What’cha Watching? - Spring Anime 2014 Survival Guide!

Spring Anime 2014 Survival Guide! @Crunchyroll

With all the new anime coming out this season that seemed fairly interesting, I went through quite a few of the new series and decided to write a review of the bigger ones. Of course, there are many more that you can watch. For example, the third part of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, and the second season of Mushi-shi. This is just a rundown of a couple of the other anime that stuck out to me.
