Following its 2019 TV debut, Lord El-Melloi II Case Files is back to surprise us with a Christmas special episode / short movie.

The mystery itself was based on why Waver suddenly became younger and aged back to his late teen years which was fairly amusing to watch.

Most of the focus in the story after ...
