Hetalia Axis Powers - Episode 33

Ever been to a cafe or restaurant and hated every second of your visit? Just this kind of issue is what bookends this latest episode of Hetalia: Axis Powers.

Of course, the firs of those two cafes is run by none other than Germany, whose rather strict tone and rules are never exactly likely to endear him to his patrons. On the flip side of that coin, Spain's incessant chatter to a depressed customer does little to help matters either.

Away from that, we see Germany and Italy camped out on the front lines in Africa, where they seem to be doing rather a lot of retreating. To help the situation (with an alarming degree of success) Italy wishes on a shooting star, although Germany's attempts to do likewise are asking rather too much of a single star....

All in all, this is probably the funniest episode of Hetalia: Axis Powers we've been granted in a while - Not hugely laugh out loud funny perhaps, but consistently amusing enough to raise a few smiles and chuckles while keeping my attention for the scant few minutes of its running time.
