Yeah I’m still blogging this show.
I said what my plans for with Hetalia back in this post but I’m sure many of those who read my Hetalia posts don’t read any other posts. Certainly not a boring status update anyway. What I’m doing from now on is following the Hetalia subs done by Rumbel Subs, who also happen to provide DDL for those of you who hate torrenting. I realise that means I’m about 2 episodes behind the regular releases but that’s preferable to raging over the other subs that are available. Now what could happen is that very few people read these posts because I’m a few weeks behind but I’m hopeful that that won’t happen. The only thing I do plan to change is include a brief description of what happened in the episode to remind those of you who are a few episodes ahead which episode this was. Hetalia episodes have a tendency to mesh together in your head anyway, what with the total lack of cohesion between them.
Right, enough of that, back to blogging!
This was the episode where: Greece and Japan got angry, France and Spain fought over Chibiromano as Chibiromano himself got all sad because his brother was better than him at everything (except actually being interesting to watch in the show itself). Then France sent a fat bird on the attack.
(I think I might have fun writing these plot descriptions. Abridging the latest Hetalia episode makes the whole thing sound even more ridiculous than it already is)
…although, now that I’ve written that brief summery, I’m struggling to come up with something else to say. It doesn’t help that the episode started with Greece and Japan, who still don’t do anything worth commenting on. Chibiromano is a bit more interesting, delving into the history and the economic divide between the North and South. It’s a phenomenon that pretty much every country in the world has. Well, not North vs South obviously. For example, there’s the prosperous South of England vs the North. In Ireland it’s the East region around Dublin vs the bog land west where grass grows down the middle of the road. While it’s interesting to look at it from a Hetalia perspective (the brother who doesn’t get doted on because he’s not as talented) it’s not really that funny.
The only really funny part of the episode came from randomness. France sending his fat, annoying bird out on the rampage to pillage, rape and destroy. So I decided ‘hey, if Hetalia wants to use randomness to make people laugh, then so can I!’. So I created this.
