Hetalia The World Twinkle, the sixth anime season inspired by Hidekaz Himaruya's Hetalia manga, began streaming on the d Anime Store (Docomo Anime Store) and other services last month. Funimation is steaming the anime as it airs in Japan.
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.
