Eh, they're alright I guess. I'm not a huge peminat of these kinds of theme uses, but sometimes they can be used well. I liked the Halloween depictions of One Piece characters that have been made - it's a good way to enjoy watching your kegemaran characters stretch a little beyond that's normal for them and into something anda understand at least partially.
The artwork, I like. During the holidays, fanartists draw all kinds of pictures of their kegemaran characters in holiday scenes, and some are pretty good. On the other hand, I don't really care either way about seeing the actual theme in the series itself. If it just happens to be that time of year, according to the series' storyline, then so be it. But a Rawak filler episode with no real plot relevance to make a joke about the holidays? Oh God, spare me.
I Cinta it. It's "fun" to me :) & I wish there was lebih of it! I grew up on special shows for kids airing at Easter, Halloween, Christmas, Valentines Day- Charlie Brown, & other kid specials for such times and it always made me happy & excited! I wouldn't miss it! 'But then I am bias.
As a big kid, lol, I like watching certain new shows & I'd Cinta my animes to do more. What I do not care for is that special segment aired at an off-time not correlating, lol. (like menunjukkan their Krismas episode in March! BOO. lol. That takes the "specialness" out of it when they do that.) But I am a peminat of the non-generic lebih special the better -NESS. :)
I usually like those episodes.... especially if the Anime thinks outside the box of 'cliche' Krismas episodes and does something different.
Like the Kimi to Boku episode [pictured]... it was humorous like the rest of the Anime so it flowed really well. And they got roped into having to help.... it's like the tajuk should be "The Krismas that went Wrong." But it turned out fun in the end and definitely made me laugh.
But overall, Krismas episodes make me smile... they are usually cheesy but oh well, they make me happy. Which is what Krismas should be. And usually it takes characters out of their usual every hari lives and adds in some fun and cute moments.
I also really like Valentines hari episodes and I absolutely Cinta the traditional Japanese festival holiday episodes. :)
