Plot Summary[edit | edit source]
Lazy Japan's Anger[edit | edit source]
At first, Japan finds it hard to think of times he wasted money, though a memory of the United Nations ordering him to pay repair fees and a memory of a panda flash by. Suddenly, he recalls the price of eggs going up 60 yen, and furious puffs of smoke begin to emit from his head. Elsewhere, Turkey wonders why Greece is calling him on the phone and asking for his camera, but finds out that Japan became angry. He insists that Greece send him a copy of the picture and to tag him in the picture of facebook.
In the last shot, Greece and Japan sit on the hill. Japan mentions mikan oranges, but Greece has no clue what he means by it.
Running Away with Su-san[edit | edit source]
Finland narrates that he and Sweden used to live with Denmark. However, Denmark was stubborn and didn't like to listen to others, so Sweden became very rebellious and fled; Finland adds that he tagged along.
The two sit out in the wilderness, and Finland wonders what they'll do next. He mentions that, though he enjoys the freedom, he's scared of being surrounded by stronger nations and that he feels anxious. He hastily corrects himself by adding that he didn't mean Sweden made him feel anxious; Finland then suggests that they sleep, to which Sweden agrees. After shutting his eyes, Finland thinks about how he's scared and nervous when he's around Sweden.
Eventually, Finland supposes that Sweden isn't that bad; but when he opens his eyes, he sees Sweden lying next to him and becomes terrified by his stare. He nervously brings up the subject of the moon and the cold, though Sweden's brief responses and impassive expression only intimidate him more. Finland decides that it'll be impossible to live with Sweden and wonders if he should run off by himself. But this thought is cut off as Sweden scoots closer, wraps his arms around, and shares his blanket with Finland. When Sweden asks if he's warm, Finland responds that he's scared.
The narrator says Finland figured that Sweden wasn't bad after all and that it was simply a difficulty with communication. She also says that he found himself doubting and questioning this idea repeatedly. In the background, Finland laughs nervously while Sweden continues to stare at him.
