Anime Christmas Episodes

Anyone want to list some good Christmas episodes?

Here's a few:

Himouto! Umaru-chan: s01e08 "Umaru and Christmas and New Year's" (2015)

Is the Order a Rabbit?: s01e11 "The Girl Dons a Red Coat and Drives a Team of Rabbits Across the Christmas Eve Night Sky" (2014)

K-On!: s01e07 "Christmas!" (2009)

Kimi ni Todoke: s01e22 "Christmas" (2010)

Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions: OVA "Slapstick Noel" (2013)

My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU: s02e09 "And, Yukinoshita Yukino Is..." (2015)
My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU: s02e10 "The Thing That the Light..." (2015)

Toradora: s01e17 "Mercury Retrogrades at Christmas" (2009)
Toradora: s01e18 "Under the Fir Tree" (2009)
Toradora: s01e19 "Christmas Eve Festival" (2009)

Yamada's First Time: s01e04 "Romantic Christmas Eve!" (2010)
Yamada's First Time: s01e11 "Year 2 Class H's Christmas Party" (2010)

YuruYuri: s01e07 "Christmas" (2011)
YuruYuri: s02e08 "Chinatsu Unrivaled" (2012)

Is The Order A Rabbit probably has the most Christmassy episode. The girls visit a European-style Christmas market and have a Christmas party.

Re: Anime Christmas Episodes

One of the best and most memorable is the Christmas episode of Chrono Crusade with Sister Rosette. It's such a popular episode that her "Christmas outfit," seen only in the one episode, was used for one of the DVD releases' cover.

A lot of romantic anime touch on Christmas episodes, since the Japanese treat it as a romantic holiday for couples than the celebration of Jesus' birth. I think it played an important role in Amagami SS at one point.

The "Christmas" episode was a bit of a turning point for several of the relationships in The Pet Girl of Sakurasou, too. I still at Sorata's reaction to Aoyama in a skirt.

Re: Anime Christmas Episodes

I made a list of Christmas anime TV episodes for one of the Holiday Challenges on DVD Talk a few years ago. I had a Urusei Yatsura episode, the Love Hina Christmas special, a couple of Pokémon episodes, and episodes of "Little Women" and "The Trapp Family Story." Let's see...what else? Episodes of: Mahoromatic, Digimon, Cyborg 009, Hamtaro, Maison Ikkoku, Ai Yori Aoshi, Lupin the 3rd, and the Sailor Moon S movie, "Hearts in Ice."

Re: Anime Christmas Episodes

Ichigo Mashimaro (Strawberry Marshmallow) has a great Christmas episode. It's also the final episode of the series, so it's really sweet and sentimental.
