Your favorite anime about ridiculously good-looking countries come to life is returning later this year, and it looks like some familiar cast members are returning as well!
That’s right, it was just revealed that five members of the original Hetalia Japanese voice cast are coming back for the new series.
In addition to the return of Yuki Kaida (Hunter x Hunter, The Prince of Tennis) as the Narrator and China, the cast includes Daisuke Namikawa (Naruto, Black Clover) as Romano (South Italy); Go Inoue (My Hero Academia, Date A Live) as Bulgaria; Katsuyuki Konishi (Golden Kamuy, DECA-DENCE) as Canada and the United States; and Atsushi Kosaka (ALL OUT!!, Scar on the Praeter) as Greece and Estonia.
The upcoming Hetalia: World Stars, set to air this spring in Japan, is based on the manga of the same name from Hidekaz Himaruya. It’s a historical comedy that takes the many countries of the world and tells the story of the rise and decline of political power!
You can catch the 2009 series, Hetalia, right here on Funimation.
