The North American anime distributor Funimation premiered the English dub of the Hetalia Axis Powers: Paint it, White! (銀幕ヘタリア -白くぬれ!) film at the Anime Weekend Atlanta convention last weekend, held from September 30 to October 2.
The Hetalia anime series (adapted from the webcomic of the same title by Hidekaz Himaruya) is a satirical comedy that centers on main historical events between World War I and World War II and features characters personified after Axis Powers and Allies (Italy, Germany, Japan, America, England, France, Russia, and China). The film's plot involves the nations dealing with a mysterious force (causing all sorts of incidents to take place on Earth), as well as a group of aliens (PICT) trying to destroy the entire human race.
It was also announced that the English DVD of the film would be released this November 22. As a bonus with the release, each copy will also include a green bandana.
