Hetalia Axis Powers 1---Lovin' It!


The Hetalia anime is finally out for the non-keitai users.
I tried to access it on the Animate site but I guess all of Japan is trying to, too because I can't get through.
But I did manage to watch it.
The show is such pure crack and I thoroughly enjoyed it!
It does the manga justice and the seiyuu are well-casted...but I already knew that from the drama cd.

Chibitalia is so cute!!

BTW, if you are unfamiliar with Hetalia.  I recommend the manga and the anime if you are into gag manga.  It also helps if you don't mind a bit of BL/shounen-ai. And most importantly be aware that the series is not PC...the stereotypes are not meant to be taken seriously.  But if stereotypes bother you, you may be offended.

Even America is stereotyped, but I don't take it seriously at all and find lots of humor in him.:p

The good thing about the series is that it IS somewhat educational.  You can learn/review quite a bit of history reading it.:p

My history is horrible (er so is my geography) so I actually find myself learning a lot from the Hetalia manga. I'm waiting for Animate to stop hating my internet connection! Or is it the other way round, lolx.

Your better off giving up on Animate if it's still not working. Niconico or YT is faster.
I'm learning a lot of history, too. Especially, stuff my classes never really focused on. I'm learning a lot of European history that I hadn't learned before.^^

Apparently animate tv blocked all foreigners...I won't be able to access it from here >_< I can't even listen to KKM radio for that reason...that's so sad ._.

That sucks about KKM radio. I heard about that and I really hope it's not a permanent thing. It could be due to Hetalia and the protesters from Korea. In order for the show not to offend anyone outside of Japan, I guess they just decided to cut everyone off.

As for watching Hetalia on the Animate site, I can say you're not alone. I gave up trying to get through and just watched it on YT. I hear it's also been posted on niconico, too. Only problem is as soon as its posted it gets taken off. Your best bet is to go to the hetalia comm for alternatives. 頑張れ!

Excellent! I'll have to try and find it on YT or NND then. I've read just a little of the manga and thought it was very cute! Thanks for letting me know it's out!
