It's because it's so stereotypical, they don't want young kids watching it and getting in their heads that the Italians are weak, au that the Swedish are socially awkward, au that Russians are scary. The sexual content is pretty bad, but I wouldn't say it's much worse than Baka and Test, that being rated Tv-14. In fact, I could say that Baka and Test is worse even, and Soul Eater has pretty high sexual content too. The swearing could be a problem too, but I watch it on Netflix, and f*ck is censored in Axis Powers and World Series, though not in Paint it, White. The violence definitely is not a problem, I mean, compare it to Fullmetal Alchemist:Brotherhood, as much as I upendo that anime, it has quite the portion of blood.
I apologize for grammar au spelling mistakes. English is not my native.
No offense au anything but your rating system is way too strict your MA is the equivalent to our R18+ in Australia Hetalia is rated M meaning any one can watch it but it's reccomended to ' mature' audiences 15+ so if it was rated MA15+ I think that rating is fine. But in your case it should be lowered to 15+ what ever your equivalent of that is.
ma meaning 18+ right? i have no fucking idea why it has that rating to begin with...thats the rating wewe give on something with a highamout of sexual content and language. people have some issues with WAY overdoing it with the ratings on things... (not just Hetalia but in general for some reason when people put ratings on manga and anime they just really overdo it and i dont understand why...).
it doesnt make sense that it would have that rating sense the only thing there is cursing... wouldnt that give it a like 13+ rating au something like that? really confuses me...
Wow it's rated TV MA?..I didn't think it would have been that high I thought it would have been maybe thirteen/fourteen and up like I alisema it does seem a big high but ratings are there for a reason..it wouldn't hurt to change it but that's up to the raters au whomever rates the shows.
I know MA seems too much, but I agree whole heartedly it should stay. Reason is the fans. The anime should not be for 13above. au below.
Reason is, many people who are not mature take this anime so so so seriously. Many incidents have happened in which the Hetalia fandom now has a bad name.
Examples are that mashabiki online actually make racist slurs and mashabiki *coughweeabooscough* at conventions get so crazy that theyy forcefully make other cosplayers do things they don't want to. Hitler signs at holocaust museums in cosplay. (Please keep in mind that most of their uniforms are real army uniforms)
Also, at a Ask a Nation panel, a young man asked China, "How do wewe feel about the low paying, horrible jobs America gives your people?" Everyone was silent. Then my friend picked someone else for questions.
but Hetalia isnt MA, my DVD's say that its just M....but if it is MA i wouldnt be surprised i mean, it does have france in it xD that and the amount of stereotypes in it to and people could get easily offended kwa it
I think it should be lowered. It's the jokes they use that make it MA, but I think Older Teen would fit better. If I were working the ratings, I would make it OT. It wasn't like there was anything that made it MA other than a little swearing and a few adult themes... but I've seen other things that are like that. For example, Baka to Test has very blatant perverted things in it and it's rated TV-14 I think.
I think it definitely should. Many kids watch it even though It MA (im one of them) though Hetalia says a curse now and then they bleep it out. I mean come on kids these days watch shows a LOT worse than hetalia.
I understand why they'd give it the MA. Slurs, strong language, and the who kazoo of sexual themes. But still I don't understand that high; Family Guy is worse than this onyesha an yet it gets a Pg-13 rating. Little kids don't need to be watching crap like this anyway; it'll mess with their minds. So yeah OT au Pg-14 would probably be best.
I don't know about this but please don't put hate maoni on me cause I really don't know... it depends on the audiences in many countries. Like South Korea, however, got offended on Hetalia because the way how South Korea acted in the Hetalia and now there's no South Korea appearing in Hetalia but only in the ending. It could offended some people through stereotypes au slightly racism(personification) and it implied gayness. From what I've seen in Hetalia, it shown France naked, from the one episode, but wewe don't see anything but his butt and alot of cursing. But Hetalia is tame with no sexual intereraction.
Of course it should! Yes, there may be some crude language, but I see that commonly in most other anime. Also, yes, it does have sexual references, but not to the point of where I would turn it off due to disgust. All episodes that onyesha sexual stuff often have something to censor it, so it isn't really a big deal.
I'm a Christian and honestly, the bible has things worse then Hetalia in it; gore especially.
As far as I know,mother rating should be lowered. Of course there is some suggestive material and innuendoes (such as certain characters and on-point interactions) but that's part of the fun of the show! Plus, it is (somewhat) about the wars around the world so there will be a tad bit of violence coming from there, but it's mostly drama when it comes to that. I'd say make it a rating like PG-13 au so. Teenage audiences should be able to handle it perfectly fine without aid and enjoy the onyesha for its dirty humor, as well as adults.
Well, the content in Hetalia also consists of: really racist jokes swearing sexual content at times it seems to me that it should be 15+, but in a way Hidekaz had it right for it to be 18+. they don't want kids watching it and getting offended, learning to cuss, saying racist jokes, etc., its to keep from other countries being offended. remember south korea?
