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!

Honey and Clover

My Rating: **** (4:5 stars)

Takumi struggles with his feelings for Rika and his growing feelings for Ayumi. He later finds out that she is going out with Shūji.  Hagu also struggling with what everyone is expecting of her as an artist. Shinobu decides to invite everyone to a Christmas party which promps Yūta and Hagu to go out shopping where Hagu finds out Yūta basically hates the holiday.

While everyone is having a blast, acting like idiots and drinking their heads off, Takumi meets up outside the party with Shūji to find out where Rika is since he couldn’t get ahold of her. Shūji tells him that is off visiting her husband’s gave. (that whole arc is sooooo freakin sad!) Takumi and Shūji end up joining everyone back at the party but Takumi still has a cloud over him. The end of the night comes and Shūji takes everyone home leaving Takumi and Shinobu alone with Yūta passed the hell out. This is one of the times  that Shinobu actually acts like an adult and not a total dumbass when he ask Takumi to drink with him knowing that he is having a hard time. Awwwww….

Eps 9 “Did she notice? Why is it that I don’t tell her? / That brooch was so heavy”

Air Date: June 9, 2005

Episode: 24min

Genre: Comedy, Drama, Slice-of-Life

My Rating: **** (4:5 stars)

Shinobu being the sly dog that he is and still not being honest with himself about his feelings for Hagu, makes her this cute little brooch and leaves it for her with out saying it really was from him. This sets Yūta on a jealous spiral on if he should or shouldn’t tell Hagu that Shinobu was the one that left it for her. Ayumi also tells Takumi that she loves him and ened up creating the most akward moment ever between the two. Another random adult moment from Shinobu is when he helps Ayumi out this sticky situation.

Both Hagu and Yūta take on part time jobs for Christmas in the same district as where Ayumi’s shop is. Hagu ends up helping Ayumi in her shop while Yūta does deliveries. There is yet another Christmas party in this episode with the usual antics. Only this time its Yūta that is struggling with his feelings and still doesn’t know what to do about the brooch. Shinobu helps him with that by admitting he made it but lying that he didn’t make it for any reason. Like he made it because he liked her. Ass…

Eps 17 “What I don’t have is a destination… … / I don’t even know how I feel”

Air Date: August 11, 2005

Episode: 24min

Genre: Comedy, Drama, Slice-of-Life

My Rating: **** (4:5 stars)

Takumi is no longer at the Fujiwara office which sends Miwako into a depression. This prompts her to her a massage chair. Yeah don’t know how that helps with her ‘depression’ but whatever floats your boat… Ayumi is also depressed over the numerous proposals from her childhood friends in the family’s shops neighborhood. She ends up finding a way to turn them all down while still telling them that they will always be a part of her live and she wished them the best. Poor guys! After all that Hagu and Ayumi once again are selling Christmas Cakes in front of her family’s shop.

The group once again has their Christmas party and once again Yūta is depressed over his life which he thinks is a failure. (Can you see a pattern in this episode? This is the norm for most people around the holidays so its refreshing to see someone actually show it.) Later Yūta is admitted to the hospital after collapsing at the party. He ends up getting admitted for an ulcer thanks to his depression and stress. He has realized that he does not have goal or direction in life which is not helping him when he has been going to job interviews. He was even so depressed that his destroyed his art exhibit upsetting everyone around him even the odd old men from the school.

While at the hospital Yūta contemplates quitting school but changes his mind after talking with Mitsuko and Kazuo. This also gave him the courage to tell Hagu how he feels but is rudely interrupted when Shūji comes in with a handheld TV. As the group watches the TV the craziest thing happens! I wont tell you cause you need to see the episode and then see episode 18. So freakin funny!!!
