Here at home, we forget that somewhere out there are villages where everything’s closed on Sundays and finger-sized dragonflies hum, Robitussin-green, over stone walls three times older than the whole USA.
Clinging to the Ligurian Alps that rear over the Italian Riviera — which Italians call simply la Riviera because riviera, as an Italian noun, mandates no modifiers; thus all other rivieras are pretenders — Seborga is exactly such a village.
Dear Certain Anon(s),
I understand that we do not share the same opinion on that subject. I don’t particularly like using this blog to debate opinions. It’s for sharing official Hetalia news and website updates. I try to leave my opinions out of it unless asked specifically. However, you’re currently trying to bait me. Anonymously. And I have zero respect for that.
I understand your concerns and you’re entitled to your opinion, but you’re going to have to share it on your own blog and spread it that way. It’s not going here. I’m fed up with this harassment. This will be my only reply.
I hope you have a nice day and carry on.
Due to tumblr’s image size restriction, the text may be unreadable. I’ll add a link to bigger images at the hetalia archive in the future.
Here are imgur links to the full sized images, if you’re eager to read them~
What occasion could it be?
The second one from top is without a doubt a tsundere. Third one has the most cunning aura.
Probably an idiot.
Gentosha has released a couple of preview pages for the Hetalia-like WWI Original Guide Book. It will contain 29 characters profiles (as shown above) as well as pages describing the events surrounding World War I.
It is scheduled to be released on September 30, 2014.
Doki Doki Visual has released a (low resolution version of) the cover for the Aldnoah Zero Anthology Comic. The cover was drawn by Hidekaz Himaruya, and is identical to a special illustration card that comes with it when ordered through the Animate online shop.
It is scheduled to be released on October 11, 2014.
Himaruya is back not just in jump, but in his blog too!! :D I’m so happy~~
Here’s a quick translation (pardon any typos):
I’m sorry for being on haitus for so long and for making you all worry!!
I seriously am sorry about this, and thank you for your continuous support.
So this time, I finally have some news for you!
A new series Hetalia World✰Star has started at Jump+!
It will feature countries and historical figures in omnibus styles, there will be roman emperors, impressionists, and also that person you are all so familiar with.
Germany in Jump+ is more gruff.
Right: Psyche yourself up a little more
I’ve once drawn Emperor Nero as a muscular man with black hair, but after some research, it turns out he’s a subculture-loving dude with bright hair and light-blue eyes, and that’s why I’ve drawn him this way in the new series.
[I also drew this!]
ALDNOAH. ZERO Anthology Comic Vol.1 on sale on 11th October.
I drew the cover of this comic!
My editor said something worrisome about this project so I was bracing myself for it, but it turned out to be even wilder than my expectations.
Schoolyard Horror Stories: Monday and Schoolyard Horror Stories: Tuesday, now on sale!
It’s a new horror series by iijima-ssensei where the setting is moved to an elementary school. I drew the cover and character designs for it.
Wednesday will also be full of characters will very unique personalities.
Some stories are eeire, others are strange, some are only scary to the person who experienced it, and others are outright terrifying if you really think about them! There are many different types of stories, it’s a great read!
And now something that’s already been announced.
Rural High school Horror Stories
I am really sorry for the long wait. There is something I want to say about this project, and when I have all the information prepared I will make an announcement about it!
[I went on a trip to Finland!]
I learned more about the partnership among The Nordics, and also how Estonia is a great merchant. I also saw a derpy-looking Moomin.
"I’m a Greeting Moomin at the Finland Airport! Cheese!"
It’s Stinky! Mr. Stinky is so cool…
Oh pfft you’re right! I’m tired -_-‘
