Synopsis

The third and fourth seasons of the Hetalia Axis Powers anime. A continuation of the first 2 seasons under a new name, still adapting the online webcomics drawn by Himaruya Hidekaz.

Based on a popular web-released manga series by Hidekazu Himaruya, this has been described as a "cynical gag" story set in Europe in the years between WW1 and WW2 (1915-1939), using exaggerated caricatures of the different nationalities as portrayed by a gaggle of bishōnen. For example, the Italia Veneziano character is into pasta and women. The Deutsche (German) bishi loves potatoes and sausages, and Nippon is an otaku boy. Installments of the manga have jumped back and forth in setting from the ancient times to modern-day geopolitics. The manga's title comes the Japanese words for "useless" (hetare) and Italy (Italia).

Overview:

Cue the squealing fangirls! Today I review the 2nd part of Hetalia.


Story and characters: 3/10

As a huge fan of history, I really liked the concept of Hetalia with people representing countries and felt it was a MASSIVE waste of potential. It has a lot of comedy potential because countries typically act only in rational self interest and often commit horrible deeds that they try to rationalize. If countries were people, almost all of them would be complete fucking assholes! A few notable exceptions would be China and India, who abuse themselves but haven't really been too bad towards anyone else...at least relative to other countries.

Meepo-
Hetalia World Series is the continuation of the wildly popular and beloved web comic (later adapted into a manga) drawn by Himaruya Hidekaz. Not much has changed, but with the introduction of some popular nation-tans (I'm looking at you Prussia), World Series is shaping up to be one of the most enjoyable installments of Hetalia yet.

The format of the show is the same as previous installments. The four and a half minute episodes are broken up into little vignettes, or short stories, with one or two comic strips used per punch line. These can vary from interaction between Germany and Prussia, to America and Japan read more

A continuation to this fun and cool view on history, with the help of sexy bishonen and adorable Shota points to keep the story active and funny. It's pretty much the same as the first season, except there are many extra mini stories added and the introduction to many new Countries and plot developments.
If you enjoyed the first season, you will surely enjoy this second clever season~!

I was blown with laughter when I first watch Hetalia! It made me like many of our worlds countries!

To start off I been only watching the english dub version. That's because so I can hear each person's unique accents, which are great by the way cause the english voice actors did a very good job trying to capture each countries own accent!

I give story an 8 because they do kinda teach you a few events that happen in world history, although each episode is only about 5 minutes long.

The characters are awesome! I like how the anime captures each country's stereotype. For example America read more
