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 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. One minute we have a some hot sorcerer turning toys such as snowman and nut crackers into fucking 10 feet+ versions of themselves that can't be destroyed with bullets then Akari bear saves her from a train trying to kill her and then apple (the bear) fights that sorcerer that read more

Christmas just doesn't seem to hold the same place in anime that it used to. We still get our fair share of Christmas episodes, but the significance of hooking up or being alone on Xmas eve just doesn't seem to have the same importance that it used to. 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 read more

It's a relatively enjoyable little holiday "special" based primarily on Christmas and the feeling of being together, childhood wonder and family.

This is no anime masterpiece and it is likely it'll be forgotten about very quickly but it services its purpose very well for what it needs to be as a one off 40 minute ONA.

The characters are all fairly stock or basic but they are used effectively for comedic effect however they generally fail when attempting to make a more emotional effect for the "deeper" moments of the story. This is either down to there not being enough time for us to bond with the read more

So, I wasn't sure what to expect when I saw this ONA. I thought it was going to be a weird kid's thing, but I couldn't pass up what I saw from the thumbnail and short description. The story had a lot going on in it, which I thought was the only downside, but to be fair it was all in a 40 minute block. I loved the art, especially the background (the CG characters took a little getting used to, though). I genuinely enjoyed this short little Christmas Special thing. I would recommend it for anyone who is open to the idea of read more
