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?
This felt like a really good amateur effort. The CG animation was surprisingly good and the story had more to it than I was expecting. But it's definitely not perfect. The story was super cheesy and CG animation, even when it's well done, can't compare to hand drawn animation. Overall, I think it's worth watching if you go into it with the right expectations.
