Thanks. I'm glad I liked it too.

I was a little worried about how they'd end it but it was alright. Now I'm curious about LotGH: Gaiden, though.

I'll poke at that with a stick later to see if it's just as good, but I'll probably finish Monster first.

Saki. It was alright.

Disliked the yuri-vibes, though.

SAO. Such an awesome show. I've always loved dual wielding characters and Kirito fulfilled that. Just wish he kept going on with it in the second story arc.

Name of Anime Hetalia: Axis Powers, Hetalia: World Series, and Hetalia Beautiful World Series


Comment/Review Hetalia is a comedy, history series where each episode is only 5 minutes in length. So far, it has four seasons (Axis Powers and World Series) and is currently working on their fifth season called Hetalia: Beautiful World Series.

Story/Setting The story basically revolves around personified countries and takes the viewer through world history in a very comical, humorous and stereotypical manner. The story is pretty brief and only centers around events in history such as WWI and WWII, otherwise, there is no other distinct plot involved. I did find the story original, however, because I personally haven't seen any other anime that reviews world history or personifies the countries. I wouldn't say that you could ace a history test at school if you watch this show though. You would just be better off reading your history textbook

Characters Every character was likable and I didn't find a single character I didn't like. However, since each character represents a country and that country's stereotypes, people who take stereotypes seriously or take offense easily should not watch this series since the point of the series is to make fun of stereotypes while teaching some history as well. One of my favorite parts about the series was the English dub, which is the only version I will watch of Hetalia, because in the English dub each character has the accent of the country that he or she represents. I thought that was a nice touch and it's one of my favorite things about the series!!! My favorite character by far is Italy!!! He is just so darn adorable!!! <3 <3 <3

Animation/Art The animation was pretty average for the most part. There wasn't much that stood out to me. However the animation for the fifth season, Beautiful World Series, has increased in quality drastically and it looks beautiful!!!.......No pun intended The art on the other hand was pretty unusual. I found a lot of the characters to be cute and adorable in their design, but my problem with the art was how so many of the characters look alike. I know why they do because of how countries originated from others so their genetics make them look similar and such, but it still bothered me just a little bit Just on a side note, I liked the curly strands of hair that poked out on a few of the characters!!! <3

Music Music was just average, though I did find the endings theme catchy and cute and I liked how they gave each country their own version of the endings. The background music was average and the opening was average and simple as well. The only songs I liked were the endings to all five seasons.

Overall I enjoyed this series a lot. It has actually become one of my favorite series of all time since I don't take the stereotypes seriously. It's all good fun and for a good laugh and shouldn't be taken seriously...but that's just me of course :sweatingbullets:

Rating Because this show may be offensive to certain people, I have to sadly give this one a lower score than I would like to. 8/10

Recommended I would only recommend this series to those who don't take stereotypes and making fun of them seriously.

Comment: I found it to be alright. In a way, like many romantic comedies, it can be an exercise in frustration though. I've watched quite a few shows in this genre lately and this one was probably one of the more frustrating. By frustrating, I mean you wish the characters would do things differently. This is a show that definitely stretches out the character's "pre-confession" relationship. While this can be good in a sense, here it just seemed almost like the show creators are trolling the viewers until the very end. ;)

The female lead while likable, is socially awkward in the extreme and is naive to a fault, and while she does have some fair character progression over the course of the show, there are many times where you just can't believe what she is thinking or doing. The male lead is a tad more confident but is just as dense when it comes to their relationship. Granted to some people though, that is the best thing about these kinds of shows. The ending was fairly satisfying, which for me, made up for the couple dozen plus episodes of awkwardness.

Final thing, the art. While I loved the "normal" versions of the characters, I did not care for the rounded/childish versions that were used in some scenes. Reminded me of Haru from Accel World.

Rating: Was a decent watch, but I don't think it's as good as some other Rom-coms. 7/10

Recommend: It is recommended but I would recommend other shows before this one to a new comer to anime or the romantic comedy/drama genre.

Afro Samurai
Comment/Review: This show, as short as it is, is a great. When i say "great" I'm not talking best anime ever great. This show was great in the sense that its pure, mindless fun to watch. You can just sit back and enjoy an episode. Although, it IS just mindless fun and not much else, and that hurts the review score.
Rating:6/10
Recommend: Yes. It can be streamed off of netflix or bought for about 8 dollars off of rightstuf.
