So I own the first two Sinfest books, and I notice that there is a third one.

Now I bought the earlier ones from Amazon, where should I buy this one? I want to buy it from where ever would make Tat look better.

BTW, I think it is cool that he is on his own, and I wonder if some of the reason he hasn't been as regular recently is that he has been saving up for this.

Sinfest is my favorite current comment (I only read WebComics currently, although I would probably read boondocks if I got a newspaper).

No idea on what would make him look better, sorry. =\

I only read a handful of comics nowadays, Sinfest is one of 'em. Tatsuya-sama would probably be more popular if he didn't hole himself up in the clouds, all inaccessible-like. A tad similar to someone else we all know. XD

I'm not sure how much Amazon is charging him, but it's likely more helpful to purchase through Amazon since they track sales, while the CafePress marketplace doesn't so much. The difference in profit margin is likely negligible.

Eh, sorry. The 'Tat' nickname didn't sit right with me, so i went searching for something else.

Y'see, in japanese romanization and hiragana, the consonants in Tatsuya's name go like this:


Ta -- Tsu -- Ya

This being so, "Tatsu" or "Tsuya" or something would have seemed to fit better in a logical sense.

Shortening the name to those i mentioned above is already attempting at making the name sound cute, so Tatsu-sama or Tsuya-sama would not really sound right, since the "sama" title is something you tack on if you are addressing someone of high status, like an emperor or god. It would be like addressing Prince Charles as, say, "Your highness Chucky".

So, i went with Tatsuya-sama. Therein above is a crash course of how my brain works in certain circumstances. I thought it at least might sound better than a word usually used to describe a branding of ink on one's body parts, but i suppose i had failed.

Sorry for being annoying. Being the new guy here, i don't really have a place to say about long-standing nicknames and such... but oops, i guess i did anyway.

Ha ha ha ha.

Ha.

If you don't like "Tat," why not just stick with Tatsuya?

That's what I do.

And if you were trying to be respectful, shouldn't it have been Ishida-sama anyway?

If you're itching, you might be allergic to being a pretentious fuckwit.

aren't you supposed to apply the honorable title "sama" to the surname?

Of course it's no major offense to use that sama phrase, but - please don't take that personally - I don't like it because it sounds a little too much ass-kissing-esque to me. Hmm, that was harsher than I intended, but anyway... Smile
