I love the new design! It's a lot more like Himaruya's as compared to the previous one - Also no more whitewashing, and I'm happy about that.

Although for some reasons, the art still seem a little derpy to me. Not complaining though, it's better than the past four seasons.

Ohh, I'm quite excited for this. c: Some of my friends I spoke to about it where very (pleasantly!) surprised to hear this as well.

Gotta say I'm hoping that the quality will go up a bit, since I quite like the new art >u>

Question: what's whitewashing characters?

Oct 1, 2012 1:32 PM by ihateeveryone

I hope they don't change the seiyuus. Other than that, i like the new design, and i hope they increase the quality.

No more whitewashing characters please. I want Seychelles to actually looks like she's from the country she represents.

As long as the content ends up being better than World Series, I don't care who's in charge.

For god's sake, I hope that there won't be any more Nekotalia.

Lets see how the new team does when the first episode comes out.

I seriously hope it will improve the show. Because yeah, previously the show was kind of... not that great. I mean, it really definitely could have been improved. And the movie was full of the dullest characterization and most boringly bland repetition in the existence of mankind.

Unfortunately nothing really notable stands out to me about the staff changes...

But hey, I'll get my hopes up anyway. Heck, maybe they'll even stop switching character's colour palettes around and whitewashing characters.

(ha ha I'm kidding they're always going to do that)

I hope the quality will be better. I love Hetalia to death and the manga is amazing in every possible way. I did like the anime too, but we have to admit it had some serious flaws.

Oh, I hope the episodes will be longer too ^^'
