gramarye1971: Canada from Hetalia in RCMP uniform (Hetalia: The True North)
[personal profile] gramarye1971
New community member here! I recently bought a copy of the Seifukubu manga -- the special edition with the post-canon chapter -- and have been rolling around in its goodness for the past few days. The art style is wonderful and expressive in ways you don't often see with tie-in media, and the whiplash contrast between the random ridiculousness (the banana peel plot! beribboned Zundar!) and the heart-rending revelations (oh poor darlings they're all so quietly broken inside) is everything I could have hoped for out of it. It's given me some potential fic ideas, though considering my low fannish output lately I think I might jinx myself if I start discussing them too freely. Regardless, I've been delighted by how much this series hits all of my trope buttons, and I'm looking forward to season 2.

That said, I'm trying to decide whether I want to buy the novelization, but unless it provides more background/personal information on the Battle Lovers themselves I'm not sure that I really have a burning need to import it. Does anyone who owns the novel want to weigh in on this?
