I have watched season 1-4 of this anime maybe 4 times in Japanese and 2 times in English.This is one of my favourite animes of all-time (Elfen Lied is my fav,watch it)!
This is a must watch for any anime fan or even anyone who just likes history!
I do think the first few episodes are a little boring but once you get past that you're golden.
There are 6 seasons and the 6th season is still ongoing and they don't have the 5th season of DVD here but if you want to watch all episodes of this go to thatanime.com and they have all the episodes there.
I will score this anime a........9000/10!!!

Italy is sooooo funny that I keep watching Hetalia. It gets very addicting after a wile and Italy's ending song is soooo good that you want to hear it over and over again!

Great to watch after learning some general grade 10 history. The more history you know about ww1 and ww2, the easier it is for you to follow along and understand inside jokes. I recommend the DUB for once! it has more accent, and its just more enjoyable all around, funimation did a great job.

It took me a while to get into because the first few episodes start off slow and aren't really funny. This might've been due to getting acquainted with the humor and watching the original dubs (if there is any difference between the japanese and english dubs that is). I think my favorite parts of the first season was the song Italy sings about Germany (I think) and this one liner from Japan towards the end on Germany educating Italy in the art of war. There's a lot to love about these characters, but it didn't have a lasting appeal for me. I was forcing myself to watch the first season, and when I took out the second, I didn't have the motivation to watch it. This is probably better in it's original comic form.

This is hilarious! You have to be rather open-minded though, as they play off of the general stereotypes of each country... Way better than any history class I ever took!

Incredibly funny show based off web comics by Himaruya Hidekaz in 2008. Plays on national stereotypes (though personally, I think Canada's is rather bland and he's missing a lot...no mention of hockey, no mention of our humour, no mounties, no health care, no igloo, though there IS a polar bear!)
I wouldn't suggest it for people who take their national image overly seriously though...they REALLY like to poke fun.
England rubs off as a jerk, France is a pervert, Germany is VERY serious, Italy is a weak ditz, Japan is overly polite (ignores his aggression in WWII, no surprise though), Russia wants everyone to "be one with him" (kolkolkol), and China thinks preparing food is more important than meetings, aru! Oh...then there's America...eating hamburgers and coming up with the most bizarre ideas (he's going to create a superhero to stop global warming apparently).
The show, overall, is a comedy.
