Few people wonder what occurs between warring nations when they are not fighting each other. In Hetalia, the countries find themselves outside of their usual setting: working together in a school newspaper club, reminiscing about former historical figures, and searching for Santa Claus? With the potential for comedic calamity always around the corner, there is no predicting what exactly these adventures entail!

The Beautiful World is the fifth season of Hetalia which was aired in 2013. Major changes in the artwork as well as the episode format were implemented along with the new ending song. It really lived to its title aesthetically, but does it have what it takes to entertain its fandom for the last four seasons?

Story: 6/10

The Beautiful world still does not have a major plot but it benefited from the changes in the episode format. A whole story (as against to spreading the strip for two or three episodes) is told every episode which gives it an anime with slice of life theme feel. read more

Hetalia: The Beautiful World is the fifth season to the series Hetalia. The style has changed, and it was very good in my taste. This time, the director of the Hetalia series is new, but he did a very good job of the series.

The story to Hetalia isn't exactly a plot as well as the previous seasons, each episode is different from the rest, and random. The series is a comedy, but the comedy is to make you enjoy yourself and have a good time. I do say that the historical facts are lessened a bit, some episodes are just random, others reflect on the read more

Hetalia is an offensive and brainless show that is just the right amount of trashy for an easy rewatch. As strange as it is, it never fails to entertain me. If you're looking for a genuinely good anime with thoughtful writing and stunning animation, this isn't really the one.

Story: 5
Hetalia doesn't really have much of a story, rather it exists as a collection of nonsensical historical retellings.

Art: 6
Although the animation isn't exactly striving for anything revolutionary, the sketchy art style fits well with the overall crackhead atmosphere.

Sound: 3
The OP and ED are fun to listen to, but other than the soundtrack is not that special. read more

Hetalia: The Beautiful World is the fifth season of Himaruya Hidekaz's Hetalia, a webcomic turned Anime which features anthromorphised countries as the characters and historical trivia and cultural comparisons as it's main presentation.

Story: Rating- Not Applicable

- Since Hetalia doesn't really follow any plot or have a presentation that has a purpose of following a sequential narrative, it will be only fair to put the story rating into "not applicable".

Art: 8

- The character illustrations and animation are crisper, more detailed and had a lot more differentiation than they got in the past seasons. The background is still a bit dull. However, it's good that it does read more
