Spring is still a little while away, but Spring 2013 was a pretty good season with titles like Oreimo 2, Attack on Titan & Gargantia. This is what's announced for Spring 2014 so far:

Spring 2014
TV Series

Baby Steps

Haikyuu!!
Source Material: Manga
Genres: Shounen, Sports
Animation Studio: Production I.G. (Guilty Crown, Ghost In The Shell, Kuroko no Basket)
Amount of Episodes: Unknown (I'd guess around 25 since it is a sports series from Production I.G., but your guess is as good as mine.)
Synopsis:
A chance event triggered Shouyou Hinata's love for volleyball. His club had no members, but somehow persevered and finally made it into its very first and final regular match of middle school, where it was steamrolled by Tobio Kageyama, a superstar player known as "King of the Court." Vowing revenge, Hinata applied to the Karasuno High School volleyball club... only to come face-to-face with his hated rival, Kageyama!

A tale of hot-blooded youth and volleyball from the pen of Haruichi Furudate!!

It's been a thousand years since the Gauna, a strange alien race with no known method of communication, destroyed the solar system. A portion of humanity managed to escape using enormous "seed ships" like the Sidonia, which have allowed them to maintain the population while drifting through space. Nagate Tanikaze is a young man who has been raised deep in the bowels of the ship. When he goes into training to pilot the huge robotic weapons known as Gardes, Nagate is entrusted with piloting the legendary unit known as Tsugumori. Nagate and his fellow pilots put their lives on the line against the Gauna, in the ultimate battle for the survival of humanity!

La Corda D'Oro: Skipping. Sat through first season, was incredibly bored by it despite the great animation and music.

Sidonia no Kishi: Sounds interesting. I'll give this one a shot.

Love Live: Not interested.

Haikyuu: Not interested.

Baby Steps: Not interested.

Spring 2014 looks to be quite empty for me so far.

Hmmm....the blend of 2D and 3D character animation in the PV lends to a very cheap MMD look. Not sure I like it, but I'll have to see more before I make any final decisions. Thanks!

Tbh, the lineup is way too early to tell so I'll reserve full thoughts until later. However, I'll probably check out Baby Steps, Haikyu!! , Love Live! Season 2, and likely FSN if it gets announced as a Spring title.

Hoping for an epic Spring though.
