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.

Hetalia Christmas 2

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.

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!

5 Days Of Christmas Animes!!! Pt. 2

21 Dec

Pt. 2!!!

Yuru Yuri!

Yuru Yuri Christmas 1

Air Date: August 16, 2011

Episode: Season 1, Eps. 7 “Christmasery”

Genre: Yuri, Comedy,  Slice Of Life, Craziness

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

This Christmas episode of Yuru Yuri starts with the usual flair of Kyōko busting into the clubhouse in a Santa suit. Mind you its 1 week before Christmas proving to everyone that she really is off her rocker a bit. Since Christmas in Japan is more of a romantic holiday then anything, she suggests that they all go out on dates since everyone else will be on them. This of course leads to massive tension on who will be with who…

Kyōko suggest they have a lotto to draw numbers and whoever has the same numbers are paired up. More tension ensues while everyone is wishing to be with who they wanted and steaming over the idea of being with someone they don’t want lol. Like Ayano and Yui.

As the girls set off on their dates, some willingly and others not so much, they end up all over town. Not to give away too much but one couple goes to the movies and arcade, another to a couple cafes, with yet another to a restaurant and the last couple sit in the park. Most of the dates stared off w lots of grumbling but by the end of them they were actually getting along with a couple of them even having fun! They all meet up in the park at the end of their dates. Awww so cute!

Yuru Yuri Christmas 2

There is a VERY quick cut to the new years from the park and each girl is celebrating with their families and reading the news years cards from their friends. All of them were cute and nice with the exception on Chinatsu’s cards which were well her standard dark and un-artistic products that she generally produces lol.

Yuru Yuri Chirstmas 3

Overall it’s a cute episode that showed more of the romantic lovey dovey side to Christmas that you see in Japan instead of the more religious side in the west.

This is the episode all about dreams… Osaka is once again in dreamland and this time she is dreaming about the great mystery of Chiyos pigtails. She is dreaming that Chiyo is flying around using her pigtails as propellers! Osaka then decides to take the pigtails off to see what happens and Chiyo falls down. Sakai is dreaming too but of the neighborhood cat that that always eludes her but not before scratching the living daylights out of her, Chiyo then comes along and introducing her to a cat that says its Chiyo-chichi and then Chiyo invites her to her house for dinner with her dad. While there Sakai sees a penguin that is supposed to be Chiyos maid.  Tomo is also off drooling in dreamland about things that will never ever happen. She is dreaming that she is the a all-star student that scores high marks and is smarter then Chiyo and Yomi. HA! Yeah right! She also wins beauty contest and is the hero in every tale. Kaorin is having a bit of a Yuri dream where Sakaki saves her from the local Yakuza but, before the story can progress she is woken up to head to the temple with everyone for new years. While at the temple the group talking about their dreams that point out to Chiyo that she was in each one of them which leaves her franticly asking what she was like and what she did in them as they are bringing in the new year.
