(I don’t like her. She annoys me. But she’s not as bad as Twilight Sparkle.)
DON’T DERP AT ME IN THAT TONE OF VOICE
(Fatal error…. We finally broke it!)
(Also, I made a Hetalia Marching Band, if anyone is interested.)
(Twilight Sparkle is just…bahh.)
I really wish I knew what was going on here, aru.
Mom, why ‘ya being so quiet?
(FINALLY. I already scouted it out. 951?
And yes. I am extreeeemely interested.)
(If you can, go to dA and find the user gen-winter. If you look up hetalia general winter and click “newest” and find a picture of chibi general winter, you can get to my channel.)
(Wow your art sucks
(My art has always sucked. I spend hours on art, yet have never had the money for actual art lessons. The classes offered at my school do not work with my schedule.
I usually give up on most of my art. I am terrible.)
I still completely don’t uetsrndand because I have read Hetalia and it seems like you haven’t yet. Korea is included in Hetalia, of course, but even so I’ve yet to see ANYTHING that even remotely touches upon the past grievances between the two countries in the first two volumes of the series that I’ve worked on. Just getting upset over nothing, however, is pointless. Why get upset at a man who is more history-conscious that most of his fellow citizens and not even remotely responsible for any of the atrocities committed? For writing such a manga? Wouldn’t it be more offensive if your country was purposefully left out because he didn’t want to approach the issue?I don’t think I have to tell you, since you’ve posted here before, that I’m also the daughter and grandchild of Holocaust victims. I wasn’t exactly about to give the manga a free pass on it’s portrayal of WWII until I read it through and saw that Himaruya treated it with a lot of care and sensitivity. I’m actually really proud of that moment. It showed a lot of thought about how sensitive the issue at hand is.Taking the side of the Koreans is fine by me, but having read this manga, I say attacking it for portraying Korea in a historical manner (and trust me, Himaruya is researching what he writes about) is nothing short of unnecessary. You’re whining about racism and unfair treatment that doesn’t exist here, every character in the whole damn manga acts based on some stereotypes (usually not the bad ones.) Even in Hetalia, Korea dislikes Japan, but Himaruya doesn’t ignore that Japanese and Korean pop culture exchange trends and various other things. He doesn’t ignore that Korea has a bright future in technology, the arts and many other things. He doesn’t make Korea out to be a bad country at all, which is the beauty of what he’s doing: every country depicted has it’s own problems, strong points and personalities. Sure, every country also has it’s bad points, but Himaruya is fair in this treatment as well. Every single country gets bad points. No one is free from blame.If you’re going to hate on Japan for not making things right with Korea, please do it AWAY from this post and AWAY from Hetalia itself. This isn’t a manga about hatred and violence at all and if you think for a second that it is, I would like to kindly suggest you read it before you keep doing so.Also, it’s up to Himaruya whether he wants to do manga with darker themes, but I do not think Hetalia is the platform he should do it on. There’s just too much that could be taken as offensive in that sense. While there are some tense moments in the manga, I feel the light nature of the storytelling prevents Hetalia from being truly offensive.
