Nana Komatsu is on her way to Tokyo; now she can finally be with her boyfriend after a year of dating long-distance! On the train there, Nana Komatsu meets Nana Osaki – a girl who shares her name but seems to be everything Nana Komatsu is not; cool, street-wise, and a punk rocker. The two hit it off and spend the entire journey getting to know each other, but when they get to Tokyo, circumstance separates them seemingly forever. However, fate is not finished with these two. Whilst hunting for a place to live the two Nanas again cross paths. They decide to share a flat and become best friends in no time. Nana K. must learn to be independent and mature, while Nana O. works on becoming famous with her band; but together, they will learn about love and loss, and the growth that comes with it.
This show and Nana share alot in common. Both are focused around musicians and their relationships. Nana is a good deal longer and has more progression over time, but both shows have numerous relationships.
Nana is more so focused on the friendship and everyday lives of the two female leads than the romances they are in. Because White Album is shorter and focuses on only one guy, for the most part, it is very much centered around love triangles.
Also, both shows take a semi-realistic approach to romance. Its always somewhat akward, but never goofy or echhi style harem.
If you loved the love triangle that non-rocker Nana got in, you will looooove White Album. Its like Nana squared. However, if you really got attached to the banter between the two Nanas and thought the romance was only ok, you'll want to avoid White Album.
If you like White Ablbumn you'll love Nana. They are both based around students involved in the music industry. Nana has love triangles and drama that will draw you in instantly.
both series focus on girls that have a music career and on their relationship.Nana is abit longer and focuses on a friendship between two girls that share the same name while White Album is way shorter than Nana, it is centered on only one guy and focuses mostly on love triangle aspects but both series have a deep romance aspect.My guess is that if you liked Nana you will also like White Album (and vice versa).
When Makoto saw Kotonoha on the train one day, he fell in love at first sight. Luckily, his classmate Sekai’s nosy personality ensures him an introduction to his crush, and soon the two begin to date. However, Kotonoha isn’t the only one with eyes for Makoto - a fact that any horny teenager would be delighted with. With endless temptations, lies and heartbreak at every turn, Makoto and Kotonoha’s relationship will soon be put to the ultimate test...
These 2 are very similar. In addition to hvaing the exact same characters, they also have similar stories and situations. One girl tries to get a guy and another girl together, although girl #1 likes the guy too.
Both series aren't afraid to bring up sex and mature themes either.
Both animes deal with same types of genres (romance, lots drama, heavy subjects like sex). If you "hated" or "liked" School days you'll definitely feel the same with White Album. Trust me... you'll feel the same.
Shinichiro Nakagami is an everyday high school student, with the exception of having his beautiful and athletic childhood friend Hiromi Yuasa living in his household after the death of her parents. Unfortunately, their relationship is cold at best - Shinichiro can tell that she is suffering, but she acts coldly and distant from her foster family and so he is unable to help ease her sadness. His family is also forcing him to practice a traditional Japanese dance that does not interest him, adding to his frustration. On top of that, he is cursed to misfortune by another girl in school, the eccentric Noe Isurugi. Shinichiro juggles all of these problems on a day-to-day basis as he learns about love and the sadness of those around him.
These two shows share a very similar visual style and when you boil the plots down to their core, they are very similar.
However, thats not why i'd recommend them. What I really like is that both shows have a male lead with multiple possible relationships, but there is never one that feels totally impossible.
White Album's number of possible suitors is a bit overboard (5 at my last count), all of them seem very possible. Depending on the episode, you may find yourself rooting for someone completely different.
That's what makes me recommend it. As the main character's emotions flip flop back and forth, so do mine. That aspect really grabbed me and hooked me for both shows, and thats why'd i'd recommend them.
The relationship between thoes two films are not totaly clear, but i beleve that many will see ti like me. The feeling is in many sencies quite close. They are both intime relation dramas between people that really loves each other, and shuld just let thiers harts come loose... Easy sad but far from easy...
Both are good animated, but True Tears loocks just amazing. The animators here has really played with strong pastells and made a truly beautifull, but still realistic world. White Abum on the other han has a more realistic look - probably more sutible for that type almost melodrama.
Yano Motoharu is the most popular guy in class, the school’s basketball ace, and highly charismatic to boot! No wonder Nanami Takahashi can’t resist falling in love with him. When Yano returns Nana’s feelings, things seem too good to be true and the two begin a relationship; but Yano has a contradictory personality which confuses Nana most of the time. On top of that, tragic events in Yano’s past won’t stop haunting their relationship. Unable to halt their passionate feelings, are Yano and Nana heading for disaster or can they save each other from irreparable hurt?
They Both Deal with Relationships and the Problems that Couple Deal with, I have to say there arn't many Romances that dwell on the Subject, the Characters are Different Although I do admit, Ones of coarse about Highschool Students and the others about College Students but if you enjoyed Either one, You Should Enjoy the Other
