hetalia fans: I'm Tears this Promote some Peec and Lov y cant we all be happy Fuck (crying on the floor) I Am History . Historty Is More Gooder Than Warr
though it would be also good to consult history books and whatnot at times
SENSEI NOTICE ME I KNOW THE ANSWER
what if our next lesson in history is actually the next episode we're going to watch?
I once asked my friends 'who were the allies during WW2?' and they didn't know. I never even expected to know but it's so easy to learn with Hetalia. So back of, BROTHER!!! Lemme enjoy my anime!
Ok then before I watched Hetalia I never knew:
-Where Prussia was
-Anything about the cold war
-Anything about the opium wars
-Anything about the Holy Roman Empire
-Didn't know much about Soviet Russia
-Didn't know any Nordic history
Now I could keep up in a conversation with my history geek friends on most war related topics.
Yes some part are inaccurate but it is a comedy with history elements so it is not all going to be about sad shit and death!
And rant over XD
(I stopped doing history in year 8 so I learnt jack shit in school)
Yeah, I didn't know what Prussia was either, and had minimal knowledge on the Opium Wars and the Holy Roman Empire too.
And exactly, comedy shouldn't be taken so seriously anyway! xD
Its like criticising Monty Python or Black Adder for "not being realistic" XD
And the other 50 hetalia I know it might not be the best. But it works for me, at least now
I don't exactly think Hetalia teaches history, but it does help you getting interested in it.
I used to like history even before Hetalia, but it definitely made me like it more.
I'm a huge history nerd, and while I might not be into it myself, I appreciate that it gets people talking about history and other culture.
I agree.I mean,sure Hetalia isn't a history book that teaches everything 100%,but there are some elements I leant from it.
Prussia and it's empire.
That Hungry and Austria used to form Austria-Hungary.
And so on and so forth.
And when I was taking history just last year,I had a better time remembering certain things because of Hetalia.I guess you can say,Hetalia sort of inspired me to like history more~And I'm sure people are going to read this and think I'm an idiot for it,but people get inspired by the weirdest things.You wouldn't believe how any people tell me how MLPFiM helped with their depression or inspired them to be musicians.And if a little girl's cartoon can inspire people,than so can an anime about country personifications!
Actually no.In America,depending on what state you're in depends on what history you learn.I lived in California and Texas,so I was only taught about the Gold Rush,The Alamo,Civil Wars,the South,and they refrain from talking about any other state then their own.Same for the news channel.So learning that there was an actual Micronation somewhere in America baffled me.
