What if you were born on December 24th; would you like Christmas? How about if your parents decided to name you "Santa"? Needless to say, Santa strongly dislikes the Christmas holiday because he is always alone and his parents never take the time to wish him a "Merry Christmas" or "Happy Birthday". Yet one Christmas Eve, Mai, a Santa-in-training appears before him and promised him that she will do everything in her power to make him happy. With Mai's help, Santa shall discover the true meaning of Christmas and the magic that happens in this world.
Saga is an ordinary girl who lives her life by planning everything ahead of time. Unfortunately, having a waffle-loving Snow fairy called Sugar follow her home was not a part of these plans! Together with apprentice fairies Salt and Pepper, Sugar must find the 'twinkles' that will make their magical flowers blossom, thus turning them into fully fledged season fairies. The trouble is, none of them actually knows what a 'twinkle' is! And so, with help from Saga and other friends, the trio begin their search, whilst having fun and perfecting their magic along the way.
Whereas My Santa! involves santas-in-training, Snow Fairy Sugar involves season fairies-in-training! They are both happy, fun, feel-good anime with magical/fantasy themes so if you liked My Santa! you should like this series too.
It is the year 300X, and the Earth is in peril! Tsuru Tsururiina, the evil dictator of the Margarita Empire has sent his elite troops to Earth to snatch every last hair on the heads of the unsuspecting populace! But there is one man who will stand up against the malicious invasion and save everyone from the terrible horror of baldness: Boboboubo Boubobo! Using his secret art of nose hair combat, Boubobo will not rest until the Margarita forces are gone from Earth for good. But can he succeed without the help of the pink-haired girl Beauty, or the mysterious Pickle that follows him around?
I'm making this recommendation on one basis only, and quite a strong one, considering the nature of both series. The sense of humor in both Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo and Itsudatte My Santa! is very similar, and I feel that they aim at the same audience. These two shows make use of a rediculous plot device to endlessly repeat the same sort of crude jokes. If you somehow loved one of these shows, good for you, definitely check out the other. If you didn't, save yourself from a whole world of pain and mark the other show as "Won't Watch".
Dejiko, Puchiko, and the rest of the gang are back for a yuletide celebration. Having received an invitation to a Christmas party on a cruise ship, the holidays are sure to be full of fun. However, mischief is in the air, as Pyoko and the Black Gema-gema gang try to steal the show! Will Christmas be a disaster of epic proportions? Or can Dejiko thwart the evil villians once more?
Both Itsudatte My Santa! and the Di Gi Charat Christmas special are short, happy, Christmas themed OVAs. So if you're searching for something short to watch during the festive season, I would recommend both.
Naota Nanbada is a boring young boy who leads a boring life in a boring town. His older brother has left for America, and the closest he comes to any excitement is when his deadbeat dad has too much sake. But things change one day when a bizarre girl zooms up to him on a scooter and smacks him in the face with her guitar. What's more, once Naoto returns home he discovers that this strange woman has arrived ahead of him and moved in! Not only does she constantly engage in perverted activities with Naota's father and flirt with the young man himself, but she also claims to be an alien who is searching for the ‘Pirate King.' Now, Naota must learn to live with this new intruder, deal with an odd government agent who sports exceptionally large eyebrows and the mysterious Medical Mechanica, and come to terms with the fact that there are a variety of robots and weapons emerging out of his head - amongst other things. Perhaps boring wasn't so bad after all...
FLCL and Itsudatte My Santa are both about a crazy girl who lands into a boy's life and changes it forever. Wild stuff happens and everyone learns a lesson along the way. They are both short, so it is easy to check them both out.
Keitaro Urashima is somewhat of a failure. In order to fulfill a promise he made to a girl fifteen years ago, he has tried time and again to get into Tokyo U but has never managed to pass the exam. However, fate smiles upon him and he ends up working for his aunt, managing an all-girls dorm! Living with the feral Kaolla, the timid Shinobu, the sake-loving Mitsune, the blade mistress Motoko and the punch-happy Naru, can Keitaro keep his focus and keep his promise? And will he ever end up meeting that girl from his past?
Although Love Hina and My Santa! don't have a lot in common, they do share a similar art style, and have common ecchi sort of themes. Certainly if you liked one, you should check out the other.
