Hetalia Axis Powers - Episode 25

Episode twenty-five of Hetalia: Axis Powers brings us a moment to focus upon poor old friendless England, who is left alone to allow his dislike for the rest of Europe to boil. It's almost as if people think that England doesn't like being part of the EU...

However, England gets a little respite from his troubles when he bumps into... Actually, I'm not sure who that was supposed to be. A little help here? Anyhow, said guest leads to the inevitable joke about British cooking and cuisine, although I can't help but feel outraged at the suggestion that fish and chips (with peas no less!) is "tasteless". I'd be a whole lot more outraged if that scene hadn't left me feeling really hungry for some good fish and chips. Damn.

With that out of the way, we return yet again to the relationships between Switzerland and Liechtenstein, with the former finding himself worrying about Austria far more than he would like to admit.

Okay, okay, so I did chuckle slightly at the joke about British food - That doesn't make me feel any less hungry for fish and chips though. With peas.... and lots of ketchup. Seriously, what's wrong with that Hetalia?!

That was young America. The idea being that the American diet/cuisene (sp) came mainly from England. The original comic ended with something like "And that's how two world powers came to have no taste in food."

Oh, and it's not that fish and chips with peas is bad in and of themselves (they aren't), it's that England is supposed to be a really, REALLY bad cook.
