Wooderon Anime of the Year 2018: #6

You don’t see a huge amount of Christmas in anime, I mean, it’s not a widely celebrated holiday over in Japan, and yet it does exist to some extent. It just doesn’t feel like I can make a strong connection to Christmas when talking about an anime. I’m not going to pretend I know if there is any connection in the culture whatsoever.
