Be gentle, yo. ;;

Though I was thinking of making a permanon post. The only thing is, I feel like it'll never be used and I don't have many public posts and I'm not really that active in any communities that anyone outside of my Flist would ever bother. XD;;

Oh~ And~ Happy birthday to [livejournal.com profile] wild_silvestris ~! Or I guess [livejournal.com profile] innate_autumn  now~ Whichever you prefer~

I'll be working on my trick from [livejournal.com profile] goldentruth  soon~
But first I'm-a catch up on everything I missed this weekend~

I'll start with the BIG NEWS.

SO GUYS GUESS WHAT I FOUND THURSDAY.



DLKFJDSLKFJ. I FOUND IT. I WAS SO HAPPY GUYS YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW.

Except when I left I'd only taken five dollars to prevent me from spending more than what I need for my orders. However, considering one of the things I'd ordered was THIS, I was like, "...WHAT. REALLY?"

And so I ran all the way from the book store back to the dorm and then back to the book store again. OTL

So then I called the nerd store and cancelled my order for it, but then I told them to pre-order volume 2 for me instead. =3=

To be honest, I really wanted this manga before the club fair so I could use it for the display.
WHICH I DID. SUCCESS.

Club fair went well~
...And the info card doodles are still on the home compy and not here. OTL
It's really not that important, I guess, but I'd still like to show you. ;;

Aaaand~ I need to catch up on Panty and Stocking.
Aaaand~ I need to get back to writing fanfic/RPing. It feels like it's been forever since I've written anything. "OTL

I was going to leave you an obscure anonymous comment, but then I realized I'd have to log out, and I'm feeling lazy right now.
SRY, BB. D:

Thank you so much for the birthday wishes, doll /squishes to death ♥

Goodness, Hetalia.. the fandom I hate and at the same time I'm curious about it. And it results in me stalking the Hetalia threads on 4chan from time to time.

You're welcome~! <3

Admittedly, I don't know that much about the fandom as a whole because it's far too large and fast-paced for my tastes. [Given, the Pokemon fandom is also huge, but they don't post every five seconds. =A=;;]

I just stick to mooching off their fansubs/translations and saving pretty pictures. =3=

You don't always need the fandom to enjoy the series, right~? :D
This peace is what all true warriors strive for~

I find myself intrigued by Hetalia. What little I know of the series is gleaned from either frenzied fans or fanatical opposition, and one can't help but question the accuracy of such sources. What information can you provide about the series (and its horde of fans)?

Well, simply put, it's history and interactions between different countries shown through cute guys representing said countries. (And some adorable girls too, though they are rarer. =3=)

...But yeah, it seems like people either love the series or think:
1. It's incredibly racist.
2. The fandom is horrible, therefore it too must be horrible.

So... yeah.

And while the series does play on stereotypes a lot and I can understand the whole "it's racist" standpoint, it picks on EVERYONE and most fans adore their country's character.

Unfortunately, it seems the fandom has attracted a lot of... younger, more impulsive fans who don't realize that the characters of this series represent ENTIRE COUNTRIES and therefore REAL PEOPLE but at the same time are not literally the way everyone from that country acts and it's kind of resulted in a lot of... uh... I don't know if "unintentional racism outside of the canon" is the right way to put it, but... *facepalm*


Though I personally love the series. =3=
I would reccommend reading it/watching it without paying attention to the crazed horde. Besides, one episode is five minutes, and Funimation has high quality subs uploaded to YouTube, and the original webcomic is free and available to the public, so it wouldn't be hard just to preview it for yourself~

Join me, Link, and I will make your face the grrreatest in Koridai...or else you will DIE!

\o/!

I honestly wasn't expecting that bookstore to even have it in stock. Their manga section is tiny and consists mostly of Death Note, One Piece, Yu-Gi-Oh, and Naruto. But then again, it does seem like they've been getting a few different things lately~

*hugs her beautiful country comiccc~<333*
