Plot Summary

Mochi America

Mochi America is shown running across the screen, saying "Let's go!"

The Story of the Statue of Liberty

As America celebrated the centennial anniversary of his independence, France noted that the latter would be an old man soon and that he wanted to give him a present so as to commemorate the celebration. However, it turns out to be huge pieces of the Statue of Liberty, which meant that America had to put them together by himself, much to his dread. It is said that the Statue of Liberty was a gift that France had worked extremely hard on for America. The latter also explained that the citizens had to give donations and their co-operation to the project so that the Statue was safely assembled in New York.

Next, America and France were looking at the now-done Statue when the former thanked the other. France asked if America saw any resemblances between the Statue and him, to which America replied "Not at all." Unbeknownst to America and France, someone was standing not far away from them...

The Centennial Gift

Behind a tree, England was thinking about doing something for America's birthday when he coughed out blood due to his illness with anything Independence-related. He decided to fix the crack on the Liberty Bell, but the idea was rejected, for no one wanted it to be fixed.

At the Buckingham Palace, England expressed his want to give America a present for the latter's bicentennial anniversary to the Queen. The Queen first agreed, but then advised him not to do anything that will ruin his health since he coughed out blood again in the middle of his words.

Mochi England

Mochi England had his flag out next to him, muttering "Rubbish!"

The Centennial Gift, Part 2

America was celebrating his bicentennial anniversary as England appeared in a scary manner. He then gave out his present for America: the Bicentennial version of the Liberty Bell. Though England was somewhat discomfort with it, the other happily accepted the gift. England commented that America was still a kid after 200 years, but soon coughed again.

Mochi America, Part 2

Mochi America is shown running across the screen again.

Omake Illustration

England gave America another present, which was an unicorn that was invisible to the latter, who screamed in fear.
