Excellent find Peter!

It is worth noting this quote, "Royceâ â as you must have noticed while
reading the name â ends with an apostrophe. Thatâs to make the name spell
six letters, since the Japanese consider six lettered names lucky."

This is an example where the apostrophe isn't being used as a diacritical
mark but rather, as an anachronistic glyph.

In this case, I think Jay's question is valid.

This is awesome!
