Mod Edit: This review was originally written for the one-shot "Santa Claus Panic!", which was merged into this entry.
Yess! Finally another SN one shot! It's painful waiting for these smexy bishies to show themselves again and seduce the lucky heroine. In fact, this is probably the most daring of all of Nana's plots so far, with the bishie being an actual host intent on "servicing" the customer!
So yes, because Yayuka has only spent lonely christmases up until now, she orders a santa to have all sorts of yuletide fun with on x mas eve, but ends up with a very handsome and charming host on
her hands. Only, being the inexperienced virgin that she is, she doesn't automatically comply to His Host's wishes to get busy, but instead finally starts to enjoy christmas the way she always imagined she would. But Yoshitsune is bound to give her her money's worth. Gosh, that is one sexually charged christmas!
Expressions are rip roaring as usual, with the best ones being those of surprise and fear. X Mas backgrounds and sequences are drawn with a very comfy feel around them. Yoshi's costume is very... suggestive as as his sidelong glances! He's quite an aggressive host actually, I was under the impression that hosts mostly provided company, not sexual service. But his chaste interactions with Yayuka as well as her rebuttals to his advances are perhaps the highlight to the comedy of this story. The overall story is also quite unexpected and refreshing in how attraction and feelings are portrayed as being developed slowly and muddled with insecurity. Of course, the raciest scenes are the ones which build upto the almost kisses and it is precisely for those scenes that you must must must read this manga, despite it being far from the christmas season, because you can always do with warm feelings in your heart any time of the year!
