Hetalia World Stars is the continuation of Hetalia Axis Power manga by Hidekaz Himaruya. Shueisha has published four volumes of the manga now. And, the series has been well received in the manga community. The manga deals with a comparison of political and historical events among the nations. Characters are the personification of the countries, reinterpreting well-known events with some light-hearted comedy. The story starts getting more interesting as it gets more detailed.
