A Japanese pop culture welcome to the year of the snake

As we prepare to enter into the year of the snake, makers of anime, manga and games from AnoHana to Zetsuen no Tempest have gone online to offer their New Years well wishes, and in plenty of cases promote their 2013 projects or big anniversaries. So, before you kick off your own celebrations, share a bit of the festivities with your favorite Japanese pop culture.
