Germany never expected that the descendant of Ancient Rome would become his ally in the war. After meeting North Italy, Germany is stunned that the once powerful empire is now just a useless crybaby with a concerningly deep love for pasta. To make matters worse, his only other ally, Japan, is near-impossible to read and has equally strange interests. While Germany grapples with his eccentric partners, the Allies are knocking at their door, looking for a fight.

Using personified nations and humor, Hetalia Axis Powers recounts the events of World Wars I and II in a comedic light. Along the way, the relationship between nations and cultural anecdotes are explored in a quirky and fun manner.

Honestly, a lot of the stereotypes are really spot on a kind of ...

Italy (after whom the manga is named), Germany, and Japan - the "Axis Powers" - are the primary protagonists, followed by the US, UK, France, Russia, and China - the "Allied Forces." Other characters include N. and E. European and a handful of Asian/Mediterranean countries.

Kitayume follows a routine of briefly introducing country-characters' historical backgrounds before situating them in comical and often ecchi interactions with other powers, ie. Lithuania as US's housekeeper, China as an emo drunk, Hungary as ...

Since the anime is coming out soon I felt the manga deserves a review of some sort, I will put aside my fan girl heart and attempt to give my unbias impressions of this series.

Story: The story essentially follows the history of the world... I'm afraid to say that if you've ever picked up a history book the series is already spoiled for youxD Ok... Not exactly. There are actually alot of Historical elements as the back bone of the story, Primarily the early 1900's during WWI and later, but for the most part the real "story" lies in the character interaction like a slice ...
