Hetalia: Axis Powers

Show Summary

Hetalia: Axis Powers is a Japanese anime series based on the popular manga series of the same name that retells historical events from the early 1900s, particularly the events surrounding the second World War. The word "Hetalia" roughly translates to "incompetent Italy," and this series offers a comical look at the devastating events of the World Wars, portraying the countries that participated in the fighting as anthropomorphic, humanoid characters. Each character represents a different country from either the Axis or Allied powers, with the characters possessing the qualities and personalities associated with each country. Japan is a hard-working recluse who adapts quickly to the lifestyles of different cultures, although the customs of the Western World often shock Japan. America, on the other hand, is headstrong and enthusiastic, prone to inventing grand schemes and complicated plans and has an endless appetite for hamburgers. Hetalia: Axis Powers is an inventive and humorous historical series, portraying the countries of the world as characters who don't know how to get along.moreless
