An anime where they portray history with personified countries.
It's pretty stereotypical and moe.
Hetare (Japanese stupid, idiotic) and Itaria (Japanese for Italy) make up the title "Hetalia."
It's mainly focusing on Italy's cowardice in WWII.

Personally, I love Hetalia.
I think it's a great doorway for people to get interested in History and the world.
Plus it's pretty damn funny and the dub for it isn't even that bad. Personally, I prefer it over the Japanese version because the accents really give it life. And what not.
I also like it because it makes Japan /not/ seem like the best country EVARRRR in anime.

Though, basically everything comes with some crazy ass fandom. The phrase I DESPISE is "I learned my history for Hetalia!"
Hetalia is NOT a substitute for a history book.
I also just don't get the pairings.
I don't know about you, but shipping two countries together is just /wrong/
Perhaps I could understand the whole Poland/Lithuania or Austria/Hungary to an extent since they were 'married'

Well, Prussia x himself is fairly understandable.
Hetalia is one of my favourite anime/mangas.

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...)
