I can't decide if this is the best or worst manga premise ever.

Surely this is a good thing. Instead of having to peruse through scores of anime, we can just go to a single source to get a fix of animated national stereotypes.

I love this manga...!

Though the description here is a bit off. Some (but few) of the countries are female, and Japan is not portrayed as an otaku.

I was about to mention exactly that: I somehow skipped 'prettyboy' when reading the title, and assumed that this was going to be an Afghanis-tan anime. I'm disappointed that it's not, but Hetalia Axis is hilarious anyway.

I was just thinking about Nazis as characters in the anime and manga the other day and this crops up. Yes! The announcement gives me an excuse to start reading it again because it's hilarious and at least somewhat more tasteful than the PS2 and PSP game Moe Moe Niji Taisen.

Just gag, no BL.
Though in that volume it's almost entirely male characters.

Ok, that's what I thought, thanks xD; I'll already look weird enough ordering a manga about axis powers, I don't want to be a BL/Axis powers pervert Laughing

Woot! I've been waiting for what seems like FOREVER for an anime adaption. Fall is gonna be awesome with this, and Kuroshitsuji. Anime hyper

Gag + (geographic) sterotyping= WIN. Laughing

Actually, I think there's an online version since it started off as a webcomic somewhere...?
