|Hetalia Episode Chronology|
Hetalia of the Dead - First Part (HETALIA OF THE DEAD/前編 ??) is the seventeenth episode of Hetalia: The Beautiful World, and the one hundred and seventeenth overall in the anime series Hetalia. It was broadcast on May 31, 2013. It adapted the first part of the Hetalia of the Dead chapter from Hetalia: Axis Powers Volume 5.
While watching an American horror movie, France complains to America that the characters in the latter's horror movies were too strong. America casually replies that his movies even had a woman who can destroy a donut shop bare-handed, thus scaring France.
Moments later, Germany shows up with other nations along with their horror movies in order to compare their movies and prove that America's ones were strange. Italy demands to watch his film first. France asks if it was a joke, but Germany tells him not to make light of Italy's movies, as it was "a chaotic bombardment of entrails and naked women". It is explained that Italian horror movies were typically erotic and gory, and that they tried to focus on visual stimulations.
China tries to put his film in, but it doesn't go in, for it is a video CD. In his film, China is shown as a Jiangshi biting Hong Kong, which America comments as "comical". China also states that he makes some scary supernatural ones too and shows a dark spirit, much to France's horror. It is said that the Chinese people made fun of their horror movies by combining crazy, scary characters and actions that only China was capable of. Also, in these days, they make dark, depressing movies that use too-intense visuals.
Japan's horror film is shown next, which scares Italy, while Germany describes it as "frightening". Nevertheless, America says that it made him anxious, and gives out solutions like "pushing the ghost back into the TV", much to Japan's discomfort. In the note, Japan's horror movies are said to be strangely gloomy and that they contained gloomy characters, sooty backgrounds, hard-to-make-out ghosts, vague expressions.
While so, Finland's movie comes next. It shows a scary Santa being excavated and naked Santas everywhere. This makes a frightened Italy yelling that Santa was a good person.
Spain happily introduces his horror movies, but is quickly cut off by England, who asks if he was going to traumatize everyone. However, Italy still wants to see, only to be really traumatized. The narrator then explains that many Spanish horror mentally stabbed the watchers, just as a ghost appears on a mirror, very close to Italy.
