I absolutely cinta Alfie's portrayal. He's hilarious. He's beyond adorable. He's pure awesome. I've never thought ill of his portrayal. Ever. He's pure perfection in my eyes. I just cinta and adore America. <3
I don't find Canada offensive. I think he's fairly accurate, though stereotypical. To be honest, I hate pancake and maple syrup. I prefer figure skating atau ski to hockey. And politically I do not think Canada is 'invisible'. But I do like Polar Bears.
I think the Netherlands is portrayed pretty well. The traits he has really suit our country. It relieves me that he's not often seen with a sigaret. A lot of people think of drugs when someone mentions the Netherlands, but it is so much lebih than that. I also like the fact that he loves bunnies, since Miffy (Nijntje in Dutch) comes from our country. Of course there are also a few things about him that I don't like (one of them is his interest in money), but that doesn't ruin him as a character. The Netherlands isn't one of my favorites, but I still like him.
No, I'm not offended oleh Hetalia's portrayal of Hong Kong. I really like how hetalia has a specific character just for our city. Yes, Hong Kong now belongs to China, but there's still differences between our dialect, legal system and culture due to our past as a British colony.
I also like the way hetalia depicts Hong Kong's post-colonial past with his thick eyebrows reflecting England's curse.
I think that it's really cute how Hong Kong was raise oleh China, and yes, while we are under China's control now, we do have some conflicting opinions - something that hetalia got right to a menit detail!
I think that my country character was great and i don't think there is any problem. My country is quite small and I don't think that there are anyone who care about her. *SAD* Are there anyone who knew her? *Curious*
At first I thought England was a bit offensive because when I first started watching Hetalia, for some weird reason I thought he was going to be the villain! But now that I know his personality more, I absolutely cinta him to BITS!! X3
I cinta the fact that he has imaginary friends and can perform magical sorcery, which obviously represents the fact that England is famous for it's populer fantasi novels. theres also a place in England called the Trough of Bowland which was inspired oleh the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. I've been there a few times and its really pretty <333
And that scene where England gets drunk is just so relatable for the majority of the English population XDD
Oh and anda guys won't understand how much I flipped when they put the Royal Wedding in Hetalia!! :D I was like... adsagdjhgklh wowowowow!! *runs around everywhere telling everyone I know* So proud to be British :3
But one thing I don't understand about him is the eyebrows....just..why!! I never come across people in England with crazy iggy brows!! Well apart from this advert that aired in Britain that had an old man with freaky eyebrows XD
I think hetalia has made me cinta my country even lebih :3 God save the Queen!!~
Well I find America to be offensive but at the same time I like him because seriously, some americans tend to act like that. I feel that he is just a lovable idiot who gets on my nerves just a bit. But hey he's the hero!
hetalia is a stereotypical anime, so it's based off the viewer's opinion. I'm American, so I should/could be offended that America in the anime seems annoying and energetic. But really, I laugh at his "obnoxious" character. It's true, some Americans tend to be loud and obnoxious. For instance, a Canadian might be offended that his/her country in the anime is never recognized, but he/she might not be offended at all; and it's true; Canada does look like it's part of the US. hetalia doesn't only bring out our cultural differences, but it also makes us laugh at our "obnoxious" sides. :)
Well my country Netherlands is a sweet, wonderful and funny character. But I don't like how the fandom portrays him often. They often pretend that Netherlands only cares about money. They pretend he's always serious and for some reasons stoic? And that he is high most of the time too. I don't like the fandoms portray of the Netherlands. I do like his official portray.
I cinta Hungary, she is one of my fav. characters. She's very accurate, though her crazy cinta for Austria is a bit weird, since hungarians actually hated being under the rule of the Habsburgs. And she should be lebih close to Poland, because our nations even share a national friendship hari together :3 But secara keseluruhan, keseluruhan I really cinta her portrayal, good job there Himaruya ;) I'm proud that such an awesome character represents this small, barely known country <3
