It was released on DVD on June 26, 2013. It adapts the rest of the Buon San Valentino story from the original webcomic.
Germany asks Italy to have dinner with him. Italy agrees, wondering what had happened, as the other has been overly nice lately. It is said that Germany started to enjoy himself and feel happier around Italy.
On his way to the restaurant, Germany reflects on other's feelings toward him. He thinks to himself that it had only been a cycle of hatred, warfare and suspicion ever since he was born, and the flowers he is carrying sag a little. Turning his thoughts to Italy, he feels that having someone who trusts him and depends on him was actually fun, and the flowers grow and bloom when he remembers Italy calling out to him. His thoughts then wander to an image of him and Italy wearing flower crowns and how, in his opinion, the weather there is "practically perfect" before he slaps himself and wonders what he was thinking. As Germany reaches the restaurant, he spots that Italy has already arrived and is flirting with many girls, which greatly angers Germany.
A Misunderstanding with Germany
Germany then scolds Italy for flirting when the latter had him. While doing so, a confused Italy wonders why Germany suddenly got mad at him. He thinks of the many things he's done that would make Germany scold him, including skipping running to buy a pizza and drawing graffiti on the other's tank. Unable to decide on which grievance Germany is angry about, Italy sheepishly apologizes to him. Germany is instantly calmed by the apology, and states that as long as Italy's sorry, he's forgiven.
The Worst Type of Waiter
As Italy calls the waiter to get a menu, Germany gives him a bouquet of heliotropes, which he has chosen because they are mentioned in Greek myths that Italy likes. Italy thanks him wholeheartedly, but wonders aloud what the gift means. This terrifies the waiter, and Italy tries to explain awkwardly to their server that "it's not like that" and that it's just something that Germans do, but he is cut off suddenly by Germany saying he's got another gift. Both Italy and the waiter are then terrified when Germany gives the former a tomato-shaped ring. A super shocked Italy trips over his words, rushing to tell the waiter "you've got it all wrong!"
"How to treat your partner": For Germans
Despite Italy's and the waiter's reactions, Germany still thinks that it was only different than what was anticipated because it was his first try, and that all left was "the climax". Italy, tearing up, is shakily trying to tell Germany that "I appreciate your feelings, but...really..." when the latter suddenly snaps out of his thoughts. He yells Italy's name loudly and extends both arms toward him in an intimidating way, scaring Italy as he closes in on him, when the scene cuts away to the night sky as Italy's fearful yell echoes out.
At Austria's house, Hungary is giggling at a book she is reading. After revealing to Austria that it is the advice book that Germany has been studying, she says that the rules on dating and proposing outlined in it are all wrong. When Austria uncomfortably asks whether it is really that amusing to her, she states that the funniest part is the advice on proposals. The scene returns to the restaurant, where Germany has locked a terrified and frozen Italy in a very tight hug, and Hungary remarks in a voice-over that if someone proposed to her in that way, she would fall over from laughing too hard. Germany and Italy are now the center of attention of everyone in the establishment.
Meanwhile, That Muscle-bound Battle-crazy Guy
After a moment and a mouthful of confused and scared stuttering from Italy, Germany's grip loosens. Stepping away, Italy is shocked when Germany seems to be frozen and absent with a blank stare. The scene fades to what's going on in Germany's head. In his mind, a head worker is angrily asking another why there's a sudden slowdown in pace, and the latter sputters that he doesn't know how to file a pile of feelings depicted as being called things such as shame, confusion and surprise. The superior asks if anyone knows where the heart-shaped feelings are supposed to be filed, but a feeling labeled "embarrassed" suddenly grows exponentially and floods everyone out. Back in the restaurant, Germany is still unresponsive, has started shaking, and has smoke streaming from his forehead, while a confused and frantic Italy tries to snap him back to reality to no avail.
It is said that it took a week for Germany's misunderstanding to come to light.

- Comparing to the original webcomic, the episode omitted three segments.
- The first two show England and America's interactions on Valentine's Day. A soldier reveals to England that America has pulled back forces at a crucial time, with the only clue to why being that he mumbled something about England not giving him chocolates. England later approaches America, averting his eyes and holding a chocolate bar, but finds America eating a literal bucket full of them.
- The last strip shows Austria and Hungary going to the bookstore after their discussion on how bad the advice in the book is while Prussia watches them. Austria insists that the worker there find a book on how to comfort people who have failed in love, specifically Germans. Learning this, Prussia smirks and quickly writes down that "his plans may be going awry as we speak" and that he is ashamed to admit that he is "inexperienced" and needs a book for beginners. After Austria purchases the book, Prussia asks Old Fritz to watch over his plans, only to get scolded by him for not relying on his own strength. Prussia briefly wonders if the talk about failed romance refers to Germany, but quickly dismisses the thought, stating that it's impossible for a muscled, battle oriented guy like his brother to be involved.
