gramarye1971: Canada from Hetalia in RCMP uniform (Hetalia: The True North)

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?

Intra-fiducia has translated it here, so you can check it out and decide for yourself:

I thought it was pretty cute, personally - it's basically a standard adventure, but it focuses a little bit more on the Battle Lovers' relationships than usual, and it does provide a little more information on Io, Ryuu, and Yumoto's home lives. For what it's worth, I bought a copy! (I was expecting more furigana, though... Oops.)

Oh please please share your thoughts and fanworks with us! It's people like you that make our fandom wonderful. <3 Thank you so much for posting here and I hope you have a great time!

Someone mentioned the positives of the novel, but might I also suggest checking on the Mini Collection game translations also provided by Intra-Fiducia/karahashi (DW)? They provide a wealth of information and insight on character relationships. ^.^ Oh, just so you know, we are getting a second Boueibu Novel that should probably give us even more on the Defense club! ^^

I have to admit, for supplementary material, the manga provided a lot of surprising insight for the Seifukubu that they couldn't squeeze in season 1 but is still very important to their profiles (in particular Arima and Akoya) and I hope it gets expanded on in season 2. My beautiful broken babies. ;---;
