If anyone can make a good Christmas anime series, it’s Love Hina creator Ken Akamatsu. The anime has a storyline you would expect from most holiday movies but delivered with all the quirk and emotion you would expect from a great anime. The protagonist, named Santa, was born on Christmas Eve but actually hates the holiday. That is, until he comes across a young woman who seems determined to get this grumpy Santa in the holiday spirit.

It’s where the series really sees a lot of things reach a boiling point, so be prepared for some tears along with your laughs for this one.
