After a couple of short episodes of utterly comedy-free confusion, the third instalment of Axis Powers Hetalia actually made me smile. And it only mentioned pasta a couple of times. Progress!
In its own utterly stereotypical way, Italy's song about Germany was quite amusing, and between the cuckoo clocks and references to hyper-inflation there seemed to be a better mix of historical accuracy and daft comedy this time around. Still hardly a classic, and I continue to be baffled as to why Italy is portrayed in the way that he is, but oh well, it's better than nothing and has at least convinced me that this series of brief webcasts might not be a complete and utter waste of time.
