Hetalia World Series - Episode 15 (Extra: Dub Preview)


Good to see you again, Tino dear! =D

This episode features the Axis Powers, yet another Chibitalia moment, and another Chibi!Romano portion. Most of the episode has been wasted on the little darling that's been getting too much screentime, and only a little of what I enjoyed the most.... which apparently is also the creepiest one (blame it on Francis, haha!).

And what's actually more exciting than the recent episode is.... THE DUB PREVIEW!

So about the first part:

Ludwig got a bento from Feliciano (It appears that Feliciano often cooks for him and his cooking skills are recognized as excellent! w00t Italia!). For some reason the bento made Ludwig angry (I don't really know why.) but later couldn't help himself from eating the delicious thing anyway, ehehe.

Now for the second part:

*sigh* Okay, another Chibitalia + HRE thingy. Yes, it's cute. But jeez, I prefer that they have aired this in the first season. This episode has finally mentioned that HRE thinks that Chibitalia is female!!!! The assumptions of HRE having homosexual tastes wouldn't have been in the minds of the anime audience with no manga background if this has been explained earlier! *sigh*
On the bright side, it's better late than never. The third season is at least catching up on what the first season had failed to air. I hope that it'll continue to feature the strips that should've been featured earlier for better understanding of the Hetalia universe. Once the third season becomes successful on that, then the fourth season (if ever there will be) will definitely be more promising.

And then for the last part:
There's too much of Chibitalia but there'll never be enough of Chibi!Romano. Ohohohohohoho!!! *biased Romano fan is biased*

Lovino will be going home for three days but Antonio is very worried on having the boy go alone because of.... a number of dangerous nation-tans. Ehehe. But of course Lovino would insist that he could take care of himself, even though he had been helpless on so many things. Haha!


Who cares if Antonio is being considered as "pedo"; he has genuine concern for the kid. I see them as having the father-and-son relationship.... and Antonio's worry for his little boy is just.... daaaaaaaaaaaaw.

He totally has a reason for being worried:

A certain dangerous nation-tan already has his eyes on Lovino.


His face.... his tone.... his voice.... his lines.... Certified Creepy Pedo Pervert.


They're both disturbingly perverted actually (anyone else heard about the deleted strip concerning these two and Chibitalia? It was so.... oh my god...) but if one of them is creeped out with the other.... then we can tell which one is worse.

Ah, yes, Francis is a pervert but he's still a lovable character. Not to mention handsome:

YAY for being featured in the ending theme!

Next episode:

We'll be "seeing" Kiku get angry. The way on how he could become angry is really so.... LOLz.
Looking forward to seeing Turko-san again!

And oh..... everyone.... to those who haven't heard of the news yet.....
THERE'S ALREADY A DUB SAMPLE!!!!!

(thanks kyosangel286 for the upload!)
SO FAR SO GOOD!!!! I LOVE THE ACCENTS!!!!!!! (GERMANY'S, RUSSIA'S AND AMERICA'S WERE SO SPOT ON! ESPECIALLY AMERICA!!! SO PERFECT! ENGLAND'S AND FRANCE'S WERE SEXY! I'VE BEEN REPEATING THAT SEXY BRITISH ACCENT OVER AND OVER! AND THE REST LOOKS GREAT TOO [Fine, I dunno about Spain's.... even Switzerland's] ) THE VOICES FIT EVEN IF THEY SOUND A LITTLE DIFFERENT FROM THEIR JAPANESE COUNTERPARTS!!!! ACTUAL NATIONALITIES CAN VOICE THEIR NATIONS BETTER ANYWAYZ xD
AND DAMN TO THE SUSPENSE ON HOW FELICIANO'S "PASTAAAAAAAAAAA" WILL SOUND LIKE!!!! (News say there's no Italy yet....)
FUNi DVD WHERE???? SEPTEMBER, WHY TAKING SO LONG????

The dub clip is from a FUNImation panel that lasted for 15 minutes at 11:00 PST. So yeah, there are echoes in it since they're just recorded live from a convention or something. It's quite difficult to listen to them but... you could still hear them so.... no complains for now because it's better than nothing xD

But they're still a little different from the subs, so here are drafty transcripts of the clip thanks to keruchu and youkokitsune122

{VERSION 1}
[From the beginning]

America: Dude, I think the world conference (came to be?)!
Solving all of the world's problems by talking excessively! No matter how hard it seems, we can fix anything with enough meetings and photo ops! Feel free to speak honestly while protecting your chances for relashing(?)! I'll go first! About that whole using global warming to enslave humanity thing, I think we'll be okay if we genetically engineer a huge hero (hat?) to protect the earth! I give you the superhero (Bubbleman/Bomberman?)!
Japan: I agree with America--
Switzerland: Back off or I'll beat you with my peace prize!
England: There's no way some hero would help global warming or humanity's enslavement!

[Skip to 00:38]

America: You Frenchies love to hate America! What happened to (I think I heard something about "statues") like you used to?
China: Western nations are so immature! (something something "open up there" and "work", he's probably talking about China town) Would you guys like to sample some Chinese (pastry treats?)
Spain: Hey! Why don't you say something, Russia? You're so (something)
Russia: No thanks. I want to see Lithuania (giving me?) trouble and come crawling back for help. And Latvia will be right behind him!

[Skip to 01:24]

Germany: EVERYONE SHUT UP!
Everyone: Germany?!
Germany: We called this conference to solve the world's problems, so don't fight about the problems of our past. And if I'm the only country that seems to know how to run a meeting, we'll follow my rules and (something) speeches, no chit-chat or side deals, and absolutely (no going over the packets?)! Now if you want to go make sure you're prepared, and raise your hand but do so in a manner that does not involve (going through?) to my country's past!

{VERSION 2}
America:
Dude, I think the world conference (cam?) can be:
solving all of today's problems by talking excessively.
No matter how hard it seems, we can fix anything with
enough meetings and photo-ops. Feel free to speak, obviously
while protecting your chances for reelection. I'll go
first. About the whole "using global warming to enslave
humanity thing", I think we'll be okay if we genetically
engineer a huge hero and have him protect the earth. I
give you the Superhero Fluff-a-Man!

Japan:
I agree with America--

Switzerland:
Back off or I'll beat you with my Peace Prize!

England:
There's no way some hero will help global warming or
humanity from slavery.

France:
It's a good thing that...*muffled words*

England:
*some kind of insult*

America:
You Frenchies love to hate America...*something else*

China:
Western nations are so immature, I doubt they'll ever grow up.
Maybe I should try appealing to the modern (?) of theirs which
seems to work.....Would you guys like
to sample some Chinese tasty treat?

France and England:
We'll just get hungry again!

Spain:
Hey, why don't you say something, Russia? (This whole
fighting will be over in seconds.)

Russia:
Oh? Why me? No thanks. I want to see Lithuania giving me
trouble and come crawling back for help.

Latvia:
Wahaha!! ;A;

Russia:
And Latvia will be right behind!

Estonia:
(The only word I can make out is "tough")

Poland:
(I hear him talking, I really do. I have no clue what he's saying)

Conference Room:
(chaos~)

Germany:
EVERYONE SHUT UP!

France and England:
Germany?!

Germany:
We've called this conference to solve the world's problems not
to fight on the problems of our past. And since I'm the
only country who seems to know how to run a meeting, we'll
follow my rules from now on out. Eight minutes each of
speeches: no chit-chat or side deals. And absolutely no
going over the time limit. Now if you want to go, make sure
you prepare and raise your hand. But do so in a way that
does not mock insult to my country's past.


SO.... WHAT DO YOU THINK???? ^^

I'm not sure if I like England's voice or not. It fits the sound of a proper gentleman, but at the same time doesn't sound like Arthur.

Anonymous said...

The asians sounded.. weird. O_O''

Well, I really wonder how would they voice Chibitalia characters. I mean, usually most children dubs are kinda fail.


LOL on a side note: PFFFFFFFFFFT- Ludwig gets angry at most things. Even cute, tasty things! D': No wonder he doesn't have a girl friend.

Rikku said...

I'm still feeling so conflicted over this. D; It's like, I like Germany's and Russia's immediatly, England's is growing on me the more I hear it but I'm still a little worried, but...for some reason...America's voice bothers me. Which is weird because he sounds pretty much like I pictured. I'm hoping that as I watch more I'll like it more but idk. ;__;

BUT I refuse to make real judgements until I see more than a minute and 45 seconds of chaos and so many voices talking I think my brain exploded.*__*

Todd is epic at voice acting China

Anonymous said...

America's voice was so... American. Perfect! I loved Germany and Russia; they were perfect, too! I couldn't understand what France was saying, though! Or Poland, either! I think England's accent was really funny, probably cause Aericans think all British people talk funny, anyways lol. I can't wait for this to come out! Waaaah I'm so excited!

Sam said...

Switzerland and Spain bugged me...
I think I'm going toneeds some getting used to with England's voice, too.
I thought Poland's voice was like perfect, though. (Although I couldn't hear his at all!)
China worked... but again, I have no idea what he was saying. (Or if he said "aru" or not, it almost sounded like he did)
Of course, this sounds like it was almost 80% ad-libbed. That's not bad, it was actually funnier than the original. (PEACE PRIZE!!)
Hmm.
Auhg. Long post is long.

Anonymous said...

I'm sorry... but I don't think any accent is great at all, except for Americas, (since he's probably dubbed by an American, it's spot on)
But england has too little brittish accent, I think his brittish should be exerated almost... and I couldn't even hear france <.<
China doesn't sound chinese! He sound like an american that speaks while pinching his nose...
Russia doesn't sound russian, neither does germany sound german. Trust me. I'm a speciallist in languages, so i've heard many accents in english all around the world... these are not them. You clearly hear that all of them are americans trying to imitate the language of the countries. That's pretty B ;(

Hal said...

@ dub: Oh they're good. I mean yeah there are some voices that will take some getting use to, but I simply love the cast. It's zany-crazy and definitely adhering to the satire bonanza that's represented in Hetalia.

I have a feeling that we did in actuality hear Italy say "pasta" in the first Funimation trailer, and I'm getting the vibe that it's Todd Haberkorn who's portraying the voice.

I'm totally up for buying the DVD, and can't wait to hear even more.

Chanler said...

YAAAY GIRIPAN
GIRIPAN
GIRIPAN!!!!
*Cough* I'm sorry, you have to love them...

The dub...
America was pretty good~
I LOVED ENGLAND'S XD
I couldn't really hear France very well...
Spain was so Spanish *That was good*
China...
Was...
HORRIBLE D:<
Russia... he's my baby... but like... The voice works, it does, but it's not as cute, so it disturbs the character D:
I liked Poland's too.

I DON'T KNOW HOW I FEEL ABOUT THIS DUB.
IT SEEMS OKAY...

@dub: Good dub

Desiree said...

ffs, I may just be hearing things but I think the insult England throws at France is "You bloody frog!" or something like that. When France began talking when Iggy was ~ C:

Besides that, I can't wait until the dub is out~ Also! I'm pretty sure that they may change the audio to English and Japanese but the DVD Season 1 is available on Amazon ~

Here's the link !

N-no pasta? What did they think that was rasist or something???!?!?!??!! WHY!?!?!??! I wanted to hear ITALIA!!!!!!!!!

Estonia says, "If you think you are so tough why don't you pick a fight with England?" Well I think that is what he says..

Kiseki said...

But you have to admit that China was horrible right? D8

Sapphire Pyro said...

@ purewhitemagic
Perhaps he'll sound more tsun tsun or punkish like Sugiyama when very pissed? He seemed to have that tone in this preview after France spoke. Hehe.

@ Anonymous 1
Oh I hope the children dub won't fail on this x_x

@ Rikku
It's hard to make final judgements if it's difficult to hear and it's very short. So we can only have first impressions on it. Ehehe.

@ Anonymous 2
He's epic indeed if it is him. Though he's "confirmed".... an official list would still be more certain.

@ Anonymous 3
I don't understand what France was saying either xD But the way he spoke... very France xD Haha

"probably cause Aericans think all British people talk funny, anyways lol. "
=== I thought that's applicable to anyone that's different from your accent/language, hehe

@ Sam
I haven't heard of a Swiss and Spanish english accent.... but they really sound awkward for the nation-tan, right? x_x

"I thought Poland's voice was like perfect, though. (Although I couldn't hear his at all!)"
=== how did that happen, LOLz xD

"Of course, this sounds like it was almost 80% ad-libbed. That's not bad, it was actually funnier than the original. (PEACE PRIZE!!)"
=== Funny indeed xD I didn't get where the "peace prize" came from though

Long post is okay~

" Trust me. I'm a speciallist in languages, so i've heard many accents in english all around the world... these are not them. You clearly hear that all of them are americans trying to imitate the language of the countries"
=== They don't match the right accents? That's sad.... but hhhmm.... Though I'm not a specialist, I'm familiar with some accents and I think some of them are okay. I think it's alright if voice actors just imitate the accents.... that's their talent after all, the power of voice acting! xD

@ Hal
There was a "pasta" in the trailer? I can't rewatch it at the moment.... but I'm pretty sure there wasn't.... because if it were, there'll be loads of comment son Italy's dubber already before the news of this preview....

@ Chanler
Yay for more Giripan xD
Spain was really very Spanish???? Okay, I just find it weird *has heard Spanish dialogues but not English in Spanish accent*

@ Anonymous 5
But it's difficult to eat super adorable things xD LOLz

@ Poots
The cliffhanger on the pasta part was evil =_=

@ Anonymous 6
Haha, certainly not racist. They just want to kill the fans with suspense x_x

@ Anonymous 7
Seriously? Sounds so wrong but I like that line xD Hahahaha!

@ Kiseki
Hmmm.... the accent wasn't Chinese enough for me. As for the voice.... I think it fits Yao. It reminded me of a voice of an old yet short dude.... kinda fits him? Hahaha! So I can't really say that it was that horrible.....

Anonymous said...

....It's so beautiful.... :,)

They really have done a good job, from the sound of this recording.

I didn't like America's voice at first but it's grown on me. I dunno, it sounded a little garbled but hey, he did have a very big line the lip sync at the start there.

Germany!!!!!!!!! OMG!!!!!! JUST... WHOA LIKE

Someone said above that England's voice isn't exaggerated enough or something? Being a brit myself I'd say his accent is VERY exaggerated. Any more exaggerated and I'd probably feel a little uncomfortable XD. And I absolutely love it, I think I does suit him (so relieved XD).

... not sure about China ("-_-). But you can't really make a proper judgement from just this recording, here's hoping high quality will change my mind. Roll on, September!

Poots said...

They just talked too fast ;o; America was just wordswordswordsOKAYBREATH.

And no PASTA is no FUN, FUNimation.

DayDreamer95 said...

No matter how hard I try, I always imagined Spain with a more... cuter, higher pitched voice. I also cannot think of how this will be when he is talking about Romano without sounding like a pedo. xD

"You're so tough next you'll try to pick a fight with (Hell?)" for Estonia. I do believe. Maybe.

"ABOUT THE WHOLE USING GLOBAL WARMING TO ENSLAVE HUMANITY--" and I realized that the dubbed version was most positively worth watching.

I think that Ludwig was just angry for being portrayed by Feliciano as mean. (=A=) Or he was tired of his silly antics, but finally gave in.
I just loved how Francis said "ROMANOOO, ROMANOOO~♥" Freaking made, my, day.
Deleted strip I know not about? *hunts for it*

I fainted when I heard Russias Voice >w<

All I can hear from Poland is "If you come any closer to Lithuania I will not...." hope it could be of any help to you...

Anonymous said...

None of these accents sound 'right' to me, apart from americas, but hes most likely being played by an american like the other characters.

China's sounds nothing like a chinese accent, it actually caused me to laugh (i have been to china myself)
I realy dislike Englands accent, it sounds realy forced to me, like they attempted a posh cockney accent, something that just does not work (i tried it myself being english lol) i hope when they record the actual thing it sounds better.

I don't see why they don't just have someone with the real accents voice the characters instead of fakeing them, it would be much better in this case.

Anonymous said...

It actually sounded like Estonia said, "You're so tough, next time why don't you try picking a fight with Haiti?"
A fight which wouldn't be fair, I think.
I LOVE Spain's voice~. And Russia's. And England's voice, for some reason, made me think of Murdoc Niccals talking without his usual gravelly voice. That's a good thing.
China's voice... it's growing on me. It's just so different...
But Germany's voice was epic and if I listen hard enough, I can hear his accent, which is spot on, in my opinion. And I think that was Chris Sabat? Epic.
BUT NO ITALY????

"Feel free to speak honestly while protecting your chances for re-election!"
... Is what I think I heard America say. Why the countries would need electing, I don't know.

Anonymous said...

It kinda sounded like France was saying, "It's a good thing that they don't agree since I generally disagree with both", and "Agreeing with you guys would be in bad taste".

Anonymous said...

The Hetalia wiki says that Italy-chan will be voiced as Todd Haberkorn, the voice-actor of Kimihiro Watanuki in xxxHolic, Death the Kid in Soul Eater and Hikaru from Ouran in the english dubs. And he's awesome. He's the reason I watched xxxHolic in the english dub.

The Black Sheep said...

I love love LOOOOOVE it!!! :DD It sounds GREATT!!!! I absolutely LOVE their accents and, Russia's is uhMAZING!!! It's fabulous! :) although... China sounds weird... :/ I'm not sure what it is... but he sounds really strange bleh. XP

"Being a brit myself I'd say his accent is VERY exaggerated. Any more exaggerated and I'd probably feel a little uncomfortable XD. And I absolutely love it, I think I does suit him (so relieved XD)."
=== from seeing british shows, his accent does seem more exagerrated compare to those. I guess it's true that actual brits can figure out their accents better. thanks for the info ^^

@ DayDreamer95
the enslave humanity thing was so LOLz xD More WTF than the actual thing. I don't mind since.... it's not that different from the real thing. LOLz

@ Latest Anonymous 3
You are amazing for being able to hear Poland from that O_O

@ Latest Anonymous 4
I think England's more like exagerrated than forced though.... exagerrations works in animation for me xD

"I don't see why they don't just have someone with the real accents voice the characters instead of fakeing them, it would be much better in this case."
=== hard to find for all of them and that fits. And I think voice actors could be talented enough to imitate accents wonderfully ^^ It's just the voice anywayz, but if it's a live-action movie, that's a different issue....

@ Latest Anonymous 7
Amazing you were able to hear him well xD

@ Latest Anonymous 8
Ah, I've heard of the slip/leak on Italy's VA. I don't get why they still keep it on suspense though.
