WARNING!! MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS!!
This show actually is a miscellaneous batch of skits and singing and interviews. Act I is the skits, and because this show ran around Christmas time, that's the theme. First the prologue, with Asaji singing while all the main players come out to take their turn with her and get introduced: Minoru Kou, Shiraki Ayaka, Emao Yuu, Tsukikage Hitomi, and Kozuki Wataru.
Skit One - Christmas Present
The future. A lonely human (Minoru Kou as Adam) is tended by a bunch of androids in space, who then kidnap Earth maidens for him as a Christmas present. He's apparently forgotten how to love, until he finds the one (Tsukikage Hitomi as Eve). Happiness. Androids Wataru (Roy) and Ryou Akino (Lea) also discover love and turn human.
Skit Two - The Last Christmas
A convicted criminal (Asaji Saki) is sentenced to be executed on Christmas. From his cell he sings the blues about his girl (Shiraki Ayaka) and how he just wants to hear her one more time. She appears in his memory... and sings.
Skit Three - Miracle Christmas
This skit is the longest. Imagine this: Minoru Kou as a Kiss-style death metal rocker radio DJ, Emao Yuu as the nerdy high school student, Asaji as the local bad-boy, rocker, and Ayaka as the prissy daughter of the woman who funds the high school. Now imagine this: Ayaka's character falls in love with Asaji's, and then as they're both talking next to the Christmas tree during a huge rain storm — lightning strikes! And.. they switch bodies. Now imagine Asaji running around acting all prissy and Ayaka running around saying "ore."
Act II begins the more revue-esque portion of the show. First an opening number with suits and ankle warmers, and then Noru and Ayaka do some absolutely drop-dead sexy blues numbers. Then a section of Michael Jackson songs. And then the last section was solos followed by an interview where they were all asked the question: What's the most awful mess-up you've ever done on stage?
Any other interesting or important stuff.
