The main heroine of this anime is a girl named May, who claims to be Santa Claus and wants a young man to believe in her so she can bring gifts to kids on Christmas. The boy was born on Christmas Eve, so his parents chose the name Santa for him. Santa hates Christmas not just because of his name but also because of his parents who never celebrate with him Christmas or his birthdays since he lives with his grandmother.
Throughout the anime, May and Santa develop a strong bond as May tries to help him overcome his childhood trauma. As the two of them become close, May slowly discovers the hidden truth about Santa’s past and why he hates Christmas.

Will May be able to convince Santa to believe in Christmas? Watch to find out.
