Can anyone tell me if I have the correct transcription for the kanji for this name? Sources give it as 'Kigenta', and I make it 鬼玄丹, but based on the image alone, I'm not very sure of the first character there, and only somewhat sure of the second.
A search for that string of kanji does return a lot of results, so it does seem like it might be correct (although perhaps the correct reading is different from 'Kigenta').
Sorry about the poor quality of the image; this is the best I have of this print. It's #8 (B+V numbers) from Yoshitoshi's series 'Tales of the Floating World on Eastern Brocade'; here:
is an image of the print if needed. As usual, thanks in advance for any help!
