*An underrated series with plenty of potential for its second season.*

“The beginning has ended.” - White Album

A year where internet does not exist.
A year where cassette tapes still dominates in the media industry.
A year where cell phone, the size of a brick, has just emerged in the market.
A year where the story of White Album takes place.

White Album often presents viewers with these muddy views of reality. There is often no clear distinction from right or wrong, good or evil. There is, however, often grief and suffering caused by various circumstances and misunderstandings. More often than not, people simply turn their head and walk away read more

Cheaters never win. They just end up banging a lot of chicks.

White Album is a true life story about what it means to be a guy in the real world. In fact, a lot of people will say that this anime is fake and that there is no way that, how many were there, three, no, SIX girls would want to jump the bones of Joe Average, but you know what?? It's real, kids! In fact, it helps a lot when said loser in question is a big tool. Girls like that stuff. What success that the main character of this anime is a read more

If you're seriously thinking of watching this, I would advice you to think twice.
The first thing you have to put in mind when watching this series is that the setting is 1986, when handphones were still not that common, and national idols still existed.

Story (5/10)
The story starts out very nicely, with very well-done introductions of the characters. We have the main guy who is dating the supposedly main girl, who is doing her best to be an artist. That's where everything goes down in an avalanche. It's a very plain romance drama with very little comedy and it drags along like a log. read more

Anime: Macross F
Both revolve around music and romance. In the case of WA, the male protagonist is a wimp. In the case of MF, the male protagonist is less of a wimp. BUT the selling point for both series are in their music, both have very strong female singer/seiyu and will not disappoint you in that regards.

Anime: Bokura ga Ita
This overall atmosphere of both of these anime's are similar. While Bokura ga Ita deals with relationships in an everyday setting, White Album sets theirs within the well-loved Idol industry. Both have drama, however White Album may be something for those who like the more intense side that drama can bring.

Anime: I''s Pure
Both anime have a couple of a boy in love with a beautiful pure girl who is becoming famous.

Anime: Kimi ga Nozomu Eien
Drama. That word defines what these two series have in similarity for starters. But of course, there's more than that between Kimi ga Nozomu Eien and White Album.

Both series has plenty of drama that is presented in a much more realistic and mature way than the typical school life romance series. Thus, expect love triangles, misunderstandings, trials, and even tragedies.

Both series also seem contain a psychological like mood also in subsequent episodes.

Both series' main protagonist has similar personalities and has a hard time in his life along with some of the other characters. Speaking of, the other characters are  read more
