Below is a message from the Japanese fandom regarding fanworks of Japan and the tsunami-earthquake. This is a serious issue, so kindly take time to read this.
The original, full message is here on Pixiv and for those who do not have accounts, you can read it here
Japan bandaged up or bloody.
Japan being seen hurt by the Earthquake and Tsunami.
Fan art of Hetalia characters helping Japan.
Fan art of Hetalia characters crying over what has happened.
Fan art of the Earthquake occurring because of an Hetalia character.
Pairing fanart (Het or Yaoi.) of a character comforting Japan.
...and many more of the like may be intolerable and offensive to Japanese fans and others.
IF YOU OR SOMEONE YOU KNOW HAS SUBMITTED FANWORKS WITH ONE OF THE ABOVE REASONS IN THE PICTURE, PLEASE REMOVE THEM IMMEDIATELY.
This is not to ask you to stop drawing Japan altogether. We are not discouraging you to express your concern over the tragedy that has happened. We are telling you to please have some tact. Whatever goodwill you could have intended in your art will be lost by virtue of the fact it's fanart of a very raw, very immense tragedy.
Be mindful and responsible of what you post.
IF YOU WANT TO HELP, YOU CAN PARTICIPATE OR DONATE TO THE FOLLOWING WEBSITES FOUND HERE.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
