Recently Himaruya posted a new image of Canada and Kumajiro on his blog with the text:
"When I was looking up on Holland I was slightly bothered that Canada-san was randomly so manly."
I laughed when I read that thinking of the IAM project. Still, I kept reading and someone mentioned that it was more of a weird 'it's so cute it hurts' sort of bothered in Japanese standards. XD
Just thought you all ought to know.
