Hetalia Axis Powers - Episode 47

The latest episode of Hetalia: Axis Powers begins with a brief reappearance for Chibitalia, for reasons that I can't quite fathom - Indeed, this instalment is book-ended by her, although at least in terms of the episode's closing few seconds there is a little more entertainment to be had.

Sandwiched between those appearances is England and France's attempts to get Poland onside with them prior to World War II kicking off, something which Poland is completely disinterested in - In Hetalia terms, this means that Poland is more interested in pink things and ponies, which I would imagine is a slightly offensive depiction if you're actually Polish. There's also a brief segment showing America's growth while left alone by England for a while, which I think has already been pretty well-covered already in all honesty (but maybe I'm just a bitter and twisted Englishman).

Still, not being Polish means I did get a bit of a laugh out of said country's depiction, which made for a mildly entertaining episode of Hetalia: Axis Powers - Which is pretty much all you can ask of an episode of this series, truth be told.

When Poland was invaded by Germany in WWII, they faced off against German soldiers and tanks with their own army. On horseback.

Needless to say, it did not go well.

The REAL fact is that Germany forces in 1939 used as much horses as Poland and any other nation in that period. It was just germ propaganda to show rest of the world that Poland was so weak nation that it had to attack tanks with cavalry.

Read more historical books instead of watching anime :)
