I do like some Hetalia character songs, but, truthfully, I think I like some of the original soundtracks played during the episodes more.
I hate France being portrayed as a rapist as much as anybody - an entire country with a long, rich history, full of millions of actual people, should never be portrayed as one. Not to mention it’s boring and predictable as fuck.
But I’m sick of the “he said he only supports CONSENSUAL love!” justification. Right, because France would never lie. Look at this panel - someone could easily use it to argue that France is a rapist, as much as that flaunted around, out-of-context quote can say he’s not.
I think fans should just accept that Himaruya delved into rape humor early on (which is nothing uncommon in fanservicey manga, especially BL) but now he knows better and has given France much more development and character beyond being a shallow lech. Just like Russia is no longer a cutesy sociopath giving woobie life scars.
I never really understood “moe” China. To me, it just doesn’t make much sense.
I mean, when you put all of traditional Chinese history together and put it all in one character, the final product just doesn’t seem like it would fit as girly or innocent or feminine, even if that character was a woman.
Is it just the long hair that sets it off…? Or the Hello Kitty? (Never really got why China liked Hello Kitty, either. But, whatever.) To me he just doesn’t really seem girlish or even uke. Sure, he’s definitely not the manliest character in the series, but that’s only my opinion.
And also, on a sidenote, I don’t really like girly China anymore because I think it has been overdone too much. Kind of like pairing helpless Canada with everyone in the series. You can like moe China, I couldn’t care less and it’s not like I’ll judge you, but I personally don’t.
I prefer him manly.

I don’t like how Spain is darkened in season 5. No i’m not racist, i’m spaniard myself,but if hetalia characters are supposed to represent countries, they should do it as close as possible. Spaniards are white, the way he appears in season 5 looks like he could represent a latin american country.
I very much prefer Den/Ice over Den/Nor or Nor/Ice. (x)
I rarely respect Hetalia “fans” who only watch the anime, especially if they don’t even know the manga/webcomic exists
Sadly this seems apply to most of Tumblr’s Hetalia fandom, going by how many notes scenes from the anime get compared to scenes from the manga
Sorry to break your little hearts hetalia fans, its said America doesn’t do action unless he gets something out of it.
When people complain about how this fandom has a horrible reputation I can’t help but laugh. I wonder when this fandom won’t be filled with smart-ass UsUk fans, people who think pedophilia is funny, and just plan horrid fangirls raging on the world.
While I am a BIG fan of Fem!Characters.. the one that seriously pisses me off is Fem!England. I mean, just look at it! They give her a big poofy dress and obnoxious pigtails. And worst of all, the fandom named her “Alice.” Are you serious? There were so many different routes this design could have gone. The only thing I honestly think they got across was the quiet, book-worm type.. that I can see. But then you just merge it with the 2P! and you’ve got a bad Alice in Wonderland fanfic..
