posted on by Bamboo Dong
Valentine's Day in Japan is typically celebrated by women giving chocolates to men, but this year, Hetalia fans have the chance to experience the opposite, and from a voice actor, too. To celebrate the upcoming launch of Hetalia The World Twinkle and the July 24 release date of the opening theme sung by Daisuke Namikawa's (Italy), Animate AKIBA Culture's ZONE is holding a special Valentine's Day event in conjunction with the series.
Those who spend at least 1,000 yen (about US$8.50) on qualifying goods starting February 1 will receive vouchers to come back to the store on February 14 to receive chocolates from Atsushi Kousaka, who plays Prussia. The chocolates will feature either Italy, Germany, Japan, or Prussia. The event vouchers will be distributed on a first come, first served basis.
The store will also be selling a new collection of can badges, mascot straps, and other Hetalia items.
