Hetalia World Series episode 13

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.

And out of the 4 women, 2 of them are Yandere? Good job Hetalia!

    Hungary isnt Yandere. She’s actually a fujoushi. She’s only manic here because her husband Austria is getting his ass kicked. Plus, Prussia and her are childhood friends so she knows JUST how to scare him.. Plus she wants Roddie’s vital regions back so they can get to baby making.

      Yeah, but she appeared for all of… two seconds or so total. Though I guess that is an appearance.

    These are officially one of my two favourite episodes. I really do love the frying pandangle, and seeing this strip animated made my day.

    There are actually quite a few girls in hetalia, but they haven’t been animated. Frankly I think they should be. *shrugs* ah well.

    Ep 14’s already out and subbed. It scares me.

      Raws are usually out quickly after it airs on the web (audio in a day after the mobile air date, though once someone managed to transfer the video from their phone…) and someone posts the sub in an hour.

      I suppose it’s that the subs aren’t appearing on the usual channels. I wait for Rumbel’s subs because I trust them but it’s clear now that Hetalia isn’t following the standerd pattern that other anime do. Which just goes to prove the theory further that this isn’t an anime for anime fans

    On the girls of Hetalia… well, Belgium is certified to get more screen time in the anime… soon. XD Taiwan was featured in a drama cd, and Seychelles is going to be featured in the Gakuen Hetalia dating sim. I’m not sure what’s happening to Monaco and Vietnam, and nobody knows if New Zealand is a girl or boy. There’s 2 strips featuring a new micronation called Wy, and I kinda hope we’ll get to see more of her.

    And yes, Hungary is awesome. Kicking ass and scaring Prussia in bed. Yeah. (That sounded wrong, for some reason…)

      I’ve seen all the girls in fanart before. Yup, I do a little bit of research about Hetalia outside the anime and Belgium is definately my favourite of the character designs so I’m looking forward to seeing her

    Hungary happens to like beating Prussia up, they used to be rivals back when they were kids.

    Other than wanting to see her ex-husband molested by other men, no she’s not really what I’d call a yandere.

      Yeah, it’s definately more Yandere tendancies than full on Belarus-like Yandere

    HETALIA WOMEN ROCK!

    >Kiseki : belgium at episode 1 really looks like a boy, so no wonder everyone doesn’t think she’s a girl

    These Austrian Sucession episodes are definitely some of my favorites of the whole series.

    Okay, maybe some of that’s cuz I’m a mad Prussia fangirl, but still.

    Hungary really cracked me up in this because really, that’s pretty much how it went down. Austria was being pummelled by Prussia, Hungary shows up, and WHAM Prussia takes Silesia and leaves.

    Then, a few years later, a combined Austrio-Hungarian force goes to take back Silesia, and the whole mess starts over…OH GOD, EASTERN EUROPE. SETTLE DOWN.
