Anyone who watches the series straight through cannot help but notice that the animation quality is highly variable from one episode to the next. The animators for this particular episode were especially skillful and patient. It's of almost cinematic quality, hinting at what's to come in "Do You Remember Love".
Set in the days running up to Christmas, this episode shows how the holiday is celebrated somewhat differently in Japan as compared to the West. Christmas Eve is a romantic occasion; note the Christmas cake Mimmei and Hikaru share. This episode is the set-up for the resolution of the love triangle among Misa/Lisa - Hikaru/Rick - Minmei/Minmay in the finale and the final battle with Khyron.
