Hetalia Axis Powers was an important series for anyone growing up in the early 2000s, as it featured anthropomorphized versions of countries, drawn as handsome Anime men. It spawned many fan works, becoming a formative part of a large chunk of the generation’s first foray into Anime.
The World Stars anime is based on the manga of the same name, which is due to resume again after its hiatus in 2018 this Winter.
