Daisuke Namikawa Sings New Hetalia Anime's Theme Song as Italy
posted on by Tiara Hamilton
The official Twitter account for the upcoming Hetalia series, Hetalia The World Twinkle, announced on Tuesday that Daisuke Namikawa will again play the role of Italy and sing the theme song in character. The rest of the staff and cast from Hetalia Beautiful World will also return.
Hetalia The World Twinkle will be the sixth anime season inspired by Hidekaz Himaruya's Hetalia manga. The manga takes the archetypal characteristics of countries and regions throughout the world, and anthropomorphizes them as (mostly) bishōnen characters.
The previous anime season, Hetalia The Beautiful World, premiered in Japan on January 2013. Funimation has released all the previous anime seasons and the Hetalia Axis Powers: Paint it, White! film in North America.
