*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

Before you go on to read this review, make not that I have not watched the 2nd season and these were my initial impressions. I gave this anime a shot since all of the reviews rated it fairly well. I heard it'd be a harem anime with realistic events and drama, but truly, I wasn't prepared for what I actually experienced.
Let me be frank, I like harem anime: reverse or not, they're all fairly fun and I understand the flaws in harem anime. While this does not have the ridiculous situations of your usual harem anime, I don't exactly agree that all of these events read more

White Album Review:

(This review is for both seasons of White Album, which should be watched together as the second season has the show’s ending. Not to be confused with 2013’s White Album 2.)

It’s probably no surprise that you’ve never heard of this show. This is because frankly, nobody really likes it, and also because it was forgotten very quickly after it aired. The show itself has flaw upon flaw, building exponentially overtime, to which many viewers usually drop it whenever they get tired of the wonderful cast of assholes. To be completely honest, White Album is not a good show.

…So why is it that I 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
