Why Luka is written as Koruka?

Haha, "Hatune".
Well, "hatune" is in kunrei-transliteration the same as "hatsune" in hepburn-transliteration.
While it looks unusual, it's correct and pronounced the same.

As much as I agree with you as a fluent Japanese speaker, official VOCALOID retail boxes have the romaji spelled out has "Hatsune". I could spell a part of my name with an "ey" instead of "ei" on my SATs, but I'd still lose points.
People decide how to spell their own names (or names of their characters, or names of their children). The "murata_renji" tag is a serious lump of braindamage I just noticed on Danbooru the other day; they seem to be willfully ignoring what the author himself consistently writes...

it was correct 50 years ago..
Japanese schools are no more teaching kunrei-romanization. Japanese using it are living-deads, or just forget they have learned ┐('~`;)┌
