Winter 2014 Anime Season – First Impressions 2

As the winter season continues into it’s 2nd or 3rd week for some series, I thought I’d jot down some more of my first impressions on the season so far.

They still managed to keep up the energy from the first season, despite the cast being another year older.

The cast for voice actors/actresses is also pretty stacked with the voice actors of Kirito (SAO) and Ayase (OreImo) as main characters along with Hanazawa Kana, and Inoue Marina (Just naming a few) as supporting roles.
