Why the hell would they? She was already Ogata Rina. And WA2 is in the same universe as the original.

Please. 24 episodes to cover Intro, Closing, Coda, all going Setsuna route is more than enough.

It depends on what you mean by this. WA2 has the superior... plot/story? But WA1 presentation and characterization really stomp all over WA2 (talking game-to-game of course.)

Kazusa Touma(冬馬 かずさ) voice - Hitomi Nabatame
Three additional significant characters exist, who are winnable heroines in the WA2 game. They are:

Sugiura Koharu - voiced by Nagata Yoriko, best known for her role as Jun Suzuki from K-ON!

Izumi Chiaki - voiced by Habuki Risato, no significant mainstream anime roles yet.

Kazaoka Mari - voiced by the veteran Asakawa Yuu, best known for being Megurine Luka's voice provider for the Vocaloid software and the role of Rider from Fate/Stay Night.

Excuse me for a second . . . . *($^@#(*!&#*%&^@*#^$*%_^!!!!!! . . . . okay, now that the rage is out of my system, I'm amazed that they didn't get the crew and director behind Yosuga no Sora for this series. A major reason follows below:

Spoiler for Possible spoiler (though its non-specific):

I also wanted the Yosuga no Sora team because of the possibility of another omnibus adaptation. The main two heroines of the game are Kazusa and Setsuna, but it would be a damn shame if the other three I mentioned get reduced to minor characters or just cameos--by all accounts their own stories were excellently written and deserve to get the "full treatment" in an omnibus anime adaptation.

I hope a mod starts a White Album 2 game thread in the gaming forum so those of us who are interested in the game but don't know Japanese (and the translation project hasn't had any updates for more than a year now) can learn about it there.

Incidentally, will Nagata Yoriko, Nabatame Hitomi, and Asakawa Yuu get a chance to sing in this series? None of them are slouches at singing and I'm surprised that they didn't get the chance to do so in the original PC game and its all-ages PS3 port.

In any case, whoever's pumped for the release of this anime should listen to a bunch of "character trailer clips" on youtube here. All the heroines are involved and I'm sure those of us who understand Japanese would enjoy listening to what they have to say.

I mean because apparently quite a lot of people have negative opinion of WA for some reason...

@Mazryonh: Don't believe what "you've dig up" because it's wrong. There's sexual factor in WA2 but it's minor and isn't the main theme of the story. Psychological, not sexual.

Presentation... maybe, characterization... no, not even close.

Regarding artwork, WA1 PS3 is better than WA2 (leaf's 3 golden artist trio worked on it wherease WA2 only has Nakamura Takeshi). However, if you take directing, narrating into account, WA is inferior. In WA1, you have to choose the direction system at the beginning of the day and if you don't have enough points of a certain character, you'll only get the same typical "working/greeting/getting tired" dialogues instead of heroine events and then the day ends. Whereas, in WA2, from the beginning to the end, the story is presented to you like a well-directed movie.

The personalities of Haruki, Setsuna and Kazusa are much more complex than that of Touya, Yuki and Rina. In term of depth, the main love polygon in WA isn't even comparable to the double love triangle in Koharu's route in WA2, not to mention the core story.

50 episodes seems overkill....

Does it has so much content to begin with ?

Sorry. The story of 50 is probably wrong.

4 cour wouldn't be so surprising.

There are 2 parts to the game anyway, while WA only has 1 part. Though the question is, how long are they going to run it?

HAHA, TIME FOR TRAINWRECKS AND RAGE!

...Or so I'd like to say, but everything points in a very different direction. Every single comment I've read on the web about this game worships it as a romance masterpiece (though there were also good comments on fortune arterial, and look how that turned out), so it seems to be another kind of beast altogether. I'm fine with that, whether it's a worthy competitor to Kimi ga iru no machi or Ef-a tale of memories, I'm looking forward to it already.

So, it seems the characters are quite different this time around, huh? Good, maybe this time the heroine won't have the intellect of a ten year old with brain problems, though I'll definetly miss Rina's awesomeness.

How can you have a trainwreck without rage? Is the story that much of a convoluted disaster?

Because you can be a sadist who watches solely to seem them suffer

What if their suffering is the source of the rage?

Ok, before continuing this, I'll assume this is going to have concentrated melodrama.

That would be crazy. You'd have to really drag out IC to make it 13 episodes...
