Hetalia Axis Powers - Episode 48

Episode forty-eight of Hetalia: Axis Powers begins with a game of Name That Tune hosted by Austria... seriously, answers in the comments if you know the classical piece being played, let's see how culturally aware you guys are...

Anyhow, that aside this particular episode is book-ended by the birth of Italy proper, as Chibitalia grows up (thank goodness) - A state of affairs which brings with it quite a shocking revelation for poor old Austria needless to say, and I'm sure he isn't the only one to be slightly freaked out by the nature of said changes. I feel a little dirty myself for having watched it, now I come to think of it.

Also featured in this episode is Italy nagging Germany to play football with him (to which I would humbly suggest that he tries his best to avoid proposing a penalty shoot-out at any juncture), Germany giving Italy a helmet for his own safety (a wise move indeed), and what could be the end for poor old England following some abortive experimentation with weapons (or was it all a hoax to fool the Germans? Who knows). Not a particularly funny episode to be honest (and it was a little too slapdash in throwing together its skits to really build anything worthwhile), but I suppose that's par for the course with Hetalia most weeks.
