Awesome Shit by Starry-Heaven

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
  • Mood: Rant

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.

Oh honey please - there's always too much of [insert fandom/fans] on dA. :unimpressed:
