We Wish You a Merry Christmas is the 12th episode of Aikatsu! TV anime series and the 12th episode of its "1st Season" (1年目(サードシーズン) lit. "First Year"). The episode aired on December 24, 2012.


Ichigo volunteers to help out for a Christmas Party and happens to notice the usually energetic Yuna Nakayama is feeling depressed. Wanting everyone to have the best Christmas they possibly can, Ichigo is prepared to go to great lengths to ensure Yuna's happiness.


Everyone is busy setting up for the upcoming Christmas party when the others find Ichigo struggling to get the Christmas Tree from the storage room. With a little help they manage to finish decorating and Ichigo voices excitement regarding the party and spevial Christmas Event. Ran points out that if this is the case they should be making time to practice as well. They start to discuss how they got involved in this, starting with Ichigo volunteering herself, followed by Aoi who points out that they can work together for the party and still train, and finally the hesitant Ran. 

As everyone prepares to leave the room, Ran happens to spot a mysterious shadow from the window. But as she tries to look, she is unable to determine what it is. 

In a kitchen, everyone decides to set up the Christmas dinner by dividing the parts so that everyone can finish quickly. However, everyone keeps needing Ichigo's aid, while Otome tastes-tests the foods. Ichigo claims that she doesn't mind helping everyone, but soon finds herself worn out. Ran asks if this is common of her, and after Aoi confirms that it is, she explains that it's only because Ichigo wants everyone to be happy. 

As Ichigo continues her work, she happens to see a classmate that seems to be pretty down. They consider this strange, since Yuna is usually a very perky and lively girl. They go to question it, and Yuna expresses sadness in that her parents are all the way back in America. Since they are busy with work they can't come this year to celebrate Christmas and see the tree like usual. As Ichigo hears this, she makes a promise to Yuna, saying that she will get that very Christmas Tree from her memories and bring it back to her. 

As they start to leave Ran asks if it was really okay for Ichigo to make such a big promise. Ichigo believes that it will all work out though, and they go over the idea of cutting down a tree from the school grounds, only to see the strange man Ran spotted earlier. He explains that he is from a network that wishes to broadcast the Christmas special the school plans to be holding later, and afterwards he mentions observing the girls in a natural light, Ran grows mildly annoyed. 

After Ichigo recalls a tree she saw back on Angely Mountain, they decide to head over there instead of cutting down a tree from school. She thinks it would be perfect but the others express concern that they won't be able to get back to school. The man offers to let the girls take his vehicle as long as he can keeps filming them, so they take up his offer. 

They quickly arrive while admiring the beautiful snow falling around them and when they find the tall tree, they work to chop it over. Ichigo decides the best way to get it down the hill is to ride it like a sled and when they get to the bottom, the gardener from Angely Sugar's building comes to land a hand. They use his vehicle and when they arrive back to school the man takes off.

Johnny runs over to the girls to ask about the tree and they explain their plans of using it for Christmas. Ran points out that they need to hurry up though, or else they will be late for the Special Event. Their classmates and friends, minus Yuna, come by to help and they offer to tend to the tree and finish everything so that the four can go and finish their work for the Special. The girls head to the waiting room and run into the changing area when they spot the Broadcast the man earlier was making. Everyone is amazed by this and Orihime congratulates them and gives everyone a special coord to use for Special before they run to change. They reappear on a stage and perform "We Wish You A Merry Christmas".

When they finish, Yuna heads outside and to her surprise, spots the giant Christmas Tree, just like the one back in New York. She turns to spot her Parents as well. While she embraces them, the four idols watch from the distance before they change into special Christmas costumes to celebrate the party. Ran being somewhat upset over the silly reindeer suit she got stuck wearing, but slowly she grows into it. Mizuki then surprises everyone when she shows up for the party as well, and together everyone cheers for the holiday.

Meanwhile, the headmistress is discussing something with someone, involving her plans of putting Ichigo and Mizuki together after the Holiday comes to an end.
