The holiday episode is a staple for slice-of-life shows!
(Spoilers in this review)
And unfortunately for Raphiel (and, to a lesser extent, Satania) fans, Vigne and Gabriel dominate this episode while the other two play supporting roles. Oh, well, you can’t win ’em all. Raphiel still has some marvelous faces in this episode, however, so yay.
There’s not much to say besides the fact that this week’s episode was more of the usual for Gabriel DropOut, really.
The episode was split into three parts. The first part happens during Christmas Eve (which is actually more important than the actual day of Christmas in Japan for some reason). Vigne attempts to make Satania overlook the fact that Christmas is supposed to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ through distractions, but she resorts to force once Satania realizes the significance of Christmas day.
The second part of the episode has the group visiting a shrine to celebrate New Years’ Eve. The four girls get to experience human culture and customs fo themselves and all is basically well – until Gabriel gets drunk off amakaze (the fermented rice drink that’s either non-alcoholic or low-alcoholic).
The last segment has the girls visiting home. Gabriel and Raphiel is bound for Heaven while Vigne and Satania is headed towards Hell. Gabriel attempts to dress up in order to sneak games into Heaven, but things don’t really work out.
