((In recent blog posts, Himaruya has been drawing alternate designs of some of the characters... While they don't outright say "2P" in the blog posts themselves, when I was saving them to put them in the stash, the filenames said "2p" in them... So, does that mean these are official 2P designs for more of the characters? (Originally I was going to say that they weren't 2P!designs because it didn't say so in the blog, but after seeing the original file names, I think I'm wrong...) The translated blog itself can be found here.

But what is your opinion? Are these official 2P designs? Or is it just coincidence that the filenames happened to say "2p" in them? And if these are official 2P designs, what are your thoughts on them?

There was also a Goth!Hong Kong, but the filename didn't say 2p in it... Then again, neither did the filename for Romano... I still like the Romano design, though.))

Hmm... My theory is that the '2P's' are probably the darker sides of history. Like the official Hetalia chapters and episodes generally make light of history right? (Except Davie, the Revolutionary War and Joan of Arc I guess...). I mean, except for Romano, they all look a bit more serious and darker than their usual versions...
Hehe, that's just what I think but I think it gives them much more depth (sorry, I've got to admit fanon 2P doesn't really interest meSweating a little... ).

Ya...no. They look nice and awesome and all but it better be a mistake because I like the Non-Official designs of most of the characters...so even if these come out as official I will say it's stupid = - = I like them...but just no...

((^^; I like the non-official ones too... The only problem is that they aren't really known in Japan. These, on the other hand, may end up being the ones Japanese fans will end up taking to...
To be honest, I actually really like the new ones. Especially for Romano... Who can resist that smile~?))

I can honestly say that I have no idea. O.O

Although I would actually prefer that Himaruya doesn't add the 2p!s in the manga. Sure it would be fun to see how the 2p!s and 1p!s would really react with each other, but everything would be official. They would have defined personalizes and looks and I really prefer seeing everyone's different versions of their 2p!s. If everything becomes canon, almost everyone will start using the one's Himaruya created. Everything would be the same and there would be no creativity.

Although, I have a question. Didn't the fans create the design for the 2p!s ? If I remember correctly Beek created 2p! England's design.

((*nods* Yeah, I can see that... Although to be honest, the Nyotalia characters made an appearance, but we still don't know all that much about their personalities, aside from some details. Who knows?

Yes, the fans did make many of the designs. However, they only made them after Himaruya himself made the designs for the Axis and Nyotalia characters. So, in a way, it's a mix. The 2P designs for the allies are based on the ones for the Nyotalia characters. For example, 2P!Nyo!England was wearing a pink dress, had blue eyes, and had a plate of sweets in her hand. Going from that, Beek made 2P!England's design. The same goes for the others.))

((^^ Same here... Do you think they might be the real designs, or is Himaruya just leading us on?))

Hmm...
It looks to me like a mixture of both possible 2P designs and just the deeper sides of the characters that are rarely seen.
Either way, it seems like all good fun to Himaruya-san.
