|Hetalia Episode Chronology|
Davie is the eleventh episode of Hetalia: The World Twinkle, and the one hundred and thirty-first overall in the anime series Hetalia. It was released early by Funimation to their subscribers in the United States and Canada on September 10, 2015, and was broadcast in Japan on September 11, 2015. It adapts the Davie story from the original webcomic.
This episode is told through very little dialogue and is near silent (except for the accompanying song Ephemeral Flowers), and uses picture bubbles to explain the plot between characters, as in the original strip.
The episode opens in the American colonial days, where a young boy sees a young America playing with a rabbit. The boy approaches and introduces himself as Davie. Davie brings America back to his home, where he shows him a picture of a flower in a book. He explains that he wanted the flower, but couldn't find it anywhere. America promises to look for it and bring it back to him. As the night falls, they part and wave goodbye. Some time passes, and America is seen searching the fields for the flower. He appears dismayed, and he decides to go back to see Davie. It is seen that Davie's cabin is no longer alone, and there is a larger village.
America opens the gates to the village, and calls out to Davie. Time has passed, and now Davie is a young adult. Davie's accompanying friend seems to ask if he knows the young boy calling his name, and he appears to deny it. They both walk away, shocking America. America worries, and tries to figure out where to go from there. He eventually goes to England and asks fervently about it. England soon tells him his flower didn't grow in America's home, but back in his. America is heartbroken, but England immediately offers to bring some back from his home, quelling his anxiety. America joyfully runs to tell Davie, but the village has expanded over time and is much larger. He calls out to Davie again, but the passage of time now shows that Davie has become much older, and has a family. America tries to tell him about the flower, but Davie only believes him to be a young boy, and asks about the whereabouts of his parents. America shakes his head in distraught, and leaves defeated.
Finally, England returns back to America, and America tearfully berates and hits him for his prolonged absence. England calms him by presenting him a bouquet of Davie's flowers. America is immediately overjoyed and runs quickly to see Davie. America soon meets a young boy in a dark suit with a resemblance to Davie, and believes him to be so, tearfully calling out to him. America presents the boy with the flowers, who looks at them sadly. America follows the boy to where a casket lies, which holds Davie, who has passed away from time and old age. The boy throws the flowers into the casket, and the innocent America looks into it, not quite understanding what is happening. Although America went through with his promise, as a nation, he did not understand that time was limited for other people around him. America picks up a flower and offers it to the sullen boy, and asks him in confusion: "Davie?"
