Episode twenty-one of Hetalia: Axis Powers has managed to cement a place in my heart for one reason and one reason alone - It features Sealand at the centre of much of its subject matter!
Whilst it's a bit of a push to call it a country no matter what its owners might say, I've always held a bit of a curiosity and love of the underdog about the place, so I got a real kick out of seeing it feature Hetalia style - Not to mention that the part about it always springing leaks isn't so far from the truth given that the real Sealand has suffered from fires and the like in recent times. Anyhow, in this episode poor old Sealand tries to do its bit at a world conference, but forgets that no other country recognises it as a nature - A sad day indeed.
That aside, we get a brief return to Chibitalia at the start of the episode, with the Roman Empire struggling to leave Italy behind, and Italy showing its true spirit as Germany goes off to Russia in World War II... By surrendering. Who cares though, this episode is all about Sealand.
