What an excellent 4 minutes and 33 seconds of Hetalia that was. Normally the episodes last for 5 full minutes so it’s a bit odd that this one ended early. I wonder what happened to those last 27 seconds. I have no recollection of them whatsoever.
No really, nothing happened after the 4 minute, 33 second mark.
This episode of Hetalia finally touched on something I’ve been waiting to happen since I first saw France disagree with England in the first episode ‘simply because I always disagree with England’. Every single war fought by either country instantly had the other joining the opposing side. If no wars started in mainland Europe, they just started their own little war to keep the military-economy going (which, oddly enough, is exactly what America is doing at the moment. Declaring war in order to keep their military-economy complex going after the end of the Cold War). Hetalia portrayed this perfectly, with other countries complaining that they keep butting in on their arguments. Just remember that if a war starts out with France and America on one side, the other side will include China, Germany and England.
The rest of the episode was England and America bonding and setting the scene for the ‘America’s Storage Cleaning’ episodes. While it’s kinda funny, mainly it’s just meant to be cute. Problem is, that’s exactly how Chibitalia started out as. Not that funny but kind of cute. Thank God no Chibitalia appeared in this episode. Yup, no HRE or teeny-weeny Italy in this episode. No completely disturbing softcore shotacon yaoi nonsense whatsoever. That was the end of the episode. Actually, there was one thing I noticed while watching this…
ZOMG IT’S LELOUCH!!!! HE’S RIGHT THERE, THE CART DRIVER, THE CART DRIVER IS LELOUCH!!!!! HOW CAN YOU NOT SEE THAT?!?!?! YOU SEE YOU SEE, RIGHT THERE IF YOU ZOOM UP CLOSELY YOU CAN SEE HIS FACE THATS DEFINATELY LELOUCH!!!! DON’T RUIN MY DREAM!!!!
(I apologise to those of you who have yet to see Code Geass. If you are one of those unfortunate people can I just ask you: Where have you been for the past year or two? Especially if you are a yaoi fangirl, there’s mountains of fodder for you to drool over)
