Editor's NoteThis set from the politically astute anime series HETALIA AXIS POWERS includes all 24 episodes of the show's third season, presenting each of the major powers in the world as characters on a reality show - from the shy Japanese guy, to the passionate Italian. Each character both satirizes stereotypes about their home country, and challenges preconceived notions about nationhood and politics.
Customer Reviews of Hetalia-World Series 1
The extra couple of bucks for the limited edition is worth it, especially if you are a fan of Prussia. The purple Prussia bandanna is adult sized, durable and of course, awesome. The commentaries are a blast to listen too. Personally, I loved the 'revolutionary brothers' commentary the best. Eric Vale is a blast to listen to. However, listening to the voice actors for Prussia and Romano in the first one is priceless. Th English cast is wonderful, although I am still getting used to Poland's English voice. It's very good, just not what I was expecting. And yes, you will get to hear Sweden call Denmark(I hope I got that right) his wife in English. The episodes are fantastic in quality and seeing more characters adds to the fun. And you will laugh as Hungary demands Prussia give back Austria's happy place. Yes, happy place. Well worth the buy, honestly, especially given it's re-watch value. It's hard to view these episodes just once.
We had to wait a while for season 3 to come out in English and the dub doesn't disappoint. I would joke that the dub intentionally makes more innuendoes then necessary but I still find them hilarious. The season focuses on Germany, Spain and Prussia according to the cover but I think Japan, England and America get their fair amount of screen time as well. Ironically, despite being the main character, Italy is kind of pushed back in this season in favor of the characters mentioned above. Like season 2, season 3 jumps all over the timeline as well but this time it's more justified given the title of season 3 is World Series (and not Axis Power). I would joke that this season has the "most action" in the series but that title still goes to the Hetalia Paint it White movie of having 8 minutes of action sequence. We see Hungary fight (or kick the Prussian armies ass) single handily and we also get an attempted battle by Spain vs. Turkey (doesn't go anywhere sadly but this side of Spain is cool). The main timelines are the 17th century, and the 12-15th (again I'm not sure what timeline Spain has a lot of power but it might be around the 17th century as well), and the modern era. There is only one serious episode if you consider that episode serious (you're no by how the music stops and how the colors get all dark and it's an America episode so...) I find this season more hilarious in the dub given how Spain curses a lot in Spanish (calling Austria a "Puta" is so OOC for him but funny given the situation).
