Nana, White Album 2 Recommendations
After watching White Album 2, do you have a taste for characters suffering? Well, look no further! Like WA2, Nana is also music-based, but that's not the main focus (though Nana has better songs). Nana is very strong in the drama/romance department, with believable characters making a mess of their lives, similar to WA2. Both start off lighter in tone, and then fall away into darkness. If you liked what you saw in WA2, I advise you to hop over to Nana-land immediately... and be prepared to shed black tears.
NANA and White Album 2 both leave the viewer with so much agony and sadness. I personally cried my eyeballs out watching both. Moreover, both have amazing music groups, heartbreaking love stories that leaves you feeling unsatisfied and extremely cruel reality checks. The only difference is that White Album 2 has a way much better ending in terms of story. Great drama/romance going on through out the whole anime.
Both animes focus on music , and although Nana may be more mature and realistic, White Album 2 also shows the complexity of relationships among the teenage characters of the series. Both are fantastic in terms of soundtrack as well.
