Hetalia - English Study

A study of the English elements of the Anime/Manga Hetalia. I did not concentrate as i was having fun reading it, to take my time studying the language. Therefore, finding this project entirely meaningless. (got an A+ so happy!)

MIGHT I POINT OUT!
HOT BODY = Hot Country Weather
POINT IS!
Inanimate Countries
Humans
Stereotypically symbolised
VERY
MY THEORY...
ALLEGORY
"A special type of metaphor which involves a presented narrative. Frequently the personifications represent virtues and vices, and a journey is used in the poem (TEXT) to provide a narrative thread."
This is what Hetalia is.
Personified countries telling stories when the actual land countries couldn't.
METAPHORS AND SIMILES
Ignoring the already explained extension metaphor, personification.
These poetic devices come from within the text
METAPHORS WITHIN THE MANGA INCLUDE
"I'm a tomato crate fairy!"
- said by Italy
- Entirely unrealistic!
- BUT! A metaphor is describing something AS something else
"I'm the hero!"
- said by America
- Love of superheroes.
- He is TOTALLY and all mighty being which OBVIOUSLY means he is the hero... =_=
=_=
Yay...! =_=
CONNOTATIONS WITHIN METAPHORS AND SIMILES
"Your anger is Chopin."
- said by Germany
CHOPIN = confusing emotions = anger
Compare with
"Love is a red rose"
- very similar
- both discribe emotions
SiIMILES WITHIN THE TEXT
"It's like having a nagging wife!"
- said by Germany
'IT' = Austria = behaviour like that of 'nagging wife'
COMPARING TO:
"I look at the young 'uns like America-kun!"
- said by Japan
States that America is young,
where as Japan is not.
BOTH SIMILES RELATE TO A PERSON
IRONY
America says "I'll never go outside again!"

But then then the light breaks, forcing him to go outside.
AUDIENCE APPEAL
FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE
SAYINGS/FIGURES OF SPEECH
"In for the long drive = level of difficulty
"How do you like them apples?!" = expresses triumph
"...sit down and talk like respectable human beings."
Simile?
Describing human as a human
=
Figure of speech
How does it relate?
How the language is used (metaphors, similes, figures of speech)
VERY ENGAGING =

- colloquial speech
- like listening to a friend
VERY IMPORTANT
understanding
COMPARING

- modern day language
- good looking narrators
- more amusing
- more appealing imagery
- monotone voice
- middle aged (men) narrators
- BORING
POWER
Imagery + Modern day language
