Day 12: Lerxst’s Anime Secret Santa — Ichigo Mashimaro
First off, Merry Christmas to all of you. And if you’re Jewish, I hope you had a Happy Hanukkah. I’m killing two birds with one post on this one, doing a 12 Days post and my Secret Santa all in one. I’m not breaking any rules here. In fact, this show was one of my favorite things I watched this year, so it’s totally acceptable to do. Yes, I participated in Secret Santa this year. It’s the first time I’ve ever done this so I wasn’t exactly sure what I was getting myself into. But it didn’t turn out too bad. I ended up getting to watch this show. It was either this or Ikkitousen or Himitsu: Top Secret. The shoujo/psychological tags for Himitsu piqued my interest at first, but I think it was the first line of the MAL description that tipped the scale for me. It is, and I’m quoting here, “Cute girls doing cute things in cute ways”. Plus it’s one of kevo’s favorite anime shows ever. It just felt right to pick Ichigo Mashimaro over the other two.
