i think people need to realize that hetalia focuses more on random bits of history here and there that are generally looked over by books. not to mention hetalia portrays nations in a humorous manner, like in a way that makes you realize, “hey, people in other countries are people too.” yanno what i mean? it’s not about the war itself, it’s about the things that happened during it, the relationships, the people that went through it.
how many of your history classes went over the dandelion coffee thing, for example? it’s something silly, but it was still a great achievement for the people who discovered it! hetalia focuses more on the human parts of nations rather that the governmental moves of it, i guess, is what im trying to say here.
not that it doesn’t touch upon battles, though, because it clearly does. i just don’t see how hetalia, a humorous, almost slice-of-life (or earth rather) anime/manga can handle something like the holocaust, and i don’t see why it needs to. you can respect something by choosing not to adapt it as well, and i honestly think it’s a good thing we don’t bring it up in canon.
and that whole “the axis powers did nothing” argument is such bullshit like both sides of the war did terrible things IN ANY WAR WE’VE HAD??? yet the allies are treated just like the axis and no one gripes about them.
same goes for older wars. nations are comprised of people, and that’s the part hima chooses to represent. anyone would be pissed to see their country portrayed in an evil and demeaning fashion????

THIS NEEDS TO BE READ BY EVERYONE THANK
Okay so I was re-watching Hetaoni (because I hate myself I guess) when I decided to do some math.
Each number on the floor represents the number of survivors in the group that have reached that room. Therefore, each number is a different time loop. I counted them, (but knowing me I probably over or under counted, so give or take a few), and got 83.
That means Italy has been through at least 83 time loops.
But I’m not stopping there! I multiplied 83 by five, assuming that the average time loops lasts about five days. Then, I divided that by 365, the number of days in the year. I got a total of 1.136. That means Italy has been going through this for about… a year. Which is sad. But you wanna know what makes it worse?
That’s only counting the number of times he’s made it to this room.
Not only that, but there are a couple 1’s on the ground, meaning that only Italy made it to the room. But we learned in the earlier scene that you need a least like three people to enter the room. (2 on certain numbers, one to click the switch.)
That means Italy had to drag the bodies of his friends up here on more than one occasion
plus one more image of America!

I apologize for worrying you all during my long absence. Thank you for all the messages while I was away. I have big news to share with you all.
My news series “Taisho Romance Mr. Demon Stopppp!!” will be serialized in Jump SQ from August 3rd. There are parts that aren’t yet perfect but I’d make me happy if you enjoy it as well!
Let’s enjoy Hetalia and Mr. Demon together!
[Under the Cut]
I’m sorry for worrying everyone for such a long time. Also, thank you everyone…
>What is the animal in the drawing for your new serialization? A dog?
>China has too few appearances!! Can I request you increase his appearances?
>When America laughs it says, “DDDDDDD,” how are you supposed to pronounce that!?
>I’m so excited volume 6 is being released!
Thank you very much! During the hand over, some things got lost but an old manuscript appeared and it’s being compiled right now. The Drama CDs that come with Hetalia volumes are always long, and this time it’s also long. This time characters that haven’t been in lots of CDs will also appear. Please wait a little longer for new Hetalia.
>Has anything changed recently?
New lines have appeared on my palm!
Also when thinking about Italian characters it usually ends up like this…
The rejected cover look for America. The balance of his face and mouth are a bit off in this version. The Italy cover for this time wasn’t supposed to be beat by Louise-san…
i love how the fandom has made prussia out to be all cool and confident and smart and sexy when in reality he’s like
(art is official, I believe)
KESESESESE!! He does!! Especially when he puts too much faith on shit like GPS and Google maps!!
