Hetalia

Hetalia Christmas 1

Air Date: August 21, 2009

Episode: S. 2, Eps. 31 “Academy Hetalia Christmas”

Genre: Comedy, Craziness, History

My Rating: **** (4:5 stars)

This post ended up being a bit later then I wanted it to be but better late then never! ;c)

Germany decides to make the next Hetalia Academy Paper be about Christmas around the world. Italy and Japan join in and think it’s a great idea! Italy states for him its all about lights on the mountains, making a turkey and giving gifts to mob bosses. Japan says its about battling the shipping mall with a hint at romance.

Germany, Japan and Italy head off to interview people with America up first to explain his, as the narrator calls it, fat Christmas. He goes on that it’s about shopping, eating and they ‘X’ out the Christ part to mark it extreme! Riiiight…

Next is, as the narrator puts it, ‘Christmas in Godless Russia’. Russia starts in on the cold weather in Russia and that they tell a more pagan based story about father frost and he uses witchcraft is you make dolls of him and they start moving after 25days… China says tree are illegal and they started celebrating it when Hong Kong introduced it.

The narrator really cracks me up with the extra comments and France was no exception by calling it ‘Gay Christmas’ (remember people Hetalia pokes fun at EVERYONE!!! So try not to take offence :c). France goes on to think that everyone wants to spend Christmas ‘with’ him which Germany gives a hearty hell no to. He then explains that Frances Christmas contains the romance and culture that Germany lacks. They get Santa drunk on wine and everyone joins him. Japan is baffled that they let him get drunk and drive around giving out presents to kids.

Finland is the last one they interview and he is a bit ummm, out there. Finland explains that its all about being naked and in a hot sauna. The family gets together and they burn wood in small rooms to make steam boxes. He also throws in that there is a bit of a pagan twist to their celebration with fortune telling about the new year which for some odd reason excites Germany.

Hetalia Christmas 4

As they are getting ready to write the paper, Italy ask Germany about his Christmas. He says that their Christmas Markets are famous all over and that they like to eat and get drunk like everyone else. German then gets a bit embarrassed and asked Japan and Italy if there have plans for Christmas which both say they don’t. Of course Italy says it with his usual flair lol. As they walk off Germany points out that it’s the same group together for the holiday again this year and Japan proclaims that it is going to be very uncomfortable.

Hetalia Chirstmas 5

The finally scene is Japan cornering Britain to ask him about his Christmas as Britain is cowering away from him lol. Oh Hetalia you crack me up every time!

Pt. 4!!!

Vandread

Vandread Christmas 1

Air Date: December 5, 2000 

Episode: Season 1, Eps. 10  “White Love”

Genre: Adventure, Comedy, Mech, Romance

My Rating: *** (3:5 stars)

Its christmas time on the ship and the women are going all out decorating! Even the captain is in a festive mood dressing up like santa. Just like most things on ship though, only the Womens really know about christmas. The men are clueless to what this holiday means and what it’s about.

Pypro trys to explain what christmas is with no such luck. The only ‘festival’ the men know of was more like war games lol. Head is of course quickly interrupted by Dita who comes flying into then and takes of with Hibiki. In the process of trying to get Hibiki to help getting things ready on the ship for Christmas, they happen to uncover a room that bad been hidden since the colonization times. In it they find a curious movie that the group decides to play throughout the ship. What’s even more curious is what’s on the tape! A man and a woman together! With kids no less! This sends the ship into an uproar. I mean a man and woman together?!? How dare they lol.

Vandread Christmas 2

Meanwhile Parfet is attempting to make a show machine for the big day. Which is not really going well. At this point Hibiki finds out that he is expected to give Dita a gift which leaves him baffled and of course pissed to have to do something to stupid in his mind. Even though head thinks it’s all stupid, he sees that Parfet is having issues with the snow machine and overhears BC saying that the comet they will be passing w have to do for snow this year which gives him an idea. Head heads out into the comet storm to grab some ice. It also happens that Meia is headed out on patrol. Of course bad luck follows and they run into a few enimes in the comets tail.

Back on the ship the rest of the men are learning that ALL of them, not just Hibiki, are expected to give the women they are normally around gifts! This sends then into a slight panic as gift giving is not something they do back on their planet. Dita is running round like a chicken with itself head cut off looking for Hibiki who is still in the comet with Meia fighting the enemy robot things. As the fighting is coming to an end and the countdown for Christmas has started on the ship, a shower of comet particals comes down around the ship looking just like snow.

Vandread Christmas 3

Since Parfet’s snow machine looked like it was a bust, it was a nice substitute! Turns out though that her machines turn on at just the last-minute.
Cute episode overall but it goes quickly. It’s a nice addition to your list though for Christmas animes!

Pt. 3!!!

Chrono Crusade!

Air Date: February 16, 2004

Episode: Season 1, Eps. 12 “Holy Night”

Genre: Romance, Action, Adventure, Drama, Steampunk, Supernatural

My Rating: **** (4:5 stars)

The anime starts off with Sister Rosette saving little Azmaria  from an embarrassing Christmas pageant rehearsal with the other Sisters to head off to a meeting with Sister Kate and Father Ewan. There with Chrono they learn of news that 3 agents have died in SFO from investigations into Aion which leads them to believe something important is going to happen on the west coast or it has already started.

Chrono Crusade Holy Night 1

This of course leads Sister Rosette to beg that they send her to SFO in the hope of finding a lead to her brother Joshua. After a heated debate with Sister Kate, she is finally allowed to go to SFO. She is in such a hurry to leave that she doesn’t realize that everyone is actually sad about her going and on top of it she is leaving before Christmas. Father Ewan asks her to stay for at least Christmas and after seeing the teary eyes of the other Sisters and the ok from Chrono, she decides to stay for Christmas which makes everyone happy. Except for Azmaria who reflects on her past Christmas memories all of which are not happy ones.

Chrono, Rosette and Azmaria are sent into the city to try and get Christmas donations which of course leads to Rosette making an ass of herself like usual and embarrassing everyone else lol. She actually ends up cornering people and in a polite way forcing them to cough up cash. There she runs into Satella who turns out to be filthy rich and donates a wad of cash!

Chrono Crusade Holy Night 2

Azmaria  shortly after springs on the group that she does/doesn’t believe in Santa and that he never visited because she was told she was bad. This shocks everyone and they tell her there is no way she is or was bad. Azmaria realizes at that moment that she has people that care about her she needs to buy gifts for this year! Never having had people to get gifts for she is clueless on where to start. She asks the Sisters for assistance and they get her, well, nowhere! She finally decides to go window shopping in the city to find her gifts.

In the process of her buying a present she had being eyeing for some time for Rosette, she ends up preforming a good deed much to the surprise of the shop owner. Afterwards she runs into Rosette and Chrono who are out delivering toys to the kids in town. During this she starts to realize what Christmas really means.

Chrono Crusade Holy Night 3

The best part of this episode is the end where everyone throws Azmaria  a surprise Christmas party with a huge banquet to show they care. Awww! So cute! :c)
