The pairing is sometimes called AmeCan, taken from the first few letters of their nation names (America and Canada).
The First Meeting
The first meeting of the brothers first appeared in the original webcomic when England decided it was time for the two to meet. When the two finally did meet, America decided he got bored of Canada and left.
After getting beat by Cuba again, Canada decided to go tell America off. When he finally confronts him, however, he finds America holding a chainsaw. Not wanting to anger him, Canada mumbles through his rant and starts talking about things like the weather. America suddenly turns towards him with the chainsaw running, and Canada stutters something about being best friends. America tries to explain that he couldn't hear him over the chainsaw, but Canada cuts him off with his "best buddy" rant.
One day, Canada whines to Kumajirou about never getting noticed. For once, Kumajirou actually remembers Canada's name, and explains that he should find something to show that he's Canada. Taking his advice, he paints a maple leaf on his forehead. He goes to show-off to America, who suddenly smashes a sticker of the American flag over his maple leaf. When Canada asks what happened, America tells him he "Just got awesome is all".
