|Hetalia Episode Chronology|
The Gentle Fight Between Russia and I (ロシアさんと僕のゆるやかな喧嘩 Roshia-san to boku no yuruyakana kenka) is the eighth episode of Hetalia: The Beautiful World, and the one hundred and eighth overall in the anime series Hetalia. It was broadcast on March 15, 2013. It adapts the majority of the The Gentle Fight Between Russia and I story from the original webcomic.
A film reel countdown plays, and the episode begins with Estonia sitting at his laptop. He won the "carry your wife" competition, and he took pictures with Finland. As he gets ready to update his blog, he discovers that his website now looks like a Russia fan site. A title card featuring Estonia, Russia, and America appears while ominous music plays.
An Underling informs Estonia that all Estonia sites have been hijacked. Estonia browses the sites, lamenting that they used such a cute picture of Russia. He is in shock that his site got hacked, and decides that a culprit this self assertive must be Russia.
At Russia's house, Russia forcibly feeds Estonia pancakes while he explains that his site has been hacked. Confused by Russia's behavior, Estonia accuses him of committing the hack, as he's the only person he can think of. Russia denies that it is him, but admits that the idea can't be helped, and proposes that they use an instrument that can solve the mystery quickly. Russia holds up a long faucet (calling it a magic cane) and Estonia screams in horror.
Mochi Estonia faces his laptop and then turns around so his face is visible and he sparkles.
America to the Rescue!
America arrives at Estonia's house, announcing that Lithuania told him what had happened and he came to help. Estonia allows America to sit at his computer, and America says that it'll be okay because of his skills with the internet. America intends to begin tracing the culprit's trail, and Estonia thanks him and begins to wait. America opens an internet browser and the page begins to load as he and Estonia stare intently at it. A microwave timer goes off, and America holds his mug as he stares out the window and talks to a bird, remarking that the computer is taking a long time. A mortified Estonia silently admits that he uses a DSL line. The Narrator explains that Estonia's Internet is often slow and connecting tends to be problematic. In addition, American sites can be heavy with all-Flash pages, large images, full-screen video, and music.
