Title: Am I the only one...?
Post by: Beth-la on January 03, 2011, 10:28:17 AM
Am I the only one that doesn't know what Hetalia is? Apparently, people love it, and I hear a lot about it, but I have no idea what it is. Can anyone clue me in?

It's a web comic turned manga turned anime that takes the worlds countries and personifies them, and then they play out world history. They're all really stereotypical (for example, Canada covers everything he eats in maple syrup and his twin brother America loves pizza), and it's pretty funny to watch/read. :)

Each country/character interaction is based on events around WWII - so it's a fun spin on history. It started as a web comic (originally cross posted to deviantArt) in 2003/2004. The fandom became popular really fast when the anime was released two years ago.

Hetalia is a really great manga/anime that centers around the axis powers (Italy, Germany and Japan) in WWII. Italy is kinda the main character. It's really funny and oftentimes quite silly. The countries are all in the form of people. For instance, France is a long-haired romantic, America is a burger loving guy who's always getting on everyone else's nerves, and Canada is soft spoken and is always being mistaken for America. Also, Poland has a valley girl accent, for no particular reason other then the fact that it's ridiculous and funny. The second issue of the physical book form of the manga was just released in Canada last week. I highly suggest it. :D
