    Ugh, it was a bit unexpected that if they let the characters exist in the middle of the tag, but not the very end.

    I can see why, just a bit annoying.

    It may be worth changing the normalization process to strip these characters in pairs (only if there's a non "letter" at the start and end). What was the example case that triggered this?

    The use case ends up being something similar to:
    • xcom (2012)
    • xcom (1994)
    • BattleStar Galactica (1978)
    • BattleStar Galactica (2004)
    Video games, tv shows, movies have a habit of being remade with exactly the same title and differential by the year.

    What if the "xcom (2012)" is converted to "xcom 2012"? :)
    Just wondering.

    The problem with that is there are a bunch of games & other media which put what looks like year in their actual title but aren't released in that year.

    That format is also heavily used by Wikipedia and IMDB

    I have changed this to only strip when the start and end has non-letters, which should resolve this case and hopefully most of the other incorrect cases.
