Hey there, dudes and dudettes! Do you love Hetalia as much as we do?! Do you love the sparkly, beautiful world where countries are anthropomorphized into hot guys and girls? Ok, well prove it!
To celebrate the upcoming release of Hetalia: the Beautiful World, we’re asking fans to show their love for Hetalia by “beautifying their world” with their creativity. We want to see fanart, crafts, cosplay pics, video skits, fan games, anything that you can think of that relates to Hetalia–the sky’s the limit! Brownie points if you incorporate Season 5 elements into your creations (e.g. the mochis, Nyotalia, etc).
Of course, if you’re one of those who think the pen is mightier than the sword, you can also write an essay (max of 100 words) about why you’re excited for Hetalia: the Beautiful World, and how you kept Hetalia in your life after Season 4. Comment below, comment on Facebook, or Tweet us on Twitter. Keep in mind if you tweet us your response must fit within 1 tweet. By submitting an entry, you give us permission to share it on our social media channels.
