This is the manga where various countries are anthropomorphized.
Hungary and Liechtenstein are the only girls. Yeah, I don’t know. The author’s notes are like this:
This is a matter of no importance, but I like to make England speak using typical Tsundere words. “Don’t misunderstand! The pound is high for my sake!”
It is basically deeply inappropriate in every way. In what I’ve read, the only Muslim country to show up is Turkey, who is coincidentally also the only non-cute country. Bah. Egypt was there for like one panel at one point, and neither the rest of Africa nor South America have appeared yet. You’d think
she he (!) could at least work Brazil in there…
It's only a week late!

This isn't NaNoWriMo; it's part of an attempt to address my fundamental productivity problem, that being that that I can never work on just one project at once. Until recently, I've been trying to force myself away from that. But what'll happen is that I'll have this really great idea for Steampunk London-and-Paris Amnesiac Spy Adventure Game, but I'll have designated my Active Project as Shounen Jump-Style Demon Hunters Who Quote Poetry Serial Novel, and I'll guiltily try to force myself to work on that and end up getting nothing done. I suspect that my brain may just not be amenable to this sort of focus for anything that's not for a class or work.
So what I'm trying to do right now is just make myself sit down and write as much as I can on whatever thing I'm obsessing about at the moment, rather than trying to guilt myself into working on something I'm not feeling at the moment. So yesterday morning I wrote a page of Steampunk Gay Meiji-Era Civil Servants Novel and a page of the Shounen Jump thing, last night I wrote twelve pages of the The Chosen One Has Been Cloned Medievaloid Fantasy YA Novel, and today I did an edit of this, and will probably work on something else later.
