Japanese Covers for the Song of Ice and Fire Books

It seems to me the Japanese covers of the Song of Ice and Fire books by George R. R. Martin should be more famous on the Internet, uniquely Japanese as they are. Despite the existence of these books, I've never met a Japanese GRRM fan and have to say there's essentially zero awareness of the books here. Presumably that will change when the Game of Thrones drama is shown on WOWOW or NHK or whoever picks it up.

Possibly spoiler warning if you've not read the books (and if not, stop reading this and go do so now!)
John Snow, with direwolf.
Bran climbing, I presume.
 Davos Seaworth.

Daenerys on Silver.
Tyrion. Looks kind of lame.
Not sure here. Lady Selyse? A boring Melisandre, if that's her.

Ned Stark, I would assume.

Bran and Summer.

My first thought would be Melisandre, but it's Feast for Crows so Cersei?

Not sure on this one. This is Storm of Swords.Weird child-Tyrion in the Eerie?
