The first ever anime immersion mod for Hearts of Iron IV is here!

In honour of Anime no Sekai's first year anniversary, we have released a special name-changer mod consisting of special historical portraits for the starting leaders!

The mod features everything that previous Star Empire mods had been built on, ranging for qualitative anime portraits, anime event pictures, division voice lines, and so on.

It is truly accomplishment for us to release the first ever anime immersion mod for Hearts of Iron IV, which features anime portrits that were made to mimic the historical ones featured in-game!

Amongst the large collection of anime mods on the workshop, both large and small, we have been, still are, and will be committed to bringing you the best anime content for Hearts of Iron IV.

Our current work focus is to find any bugs, missing portraits, and names we may have missed during the early stages of development.

> Official mod wikia

What is the difference between this mod, Anime no Sekai, and Starguard's World of Anime?
This mod features name changes and historical-style portraits closely replicating vanilla's while World of Anime features the same minus the historical-style portraits, perfect for those who want a more diverse registry of portraits. Anime no Sekai on the other hand, has no name-changes and is thus Ironman and MP compatible.

Is this mod compatible for multiplayer?
No sadly. All friends have to have it on when playing MP. In addition to that, we are not Ironman compatible due to the name changes. Check out Anime Historia's Ironman sibling though!

Is this mod save game compatible?
Yes but if loading in from an old save game, the portrait names will be that of the original leader but the portrait itself will change to it's anime counterpart.

What if HOI4 gets updated?
We'll get to work as soon as possible and roll out updates.

When 'till the next update?
When it's ready. We make sure they are in a finished state first.

Will there be animated portraits?
Is this even trendy anymore?

Who is the girl/source for x? (plus loading screen source)
You can ask for the girl/source in our Discord server. The questions committee will handle such matters.

I have discovered a bug/missing portrait/missing name/etc.!
Check on our Discord and submit your issue to the questions and requests section or just lodge it in the comments below.

1.10 'Collie' will be out tomorrow!

The new Battle for the Bosphorus update is coming out! Here is the comprehensive plan and stages that I'd like to disclose so you all know what to expect!

- Anime no Sekai takes priority and will be updated to the new version alongside new portraits to the new leaders! The update to anything else (e.g. event pictures) will come later. ETA an hour or two after 1.10's release.
- Starguard's World of Anime and Anime Historia will receive basic updates in the weekend with a comprehensive overhaul of the history. decisions, event, and other files to come next week.
- And then the rest will have a compatibility update to 1.10 I guess.
