Hetalia Axis Powers - Episode 14

A few comments during my coverage of Hetalia - Axis Powers thus far have left me realised that my knowledge of world history really isn't as hot as I perhaps thought, leaving my watching this series occasionally akin to sitting through Akira with your grandparents.

Still, episode fourteen worked well enough for me - After a brief segment featuring Italy escaping from Germany to go and chat up women, we enter a wonderful "German simulator" spoof advertisement, for a game that allows you to "enjoy" the frustrations of being a German in everyday life. In all honesty this simulator could have been subtitled "Why the European Union will never work", being as it was largely a broader coverage of pan-European foibles and stereotypes, including an appearance from Spain and Greece which left me complaining "that just isn't true" inbetween my giggles. "If you buy it now it comes with special shocking images for free!" was the icing on the cake that really cracked me up. If only every episode of Hetalia was like this, for this particular instalment was a thoroughly entertaining five minutes.
