- It would've been cool to have cyan,magenta,yellow represent Q, Jo, Ha
- But cyan+magenta+yellow = black, not white (subtractive model -- e.g. printer ink)
- In the additive model on the other hand, red+green+blue = white (LED lights)
- Red, green, blue are on the color spectrum but magenta isn't -- it's a primary color in the subtractive color model.
That's a really good point. I was thinking Ha should have been yellow, but as you note that would result in black, not white. Maybe the idea was to break NGE into its primary colors, then color shift them and remix them to get Final!
But of course orange isn't primary for either model so that's right out anyway.
Also worth noting that the additive colors of each group are the secondary colors of the other. So green and red make yellow, red and blue make magenta, and blue and green make cyan. Similarly, yellow and magenta make red, magenta and cyan make blue, and cyan and yellow make green. So it's all on the spectrum, but it's just a question of where you're setting your markers for your primary colors.
And orange is a perfectly good spectral colour even if it's not a primary colour in the three-colour models.
Well of course. I'm not sure there's any meaning to it anyway.
