White Album 2 – Gadget Anime Review

One fall sunset, a month before the school festival.

The last remaining member of the light music club, Haruki Kitahara,

sits by the window playing the guitar.

It was the a last, little adventure

for a student who had been devoted to studies for the past two years.

However, when the notes of the guitar

are joined by a flowing piano and clear voice…

From one to two, from two to three, the new light music club

begins a new half-year that was like a dream, and should have been a dream.

This was my first interaction with this series, and it was quite enjoyable. Anime based on games usually have inside jokes and plot that only people familiar with the original game can understand, but I thought that this was the start of a nice drama that was enjoyable to everyone. This is most likely a romantic drama that doesn’t really try to draw people in with the usual Moe cuteness or harems, and so it would be great for people who are looking for that kind of true drama.

The famous White Album 2! I’m a bit sad that I haven’t seen the first season. The story seems like it will follow the love triangle between the main character and the two heroines. I haven’t seen this before, so I will have to do some research, especially since the game has been highly recommended to me. The art is good, and the voice actors are great! I liked the transition to the end credits during the last performance, it seemed like a TV drama series!

When I first heard about ‘White Album,’ I got excited and thought it was something about the Beatles…I guess I was wrong. But, a young guy with a cool looking blue Stratocaster shows up from the start, so it is about a band.

I’m not too knowledgeable about anime, but the art in this one is very good. The way they draw the light into the frame is bright and very pretty. These kids playing the instruments will probably start liking each other, but it probably won’t go the way they want…It makes me nostalgic for my own youth. I’d like to cheer them on, so I will probably watch the next episode as well.

I played the first White Album game, but haven’t seen any of the anime. It was actually sort of traumatic, so I had been avoiding it. The game itself is great, but I just couldn’t endure it back then. This time, when White Album played as the theme song I started getting this indescribable feeling. I will try to overcome my past trauma and watch this till the end…
