  • A good and thought-provoking series
    This was a series that grabbed and held my attention throughout. It's the first harem type series I have watched, so I can't really compare it to others. That said, I liked the characters and the underlying story and development. Reading the other reviews, I can relate to others' frustrations with Touya (the male lead), but in the end I think I understood and appreciated him better, and I get why ...

  • Perfect imperfection
    Things and or people are not always what they seem is one way to state or summarize what this series was. I unfortunately laughed, cried, got mad, and sad for most this is not a series they will enjoy but for those that can it is something that can be related to maybe not on this kind of scale however big or small.Because these are not your shoes that are walking in this story just remember that ...

    It was a great show overall, made me tear up on some parts and was great
    The main character n his "main girl" Fuji Touya n Yuki Morikawa I kinda don't even consider his main girl cuz she was always gone. But over the course of the series u realize he does everything to make each girl he sees as "goddesses" to try to replace yuki and as a result, hurt everyone in the process in this cheatin love hexagon. He smashes yuki manager several times n either kiss or smashes da ...

  • 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, it is hard to explain.
    So if you are looking for a lovey dovey romance, this isn't exactly it.
    I am not much into Harem but this was interesting if you like twisted romance and slice of life stuff.

    Talk about a man whore, keep it in your pants will ya?
    A bunch of girls fall for a guy who is an average Jo. It doesn't make a ton of sense but it just happens. At least the music was good. I felt I should watch this because it came out in 1986 which is my year ^_^ , but I only finished it because of my OCD to finish things, not because I actually liked it. The second white album at least had a clear storyline where this was all over the place. It is ...

    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 ...

  • Better than I was led to expect
    I saw that White Album 2 was highly regarded, so I figured I'd start with the original first. This, despite the warnings that it wasn't as good as WA2. I haven't watched WA2 yet, so obviously I am not trying to compare them.

    The great thing about the characters is that they are not thorough cliches. They all have flaws, and many show glimpses of interesting back-story. But with so many ...

  • Great show for any older viewers
    The best word that I can use to sum up this show is bittersweet.

    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 ...
