I can always count on Funimation to dub any Hetalia season.

Finally, I've been waiting for the dub to come out to watch this!

It seems most of the cast is the same (Todd Haberkorn is back as Italy Confused) but it looks like they recast England a second time, I wonder why that is.

Hopefully the specials are part of this as well, though I'm glad they're being released in batches of 4 episodes rather than 5 minutes a week

It's possible they wanted a performance more akin to He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named's original performance, since Taliesin Jaffe's version is incredibly different and he was probably only chosen for doing other roles with British accents.

I'm more curious on why they chose to recast Prussia. That's a pretty popular performance, and from what I can tell Jonathan Brooks is still pretty active with Funimation.

That's true, I always find World Twinkle's England jarringly different than you-know-who.

I didn't notice Prussia getting recast, that is weird.

When he was found with actually being a consumer/watcher of child pornography

Is he? I haven't heard him in anything since 2015.

The specials are probably part of this because Belgium is only in Ep.13, part of the specials.

If the subbed version is anything to go off, Muse has all three episodes on streaming.

I can’t believe we’ve reached the day where one of the Hetalia actors is using their natural accent for a character (Stephen Kelly as England).

Does anyone know who took over as Greece? I don't see his VA listed. I do know that I like how he sounds in this new season.
