    Unhappy Axis Powers Hetalia anime has been rated "TV-MA"

    http://twitter.com/funimation/status/13314660500

    We rate each series as a whole and are rating Hetalia as TV-MA because of some instances of profanity, crude humor and adult situations.
    I sadly have to say that most of the fandom has been watching a "R-rated" program all along. TT^TT

    It has been a sad, sad day for me that people will be missing out to this great series.

    But then again...Think Of The Children.

    Also it's nice that it's going to be streamed on HULU. :D

    So?

    With today's internet, it's extremely easy for a kid to watch a show without their parents finding out. If someone really wants to watch this show, they'll watch it.

    it's going to be streamed on Hulu? Awesome!

    I've heard so many people talk about it, so I've always wanted to sit down and watch it.

    No duh. But it's better to be official. :3

    With a show called "Axis Powers Hetalia", I'd be surprised if it got a lower rating. Although it does look pretty hilarious, the themes and goals of whatever this show is trying to do will be lost on younger viewers.

    The third season is now called "Hetalia World Series" @3@

    But meh, it's a fun jumping point for historical interest. :P

    Oh man, this is gold. I've told so many people I've referred to this show that "It's like, PG, at most".

    I guess the fact that I'm phased by nothing skewed my interpretation a bit

    True that. xD I mean, I've know it's more than G, sometimes more than PG (like that scene where America received condoms and Italy mentioned Germany had porn involving dogs), but MA? I lol'ed. Oh well, depends on how you see it.

    It's never a big deal for me if something like that happens, because I have my methods of sneaking views of "mature" shows.

    Although I don't like to take that risk a lot anymore... I remember when my dad caught me watching Aqua Teen Hunger Force. *shudders*

    Don't worry. It's mostly comedy. XP

    Apparently, this is based on the whole series and not just a certain episode right?

    Well that's because most episodes are just around PG level. There are some that might not be liked by the Moral Police so it got bumped up to MA. @3@

    Go watch an ep. It's not as if the anime has immoral stuff in it. (Cept for maybe the shota eps. XP)

    MA? As if some parents actually know what their kids watch on TV anyway.
    Like MY parents. Lucky me.

    But well, it's not like my older brother called me a nazi when I told him that one of the anime that I've been watching lately is called Axis Powers Hetalia. LOL.

    Well, it's based off of certain moments filtered throughout all of the episodes. One example is:

    Also, for the dubbing process, they may take some liberties in what most of Iggy (England) says, considering they made him a relatively angry man in Japanese. xD
