You are correct. I don't know if it's an error in the css or something, but the titles don't show up on the day of posting.

HOWEVER, if you click 'previous', and then 'next', the title shows up. That's what I do when I make the comic threads.

edit*
HOLY shit, I never bothered to look up what Tat's name meant:

Tatsuya can be written using different kanji characters and can mean:
達也, "master/accomplished, to be"
達矢, "master/accomplished, arrow"
竜也, "dragon, to be"
竜哉, "dragon, how"
竜弥, "dragon, all the more"
辰也, "sign of the dragon, to be"
龍也, "dragon, to be"

So anyone calling Tat by name is essentially calling him "Master"?

Well he kinda is master, now isn't he? I mean, Percy and Pooch's master, anyways. That's literally the only thing his author avatar is formally known as in-canon, so... Ha, ha ha ha.

dudes

you're reading way too much into that wikipedia article

seriously

okay, sure, the "tatsu" bit of Tatsuya is commonly written as dragon etc.

but it's also commonly written 立 or 建 or 達
and we don't know which one Tat's name uses, if any


also that last character is the one you're all interpreting as "master"
in Japanese it's most commonly just used to pluralize things

here's the wiktionary article for it: http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/%E9%81%94
here's a list of words that it's used in: http://jisho.org/words?jap=%E9%81%94&eng=&dict=edict

if you insist on reading meanings into names, there's often loads of possible meanings you could go with

in any case it's like if his name was Mitchell and you were all like 'ooo that means "one who is like God," so...'

Not too surprising, because 石田 is how you write "Ishida" in Japanese. I suppose a literal translation to English might be "Stonefield."

It shows up fine for me - as alt text. That's where I get the titles from, on those rare instances where I begin a thread.

hahaha, that?

the titles are in the archive pages
even the archive pages for the current strip

but not the main page, no

I don't think that's an error

certainly not an error in the style sheet
the php, maybe, if anywhere

yea but the question is have we ever seen his name written out like 石田たつや or 石田達也 or 石田多津矢 or 石田勃厭 (my apologies for this one, I know it's not this one) or whatever it might be

Yes, that. It's faster than going to the archives; just hover over the comic, and the title appears. What's so goddamned funny?

the idea that that's an error in the style sheet rather than just a design choice
I wrote:
石田勃厭

oh man I found an image that fits this perfectly

but I'm not going to post it



I'm sorry I'm being immature

OK then, laugh at Darqcyde; he suggested it, not me.
