Animefringe Coverage:
Anime's Wish List
By Team Animefringe and compiled by Steve Diabo

Well, folks, it is now December and all these colored lights, shopping mall mobs and sappy commercials can only mean one thing -- the holiday season is fast upon us indeed! While most of us have better things to think about, we here at Animefringe somehow formulated a strange question -- "What would our favorite anime characters want for the Holidays?" At once, our elite team of dishonorably discharged Green Berets and snotty computer hackers mobilized and headed for the North Pole to have a sneak peek at Santa's wish list database. Most of our hackers and one of the Green Berets valiantly gave their lives in the effort, but to show for it, we are now proud to publish but a small sampling of anime characters' holiday wish lists! Read and enjoy!
