Hetalia World Series - Episode 12

HOORAY FOR MORE HISTORICAL STRIPS!!!!

AND THIS EPISODE HAS FEATURED THE BAD TOUCH FRIENDS TRIO!!!! AND THEY LOOK SO AWESOME!!! YAAAAAAAAYY!!!!

The whole episode is based on the Maria Theresa and the War of Austrian Succession strips. Some interesting historical articles related to it could be read here or here.


Did they intentionally make Roderich's boss look and sound similar to Elizaveta? xD It's like it would become difficult to imagine Roderich to be with any other woman aside from her or someone who looks similar to her xD Hehehe...

Speaking of look alikes, one of Gilbo's men looks like him too:


And he even has a look alike from another series, at least to my eyes:

This is Zen from Akagami no Shirayukihime and it's an official illustration of Zen wearing some pirate costume that surprisingly looks similar to Gilbo's military uniform during this episode's timeline xD They look so alike that.... Gilbo's just the older and more insane/naughty/wild version of Zen xD Hehehehe... and of course they're both my top favorite characters xD (Arthur and Gilbo are a tie to me)

Speaking of my other top favorite:

OH HIM AND HIS EVIL SMIRK xD

While Gilbo did his quick version of his evil laugh (I think he'll be doing a louder, crazier, and longer version of his evil laugh on the next episode xD Can't wait to laugh! xD):

MY FAVORITE BAD BOYS IN ONE EPISODE! SWEET =3

Back to the episode:

GILBO USED GILBIRD AS HIS MESSENGER xD AND IT'S CIRCLING AROUND AS THE RECEIVERS READ IT xD LOLz
GILBO IS THE BEST LOVE LETTER WRITER. He greets, congratulates, threatens, annoys, and gives love in just one letter. BWAHAHAHAHHA xD I can't stop laughing that the "From Gilbert WITH LOVE" is has been emphasized in the anime xD

Because of this, this made Roderich anxious:

Roderich: Gilbert has occupied my vital regions!!!
The infamous "vital regions" line xD Bwahahahahahahahahaahahha!!!!!!! It has made the fans worldwide laugh so hard, and hearing it doesn't make it less funny xD Hahahahaha!


His citizens are more concerned about the music than the war though. Even Roderich agrees with them.
MUSIC>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>WAR
But their empress persuaded them to focus on the war thing.


So the war between these European nations begin. I don't get why the anime still censors Holland even though he has a character design now.
About the narrator of this episode, I love the part when she tried to sound rough to imitate Glbo's attitude xD Cool cool~


It's three against three, but for now we'll only get to see Roderich with one of his allies, who is Arthur. This punk would fight alongside with anyone who are enemies of Francis xD Hahahaha! I love this observation of Himaruya of the WTFLOLzness of history xD Hehe.

Now about the ending theme, as expected, it was Kiku's turn!

Oh please please it's the turn of the Allied Forces next time xD Or at least don't reuse the same image =D


EXTRA

I have updated the Character Songs Post with Hetalia Ondo (a movie theme song sang by the main characters) and Grandpa Rome's song, movie version. The first one is ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE while the second one is TOTALLY HILARIOUS!!!! xD I hope more characters follow Gilbo's example on making songs that are rock/metal, hahahahaha!

AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sorry about that.
You have NO IDEA how many times I DIED watching this episode. When I saw that Gilbird I was laying on the floor laughing XD

But the Bad Ass *cough* Bad Touch *COUGH* BAD FRIENDS TRIO, looked really sexy in that opening pic.

And even if I'm not an Arthur fan, I admit, his smile at the end was very hot >_>

Sadly, my computer crashed right as I was posting this,(I do not even care, that gawd awesome WA WA song made grin ear to ear. I demand dance moves to this. BTW Has Arthur always sounded so SEXY?? ;3) so I will just summarize this time! xD

Yes, they DO look alike~
I thought that the bird was France's at first, and was surprised to find out it was sooo small. Then, I understood.
Maybe Holland is not in it because it was animated early, but I think it is because they want it to be similar to the actual comic, and Hima-sama may make changes, but I do not know how close Hima-san and the director of the anime are, soo...

!!♥~BAD TOUCH YES~♥!! And Arthur, WHY SO HOT??
haha, this post is still long! But I thank you guys for making my life so joyous. So very joyous! xD

Maria Theresa and Elizaveta sound similar because they have the same seiyuu xD (If my eyes read well)
