A small theme that's kind of occurring in my recent tribute making.
China and Japan Awareness
This is the completed/LQ version of the AMV I was working on to show the severed bonds between China and Japan.
As a Chinese child growing up and raised in an Asian family who had experienced World War II , I was always bothered by how much my grandparents and parents hated the Japanese, especially because I enjoyed watching both Chinese cartoons and Japanese anime.
Then I found out the topic of hatred through films directed by the Chinese based off the Japanese butchering of Shanghainese Villagers. That set a little bit of an impression but I wasn't convinced since it was obviously biased.
Plus, I still wasn't happy with the bridge cutting the two countries in half even now in 2013. (it's gotten better, but they're still fighting over land ownership)
So, I've decided to show the bonds of China and Japan that should be rethought on through Hetalia's offer of country personifications.
So yeah, long description is long. XD
Enjoy the tribute. I put my heart and soul into it.
Highlights China and Japan's conflict with each other after Japan betrayed China and slashed him in the back, leaving him with a mental and physical scar that never properly healed. Japan and China are now literally against each other in their separate grouping - with the allies, and the axis powers.
I intend to show Japan and China trying their best to follow this new order, but still thinking about how much they missed each other in the good old days.
Though they deny it, they still cannot completely forget each other.
Hence the theme, "Never Forget..."
Thanks for reading!
