Himaruya's Production Notes On Italy

(from the same source of Prussia's and UK's)

・A useless young man of a southern country who loves girls, delicious food and the sun.

・His emotions are intense and he is a bit of a crybaby. His hobbies are drawing and siesta.

・If you approach him he seems to make a "Ve~" sound. His crying voice sounds somewhat like when you yell against an electric fan.

・The curl is "the sexual something of the Italians" (erogenous zone!)

・This goes for Germany as well, but because he didn't grow up much at one point of time, I made his apparent age lower than his neighbors'.

・Nicely said he is quite big hearted, badly said he is a sloppy personality.

・He has a good head for business, but since a lot happened and there is his brother who lost his motivation to do anything, their house's economy is slightly difficult.

・He has a habit of relying on Germany. Also, it's a mystery why his neighboring countries pamper him.

・When he ended up in the hub of the world's attention because of his fight with Ethiopia, he was helped by America, France, Germany etc. so in the end he didn't get hit at all.

・He is the country that is the motive to draw this comic.

・Physically he is not not that weak, but because of "there are no cute girls watching", "the enemy is scary" and such reasons he's useless. Ceras SanMarina 17:53, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

Production Notes In Articles?

Minor edits & Talk Pages asking before I do something stupid seems to be my forte.
Should we include production notes in their own section on the actual page, or just do as we've been doing and scatter them into wherever they fit?

Citations needed

Going through this article and adding citations, also noting where citations are needed where I can't find them:

  • Post where Himaruya gives out Human names (or even an archive post on the Hetayume forums?)
  • Post where Himaruya gives Italy's age
  • The gag illustration where the change in Italy's curl is noted
  • An artwork where Italy's eyes are gray

Will add more later -FH14 14:00, 13 August 2012 (EST)

If my knowledge is correct, the human names and ages were grouped together in some old posts dating back to around '07 and early '08. The original posts have long since been deleted. Only scanlated copies like these profiles from Hetalia Indexes are the closest thing we'll get to the original thing; which in this case the info was grouped together with the Volume 2 scanlated profiles. Not entirely sure on those last two. Maybe Tara or Wisnia might know? Icelilly 14:56, 13 August 2012 (EST)

Curl gag: I'll dig through my folder for the grey-eyed Italy picture later. I'm sure I have it, it's one of the kitayume front page pics. Tarafishes 13:45, 14 August 2012 (EST) Whoops I disappeared. I also found a picture of HRE with brown eyes! A lot of the eye colors in that particular picture are off, actually. His eyes are kinda grey here. Also in the picture here they're grey. Like, really grey. Even more grey than the first picture. Germany's are too small to tell, but they might be grey, too.

Do you know if the Italy Chibi image is embeded anywhere that I could site? I'd rather not hotlink the image. (and thanks btw!) -FH14 10:34, 28 August 2012 (EST)
I'm sure it is(since it's hosted on the geocity and all,) but I can't seem to find it. . .it's pretty old going by the style, so I can check again, and I'll go through the older things. I'd see if it's in the gallery but Himaruya's gallery is still down. Tarafishes 13:06, 28 August 2012 (EST)
Found it! For once, TinyEye was useful. Icelilly 13:34, 28 August 2012 (EST)
I entirely forgot about tinyeye! Well, it is only supposed to find where a specific image url was used, so of course it was useful this time. \o/ Tarafishes 06:07, 29 August 2012 (EST)

Designing Clothes

Is legit or its it just fanon? I don't remember seeing anything like this but there's so many character notes for the World 8 that I can't keep track. -FH14 (talk) 22:10, 15 December 2012 (CST)

It's from the Simple Character Profiles. Tarafishes (talk) 22:13, 15 December 2012 (CST)
