re:Cut Damn You, Muscle Memory!. I meant to just put the inbounds down, I'd already gone over the wicks.

Either way, I'll accept the cut request on Main.The Big O and move this discussion to the work page itself. Seems like the redirect has no purpose.

The following Natter that violated Example Indentation (and was irrelevant to the example) was deleted from Sand Is Water.

  • Subjected to sufficient vibration, any granular substance (such as sand) can behave like a liquid. In fact, sand frequently acts like a liquid all on its own - just watch an hourglass (Roger has several you can observe). You can also cause sand to behave like a liquid by blowing air into it. Under the right conditions, regular sand is more fluid (and able to swallow objects) than quicksand.

Under the Nietzsche Wannabe trope:

  • The title of the episode supports this.

Doesn't the higher comment make this sufficiently obvious? To wit:

  • More like a Thomas Hobbes Wannabe; compare his narration in the episode "Leviathan" with Hobbes' book of the same name.

Emphasis mine. I've tentatively removed the entry, unless someone can point out how it adds something substantial.

Reduced coverage of some spoilers to the actual spoiler material and removed a couple altogether because they weren't really spoilers.

I keep hearing about Beck having a terrifying final fate in the manga, but I can't seem to find any information other than that it's nightmare fuel level. Can someone tell me what happens? :\

I think it's kind of misleading to emphasize the supposedly Japanese cultural perspective of some of this show's characters, when this is in fact one of the most Western anime I've ever seen. Virtually nothing about this show is Japanese (I would say the mecha aspect is pretty Japanese, though), and frankly the notion that odd disturbances are the works of gods is a pretty common one around the world. I could see it happening more in Japan than the US, but I wouldn't call it a "Japanese phenomenon" or anything.
