You should see what the more... adventurous people get up to in the summer cons.
...did you see the DBZ characters in prom dresses?
I really have to get round to watching this...
Also, I would recommend reading the manga first, since the anime goes at a breakneck speed and half the "story" is lost.
I think I gave up at around episode 7.
Also, in regards to the photo - i didn't know Ivan owned floral pajamas.*chuckles*
The thing about Hetalia is I have come to expect that it is no longer about history. It's just an anime where the characters are kinda sorta based on countries.
Hetalia's fanservice doesn't bother me soooo so much (not commenting on fanart there -THAT is terrifying). What gets me is how much they waste time. Like, it's a five minute episode, thirty seconds of which go to a theme song, and then they drag out "story" arcs like "America cleaning his shed"... and I don't even remember the American Revolutionary at all in the manga.
It's like... they miss the comic timing that is suggested by the manga. It could be a really good anime, but it's falling a bit short.
I guess I got into it because it was genuine nerd fodder with the odd bit of ho-yay in its manga form. So the anime just doesn't float my boat.
Which isn't to say other people won't find it entartaining.
And yeah, he'd totally own a floral blanket.
I still think it could be an awesome anime. I would have directed it differently though.
(You have taught me well...but not that well).
Sunflowers and alllll!!!
I don't know if I'll be able to go still tomorrow. I have a company Christmas party to go too : (
BUT I HOPE YOU HAVE FUN! 8D
