Synopsis

Santa Company is a worldwide organization dedicated to delivering presents to children. Santa Company's elves—known as "tonttus"—aid several Santas every year by wrapping presents, raising reindeer, and helping with deliveries. Mint Rondo is one of the many new tonttus arriving at Santa Company's tropical island office. Following in her older brother's footsteps, Mint begins training alongside her friend, Thomas Dou, and rival, Noah, to eventually become a Santa herself. Unfortunately, her clumsiness causes her to fall far behind her peers and into her brother's shadow.

One day, while sitting on the beach, Mint, Thomas, and Noah discover the biggest threat that Santa Company has faced yet: ocean pollution! With the accumulation of litter going unnoticed, the growing hazard will soon endanger the surrounding ocean wildlife and the members of the Santa Company. As trouble looms over the horizon, Mint might just be able to clean up her act and save everyone on the island in time for Christmas Eve.

Background

Santa Company: Manatsu no Merry Christmas was produced in conjunction with the Nippon Foundation's "Change for the Blue" initiative in order to raise awareness about ocean pollution as part of the Umi-to-Nippon project. The film made its worldwide debut through MyAnimeList on January 28, 2021.

It is an original work brought to life by Kenji Itoso. A short animation was released in 2014 after a successful crowdfunding campaign, followed by a feature-length version released in Japan in 2019. This work is a spin-off featuring some of the same characters.

Most of this is my early thoughts about the film. I did not spend much time over thinking the film. I also did not watch many short anime films, so i do not have a specific standard for reviewing them. I will be judging the film based sorely on my expectations and how much did the film delivered.
And let me tell you, going in to this, I did not had any high expectations. I did not watch the original film, neither did I know anything about it`s premise and world. I knew that this was a spin-off and that it had limited budget and ...

Mixed Feelings
I think it's a good idea to spread awareness about the plastics and trash that contaminated the sea and affecting marine animals. I really wish the anime would be more realistic, based on reality lives than just a fantasy because, in reality, it is really hard to tell people to not littering the ocean.
You can't just tell people "hey the sea is polluted and marine animals are dying we have to stop this" and then they just agree and clean the oceans. In reality, there are many people who are lazy to put trash in to the bin or just put it in their pocket ...

***SPOILER AHEAD***


Supposed to be educational but instead of focusing on the real life impacts it has (it does touch on this briefly but VERY briefly- probably less than a minute in total), it instead focuses on a monster that appears because of trash which of course not being real, is not going to make people change because it's FICTIONAL.

The main protagonist is also possibly one of the most infuriating characters I've ever met. She's idiotic, blames everything that goes wrong or isn't in her favour on others, and basically just straight up bullies Trevor. She's the epitome of a terrible person yet she saves the ...
