I’m back from vacation, so now it’s time to work on catching up! I’ve been busy with a few real life issues, but I should be able to get World Stars updated this week. I’ve currently got up Chapters 293-295, so check those out if you haven’t seen them yet on tumblr. That’s about all I have to announce currently. I’ll post again when I get the next few chapters up.
Updates first! World Stars Chapter 291 and Chapter 292 have been added to the site!
Also, I didn’t mention it previously, but I’m working on adding info from the Annotated Hetalia tumblr to their corresponding strips, so there’ll be some factual info readers can check out while going through the comics. I’ve just been going through the ones for World Stars now, and there’s a lot to do, but here’s a list of what chapters have had annotations added so far. You’ll find the info at the bottom of the pages.
- Chapter 1: The World-Centric Comedy about Nation Personifications is our Shocking New Serialisation!
- Chapter 29: Pigs at the End of the Year…!?
- Chapter 51: Mission Impossible: Gifting the Russian Way
- Chapter 53: What’s Going On Behind Those Smiles…?!
- Chapter 58: Viva the Industrial Revolution!
- Chapter 194: I Do Things My Way…!
- Chapter 261: King of I-Want-To-Hug-This-Fluffball…
- Chapter 264: Even America’s Completely Smitten…
- Chapter 267: Nothing Good Will Come of This…

I believe that’s everything currently.
As far as news, I just wanted to mention that starting tomorrow I’m going to be going off on vacation for a couple weeks, so I’m not sure if/when I’ll be able to update. I’m hoping I can at least keep up with World Stars, but we’ll see. That’s all!
I got the translations for the last couple drama tracks of the “Hetalia: Axis Powers W Academy Newspaper Club: Sports Festival Edition!” Drama CD, so they have been added to the website! I also made a few edits and sound effect/action notations on the older tracks so hopefully they’re a bit easier to understand for those who are unable to listen to the tracks. That’s all for now! Please enjoy!
Just wanted to mention that chapters 288-290 have been added to the World Stars section!
Today marks the 8th year anniversary for Hetarchive! Starting back on July 22, 2009, I can’t believe it’s been so long!
To celebrate, I’m releasing some translation I had commissioned for the “Hetalia: Axis Powers W Academy Newspaper Club: Sports Festival Edition!” Drama CD! This CD was released back in 2013 and came packaged with the special edition of volume 6 of the Hetalia Axis Powers manga. I managed to get tracks 1-5 translated, but due to losing a lot of hours at work recently, I’ve been unable to finish commissioning tracks 6 and 7 (tracks 8 is a cast commentary track, so I’m not going to worry about that). To help out, I’ve opened up a Ko-fi page so I can accept small donations to assist with commissioning the last two tracks before the translator has to move on to other priorities. If you’d like to help, please visit the donation page.
I hope everyone enjoys the new translations!
EDIT: The remaining amount needed for the translation has been donated. Thank you to those who helped! I’ll post the next translations as soon as I get them!
It took a good while, but I went ahead and moved the World Stars chapters over to wordpress so I could finally get caught up with the current strips again. Currently this excludes Chapters 268, 273, and 276 as I’m having some file compatibility issues. I’ll get those up a bit later.
I was really busy for a few weeks. I finally got back to doing some work on the site. You’ll probably notice the Scanlations drop down menu has a couple more links, but they aren’t complete. I’m just going to end up jumping around for a bit as I rearrange some strips and fix some links. Specifically, I’m changing the “Events” section into a general “Holiday” section, so all holiday related strips and events will be in one spot. There’s a few early strips there, and I moved over some nonlinear strips too. Still so far to go, but it’s progress!
Just to announce, I have been working on moving over the Nonlinear strips to wordpress. There’s a lot of them, so it’ll take a while, but I linked up the navigation page just so the progress can be seen. I will be making some adjustments as I move these over so that they follow the listing on Himaruya’s website a little closer. This means that the Comic Diary strips will also be moved to nonlinear, but strips that have only been published on Himaruya’s blog will be moved to their own section. It should make sense when it’s done.
First of all, I apologize for the lack of updates. I’ve been a little busy, and with the uncertainty of what may happen with livejournal, I was working on importing the old livejournal Hetalia community over to the dreamwidth Hetalia community, so we’d have everything backed up just in case. A lot of the older scanlations and translations came from livejournal, so we didn’t want to lose that information.
Anyway, since that’s mostly done, I finally finished copying over the Main Storyline scanlations to the new layout! These are some of the longest webcomic strips, so they took a while, but they’re done! Please let me know if you come across any issues or errors within them.
I’ve got a little convention to prepare for this weekend, so it may be a little while before I can update again.
The past week I’ve been working on transferring the Drama CD translations over. They are finally available again, along with a more extensive catalogue of what Drama CDs have been released. Unfortunately a lot of them don’t have translations or are incomplete. Please let me know if you know of any Drama CD translations that I am missing or if you’d be willing to translate any of them.
Hello! As you can see, we’re trying out something new for the site! We’re switching over to a WordPress site so that we can integrate more of the site together as well as make it searchable and mobile friendly. Currently there’s a decent amount of content down as I work out the basics, but the scanlations are still available through the old directory for now. The blog mirror will remain separate.
I have no ETA for when the site will be complete, but I will work on it as I have time. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to leave a comment and I’ll try to respond in a timely manner.
Thank you in advance for your patience!
