Hetalia: Axis Powers - Season 1 - Episode 20 - Review: "Episode 17"

America gets a nice bit of focus early on this time around as we see him going through his closet storage cleaning phase and having all sorts of memories. Since he hasn't done it in over a hundred years, there's a lot of good and bad in there. It's cute to see a young America child at home with England and getting some presents from him, showing their good relationship. When it moves forward some and we see England trying to get him to dress better and act more appropriate, it doesn't go quite so well. And there's also the memories of the revolutionary war that the two had which changed their relationship some, but seems to have worked out better in the long run.

The piece I love the most in the series so far, outside of numerous Italy scenes, is anything involving Roman Empire. It's really the only character that has a manly feel about him and stands tall with no real issues surrounding him, outside of the obvious disappearance. But that's in the past, much like America's memories, and the present is here as we see the allies making an all out attack on the axis. Italy's priceless as he's instantly waving a white flag and doing his best not to get hit. It's an amusing fight that turns surreal for a minute, so much so that it actually brings pause to the fight for at least a few minutes while everyone tries to figure it out, to no avail. We get so close to some really good fighting and comedy that I'd normally be annoyed at this kind of interruption, but it was just right and made me laugh at the absurdity of it all.
