Voice Cast Comments

Daisuke Namikawa (Italy)

“The Hetalia anime is back! This show has a roster of unique characters whose relationship is indescribable. And you won’t believe how they wind up this time around! Look forward to it, the Hetalia hype hurricane is back!”


Hiroki Yasumoto (Germany)

“I’m genuinely happy to be seeing these characters again. I’m sure you’re all excited too, but I feel like the cast are even more excited <laughs>. That’s how fun it is to record for this series. When we do it, we go all out. Simple and strong.”


Hiroki Takahashi (Japan)

“We’re back at it. I’m interested to see where they’ve ended up since then. I’m sure Japan is likely to be wavering in these times. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone again. It’s not long now, so please wait just a little longer. Ciao☆”


Noriaki Sugiyama (England)

“I felt really nostalgic and it made me happy to be recording for the Hetalia anime again. I think this series has helped people [in Japan] to learn about things around the world, not just in Japan, and helped them gain an interest in those things. I hope you get to watch it!”


Masaya Onosaka (France)

“France is still the same guy, he hasn’t changed one bit. It’s been lonely not getting to record with everyone because of the coronavirus. I’m recording on my own, but I hope I can bring some fun to my part. Please look forward to seeing the familiar face of France again!”

    Hetalia World Stars welcomes the new character Luxembourg. Like Netherlands and Belgium, he is a gentle soul who’s also shy. He’s also a workaholic, not knowing when to stop.


    Comments from the Voice Cast

    Luxembourg (Taku Yashiro)

    “I play Luxembourg in the new Hetalia anime series. I’m so happy to be playing a character in a series loved by so many people. He’s someone who has a lot of different facial expressions, so be sure to check him out.”


     Netherlands (Nobuya Mine)

    “Hetalia is getting another anime series! It’s been a while, Spain! I’m so happy to see you again! What kind of world will he show his brothers and sisters? Please look forward to it!”


    Belgium (Eriko Nakamura)

    “I’m personally over the moon that I get to be with the calm and gentle Belgium once again! You might get a peek at her being a little bit more straightforward and honest this time, and you might even feel just a little bit sorry for her. Either way, she’s cute, and cuteness is justice! Please look forward to seeing her along with all the other characters.”
