Synopsis

Fall, when graduation is only half a year away.

Haruki Kitahara, the final member of the light music club that dissolved, plays his guitar by the window after school in preparation for the school festival. It was the one and only adventure of a good student who spent two diligent years on his studies.

But when a flowing piano melody and a voice as a clear as bell harmonize with his guitar… He goes from being alone, to being two, then three in the light music club, as the semester he dreamed of, no, hoped for, began.

It didn't take much to get me interested in this title. I saw "high school" and "music" and I was sucked in. I HAD to watch White Album 2. It wasn't until later that I found out this was also a love triangle anime. White Album 2 is one of those shows that manages to achieve a balance between its multiple elements without losing focus of its main objective. The story and characters of White Album 2 are unrelated to the first White Album anime (which I've heard, by all accounts, is mediocre). The show is based off of the "Introductory Chapter" of the visual read more

Visual novel adaptations have always had a notorious reputation in anime communities. Whether it be issues with pacing, narration, or some nonlinear route structure, these adaptations suffer from a variety of heated complaints from fans of the original source material, sometimes even as to have their very existence denied.

Thankfully, White Album 2 is not one of those adaptations.

Adapted from the ~introductory chapter~ segment of the bestselling Leaf visual novel of the same name, White Album 2 (henceforth referred to as “WA2”) manages to retain a lot of the strengths of the source material while approaching it in a different, but appropriate, fashion.

Recommendations

What do you get when two girls fall in live with the same guy? School Days is fairly similar to White Album 2 with the only major difference being that the main characters of WA2 prefers running away from their problems. But WA2 does not take it too extreme like what School Days did.
Series the contain love triangle relationship between the male lead and main female characters. The two shows are strikingly similar in their mature portrayal of relationship development. Characters make decisions in a realistic way, even though these decisions may seem despicable and may end up hurting other people.
