    As with all the Christmas episodes, there are lots of great New Year's episodes as well. While I have to think about it a bit and recall all of them, these two are definitely going to be my nominations:

    Aria the Animation ep. 13: That White Morning
    My Love Story!! ep. 18: My Birthday
    MyAnimeList | Avatar: Asirpa, Golden Kamuy
    Watching: Utawarerumono: The False Faces, Golden Wind
    Simulcasts: HZG, DKD, FRB, KGY, TOA-R, OGF, 8NT, ART, BNA, GLP. KKG, LSN, SKT, SBA, YFM, TOG, WLN, A3A, PCR, SHV
    The only thing better than anime is sports. Get hit hard and you got JACKED UP! Or else it's a C'mon Man!

      I'll second these two, and add the following:

      Tamayura Hitotose Ep. 12: "A Brand New Year"
      Love Live! Season 2 Ep. 10: "μ's"

        Make my vote a third one for this episode as well along with these:

        You're Under Arrest! Episode 14, "Manju Terror! Natsumi's Edo Escapade": While scarfing down some leftover manju from the Traffic Section's hot springs trip the week before, Natsumi slips & hits her head on the break room floor. When she wakes up, she finds herself back in the Edo Era as a detective trying to solve a series of murders involving manju, hot springs & maple leafs!

        Ghost Sweeper Mikami Episode 37, "The Battle's Celebration for the New Year!!": Reiko, Yokoshima & Okinu are in a race with other Ghost Sweepers with the prize being having a wish granted by a seer that appears every 1,000 years & then on New Year's.

            Reminders that nominations and voting end today. (Though, I think as usual, I don't mind some after the fact nominations tomorrow. Poll closes in 14 hours though.)

            ...

            Three pretty recent New Year/Eve episodes I had in the back of my mind:

            Pet Girl of Sakurasou, ep. 15: "Where is My Usual Self" (The girls follow Sorata home because they can't stay in the dorm over break. Particularly like Misaki getting the rose back in her cheeks at the New Year's Day sunrise, when she realizes, from Mashiro's timely question, why she should be happy again. And Sorata's family, of course, is suitably crazy.)

            Non Non Biyori ep. 10: "We Watched the First Sunrise of the Year" (Really kind of the perfect New Year's Eve episode, with all the trappings. Siblings home from the city, Natsumi (and Kazuho) lazying around...but I forgot this is the flashback episode to Kaede's bonding with Renge as a baby, which is worth the price of admission by itself.)

            Punch Line eps. 6 & 12: "It's New Year's Eve, Meikaemon" & "Punch Line" (The whole show takes place in the last couple weeks of the year, leading up to the predicted end of the world on New Year's Eve, so kind of obvious. And difficult to divide these two since they are kind of the same thing... 12's the finale; but 6 is the most fun, with Meika's karaoke style info dumping for Ito, plus an end of the world party, of sorts.)

              Mainly seconding several choices already noted (Aria the Animation ep. 13: "That White Morning," Pet Girl of Sakurasou, ep. 15: "Where is My Usual Self," Non Non Biyori ep. 10: "We Watched the First Sunrise of the Year") and would like to add Maria-sama ga miteru ~Haru~ (Season 2) Episode 1 "During the Long Night" and Azumanga Daioh Episode 8 "Osaka's New Year's Dream / In Tomo-chan's Case / In Sakaki's Case / Welcome / In Kaorin's Case"

                I figured someone would get to it, so I abstained, but yeah, this one's a classic just for that segment.

                  Re: TFP's Anime List Project #14: New Year's

                  Previously, I gave two nominations:
                  Originally posted by Buckeye View Post
                  Aria the Animation ep. 13: That White Morning
                  My Love Story!! ep. 18: My Birthday
                  So after thinking about it some more, here are my other three nominations.

                  Azumanga Daioh
                  ep. 8: Osaka's New Year's Dream / In Tomo-chan's Case / In Sakaki's Case / Welcome / In Kaorin's Case
                  Lucky Star ep. 12: Let's Go to the Festival
                  Tamako Market ep. 1: That Girl is the Cute Daughter of a Mochi Shop Owner

                  I think I'm pretty sure which episode is going to win the vote seeing that just about everybody is nominating it.

                        The funniness of the scene is partly due to the stylistic feel of the phrase 'おんぶして。 (Onbu-shité.)'
                        'Onbu' is a baby-talk word, and it tends to have a connotation that the person who is carried on someone's back is a small child. So the twenty-something woman Miyauchi Kazuho's saying to Miyauchi Hikage, 'おんぶして。' is odd and funny.
