The pasta-loving North Italy, stalwart Germany, and timid Japan continue their misadventures through history as they reenact various events leading up to and during the Second World War. This includes the turbulent relationship between Hungary and Prussia, the War of Austrian Succession, Lithuania's early days, and the Invasion of Poland. During such tumultuous times, how will these personified nations work their way through the conflicts?

Before I start my review, I will state something:

YES, I am guy and no, I don't have a girlfriend (so I'm single lol) who forced me to watch this. Also, this review will include my perception on Axis Power as well.

Here's my opening act...what do you get when you have a bunch of good looking lads who embody the very stereotype of their countries and live like ordinary people with political, economic, and even social problems? Well, this anime is the answer to my question.

Hetalia, even the anime title, itself is quite synonymous to the actual plot with the Heta- part meaning, "useless/pathetic" (in a ...

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

Story and characters: 3/10
