In a time filled with wars, environmental concerns and issues, there lives a gaggle of beautiful boys that are the personification of the world's countries. Japan, England, France, Finland, Germany and the rest of the boys attend the World Conference and tackle issues like global warming with a heavy dose of fun. Through multiple world wars the gang will traverse deserts, build mecha U-boats and solve the world's problems together!
The year is After Colony 195, and mankind is in the midst of a seemingly endless ongoing war between the Space Colonies and the ones who created them: the people of Earth. To give the Colonies the advantage, five mobile suits called Gundams were created. Equipped with enhanced technology and extremely talented young pilots, these are the ultimate machines of war. While Relena Peacecraft pleads for peace, Heero Yui leads the Gundams into the battle with Earth to attain it. As their personalities and visions clash, their goal is the same: freedom for all and peace at last.
Both series revolve around boys from different countries/nationalities and their interactions during wartime. While Hetalia is far more of a comedy, it shares Gundam Wing's attention to its (wide range of diverse) characters, their personalities, and their interactions.
Higepiyo is just like any other chick; he's small, yellow, and... has a beard?! With an imposing presence and his constant sighing, it's not surprising that Higepiyo is the last chick left at the festival stand. Luckily for the now-depressed salesman, Hiroshi and his parents decide to buy Higepiyo for their own bizarre reasons. It's only when the family get him home that they realize just how weird this chick really is. From reading the newspaper to attacking the school bullies over a bread roll, Higepiyo is far from your average pet. Now Hiroshi and his parents must adapt to living with this food-crazed, talking chick - that is, if they can stop living in fear of their new pet! They just have to remember that while Higepiyo may not be cute, he may have a beard and he may ask for a second helping of curry, he's still a chick just the same!
Being both web shows of only 5 minutes [:'(], Hetalia and Higepiyo shows that even 5 minutes is enough to give top notch quality comedy to viewers and fans.
Hetalia skillfully posts a great deal of comedy while keeping the historic happening and facts intact.
Higepiyo demonstrates how it would be like if a chick got smart and sassy. This anime also shows how little things we overlook can be a big deal to anyone else.
In present day Japan, the life of a school girl is never dull. The easily-bored Konata never finds time to study because of her otaku habits, which frustrates hard-working Kagami to no end. On the other hand, laid-back Tsukasa always manages to go with the flow, while Miyuki is concerned with keeping her status as resident know-it-all. Join these four girls as they muse and meander their way through everyday events such as eating chocolate cones, doing homework, gaming, and trips to the beach galore.
Both are comedy/parody anime that are made up of short episodes. Hetalia parodies world history while Lychee DE Light Club parodies the manga it's (loosely) based on. Personally, I thought Hetalia was much better than Lychee, but if you like parody anime that has episodes that are 5 minutes long or less, then you might as well check out both.
It was a time of political instability. While most of Europe was involved with power struggles, the island country of Kuchen followed its own independent path; and with the leadership of an intelligent king and his advisors, the people worked to restore their kingdom. These advisors, with strong minds and good backgrounds, were graduates of a prestigious boarding school known as the Rozenstolz Academy. Follow the lives of the five students with the potential to become the king's next advisors (known as the Strahl candidates), as they strive to achieve their dreams.
With both shows' casts of highly attractive bishounen characters and a similar theme of European politics, I think that Hetalia and Meine Liebe are natural recs for each other. Hetalia is lighter and sillier, and ML is darker and much more serious, but I think fans would like both.
