The apocalypse is nigh! The nations of Hetalia face their greatest crisis as alien invaders arrive to obliterate the world as we know it. A fleet armed with a homogenising beam is sweeping across the planet to wipe out identity, painting all its places and people as white a milk. It is up to the Hetalia heroes to unite against the faceless foe and protect the provenance of nationality!
Hetalia's original premise and indeed, much of its strength, comes from observational humour intertwined with real historical events. Both whimsical and witty, it doesn't pussyfoot around with political correctness. Each nation is equally prodded, poked and teased yet all this is done with ample affection. The characters may be flawed but not one of them is without charm.
