    Captivating, yet...brief. It certainly does not fail to impress or disdain at times, which is really for the best.
    To date, I don't think I've watched a series that has pulled me in as much with the first episode as White Album (W.A.) did. I greatly enjoy that such a title was so wonderfully produced, and I stand stunned at the deep context that can be found in between the so-called "love-polygon" which it seems to convey. Deep down, every person has a weakness, and Touya Fuji's was never truly realizing just ...

    White Album - One to kill time with
    My first (accidental) foray into harem anime, White Album kept me watching until the 26th episode, but I'm still not entirely sure why.

    The plot at first seems like it might be complex but ultimately is about a string of relationships that the main character Touya Fuji has with a variety of women in his life whom he calls his 'goddesses'. The backdrop being that his childhood sweetheart is an ...

    Interesting but flawed
    This is a very strange harem anime.

    It´s very serious, the art style is awesome and the soundtrack is incredible.

    The main character tough is absolutely enerving and the "main girl" Yuki is boring and lifeless.

    The pace is slow and the resolutions are not convincing.

    Watch only if you´re really in the mood of something slow and vague.

    Definitely Not For Casuals
    Simply put, this show was all over the place. So if you are not a hardcore drama/romance fan, you will NOT enjoy this. That being said, I am and I found this to be average at best. Despite that, I can say I still "enjoyed", but it was not easy

    White Album is a love polygon romance genre, and a harem at that. He refers to each women he encounters as a "goddess". Why he calls them that and why ...

    It had potential and that's about it...
    This show had potential leaking out of every pore on each character's dead-fish-eyed face. Alas, it was slow and painful for me. I usually like sentimental stories about dealing with life, but this just made me sad...sad and bored. I'd rather hit up some super ridiculous anime or a serious anime that has some kind of fighting going on. This was just too slow for me all around. Add in the super ...

    This Just Was Hard To Like
    If there was a phrase that would define this series, it would be "pointlessly slow". I get series that take a long time to develop an interesting plot or world, but this series didn't need that. It was just a normal, generic romance. Also, that brings me to the romance, which was pretty lame. The main male character is a really annoying guy, who has a relationship with several people at the same ...

    Each corse lay flat, lifeless and flat,
    Yet another show featuring an uninteresting guy dealing with women who are attracted to him for some unfathomable reason. Usually this is done as comedy but here the laughs are unintentional and the main character veers from attempting to seem unemotional to being a creep. The female characters don't fare much better and after being given short backgrounds are brought out on occasion to spout ...

    Good, But I Wouldn't Say Great
    I found the animation style nice to view, but the story went slowly along, offering only a brief glance at the surface of some of the lightest and more seedy aspects of characters in the world of "pop-idol" music industry that might be found.

    The story does lead one along well, making one wonder how these characters and their stories really fit together to make a cohesive web of plotline to ...

  • If you're a masochist, watch WA
    This anime made me depressed most of the time while I watched it. It got its hooks into me and I couldn't stop until I finished it. I was really hoping for relief from the suffering but there was very, very little. Even though I hated watching White Album I still think it is a good anime. I don't really know what else to say without giving things away but that's the gist of it for me.

  • Not a normal cup of tea!
    The music and artwork are wonderful and kept me interested though the series. The main male and female characters pissed me off nearly every episode for sure. On was week and unable to control his own desires. The other was weak and unable to stand up and say or do what she really wanted. The story built around all the characters ties in quite nicely and made the unnerving reality of the main ...
