Hetalia: The Beautiful Makeover!

If you haven’t heard already, Hetalia got a new fifth season– Hetalia: The Beautiful World, and it’s coming to DVD this July! Not only is it a long-awaited new season with everyone’s favorite nation boys, but this time they’re back and better than ever.

 

 

If you’ve read the original Hetalia manga, you may notice that the character designs in The Beautiful World are a lot closer to mangaka Hidekaz Himaruya’s art style—lots of detail, bright colors, and intricately-rendered eyes and hair.

Even with the cosmetic changes, they’re still the same characters you know and love! Be sure to catch more of their historical hijinks in season 5 – Hetalia: the Beautiful World, available for pre-order now! The Limited Edition comes with an exclusive season 5 bandana, and both season 5 versions feature an adorable chibi sticker set.
