We’re back! Actually, I’m not surprised that all 5 Nordics were voted one after another considering that they’re such a tight knit group. Personally, Iceland is my favorite Nordic, so I’m glad to finally be able to do him!

  • He is the second shortest of the Nordics
  • Iceland’s age is said to be somewhere between 16 and 17
  • Though he has no canon name, Himaruya has stated that he liked the names Emil Steilsson, Egill, Sigurður, and Eiríkur as names he liked for Iceland
  • Iceland is uncomfortable with his thick accent and tries his best to hide it.
  • He thinks cola is “okay”
  • When it comes to Mr.Puffin, Iceland can be short-tempered
  • As a child, he was introverted and lonely
  • He has a nice relationship with Turkey, and the two get along well to where Iceland affectionately refers to him as “Pops”. Iceland also seems to view Turkey as a father figure and wants to protect him
  •  He was one of the last Nordics to be designed, despite appearing in the comics before Denmark and Norway
  • He is very fond of licorice and hot springs
  • Due to recent financial problems, Russia has been helping him out. Although Russia is nice to him and treats him kindly, Iceland is suspicious of him.
  • Norway is considered to be the “home where Iceland’s heart truly is” and the two do care for each other.
  • Iceland will try to speak English whenever he can
  • Though in The Beautiful World Iceland’s hair is blond, his hair color has been stated to be white

That’s if for now! Sorry this was late. From now on Character Of The Week’s will be held on Saturdays. Voting ends at 6pm EST!

Thank you and have a nice day!

Analysis by the staff! The level of their intimacy through the eyes of Director Hiroshi Watanabe: Finland & Sweden

Su-san almost doesn’t speak at all, but these two are really nice people, and I feel really comforted when I draw them.  Although the accents of the Nordics are very strong, I am really glad that the voice actors kind of improvised on them. Also, Iceland’s lopapeysa is cute, isn’t it? I wanted to include the scene where the dry cleaner brought a handful of lopapeysa back to him, but I wasn’t able to this time. It’s really a shame.
