Hello! I did some work and managed to change up the layout here! Hopefully it's a little easier on the eyes, but if you have any issues or problems with it, please let me know and I'll see what I can do to fix it.
I mimicked the LJ setup as much as I could, but it doesn't have to be that way.

Also, it's been a while, so if anyone wants to make up a new banner for the banner rotation, please let me know. It just needs to be 780px by 200px in size.

Hello! Just so no one is shocked here, I wanted to announce that there is finally going to be an import of content from the LJ Hetalia community to this one. Due to the change in TOS at LJ, it seemed like backing up the community here would be beneficial. Of course due to the TOS change, many people are importing their journals to DW, so there is a long queue to go through before the everything is copied. Hopefully everything will go smoothly.

In addition to this, kylara made me a mod here. I also made fh14 a mod to help out, as we'll probably have to go through and fix tags and stuff.

I think that's it for now until the import goes through. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Let me just remind everyone about when LietPol artwork was on Lithuanian news:

And remember the RoChu artwork on Chinese news?

How about the massive number of people who use Hetalia fanart for their Facebook status updates?
The Unit 731 article with some... gory Hetalia fanart? (I'll only post this if people ask for it, it's pretty NSFW.)

Look, there're even compilations of things like this: http://nanacka.tumblr.com/post/143174770502/i-didnt-know-it-was-hetalia-a-compliation

Let's face it, we're all just political/historical illustrators for the news now. XD

What instances of "They didn't know it was Hetalia" have you seen? Share them here!

Hetalia is now 10 years old! (it's already the 6th in Japan)

Ten years ago, on July 6, 2006, Himaruya posted the first chapter (JP | EN) of the Hetalia webcomic on Kitayume.

Hetalia has gone from a simple webcomic to a published manga and an anime series that has spread in popularity! Currently Hetalia is now Hetalia World Stars and is published online in Shonen Jump Plus (EN).

Let's celebrate Hetalia!
Here's a small questionnaire:
How long have you been in fandom?
What attracted you to Hetalia?
Which strip/episode is your favorite?
Has Hetalia influenced your life in some way?
Who are your favorite characters?

Happy Birthday, Hetalia!!

Other places you can celebrate:
Tumblr users are holding a #10yrsofHetalia anniversary event!
Twitter users are using #ヘタリア10周年 as a way to celebrate!

Hi everyone !
This thread is dedicated to discussions about World Stars chapters, feel free to bring up any point no matter how old the chapter might seem to be, discussions are always gratifying.

I will try to keep this list as up to date as I can (and if this this doesn't turn out to be pointless necromancing), the translations are done by the hetascanlation team, many thanks to them!

I see the first blog update has been posted (not translated yet).
Original blog post
Yay, Italy brothers! :D

This thread is meant for event celebration and chitchat. I hope it will bring in some activity.
Since I'll unfortunately be away most of the weekend (argh) and the team is busy, please keep each other updated in the comments. I hope everyone will have a fun event (I'll try to come in and join the discussion, if there will be one, when I can).
Translations will be posted on Hetascanlations as usual.

Has anyone read the fanfic "Russia Has a Secret?"

It is the end of another year with Hetalia. If I am remembering correctly, the upcoming January marks six years since the first episode of Hetalia was aired online. Thinking back to six years ago, when I first saw Hetalia, I most definitely did not expect I would be entering a fandom of this magnitude and duration. I am posting this thread to reflect, discuss and speculate about a few points I have thought about over the years.

Hello members!

I've received a couple messages lately regarding the community. I understand that some discussion is going on at the LJ [livejournal.com profile] hetalia community regarding a possible move to DreamWidth and merging the two communities, and I've received a kind request from a maintainer there that the LJ mods get involved in this community for that purpose. This is something I would like to discuss with our memberbase here before making such a big decision.

While I still read Hetalia fic and doujinshi, and I'm available to sort out any bad behavior that's reported (which has never happened, so I trust you're all being wonderful!), I admit that I haven't kept up with recent events in canon or fandom. Every community deserves a more attentive touch. Having the LJ maintainers get involved here seems like a good way to provide that. And if they were to get involved, then I would essentially be passing the community over to them.

So this is an open discussion post in regards to facilitating a move here and in having the LJ maintainers become maintainers here. If you have any feelings or input, please leave a comment on this post or PM me. I will appreciate your opinions. For PMs, I will respect your anonymity. I look forward to hearing from you!

On a less intense note, tags! I've been informed that we could use some new ones. See our current tags here. Please request needed tags on this post, and it would be a big help if you included the prefix!

Okay, so it's apparent that frequent updates will be a definite problem here (note: This is a neutrally stated observation, not a complaint. I'm totally including my own nonposting lack of activity in this). However, since jammerlea was so kind to made a sticky post with links to the most important sites to check for updates, plus the fact that the activity in recent update threads was mostly low, I'm not sure if the lack of updates posted directly to the comm is still a problem, or not so much.

In addition to this question, because it got me thinking: What exactly do people expect from or desire for this comm? What would be interesting to most of the members or visitors here? Obviously, one thing this comm is very nice for is fan discussions. We could have more of those. Personally, I like them very much, so if anyone has a good theory or topic for a discussion, please never be afraid of posting it. (I'm not a mod, but I think they would be fine with this. If not, please correct me.)

What else would be interesting for the majority of us? Future events? Should the main comm hold event threads again where chitchat between updates is allowed? There were problems with this in the past, but now that fewer people are around, I think the thread pace could be more managable.
Other ideas? What kind of things do you other members think would be nice to have (and good to create some interaction within the threads)? What do you mods think would be possible, or what do you think might look nice on paper, but actually be a rather bad idea?
[identity profile] pink-cass.livejournal.com
I was reminded of this earlier today and thought it might be a good topic to discuss here, as we are still attempting to revive the comm.

So. Bad friends trio. For those of you not knowing what that is, it's one of two common terms for France, Prussia and Spain. It is also the official name for the three.
Anyway, the other common name, and the one I see more often in fanworks, is bad touch trio. This has caused some controversy because, well, it supposedly refers to the three of them being perverts. More precisely, it may or may not refer to them molesting people (and even more precisely, in Spain's case, some people point to this choice of words to claim... things. Don't even make me say it - if you don't already know what I mean, you don't want to know x.x).

So now you'll see we have a pinned post with Hetalia related links. It's still liable to change, but I figure this was a good start. The top sites with the banners are the best places to find info/updates/scanlations.

It's sad seeing none's into that fandom anymore.

Life you see the new Hetaween posts and there are like... 0 comments. Looks like Hima-papa's losing all his fans during the last 2 years. It's true he doesn't upload regularly anymore but it's more like... everyone's gone suddenly.

I'm afraid he doesn't attend to peoples interests anymore (well he always did as he pleased) but now he brings all that historical persons into the comics and none bats an eye anymore.

I'm quite upset about it. There are no discussions in here anymore... as well as the Hetalia Blog Community ... [livejournal.com profile] bamboothicket2

Hope to see you guys there...!

Hardly known Hetalia fact:
Romano's "Chigiii!!!" should actually be pronounced like "kichi" ['kidʒi] and was a Roman princely family. As well there's the official residence of the Prime Minister of the Italian Republic called 'Palazzo Chigi'. And there's also a Chigi Chapel at the Basilica of Santa Maria del Popolo... and so many more stuff that refers to the Chigi family... (hell, my head still says chigiiii not kichi xD).

But I just wanted to share this nice fact (for a while now) and the little pleasure I feel when recognizing such nice details Himaruya's left to characters or quotations ... even if they've the wrong pronounciation aka. 'are hidden'.

I've been trying to look for Hetalia fics in French. Unfortunately, I haven't used French in a long time and it's taking me longer than usual to find great fics. Does anybody have any French Hetalia fic recommendations? I'm looking for a master list. I don't mind what the story's about so as long at it's well-written.

I also don't mind if it's written that's not French either because I might be able to recommend it to a friend.

I was just wondering what do you guys really want to see from this event?
New countries?
Existing nations personalities developed?
Lots and lots of fanservice?

For me, I want to see Australia and NZ (preferably when they were young, or in drag). But really, I am just glad Hima is doing this, and hopefully he takes his time and enjoys it as well :)

(ps, and we having this event at the event page or just here on the main page?)

I know that [when the time comes for the pre-orders to be announced] us international folk will be out of luck thanks to Rightstuf's weird and imo, skeevy policies (they want a photocopy of your credit card?? Um??), so I was wondering if there would be anyone willing to set up a group order for us?

I'm not even sure if it's allowed/would be possible (I'm wondering if Rightstuf has an order limit to prevent stuff like this maybe?), but I'm wondering if any of our American and/or Canadian friends would be willing to help us out ;w;

I'm also making this thread just to see if there's any interest in general, or if everyone else already has their "connections" XDDDD;

TL;DR: Anyone willing to set up a group order for when Rightstuf puts up pre-orders for volume 4 and 5?

Putting this under a cut, but here we go- my second entry, ever, on livejournal, but in case some of you haven't seen it on tumblr, this is pretty important.
first things first- this was a disaster. an absolute disaster. Let’s ignore all the face sucking and stuff, and get down to the real thing.
Please forgive me if I have messed anything up- I do not use livejournal often.Read more... )

Does anybody know how the name “Bad Touch Trio” came to be used for France, Spain and Prussia? (It’s “Bad Friends Trio” in Japanese; akuyuu (悪友) translates to “bad friends,” not “bad touch,” so it’s not a translation of the Japanese name.) Was it mixing up “Bad Friends Trio” with the title of the Bloodhound Gang song “Bad Touch,” a corruption of “Bad Friends Trio” with the insinuation that the three of them are perverts/molesters, was the actual term for “bad touch” used to describe the trio in Japanese somewhere (and if so, where?), or was it something completely different?
