This episode saw Japan and England hanging out together for some unknown reason. Aren’t they meant to be mortal enemies in this current conflict? Or has Japan finally gotten sick of being hit on the head with a wok that he’s given up, even though they were the last country to give up in the war. Not that it matters since it gives time for Japan and England to play off each other in moments of comedic gold! Eh, not quite. Japan, as I’ve said before, isn’t a funny character and England didn’t seem to feel like making any jokes today so we were left with a bit of an underwhelming episode.
This episode felt like it belonged in Natsume Yuujinchou, not Hetalia. It wasn’t funny, wasn’t touching and really pointless. It might have strengthened relationships to make certain jokes funnier later on, like England and America’s episodes, but England spent most of the episode talking to a freaking kappa. Plus, Japan just is not funny. I managed to get myself a bit excited at hearing all the different characters singing ending songs after Germany’s brilliant version but Japan’s was awful. His voice was too quiet to hear (intentional?) and the lyrics weren’t funny either.
I suppose Hetalia was due a poor episode. We had gone at least 5 without having one and I guess it was inevitable. Ah well, here’s to hoping Hetalia returns to it’s previous form next week.
