The CRNews team welcomes you to the year 2012! Did you watch the ball drop and get your Lady Gaga or Justin Bieber fix? Or maybe you killed time until the midnight hour by marathoning your favorite anime? However you celebrated, we hope it was more fun than you expected New Year's Eve to be—because really, it's just another day, right? Not on CRNews, it's not!
Going forward in 2012, we hope you'll continue to spend some of your precious remaining moments on this Earth with us perusing the latest anime, manga, and videogame news as usual. We'll be doing our best to report it even if the ancient Mayan calendar prophecy turns out to be true!
