English Lyrics
Wei, wei, baba[1], lao jiu[2] please, aru!

Wei, wei, mama, wei, wei mama,
I can't forget the taste
Of the chao fan[3] I had before, aru!

Draw a circle, there's the earth
Draw a circle, there's the earth
Draw a circle, there's the earth
I am China, aru

Draw a circle, there's the earth
Look closely, that's the earth
Or is it really the earth?
Am I China, aru?

Ah, this wonderful world
Can be seen by a single swipe of paintbrush
Crimson red
Is the symbol of luck, aru

"Make green tea with warm water, make red tea with hot water, that's the way to do it!"

Draw a circle, there's the earth
Draw a circle, there's the earth
Draw a circle, there's the earth
I am China, aru

Draw a circle, there's the earth
Suddenly! There was the earth
Hold your head up high, earth!
I am China, aru

Chinese hot pot is the recipe of happiness
That would makes you cry happy tears
"Strong fire is good"
If we wake up early,
Let's do tai chi in the park!

Wei, wei, gege[4], bai jiu[5] please, aru?
And can you pour that for me, jiejie[6]?
Ni hao, yeye[7], peace is best!
Ai, xiao baobao[8], "Pass the dish around, aru"
Wei, wei, baba, jiaozi[9] as well please, aru
Wei, wei, mama, wei, wei, mama
I can't forget the taste
Of the chao fan[10] I had before, aru!
The empress was in love with Peking opera

Draw a circle, there's the earth
Draw a circle, there's the earth
Draw a circle, there's the earth
I am China, aru

Ah, this wonderful world
Can be seen by a single swipe of paintbrush
The recipe we got at the restaurant
Is actually a lottery!

Ah, the recipe of happiness
Is sleeping in the centre of the earth
Let's come around, and together, everyone sing,

Plot Summary

Iceland, who has been trying to get more tourists to help out his economy, notices a strange green mist in the atmosphere. Elsewhere, a woman is being chased through the streets by a mass of strange white blob-like aliens, who capture her and change her into one of their own.

At the world meeting, the World 8 (consisting of the former members of the Axis Powers and Allied Forces) try to figure out a way to solve the situation, but wind up only arguing with each other and causing Germany to call the meeting off. Italy is left alone, unaware that Canada had also attended the meeting and is there with him.

Prussia holds a talent show, though it is quickly called off due to the threat. Belarus and Ukraine attempt to search for their brother in the middle of the chaos. Although the nations attempt to ward off the aliens in their own ways, the blob aliens manage to succeed in draining the color of various cities and transforming them and the people into white blobs. South Italy stands in the middle of a converted city, only to be quickly transformed into one of the aliens. Poland finds that his pony has transformed, but becomes attacked and converted as well. Finland, dressed as a Santa, wonders when Christmas will come, but winds up converted. Finally, a tired Greece is sitting out in archaeological ruins with his cats, and becomes converted. However, Switzerland and Liechtenstein are unaffected by the attacks due to their barrier of "permanent neutrality" and manage to evade the disaster when the barrier repels the UFOs.

Though Tony is first suspected of being the cause, the World 8 discover that the aliens (known as the Pict) originated from a dying white star and have come to Earth looking for things to drain color and happiness from and to turn others into their race. A commercial break featuring Spain appears briefly, to advertise his coffee and "Shut up" shirt. Before Tony can explain things further, the Pict convert him into a blob creature, leaving the World 8 to have to figure out a solution on their own. Elsewhere, Canada and Cuba attempt to help out humans that have been halfway converted into Pict.

The eight nations then discover a spaceship and attempt to sneak on board amidst the converted Earth population, Italy suggesting that they disguise themselves as Pict (in baggy white unitards). America declares that he'll be the one to lead them, but this idea is shot down by Germany, who orders them to split up. France and England are forced to pair up, but wind up becoming caught quickly due to their arguments, especially after seeing what the Pict think of their relationship. America, Russia, and China find a control room, but wind up triggering an alarm and become ambushed by the aliens. Germany, Italy, and Japan attempt to sneak through the air vents in the spaceship, but a cat that Italy brought along in his suit attacks Germany and the three fall through the vent and fail as well. Back in Europe, Switzerland and Liechtenstein calm themselves by holding a picnic.

In an attempt to ward the Pict off and bring them happiness, Japan suggests that the nations show them hospitality. The nations decides to showcase their special talents:

  • China and France show the aliens their food (which the Pict only find "odd")
  • Russia shows them the art of ballet, having dressed the Baltic Trio up as ballerinas (but the Pict only find it "odd")
  • Germany gives the Pict beer, but winds up demonstrating it too stiffly
  • America offers the Pict gambling and they seem to approve of it, though they find it "odd" as well
  • Japan demonstrates the Bon festival, which the Pict also seem to approve of (despite saying that it is "odd")

England then decides to give the Pict souvenirs, when Japan asks what is in them they are all grow nervous to hear he has put scones, but they become disgusted by the taste and attack the nations. The eight bail from the ship and wind up falling into a vast ocean. Elsewhere, Austria complains to Hungary about the type of music he has to compose.

Germany finds himself lost in a jungle on a deserted island, having washed up on a beach. He wonders if the other seven are alright, but a faint light catches his eye. He finds Italy by a campfire, and the World 8 manage to reunite. Sealand then appears, having engineered his entire platform to move across the ocean. He thinks to himself that he'll be able to use this opportunity to get the others to acknowledge him. Back in Europe, Switzerland and Liechtenstein continue to have peace.

The World 8 eat by the campfire and try to figure out a strategy to defeat the Pict, but are quickly discovered by them. Sealand tries to fight off the Pict with cannons on his platform, though they overtake him and transform him. The Pict show the nations the transformed landmarks of the world in an attempt to depress them further. Germany tries to get Italy to smile, as his smiling had made the Picts hesitate earlier, though Italy finds himself too scared to do so. In a brief interlude, Holy Roman Empire and Chibitalia are shown by a river, repeating each others' names over and over.

The World 8 then decide to fight off the Pict (with the exception of Italy, who runs away to hide in some bushes) and become engaged in a very physical battle. The nations become overwhelmed by the Pict though, and China is the first to fall and become transformed. One by one, the nations are transformed into Pict (although still retaining other physical features such as hair), until Germany is left fighting. He too eventually gets transformed, however, leaving Italy as the survivor and frightened at being the last one.

Suddenly, as the Pict corner Italy, Ancient Rome rises from the sea, decked out in visual kei makeup, to sing a song (previously heard in Episode 18) about "Heaven and Hell on Earth", using the transformed landmarks of the world as his stage backdrops. The Pict become baffled by the bizarre event, giving Italy his chance to "attack" them in his own way: Having found a felt-tip marker that was dropped by his grandpa, he proceeds to draw strange faces all over the Pict and his transformed allies, causing them to laugh and find happiness.

The happiness of the Pict cause the transformed nations on the island to revert to their human forms, and a strange faceless girl known as the Pict Princess appears to apologize for the destruction caused. She asks for Italy's marker (as such an object never existed in her world to create laughter) and thanks the group for showing her the meaning of happiness. The Pict Princess departs with her race in the spaceship, assuring the nations that she'll return the Earth to normal. The landmarks proceed to vanish. Meanwhile back in Europe, Liechtenstein thanks Switzerland for the wonderful time that they managed to have.

The next morning, the World 8 wonder how they'll be able to leave the island and blame each other for being stuck. Sealand decides that he'll give the others a ride home, figuring that they'll recognize him this way. Japan then suggests that they all simply do Bon dancing. A footnote reads that they returned home by using the route that China uses for food.

Ending Sequence

Theatrical Version

Wa! Wa! World Ondo plays as a group of Pict aliens dance. "Chibi" heads of various characters float in the background and clips from the movie play on a screen. In the final shot, a chibi version of Italy poses with his two white flags.

DVD Version

The Pict aliens dance to Wa! Wa! World Ondo. In the background, various nations and other characters (including Janice) do the dance movements at different points and scenes in the film. In the final shot, the nations that appeared in the film all appear in kimonos and in chibi form, along with Tony, one of Greece's cats, Poland's pony (on which Holy Roman Empire and Chibitalia are seated), and Kumajirou.

Post-Credits Teaser

Iceland has managed to get several tourists and wonders why everyone else in the world was despairing over the chaos, as the strange aurora that appeared made his house into a big tourist destination. The chorus of children states that it's "The End".

  • Though Prussia appeared in several early promotional materials for the film and was hyped as the Ambassador character for it, he only appears briefly in one scene early on and presumably winds up attacked and transformed by the Pict like most of the other nations.
  • Curiously, the woman at the very beginning of the film first running from the Pict seems to greatly resemble a female America, from the short bangs, the same hair and eye color, and an ahoge in a similar place. It seems this was merely coincidence, however, as her hair is much longer, style of dress is different, and her portion was shown to take place in Germany.
  • At least 70 percent of the movie is the actual original story involving the Pict, while the other 30 percent of the runtime consists of the recaps of the anime series spliced inbetween various scenes. This move proved to be controversial due to the recycling of footage and the discrepancies between the animation quality, along with the recycling of the island setting for the film's climax. As a result, two versions of the film are included on the DVD, a "Complete" version that retains the recaps, and a "Skip Play" version that only showcases the movie footage.
  • The ending credits sequence was also slightly changed in the DVD release, though the original ending is still available in the special features.


Hetalia: Axis Powers (anime)

Hetalia: Axis Powers is the anime adaptation of Hidekaz Himaruya's manga, which premiered on Animate.TV on January 24th, 2009. Directed by Bob Shirohata, the series is scheduled to run for 76 episodes. It is animated by Studio DEEN. In July 2010, the series made its television debut on Japan's BS11, airing at 23:30.

Most of the storyline takes place between the 2 World Wars, however there are segments taking place in earlier times and the modern day as well. The anime is adapted from the published version of the manga, rather than the original webcomic, so early events like the forming of the Axis Powers have been condensed, though some storylines from both versions of the story have been trimmed or left out completely.

Although originally planned for 26 episodes, it was announced on April 15th, 2009, that the series had been renewed for a second order of 26 episodes, bringing the episode count up to 52. The second season of Hetalia began airing on Animate.TV's mobile phone service on July 24th, 2009, with its webcast following three days later. A third season was later announced on December 10th, 2009, but was later rebranded with the title Hetalia: World Series. It premiered in March 2010.

Though FUNimation Entertainment reportedly had originally passed up the license for the anime in early 2009, the title "Hetalia: Axis Powers" later appeared on a poll of possible titles on their blog. On January 8th, 2010, FUNimation announced that they had licensed the first two seasons of the series.


Main article: List of Hetalia: Axis Powers characters


Main Article: List of Hetalia: Axis Powers episodes

Both of the first two seasons span 26 episodes, with the first mostly adapting from Hetalia: Axis Powers volume 1, though some arcs and strips are sequenced out of order from their original placement. A few "Extra Stories" and "Comic Diaries" from the webcomic were also adapted into segments, as well as minor portions of chapters from the webcomic's main storyline. The third and fourth seasons (treated as a new series by DEEN) marked a change in both the title and episode count, with each consisting of 24 episodes.

Most of the episodes had no titles when broadcast, unless they were shown in a next episode preview with a title listed, as was the case with the fifth and seventeenth episodes of season 1.

The anime is notable for the fact that its episodes are extremely short, with each running approximately 5 minutes in their broadcasts.

The first season of the anime series spawned eight image song CDs, each one for a member of the Axis Powers or Allied Forces. Each CD contained two songs and a mini-drama CD segment. A full-length single version of the first ending theme, Marukaite Chikyuu (English title: The Rotating Earth) was released on March 25th, 2009. The single to the second ending theme, Hatafutte Parade (Flag-Waving Parade) was released on June 23rd, 2010.

An additional character song, entitled Ren・Ren・Renaissance♪, was released with a guide to the character songs. It is sung by Hozumi Gōda and Aki Kanada (as Grandpa Rome and Chibitalia).

Interval Drama CD

Shortly after the announcement of season 2, the character CDs for UK through China were pushed back, in part due to an "interval" character drama CD being announced for the series:

Hetalia: Sound World

This soundtrack contained most of the background music that was played in both seasons for Hetalia: Axis Powers. There was also a bonus track containing a song sung by the Axis Powers (Italy, Germany, and Japan) singing to Santa Claus is Coming to Town. This soundtrack was released on November 25, 2009.

Hetalia World Series: Sound World

This soundtrack was released on November 24, 2010.

Related Materials

Storyboard Guides have been released in conjunction with the anime, detailing the storyboard sketches that were used in production:

  • Hetalia Axis Powers: Storyboard Guide Vol.1 (Season 1, episodes 1-13)
  • Hetalia Axis Powers: Storyboard Guide Vol.2 (Season 1, episodes 14-26)
  • Hetalia Axis Powers: Storyboard Guide Vol.3 (Season 2, episodes 27-39)
  • Hetalia Axis Powers: Storyboard Guide Vol.4 (Season 2, episodes 40-52)

The third is notable for also containing storyboards to scenes that were scripted but unused in the second season of the anime, including one involving Sweden that would have been in Episode 33.

A guide to the first season of the anime, Hetalia Fanbook: World Wide Walking, was also released. It would be later followed by another official guide to the anime, released in April 2010.

A Character CD Guide also exists for the series, detailing the production stories behind the making of the character songs of the Axis and Allies.

Sheep-Counting CDs

Another wave of CD-related merchandise hit in 2010, though unrelated to the character CDs and soundtracks. Manufactured by Honeybee, the Hetalia x Goodnight with Sheep Series is a series of CDs designed to help people fall asleep by having the voice actors for the characters count off the numbers of sheep.

Theatrical Film

Main article: Hetalia: Axis Powers: Paint it, White

A theatrical adaptation of the series was announced on September 24th, 2009. The film remained shrouded in secrecy, though its full title was eventually revealed to be Hetalia - Axis Powers on the Silver Screen: Paint it, White. It was released on June 5th, 2010. It marks the first animated debut of Iceland.

A promotional single for the film was also released in conjunction with it, entitled Mein Gott!!. It is sung by Atsushi Kousaka, the voice actor for Prussia (who plays a minor part in the film, though used for advertisements and merchandise pertaining to it).

The original soundtrack to the film (Silver Screen Hetalia: Sound World) was released on June 9th. It also includes the theme song for the film (Wa! Wa!! World Ondo), sung by the voice actors of the Axis and Allies under the name World 8.


The anime was originally slated to broadcast on Kids Station on January 24th, but the television airing was cancelled due to "various circumstances". It is believed that the South Korean protests of the series (and reported death threats to the TV station) played a part in the cancellation. The protests arose when an online petition was created to ban the series, due to complaints that the South Korean character was an offensive stereotype. The South Korean government proceeded to declare the series a "national crime", though Kids Station responded that there was no Korean character in the series.

A preliminary character design of South Korea, however, was shown in the early promotional images for the series, suggesting that at one point, he was slated to be included. South Korea could also be seen in the first ending sequence, among the other characters on top of the world. But with the switch in ending themes, his character was immediately removed from the globe.
