I can’t believe how late I am for this, but you know this time can be a bit busy. I know this is a Christmas movie but this does go all the way up to new year’s and new year’s isn’t over yet so technically… I’m still on time? Right? RIGHT?!
Anyway, If there’s one anime that you need to watch these holidays, it is this one. Watch it if you’ve never watched this. Re-watch it if you’ve already watched it. The dub is included here too, and it’s pretty great. I know I’ll be re-watching this next Christmas.
The encode is done from Vanilla’s BD remux with subtitles from Commie, KAA and niizk. Commie’s subs are recommended and I had to tweak some of the typesetting. The new dub (a re-dub actually, since the original dub was never released on home video) is synced too. If you happen to have my Subbed release, you can get this file and mux it in to make it Dual Audio.
Characters & Voice Actors
If you think homeless people as a modern 3 wise-men tale would make for a kooky and delightful holiday film….well you would be right!
This movie covers some very heavy themes, but is ultimately about the miracles in life.
The end warmed my unfeeling heart a bit. Great holiday film.
A clever character piece, interweaving multiple plotlines effortlessly while developing its deeply human characters. Heartfelt and emotive.
A surprisingly heartwarming film from a very strange anime director.
Great movie to sit back and watch on Christmas.
The best anime Christmas movie.
