Axis Powers Hetalia - Episode 41

I couldn't figure out what strips they were based until someone mentioned them. Thanks!

This had been a very very fun episode~ Alfred's the biggest idiot in this episode (Bwahaha!), while Feliciano's the biggest moe fanservice (Kyaaa~). Ludwig had been lovable too (Daaw~)! And oh Ivan (Yay Cold War reference!)~ Kiku made a brief appearance. And more importantly, two pretty rare events happened in this episode: Feliciano's eyes and ARTHUR + FRANCIS WORKING TOGETHER!!! IN BLACK SUITS! SO HIALRIOUSLY SMEXY!!! YESSSS!!!

( UPDATED: Done~)


=== WAKING UP ===
We know that Hetalia is full of randomness, but this part is seriously the most random one of all:

But there's something rare in this particular randomness . . .

Do you notice it now? . . .

YES!!! THE EYES!!! HE OPENED HIS EYES!!!!!!!!!!

AND OH MY GOD HE'S SO CUTE!!!!!

Feliciano: Ve~

== AMERICA'S TACTIC OF STEPPING ON THE ENEMY'S WILL ==

[ STEP ON JAPAN'S WILL ]
It's about America's Mt. Fuji Legend. I'm not sure if it's true or just a rumor, but either way, top officials could also be childishly ridiculous. Haha!

Alfred's Boss: Hey, when do you lose the will to do anything?

Alfred: When the goddess of freedom becomes worn out.
Alfred's Boss: Exactly! It's in the symbol!

Alfred's Boss: Let's paint Japan's Mt. Fuji red! Surely, even the Japanese would lose their will if we do that!
Alfred: Oooh~

Alfred's Boss: With that said, we've arrived in front of Mt. Fuji
Alfred: Wow~ it's really pretty!
Alfred's Boss: It's huge!

Alfred: Alright, let's do our best!
Kiku: Our trees are in danger so please stop that.

I believe a 5 year old will be able to see the impossibility of that idea at once! But Alfred's silly, and he's superhuman, so nothing's impossible for him and he'll do anything for justice. Hahaha!

[ STEP ON RUSSIA'S WILL ]
During the Cold War, America gave out XL-sized condoms to Russia so that the citizens would lose their confidence. There was a legend of Russia's returned goods being too small. It totally backfired. Haha! (Oh gawd you men. Size matters that much? Hahaha!)

Alfred's Boss: You! Order big amounts of 25 cm condoms from Russia!
Alfred: Okay! I got it!

Alfred: Ivan, can you make me some 25cm condoms?
Ivan: Eeh?! I haven't made condoms that size before!

Alfred: My boss says Ivan can do it. C'mon, please~
Ivan: It's going to be hard but I'll do my best. Hmmm, don't expect anything from me though.

Someone: Hey! It's some stuff from Ivan!
Alfred: Ah! Oh!

Alfred: Did you order something really small?
Alfred's Boss: Whoa! Extra small . . . what I said was 25cm . . .

This condoms thing makes me doubt if Hetalia is really still PG. But ah well, there are even advertisements of condoms on TV. I just wish kids won't be too curious about them.

== FRANCIS ONII-CHAN'S INFORMATION MANIPULATION ACTIVITIES ==
Author's Notes:
All through the war England and France made up horror stories and leaked them to the rest of the world, which actually worked very well to stirring up outside criticism against Germany. Some of the tales of German wickedness that still circulate today originated
as English and French propaganda and were formally apologized for following the war.
Incidentally, when simple 'ol America heard the variety of "Germany's (fake) Tales of Evil (by France and England)" he shouted "I won't forgive someone who does rotten things like that!" and rushed over to support England.
I wish the part with Alfred was illustrated. I like the "rushing to support Arthur" part. Ohohohoho~

Anyway, I didn't remember the strip it was based from the preview screencaps because they were IN BLACK! They weren't in black in the webmanga, and I'm happy that the anime did. They're more smexy spy-like. And I freakin' love the background music! Made me laugh more! Hahaha! Now onto their "mission":

Francis: Well, I may as well spread some terrible rumors about Ludwig.

Arthur: Don't do intelligence operations just to kill time.

Francis: Hey, did you hear? Ludwig's been doing some really vicious stuff behind the scenes..
Someone 1: Oh my gosh! So scary!

Arthur: Hey, Ludwig is . . .*whispers*
Someone 2: What?!
ONE OF MY FAVORITE ARTHUR SCENES! He looks so cool with shades there~

Francis: Nahahahaha!

Francis: Now terrifying rumors about Ludwig will start to gradually make their way around.

Arthur: Ah, having tried it, this plan seems to work surprisingly well.

Francis: That so~
Arthur: Uh-huh. So...

Arthur: Now, let's think of some for Feliciano!
Francis: EH? Wait a minute!

Francis: I know he's kind of dumb. And he's weak and useless. But he's not a bad person! He really isn't!!!!

Francis: Seriously, he's not a bad person. *cries* He's not a bad person
Arthur: W-what's the matter, Francis?
I love Francis' ghey crying~

Chibi Francis: Crazy violent potato Krauts! *repeats*
Arthur: Speaking of which, Francis kept insistently ragging on Ludwig, but. .

Chibi Feliciano: Ve! Ve! Ve!
Chibi Francis: Well, you're kinda dumb. Yup.
Arthur: Although made fun of Feliciano for being dumb, he didn't say much else.

Non-chibi version of thinking Arthur~

Arthur: Ah, whatever.

Arthur: I'll spread some bad rumors about Ludwig to Feliciano.
MOST HANDSOME ARTHUR LOOK IN THE EPISODE!!

Arthur: Hey Feliciano! Ludwig told me he hates you.
Feliciano: EH?!

Arthur: Yeah, he said it was because you're a daft, useless bloke and you can't do anything by yourself. He doesn't want you to hang out at his house anymore, apparently.

Arthur, dearest. Don't you know that he's more hurt on the "I hate you" part than with all the insults on him? Haha!

Arthur: So you should stop paling around with-

Feliciano: Ludwig, do you hate me?
Ludwig: Huh?
Arthur: You're going to go right up and ask him?!!!!!
He's that direct, Arthur dear~

Ludwig: *heartbeat*

Feliciano: Ve . . . *sad version*

Non-chibi version of Ludwig being asked-such-a-question-all-of-a-sudden

Ludwig: Hmm, well, see. I do not . . .hate you . . hmm.

Feliciano: Really? I'm so happy!
Arthur's WTF eyes are still visbile behind the shades! Hahaha!

Arthur: Hehehehehe . . . *insane version*
Francis: Hang in there.
Daaaaww . . . Francis cheering his rival up~

Arthur: I feel extremely frustrated somehow.
Francis: That pair is so chummy. They get on my nerves.

== READING THE ATMOSPHERE ==
This is one of my favorite cute jokes in Hetalia EVER!

Alfred: I was told to read the atmosphere but I don't know which bookstore has it.

Feliciano: I was told to read it too!


Feliciano: I was told to read it too! Let's look together!!

OH THESE TWO LITTLE IDIOTS!!!! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!
And to think that my top favorite bishie is half American and Italian. . . .
CAN'T HELP IT!!!! THIS KIND OF SILLINESS IS ADORABLE!!!!!!
BWAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA!!!!!!!!


~ As usual, other parts will be up later ~


Notes:
~ Translations are based on scanlations; so credits on those goes to the respective translators. Some are slightly edited though based on what I understand of the anime changes.
~ It's awkward to go fangurl over nation names so I use their human names:
[ NAME LEGEND ] Alfred (America), Arthur (England), Francis (France), Ivan (Russia), Kiku (Japan), Feliciano (Italy), Ludwig (Germany)

*squeals* OMG, FELI WITH HIS EYES OPEN! <333333 Woah, he really looks like a happy Lovino. I think it's better for Feli to have his eyes different than Lovi most of the time so people don't get confused.

But asdhfklasjdhfkasdf, I exploded after seeing his eyes open in the anime. 8'D

Okaaaay~ Adding this to my list of favorite episodes. x'D Did I mention I love how you have screenshots from the episode with some translations? ILU FOR THAT. x'D

... Adding this to my list of favorite episodes. 8'D

But when my friend said that the condom thing would be in this, I thought she was talkinga bout the one with Alfred and Arthur where Arthur asks for a "rubber" and gets a condom from Alfred. xD;
