Good afternoon,

Believe it or not, this is not a drill, but THE PILOT EPISODE IS DOOOONNNNEEEEEEE

If you notice anything wrong with it - ok. You can let me know. We'll apply it to future episodes. But this is the final version of the pilot episode.

Enjoy!

HOORAY HOORAY! IT'S LATE FOR CANADA DAAAAAAAAAAAY!

But I must watch! It's Saturday night, so why not? :)

(20 MINUTES LATER)

So excited for the next episode! Wait, I think I predicted the ending of the video in one of my drawings from earlier this year, where Canada is trying to take a photo of his kids, but it all goes horribly wrong.

The intention was never to release it for Canada Day and the episode in itself has nothing to do with Canada Day.

But enjoy the ep!

I love the bit with Nova Scotia, where he's cooking something and Canada tells him "Don't burn it! We only have one kitchen!" LOL.

I wonder how the next episode will go, now that we've been (re-)introduced to Canada and his kids?

RAAAAAAAHHHHH!!! The video looks and sounds amazing! Good job to everyone who worked on it.

The only minor issue I could see in it was that the video sometimes becomes blurred; for instance, between 10:20 and 10:45. Other than that, everything was great.

Three things, though:

1. Why does the art style keep changing throughout the video?
2. Why does Canada say "A-nie", not "Annie"?
3. Why do you use their real names instead of the province/territory names?

I don't know how well I'm prepared to answer questions, but I think I might have an idea? The first one I know for sure, at least.
1. There are a multitude of illustrators working on the project. Different scenes were chosen by different artists, rather than designating one artist to do a 19-minute episode by themself. So the art style will fluctuate, because not all the different artists are the same.
2. It probably just has to do with a personal choice from the VA to pronounce it that way. Every word can be pronounced a lot of different ways.
3. I think that choice may be just to make the characters feel more human. To make it feel like they have close enough relationships for that sort of casual interaction. But I wouldn't know for sure.

In other news, I love the episode! Other than the blurring issues and some grammar issues in subtitling, it's awesome! I'm glad to see this finally out. =)

1. yeah thats it. It's the same way the IAMP did it. Asking one person to do the whole thing would be ridic.
2. It might also just be because our Canada VAs first language is not English and you might just be hearing a bit of her accent
3. Yeah it's something that we've talked about a bit and it's a preference thing. I don't mind human names being used for the first ep to introduce everyone, but as a personal preference I like using geographical names for audiences who are less familiar with Hetalia and using human names to demonstrate intimacy.

@ Hapo - So you won't hear Canada say "Nova Scotia", you'll just hear him say "Joel" instead? But doesn't that kind of defeat the purpose of the project - to personify the provinces and territories?

No, that's not what I'm saying. I'm saying it's a personal choice of the script writers. I prefer people to use the province and territory names most of the time myself for educational reasons- it just makes it easier for people who aren't familiar with the project. However, I'm willing to let a couple human names slip to show intimacy between two characters depending on the situation.

That was a nice idea for a first episode :D I liked it
I thought about something, P.E.I name is "Annie" and she kinda looks like Anne-Shirley, that also lives in P.E.I
I meen come on tell me Annie is kinda inspired by Anne-Shirley
(or I'll look like a fool)

@ Anfel - Yes, PEI is designed after Anne of Green Gables. Hapo often makes this joke about how AOGG forms like 900% of PEI's economy... and potatoes. But that's because she's from Alberta and so doesn't know much about the Maritime provinces.

@ Anfel - You're from Quebec and don't know anything about the Maritime provinces? But they're right beside you... :S

The education program for history classes in Québec barely include any other province than Québec and Ontario. The program is, from elementary through highschool, mainly centered around Québec and it's history rather than Canadian history. The most prominent subject in these classes are the natives, the French and New France, and a little bit abour the English domination.

The program is barely talking about the World Wars and the Confederation. Hell, when I was in high school, we never talked about WWI and didn't even mention the Cold War. We spent a great total of 75 minutes talking about WWII and 5 minutes on the Confederation.

The only thing I remember being thaught about the maritimes was the Acadian deportation and a bit of Newfoundland's history because France and England were fighting over it.

I think you'll agree that with a program as self-centered as this, it is normal for someone to know nothing about the maritimes provinces even if they are right next to them.

As another fellow Quebecker, I will just add that it also depends of the schools you go to. (Private vs. Public). History in the public school curriculum is very self centered on what happened to the province of Quebec from before colonisation to modern times.

In the private schools, you'll get pre-history, European history, the World Wars, modern history, etc, with of course, one year dedicated to the history of Québec and Canada. (Hint: it's all about Québec with a few moments of "meanwhile the rest of Canada was against this idea" or such)

Therefore, yes, it's very normal for many Quebecker to have 0 clue about the history of their neighbouring provinces.

We never said our education system was perfect.
Sincerely, a high school teacher.

We don't even get local history here, unless you take it in uni. All Canadian history focuses on Upper and Lower Canada in grade school, which is very alienating for kids to learn about since it has very little to do with their own backyards. Some of us have a lot of difficulty learning about our own provinces, let alone our neighbours.

and travelling? canada is huge and really expensive to get from place to place. @_@ I've been to 6 provinces out of ten and one territory- and most of those i just drove through to stop on the way somewhere else. Quite a few people I know have only just left their small town, let alone the province or even the country. The first people from New Brunswick I met was maybe six years ago... when I was on vacation in Arizona! and this year? I JUST met someone from NWT for the first time, and that's the territory right above me!

the other fact is a lot of canadian politics is dependent on keeping regions antagonistic and uninterested in each other :/

The school curriculum in Quebec only focuses on Ontario and Quebec in detail? Well that's... province-ist.
