    I'll take a swing and say...Zetsuboukaiji. Solely because one of my shows also has 'Zetsubou' in the title.

    I finished one of my recs only, Black Lagoon is the kind of mindless fun that I didn't experience much of from this medium but I look back fondly at every similar show I've watched. The pure cheese entertainment factor really makes it a nice and easy to consume time passer on a day off after a long stressful week, and I always appreciate those.

    I did start the other two recs but didn't get far into them due to a few things going on, I want to finish reading Planetes though definitely so I might do it tomorrow.

    Update from me:
    I finished Castlevania, the extra anime my Santa gave me. While I have no idea about the lore of Castlevania, I found the series to be enjoyable. I was a fan of the animation and style, will most likely watch the 2nd season sometime in the future.
    Sadly, I won't be able to watch the rest of the series and I feel bad for it because my Santa took the time and effort to write me a very detailed card. I'll put those animes on my WTW list, so I can watch them later on.
    Thanks for giving me those picks. I enjoyed both animes I watched :smile:

    Merry almost Christmas everyone! Have a wonderful Eve and Day. :drinking:

    @Nezume, if you ever get to my recs even after Christmas, I'd love to hear your thoughts! I'm not frequently on the forum, but I check for conversations now and then.

    Man, I barely managed to finish all my recs on time. I really enjoyed each and every one of them. To the secret Santa who gave me my recs, thank you very much.

    Dear Santa,
    I finally finished one of your picks. I meant to watch at least one more but ended up wrapped up in finals and the holiday rush at work. I'll try to watch the other picks after Christmas. I really do appreciate the gifts. I did finish Death Billards and posted my thoughts here.
    Merry Christmas!
    Sincerely, the local procrastinator who procrastinated

    Dear Santa,

    Sorry for making you wait so long for any updates! I got busy and haven't been able to read much of anything since I completed your first pick. I'm about to go on a Christmas Eve BingeTM of Maid-Sama--I'm currently 13 pages into the first chapter and I might be in love?? The writing's snappy and snarky, I like it a lot.
    Merry Christmas everybody!

    Dear Santa,

    I finally finished two of the five picks you sent over! I got too busy to post for the first one so I'll do them both now. The Perfect Insider was super awesome. I love mystery anime and this is one to keep on the recommendation list for others. I really enjoyed it, much more than Backflip. I've learned I need to read descriptions but I really enjoyed both. Thank you Santa!

    Dear Santa, I ended up only finishing two of all the picks you gave me, but I did ended up adding them to my WTW so I can use them for the bingo challenge eventually!

    So for the picks I watched, the first one I chose to watch first was Given since it was 11 episodes and I have heard a lot of people sing its praises.

    Given: To be honest, I didn't expect to like the show as much as I did. I don't have anything against BL, but I don't tend to watch a lot of BL anime due to not being fond of the weird couple mechanics and the overly sexualization that comes with a lot of the BL shows. However, I didn't really feel that way about Given. I felt it was more about how they grew up as a band while the romance took a back seat which I was completely fine with since the music was amazing. Both the OP and Mafuyu's song have been living rent free in my brain for a while. I did have some issues with the show which is why I gave it 4 stars. but I overall really enjoyed the ride.

    Sweetness and Lightning: Sweetness and Lightning was an adorable watch. I really enjoyed seeing the father-daughter relationship improve throughout the show and how it showed the growth that both Tsumugi and Kouhei had thanks to the challenges they faced. I did feel that the solutions to the conflicts did feel a bit on the repetitive side, with how they always tried solving any problem by just having Kouhei and Kotori cook something for Tsumugi. Yet overall it was a cute watch that was comfy for the holiday seasons.

    Dear Santa, unfortunately I wasn't able to finish off all the options you've given me but I definitely enjoyed the variety between the shows you've given me.

    - Nura: Rise of the Youkai Clan: The first few episodes felt quite slow / boring to me but the characters grew on me after a couple of episodes. I liked the variety of characters and youkai that were introduced and the action scenes were quite dope as well. Solid pick!

    - Croisee in a foreign labyrinth: I started but haven't finished this one, the animation is great and the characters seem very interesting; will definitely be finishing this one-off during the holidays!

    - To your Eternity: Unfortunately I didn't have time to check out your last recommendation. Sorry, Santa! It still seems interesting and I'll watch it after Croisee

    Thanks again Santa for the gifts! Hope everyone enjoyed theirs as well
    Happy holidays everyone!
