December '15 - Itsudatte My Santa DVD
bought this DVD a number of years ago and I
watch and re-watch it every Christmas. It's
consists of two episodes, with a trailer in
between showing the next episode, lasting in
total of 56 minutes. The language options are
for English and Japanese with subtitles.
first episode is about a teenage boy named
Santa on account that he was born on
Christmas day. His parents are away a lot
leaving him alone in the house for a lot of
the time. He is to spend his birthday and
Christmas day alone. He meets a girl named
Mai who has been sent by the Santa Claus
Academy to cheer him up and fill him with
Christmas spirit. He's too miserable to
respond to any of her suggestions, even when
she makes him a huge Christmas feast, and he
sees her as nothing more than a pest. However
when he realises she isn't insane but someone
who has genuine magical powers, including
changing her appearance, he decides to help
her deliver presents and spread Christmas
second episode is set during summer time and
they spend the day on the beach. Mai has a
little sister named Maimai who also has
special powers and isn't shy about using them.
A woman named Noel has been sent by the Santa
Claus Academy informing them that Mai has to
return to continue her training. They say
their sad farewells for they won't meet up
with each other again until Christmas. There's
a lot more to this story but I don't want to
there are a lot of sad moments within this
anime it is mainly a farcical over the top
comedy with exaggerated moments of hilarity.
The serious moments however still fit
perfectly into the storyline without
appearing out of place.
noticeably odd part was then the teenage boy
Santa and Mai are visiting a children's home
and there is a child sleeping in bed. In the
English dubbed version Mai will refer to the
child as she, yet in the Japanese language
version the child is a he.
the second episode there's a trailer for the
third, yet as of yet I cannot find any
reference online for other episodes existing.
There are plenty of My Santa DVDs with
variations of cover art but they are always
the same two episodes. Incidentally on the
version I have the DVD label can be removed
revealing a small poster on the inner side.
