I can't find any reference of his jacket in the manga, where theres a 50 on the back. I have the first volume of the manga and he never turns around D:

Anyone have any references of the back at ALL? D:

Well, after looking through all 160 pages of the artist's blog, as well as his entire gallery page back to 2003... i haven't found any reference whatsoever for America's jacket. As well as going through every comic with an american flag on his website.

All i got was a picture he took of a keychain. http://i54.tinypic.com/34q1hf8.jpg

Going to continue my search. Since i have nothing better to do while i wait for the Comic Con site to come back up :'|

EDIT: After searching on this site, i found these:

America's jacket in the manga actually has different numbers for a while before settling on "50". I'll see if I can find any references but I'm not sure what you're looking to gain from them--Hetalia's art is rather inconsistent with details so if you're looking for the size of the numbers I'd base it more on personal preference then on any official representation.

Read my other posts: I figured it out myself XD;;

And i dont think it has other numbers... i checked many references, and all either had a 50 or no numbers at all

...You're telling me to go through all your posts to make sure you've figured it out before trying to help you? xD;;; I'm not going to but I'm happy you figured it out.

Well, in the original online posts it did--the numbers used to be random until Himaruya settled on 50 for the 50 states. I remember seeing at least one strip where it had the number 96 on the back in strips translated by fans. They were cleaned up for publication.

There was TWO posts XD;; Not that hard to look through.

Oh, can you link me to that? I've never seen that. I've read the webcomic all the way through, but i must have missed that.
