The Axis Powers consists of the main protagonists Italy, Germany, and Japan while the Allied Forces have America, England, France, China, and Russia. The main historical events portrayed in Hetalia occur between World War I and World War II. However, the series uses satire and comedy to address well-known historical events as well as historical and cultural trivia.
Not a fan of history when I was still studying, which probably explains why I know so little about this series. So thanks again to Yukino for sending me a lot of Hetalia cosplays to feature on Cosplay Holic!
