Note: I know I'm a nerd, but who cares. I've reviewed Hetalia Season One and Paint it, White. Now is the time for the long awaited Hetalia: World Series - Season 3!
Also, I watched most of it on youtube, so I don't want to hear people complaining and ranting about reviewing a product that hasn't been released yet. It's called internet, idiots.

Anyway, World series will be my favorite because the cast brought in Spain, Hong Kong(can't wait to hear his voice) more Prussia, the Nordics (Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway and Iceland), more Prussia, and more awesomeness to the Hetalia world. Even though I watched almost all of the episodes, I'm actually just eager to hear Sweden call Finland his wife in the English version, if I don't hear that or if they change the script, I'm gonna cry!XD

Basically, Prussia takes over the entire show(Hungary will get him, trust me. Don't mess with her man!), you'll be seeing some episodes with Spain trying his hardest to take care of rude/cute Romano,and others(like America dragging England's car up a hill for an hour just to ask him for the keys. LOL! Those are the only things I'm gonna spoil, but the rest you'll find out on your own.

Like I said in season one of Hetalia, if you're the type that doesn't like to laugh at yourself because of some old/new stereotypes, don't look at it and complain about it, but if you're the type that doesn't care and still laughs at it because some is true and some is false, than this is this is the show for you.

Hetalia fans shall rejoice at this season!XD
Vee-Meow!

We had to wait a while for season 3 to come out in English and the dub doesn't disappoint. I would joke that the dub intentionally makes more innuendoes then necessary but I still find them hilarious.

The season focuses on Germany, Spain and Prussia according to the cover but I think Japan, England and America get their fair amount of screen time as well. Ironically, despite being the main character, Italy is kind of pushed back in this season in favor of the characters mentioned above. Like season 2, season 3 jumps all over the timeline as well but this time it's more justified given the title of season 3 is World Series (and not Axis Power). I would joke that this season has the "most action" in the series but that title still goes to the Hetalia Paint it White movie of having 8 minutes of action sequence. We see Hungary fight (or kick the Prussian armies ass) single handily and we also get an attempted battle by Spain vs. Turkey (doesn't go anywhere sadly but this side of Spain is cool).

The main timelines are the 17th century, and the 12-15th (again I'm not sure what timeline Spain has a lot of power but it might be around the 17th century as well), and the modern era. There is only one serious episode if you consider that episode serious (you're no by how the music stops and how the colors get all dark and it's an America episode so...)

I find this season more hilarious in the dub given how Spain curses a lot in Spanish (calling Austria a "Puta" is so OOC for him but funny given the situation). Again like I say with the other Hetalia season DVDs, pick it up because it's cheap and easy to get into and at this point, you should know who the characters are (my dad has at this point).

Gave this as a gift to 2 big fans of Hetalia. They are both 13 years old, one boy and one girl, and both have watched probably every episode of this anime series. Their word for this DVD: Awesome.

The extra couple of bucks for the limited edition is worth it, especially if you are a fan of Prussia. The purple Prussia bandanna is adult sized, durable and of course, awesome.

The commentaries are a blast to listen too. Personally, I loved the 'revolutionary brothers' commentary the best. Eric Vale is a blast to listen to. However, listening to the voice actors for Prussia and Romano in the first one is priceless.

Th English cast is wonderful, although I am still getting used to Poland's English voice. It's very good, just not what I was expecting.
And yes, you will get to hear Sweden call Denmark(I hope I got that right) his wife in English.

The episodes are fantastic in quality and seeing more characters adds to the fun. And you will laugh as Hungary demands Prussia give back Austria's happy place. Yes, happy place.

Well worth the buy, honestly, especially given it's re-watch value. It's hard to view these episodes just once.

Hetalia has been the best anime I have ever seen. The characters all have their own unique personalities and desires which make them likeable to nearly everyone who watches this show. I'm glad Funimation decided to dub this season and I hope everyone who orders this DVD enjoys it. :)

Alright let's get this out of the way and then I'll get to the actual review: Funimation needs to crack down on people whom post clips or episodes from this or any series so that this way people don't get funny parts spoiled by users. Its just a bit of an annoyance rather than a convenience in my opinion

Now that I got that out of the way onto the actual review...

This DVD covers the first 24 episodes of the series so, for those that enjoyed "The War of Austrian Succession" like me, you'll be pleased to know that its on this disc along with the episode when my favorite Austrian aristocrat was forced to stay with Germany and trust me when I call that the beginning of the "Austrian blackmail" scenario :)

Speaking of Austria his role is once again voiced by Mr. Chuck Huber and once again the ending for the first couple of episode of "World Series" is "Marukaite Chikyuu" (incidentally during this writing I'm listening to Austria's version). It isn't until they get to about say episode 10 (maybe a little earlier) that they change over to the actual theme for "World Series" which is "Hata futte parade!" (and if that's misspelled I apologize) which I actually kind of like better. It should be noted by the way that when they do the Marukaite Chikyuu they only did a few of the of the Axis and Allies before the changeover. It kind of makes you wonder why, for the world series they didn't use some of the other countries versions but oh well.
