B: And that is why the Creepypasta of Italy getting his organs eaten by Germany and Japan cannot possibly be true. B: I dunno. And then I can draw one deeply sad!

For one thing, it is assumed that the viewer is already a fan of Hetalia , so the first couple minutes of the movie are extremely rushed in introducing the characters. Secondly, the eight pivotal characters are the only ones the movie really focuses on, although the others get plenty of face time.
The setting was fairly strong, although it was a tad confusing at times wondering how on Earth they got onto the mothership one moment and then ended up in Chinatown or at a Japanese bon-dancing festival the next. Once again, this is where the movie was pretty strong. Also, the instrumentals that appeared in this movie for the first time really did a good job at setting the mood.
