Our five protagonists are summoned by a pink wombat who gives them the power to turn into princes to fight against the evil. As the premises say, it's a show full of gags and a bit of a parody of magical girls shows, but whatever, we loved it!

Among all the princes in the show, the one with a passion for girls was Ryuu Zaou, alias “Thrilling Prince, Battle Lover Vesta”. This cute little pink time-bomb is depicted as a cheater, but don't be fooled! He is bound to give you a very interesting Christmas. Ryuu is playful and jovial.

Among the amazing characters we can find in Hachimitsu to Clover, we believe that the best to spend Christmas with is Yuuta Takemoto!

Takemoto looks younger than he actually is, and is often mistaken for a sophomore. But he is not one to feel down about it; on the contrary he usually plays along. This boy is not that tall, but he is a cutie pie that will make you fall head over heels. He is serious, and yet so easy to be with that your Christmas will probably be all about long conversations on pretty much anything, and end with both of you on a Ferris wheel. How romantic!
