Hetalia: Axis Powers' latest episode deal with the enlightenment of Japan, as it moves from its previous state of isolation into a more open relationship with foreign powers.
Thus, this seismic shift in the country sees Japan at first shutting himself in and hiding himself away as France comes to visit, tempted only by the promise of a cute kitten (something which should perhaps be used more often in modern diplomacy... come on Iran, if you stop your nuclear programme we'll let you play with the kitten for a while!). Eventually however Japan gets over his previous aversion and tries to learn a little from France, albeit not too successfully if I'm honest.
That aside, this episode also sees Canada try a new way to get himself noticed, although to be frank anything Canada does is bound to be overshadowed when he hangs around with a cute, talking bear, which is far more interesting.
To be honest, by this point I'm never sure what to say about episodes of Hetalia any more - They aren't usually all that funny or anything, they're simply there. This instalment of the series was certainly there, that much I can confirm... it amazes me just how popular this show is to be honest, is it really worthy of another twenty-six short episodes once this current run (which has now been oddly elongated with big gaps between episode release dates) is over?
