On The Eleventh Day Of Christmas Blogging…

Another post from TWWK on the meaning behind certain Christmas specials. This time around, it’s all about Ah! My Goddess, a classic romance whose manga has been running for about 40 years. Here, he acknowledges that you can’t really mention Jesus where the Christian god doesn’t really exist, but that doesn’t mean that the spirit of the holiday doesn’t shine through! I’ve been through some hard times financially with my family (and on my own), and know how hard it is to really find a heartfelt gift. It’s easy to tell someone that you don’t need anything… but when the spirit of giving is upon us, it’s unbearable hard to just let it go.

Highlights from this post: It covers THREE episodes! Three! And you can watch them on Funimation’s site.

    I might have to watch that show. For gifts, I usually buy everyone a book, as the case is this year, unless I’m feeling rich (last year).

    Have a Merry Christmas!

      It’s a series that gets a lot of mixed reception. Fans of the manga tend to be not so hot for it, while anime fans tend to be… indifferent. But I think it’s a series that has a lot of great moments in it, though the in-between can be lackluster. (Also, I’m usually too poor for books. Those can be frippin’ expensive if I’m buying new, and with few places to buy them used, I usually end up doing homemade candy for everyone.)

      Also, Merry Xmas!
