Germany never expected that the descendant of Ancient Rome would become his ally in the war. After meeting North Italy, Germany is stunned that the once powerful empire is now just a useless crybaby with a concerningly deep love for pasta. To make matters worse, his only other ally, Japan, is near-impossible to read and has equally strange interests. While Germany grapples with his eccentric partners, the Allies are knocking at their door, looking for a fight. Using personified nations and humor, Hetalia Axis Powers recounts the events of World Wars I and II in a comedic light. Along the way, the relationship between nations and cultural anecdotes are explored in a quirky and fun manner.
