Am I the only one that hates that they call it the Scouting Regiment and not the Recon Corps or Survey Corps or heck even the Scouting Legion. I know it was probably a decision by the Japanese licensor, but it just sounds weird to me.

it sounds weird because you are not used to it(?)

personally I'm not bothered with it, I have read so many variations of the names in so many languages already that I don't even care anymore tbh

You're not alone, mate. But like Nemui_Nezumi said I think it'll get easier over time and it really doesn't make that big a difference in the big picture.

Nope. I can't help but be annoyed as well.

I hate it as well. In the "Still Can't See" episode, they finally did call it the Survey Corps instead for some reason. But I guess it was only for that one episode...?

Mike McFarland claimed on twitter a couple weeks backs that they use Scouting Reagent and Survey Corps interchangeably so who knows? I have yet to hear it (must have missed that one time).
