This Week in CRNews: Livin' in the Past Edition

Hot news, big features, and stories you may have missed!

One of our biggest stories this week was Adult Swim's April Fools' gag, which had it running an entire block of classic Toonami programming. It was nostalgic for many, and really showed the power that period of television had in initiating a whole new generation of anime fans. What about you? Was that one of your gateways into this wild world? Let us know after the recap!


Below you'll find a bevy of hot stories, features and video posted throughout the week. But that's not all. We've also compiled a few stories we missed, so be sure to check those out, as well.
