Have you ever heard of that anime Axis Powers Hetalia(APH)? Well I found out about it through my little sister. She's thirteen and she apsolutely loved this show she's told me all about it, and it's fandom. After that introduction you can probably guess what this is about. One day my sister was going off to her friends house and was finishing up on the computer we both shared. My little sister told me good bye and ran out the door excited to finally see her friends for the first time this summer. Grabbing the computer from the couch I blinked in confusion. My sisters DeviantArt account was still up. I will admit at the time I thought it may have just been a mistake, but it was unlikely knowing my sister covered her tracks very carefully when on DeviantArt. I was suprised when I read the screen. "Axis Powers Hetalia Secret Episode Link." My eyebrows rose. Hetalia was just ending, the final part of the series had already come out. A secret episode just seemed unlikely. I browsed the comments. Apparently someone had made a journal with just "Axis Powers Hetalia Secret Episode Link" as a title and a link to youtube in the body. Scrolling down I read through the comments. Apparently this secret episode was amazing. Atleast...Atleast that's what the comments told me. Eventually I scrolled down to a peculiar comment.
The comment was nothing but numbers, symballs, and the word don't the numbers gave the illusion that there was a
computer error in postion the message. That little voice we all have in our head now and then asked me;
I ignored it and continued scrooling through the comments of enthused fanboys and fangirls rant on about how amazing this 'secret episode' was. Each comment was nearly exactly the same though.
"This episode was amazing you should watch it!"
"So amazing watch it!"
Every single comment called the video amazing, and told the reader to watch it. To my suprise there was no mention of the word 'Awesome' a common word in the Hetalia fanbase yet not one mention of it. I eventually let my curiousity take the better of me. I'd watched APH before with my little sister and it wasn't bad. Italy was my favorite and at the time I saw no harm in watching what part of history Italy and his friend would be reinacting this episode. Without a second thought I scrolled back up and clicked the link. Instead of being sent to a screen that said "You are now leaving deviantART.com. Be warned! Out there be monsters. If this is what you intended, then follow the link below. " It went straight to a youtube video in full screen. The begining Hetalia sequence began as normal with the normal tune but after that it didn't fade into a happy bright scene, with cheery music, no. My screen faded in to a dull scene of what seemed to be the outside of Germany's house, there was no music playing. After a couple seconds of nothingness I start to think 'Maybe the video froze.' Taking this possibily into consideration I try moving my mouse. It worked. According to the load bar the video wasn't frozen, but I did see something unusual. Normal Hetalia episodes last for about five minutes, but this 'secret' episode lasted thirty. Suddenly the sound of crunching footsteps filled my speakers. The camera moves and is now facing a dully colored Italy and Japan. It was odd not seeing Germany with them but it was Germany's house they were walking to so maybe they were going to go get him. "Ve..." The normally happy-go-lucky voice of Italy Feliciano came out uncharacterstically depressing and choked. Japan shot a look to Italy with a glare on his face though Italy didn't notice. Japan turned back to face the camera and the look on his face made me stop. It was filled with hatred, sadness, desperation, and the emotion convade most on his face was...fear. Those emotion. Those emotions don't go with APH they just don't. Japan reached out to the camera and turned his hand as if he were opening a door. The camera angle changed to the personal perspective of Japan which did in fact prove he had opened the door to Germany's home. I hadn't realised it till now as I had been taking in the darkened veiw of Germany's house but Italy had started smilling again. The same innocent eye closed smile which normally filled my own heart with warmth caused chill's to run down my back.
The Italian cheered running to Germany's kitchen. Still in Japans view I heard a slight rustle. Looking down it was revealed that Japan had a small video camera stashed away in his pants pocket. Japan looked both ways as if he were looking to makesure no one was around.
'To make sure Italy wasn't around.'
The paranoid voice in my head typed up. To my suprise Japan begand to speak in a slow drawled out tone as if he had injured his tounge.
He stared at the camera horrified.
"Itary has gone crazy! He kirred are arries." (Italy has gone crazy! He killed are allies)
Suddenly Japan and his camera dropped to the ground. Zooming out the screen then focus's on an Italy who is completely shadowed and seem's to be holding something in his hand. At this point I held my breathe.
'What had happened to Japan?'
I questioned myself.
What was Italy holding?'
If this were anyother instance I would guess he was holding a simple bowl of pasta like he always did, but deep down I knew the explanation to whatever Italy was holding would be much, much more sinistor than anything I could imagine.
"Let's make pasta Japan!"
The mans voice never lost that childlike sing song tone as he slowly stepped into the light. Gasping I gripped my computer in shock and tightly shut my eyes. In Italy's hand was...was holding the head of Germany! Germany his bestfriend! Noodels we're coming out from the head and Italy place one in his mouth and slurped loudly. The camera once again zoomed out, Japan still lay on the floor but something was different about his body. There was a puddle of blood forming around him, and sticking from his head was a fork. I nearly gagged as I watched Italy try to pull the fork out. Deeming his attempt unsuccessfull, Italy stomped his foot on Japan's head.
Finally the fork broke free from the Japanesse mans head and Italy began to use it to...eat the noodels that came out of the decapitated Germanys head. Nothing else happened until Italy finished eating. He presed his lips against the forhead of what was left of Germany. Suddenly I was looking face to face with the crazy Italian. And insane grin ripped his face yet he didn't close his eye's like with his normall smile, no he kept his eyes right on mine.
"They didn't want to make pasta anymore. None of them did."
My computer went black. Letting out the biggest sigh of relief I leaned back in my chair.
"What the fuck."
I mumbled under my breathe. My screen flash's and I jump. I'm now watching what seems to be a black and white film.
"F-Fratello? Feli? STOP! NO!"
Horror covers my face as I watch Italy brutally attack Romano and then Spain. I tried to exit out, or to close my computer, anything that would get me out of it, and I was forced to watch every country even the one's I didn't know were in Hetaalia die one by one by the hand of the 'useless' Italian. Each time a nation was killed a flag would appear. After Italy had brutally killed every country there was a flash of his old self holding a white flag between Japan and Germany.
"In every white flag there is also a blood stain."
With those words my computer made a screeching noise and shut itself off. I stayed away from the computer for about an hour after that but eventually I got bored and turned it back on. When I did it seemed to be open to paint and there was a horrifying picture. Italy was brutally beaten his skin ripped and slasshed hanging off of his bone. The other countries circled him. At the bottom of the picture in red, white, and green text there were the words.
"I just wanted us to all eat pasta and get along."
