looks promisingly offensive, but it certainly doesn't appear to be the most
offensive thing that could possibly be written as a comedy about World War II. No, for that, you'd have to have -- no, not Jerry Lewis,
that won't do. Say it was based on a comic that was originally a webcomic
. Say it was produced in one of the former Axis countries. And that it featured all of the major players as anthropomorphized stereotypes
of those countries. And that these stereotypes were all young, attractive men who spent a lot
of time with each other. Call it "Useless Italy" -- or, in Japanese, Hetalia: Axis Powers.
(Actually, it can be pretty funny; I am not one to merely LOLJAPAN, but I laughed at these. And at least the kids are getting interested in history,
right? [NSFW text.] See also: Afuganisu-tan.
