Synopsis

Think of it like WWII, except every country is a pretty boy instead. A hilariously stereotypical pretty boy. America loves burgers, Russia is into the vodka, and China has pandas and a wok. It is centered mostly around Italy, who has both a North and South character. The Hetaria portion of the name is probably mocking Italy, as Hetare means useless.

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 read more

Axis Powers Hetalia is the ongoing project of Japanese web-comic artist Kitayume. The gag manga features the antics of anthropomorphic countries in bishonen and bishoujo form. 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 read more

Brilliance all around! The first few words that caught my eye made me chuckle! What an absolutely delightful manga! I couldn't stop my self from laughing, with every turn of the page!

With the combination of some quirky but true political facts, mixed together with chibi-like characters you've found a combination for the win! It lightheartedly pokes fun at the countries and how they relate to each other in a childish way. Which is completely true and hilarious, all at once!

Absolutely amazing! :D Read it, NOW NOW NOW!

If you are a history buff or travel buff or you just enjoy REALLY FUNNY manga, you will enjoy this. I am from the States and I travel a lot so it's interesting to me to see how people perceive us Americans. It's also interesting because during my travels, I tend to develop stereotypes of each country in my head. Don't get me wrong, I definitely do not mean this in a bad or malicious way, but rather in the playful way that Hetalia seems to capitalize on.

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