New episodes to launch on web, mobile phones in March 2010

A third season of the anime adaptation of Hidekaz Himaruya's Hetalia - Axis Powers comedy web manga has been green-lit for production. Like the first two seasons, it will run on the Animate.tv computer website and on the Japanese mobile phone site Mobile Animate starting in March of 2010. More details will be provided on the official Hetalia.com homepage, in Gentosha's Monthly Comic Birz magazine, and through other sources.

The "cynical gag" manga and anime take the archetypal characteristics of about 20 countries and regions, and anthropomorphize them as (mostly) bishōnen characters. The story re-imagines various historical eras including World War I and II. A theatrical film was previously announced for an early summer 2010 opening in Japan.

The first hall event for the franchise, the tentatively titled Marukaite Kanshasai, will be also held on March 7. The castmembers Daisuke Namikawa (Italy/South Italy), Hiroki Yasumoto (Germany), Hiroki Takahashi (Japan), Aki Kanada (Chibitalia), and Atsushi Kousaka (Estonia/Prussia) are scheduled to attend. The event is planned to have a video screening, a discussion section, and various other parts.

Well, it's a good thing we're playing 2 episodes every week of this in 2010, because this show is really good :D

It sells 20k+ per volume on DVD in Japan for a reason. ;)
