Hetalia Axis Powers episode 7

Time is becoming increasingly limited for me at the moment, what with exams and whatnot. Chances are that this blog will have to become a Hetalia only blog until Brian or Loba return, which will hopefully be fairly soon.

You just can't feel grumpy while looking at that smile!

But don’t worry, I’ll be keeping up with Hetalia. At 5 minutes per episode, it’s hardly eating up valuable time.

This episode introduced two new characters, although one of them has been hanging around for a while.

This guy represents this country called America. No idea where that is, I think it’s somewhere in Africa, right? I was hoping that perhaps he would bring some new jokes to the table but all he does is eat fast food, which is basically an extension on Italy’s joke. Come on Hetalia, come up with something else! Although I do like the ‘and I’ll be the hero!’ line America spouts out, it’s just so true. At least, that’s what I’ve heard about America. I doubt they have a large enough army to be any sort of hero. They probably don’t even have any nuclear weapons.

The other new character is South Italy, who may at first seem to be completely different from his pasta-loving brother but it soon becomes clear that both north and south are completely useless at fighting. The gag in this one is South Italy is slightly racist and dislikes Germany (ironic seeing as what Germany did during the war) yet still squeals and asks Germany for help when he sees France on his way. Oh, and for possibly the first time we saw Italy look slightly phased by something that happened after South Italy asked for a rather strange favour.

I must admit I get slightly lost at stages during this anime. For example in the scene above; Is this a reference to the amount of French resistance groups hiding underground during WWII? Are still even in WWII? And why in gods name is Italy afraid of France? And as for chibitalia, I have no idea what’s going on. Pretty much all it serves is for us to look at ultra-cute chibis. Like this fellow

Almost as cute as this little fox boy

    “And why in gods name is Italy afraid of France?”
    It sounds like you didn’t read the webcomic. France in Hetalia is a sexual predator who usually makes inappropriate comments towards most of the characters, even molesting them. So he gained quite a rep.

    Nah, I much prefer watching the anime versions of anything but Hetalia does seem to assume you’ve read the comic already. Basically, it seems like it’s just for the fangirls, which is kinda annoying for someone like me. I suppose I should read the webcomic

    Cool. Though as a warning, the comics after the main story have LOTS of ship teasing and is a lot more fanservicy in general. Although since it falls under the moe genre, it’s to be expected.

    And you live where? You probably live in Africa yourself, ahaha.
    Now now, my friend, not to be rude, as I do enjoy your blogs about Hetalia very much~ You are very wrong! You may or may not have been kidding, but for Pete’s sake man I really hope you aren’t.
    America is in North America, right below Canada. In the 1700’s we defeated Great Britan all though we were entirely weaker and had less resources, as well as being incredibly uneducated. America is known for it’s incredibly greasy & I suppose sometimes gross fast food. The reason he is always saying “I’ll be the hero!” is because apparently Americans normally want to be the center of attention.
    Also, you’re kidding about the army thing, right? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Army
    You make me sick when you say things like you know about the greatest country & freest on Earth. Where ever it is that you live, we could kill your entire country and the surrounds one next to in an instant.
    However~ since we’re all heros and pride ourselves and being assholes~ we won’t~ unless you do something bad first.
    “Kid you have no idea what you’re talking about regarding your country at all, my country is–” All talk, whatever you’re thinking, dear. I don’t careeee~
    You’re an asshole.
    However, no hard feelings, eh~? I hope to read your blogs on Hetalia still~
    By the way, episode 8 is also out and subbed.

    as much as I enjoyed your blog (and your lovely screenshots of hetalia, thanks you so much for that)
    I was very surprised that you didn’t know much about America
    I’m sure other people call this country U.S.A but I thought most people in the world knew about America…
    where do you live again? you type in English so I assume you knew about America… oh well :D
    but other than that, really nice blog, I really liked your pictures xD

    I really like your blog, but as an America I really do find what you said a little harsh. Now you were probably just joking around, and if you are than it’s funny as hell :) But seriously?

    You probably know this, but America is located in North America, South of Canada and north of Mexico. We are one of the most powerful and influential countries in the world… know for other than fast food and our either way too fat or way to skinny people. :) Ever heard of Disney, Apple, Windows? Hollywood? And our army is HUGE! Maybe it’s not as big as China’s but it’s certainly one of the most powerful in the world.

    Look I know you’re really just joking around, but it is a little offensive. But I don’t have any hard feelings. I actually read it over and started laughing out loud. Keep up the good work :)
    P.S-We do have nuclear weapons, how do you think beat Japan in 1945? >:)

    *begins to laugh*
    I knew it was a good idea to read through all the old posts to cheer me up.
    The comments made it even better though.

    O.K, seriously? I hope you were joking when you said “No idea where that is, I think it’s some­where in Africa, right?” Do you live under a rock????? I’m twelve and I know where America is. My niece is four and she knows where America is. Really.
