i have no idea why i'm so excited-
it might be because i heard Himapapa might be drawing some strips based on it!!
ok- before i start false rumors, here are some things i found that led me to think this:
a.) i saw a thing on livejournal (an interview with himaruya [link]
) (caution: i can't see it on my Mac, so i suggest using a Dell or something else), in which he said he's interested in making some South American characters.
i dunno about you, but i think that's a big deal.
found on tumblr a post that said he was interested in making characters for every country that plays in the next World Cup.
i sadly can't find the post because 1.) i don't has a tumblr :/ (EDIT:
i just got one: [link]
) 2.) tumblr acts like a deep hole of indefinite space once you start looking for an old post. if i could find that post, i would like to search where that blogger had found that information. nowadays, you have to depend on real articles and true events in order to get genuine information.
so i hope i didn't misinterpret anything (heh). i really wish the internet was helpful whenever i want to find this stuff.
i mean, it took me FOREVER to find Himaruya's official site ([link]
his blog and comics can all be found in the link. )
if you're interested in finding out about which countries have already started to qualify (rounds have begun), here's the 2014 FIFA website: [link]
(go to "Qualifiers" and "Groups and Standings" to clearly see who's made it so far.)
the Qualifying rounds are going on, not the Cup itself. many nations have played, including Puerto Rico and Honduras, so check out the "Matches" section!!
