I randomly got back into this Hetalia earlier this year. I still feel kind of embarrassed about it but the comics are cute and nice to read. Prussia was my favorite character when I was younger
Don't be ashamed nonny
, it was the same for me. It gave me a military uniform fetish and a pec fetish, made me seriously interested in history and geography, helped me discover my favorite band and a whole new music genre, helped me learn hiragana and katakana, etc.
A lot of the characters' traits are based on Himaruya's personal experiences with that country or people from that country. For example, Greece liking cats because Himaruya's Greek college friend liked cats a lot, even though, I've heard, most Greek people hating cats (while the cat lovers are mostly in Turkey).
Another known inaccuracy is Sweden and Finland's personalities being like the opposite of what people from those countries are stereotyped as (correct me if I'm wrong though), which was one of the reasons why Humon created Scandinavia and the World
Well, that's what I read a long time ago, maybe it's a stereotype that exists or not, and even if it exists, stereotypes can be wrong.
But Turkey should've been the cat lover, that would be much more accurate.
. He is my favorite too. I love him so much
samefag, but I miss the days when I could spend all day downloading Hetalia MMD models to posing them and making my favorite pairing kiss kek.
Since we are here? What are your favorite countries, nonnies? Any fanfic recs?

They've been making nendoroids of the characters since about 2018ish, with the most recent one being Romano. I have all of the characters for their first releases so far (been collecting them as they come out) but none of the re-releases in different outfits. I also have the Italy pop-up parade figure. I remember when Hetalia had a huge western fanbase everyone would complain that there were no nendos of them. I'm really glad they make them now I always wanted some lol
Does anybody ever miss how big the community used to be in the west? I think it might be a rose tinted glasses thing because the community was always full of spergs and later became super militantly pc like on tumblr. I miss having a constant stream of discussion and fanart it was fun

I think one of the plus about the hetalia fandom being that when nyotalia was introduced or even just including the regular girl characters, fanfiction/fanart involving them catered to girls more than boys ie. sfw art wasn't commerish and selfinsert fics still made the protagonist female

kek I remember this shit, I had originally forgotten. The difference in humor of the dub in the first season and the latest season is pretty jarring, it shows a cultural shift I think since the 2000s were all about that edgy humor. Also I meant militantly pc like sjws on tumblr drawing everybody as fat and trans with vitiligo and bitching hard about how Hima put a large focus on European history, everything is problematic, etc. I remember towards the end of its popularity in the west people were calling Hetalia a "white supremacist anime" like as if it wasn't made by a Japanese guy celebrating different cultures. Spoiler cuz I don't wanna politicalsperg or go off-topic too hard>>252265

Ehh I've never paid that much for one, I always pre-order them directly from Goodsmile or Tokyo Otaku Mode. I think people scalp them a lot. 200 USD is probably worth four nendos plus shipping for me for what I pay in CAD
Question: what characters would you nonnies like to see made into nendoroids? What about different outfits for pre-existing nendos? I think a cowboy America would be cute. Still praying for an eventual Canada nendo. I need it

God this takes me back… I used to be fucking obsessed with 2p!talia. I thought 2p!America was the hottest mf on earth, I spent hours reading reader insert fics with him on Quotev back in the day.

there is no direct evidence, but the theory is plausible. some even argue he might actually be a tranny>first his girly shoujo style, idk how many moids are into moe pastel bishies and non-sexualized girls in lolita dresses>the blatant fujo pandering, actually can't even call it pandering because the nations having gay sex all the time was canon in the first strips and only recently retconned>he may or may not have projected on hungary's character, she's a tomboy fujo who once believed she was a man, and if you remember the late 2000s fujos, it was common for them to say that "they're a gay man inside" >japanese channers found a very old video of a high school female student drawing in a very similar style and they believe she might be a younger himaruya>pic related his portrait, he arguably looks like an aiden but it could also be just the artist's style
according to one of his older pics, he has a buzzcut so the tranny theory holds water. or he could just be a gay moid with very feminine interests

That actually might better explain when he was selling heyalia merch at an event in Japan and nobody was anle to identify which staff was him. But idk I still feel like he would be a guy in that he knew that the fanbase was mostly female hence all the pandering to keep the fans around.

with america. It was originally a jp fangame and was then translated over but the original jp was never finished. I think that the western fandom did end up making a finished fan ending for the original jp fangame tho.>>252404

Yeah, I was surprised by how complex and deep it was for a fan game. It was translated by SotetAG on youtube and the last episode was a pretty tense moment in the game and it basically "ended" on a big cliffhanger. People waited for years for an update but apparently the creator stopped because of a tsunami and never went back to it.

Her simple cute outfit is actually very on brand, sun dresses are very common. But I just wish since every character reflected what the majority of their country’s population looked like, she would be at minimum tan in all of her art. Himaruya seemed to do so in the beginning but it changed to pale in gakuen, which I assume wasn’t completely his control. We’re a creole country, so everyone is medium to dark brown with some French nationals around who are still usually mixed.

Okay so regarding the Himapapa identity The chance for him being a girl is actually higher but the possibility that Himaruya is a man is still higher than him being a women. There is a tumblr post detailing it https://kieeeeeeeeeeeeeeehimaruyahidekaz.tumblr.com/post/30509513077/chiba-eriko

I have many but Germany makes me feel intimidated in a good way. Plus the fact that he loves baking
I loved the 2p main trio, Italy especially.I also consumed an unholy amount of Feliciano x Romano doujinshis as well as Italy x Germany and South Italy x Spain, I was so hellbent on finding the "rarest" ones. Yes I'm ashamed.

You should definitely write a RusAme fic, follow your heart. I used to read a lot more back in the day but most of it was written by 12 year olds, so it was just Ivan hitting Alfred with a pipe kek. At the same time, some of the most gut wrenching angst was created in that era. I'm feeling so nostalgic.

I wanted to ask opinions about whether any of you nonnies have preferences for when artists draw the characters more cutesy or mature? Personal appearance headcanons? I like both styles for pretty much any character but I like it when artists draw Canada as more mature looking, America more buff, England more slender etc.

I remember some fics that were pretty good before the purge of ffn in around 2012. I think some may have gotten archived on ao3 if the authors cared enough to repost. It was like the burning of the library of Alexandria. I was a computer illiterate kid at the time so I didn't save anything, unfortunately.
I will, I have to create a new AO3 account, since I forgot the old one.>>253470
Depends of the character. Russia is described as someone ruthless but with childish features, so a young looking face is better suited for him, despite him being strong and tall. For Germany, a mature face would be better, since he is described as someone serious. My preferred style is a handsome face with sharp features, so something similar to mid twenties in age.
File: 1667694460567.png (1.12 MB, 723x1050, axisallies.png)
I also like both styles but on certain characters I am more partial to mature features.
For America/Canada I feel that a contrast between the positive and bubbly attitude and a mature look is very appealing.
I love when people draw China/Japan with a sturdy build and a youthful yet strong face.
I think for artists who draw Russia finding an equilibrium to have him come off as childish/cute yet still holding mature features is the best thing they can do.
I love a more muscular England. France is perfect no matter what.
Italy and Romano with a toned build and boyish looks.
Germany must be manly since it serves to enhances his other traits!

As an American, yes and no. I do not feel as if Alfred personifies the average American accurately, (especially since he's white and he'd be Native American if we wanted to get historical) but I feel that he does personify the way America as a country presents itself: as the loud one who's always in charge.
It would be fucked if they had an indigenous representation of america, then replaced him (or them plural, because of how divided indigenous tribes were) with a single cocky white boy to illustrate the overall shift in america's identity. >>253551
NTA but I'm american, and I don't think much would change so long as it was still coming from a foreigners perspective with a limited exposure to america. The manga and anime wasn't as creative as it could've been with american topics and stereotypes to poke fun at from the beginning, it's just about being cocky, dumb, obnoxious, overly casual, and eating excessively. Then occasionally mentioning some key historical events. It'd probably be relatively the same as it was before. At most they'd make slight allusions to trump's presidency or gun issues, but that's a stretch because there has always been opportunities for relevant jokes they missed.

Has anyone else played this visual novel? This happened a long time ago when i was 13 and was obsessed with dating sim. I met this hetalia community in devianart that was translating this 18+ game and was excited to download it. At that time i was aware of sexual things but nothing too deeper like fetishes or something like that. I inicially started on the UK route and everything was cute and fluff like most dating sims UNTIL the uk guy got mad at me and raped the mc??? like literally raped her because she tries to fight back and leave the room but cant…. I was so shocked that i deleted the saved route and started the USA route because i thought the rape part was something related to the uk character but the mc got raped in the usa route too. And in the russia route its even worse because its a much more violent sexual abuse. I never got to finish any route because the 13 old me found the game repulsive. The art of the game was so cute (theres even a cg where mc marry germany) i would never thought it was a dark game
I dont think so nonnie
because i found a walkthrough for the america route and theres the rape scene too…. And the sexual abuse is not on the end of the route its like in the inicial/middle part so it can't be a bad end.

Why do translators give up work like that? Most of the time ive seen it happen between eastern devs giving warnings but usually its because they think the translators are just remaking the game with different stuff all in english or spanish when the translators are being as faithful as they can (depending on their translation skills).

I agree with you about America, but I think if Canada was presented as a Métis (Native+French) man it would still be pretty accurate and probably not offensive. They have their own cultural identity rooted in Canadian history and culture. I can see why the dub crew didn't give him a French Canadian accent and gave him an English-speaking one instead, but it would make more sense that his first language is French too. Also imo he looks better and more distinctive this way lol

>>253629>usually its because they think the translators are just remaking the game with different stuff
Really? that's a pretty stupid assumption to make, if true. I like Japanese devs that work with overseas translators like the Luckydog1 and the I Love You!/Suki da! devs.>>253674
I think an alternate Métis Canada would be awesome. 2P Nyo America is dark-skinned (and these are the colors fans have given to 2P America, which has an official design but no colors). There should be 3P versions of the characters or something, even if they're fanmade
There are fanmade 3p and even 4p characters. I believe 3p england has green hair.
I think the 2p alter ego should be the only "official" character alt. If I remember correctly its not that 2p america whether male or female are dark skinned but just tanned. 2p are implied to be the evil versions of the characters and interpreted as such by fandom majority unless the regular 1p was already morally questionable then they would assume a more innocent persona as 2p ie. Belarus
Regarding repost culture. While i don't think its bad or good I can understand not wanting art spread around esp without credit. Some jp creators are so bothered by it that they can resort to ridding their pages of the content by deleting it.

I want to see Belarus, Rome, Canada, and Prussia. Also any fun variations of the main cast. I’ve been tempted to buy Russia but I’m not convinced it’d be worth the money, the matryoshka doll he comes with is definitely adorable though
I don't think there really was.
Compared to modern joseimuke Hetalia seems a lot less intentional though. I wouldn't be surprised if Himaruya really was just a guy who stumbled onto this audience entirely accidentally and not 3 fujos in a trenchcoat or whatever the theory is these days.
The idea of making a series that's outright designed to be a big toybox for fans to play with rather than really being a story in of itself definitely seems like a post 2010 phenomenon for sure, at least for female targeted stuff.
It's probably a doujin circle, >>252799
pic related was most likely part of it. It was pretty common back then
Hetalia was probably the first female gaze version of those moe anthropomorphism franchises for scrotes. And the characters being based on countries only made it easy to become popular outside Japan because the concept of anthropomorphized countries is so universal.
I think Hetalia also made me seek other series with huge casts of cute, colorful characters like MLP:FiM (which became popular soon after I got into Hetalia) and Touhou (another Japanese franchise with a massive fandom and infinite fanworks). I don't think I could become such a big fan of another moe anthropomorphism series with bishies, though. Hetalia will always be the only one for me.>>253875>The idea of making a series that's outright designed to be a big toybox for fans to play with rather than really being a story in of itself
This, it's exactly what I was about to say. I don't think most other joseimuke franchises can succeed at this like Hetalia did. It would feel like they're trying too hard to copy Hetalia's success while Himaruya probably wasn't even trying.>>253877
She means that Hetalia, as a massively popular phenomenon, seems less intentional than modern joseimuke franchises that are designed to get popular. She wasn't talking about the edginess.>>253904
I think it's good that Hetalia was largely about the fans creating their own content. I remember reading about this fancomic that was on dA (never read it myself) that was made by an Asian fan and got a lot of praise for portraying historical relations between South Asian countries in a relatively accurate and nuanced way or something. I know after a certain point, Himaruya started to do more research before creating new characters to avoid too many inaccuracies or doing something offensive. But I like that the fandom and the source material and its author have this symbiotic relationship.

File: 1667883864048.png (234.41 KB, 470x601, Canadaedit2.png)
Yeah that's a really good point, I didn't even think about that. It's true that sometimes fans make material that's offensive/disrespectful and it can be disappointing, but I think even more fans make material that's really great and well thought out or at the very least inoffensive. Although I have seen fanart of America just looking like his blonde ass white boy self in poorly drawn Native regalia… All that art is like 10 years old at least but it still exists. I think it would have been really cool for Canada to be Métis, there are very very few Native anime characters. At least we have creative liberty with fun fanon interpretations lol>>254035
I am also a consoomer when it comes to hetashit but yeah these things are ugly. If you pay so much for them why do you have to style the hair yourself? I guess it doesn't hold up in transport or something. The only saving grace is they made a Canada one, which means they know maplefags like me want merch of him. Hopefully we get a nendoroid or maybe even a pop up parade of him eventually kek

What are some Hetaloid songs you like or have listened to?
I loved this fusion of fandom. Its the ingenuity of the hetalia fandom.
Virgin suicides with Italy is pretty good.

I notice a lot of fans just grew up and got over the ship in general. Im not a moralfag myself (I like spamano)but I will agree with them since USUK gets in the way of my OTP now kek.
In Hets heyday, I was a 13 y/o fujoshit who adored USUK. To answer this question >>254032
, honestly I just found America more attractive and thought USUK was the better 'angsty hotter' ship of the series. I think that's what a lot of other girls felt too. >>252496
nona please this still gives me the creeps even if its so goofy now lol
Hetalia is one the biggest thing that makes me feel like a kid again, going to cons where nobody gave a shit about clout or being super morally correct, and screeching 'yaoiiii' with other fangirls at the masquerade. Those times were so simpler.
Has anyone here read Seven Little Killers? I know it was one of the most popular Hetalia fanfics at the time - I got really deep into it before falling off and when I wanted to get back into it, the author had some drama and deleted the fic? I only recently found that someone had saved it to a google drive so I saved it to catch up to it some day. I'm not sure if it was even originally completed though.

I will literally never stop buying these shits. I'm actually still waiting for my France nendo to come in, it's being held by Goodsmile because Japan Post still has suspended shipping rip. I paid in total about $30 USD because I purchased it through Tokyo Otaku Mode and I'm subscribed to their membership so I get points and the member discount. Also I feel like they are maybe ramping up production of the heta nendos? I noticed that the two most recent ones are being released only one month apart, maybe they will start to release two at a time? I can't wait until they announce the next characters lol

How expensive are shipping fees from Goodsmile? Do they add random import fees after you pay?
Also, does anyone else think it is weird how the pop up parade figures have a really realistic body and extremely anime face? Regardless, I'd consoom so hard if they made an America version.

Fuck agreed nonnie
I would snatch up an America pop up parade so fast it's not funny. To me the faces depend on the character, I also think Germany looks a little too kawaii lol.
I think I always pay a bit of money for import/customs fees once it gets here… When I bought the Italy pop up parade it came in a pretty big box for the item and I paid like $16 CAD in fees. To Canada the shipping from TOM was about $10 USD cheapest option and from Goodsmile it's $18 USD.

not in the slightest.
realistically speaking, greece should have been hot-headed, extroverted, sleazy, faux-puritan and a people-pleaser (but still talking shit behind everyone's back).
ideally, he would have been a proto-reigen of sorts.
I think that netherlands being a lolicon probably has to do with stuff I heard about the irl dutch government being relatively lax on pedos for decades and have created or allowed circumstances for them to indulge in their crimes and even have a political party dedicated to pedophilia
Honestly its news to me and I actually liked netherlands so now Im distraught about having learned that it is canon

Americafag ayrt I just realized I said Denmark instead of Netherlands because I was looking at anon's pic of him, sorry Denmarku. It's kinda funny how they both have spikey hair.
The real pedo normalizing history of the Netherlands is gross as fuck, I never knew that. The wiki says he has a "Lolita complex" and likes "young women". I never really paid attention to him, so I don't know if he was written in a different light later on. Are the people saying he was retconned coping or was he really fixed?
No its RusAme
Thats sounds like a cringe ass country humans
i see where you're coming from but id have to disagree.
i don't really think there is a modern equivalent to hetalia. bnha is similar in terms of the sheer size of fans, but their fans arent at all comparable to hetalia fans. for one thing i think current zoomers would deem hetalia too problematic
, and you wouldn't see people openly shipping things like USUK like you did back in the day.
say what you will about og hetalia fans but id take them over your average bnha kid any day
Uh im dutch and i dont know anything about how pedos can "indulge" in there crimes. >even have a political party dedicated to pedophilia
This is because in the netherlands everyone is allowed to create a politcal party, you dont even have to be dutch to create one or be an adult. I right now can create a TERF
political party if i wanted and no one can stop me kek. The pedo party you mentioned was created by 3 pedo moids, however surprise they had no supporters so the party was disbanded. Is it ridiculous that literally anyone can make a political party, maybe. But also political parties have no power here unless you actually get enough supporters, which you need a lot of and otherwise you get disbanded. Im not saying there are no pedos in the netherlands and that our goverment doesnt suck. But lets not pretend its worse here then japan where you literally have idol culture where old moids go after 12 year old girls, take panty shots and molest them in trains. Feel free to share any sources about netherlands normalizing pedos because google gives me nothing and it sounds interesting
I really disagree, nonny
. While MHA has a lot of Dabi and Bakugou fangirls, TodoDeku shippers and a lot of fujo shippers, the anime is very aimed at moids and the fandom is infested with them. The majority of fanarts are coomer hentai shit made by scrotes. I agree with the other nona, there is nothing modern that compares with Hetalia. Modern anime is basically ecchi filled shitty isekai for moids or coomer shit for moids. The last thing I could see that would get close to Hetalia it's Free!, but it was made in 2013 (I think), so it is ancient at this point, honestly
that's a weird comparison, why MHA in particular? their fanbase isn't any different from other shounen series. well maybe a bit more attractive to genderspecials for some reason but still
there won't ever be another fanbase like hetalia because unhinged fujoism and y/n-ism has became very niche, most weeb fanbases these days are puritanical and filled with troons

This is hilarious to me but I agree kek.

Man, I miss Hetalia. I stopped keeping up with it in 2012 because of the webcomic hiatus and the insane newfags who got into it because of the terrible American dub. When I was in Japan in 2020 I saw the manga in Animate and I didn't buy them because I was worried I wouldn't have enough space in my suitcase for everything and I was right, but I regret not buying them anyway. Next time I will. I'm still surprised to this day that we didn't get an official release of the manga in France despite almost everything and anything having official translations and releases here.

Some anons here were talking about how Hetalia kind of killed the concept of humanized countries (mostly because of tumblrfags reeing) so I wanted to share.https://comic.pixiv.net/works/8528
Humanized countries are not a novel concept but the designs really remind me of Hetalia, especially America's. France and England look like shit though. I wonder if people will say it's problematic
too if it gets popular. I see some crossover potential as well.

As someone recovering from tumblrbrain, this thread sent me thru so many emotions. Hetalia was just about the only reason I took AP history in highschool or had any interest in the subject. I remember going home and checking the livejournal for hours every day for translations and fanworks. Prussia was always my bestboy, I love pathetic fictional men.
The shitty funimation dub ruined it, the manga never felt malicious and avoided atrocious subjects on purpose but the asshole dubbers couldn't resist Nazi jokes.

(Possible Hetalia drama in western fandom I figured out and put together)
Does anyone remember platinumspeed? Dude was an infamous spain cosplayer back then and there are multiple yt vids of of other aph fans filming him. He had a yt channel and he made a pretty good spanish dub of one of spain's character songs that I really kick myself for not downloading and saving tbh. It would be years till now that I tied to revisit the channel to fine out that all of platinumspeed's accounts across the internet are deleted. The lasting evidence of his existence would be the fan recordings of his cosplay, cosplay pictures with other creators on deviantart, and his cosplay.com account which he must've forgot about(which is where I got picrel).
I was super confused at first as his content was pretty decently made. His channel to my memory consisted of aph characters songs cover, possibly some cosplay skits, and voice acting.
File: 1668590170581.png (3.41 MB, 5848x4583, PlatinumSpedgross.png)
If we pay attention to the fact that most of his net footprint has been scrubbed and that he had an interest in voice acting it. His works are still mentioned on the hetalia animo platform some even asking about his dissapearance.
Platinumspeed's VA interest can connect him to not just hetalia but also the Sonic fandom. He would eventually become a part of sonicsong182
's group to voice act in its sonic animation content. It was apparently a very popular thing and still kind of is.
PlatinumSpeed would eventually go on to troon out publicly in 2016 and he would alternatively be known as as Chrissy Bears.
Because this form degeneracy is recognized as a valid
social image it was a little challenging trying to find info for the male as any mentions of PlatinumSpeed in sonic fandom would mistakenly call him a 'she' while the hetalia fandom rightfully remember him as a male. He eventually would be a part of a streaming host duo channel on youtube going by Trans
mission*. I forgot to include that he had a tumblr account and you can find comments on hetalia related post on tumblr and deviantart from deactivated accounts with his username.
The way I confirmed that the Hetalia spain fanboy is the same person as the sonicsong182
member VA was that the links used
for his user for his facebook, youtube and twitter under trans*mission video descriptions are all defunct, except, when you click on the twitter link you would find that whoever took over his name had decided to keep it as a warning to all that PlatinumSpeed/Chrissy Bears groomed minors within the sonic fandom.Also kek at the twitter comment I found from a fan of platinum speed apologizing from what I assume to be his sperging about "muh pronouns"
damn this sounds kinda eerie. Are there no recent comments on those videos and profile? Did you not find any mention of drama? Weird. Maybe he died or something>>255392
ok nvm. Thank you for your 2-hour search, this was a very interesting read. What a shame that he trooned out and that he's a pedo groomer like so many perverted males in fandom.>sonic fandom would mistakenly call him a 'she' while the hetalia fandom rightfully remember him as a male
Based politically incorrect hetafags.I hope you've archived every link you found though, in case he finds your post and deletes the last traces of his true identity and grooming.

Holy shit, I feel sorry for whoever may still be attached to his Hetalia content. Also it seems that he trooned out publicly before 2016, as there are 2015 callout posts on Tumblr that refer to him as "she", and most notably, his post-troonout blog was first archived in March 2015. https://web.archive.org/web/20150309074027/http://platinumbootyreportingforduty.tumblr.com/

same guy as >>255383
can you believe that
File: 1668612592447.png (4.77 MB, 4751x3026, ChrisChrissyBaresexpose.png)
I have reason to believe that this guy has potentially groomed/creeped on hetalia fans not just sonic fans. On Chris Bares (PlatinumSpeed) wiki page as Chrissy Bares for the Sonic VA stuff, his date of brith is listed as 25th of Dec. 1992. Ive seen somewhere that he was involved with hetalia since 2008 but from my references there are yt video from early 2010s of him acting out the character of spain in front of other hetalia fans, mostly girls (eyebrow raiser for sure).
The earliest video I could find was dated from Anime Expo 2010 so we can speculate that it may be 2008/2009 that he was apart of the fandom so since he was 16/17, though in 2010 he was 18.
Now I know that in the callout post
The user chikkou, she details a few things of interest (note that "she" in the greentext below refers to PlatinumSpeed/Chris Bares/Chrissy Bares):
>when i was 14 and chrissy was 19, i had met chrissy through a mutual friend. >she was always flirtatious, making sexual advances which i wasnt used to receiving and misinterpreted as her genuinely loving me and wanting to be with me.>this happened repeatedly over the course of maybe over half a year. ("this" refers to the sexual abuse)>she stopped pretending to care about how i felt and would come to me almost exclusively to get herself off, despite the fact that she had a girlfriend who didnt know about what chrissy did with me (and that i didnt know even existed).
Now these details bring a couple videos I that I was mention about earlier. Chikkou admits that PlatinumSpeed(Chris Bares) was in fact 19 meaning that it had occurred circa 2011/2012 at their time of meeting meaning that Platinum Speed(Chris Bares) was pre-transition at this point.
A youtube channel by the name of Teddywangdoodle
has videos uploaded of a 2012 hetalia meetup. They do not reference PlatinumSpeed in title or desc so the potential for these details could be missed.
There are 3 videos in particular that really add to the claims of Chikkou as a victim
and the speculation of the abuse occurring potentially with other unheard victims
Video#1 is especially telling of the greentext details. In the comment section of Vid #1 the uploader basically confirms that the blonde girl who is closet cosplay france that kisses PlatinumSpeed was presented as his girlfriend which lines up pretty well with what was said. Secondly, Platinum speed exihibits weird sexual behaviour even if it was for fanservice it does get quite strange as Video#3 is basically him repeatedly licking ice cream sexually. Now his promiscuity is again shown in Video#2 where he kisses someone who is not his gf who is cosplayed as Sealand (seriously this doesn't look good in the slightest)
who looks to be undeaged . Even if the gf was consenting to Chris Bares doing that, his willingness to go along with schemes as such really and knowing that his sexual depravity went that far back and probably even further definantly shows the potential for abuse. Again, going back to Vid#3, the amount of girls fangirling over him doing shit definitely must've made occurrences for him to prey on the vulnerable relatively common and I don't doubt that there are dozens more victims
It honestly creeps me out to know that these videos are of what is seemingly an innocent weeb engaging with other people while simultaneously being involved in some of the most depraved behaviour ever. PlatinumSpeed being a hidden predator in a predominantly female fanbase meant that this sick fuck was definantly in situations it where he was constantly in reach of many potential victims
especially considering that he was quite popular for both his content, cosplay, and being a guy into hetalia.

My favorite APH characters are all over the place (it's like a new flavor of the week thing for me) but I loooooved ChanCake/Awdeko's APH fanart. It looks like a lot of it got scrubbed from her deviantart account unfortunately, what a shame. She mostly drew the Asian countries and I believe her family is from Hong Kong so she drew a lot of Hong Kong. He is really cute and definitely one of my favorites too.

Also one of my favorite rarepairs/unusual pairings was RusCan, but I will admit my cringe and say it was mainly because I had a huge crush on a Russia cosplayer and I was a Canada cosplayer kek. In one of the few existing RusCan fanfics they talked about mixing vodka and maple syrup so the first time my idiot underage self got her grubby little hands on some vodka, you can bet your ass I mixed it with maple syrup. Absolutely disgusting shit but a really funny memory when I think about it.
Also if that isn't cringey enough, I had a huge crush on a France cosplayer (although I mainly enjoyed France/Canada content in the form of wholesome parent/child content), and literally about a decade later I finally got the courage to talk to her because we both still cosplayed and we ended up dating for a little bit kek. She did a France cosplay very recently with some old friends and she still looks so fucking good as France.

Anyone else a Furansu fag? He was my first hetalia husbando.
That being said, wtf are those proportions? Why are his thighs so juicy and where's the happy trail? Still swooned though.

Despite what others think that he's a perv, I like him. I'd like a romantic pathetic man with beautiful blonde locks and a stubble who'll shower me with love. He's a great cook too but also great in bed. Also, wew that France pic based Himapapa drew. Now that you mentioned it, wasn't France canonically hairy?

I like to think that France's tender moments are more of a subtle romantic who's gentle but confident in his intentions/actions the thought makes me ///blush/// !

I had a lc dream that anons were complaining about the hetalia thread because if hetalia fans wanted to talk on /m/ they should just merge with every other husbando flavoured theme board

To all nonnies interested – Arthur in the Dark can be read here! -> https://archive.org/details/ArthurInTheDark/mode/2up?view=theater
I remember there was also a short USUK doujin where England went mute. Hetafags love making British eyebrows man helpless and weak although I'm not complaining kek
nonna* didn't see this >>257864
Men existing in hetalia was so rare I think I've seen one man in a hetalia cosplay all of once and every girl fucking swarmed him. Kind cringe but this video demonstrates the point perfectly
she did came out as nonbinary this year this year iirc. made a post on insta about it as well. cim is still dating that girl in their vids, the one who cosplays levi. >>254126
yeah, i miss them. fia deleted some of their vlogs though. mica and her broke up too and the group haven't been close as they were years ago.
idk whats with swedish hetalia cosplay years ago but their skits were always funny and surprisingly organized and high quality, which reminds me of FarbrorEstersPojkar and its disappointing to know that the group or someone within the group decided to delete their entire videos because a commenter keeps on misgendering the sweden cosplayer even though at the time she didn't disclose herself as a tif. at least that's what i've read after scurrying through the internet to found out why their videos have been removed from their channel.
