This Week in CRNews: Oh So Verdurous Edition

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

What, you think I had trouble coming up with a relevant theme for this week's news recap? Hey, Gargantia just happens to be on my mind, ok? Also, the latest episode came out earlier today, and it's good stuff! I think at this point I've usually dropped more shows, but I'm keeping up with a healthy handful this season. But enough talk, have at that 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.
