The first installment of the next phase of this franchise is set for release on January 17th, 2012 with Hetalia: World Series Part 1 and if that’s not a sign of impending doom in 2012, I’m not sure what is. FUNimation is getting the ball rolling in getting people to talk about it with a new trailer that lets the dub cast shine once again with numerous characters, quirky moments and… awkward humor to say the least as the show goes truly international here. Check it out below.
Plot concept: The awesome international incidents never stop in Hetalia World Series! All your fave Allied and Axis boys are back, and they’ve brought a bunch of new guys to the party. You like to party, right? Duh.
Feel the tension build as Prussia plots an invasion of Austria’s happy little place. Try on a codpiece! Share in Spain’s pain as he does his best to look after little Romano. Run with stampeding kittens! Swoon at the awkward new bromance blossoming between Japan and Greece. Eat a yummy churro! Listen and learn as France teaches Italy about the birds and the bees. Avoid Sealand! Cheer as America befriends space aliens and whales. Truly, no matter whose flag you fly, it’s about to get all SQUEE up in here. Like, big time.
