Hetalia- Beside Each Other Till the Rain Stops by FrozenSeashell Hetalia- Beside Each Other Till the Rain Stops by FrozenSeashell
An image that I have always had in mind when thinking about the historical aspects of MapleTea.


Though Himaruya-san has lightly touched on Canada's role in the Revolutionary War in one of the 2011 Christmas requests, there is still much potential for Hetalia to explore the Canadian subjectivity during the American Revolution.

In a sense the UK-Can relationships are not only defined by their bilateral alliances during war and peace, but also their shared psychological rivalry against American cultural influence.




By the way, Canada's shoulder band is worn in the opposite direction as Himaruya-san's drawings since in the uniform references I have found, the bands are worn in either directions (I guess it depends on the owner's dominant hand). So as a compositional decision, I drew it this way consciously.

I don't ship it, but its so gorgeous.
Poor England, he is so used to being on his own since he was a kid, and now he lost the biggest part of his life that took the loneliness away..

...America you wanker.. ;n;

Yes there should be something about the Canadian/England side of thing and i think that Canada should have been more present in the Allies(Hetalia version).. they focused so much on America that's it is not even funny. Canada was there before America in both WW. Granted they were forced(Dominion) in WW1 but in WW2 declared war on Germany as their own Nation. There are Monuments in both France and in Netherlands to the Canadian soldiers. It is a shame Canada was not more represented in Hetalia.

Beside If they do the England/Canada part they should do France/Canada as well. :D

It seems like in Hetalia Canada's peaceful image is more emphasized, maybe that explains why the Canadian contribution in the WWs is underrepresented.
Given America's dominance nowadays, the focus on him is really reasonable, but still as a person growing up learning Canadian history I really hope to see in Hetalia some of the WW history you have mentioned.

The Birz version of Hetalia mentioned a little on the colonial period in Canada, so hopefully they can expend on that :)

Nice drawing! You brought out the mood well and almost drove me to tears. We don't get to learn much about Canada in the series, so I hope future episodes will show more of him.

Since there isn't any official English publication of it yet, it is not as widespread in the English speaking countries. Birz is a Japanese comic magazine which Hetalia now has a serialization on it.

Maybe it is because the Canadian history isn't taught in detail around the world except for in Canada, so Canada's loyalty isn't too well known.
