Psst… this isn’t fan art. It’s official art by Himaruya that he posted on his blog.

The part that’s hilarious: that last image is actually historically accurate. Washington was well aware that he was going to be judged by history and destroyed the majority of his correspondence. All we have left - with the exception of two letters - was carefully chosen to make him look as amazing as possible.

Okay so I’m pretty sure Hetalia season 5 (aka The Beautiful Wold) is in english dub now, but I literally can’t find it anywhere. Does anyone know anywhere that I can watch it in dubbed?
The season five DVDs have been available since July 22. If possible, please buy the DVD. I can’t stress this enough. The DVDs are coded for regions 1, 2, and 4, so if you live in one of those countries or own a region-free DVD player, you’re good to go.
I’m serious about buying it, by the way. This is how dub companies make money. This is how the dub actors make their wages. And don’t forget that some of that money goes back to Studio Deen and Himaruya. If you want these companies to know that you like Hetalia, you need to buy this stuff, not just pirate it online.
That being said, if you are unable to purchase the DVDs for whatever reason (like being dead broke, ‘cause I sure as hell know what that’s like), someone has uploaded the dub here on YouTube.

10 September 1989 - Hungary allows East German refugees to leave toward West Germany through Austria.
OKAY so this is a really cool event and one of the first chain of events that would lead to the collapse of the Berlin Wall two months later.
So here’s the setup: It’s 1989 in East Germany and shit sucks. People want out, but they can’t, because their government has guns and is not afraid to shoot people who try to get out.
It’s also 1989 in Hungary, and shit also sucks. HOWEVER, Hungary is feeling like being a rebellious little asshole. See, they share their border with Austria, a place where it’s 1989 and shit does not necessarily suck. And here’s a goddamn map to make my life easier:
Now, generally, anyone who lived in an orange country on that map could travel to any other orange country, but they could NOT travel to any white or green country.
Well one day, Hungary decided, “fuck you, we’re going to go to a white country,” and that white country was Austria. So they tore down their border fence with Austria.
The Soviet Union, already fucking waist-deep in their own issues, was pissed but couldn’t *really* do anything about it.
At the same time, West Germany had a pretty sweet deal with East Germans - if y’all can get over here, you will be granted West German citizenship and a government stipend to get you going and legally soaking up that sweet, sweet capitalism.
Well this was pretty fucking tempting for East Germans who hated being East German. The only issue - how the fuck do we get to West Germany without getting shot and/or maimed?
Well, the day that Hungary tore down its border gate and Hungarians flooded into Austria in hopes of a better life, East Germans got the same idea. If they could get in their shitty Trabants, or ride the shitty trains, or fucking walk if they had to, down to Hungary, from Hungary into Austria, and through Austria into West Germany - they could be home free. It was a long journey, especially when you are driving a car made out of lint, but it was worth it.
So thousands of East Germans told their bosses and government that they were suddenly on “holiday” to Hungary - and simply never returned.
There was a problem. In the past, Hungary wouldn’t simply “let” anyone pass through their boarders - indeed, they never let East Germans through into Austria before, so why now?
Well /now/ there were approximately 8,000 East Germans who had landed in Hungary and were dedicated to never returning - and more growing each day, from other countries such as Poland and Czechoslovakia. The government couldn’t force all these people to leave, and the Minister of Foreign Affairs declared that Hungary could not “become a nation of refugee camps.”
"Ugh it’s SO STRESSFUL BEING THE HARBINGERS OF FREEDOM."
So, on 10 September 1989, Hungary finally opened the doors to East Germans into Austria, and also, probably knowingly, opened the doors to the final collapse of the Soviet Union only a few months later.
In the photo above, East German refugees in Budapest wait for the news of open passage into Austria around 10 September 1989.
If you like this, I’d recommend reading this as well. ^_^

Gentosha has released a (low resolution version of) the cover for the Hetalia-like WWI Original Guide Book. It is said to be a book that contains “amusing episodes and modern history of the world in a Hetalia-like introduction.”
It is scheduled to be released on September 30, 2014.

Himaruya last updated his blog on March 6, 2014. It’s been just over six months since we’ve heard from him.
I hope that he’s doing all right.
