Hetalia Axis Powers - Episode 31

It's Christmas in the world of Hetalia: Axis Powers. Again. These guys really haven't managed to schedule their seasonal episodes very successfully, have they?

Anyhow, the entire subject matter for this particular mini-episode is how various countries celebrate Christmas, from the downright scary in the form of Russia through to the rather more health and safety-conscious plans of China and on to the hugely stereotypical treatment of France. Meanwhile, England seems to be avoiding the discussion entirely, for reasons I can't quite fathom - Is Christmas really that bad over here?

Anyhow, there were a few mildly amusing moments here (not least the mention of Germany's "research" for a discussion on beers of the world), but still not enough to bring us close to some of the better episodes that seemed to come out of the latter portion of Hetalia's first series. Still, there are worst ways to spend five minutes at the end of your day.

Wasn't it that England was hoping they would interview him, so he was wandering around after them, too tsundere to just go out and ask them to interview him??

Christmas in England isn't so bad. It's just that everywhere is closed, nothing but repeats shown on TV, bad public decorations...There's more but I can't think of anything else.
