This Week in CRNews: Anime Expo Edition

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

I was actually tempted to title this Summer Heat Edition II, because it's still so hot, but there's something much bigger wrapping up today: Anime Expo! We've had plenty of news come through from the con over the weekend, as usual, and it's been fun following it all. Let us know if you were there this weekend, what your favorite announcements were, and more after the news 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.
