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 anthropomorphic characters. Hetalia (ヘタリア) is a portmanteau combining hetare (へタレ, Japanese for “useless”) and Italia (イタリア). This is to make light of Italy’s apparent cowardice during World War II. [Grabbed from wiki. Will edit later ^^;;;]
The response to the series is so overwhelming, it is currently in it’s 3rd season (Hetalia ~ World Series) now.
If you haven’t started watching it, please do so already! No BL fan girl should miss it lol~ So many bishonens in one series!!!
