Hetalia Axis Powers - Episode 17

The last couple of episodes of Hetalia: Axis Powers have been teasing us about this American-centric episode, so at last here it is, although it only gives us part of the "America's storage cleaning" story arc promised.

Indeed, this portion of the episode gets shoved to one side for a while by America's attempts to diet after notice that his continuous consumption of hamburgers isn't really doing his weight much good. A suggestion that Americans are overweight? I've never heard such a scurrilous rumour...

That aside, the main part of the episode deals with America's reminiscences of its history with England, from the good times through to its rebellious teenage phase, before coming across a scratched old musket. I'm sure you can see where this is headed if you know your history...

Not a particularly funny episode all in all, so I'm not sure what to say about it - Perhaps its just that the "fat American" jokes feel a bit tired to me though, so your mileage may vary.
