The story is set in New York which is lit up with Christmas lights. Tokyo Metropolitan Police officer Akari Kido is directing traffic while on her international exchange training program, when a witch-like character pulls a "Christmas Party" prank. Just before a runaway trailer truck smashes into Akari, a mysterious girl suddenly appears and shouts, "I'm going to protect New York and Akari!"

(I am not a reviewer and I suck at grammar and spelling so take it as you will)
I had so much fun watching this story so I wanted to write a review for it. Let's see.

I have no idea what this movie is about. Legit the story is a fucking mess but it great.

Which is why it's nice to see an ONA dedicated entirely to the holiday, even if it isn't anything to write home about.

Akari Kido is the new intern at the NYPD, having transferred from Tokyo just in time for Christmas. No sooner has she started walking the beat when a mischievous magical girl appears, bringing the ...

I can imagine why this is free to watch: to steal your time and to gain money with advertisements while you could be watching better anime, studying, working, etc. If you ...
