I’m glad we’re asking Pixiv artists for permission to repost their work. But the idea that we shouldn’t repost deleted art is ridiculous.
There’s a lot of great fanart we’ll never see again without reposting. When they move on from a fandom, Japanese artists have a tendency to delete all the works they made for it.
We should always credit the artist, but if they threw their hard work away, I don’t see why they would care.

To be honest, I see PruHun as more of a friendship/rivalry thing more than a romantic ship. People who ship the pairing often ignore the extent of the rivalry and make them bicker as an act of love, even thinking that Hungary has genuine sympathy for Prussia after she smacks him with a frying pan.

The only time Ukraine ever seems to show any anger, assertiveness or even backbone is when she’s defending her siblings and well, I’m not so fond of that.
There’s nothing wrong with being kind and putting family and friends first. But it only seems to designate her as a satellite character, and Ukraine is a nation. Not all of Ukraine’s history consists of protecting Belarus and Russia. If Ukraine never cared about herself, she wouldn’t be alive.
And… I also think she’s secretly the most mentally screwed of the three. Between the grand cultural center of Kiev burnt to the ground, invasions, occupations, betrayals, mass killings, and famines, she’s had it worse than Russia. I’m not sure how it plays out, but she is far from the “pure” one.

I really wish that people could read ‘Crossdresser with a Crush’ by HoneyBeeGirl94 on Fanfiction. Her fic may not be the most perfect one in terms of writing, but she does a awesome job at writing the Hetalia characters. Heck, she managed to to squeeze in almost all of the Hetalia characters in it without making them flat and including the forgotten characters (Tibet and Mongolia). She gave every Hetalia character justice in the fic. This girl and her deserves to have more reviewers. So please read her fics! They’re worthy to read.

I honestly can no longer stand the Fanon version of Turkey. He’s just so… bad. Most fans make him so super obnoxious or so over-sexual it’s just really degrading, honestly. Either that, or they make him a complete jerk who abuses Greece heartlessly.

For a while, I just couldn’t stand the character in general—everything about him made my skin crawl.

But watching season 5 helped me to like Canon Turkey again. And so, to me, canon Turkey will ALWAYS be better than fanon Turkey.

I find it depressing how some really talented and hard-working writers and artists are neglected by this fandom, while blogs dedicated to copying and pasting from the wiki get thousands of followers.

I think Italy x Japan is a really cute pairing and needs more love.




Same goes with Finland x Iceland.

I absolutely despise how Hungary is portrayed when it comes to fanfiction. She’s either portrayed as a bitch who keeps breaking Prussia’s heart, a whore, a mindless yaoi fangirl, or a girl who’s obsessed with Austria. It’s annoying!

I really dislike how rabid haters and people who generally dislike the anime start bashing how us, the fans express our love for it. There is this stamp on deviantART that explicitly states that they came to deviantART, not hetaliaART. It doesn’t make sense because I see pictures of ponies and extremely overrated shit flying around the internet, and nobody bats an eye. Yet, when it has to do with Hetalia, everybody goes insane. I’m not saying I like the rabid fan girls either. They are a bit crazy, but the main thing is how the haters see all of us as these crazy people. I viewed a rather pointless argument about why Hetalia is apparently bad, and it stated that anyone who watches Hetalia is a creepy 12 year old girl who masturbates to cartoons. Can we all just get along and not hate? We hate on other fandoms because they have transgressed us with their hate. We are free people, and we have short lives, can we not take the time to enjoy what we love and leave what we hate be?

When People Apply Hetalia to Real Life
It bothers me when people are unable to separate real life countries from Hetalia’s countries, mainly when it concerns sensitive, real life events like World War Two.
For example, people see Hetalia Japan who “senses the rotation of the moon and reframes from speaking” as an accurate version of Japan in WW2. In real life Imperial Japan did horrible things to Chinese citizens— things that cause politic distrust to this day— while being fanatical about its greatness. Hetalia, as a light-hearted anime, shouldn’t be applied to actual history events by fans.
Yes, I do see the benefits of Hetalia showing that we are all people underneath our countries, but there needs to be a recognition that what happens in Hetalia is not what happened/happens in real life.
