No doubt it is going to be an amazing adaptation but sadly this is only the introductory chapter and I like the other chapters more. Also a completely different character design from the visual novel (at least the PC version), not sure if I like it more or not.


Designs 95% similar to PS3 version IMHO. Speaking honestly I don't like both designs much but at least this once looks less edgy than PC once.

Yup something I'm gonna watch... Can't wait for it.

Female leads don't look nearly as eye-catching as Yuki and Rina did. Not a good start for me.

Just finished watching the two seasons of the first White Album. I really liked it, so if this is better then I can't wait!

I don't know if these guys can be trusted. Anyone who doesn't put Aiyoku no Eustia in top 10 are like... ;_; They got no clue


Aiyoku no Eustia is great, very great but it isn't really a classic. AnU is definitely in the top 3 Visual Novels of 2011 but not of all time.


Well ye I guess, even though it's not anticipated as a classic, the storyline obviously brings something really good to the table. I find it really unique as in setting and storyline.

As of dark VNs it brings forth the dystopic setting extremely well

-2011, White Album 2 (Romance Drama)


Fixed this piece. :p WA PS3 ver was released in 2011 and the PC port was released in 2012 so if you put it like that, someone may be mistaken. Personally I trust erogamescape top list more than getchu award.



This is the best 100 eroges of all time by egs in the period from 1994 to 2011. 2012 adds some more titles to the list but they are nowhere near the top 10. Just skip to top 20 if you don't want to spend 25 minutes watching it. :p

Ah, and in case you wonder where Clannad, Symphonic Rain, Stein;Gate or Ever17 are. They are not eroge, thus not listed here. They have 90, 89, 90,90 medians in that order.

I'm just a little skeptical, knowing anime's track record of outstanding VN adaptations and all, but at least there's nothing messy like branching story-lines involved. Might be worth watching.

Awesome news!

But I can't understand all the bashing aganist the first white albume anime. I for myself foud it to be an outstanding and mature anime. Great plot, even greater music and enthralling atmosphere. One of my favourite romance animes. Even if some may didn't like the mc, that doesn't make the anime itself bad. And for the ending..memorable IMO:
