People say Japan always references Germany and England all the time in anime and manga but is there any reason why Finland is always mentioned quite a bit, too?

Most people in Finland fit the stereo type that nips have of all westerns.
>Aryanmotherland


They get to draw the stereotype AND no be racist.

>>134653457
Japs love Finns. Nobody quite knows why.

They do have similar climate, both languages make it kinda easy to learn to pronounce the other, and both were kinda made into Axis during WW2... but that's about all I can think of.

Nah it's not mentioned more than Sweden or any other irrelevant shithole. I think they love Norway since their mythos is so often used in almost every fantasy work.
>>
>>134654422
nigga, Finland is everywhere!

Besides the nowadays generic as fuck use of (terms like) Valkyries and Valhalla, I don't really recall there being that much Nordic elements in animu.

Meanwhile, we just got an actual Winter War manga.

Swedish mythology IS Norwegian mythology.
Norwegian != Norse

I like how white death is in the background and has a generic desing and the lips-licking fairy is in front.
Japan just can't stop inserting waifus everywhere, can they? It would have been better if they made him a her and rolled with it.

But that's true for my country as well and japs don't even know it exists.
I can only find japanese lessons in english and their phonetics just complicate things.

The hell is this?
Also I don't actually know any stats but I sometimes feel like we have a very high concentration of people who are into animu and manga.
It's probably not any more than any other country though. Just somehow feels like it sometimes.

Finns loli here.

Why is Sealand never mentioned in manga though?

I am Asian so I don't know much about western country. Call me ignorance but is the statement above true? Because if it is, I'll move to Finland no matter what it takes.

Finnish people don't do small talk with strangers, they only do it with friends and such.
Anyone talking to stranger in bus or train etc. is considered to be weirdo or drunk.

It's rare to find a weeb drawn comic that can pass so easily something drawn by a moonlander.

Also, are there really that many blonde finns? I knew a few some years ago and they were all blonde and now this kraut-made series has blondes taking the center too.

There's something about it that makes it seem pretty obvious that it's not a real manga. Maybe it's the shape of the speech bubbles, or the fact that there's hardly any sound effects, but it doesn't really feel right. I guess the characters look pretty convincing though.

Left to right.

Yeah, that too, but I meant by just overall looking at the pages without reading it.

Finn here. Yes, quite very many. Not all blonde obviously. There's a fair share of brown of all shades but dark brown or very dark/black is rare here much like fair hair is rare in southern europe.

It's all down to Tove Jansson, OP. Nips just can't get enough of the Moomins.

I was in Helsinki airport a couple of weeks ago and honest to goodness there were whole Japanese tour groups queuing up for photos with a statue.

Japan's bathing culture and Finland's sauna culture are also somewhat similar.

Finnish and Japanese are superficially really similar, and there are a lot of shared words that are pronouned exactly the same.
>>
>>134664022
When the artist has a girl that cute and knows how compose their panels that well I don't think anyone's going to be paying attention to the speech bubbles and sound effects. That said there are mangakas out there who don't make use of much sound effects and have horizontally aligned bubbles for their foreign settings.
