This Christmas, why not give the gift of anime? At least that’s what we thought while putting together our own Secret Santa exchange! Tune in to see what Holly, Peter, David, and our editor, Marcelo, “gifted” each other as our members watched through recommended anime they hadn’t seen before. Twwk hosts this wintry episode of the TangleCast, which also features a Christmas-themed version of “Anime or Ani-Made Up” and, as always, your responses to our Cast Question. So cozy up next to your laptop, drink a hot chocolate in a spill-proof container, and enjoy our Secret Santa episode! Ho ho ho!

And we want your feedback as well! Each week we ask a question on the podcast and feature your answers on the next episode. Here’s this week’s only slightly cruel CQ (Cast Question): When did you find out there was no Santa Claus?
- This episode was based on the Secret Santa Project, an aniblogger Secret Santa tradition that our friends at Reverse Thieves held each year, and one we often participated in. All Geeks Considered has taken up the mantle this year—check out their site on Christmas Day to see all the wonderful posts that come out of it!
- If you want to recommend series to our podcast team, or just want to see what they’re watching, David, Peter, Holly, and Marcelo all have Anilist accounts.
- Btw David made the Instagram feed of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary during graduation (twice).
- Also, actual gif of David “making his music.”
- Wanna find out more about the anime we mentioned in this episode? Well, we’ve written about the Azumanga Daioh and Toradora Christmas episodes and My Santa OVA.
- We also looked at the connection between Tomoe and Christ in Rurouni Kenshin, how Menma’s mom responds to her death in Anohana, and blogged every episode of the new Kino’s Journey, including the one about exploding sheep:
