All of them

No. 252033

from what little i have seen and read since they have only been a part of the manga since recently, it's okay. although, many have headcannon them to be a girl for the harem-esque material considering they've been colonized by a few of the main casts. so i was kind of surprise that they turned out to be a guy and is more close to their neighboring countries as opposed to other characters, which irl we're not.

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

No. 252038

I'm not catching up to the series rn and I'm kind of afraid to (potentially) see it for myself so I'll just ask here… is Hidekaz uuuh portraying the current Ukraine/Russia situation or nah? In World Stars he lampooned Brexit so is he doing the same with the war..?

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.

No. 252088

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

No. 252089

>most Greek people hating cats
do they really? the last time I was in Greece they seemed to be treated quite okay, not as nicely as in Turkey though indeed, Istanbul is full of kitties which does also add a lot to its charm.

No. 252092

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.

No. 252094

or both of them and have their love of cats be the only thing they agree on while hating each other otherwise

No. 252096

I feel like himaruya's portrayal of england is unironically more accurate than the one i've seen from humon and polandball, even though he has a tendency to woobify him a bit TOO much. He's more of an actual bastard kek

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
I always read readerxcharacter Y/N fanfic with the characters I liked, it was so cringe but I loved it

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

No. 252428

I just can't believe that a man can have this cutesy pretty style AND make a bunch of male characters have homoerotic relationships with each other and as you say, make the girls pretty and not sexualized. Gay moids have a shounen, ugly or bara-ish style and they don't make cute characters. The whole concept and art of hetalia is something only a woman can make.

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.

No. 252442

kek i remember making shit like that in middle school. cringe yet good memories

No. 252446

it's not really pandering, it's what he genuinely likes. i remember he used to be obsessed with roman emperors and how they were all having sex with men. also the obsession with sexy naked men and just anything male related. he only toned down the gayness and sexual content to make his series more normie-friendly now that he has a contract with shounen jump

No. 252447

The only specifically 'male' thing about him that I remember was that he mentioned how a lot of things acceptable for men in Japan were 'weird' (aka gay) in the west such as dying your hair (which isn't weird anymore but in the late 2000s/early 2010s was mocked quite a bit)

No. 252448

It was originally a jp fangame and was then translated over but the original jp was never finished.

Yeah, I was surprised by how complex and deep it was for a fan game.

Nazi larping is seen as very taboo online and offline so they wouldn't have been spared if they were men, in fact I would argue it would be worse because men rightfully are infamous for neo-nazi worship and violence.

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.

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.

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?

No. 253495

I will, I have to create a new AO3 account, since I forgot the old one.
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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

No. 253731

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 feel like hetalia was revolutionary in a way? It's very joseimuke before joseimuke oriented media became a thing, like a full male cast series with fujobait and no actual (albeit implied) romance. A choose your husbando, ship whoever you want kind of series. I'm aware there were plenty of other popular series with bishies at the time but most of them were clearly in the shounen or shoujo category, like a sports series or an otome, while hetalia was its own thing? Maybe other nonas know weeb history better, but I simply can't remember a pre-2009 husbando series like hetalia, or at least not with the same reach

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.

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.

>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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

No. 254784

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

No. 254786

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

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.

(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.

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 Transmission*.

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.

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
Video 2
Video 3

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.

What I love about hetalia is that no matter if no new content comes or if anyone as even watched/ read all of the content, people can still take part of discussion/fanfiction. The versatility of the character potential while being perfect visually is such a rare commodity. No matter the circumstance you place them in, the human and country characterization of the protagonists shine through very well. Hetalia has been able to maintain such a dedicated fanbase unlike most seasonal anime that's only saving grace is a slight tweak in an already played out scenario and animation that is sure to be inconsistent in quality.

How do you think people from your country would feel about its hetalia personification? I'm talking general public. Accurate? Inaccurate? I'm Polish and people would 100% call him a faggot and they'd probably talk about it on the news saying it's an attack on the entire nation or something lol

I feel like poland is one of the most inaccurate portrayals in hetalia. Clearly hima just wanted a crossdresser type of character and used poland for it. As for my nation, he's relatively accurate so I guess there wouldn't be any outrage, most of the general public would be okay with him

He was originally supposed to be a girl but Himaruya decided to change it for unknown reasons. But you're right, he's not based on any Polish stereotypes, really. Except for his stupidity I guess. His relationship with Lithuania makes the least sense imo and it's such a huge aspect of his character. Poles don't care about Lithuanians and Lithuanians don't like Poles because to them the Polish Lithuanian union was forced and pretty much a conquest. I still like Feliks though, even if he's a retard.

Not at all, I'm a doitsufag after all. My experiences with Germans left that impression. Their culture seems very straight forward and people tend to be direct. When I think of Germans I think of efficiency, attention to detail and beer lol. Where I live German things are also associated with high quality and Ludwig is shown to be very hard working and a perfectionist. Also, there's the German stare phenomenom where it's been proven that Germans look at people for a longer period of time than in other cultures leading many foreigners to think they're giving them an unfriendly stare. I wouldn't say they're especially friendly, not unfriendly either, just average. From what I've been told they tend to follow the rules and it's a stereotype that if you cross a street at a red light people will scold you for it. I think Germany is a good represantation of both stereotypes (such as being serious which ime is kind of true) and cultural traits. Most of the stuff I mentioned are either my own experiences with Germans or my aunt's who lives there. German anons feel free to correct me.

No. 263941

Burgerfag here, based on my experience with a small sample size of Germans I'd agree. They're direct and blunt, as opposed to us Burgers and Brits who will dance around subjects or have surface-level conversations because we're afraid of making people uncomfortable. Like if you ask "How are you?", Americans and Brits might say "I'm good!" even if we're not, just to be polite. Whereas Germans wonder "Why does this random person I don't know very well care how I am?" or they will actually go into detail of how they are i.e. "Not well. I'm having health problems-", etc kek

No. 264048

Ayrt, that's so true about Brits. I lived in the UK for a few months and it took me like three to figure out that when people ask 'how are you?' they expect you to say 'good, how about you?'. I would always give long, elaborate answers talking about my day and they'd just reply with 'I'm good' and it felt really awkward kek. May I ask what you think of America's depiction? I always thought the American smile thing was so accurate because all the Americans I met irl smiled a lot and seemed very open towards strangers. And you also seem to really care about your teeth looking perfect inb4 euro teeth jokes

No. 267564

It wouldn't really make sense for Canada to be Metis, since at the time of his creation, native folk weren't granted much representation at all. As a representation of the Canadian state, it'd be inaccurate to

Making him Metis would be this liberal kind of whitewashing of history, like, oh, totally, the indigenous people were involved in this, no kid-stealing involved at all. And given that none of the characters change over time, it's unlikely that his looks would change much, either.

It might score you points with the diversity crowd who don't actually know much about history, but given a slight bit of actual analysis, it'd actually be more problematic to portray him as non-white, not less.

Here's an interesting example: I saw America once portrayed as having Native America as his mommy. First off, there were many Indian groups with varying cultures, having just one is erasure. Second, like Canada, the American state and its people excluded the Indians from their sense of being a nation. And third and most awkward, it was the US that erased many of these groups from the map.

It's a stupid idea.

In general, Hetalia's, like, textbook problematic: not offensive, problematic. Those have overlap, but they're not the same thing. Conceptually full of holes, doesn't make sense, crazy inaccurate, bad lore. At the rotten core of Hetalia's conceptual issues is its extreme inconsistency vis-a-vis the nature of statehood. But I like it anyway, fuck the haters.

Those aren't my own words, female, that's one word I used, and a lot of other words you added, that's not how you use that phrase. I could excuse it if you were like speaking in another language then inserted in that English phrase, that's fine, that's cute, but you're still speaking in English, you must adhere to parallel structure. You are contaminating the air with your lack of parallel structure.

This is more grammar autism more than anything. I've thoroughly loosened up on most syntax issues, I'm liberal with language now, so my family doesn't hate me anymore, but I'm still pretty conservative on principles like parallelism. I have no patience though for forcing upon others problematic concepts such as arbitrary Latinate adposition prescriptivism, to which, in writing, I honestly find myself still adhering. I am a coward, yes, please punish me, daddy, daddy Prime Minister Winston Churchill.

Please don't be offended, I'm not calling you guys haters. I'm the hater, I hate you, no offense. And not newfag, more touristfag than anything [I'm not coming back because duh]. I'm on a Hetalia image source run, and this page came up on Google Images. For what fucking else would I come here? Great pics, guys, please source your shit, I've developed a thing against having pics and not knowing from whence they came.

Hetalia's one of those fandoms with incredible art that amazingly hasn't been soured by the "activist" artists on Tumblr. Even on the Western side, that's commendable. There's this resurgence in art and fandoms that are, like, "problematic" [in the colloquial sense the kids like to use, you know, the one that means nothing], and I am all here for it. Hetalia must rise to destroy the inferior country gijinka shit floating around. Hate that ugly shit.

Oh, and I'm an incredibly cis whatever I am. I'm not telling you just what because I enjoy being an anonymous cipher, I've gotten too used to it. It's a mental security blanet like an online burqa. I should buy a burqa, IRL. Not blue, I don't wanna be insensitive to the Afghans, they're going through some shit.

Can anyone tell me the origin of this meme? It seems fairly recent cause it seems like something that would've been memed like doitsuism if it came from back then
Is this one that you can airbrush yourself? Also they should release life size plushies of characters. I can only imagine what the fans wouldve been like if they released something like that during peak fandom kek

So I'm a basic bitch but I'm obsessed with EnglandxJapan / Asakiku, mostly just because I think they look good together.

It's a prototype! They release these before they finalize the colours to hype fans up.
And yeah those plushies are bald as fuck if you lift their front hair piece. If you search "baldtalia" on tumblr there are shitposts and some (ironic? hard to tell sometimes) fanart for it. I found a few people who mentioned it's from a Hetalia Discord server on both reddit and tumblr so that's the origin. The reddit post included the link to the server in the comments but was over three years old… The newest post on tumblr is approx. 2 months old. So there's a server called "The Hetalia Region" with 3779 members that's been active for 3+ years making bald country memes and fanart. Honestly I respect the dedication.

Asakiku is very fluffy but I found this while looking for more pics, rarepair alert lol

I like it a lot too, his eyes and face look awesome. But it kinda looks like he's smooching a monkey paw because of the shading and I can't unsee it

That is a rarepair! I honestly love rarepairs, and love when people try to ship two 'unlikely' characters together. I think it can create some great dyamics.

I agree! They have this interaction from the comics that's absolutely adorable too lol.
I was just reading how Germany and America are perfect foils of each other and both grew up way too fast, but had polar opposite results for their personalities. I never considered before how those two characters would interact. It's always fun to hear why people like their rarepair ships
