I dunno how I’ve never found this thread before but it’s making me realise that I completely abandoned a France itabag I was starting to make around April. So maybe I gotta go back to doing that for him - anyone else got one or in the process of?>>270889

Since Hetalia was the first anime I watched seriously, as long as my first manga ever, I knew nothing about how fandoms would work, but in return my love for history would finally find an happy place. I have a core memory of my 13 year old self amassing tons of “dear diary” and headcanons on Pinterest, and believing all of them were real or canon in some way because (picrel as example) “ah yes, it makes sense because at the end of the day people from England and people from Germany all descend for the same ancient population, which is also represented in the series by Vati Germania, and also it’s fitting because England is the only one of his brothers who does not have red hair and freckles so it’s a clear sign that Himapapa created him with blond hair and green eyes in order to represent this historical fact and blah blah blah”…. At this point, can I say that “my copy of Hetalia is personalized”? Sorry for blogposting and autism sperging, I could speak about it forever

I've never watched Hetalia before because the teen fandom back then scared me, the concept weirded me out and i feared that i would obsess over even sillier anime husbandos but so far i watched the first 3 seasons (had no idea that it was such a long series) and Germany is so adorable… i like Sweden too even if he didn't appear much, but Germany is almost husbando-built to me, i feel so defenceless whenever he's on screen.
I'm not really obsessing over shipping characters but the Italy/Germany/Japan trio is really cute. America, China and Sealand are such fun characters and Switzerland is fun too when he gets all territorial.
I'm enjoying the show but i need a break before i watch the other seasons now.

All my friends grew out of Hetalia and we always talk about how cringe it was in the group chat but I secretly still love it, it just reminds me of the old days and it's so comforting. I always come back to it because it's impossible to ever get bored of it, since there's so much you could do with it.
Anyway, I wish I could draw because I need to see England in the 1960s dressed like a member of the Beatles. Or America in the 1950s dressed like a greaser.
