Can a relationship between a regular college student and an idol singer survive? That is the question that White Album tries to answer. Touya Fujii is a normal college student with normal worries—namely balancing his classes and his job he works to pay for school. He is also concerned about the amount of time he has to spend with Yuki Morikawa, or rather, the lack of it.

Being an up and coming idol singer, Yuki has concerns of her own. Even though she's not yet as popular as experienced veteran Rina Ogata, Yuki is turning heads and landing interviews on television. This should be a good thing, but not everyone is happy about the attention she receives from the media and from Rina. The idol industry is surprisingly cutthroat, and rival singers have their eyes on Yuki.

While it may seem exciting to watch your girlfriend on television, how does Touya really feel about all this? Between the challenges associated with Yuki's career and other people that Touya meets at his university, their relationship may not last…

I am far too lazy to write a proper review, so I will do it in bullet points about whats caught my attention.


- The series is set in 1986. The sole purpose for this is because characters have busy schedules, and without cellphones, they keep missing eachother everytime they call and leave voice messages instead.

I cannot stress how this is a central point in the show. It feels very frustrating (in a good way), and makes me appreciate the fact we have smartphones today. A lot of the drama and heartbreak could be avoided by talking to your loved one at the right time. They ...

Mixed Feelings
“White Album” is what happens when You write a romance with most of the characters feeling sorry for themselves and meddle in other people's affairs. Yes I know, I know… it’s an anime and a drama so I shouldn't expect characters acting like functioning adults. My mistake.

It’s a romance, harem story about a guy having problems adapting to the reality that his girlfriend is an idol and everything that implies. Yeah… let’s be honest, he’s a fool (not an idiot, it looks like he’s aware of his harem) most of the time but an opportunistic idiot so I have to respect that. There are ...

Well watched this because i was bored but this is so hard to watch this is the same as School Days to compare it to something (maybe school days was based on this game) i watched all episodes and wondered when the guy was gonna be punched by the the dad,the friend or someone else yet 13 episodes and nothng no repercusion of his actions.
Well seeing as this started as eroge in 1998 using the same seiyuus (reason of why is fake and unreal) there isn't enjoyment and is just depressing.
The description is really wrong and poorly made since there is no love,Yuki does ...
