Episode 4 is an episode devoted to our dear friend Japan, the third member of the Axis Powers. However when I say devoted, I mean a Hetaliased version of devoted. That means we get half the episode with Japan, the rest is taken up with chibitalia, the closing song and a completely pointless next episode preview.
When you study WWII in Europe, Japan is usually added as an afterthought, with more focus shown on the rise of fascism (remember, the reason we teach history is so people won’t do the same things again). Japan is a far more important country to America (remember Pearl Harbour!!!) and obviously to Japan themselves. Basically what I’m trying to say is Japans involvement in the war is a bit of a mystery to me, although it is true that Germany had a bit of respect for that little Oriental country that made miniature submarines in several different colours, with a new colour to be released on tv by a famous actress.
Problem was that when they had finished making me laugh at Japans knowledge of when to speak and answering everything with a phrase that basically meant ‘no’, the show then went onto Chibitalia, which I’m already getting bored of. Yes, chibi Italy is very cute and seeing him being beaten up or randomly eaten by dogs is kinda funny, but otherwise it seriously lacks the energy and wit the main storyline hasThen they did that totally pointless next episode preview, which has basically ruined about 10% of the next episode already, including a pasta sandcastle. Why do they even bother! You could’ve popped in a joke insulting Koreans or something. Oh well, I guess I’ll just post a few pictures of my favorite character in this show.
It looks like I just photoshoped the same face onto every pictures doesn’t it
