I call this Busby’s Podcast because it was CURSED! It took Crys, SJ, and me the better part of a year to schedule recording it. A year! That’s like… almost 10% of a decade!
Finally, we got it done! (and it’s an hour and a half long, so you get your money’s worth).
One of the most awesome things about the Hetalia fandom is how people use the series to educate one another (yes, really). Here are some wonderful fan-made comics about the histories of…
Mexico’s role in the Spanish Civil War
The Exploration Age (particularly Spain)
The Hungarian Revolution
The Thirty Years War
America’s response to Pearl Harbor
Here are the starts of the doujinshi, 1914 and 1939.
And, you know, lots of others. Loooootta good fan comics out there.
As was mentioned on the podcast, here is Himaruya’s apology to his fans for the late updates.
I was right that there is a cannonball embedded in a tree near the Plains of Abraham. I was wrong that that’s in Ottawa. It’s in Quebec City.
Crys, SJ, and I highly recommend the following Hetalia fan artists and fanfic writers:
Talkjive (NOT “jiveturkey”)
Here’s a song!
