Hetalia The Beautiful World

Genres: comedy
Themes: bishounen, historical, moe, parody
Plot Summary: Italy, once home of the strongest empire in the world, has changed. This is the story of Italy, now a cowardly pasta-loving fool, and his friends (other personified countries of the world) as they live through strange moments in world history. (This is a continuation of the first series “Hetalia: Axis Powers” and “Hetalia World Series”. However, its design will be somewhat different, the theme being Kira☆Kira (キラ☆キラ, literally “Sparkle☆Sparkle”) because it’s supposed to look prettier than either “Axis Powers” or “World Series”. More new characters will be introduced to the series.

Hetalia Axis Powers: Paint It, White! (movie) Vintage: 2010-06-05

I must say this show cracked me up. I loved to study history in school and I liked this series.

The episode I really like so far is Episode 8 where Italy keeps getting captured by the Allies and sent back to Germany. Only UK was smart enough to use Italy to capture Germany. Lol. Germany must have been technically advanced to have DVDs back then. And at the end Japan finally answers the phone. Lol
