hetalia vol 6 ordered
i have no life
We are excited to announce that Hetalia Axis Powers Volume 6 will be available on May 13, 2014.
Thanks to a special arrangement with TOKYOPOP and Hetalia’s Japanese publisher Gentosha Comics,
The first print run of this book will include an six-page color insert. Once the initial print run sells out, the volume will be transitioned to Right Stuf’s print-on-demand program.
Hetalia Axis Powers, created by Hidekaz Himaruya, started as a Japanese web comic. It utilizes personification to represent countries and their participation in historical events, while poking fun at cultural stereotypes. It was later adapted into a manga (released by TOKYOPOP) and an anime series that is currently available to North American audiences on DVD and Blu-ray from FUNimation Entertainment.
The first five volumes of the Hetalia manga are available now. Volumes 1-6 can be ordered exclusively through rightstuf.com. For more information about Hetalia Axis Powers, visit hetalia.rightstuf.com.
OH MY GOD PELICAN BOOKS
IM SO EXCITED
Who picks what books are published in special editions and certain publishing houses? I want that job so badly
WHY AM I LAUGHING SO HARD WHY IS MY SENSE OF HUMOR THIS TERRIBLE
eh heh heh
Some FREAKING AWESOME Harry Potter fan art of the marauders creating the map and Fred and George later discovering it.
Well you must be the life of the party
It comforts me to look at the dissertation topics of past PhD candidates on the Teutonic Order/Medieval Lithuania
maybe my idea for a thesis isn’t so crazy
I am going to inflict all yo dashes with my answers (and if I simultaneously get to procrastinate studying, well then I guess I’ll have to make that sacrifice)
- My native language: English!
- Which languages do you know: English, and a little bit of German (which I’m picking up again in formal classes in the fall—I’m so excited!)
- Which languages are you learning, or want to learn: I’m learning Lithuanian (starting this summer) and German (starting in the fall); as for the languages I want to learn, the list seems to grow every day. The top five languages I want to learn most immediately are Dutch, Polish, Norwegian, Catalan, and Italian, but I would also jump at the chance to learn Danish, Finnish, Swedish, Romansch, Flemish, Hebrew, and Hungarian.
- Does anyone in my family speak a language I don’t: my aunt and cousins speak some Swahili, my mom speaks Yiddish, and all my maternal family can read Hebrew (my dad’s side of the family were originally from England, and by the time my dad was born were pretty Americanized, so languages weren’t as popular among them—also they were very poor so language lessons/using college time to take languages wasn’t really an option)
- Your favorite language to listen to: Portuguese. My friend Ryan speaks it to us all the time, and I love how dynamic it sounds to my untrained, English-speaking ear.
- My least favorite language to listen to: I’m not sure. Russian maybe?
- Your favorite word in your native language: Undulate. It sounds exactly like what it’s describing.
- Your favorite word in your second language: die Fata Morgana, which means mirage, or kaffee, because I love coffee!
- Your favorite word in a language you don’t really speak: nykke (Norwegian), which means whim
- A list of your favorite words in any language: ahhhh I don’t know that many words
- A song you like in a language other than English: Tulpen uit Amsterdam
- If you could pick a language you could learn automatically without having to work for it, which languages would you choose: Lithuanian first of all, because I really want to speak that well (and I’m slightly worried I won’t be very good or be awkward when I try to speak), but also Latin, because that would be useful for my graduate studies, and French, because although I don’t have a major interest in studying it intensely like I do some other languages, it’s a really good language to have a good grasp on
- Have you ever seen a whole movie in a language you don’t understand: Several! Earlier this year in one of my classes we watched A Jester’s Tale (which is in Czech), and one of my favorite movies, Bread and Tulips, is in Italian. I’ve also watched Colonel Redl, which is in German, though that might not count because I do understand it somewhat. Oh, and the Hetalia film Paint it, White! in Japanese :D
- A language you like, but wouldn’t put the effort into learning: Greek, Spanish, and French. All really interesting and useful languages, but they’re pretty low on my language-priority list
- Write a short introduction of yourself in a language other than English:
Hallo! Ich heisse Mentha. Ich bin zwanzig Jahre alt, und ich komme aus dem USA. (that’s probably as much as I feel comfortable with. Sorry!)
