Quote :

Hetalia: Axis Powers (ヘタリア Axis Powers [color:de1e=#00e]?) is a manga and anime series by Hidekaz Himaruya placed in a World War-era setting in which the countries are represented by anthropomorphic characters. Hetalia (ヘタリア [color:de1e=#00e]?) is a made-up word combining hetare (へタレ [color:de1e=#00e]?) Japanese for useless and Italia (イタリア [color:de1e=#00e]?). This is to make light of Italy's apparent cowardice during World War II.
Himaruya originally created Hetalia as an online webcomic, and so far two tankōbon have been published by Gentosha Comics, the first on March 28, 2008 and the second on December 10, 2008. The series was later adapted into drama CDs, and an anime series created by Studio Deen has also began streaming online.
The main historical events portrayed in this work occur between World War I and World War II. The series often uses satire and comedy to address well-known and lesser-known historical facts.

[edit] Anime


A 26-episode anime adaptation of Hetalia: Axis Powers was announced on July 24, 2008.[7] It is directed by Bob Shirohata (Gravitation, Diamond Daydreams) and will be animated by Studio Deen. It was originally scheduled for broadcast on Kids Station on January 24, 2009 but was later canceled. The cancellation only affected the Kids Stations broadcasts; plans to make the series available through mobile phone and Internet streaming were not affected. The controversies arose when numerous Korean protesters called for the cancellation of the series, claiming that the personified character of Korea was an insulting representation of Koreans. Kids Station claimed that the Korea character does not appear in the anime and that it was "unaware of the criticism in Korea,"[8] and cited "various circumstances" as being behind the decision to cancel its airing of the anime, but they did not provide further information as to the nature of these circumstances.[9][10] A second 26-episode season of Hetalia: Axis Powers was announced on April 16, 2009.[11]

Ok, so my explanations are never great, which is why I've quoted Wikipedia. But my friends Zel and Jess recently got me into this and I'm really addicted to it now x3
Eps are only 5 minutes long.. and so far, unfortunatly, there's only 12 subbed episodes. But it's a really great anime; quite funny, and worth a watch =)
Japan for the win guys ^.^

So, has anyone else watched this? What do you all think? =)

Hetalia is the best way to learn history, I guess. Especially since most of the historic information are trivial, it encourages you to read your history books.
