Happy New Year 2016 — Anime Style! Part III

posted on 2015-12-31 22:45 EST by Lynzee Loveridge

For generations, people in Japan have celebrated New Year's Day by sending specially designed cards — nengajō — to each other. As part of the tradition, postal workers store all the nengajō that are mailed in the final weeks of the old year, and then deliver every single one on New Year's Day. Many nengajō mark the Chinese Zodiac by depicting the animal of the year. (In 2016, that animal is the monkey.) Here are some New Year's greetings from the folks that will be bringing you anime, manga, and games in the new year.
