THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
IT BEGINS. I was actually listening to one of the theme songs for White Album 2 last night so was excited to see how this episode will go.

Touma looked great this episode in that outfit. Dem feels though: http://i.imgur.com/lAxWhHC.png
Seems like Setsuna is telling her feelings as well. Dat kiss.

I can sense the drama that's gonna happen. That concert was nice. Liked that guitar solo from Sound of Destiny.

WOAH!! They friggin kissed!! O_O

Totally didn't expect him to accept the kiss esp after they showed him thinking about Kazusa when Setsuna told him he can dodge. Everything was hinting that he liked Kazusa more O_o?

U're totally screwed if u wanted to go after Kazusa now Haruki. That kiss after the promise is like a seal of eternity with Setsuna. I don't think he thought about it like that XD

And u'd be a total ass if u kissed Setsuna when u don't love her (which is I think is what happened)!!!

Still loved it. Setsuna was really beautiful and her straight forwardness is definitely commendable. She might've just got the win in her pocket because she made the first move like that ^^

Felt bad for Kazusa when they showed us her hat while they were kissing.

Loved the concert too. Sooo good!!! Wished we got to hear the 3rd song though :(

Well really good ep. The drama shall commence!! And again loved the kiss!!! The visuals were brilliant! <3

I already heard the songs from the VN soundtrack but it was nice to see the flashbacks during them.

I like Touma more but wow that kiss while holding hands was really romantic. I thought Haruki liked Touma but I think it was more of an admiration especially due to those lines where he refers to her as a person rather than a girl like he did for Setsuna. That's not to say that I think he likes Setsuna, at least not at this point.

Yes, best fucking episode. Then shit will happen later.

Loving those Kazusa vs Setsuna poses during their performance.

And I guess it's stupid of me that I was expecting an erotic/French kiss like how it's on the VN.

Still slightly worried by what it means by "the last and greatest day" in the episode title...

And the line at the end of the last episode as well...

Are things really about to fall apart?

I've been watching this series as something to relax to. If it suddenly turns into some kind of tragic drama it would be kind of disappointing. There's enough of that stuff around at the moment already.

As always, Touma only said a few words, and Setsuna talked a lot. And the unspoken words took me on a train to the FEEL trip.
ALL DEM FEEL, and I'm not complaining :)
Haruki, you better wake up now, AND regret it later.

Well, if we're going to speak the very ending of White Album 2(Not the Introductory Chapter which is this season), we still don't know which ending will be adapted if it'll be either Touma's or Setsuna's since both are True Endings.

That's the direction this anime's been going to since the very start, hence the foreshadowing from the first episode.

As long as they do the drama correctly, there's nothing to be disappointed about, because I'm confident that this anime will show how drama and tragedy should be done without being cheesy, excessive and unreasonable forced like the majority of other romantic dramas.

Don't get me wrong. I do like that sort of thing. It's just I like to have a nice relaxing series to watch every evening, and this series has up to now been filling one of those slots. There isn't much of that sort of thing around this season, and watching non non biyori every evening would be overkill, however great that series is.

So yeah, the disappointment I was speaking of wasn't the "this series is going down the drain" style of disappointment.
It probably just means reaching into some of my backlog of DVDs though.

The trainwreck begins now....
Such a great episode. I'm really loving the soundtrack, I can't wait for it to be released.
Setsuna sure doesn't beat around the bush. Hate to say it, but her confession scene was really good.
I'm still rooting for Touma though.

I honestly think he's going to choose Touma. But I like Setsuna and Touma equally so I don't want to see either of them get hurt.

This part hurt. I thought he liked Kazusa.

I meant it in a positive way. This is gonna turn into a roller coaster of emotions, and I'm so looking forward to it.

Best OST of the season -- no, probably of the year -- confirmed.

I'm not sure how to interpret Kitahara's own feelings. If translations are accurate, he referred to Kazusa as "the person who he always wanted to be friends with" and Setsuna as "the girl he always admired." Kazusa had her chance to confess, but seemed to have given it up because she thinks it's already an indirect rejection. I can't imagine how any guy could've rejected Setsuna's confession at that point, but still, I can't help but feel something's off. I wonder what would've happened if Kazusa confessed first, given that Kitahara was thinking of her before he accepted Setsuna's feelings?...

Anyway, the fact that they've reserved 6 more episodes for the drama that follows is a good indicator that this ride won't be smooth. As Setsuna's already taken the prize so to speak, we're probably in for a heartbreak.

Oh man, I thought Haruki likes Touma for a second.
IF HE ACCEPTED Setsuna, he better acts like a man and don't hurt her feelings later on by going back by words and chose Touma ...
But base on the number of episode left, oh man, I don't know if my heart's gonna withstand all of those drama ...........
Anyway, I like everything about this episode, from the music, to the directing(stage, events), and even the confession scene was beautifully done. There's hardly any tri-love romance which makes me enjoy like WA2. For now the show is a solid 8 in my list. If everything stays the same(or even better) later on, I will not hesitate to give it a 9. Best tri-love romance I've seen so far, up to this episode.

I think he was very much caught in the moment, pretty much seduced by Setsuna with her way of words.

I don't know I should be happy or not...

Kitahara kissed Setsuna,
but he thought about Touma,
and I have feeling that because of this kiss in this episode,
in this part of story he will end up with Touma,
but I rooting for Setsuna...
also this "preview, spoilers" from 1st episode...

Also this "Because the girl I've always admired came down to be with me, and I finally got to know the person I've always wanted to be friends with."
I think girl who he always admired was Touma,
but he don't know Touma is pianist from next class,
but he sit next to see some also this song...

Eh... well... if he kissed Setsuna without romatic feelings he will be a**h***.

Outside this...
Concert was perfect!
"Sound of Destiny" I prefer Mizuki Nana version,
but Setsuna version is cool too,
but Nana is better xD

Generally great episode...
now I must prepare my heart for drama in rest episodes.

Ah my girl Setsuna makes her move. Finally I've been waiting for her to confess to Haruki. My thoughts on the kiss scene: http://images.wikia.com/video-game-championship-wrestling/images/9/94/Daniel_Bryan_YES.gif

I think Haruki admires Touma as a person only. Although the previous episode we see Setsuna sort of have that sad feeling when she reads the lyrics for the 3rd song due to it being a song for Touma I suppose. Still with 6 episodes left I think we'll see a roller coaster drama with Setsuna and Touma.

Pls be Touma

I wish they could've at least shown the third song. I want to know the lyrics, dammit!

Expecting a lot of drama in the episodes to come. Also, anyone here played the game? Because I think I've figured out how the ending's gonna play(but leading to that point, no), and I just wanna know if I got it right or not(via PM, of course)

Really good pacing this episode. The confession surprised me, especially the kiss. Like, BAM! Wow. Also, yay for saxophone solo. xD I'm rooting for Setsuna because I still don't like Touma's "shut up" attitude even if she's awesome at music. But it's obvious who he'll end up with sighhhh

Rating stays at solid 7 if the last few episodes can stay at this consistency.

One of the Best Romance Anime Show This Season along with Golden Time and Nagi No Asukara. May also be a candidate for the best romance show of 2013. This series is just awesome. I don't get why WA2 is underrated. So Many people are missing out on this great show.

Let the DRAMA and the TRAIN WRECK of emotional disasters begin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Let the MANLY TEARS flowing out begin as well!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Man, this show is just beyond awesomeness for a romance type of anime. I can't decide on who's to pick. They're equally gorgeous imo. Can't really decide between Touma and Setsuna. Both are equal so far.

What a turn around victory for Setsuna !!

And I heard that in the VN the kiss scene is actually a sex scene ? Or perhaps perhaps it was a trolling comment that I read?

So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.
