I didn't know where to put this, so I left it here. It basically concerns the lovely maidens that this site is best known for.
It started when I heard Hina Ichigo mutter 'ooh la la' in one part of the manga, and it got me thinking. Do each of the Maidens represent a different country/nationality? Judging from Hina's brief French there, I took a stab in the dark and came up with these suggestions.
Shinku - Her preference for tea and her high-class manor give off strong, upper-class English lady vibes.
Hina - The small French bit, and her curled hairstyle seem to indicate French/Anglo signs.
Suiseiseki - The headpiece and how her green dress is designed, coupled with shoes that look a bit clog-like, make me feel like she's supposed to be a young Swiss lady.
Souseiseki - Likewise for Souseiseki, she is dressed in a Swiss manner for a young boy.
Kanaria - Kanaria's was one of the hardest to pin down, but judging from her dress design, I came up with either Slavic or Russian traits.
