Hetalia Axis Powers - Episode 23

Episode twenty-three of Hetalia: Axis Powers introduces us to yet another new country/character - This time around it's Liechtenstein, a tiny country sandwiched between Austria and Switzerland, and in the context of this particular anime's parlance we see a cute female Liechtenstein both relying on and wanting to be like her big brother Switzerland in every way (yet still looking distressed when she's mistaken for a boy).

Italy hogs the limelight with some throw-away hilarity for the remainder of the episode - First mentioning a disgusting pizza he ate before revealing (quelle surprise) that it was made by England, before sharing a bed with his brother and making a phone call to Germany that could (and in this case was) misconstrued in all the wrong ways. Yes, I have a filthy mind too so it made me chuckle.

Yet again, what we have here is another improved episode of Hetalia, complete with a couple of gags that made me laugh - What more can you ask for in a five minute running time?

Did you not recognise Switzerland being played by Romi Paku (FMA's Ed) and Liechtenstein being played by Rie Kugimiya (Al)? this is the 2nd show they've been family (Oh! Edo Rocket had Rie Kugimya calling Romi Paku's character Onee-san when drunk one ep so that almost counts as the 3rd), they work so well together.
