Google Doodles, 2017 (repost)

I've been collecting the links to the Google Doodle's that I find interesting, for several years now. For a while, there were so many science, math, Japan, animation, and game-related doodles that I had to split them up into 6-month groupings. 2017 hasn't been as good, though, and back in July I decided that I wouldn't post the links that I'd assembled at that time. Instead, I'd just dump them here in this post for the entire year all in one big blocks. And, here we are.
