Yes, it's that time of the year. So which anime Christmas episode gets you the most joy and fuzzy feelings? I haven't checked if there has ever been such a poll, but even if there was it's probably too old anyway Cool

As for my pick, I realize now that I haven't seen a lot, to be honest. I never knew there. Were. SO. MANY! So many that I couldn't include them all in this poll.

Anyway, my favorites are:

Toradora! Ep 17-19: A whole arc with relevant plot, an original Christmas song and Taiga acting like an angel. The spoiler[Santa Bear] scene is heartwarming. Unfortunately spoiler[for Takasu, it ends on a less cheery] note.

Kimi ni Todoke ep 22: Ahhh Sawako is so adorable. She seems to have inherited her father's character and seeing him so enthusiastic spoiler[about spending the day with his family would make anybody feel uncomfortable leaving]. She's invited to a Christmas Party with her friends. spoiler[Unfortunately she misses the party, but] the episode ends on a very sweet note.

So what is/are your favorite(s) and why?

Tokyo Godfathers is simply the best Christmas movie in existence for me. It's all about the selflessness of the season, which isn't always a focus in Xmas movies (if it's American, it's usually family or the magic of santa or something, and if it's Japan, Xmas is a friends thing, not family like the US), Tokyo Godfathers seems to go a different route and it's really damn good. It has both warm fuzzes, character back stories that tug at your heart strings, and it has just the right amount of deus ex machina (it also seems to be aware of the deus ex machina, a plus in this case). But it's also fun to watch and the pacing is just right, it's my go to Xmas movie, anime or otherwise.
