Top Five Anime Characters To Spend Christmas With

Thursday 22nd December 2016


Christmas is almost here! If you could spend the day with any anime character, who would you choose and why?

Here are our choices:

Hatake Kakashi
Naruto

Kakashi
Naruto's Kakashi may not be an obvious choice when it comes to spending Christmas with someone, but he's certainly an interesting one. Just imagine it; listening to Kakashi reading his favourite extracts from Make-out Paradise, while the Yule Log burns in the background - it would make for one heck of an enjoyable evening. And, with his Sharingan, he'd have a chance at seeing Santa as he visits in excess of 800 houses per second delivering presents.

 

Kosaki Onodera
Nisekoi


Kosaki Onodera
We had to choose a character voiced by Kana Hanazawa, as experiencing her singing Christmas songs would be the highlight of the day. While Onodera may not be able to help with the actual cooking, she is adept at decorating so would really be of help making everything look festive - and there's always the chance that she'd bring some of those exquisite looking sweets from her family's shop to enjoy on Christmas day.

 

Rikka Takanashi
Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions


Rikka
You’re almost guaranteed a great time if you’re in the company of someone who is a “Chunibyo”. Chunibyo is a colloquial term used in Japan, which translates as "Delusions of Grandeur", or "Middle-school 2nd Year Syndrome". So who better to Christmas it up with than Rikka, who has the most severe case of Chunibyo known to the world. It would certainly be a memorable day if she decides the Christmas tree is actually an alien from outer space that feeds on presents…

 

Aladdin
Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic


Aladdin
Aladdin makes this list not only for his abilities as a Magi (though they would come in handy to help keep the festivities going) - no, the reason for his inclusion is his capacity to have a good time and he is bound to be a fun companion - just ask Alibaba. There’s never a dull moment when Aladdin’s around.

 

Lelouch
Code Geass: Lelouch Of The Rebellion


Lelouch
Lelouch would be the perfect person to have by your side during Christmas. You could arrange the greatest Christmas party ever using his Geass to secure the finest food and drink, as well as “inviting” some famous singers over to provide the entertainment. Of course, if you feel like ruining Christmas for everybody, Lelouch could also use his abilities on Santa… the possibilities are endless.

Unspinning Fairy Tail

Hugh David argues that the treasure is in the detail
The biggest influence on this anime is not tabletop RPGs or even the long-standing fantasy fiction genre itself. No, the stamp of numerous Japanese role-playing videogames is all over Fairy Tail, from the Atelier series to the Final Fantasy franchise, in particular Final Fantasy XII

Gareth Edwards: From Factory Farm to Godzilla

The director’s path from Sci-Fi London to Hollywood
“We pulled all our favourite moments from Akira and had this library of reference, so whenever we got stuck, or we ever felt like a sequence wasn’t inspired enough, or we didn’t know exactly how to give it that edge to made it feel as epic as we could, we would always thumb through the Akira imagery and suddenly get a wave of excitement or a new direction.”

Interview: Yui Tanimura on Dark Souls II

Matt Kamen speaks with the director of the toughest game you’ll play this year.
For Dark Souls II, new directors Yui Tanimura and Tomohiro Shibuya promise the upcoming sequel will be every bit as challenging as its precursors.

The History of Evangelion

Andrew Osmond on the prelude to the First Impact
Evangelion started as Neon Genesis Evangelion, a 26-part TV serial in 1995. It used a familiar Japanese plot template: the teenage boy who drives a giant robot (or in Eva’s case, cyborg), using the huge and frightening body to fight monsters and save Earth. The lyrics of the TV song express the myth. “Like an angel without a sense of mercy / Rise young boy to the heavens as a legend!”

Fairy Tail Music: Jamil

Tom Smith on Fairy Tail’s 8th Opening Theme
If you’re reading this blog, there’s a fair chance that the idea of visiting Japan has crossed your mind a few times. American-born Jamil Abbas Kazmi had a similar thought, though he wanted to take it one step further by establishing a career out there.

Naruto Music: tacica

Tom Smith on Naruto’s newest song.
Japanese duo Tacica won’t be winning the Manga UK Blog award for most original song title anytime soon, mostly because no such award exists. But if it did, they still wouldn’t win. Especially not with the title of their hit single and Naruto Shippuden opener, Newsong.

Sword Art Online music: Luna Haruna

Tom Smith on the Gothic Lolita who overflies all the competition
Meet Haruna, the artist behind Sword Art Online’s third ending theme; Overly. At the age of twenty she managed to land her dream job as a singer. And not just any singer; an anime singer!
