A tale of love and bad assumptions...

This is a very simple story of a love that began one Christmas Eve and flourished over time into a common romance. With the nicely done foreshadowing, the viewer is in for a predictable suprise, but it is all reasonable and nobody goes over board (the blessing and curse of this title). It ends with someone feeling really stupid in the end.

Guys around the world might be able to relate in most ways to the stupidity of the girls in this title; to let one bad assumption build on top of another and let things spiral out of control (I know I've got my fair share of stories). Typical of women these days, am I right guys?

This is a nice story and a great way to kill a spare hour. If nice animes like this makes your day brighter, then I would point you to First Kiss Monogatari. If you want nice plus a little extra, Lamune will do the job for you. That title has nice written all over it (see my review) plus it's the normal anime length of 12 episodes.

Never forget Xenosaga.
