 42, 43, 46, 49, 50, 51, 53, 55, 56, 59, 72 and 74.
大凶(Dai Kyou): Bad — 2, 4, 12, 34, 36, 40, 44, 54, 60, 62, 64, 66, 69, 70, 76, 79 and 80.
最大凶(Sai Dai Kyou) : Very Bad — 9, 10, 19 and 20.

NOTE: It seems Chinese names goes up to 81 and uses this chart.

RESULT:
① is how lucky is the family. Defoko (19) has a very unlucky family. :holy--:
② is talent, will. (12) means she has a weak will. :blink:
③ is general personality until around 30s. (6) is super Super Excellent luck.:sing:
④ is the personal interaction in social situations. (13) means she's very good socially.:shades:
⑤ is total luck (specially after 30s). Her (25) is normal good.:tongue:

I tried my real Chinese name for this using the Chinese name chart. For my surname, it's unlucky, for my first name (both characters individually and together) are both bad luck. For all the strokes combined, it's also bad luck D:
