After my last Hetalia post involved me pissing about with peoples comments and generally acting the idiot, time for me get back to my critical dissertation of the latest episode of Hetalia. Or I could just prat about like I usually do.
You know, I actually didn’t find this episode that funny. In fact I found it kind of creepy. You know why? Because of this:
What the hell is this? Look at the size of his head compared to his body! That creeped me out to no end. I know France is meant to be portrayed as a bit unnerving but this was too much. I actually couldn’t concentrate on the subs, that’s how weirded out I was. Chibi England was nowhere near as creepy as France was. Actually chibi England is pretty cute looking. Chibi England looks chibi. Chibi France just looks deformed.
I know people might think I looked at this and thought ‘chibi characters, bleargh’ but that’s not what I’m normally like with chibis at all. Chibification can be a fantastic comedic device. I just never found this episode funny. The only part about this episode I genuinely liked was England’s awesome ending song about rum and tubes. I never realised that people in other countries don’t call it the tube. If you called it a subway in England people would assume you want a sandwich in the subway sandwich bar. Do you have them in America? You must do, I think they’re in practically every country in the world.
That’s a Bouncing Betty Germany is holding. The reason I know that is from playing too much Call of Duty: World at War. I was never any good at snipers in these games but my friend was. The guy with the sniper always got these bouncing betty’s (they’re basically like mines that jump into the air before exploding) and everytime I think I’d snuck up on him a bouncing betty would get me.
Yeah, I think I’m suffering from brain drain after such a long post last time. So I’m going to leave you with yet another Hetalia copycat anime that’s been made into an anime. This time instead of countries, the Zodiac characters have been bishified.
See what you’ve started Hetalia!
