Happy New Year from the Anime World 2019! Part IV

posted on 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 2019 is the Year of the Pig according to the Chinese zodiac, many of the greetings feature boars and piglets. Last year was the Year of the Dog, so you may also see references to dogs making way for the new animal of the year.

From all of us at Anime News Network, Happy New Year!
