I personally thought this was a really good prequel special. The story i thought was really touching and the background music really fitted the special well.
The plot is basically about Kaoru, who had just left his family background and is living life on his own, but one day he finds a pendant, which later turns out to be Santa's Claus's pendant. One day, Santa pays him a visit and Kaoru gives Santa her pendant back. In honor of returning her pendant, Santa grants Kaoru a wish.
It's a really good prequel that focuses on Kaoru's point of view (at least when it comes to Christmas),
and you'll notice on how Kaoru still misses and thinks about his mom as well as his beloved Aoi chan, who he hasn't seen in a long time (although Santa reminds him of Aoi in a lot of ways if you know what i mean). You'll also get to see some of the main cast members,but with different personalities as some of them, with the exception of Tina, doesn't know Kaoru well, though i was kinda surprised with Mayu, since she met Kaoru when she was little but oh well.
The art was really good, especially when it came to the part where Kaoru and Santa go ice skating together, and the music was really good.
all in all, it's a really good prequel, and i definitely recommend watching this if you've seen the show and read the manga or did both. Really worth watching. ^_^
