So last week I had a bunch of people debating whether Prussia was albino or not. Over the week, I did some research on it.
I found that Himaruya has not confirmed him being an albino or not. However, it is hard to just declare him an albino when his appearance changes so much. In the official colour chart, his hair is kind of a white-ish shade. His eyes are a red violet, as described, but they look more violet than red. His hair and eye colour are never kept constant through the sketches. His hair varies from blonde to white to silver. his eyes come in many varieties of violets, red-violets, reds, and pinks. And then there’s Christmas 2007.
In Christmas 2007 he has dark blonde hair and blue eyes. But this was 2007. Hetalia was just beginning. This was Himaruya’s original design for Prussia, but he feared he looked too much like Germany. But albinos have also been known to have blue or violet eyes. Remember, this was a test run.
In the first 4 seasons, his hair is grey and he has red eyes. But no offence to studio DEEN, but they aren’t accurate in colour. At all. The one thing they did get right the the new season didn’t was Belgium’s hair colour (I’m still upset about it).
“Ich bin ein Preuße, kennt ihr meine Farben?” (I am a Prussian, do you know my colors?). This is a line from the Prussian anthem which corresponds greatly to the topic. While he is not confirmed to be “albino”, he shows some traits. You can think what you want, but I’m not positive so I’m not taking sides.
