Merry Christmas! I figured it was mandatory to write some kind of happy cheerful Christmas post today so here it goes. Today I had lunch with my parents and spent some required family time opening presents and talking. Then the Christmas movies came on, so I decided to abandon ship and watch some anime instead. But which anime? Perhaps something with a Christmas theme like Love Hina? Well sadly I don’t happen to have any, but I’ve found something that is strangely just as enjoyable and heartwarming.
The Twelve Kingdoms. It no real relation to the holidays and honestly I’m not sure why I like it as much as I do, but the characters are well developed and it has a plot, which, while not exactly earth-shattering, still manages to break the mold and feels very unique and magical.
The quick summary is this: A high school girl is brought to another world and dropped into a world of samurai and yoma. I honestly can’t say too much without giving away the plot, but It’s important to stick with it a few episodes to let it grow on you, because the beginning is a tad confusing at times.
With that, I think I’ll get back to watching it. I hope everyone has a great day. Please leave a comment if you know of any good holiday-themed anime/manga you’d recommend!
