How does that have anything to do with it? It may take place in the '80s but it was made now. I'm not expecting panty shots every other frame, nor would I ask for that. But the best scene we got was that single frame in the second season.

They did a good job of subtly reminding you of the time period. You had the calendars, car phone, answering machine being a new product, and of course the lack of cell phones. I wonder how many people thought it was stupid they didn't have cell phones since they didn't know the time period is the mid '80s, lol.

It has a lot to do with it. Check out pretty much 90% of the serious romance titles from the 80s, and they won't have any fanservice. That's all i'm getting at.

But it's not like the source material didn't have anything.

As i've already explained, i'm just talking about my personally experiences with mature romance anime from the 80s, or set in that time period, and how they have little to no fanservice. I'm not talking about ero games.

That's it. I don't see why this topic needs to be dragged on any longer.

That is a complete photoshop. I don't really get the point of it either. I would say the guy is praying to Yayoi, but it looks more like a grave than a shrine, lol.

That's a really good AMV. I don't know why the guy killed Touya, Yayoi & Mana though. Maybe he was a Rina fan. It was funny how Yuki was totally absent. And what's the the clips from that shoujo series? Werid.

The two minute mark the great. It was so awesome when she went in tongue first. You can fault the guy all you want, but I don't think any of us could have resisted her seductions.

After watching, I definitely an anime lover of the 80's despite White Album was animated a little late.
I can't believe this anime ended just like that, I want to know what happened to the rest of the cast and even Touya.

Spoiler for I don't know if it's true:

Listening to the music from this series it is bringing back so many memories.

I'm adding this to my re-watch list when I'm done with school.

Any word on whether White Album 2 is getting an animated adaptation? I've been trying to track down who the seiyuus for White Album 2's characters are. I've heard that Hitomi Nabatame voiced Kazusa Touma (one of the main heroines) in a Drama CD for that game, but I have no idea whether she also voiced Kazusa in the game as well (not that such a thing would have been unwelcome).

I'm still a little miffed that Romi Park didn't sing in White Album anime (or even have a character song to sing herself)--she is by no means a slouch in that area. Was it because getting the rights for such superstars like Nana Mizuki and Aya Hirano (at least she was a superstar then) to sing too expensive? They got Rumi Shishido to sing, but was that only because Shishido is an independent and thus there was no need for the anime developers to pay an agency for her to sing?

I think that the undeniably successful sales of omnibus-style series like Yosuga no Sora and Amagami might inspire the developers of the White Album anime to make something that I believe would take away some of the sour taste the fans had with the anime. It's clear that Touya in the anime series has feelings for all of his "goddesses" already, so it would be too difficult to make branching stories that segue into character-specific endings--perhaps a 2 episode OVA for each could work.

I still rock the ED to the second season on my playlist. Suara is godlike.

PA Works should do White Album 2 when they're done with Another.

I just finished watching this series and I was very disappointed by it. Touya was not an easy guy to like at all and everything he did to all those girls was terrible.
