CANADA DAY by dragonnova CANADA DAY by dragonnova
Happy Canada Day!!

This is for ~Roxas4ever who reminded me of something I'd be kicking myself for later if I had forgotten. Because I was really wanting to draw Canada... and his bear... just for this day... for all my friends who are Canadian :glomp:

Technically I'm not late... technically it's 11:20 on July 1 where I am RIGHT NOW.. so I'm not late.... yeah I'm kinda late I'm so sorry guys T.T

WOOOO Matthew Williams swoops in and takes the first Hetalia pic in my gallery out of the clutches of Alfred Jones!!

Alfred is glaring at me right now... >.< oops... well hey at least Matt gets recognized first!!

Matthew aka Canada from Hetalia belongs to Hidekaz Himaruya

PS.. I hope I got his uniform right... >.<

mmmm I love red....

I've never seen Hetalia before but a girl in my class watches it and every time I talk about the actual country Canada, she says "who?" and she says it like their is no such thing as Canada. The point of the questions is... Is there a character in Hetalia that represents Canada?
dragonnova Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2012  Student General Artist
AWWW! Poor Matthew (Canada)... LOL yes, there actually is a character that is supposed to be Canada. He looks just like America but he looks smaller (because he hunches a bit to make himself look smaller) and he's adorably sweet and quiet. It's a running joke in the series that he's so quiet that he blends in and nobody 'sees' him. And if someone says "hey, we're missing someone... Where's Canada?" Everyone answers 'who?'

If he IS noticed, he's often mistaken for America and beaten up or threatened (Like when he met Cuba). America notices him of course, but he's often kinda mean to him and teases him.

Poor Canada needs more love. T.T

Wow thanks for clearing that up for me ^^ it's just that everytime I tell this girl that watches hetalia that I have been to Canada (Im American and im in New Zeland) she says "Who?" and it just annoys me, then when I ask her why she says "It's funny cause you don't get it" but thanks to you now I do!
Thank you!

>.< Oh goodness yes... I've been in that sort of situation numerous times. The being on the outside of various inside fandom jokes. Well I'm really glad I could help clear that up!

I know right! she watches that show Sherlock and makes jokes like "I owe you a fall" and stuff like that.

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww so cute!

Lol, this is funny because in the show Canada is all but invisible yet he's your first art of Hetalia instead of the loud America. XD I don't know why that fact struck me funny but it did. That little bear is so adorable and I always love your super skinny noodle-legged style, it's just so awesome! You know, it's thanks to you that I started watching Hetalia...don't know whether to thank you or curse you for giving me yet another fandom to obsess over. Lol, nah I thank you for showing me this amazing show. Now that I think about it, it was you that turned me onto Soul Eater as well. XD You madam, have excellent taste in anime!

So, um... Forgive my ignorance, but what the heck is Hetalia about? I've only seen the name floating around so I thought it was some perverse show (name is kinda close to Hentai, lol... yahI'mweird) so I avoided it lol
dragonnova Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2010  Student General Artist
LOL oh that's good... and actually a lot of the fandom does tend to make Hetalia Hentai... T.T

anyway, Hetalia is basically a web comic (turned anime and manga) about personified countries. Like the above character is called Matthew but he's Canada. It's mostly focused on WWI and WWII (and present day a bit too) covering major events in history with vague plots and humor.

Truth be told I was afraid of this series for the longest time. I thought it would be hideously insulting not only to me but many others (the title meaning alone was a turn off for me.) But once I started reading it I realized it was nothing like I expected and it actually had me looking up historical events to compair them to his work. Thankfully Hidekazu Himaruya doesn't touch on really horrible things (such as the holocaust, if he had joked about that I would have been furious...)

I can point you to translations of his web comic if you like, and Funimation has started showing subs of the anime on their site... it's really a very interesting series.
Maruki Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
I hate it when 'fans' do that to a good show -.-

Huh. I never heard of the premise so I didn't fear insults like you mentioned here (What's the title's meaning?)
I'll definately look into watching some of the subbed anime. What sites do you recommend for good translations?
dragonnova Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2010  Student General Artist
Well the title hetalia means 'useless Italy' a play on the word Itaria (italy) and either heta (unskilled) or hitorizumo (futile and useless) not sure about that but its a pun.

I really love it anyway though, so yeah some of it is a little synical but there's still a lighthearted humor to it that I like. Anyway you can read the translations of his web comic here
the manga books are being released by Tokyopop... someday *rolls eyes*
and Funi has the subs here (5 minute episodes, I think maybe try a few and if it hooks you XD good, if not.. well that's okay too. ^_^ )
