Waiting for subs. It’s like when your history teacher is sick for a week. Except when your history teacher wasn’t subbed, you actually enjoyed not having to listen to him. When Hetalia is ill it takes you a while to realise…err, I think I mixed something up there.
In a move that comes as a relief to most people, Deen decided upon continuity for a change. In a move that will surprise pretty much everyone, I’m starting to wonder whether staggering these episodes would have been better. Yes I know that I’ve blasted Deen in the past for absolutely no continuity whatsoever, but you never know. The anticipation when a new segment of the Austrian Succession might have worked better than putting them in one arc. It would be like the opposite of the Chibitalia effect. Instead of crying in despair when another installment appeared, your mood instantly perks up upon seeing Prussia’s manic grin.
Mind you, I think that’s just the blogger in me talking because I can’t think of anything to say about this episode that I didn’t already say in the last post and comments. England leaving the war after beating France was funny if only in it’s predictability. Prussia hasn’t really done anything asides from continue his pompous arrogance, which is cool and all but I said that already. The new part of this episode was Hungary, who I hadn’t understood the appeal of so far, but this scene was pretty awesome.
Or maybe that’s just the man inside me thinking ‘holy crap, a women in Hetalia? That kicks ass and seizes vital regions? That’s awesome!’. Originally I thought Hungary and Maria Theresa were the same person, so seeing them side by side threw me for a second. Still, another women in Hetalia. Considering we’ve had a grand total of….err…well, there’s Liechtenstein, Hungary, Belarus and Ukraine that have actually appeared in the anime, so that makes it 4.
