** The fact that although England and America's relationship are brought up as are: Japan and China's, Lithuania and Poland's, Poland and Germany's, Russia and Lithuania's, but...even in the darker manga we never hear of Spain's relationship to Latin America and in fact the only one who's ever seen is Cuba and even then he only interacts with America (in hatred) and Canada (in friendship). And yet we see such countries as Australia, Hong Kong, Camaroon, India, the Sychelles, and even [[PlayedForLaughs freaking SEALAND...]] but [[AbsenteeActor no Latin America.]] One must wonder why the author chose to leave out Latin America...even as far as avoiding any mention of what happened there. (Spain's dominance as one of the strongest countries was by default [[BadassDecay equally glossed over inexplicably]]) This problem was [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] twice in the Hetalia Bloodbath 2011 first, when the Sychelles (I think) seems to forget what part of the world Cuba is from and says, "We show a lot of cleavage in the West and Africa, but they don't really wear open-chested clothes in Asia. Huh, Mr. Cuba? Huh?" To which Cuba smiles uncharacteriscally and responds, "Why are you asking me this?" The second time...goes like this: (and no, Cuba doesn't call Spain [[WhatTheHellDad "dad"]] or even [[AloofBigBrother "big brother"]] and they never bring up Cuba's [[CanonDisContinuity missing siblings)]]

* In the manga, Spain captures North Italy from Austria and prepares to fight a duel with him with his intimidating [[AnAxeToGrind battle axe.]] Austria tries to dissuade him, "Never thought I'd face you on a battlefield, so be kind and give Italy back." It's especially saddening for Austria seeing as how all his former friends and now even his former "husband" turned against him [[WeUsedToBeFriends (they were married under the House of Hapsburg)]]. But Spain refuses saying that now he has a French king so France is kind of his boss now and that since everyone's turning against Austria, he doesn't think Austria is capable of taking care of Italy anymore. Plus, he wants to reunite the brothers since he already has South Italy. Soon, North Italy [[PleaseSpareHimMyLiege begs his "Big Brother" Spain]] not to attack Austria and to untie him. Spain then imagines a [[WhatCouldHaveBeen happy life together]] with the two Italies, [[FondMemeoriesThatCouldHaveBeen "When this is over, you can be with me forever!]] We'll be together day and night...Oh, it'll be heaven!" But as soon as North Italy's untied, he goes running to an equally confused Austria. And cue Spain's HeroicBSOD. Fortunately though...he snaps out of it, smiles, and decides to let Italy go back with Austria wishing them a [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy happy life together.]] And the most heartwrenching of all is the [[http://www.hetarchive.net/scanlations/nonlinear.php?mrt last panel]] when Austria and Italy are looking at the night sky and they remember Spain and Austria thinks, [[BittersweetEnding "Took me three days to forget that joyous face of yours..."]] right until [[MoodWhiplash "Nice Bananas"]] and in the epilogue we see Spain back home with South Italy crying.

* And how did we get this far without mentioning [[http://aph.starry-sky.com/c_n0.html THIS strip??]] You know, China and Japan's main story! How can the last half of this, from the moon gazing to the betrayal to the bar scene, not make you tear up? Of course [[SlasherSmile Russia]] ruined the sad moment, but still! China had already had a long and painful history to go through, but it's implied that what Japan did is what broke him in the end.

* This troper found [[http://aph.starry-sky.com/chrismas_bonsai5.html this strip]] about Prussia saddening it tells [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation something]] [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds different]] about him.
** And if you think about it the end of Prussia which is portrayed well in this [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PfpUWL1GK9I video]], but Hidekaz Himaruya made it better in the strips, as he's alive, but he just lost his status.
* Did anyone else start feeling bad for Romano and just want to give him a hug while telling him it'll be alright after reading [[http://aph.starry-sky.com/files/srm8.gif this strip]]? Especially with that face he made as he watches his brother draw?

* This troper cannot stand the strip [[http://aph.starry-sky.com/v2_058.html where Russia is asking for advice from France's radio show]] given [[IJustWantToHaveFriends Russia's enormous desire of making friends]]. Specially when every time the subject is wring up he mentions that [[InsaneTrollLogic his bosses advice him to use force]] and his constant failures at it (''specially'' with the Italy Brothers) are just heartbreaking.

*** Back to the Revolutionary War, how much does it hurt England? Enough for him to feel wretched each year for the week before the 4th of July. He admits this on America's birthday as the explanation of why he didn't come to any of his birthdays before (despite giving him a unicorn for his bicentennial), and America's reaction is to laugh and make a rather tasteless joke saying that ''he'', America, is not only always looking forward to that day but has visions of England's pathetic crying face for a week before the date which cheers him up.

** To this troper, it does make it [[FridgeHorror worse upon remembering that they are personifications of countries as well.]] Showing this shows how the countries are dying or [[AssimilationPlot being assimilated]] because they [[CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot didn't worked together]] until the end.

** This troper thought the original with "great", instead of "big", was worse because it meant [[spoiler: that England was great because he was his own country, but that he has independce that they're both as vurnerable as opposed to him being as big.]]

** "Nations can get very busy with diplomatic talks, fights and being commanded around by their bosses, and so it can be very hard for them to get close to anybody outside of the battlefield or politics." This was always a topic that was hinted at but never truly shown... until now. The fact that they used chibi![[spoiler: America]] to demonstrate makes it worse.

* [[http://hetascanlations.tumblr.com/post/101431568050/blog-update-private-concert "Private Concert"]], which may be one of Hetalia's few {{Wham Episode}}s. Prussia plays the flute for Germany at random, which Germany admits is actually pretty good. Prussia then insists on Germany playing it with him, which Germany doesn't think he can do. Then he notices that a dog had bitten Prussia's hand. He scolds the dog and assures Prussia that it'll [[GoodThingYouCanHeal just heal itself]]...but then the dog thinks the following to himself...
-->'''Dog:''' But...wait, [[WhamLine didn't I bite him a week ago?]]

**** And while we haven't actually seen much of England's siblings, [[RonTheDeathEater they're likely nowhere near as mean as some fans would believe, and are hints they really do love their brother.]]
