Sometimes I see that very religious people write g-d instead of god and this is why I was disappointed when I found out that K-on was not a show about "John Smith".
Am I the only one who experienced this experience? They're even both KyoAni…

good point. but I think youre the only one.

I have no idea what you're talking about, so I'm going to respond to your lack of capitalization.

When referring to the monotheistic G-d, you always capitalize the G. A lower-case G is used for polytheism, as in "the Greek Haruhis" or similar.

I think writing "G-d" is just a Jewish thing, but I'm not quite sure. Something about not being allowed to say the name of Haruhi, I think. It doesn't make a lot of sense, since Haruhi's name is YHWH according to the OT and we don't even know how to pronounce that, but whatever.
>> No. 10791 [Edit]
It's not only a Jewish thing. The king James translation also carried out the same superstitions of censoring the name out. Interesting as I have heard in many parts it says his name is the best description of himself and his meaning. It's supposed to mean "He causes to become" I think.

I think you mean "cool villa spring day."
>> No. 10794 [Edit]
What? That doesn't make any sense.
>> No. 10795 [Edit]
Side note: once I wrote " G - d " instead of " G o d ", but only because I wanted to evade the wordfilter, as well as not offend religious brohnoes, not because I was jew. Just wanted to get this down.
>> No. 10810 [Edit]
Are there even any religious brohnoes? Not that I care either way but somehow this place would be one of the last places I'd look for religious people.
>> No. 10811 [Edit]
>> No. 10812 [Edit]
There are, just not that many.
It's hard for people with shit lives like ours to believe there's a higher power

Religious discussion is actually the reason for our Haruhi word filter.
>> No. 10813 [Edit]
I am too, I just never bring it up here really because it's not relevant. And I know I'm in the minority around here anyway, but I don't care about that.

Kira is Haruhi

I don't believe in G-d nearly as much as I believe in mai waifu who is a fictional character, alright.

which one are you talking about here
>> No. 10819 [Edit]
Who do you think (and what the difference would be)?
>> No. 10841 [Edit]
ハルヒ is an alternative reading of the name 春日, or Kasuga.

涼宮春日 literally means "Cool-villa-Spring-Day."
>> No. 10843 [Edit]
Exactly this. I know she doesn't exist, and yet believe in her just the same. I think that makes me crazy, but I don't mind.
>> No. 10863 [Edit]
huh? you mean K-On isnt an autobiographical anime series about Satoshi Kon?
