So, do you have to have (played?) White Album to understand what's happening in this one?

I hope not, because the first episode was pretty good.

No not really. None of the characters are the same or anything. This is just a show taking place with a new club 10 years in the future. That first ep was fantastic.

There are some very minor call backs (mentioning yuki's album) but the previous characters have nothing to do with this anime, its set 10 years on after all (so the characters from the previous would all be like 31+)

I loved the first episode! Wow, that was unexpectedly good. The ending, wow! Season could almost end right there though we know from the (different from the VN presentation) greek drama display of the concert first and what happens after... we know that there is much more to come but I almost don't want to think about that right now as the ending was so beautiful.

The song "White Album"

ep 1

I don't think I've seen the previous White Album anime so I'm just jumping into this one (kind of like I did for The Unlimited Hyobu Kyousuke and Zettai Karen Children)

I'm so glad I watched this episode, the music, its fantastic!

the character designs are perfectly ok with me as well, I needed another slice of life drama romance so this was great

This one surprised me. Very little buzz about it compared to other anime premiering this week, and ... beautiful music, good animation, attractive character designs, interesting premise. I agree that the first episode could easily be left as a standalone and still be appreciated, but there is plenty more to come. ... Looking forward to it.

Crunchyroll still has the original White Album, so, if i like WA2, I can always go back and have a look at that one, even though I read some pretty uncharitable things about the main character.

I don't usually go into the CR forums but I'm here to hype this anime as not a lot of people are realising how great this anime is. The screenplay is done by the VN writer himself so it's not going to change much from the VN so that is a big plus for those of us who have played/read the VN. You do not need to watch the first White Album anime (the adaptation is a POS anyway) as the only thing that's linking it together is the songs. And if you did watch the first WA, please do yourself a favour and take a chance on this sequel.

I enjoyed the first episode of WA2. It's good to know that WA1 is regarded by others as a POS. I tried to watch it, and after 6 episodes I gave up. It seems that the protagonist of WA1 (Mr. Doormat and goes with the flow) is the polar opposite of WA2's protagonist (Sees an opportunity to make things better and goes for it). And, the girlfriend in WA1 wasn't much better.

For those who have a PS3 and a Japanese account (and able to read some Japanese ), you can actually download the Introductory Chapter (which this anime is going to adapt) from the PSN store and see for yourself what you could also be missing.

I have a japanese PSN account, but I can't read Japanese, and I have no idea how to navigate the new JP PSN storefront..
