frostings said: What do you think of Hetalia?

I’m not an anime person (though holla sailor moon mk) but I know a professor who finds it hilarious just because history (and making fun of germany and the coo-coo clocks)!!

I’d think it’d be problematic in the sense that it like simplifies things and is a very certain view (and that view being how Japan sees other countries/cultures?) of historical events? Eh?

anyone here love it? hate it? have no idea what it is?
