Yui Horie -- White Xmas

Having seen seiyuu Yui Horie(堀江由衣)earlier in the summer for the hit anime "Danberu Nan-Kiro Moteru?"(ダンベル何キロ持てる?...How Heavy Are the Dumbbells You Lift?)as the often tsukkomi-happy Tachibana-sensei, I had to remind myself that she was also the creator and voice behind the adorable Miss Monochrome(ミス・モノクローム)just a few short years ago. Maybe it's time to review the first season from "Miss Monochrome" once more.

I recall that there was an Xmas episode in that first season in which Miss Monochrome, to add onto her other incredible experiences, even met jolly St. Nick. As such, I was able to find a suitably Yuletide number with Miss Monochrome singing "White Xmas" which was released as a single in December 2015. But this has nothing to do with the Bing Crosby classic. It is a Horie original with her providing the lyrics while Kyo Nakanishi(仲西匡)took care of the music and arrangement. nice to see Miss M performing in Omotesando, one of the key sites for all things Xmas-y in Tokyo. "White Xmas" peaked at No. 48 on Oricon.
