I'm not geeky about it, but I do enjoy the medium I love the archetypal storytelling power I so often run into, like in Hetalia which is just the perfect confluence of history, politics, and funny!
The moment you see your home guy/gal and recognize those characteristics in yourself, it`s priceless. And you come to love all the countries that way, despite their (many) foibles.

Antagnonizer, it's a Hetalia reference. Nobody can remember who Canada is, not even his own pet polar bear who has to be constantly reminded.
There`s an episode where Russia spends an entire meeting sitting on Canada in his chair, who can only meekly cry "Maple" in protest, and Russia leaves the meeting commenting on how comfortable his seat was this time.
Canada is just so quiet, modest and well behaved people tend to overlook the poor guy! XD

@QueenZira "Oh and the very next thing we said after meeting Canada for the first time was, "Who are you again?"
I'm not sure that you should really be proud of that.
I`ve always looked at Canada as the passive aggressive stoner, and the US as the belligerent drunk. If they went to a bar together, the US would be out front picking fights, and Canada would be running around apologizing to everyone. BFF`s I`d say.
