Be sure to follow the Must Watch Animes collection for daily recs! ^_^
Hetalia: Axis Powers
Manga written by: Hidekaz Himaruya
Anime directed by: Bob Shirohata
Number of episodes: 52 (Each episode is 5 minutes long)
Summary (from Anime News Network and Wikipedia):
Italy, once home of the strongest empire in the world, has changed. This is the story of Italy, now a cowardly pasta-loving fool, and his friends (other personified countries of the world) as they live through strange moments in world history.
The main storyline's events occur during World War II, but the vast majority of the comics take place during other historical events, modern holidays, or at no specific time whatsoever. The series often uses satire and light-hearted comedy to reinterpret well-known events as well as less common historical and cultural trivia. Historical, political, economic, and military interaction between countries is generally represented in Hetalia as social interactions and misunderstandings between the characters.
Hetalia is one of my favorite anime series. It's short, cute, funny and I think a series that pretty much anyone can enjoy! Would you give Hetalia: Axis Powers a shot?
