Way too many Hetalia fans on DA. I typed in 'Ludwig' in the DA search thing, and everything that came up was Hetalia. Don't get me wrong, I love that webcomic/manga/show but still, it's not the only thing in the world. In order to see the acuall (too lazy to spell check) drumset, you have to add 'drums' and not even 150 devientations show up. Hetalia is not the only thing in the world peoples. If you type in 'Ludwig Hetalia' over 21,000 devintations show up. I love hetalia, but I do think that it IS a "bit" overrated. There are other things. Like Futurama (TV, Comic Book), the Big Bang Theory (TV), Soul Eater (TV, Manga), Garfield (comis strip), Star Trek (TV, Movie, Comic, Novel, too many to list) Doctor Who & it's spinn offs (TV, Comic books, Novels) just to name a few. Like I said, Hetalia is NOT the only thing in the world. I'm problobly going to get a lot of shit for this but I don't care


EDIT: I've decided to go the rest of this week without drawing Hetalia. It would accually be a over week because I didn't draw any Hetalia scince at least last week. So expect more TLK, Futurama, maybe some Star Trek and Family Guy from me. :D

That's interesting. I love Hetalia too, but I kind of get what you're saying. I'm not annoyed or whatever but yeah. I think that the top things people usually draw in anime are Hetalia, Ouran Highschool Host Club, Fruits Basket and more because they're the most popular. Many people want to be seen on deviantart, well, watched or something like that they do things about the more popular animes. Or else it's that they are influenced by friends or they legit are huge, mega fans of them. B-)

Why does it matter? It's popular, people draw it :shrug: That doesn't mean they don't enjoy other things.

It's not anyone's fault, what's popular will stay that way and you can't force people to change their interests if you don't like how it is. If you can't change something, then change your attitude.

what popular is popular....but you do have a point...I mean I typed "Germany" in the search bar and got Ludwig when I was searching for artwork on the country, which was kinda disappointing.....:|

There is a lot of Hetalia out there but saying that: "oh, Hetalia is not the only thing in the world~" looks weird... don't
get me wrong, I don't waste that much time on Hetalia but amount of 'Hetalia' stuff has nothing to do with the time that people
spend on Hetalia but the amount... and people won't really stop watching it just because someone writes that it's overrated.
(so the amount of Hetalia won't change as long as the fans won't stop faving it).

I don't even know why I'm obsessed with Hetalia... I think it's just because the characters are really fun to draw :) Also, it sorta helped me with History. Not like, C+ to A++++, but it helped me memorize a couple things ;) I should probably start drawing other stuff.. -digs out old sketches-

I used to be a soul eater fan. But my problem with fandom (and this is as far as I know only MY problem - I've never heard of others with this) is that I cannot stick to more than a couple fandoms at a time. So, Soul Eater got pushed aside (the dub did NOT help!)

But, as for this? I'm sorry, dA is not the place to go for drum sets. I wouldn't look up Pearl drums on here, I'd go elsewhere. And even on the off chance I did want to look them up here, I would of course specify that I want the drums, because of how many different things can fall under one name. I've googled "Loki" to find not only the Marvel character, but various historical pieces, a computer fan, and various other things using the name.
And that's Google. dA is practically fanart central . . . There's other art, sure, but it IS predominately fanart. Why? can you think of another place for the fanartists to go that has nearly as big a name as dA?

Hidekaz created a good series, but (in my opinion) a good part of fans are made by yaoi retarded fangirls that just love history because of Hetalia. It's a good serie, I like, I'm a yaoi fangirl and I like history, but before this series! I found a serie made by a member of deviantART and I think it's BETTER than hetalia, cause the characters are not so retarded and not so happy with cute faces: Scandinavia and the World, made by :iconhumon:.

I'm glade we have other series, but I'm full of retarded fans _ _" - in special about the new 2P characters.

Hey, it's a popular anime. And popular animes will be popular on websites that have a large percentage of anime fans. Hetalia fanart is going to get clicked on, favorited, added to groups, et cetera. Nothing much you can do about it, it's just how the website's built.

We are all aware other things are out there, I am in many groups for other things, but honestly we enjoy it so why do care? Obviously there are many other things, plus you are putting this in a group about hetalia which means you are looking for people to yell at you. It just seems antagonizing.

I'm not looking for people to yell at me. I just needed to get this out, and I can't find away to dissallow comments on a single journal entry without dissalowing comments for all journal entries. Plus the ONLY group I put it in was a group for the SANE fans. (No, I am not calling you insane, I'm just saying :shrug:)

I understand, and I don't consider myself an insane fan, I have felt like that before when there are really over done fandoms on DA I just think it seems silly to post it in a group for the series you are saying is over done since I'm pretty sure we are mostly fans of the series and thus enjoy the amount of art.
But obviously we are both entitled to our opinions on the matter, I don't mean to sound like I'm attacking, which I can hear myself sounding like I am. So sorry about that! I do sometimes wish that there was more recognition for other fandoms, but I think the best way to deal with that is just making groups and finding like minded fans to find the good art out there.

I couldn't agree more. A few months ago when I was totally crazy with Hetalia (not in the "Attack the Anti-UsUk and FrUk fans" but more along the lines of being obsessed with it in general). But yeah, this is crazy. I've heard the drumset is worth a lot though. I remember seeing it on Pawn Stars or something like that...

Honestly I used to be an insane Green Day fan (one of the most insane fanbases, reached peak of insanity when Billie Joe came to AI on broadway) but my insanaty quickly died down (even thought I it like what, 7 times :XD:). I can't say for other fans though. The insane part of the fanbase is mainly on FB. (Like Hetalia, I still love Green Day but, obviously neither one of them are the only things int the world.)

I'm no longer all "gung-ho" about it anymore, but I still love the series. I like to write and draw stuff about it, but I don't let it take over my life. I'd die happy if the obsessive Hetalia fans would become more relaxed.

Hetalia's a popular fandom, yes, and we can all point to times when someone's gone overboard with it, but it's REALLY stretching it to imply that people like JUST Hetalia and nothing else. There are a lot of different fandoms that I'm sure are just as - if not more - popular as Hetalia here on deviantART, and I also think that there are a lot of Hetalia fans who like other things as well.

No, Hetalia is not the only thing in the world - but it is the rare fan who actually thinks it is, I find.

I was simply challenging your rather steep assumption. I'm pretty sure quite a few people draw him... er, like, take a look at all the portraits and busts of the guy.

Well, yes, on a website with a large weeaboo population, people are more likely going to draw an anime character instead of a famous composer.

But there are more important Ludwigs than the fictional personification of Germany.

True enough. Although I personally can't say I get into many other fandoms that much simply because they aren't as interesting. I mean, you read one Avatar fanfiction you've read them all. Sometimes I read Twilight fanfiction for the lulz...

I think it's so popular because it's almost not even a fandom. It's more like a bunch of people got together and decided to like certain things in a similar fashion. Like half of us stopped watching the anime.

I mean, Hetalia's popular, but I can't say it's the fault of people who like it, really. I mean, Harry Potter's popular but no one's like 'guys come on, TV still exists'.

I think the real problem is that it's grown to that awkward adolescent stage where the sheer size of its growth spurts is making it uncoordinated and gangly. Everyone's still like GUYS GUYS HETALIA GUYS LOOK. It'll die down eventually and settle into a respectable fandom.

Wait, what's wrong with lots of Hetalia fans on dA? Weeaboos are one thing, but simply lots of people enjoying the show on dA is another.
I agree it's a tad overrated, but an insane fanbase doesn't have all that much to do with how many deviations come up for 'Ludwig'.
:shrug: People just like Germany, I guess. I love other animes, but Hetalia is my favorite.

Uh... isn't that kind of your own fault? Of course you're going to hear Hetalia this and Hetalia that if you're in a lot of Hetalia groups. :|
I understand your annoyance if you search up something like "Ludwig" and only get Hetalia, but...
You're pretty much only going to see Hetalia in groups + occasionally on the featured page.
I think you're overreacting just a bit.
