Anime no Sekai
A new era dawns, a world of anime unveiled
Anime no Sekai seeks to be one of the prominent anime mods in Hearts of Iron IV by not only filling every single portrait with an anime counterpart, but also focus on consistency, beauty, and to a significant extent, historical accuracy, with event pictures, custom UI, and much more coming up!
Despite the plethora of anime mods, both large and small, on the workshop, we have, still are, and will do our best to bring about a qualitative anime experience when playing Hearts of Iron IV.
The reason for an early release of Anime no Sekai is to get some feedback and suggestions from the community. This mod should therefore be considered a work in progress.
Total portrait overhaul in progress! We have revamped loading screens and portraits for the majority of nations, with the rest coming up as we get closer to 1.0. Additionally, new GER, JAP, ITA, SOV, and FRA admiral and general portraits have been added, with USA and ENG being the next in line to receive theirs!
Current version: Anime no Sekai (Beta Branch)
"Ein Reich, Ein Volk, Ein Waifu" – totally not me
> Portraits for major and several minor countries, with more coming up.
> Immersive portrait selection. Our insanely high beauty standards are also made to be compatible with consistency and historical immersion.
> Custom and immersive main theme from Re:Zero. A separate music mod can be found here!
> More than 15 wallpapers which conform to the portraits selected for the mod itself.
> Some custom UI, with more coming up as the mod expands.
> Anime Vladimir Putin
It is recommended to use DLCs with this mod since it brings about more beautiful waifus to play as!
In the order of top priority to lowest priority:
> Completion of all remaining portraits in the game. (approximate completion: November-December 2019)
> Immersive event pictures. (approximate completion: November-December 2019)
> Minister portraits for every country! (approximate completion: April 2020)
> Custom voices for divisions (TBA)
Is this mod compatible for multiplayer?
This is a graphics only mod so it will work.
Is this mod save game compatible?
See above (so yes it should work as well). You can load a save game and anime portraits will replace the normal ones.
What if HOI4 gets updated?
We’ll get to work as soon as possible and roll out an update.
When ‘till the next update?
When it’s ready. We’ll ensure that updates get released in a finished state.
Will there be animated portraits?
No. Though it is possible that we might experiment with such but in another mod.
Will the male names turn into female names?
No since a significant amount of portraits are art with no character name and changing names will also break Ironman compatibility.
Who is the girl/source for x? (plus loading screen source)
