Winter Preview: Axis Powers Hetalia


I’m currently having this disease of immediately being addicted to Hetalia Axis powers right after I’ve just broke up with my boyfriend seen a cute little picture of it on the net and watched some MADs about them in some anime parodies. Continue down for more APH!!!

When I started browsing for the manga, I was really surprised that it had me waiting for more and more scanlated chapters to be released! (God, if I only understand Kanji…) If I were to describe it, I would say that it’s like Lucky Star, only with assorted international bishies as the main cast/comedians. It’s very hilarious so I guess I’ll be blogging a few chapters of it. And the best news today, there’s also going to be an anime of it this coming January!!! OMIGOD!


Hetalia (“useless” + “Italy”) is the story of the countries of the world made into people, carrying with them that nation’s stereotypes. The main setting is the WWI/WWII era, but other scenes from history (such as the American Revolution) are sometimes depicted.

The story is centered around the Axis Powers, and the main character is Italy, who is a clumsy idiot who loves pasta and pizza. He is joined by the serious sausage-eating Germany and the polite and shy Japan. It is a gag manga that takes pieces of history and makes them funny, poking fun at the stereotypes and quirks of countries around the world. Because of this, fans say that this manga is the key to world peace.

Way to get more interested in history 😛

    You broke up with your boyfriend?! :O 😦 It must a sad day for you…

    Just remember that the fact your relationship ended does not mean that there is something wrong with you as a person – the relationship just didn’t work out.

    Don’t hesitate to express your feelings about your break up. Talk to your friends and family.

    Maybe you’ll reunite with your boyfriend later, and, if not, you remain good friends.

    Perhaps, this change in your life is for the better and will lead to a brighter future for you.

    @Kitsune: Yeah we broke up, though it’s both of our decision to do it. We just found out we enjoy each others’ company when we’re just friends, and I would also like to focus more on studies since we’re both graduating… Thank you very much for the comfort Kitsune 🙂 , you’re really very nice ^_^.

    @issa-sa: OMG it’s been a long time XD.. And yeah. It’s realllllyyy cute!!! I’ll post up MADs here later ^_^.
