[discussion] Hetalia Movie Poster  
A theory about the maid on the official Hetalia movie poster from the official Gentosha Comics website.

Updated on January 16, 2010. The Hetalia Wikia hoax will be unrelated to this theory as of now.

冬コミ期間中に実施して大好評のヘタリア駅貼りの様子を特別レポ!!


Then click on the bottom middle picture, and you'll see a maid standing next to Latvia at the end.



Your thoughts?

That maid on this movie poster looks like that maid in episode 1 of Axis Powers Hetalia anime, retaining the hairstyle and outfit. The maid (from the episode 1) kind of looks European, but Philippines is a part of Latin Union, so possibly Himaruya-san drew her that way.

But her eye color is too small to see, so we'll have to wait til the movie comes out on summer of Japan (around June to August) but it's proven that the poster!maid's hair color is black. You know how Himaruya-san likes to change things a bit.


Episode 1 of Hetalia anime

What do you think?

Does it confirm the validity of Hetalia Wiki's recent updates?

Or do you disagree that the maid is Phils-tan?


Speak out!

The Asia3 x Maid Theory


Courtesy of kurohou. According to her, it came from a japanese article about APH before the anime was aired officially.

Now, try comparing this asia3.jpg with the maid picture above. The hairstyle does look similar, isn't it? Even the small strand of hair is sticking out on the forehead.

Apparently, I think this sketch was probably an old version of how Himaruya-san originally planned Philippines to be.


UPDATED NUMBER 2:
January 16, 2010

Once again, kurohou found another great find.
A clearer resolution of the characters from the movie poster.
The maid is at the end next to Korea. (and taller than him lolwut)
Some characters looked badly proportioned. xD


UPDATED NUMBER 3:

The Maid!Philippines Theory.

The maid is possibly an Asian nation, for her hairstyle looks noticeably similar to that asia3 sketch. That points out that the maid is possibly not a Latin American country.

I understand about the maid issue, but I think it's a honorable job. Maids watch after the house, valuables, and etc. while the master is not here. The maids also do important housekeeping duties. They are there when we need them, especially those people who are not used to chores. -laughs- Maybe it's why some other countries acknowledge us as maids. Nurses and caretakers are also valuable in the society-- they look after the sick. If there are no maids in the world, how are we going to survive? In a sense, maids are our heroines at home.

As for the maid's appearance-- green eyes and light skin. Green eyes aren't a big deal, for other characters have unrealistic color codes. One primary example is Iceland having silver-gray hair and lavender eyes. Others include Russia with lavender eyes and Austria with violet eyes. Meanwhile, Spanish people in reality have brown eyes--- but Spain has green eyes!

Originally, Romano's eye color was supposed to be green, but now brown in the anime. As for South Korea, his hair color was originally going to be black, but suddenly changed to chestnut brown in the anime. Now you know why Himaruya-san loves to mess with the colors. 

Philippines, as I will point out, is listed as one of the three Latin Asian countries(along with Macau and East Timor) and also a part of Latin Union.

Also, she has green eyes because she was "adopted" by Spain, according to someone. As we speak, Canada inherited wavy hair from France, and both HK and Australia have inherited those eyebrows from UK. So it's likely, that Philippines, being colonized for more than 300 years, will have inherited green eyes from Spain.

About her height, I'm thinking it's because it's a glitch. (Look, other characters are badly proportioned.) But Eurasians are known to be really tall. Philippines, an Asian country, being colonized by Spain and England once, might have inherited that way.

So, dear Filipinos, don't be offended. Because of the South Korea incident, it left a huge impact on Himaruya-san. If one of you starts to protest against the anime because of a certain maid, it will deal another blow to Himaruya. :( I know he's not trying to make fun of our Motherland, Philippines.

I would like to point out that everything said here is a theory.  Whether the maid is Philippines or not, the fate of the maid rest upon in the hands of Himaruya-san. We'll know when the Hetalia movie appears on around June-August 2010.

It's kind of hurtful that she is a maid, but right now, I'm really happy she's a girl. XDDD

They're all countries there, so that means that maid-tan is a country too, right? XDDDD

WHEE PHILS-TAN.

wanna join in a discussion too..

I disagree that she is Phili-tan because

1) she has green eyes
2) she's way too tall!!! she's almost as tall as Ivan, look!!!
3) Wikia could be edited by anyone, unless he put it in a note somewhere there or in the references, I'd believe it...she must be some European country or something...don't know...
Coconienia on January 15th, 2010 12:57 pm (UTC)
1) But the maid on the movie poster is small to see, so her eyes could be entirely something else.
2) The maid is as tall as Belgium too. :D
3) True about Wikia, we'll have to wait for the validity.

It's possible that she's supposed to stand for someone else too. But yeah, I'm seriously hoping that that is PH-tan, because I really want a female PH-tan.

Still, I will wait for Himaruya-sensei's say in all this. Haha, I really have no life. OTL

I can't hide that it's pretty hurtful, but sadly, that's what other nationalities regard Filipinos as...

BUT, like I said before... HARD TIME BELIEVING IT... she looks too European and OMG in the poster she's as tall as Russia... HOW CAN THAT HAPPEN!? O.o I wish I was that tall a pinay too... =w=

Well, we'll just have to see. I don't think Hetalia is going away anytime soon.
Coconienia on January 15th, 2010 01:19 pm (UTC)
Yes, true, it's sad. D:

Philippines is a part of Latin Union, and also, Eurasians are known to be really tall! Besides, Belgium is as tall as the maid.

Yes. ;__; When the movie comes out on around June-August!

I disagree as well. :/

Maid!Philippines is ... not cool (at least, for me.). And Philippines will never be that fair-skinned. :/ It would be more believable if she's kayumanggi and all.
bente_unerz36bente_unerz36 on January 15th, 2010 01:18 pm (UTC)
bahaha! I knew it! it's a cameo! :DDD

ah well, I'm not.. sad at all X.x it's okay for me if she's maid or something.. think about Hungary? or Chibitalia? ^^;

but I agree about the height thing... she's WAY tall.. ^^; and it could be europe-tan... again =__= but hopefully not. who knows? that might be asia3 we were talking about..? ah well ^^;

there is a big possibility that it could be Philippines, since she was serving tea to Spain. And since she has been occupied for like.. 333years. it could be Mexico too. but... ah!! I still can't wait!! >w
nomnomnomepalpie on January 15th, 2010 01:19 pm (UTC)
Freaky- She's TALL.

But if she appeared in episode 1- and episode 1 only, and is on the movie poster...

Does that mean that she's going to appear in the movie?
Coconienia on January 15th, 2010 01:24 pm (UTC)
Yes, Eurasians are like that. o_o

I think so, since she appeared on the movie poster, it's very likely she's going to play a significant role in the movie.
bente_unerz36bente_unerz36 on January 15th, 2010 01:57 pm (UTC)
lol, if you guys look at the screenshot closely, her skin is a bit (BIT) darker than Spain.. I took the color out from gimp, and it was darker ^^; but yeah... her skin is too light.. ^^;
Coconienia on January 15th, 2010 02:01 pm (UTC)
Which screenshot, hetalia movie poster or the episode 1 screencap?

Since it's only episode 1, it's likely changes are to occur through time.

On the movie poster, it appears that the maid has black hair now, and noticeably darker skin. : O

Hmmm, that is very suspicious of them to keep the maid there even after her brief airtime at Episode 1. I wouldn't keep my hopes up, but it would be nice to think Piri could have been made a girl.

But, those eyes.. They're green, ah whatthehey~ XP

Wait, if her role there's to be a maid ...then she isn't part of the UN? ._.;
Or is it just "I want to help ~ 8DDD" on her part? >>;
I DID read somewhere about Indonesia being thought of more of a maid country than the Philippines ... not sure where though D;

But on another note, I'm not really offended. I mean, come on, it's a stereotype; it's MEANT to make fun of stuff, albeit a bit insulting, but meh -shrug-

Isipin mo nga si Hungary, at mas lalo na kay Chibitalia! mga maids cla, pero hindi nman na-offended yun mga tao sa Hungary! And I don't want people to think that filipinos are O.A. just about that.

but yeah, we're still not sure of it yet. it could be Mexico, but she's not that popular as maid. ^^; bah! We just wanna know who that maid really is! D:

TBH I still don't think that she's PH-tan. Unless Himaruya says so in his blog, I'm going to believe that she's not the Philippines.

To me, it doesn't make sense that if she were PH-tan that he wouldn't say so because he were afraid another incident like what happened with Korea would occur. Because he had no trouble portraying Lithuania as America's house help.

It took quite some time to scroll down and read all of these comments. Many have very valid points, but I'm going to agree with the group that says the maid probably is not the Philippines.

From the way she is drawn, she's either just an extra character who isn't representative of an actual nation or a Latin American country (possibly even Portugal, Basque, or other autonomous regions of Spain, etc.).

Oddly enough, the maid resembles my green-eyed, brown-haired, tall, and pale with a slight olive undertone Portuguese and Italian-American friend. To be clear, she is a crime scene investigation officer, not a maid.

While valid claims about the avoidance of officially labeling the maid as the Philippines are likely (similar to the Korea example), her physical phenotype doesn't seem to match up. How many green-eyed Filipinos do you meet? It's terribly rare, as the green and blue eye colors are recessive genes, and if anything, hazel or light brown will win out.

Besides, Wikia CAN be edited by anyone, which makes fandom information especially questionable. Wikipedia in general is "truth by consensus"...

As for the SD sketch, I'm more willing to believe that that is one of the SE Asian nations with Philippines amongst them. Still, I agree that until official word comes, I'll hesitate to believe that the Philippines is a canon character. Let's not get our hopes up so soon.

Although, frankly, I'm somewhat irritated that it's not already an official character considering the strategic position it was in during WW2. I mean, they have Sealand...

As a side note, here in California, the most stereotypical Filipino careers are nurses/caretakers, accountants, and US Postal Service workers. So much, that we have many in-jokes about them.

I'll end here before I begin a rant on stereotypes.
Coconienia on January 16th, 2010 02:56 am (UTC)
Yes, but Portugal is excluded, because in their history, she's Spain's rival so it's likely she wouldn't be serving him either. But for the other Latin America countries, it's possible. But which one is deemed to be fit as a maid?

If she was an extra character, how does that explain her on the movie poster with the other countries? And we're aware that Russia clearly has unrealistic color code-- lavender-colored eyes. Spanish people in reality have brown eyes, not green eyes. Iceland too, with his silver hair and lavender eyes. Then there's Austria, who has violet eyes.

Meanwhile, it's possible for countries to inherit something from their colonists. Examples are Canada inheriting wavy hair from France, both HK and Australia receiving such eyebrows from UK.

Also, Philippines being a part of Latin Union. xD

About the maid/nurse part, I believe they acknowledge Filipinos to be maids. Why not? Being a maid is honorable, looking after valuables and the house while the master is not here, doing duties, etc. If the world doesn't have maids, the children who don't like doing chores will have difficult times. (XD) Maids, in a sense, are our heroines. They are there when we need them. Nurses and caretakers are also valuable in the society. :D


Wikia will be unrelated to this maid theory as of now, seeing the hoax has gotten removed.

But yes, everything is a theory here. xD

w-what if she's Portugal?
o.o

honestly it kinda hurts that Himaruya would depict her as a maid...but then again, it could be because she was Spain's colony for more than 300 years, and not because of our current situation today.
also, it kinda crushed my idea of a Philippines-tan with brown skin and brown eyes...

gah. as you said in the poster the charas are not proportioned well..so I can disregard the height. But the skiiiiiin~!!
It would be more believable if she was at least tanned and had black hair. =/

eeehhhhh, and she's taller than Japan!! My OTP~!!TT-TT

but she's sooo pretty~!!*-*
I hope it's not Mexico. Because Mexico should be a guy!!!D:<

and about her height...if she's made to be that way [possibly because of Spain and England and US occupying her], then...that kinda dispels the Filipinos-are-short thing, which is kinda like a world-known fact. 8D
Though I'm something like 5'6 or even taller "OTL and PURE Filipino. So tall Firi-tan=why not?8]

overall...I'm inda unsure as to what to believe in. But I really hope Philippines-tan appears in the anime [or the manga or the movie!] SOON/
thanks for the post~!:3

I 40% doubt that she is But it doesn't mean I FULLY disagree with your theory. I mean, I like the theory you presented because it's somehow makes sense. Your Theory could be right about the maid works, Philippines in a Latin Union, and etc.
And about her height, I believe that she's as tall/short as Latvia if you put her down a bit.
Plus, the drawing of Asia3 has a debate in a certain web whether she's either Philippines, Vietnam or Indonesia. Her bangs are similar to the maid but the clothes are like Vietnam.(Could be mixed bread 8D <---random)

The maid and Asia 3
I disagree that The maid in Episode one and asia 3 is Philippine-tan

1) I know a friend of Mine who goes to the same University and the same classes as Himaruya-san.and He said He hasn't made Philippines yet the matter of fact.
2) Asia 3 is actually Vietnam with her various hairstyles and outfit also confirmed by the creator
3) The maid was Just an Ordinary Human that came along with spain she's a spanish maid.
In the story many non-country characters appeared in hetalia and the maid was one of them

first of all, that theory is amazing..
About the outfit of the girl that is rumored to be the Philippines, FOR ME it's not offensive because why would you think Mr. Hidekaz referred the outfit to stereotypes about the Filipinos being maid? that stereotype is NOT included in the history(specifically in times of wars and colonization)... so why would he possibly do that? I think (IF it is really the Philippines) it's just the way of Mr. Hidekaz of portraying the Philippines serving Spain during the time of Spain's control over the Philippines.
And about the height... I think it's just a glitch (oh look at Antonio's height!! he's so small LAWLZ) but yeah I have some spanish blood and I'm tall.. sad thing is? I'm always placed at the back.. :(
