It's the Christmas season, and Akari Kido is back in New York with her favorite teddy bear, Apple, for the first time in 15 years. Akari returns to take part in an officer exchange program with the NYPD, where her father once served, but it doesn't take long for her to run into a tricky sorceress named Liberty. When Liberty's magic creates havoc on the street, a teddy bear with a familiar-sounding voice comes to Akari's rescue. It's Apple! But Apple's mysterious reappearance only raises further questions. Who is Apple, really? What is Liberty doing here? And can Akari truly save Christmas? less

This looks stupid.

It is "too" anime. If that makes any sense.

A fluffy one-shot OVA Christmas special from Sanzigen, the CGI supplying office partner of Trigger. Same studio who gave us BBK/BRNK BUBUKI/BURANKI. And you can see the similarity right away if you've seen either one.

That was a blast! As someone who's traveled in New York, I love seeing all the spots that I've been to. For some details, like the MTA buses, this show was on point. There are some odd details. I guess magic isn't so outlandish in this world since the cops or the toy store owner were, relatively speaking, mildly surprised by the magic. I do like Apple's humanoid form.

Is this just one episode? I do want to see more.

The preview for this was at the end of last week's Monster Strike episode. Was hoping CR would air it!

XFlag produces all the Monster Strike series. This episode had different characters, different setting, but same playbook. The movie at the end of season 1 provided the basis for season 2. Wonder if the next Monster Strike season will be a spin-off with these characters in NYC, or if this episode introduces a completely separate anime.

Would like to see more of Akari and Apple. And Emma getting all the sweets she can.

It was fun, but that's just about it. Lots of action, very little story in this one-shot deal here. Apple is such a badass bear, but too bad she's just a bear when all is well and good. And Liberty happens to be someone who was touched by Akari's father. I would have liked to know what happened that day when he was killed on the job Other than that, there's not much substantial about this.

Well this was pretty weird. For me it was one of those things where it was more fun to riff on it than enjoy seriously.

I just can't get over how Akari looks like Makoto Niijima lol

Smiling people in New York..pfff
