For example, the character depicting Italy is cowardly and eats pasta continually, with the United States depicted as obnoxious and hamburger eating. The interactions of the characters reflect the relationships between the countries during historical events; in the later of the five seasons historical events across larger stretches of the 20th century are depicted. An animated series has been produced depicting the events of the web comic and manga series of Hetalia: Axis Powers. The first season took the form of 26 five minute episodes directed by Bob Shirahata originally commissioned by the Japanese Kids Station network.

A full length movie called Paint It, White! Was completed in 2010 and distributed in the U.S. and Canada by Funimation.
