Another sleeper hit this season for me, along with Galilei Donna.

I really like the color palette they are using for this show, along with how important music is in the plot.

And man, what a cliffhanger...if ya know what I mean... xD

Another great episode. Loving the writing here. The author(s) is / are going to great pains to flesh out this triangle and give each character a distinct personality and set of motivations. It helps, too, that our main character is very intelligent and conscious of any social missteps or potentially bad decisions he makes.

Fantastic Episode 2. This is one of only 3 shows so far this season that leaves me wanting more. and the great music is a huge plus.

We get a bit more info of Setsuna in this episode. While she may be an idol, she is working hard to maintain the image Also the nice bonding session in the Karaoke box and some nods to WA1 were appreciated.






Hehehe Touma is annoyed in this. the VN one she looks confused (but she still got annoyed at Haruki). But the scene is still memorable. See it here:

Looks like this will be a pretty nice show. The first two episodes pushed the actual story and the visuals are great.
Even the uniforms are nice

Agreed on all counts! Non Non Biyori is another surprisingly good one for me but White Album 2 is the top for me and Galilei Donna also looks great.

More of a window hanger ...

I must say, this one of the few animes that I've seen where the main character is not an indecisive pansy. I really like how he puts his mind to the task and completes in the best manner he can.

However, the pacing is a bit of an issue for me - like when the MC sees Ogiso working... I know he explains it later, but the transitions between certain scenes is not as good as it should be. However, I really all of the characters and how well-written they are. They all seem have their motivations.

I thought about trying out Non Non Biyori, but I'm just too stacked up with other things to watch so it sadly never got a shot.

Ehhhh particulars.

Watch the first episode and you'll make room, I'm sure!

I wonder which route the show will follow? Setsuna route or Touma route. Which do you guys think?

Touma definitely. Even the director is a Touma fan.

That's the way the first episode seemed to be running. Bummer though, I think I like Setsuna better. Touma looks like a tsundere in the making. BUT, I haven't played the game, so either way I'm excited to see how it goes.

I love listening to piano music. Not going to choose a girl because we don't know anything about Touma. Could be sweet chocolate under that hardened shell.

I thought WN1 certainly had it's flaws. Having two different directors gave the back half of the show a different (and arguably better) feel. I think what I'm going to miss most is the fact they were college age characters meant they could depict adult relationships.
I generally feel the high school romance genre lacks the ability to be realistic because of self imposed censorship by the producers and TV networks.

All that being said I am pretty happy with WN2. The only thing I can't figure out is how it could possible be set 10 years later. Looks more like 20 to me.
