Happy New Year from the Anime World 2018!

posted on 2018-01-01 00:00 EST by Lynzee Loveridge

New Year's is the most important holiday in Japan, with families gathering to share big feasts and visit their local temple. New Year's cards (nengajō) are often sent to friends, family and acquaintances. Figures from the anime, manga and video game fields draw their own (usually featuring their own characters) and share them with the rest of us online. Here, then, is ANN's annual New Year's greetings round-up. As 2018 is the Year of the Dog according to the Chinese zodiac, many of the greetings feature puppers and good boys.

We'll have more greetings posted soon!
