A Japanese comedy online manga/anime taking place around the time of World War II. All of its characters represent modern day countries, such as Kiku Honda(Japan), Ludwig(Germany), and Feliciano(Italy).
All the characters are the stereotypes of their countries. Such as Alfred(America) is often seen eating cheeseburgers, Heracles(Greece) loves cats, Feliciano(Italy) is addicted to pasta, and the most infamous one: Francis(France) is the extreme bisexual hopeless romantic.
It was originally going to be aired on TV, but Korean protesters found its portrayal of the Korea character(Im Young Soo) to be offensive.(So it was canceled.)
"My favorite Hetalia character is China(Wang Yao) because he loves pandas and Hello Kitty!" (All true facts)
"Its so cute how Greece always is cuddling his kitties!"
"Francis has to stop groping people." (Also true facts...)

Hetalia: Axis Powers or Hetalia: World Series is a Japanese webcomic, later adapted as a manga and an anime series, by Hidekaz Himaruya.

The series presents an allegorical interpretation of political and historic events, particularly of the World War II era, in which the various countries are represented by stereotyped anthropomorphic characters.

It's a comedy, and historical genre.
Awesome Hetalia Fan: I love South Korea! He's so cute, too bad he isn't in the anime...

Another Awesome Hetalia Fan: Yeah, me too, I love Romano and Poland, too, though!

A Japanese anime originating as a manga. The show takes place during World War II, and each country is represented as a character. Each character represents many of the stereotypes of that particular nation, such as Italy's love for pasta.
Some feel that the show is educational to an extent, although not much is done educationally other than references to events that coincide with the episode's plot.
The fandom is often criticized for using stereotypes to define the characters' personalities and the way that counties are stereotyped.
The episodes in the anime are short: Most last around five minutes. An episode usually consists of one or two groups of characters with a small plot.
Person 1: I love Hetalia! Greece by far is definitely my fav character.
Person 2: I like Hetalia, although the stereotypes annoy me.
Person 3: I hate that gay piece of crap. It should have been canceled a LONG time ago.
