When everyone comes together for a G8 meeting, nothing good can happen.

What They Say:
It's time for another G8 meeting! While America thinks it might be time to lose a member or two, France wants to bring Spain into the fold. Later, kitty Japan adorably expresses his adorable love of tuna. Simply adorable!

Content: (please note that content portions of a review may contain spoilers)
While I definitely like the World War II era for the show, when it deals with the modern day events such as the G8 meetings, it adds an extra bit of fun. With their pasts and confrontations in mind, seeing how they all sort of work together and get jabs in where they can is a extra special. The G8 meeting this time around talks a bit about dropping excess weight from the group, eyeing someone in particular, but mostly it's all about the way they get silly while trying to get things accomplished. Thankfully, even though this meeting takes place in Italy, Italy himself is very distracted by a cat he's playing with, which helps the meeting progress a bit more than it would otherwise.

There's some cute moments with Sweden as he's all staid and true which keeps him from being accessible. But what makes the episode even more adorable than it should be is the inclusion of a Nekotalia short. Having the cats as countries dealing with events within a neighborhood, figuring out how to deal with tuna and so ofrth is just beyond cute. Japan cat alone takes the cake here with his attempts at stopping a ban on canned tuna, but it's all good for him in the end. The kitty versions are pretty mild here but they're just so, so adorable. I wouldn't be surprised if there's a whole line of Nekotalia plushies and toys. They're just so marketable.

I do not mind these series at all.  I think it is interesting that all these characters that represents different countries and how they bully them around based on wars or other dilemas the counteries are facing.  It almost gives an accurate representation what each country is facing right now.  At first watching these series were flat out boring.  I have to say I got into it later on by learning the history of each country.  I have to still give it a C for interest.
