The Christmas episode is about as obligatory in anime as a beach or onsen episode. No matter what time a year the show is airing, there's a good chance if it's a drama or slice-of-life, it's got a Christmas episode. So to escape the endless reruns of Christmas specials on television, I thought it might be fun to compile a list of favorite Christmas episodes to enjoy during the break. Alas, I'm too lazy to hunt through the entire CR catalogue, so by all means feel free to post a link and short description of your favorite Christmas episodes.


Heart-warming
Soni-Ani: Supersonico the Animation, episode 11

SHIROBAKO, episode 12

Well, they're not on Crunchyroll but every year I watch episodes 11 of The Devil Lady and Big O, because nothing says Christmas like killing a demon to the tune of Jingle Bells. Or a demon tree, in the case of BIg O.

Mr. Osomatsu season 1 episode 11 though...
http://www.crunchyroll.com/mr-osomatsu/episode-11-christmas-osomatsu-san-686335

Typical wackiness from the sextuplets. Captures the complex feeling of resenting a holiday everyone is so happy about.

And don't forget this Christmas Classic! Episode 12 of Kampher


12 "Christmas ~The Miracle of the Entrails Dolls~"
"Weihnachten ~Zōmotsutachi no Kiseki~" (Weihnachten~臓物たちの奇跡~) December 17, 2009
Natsuru wakes up on Christmas Eve morning to find out that he and his messenger, Disemboweled Tiger, have swapped bodies! Disemboweled Tiger decides to head on outside to enjoy this occasion and sees Natsuru's friends Mikoto, Shizuku, and Akane on the streets only to notice that they've also been body swapped with their respective messengers, namely Strangled Stray Dog, Electrocuted Wildcat and Black Seppuku Rabbit, as well. The messengers have fun with their new bodies until they are caught sneaking out on a food bill and are forced to perform in a show. Kaede then encounters them and takes them to an amusement park, where they begin to get aroused and play erotic games with her. Kaede goes to a church to confess the sin of committing indecent acts with multiple girls all at once, but she just ends up being punished by the student council (who also happen to be working there). The messengers come to save her, but end up fighting each other instead when they discover (to their delight) that they can feel pain. After saying their goodbyes to Kaede, they ride off on a sleigh, the whole thing being a bizarre Christmas story.
