Added DiffLines:

** While England may usually neglect to go to America's birthdays for obvious reasons, he did send him presents, or at least he sent him one for his bicentennial: a unicorn. Despite all the vitriol and nagging, he still thinks America kept his childhood innocence.


** Pretty much anytime England shows a kinder side to his personality and smiles, especially noticeable when he's around America whom he [[ShipTease may or may not]] have feelings for. Also, in the April Fools Day comic, England comments that America's waiter outfit looks good on him. In the Halloween 2011 comic, America calls England out specifically to dress up with him because England was the first to follow him on Twitter.

In the Halloween 2011 comic, America calls England out specifically to dress up with him because England was the first to follow him on Twitter.Twitter... and England, despite having come dressed as Sherlock Holmes, the character of his favourite author, agrees to dress up - as Robin to America's Batman.
** America and England's first meeting. England and France go to the New World to follow rumours of one of their kin over there and see the blonde blue eyed toddler in the prairie. They decide to let the boy pick who to live with, by a cooking competition. While America can't hide France's food just tastes better, when he sees England crumble into a TroubledFetalPosition as losing sinks in, America first gets teary-eyed then goes to England, puts a tiny hand on England's knees and asks if England is ok.
** Shortly after, England is walking in the prairie, holding a sleeping or sleepy America and muttering as if telling him a story, while we hear England's thoughts as he [[DeclarationOfProtection promises to protect the little boy]], [[HarsherInHindsight raise him right]] and give him a better childhood than England ever knew (him being a child in the late Antiquity/early Middle Ages after all).
** During World War II, deployed on a mission together, England and America get their rations at the same time. England offers to give his ice-cream to America saying he doesn't want it.
*** America immediately brightens up and thanks him for it, even breaking a leg in the hurry to get there. He's shown in a hospital with a cast, eating the ice-cream, with England by his bedside.

Added DiffLines:

** China's character song, ''Aiyaa! Four thousand years''/''Aiyaa! Yonsennen'' (a TearJerker lamenting the bloodshed wars and pain China has seen in that time as well as recalling how he raised Japan) ends with a quote that may well sum up the whole series: "Even if our countries are different, our words are different, and even we ourselves are different, I want to look up at the same moon as you."


** [[LonelyAtTheTop "Friendless" England]] having a character song dedicated to his magical friends. True, the fact that he can see them is often PlayedForLaughs, but he does care about them and they care about him too, enough to turn the resident {{Tsundere}} into {{Adorkable}}. And the song itself ("My friends/Ore no tomodachi") is nothing but SweetDreamsFuel too. He brings up the brownie (a type of fairy known for helping around houses unseen) as being shy around everyone except England, the pixies dancing in group, and the unicorn always keeping him, England, company when he feels lonely. (Add to that, the unicorn is indeed in the coat of arms of the UK... representing ''Scotland''. This just adds to the aforementioned AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther moment with Arthur Conan Doyle.)

* This Troper is new to the series, so he doesn't know how official this is, but a lot of fan art has portrayed Hong Kong and Taiwan in a way that is varies from utterly adorable to downright moving.[[http://gelbooru.com/index.php?page=post&s=view&id=500870 This image]] showcases China turning Hong Kong over to England, and has all the emotional turmoil of someone forced into separation from his family. And then Taiwan just...just read it for yourself. Doubles as a TearJerker.
* It's out of the webcomics and anime, but This troper is just so touched and gets such a huge smile from the Multilanguage videos (mostly of disney songs, and fandubbers from all over with their respective version of the Marukaite Chikyuu) on Youtube that feature the Hetalia characters...to the point of getting watery eyes, and shivers on her back; I'm serious. Without realizing, this fandom brought together people from all over the world to have fun, forget all of our differences and have a nice time. Or at least that's how this Troper sees it and feels it, with all her heart. it's absolutely wonderful :).
** You're not alone. The fandom gets a lot of hate, but aside from a few idiots, it genuinely is amazing. The fact that this silly little series has gotten so many people together is absolutely wonderful.



* People interested in other countries is wonderful to me.
* Another fandom example. Whenever this troper sees fanarts like [[http://www.zerochan.net/311864 this]], ones that feature nearly the whole lovable cast, it gives me that warm, fuzzy feeling inside.
