AllMusic Review by

Building on the massive success of the Hetalia Axis Powers anime series (which re-creates modern European history, into the WWII era, with grade-school children embodying the various nations), drama CDs were released after the first season or so. These CDs contain no music, but instead act as additions to the main series. The same voice actors work their way through some additional script time, though without any visual accompaniment. The result is a bit hit or miss -- die-hard fans of the show have shown extreme love for the CD drama series, happy to have additional material with their favorite characters. At the same time, those who haven't seen much of the show are likely to find the audio-only format a bit lacking. Those lacking in Japanese-language skills should, of course, find the album much more lacking.
