|Hetalia Episode Chronology|
What Italy Forgot (イタリアの忘れ物 Itaria no wasuremono) is the sixteenth episode of Hetalia: The Beautiful World, and the one hundred and sixteenth overall in the anime series Hetalia. It was broadcast on May 24, 2013. It adapted the strips What Italy Forgot from the Each Battlefield chapter, Before Mont Saint-Michel was Built from the A bientôt! (Until We Meet Again) chapter, and the Top Secret chapter from Hetalia: Axis Powers Volume 4 as well as The Creation of Dambolis from the original webcomic.
Before Mont Saint-Michel was Built
One night, the Archangel Michael appeared in Bishop Aubert's dream and revealed that the Bishop was to build a church. However, he thought it was just a strange dream and ignored it. The same thing happened once more later. In the third night, the Bishop saw an angry Archangel Michael in his dream and eventually believed that the revelation was real when he saw a hole on his forehead.
In the present, France is telling the story to Italy, who is horrified about the hole. France also heard that it was created when the Archangel poked a hole with his finger.
Seychelles is watching the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton as she receives a phone call from England. When she meets him, he tells her that the Prince and Duchess were going to her place for their honeymoon and asks her if it was okay. Seychelles, overwhelmed, happily accepts the request while England tells her that this was a top secret and, therefore, not to tell anyone about it. She agrees, but also asks if she can mutter to herself, which England thinks is alright, only to panic when she yells the news loudly. It is said that the secret came out right after that.
The Creation of Dambolis
The narrator talks about how to create a Dambolis. First, Sweden writes "England" on a cardboard box. He sneaks up to Sealand, who is watching TV and unaware of his presence from behind. Sweden then puts the cardboard box on Sealand. The narrator describes the Dambolis as "an England-like creature of a cardboard box, created by Sweden in 3 minutes", and says that if you shake it, you will hear a voice, which is actually Sealand's. Sweden claims that Sealand was watching too much TV, and asks Finland if Sealand could spend time playing with him. Nevertheless, Finland tells Sweden not to ask his opinion.
What Italy Forgot
In WWI, outside the Italian front, Germany gets loads of new guns that Italy has left behind. He decides to check one of them and reads the manual, which he finds "too relaxed". In the manual, Italy states that his gun could be opened easily, so that cleaning is easy. Nevertheless, because of this advantage, the gun will be broken if you put normal bullets in. Therefore, Italy chooses to use safe bullets for those guns. So, in other words, he chose ease of cleaning over power, much to Germany's horror. Later, Germany states that Italy was always a cause for worry, whether he is a friend or foe, as the latter claims that pasta was delicious.
