Just marathoned WA2 last night, and the double whammy from finishing a show and ending on a downer is starting to sink in.

We know how Kazusa gradually fell for Haruki, but when did Haruki start having romantic feelings for Kazusa? It seemed like he was friendzoning her pretty hard here.
>>
Kazusa a shit.

He loved her pretty much from the start but was basically a coward.

OTOH, he thought she wasn't interested in him, so he might've just said "friends" to avoid weirding her out.

But he was also half-asleep and talking more freely than usual at the time, so you'd think he was saying what he really thought.

From the beginning. He wrote Todokanai Koi about Kazusa so at least as long as he had that notebook which was like freshman year or something. The irony lies in the fact that ultimately Setsuna is the one who actually sings it.

He barely knew anything about her for a long time though, except that she was always grumpy and sleepy. I guess I can see being intrigued by a pretty, prickly girl living her life incorrectly, though.

>>139501218
Ah, I was wondering if he wrote that song with her in mind, but forgot to ask.

>so at least as long as he had that notebook which was like freshman year or something
Didn't he only meet her in third year, when she got demoted into his class?
>>
Is it true that we never got a full version of Setsuna singing White Album to Kazusa's piano from the end of ep 1? I really liked that version.
>>
...Wait a minute. They never announced who won the Miss Toujou election that year!

(But obviously it'd be Setsuna. The real question is if Kazusa unseated Drillbitch from second place with her mad instrument skillz.)

He was never in love with Setsuna though. She knew that and still acted which is why there was so much pain in the first place.

If Setsuna had just given up she would have saved herself a lifetime of pain and simultaneously allowed true love to blossom. It's not an overstatement to say that Setsuna ruined everything.

Was there ever chance of threesome end, if they had played their cards right?

>>
>>139516489
He pity-fucks her?
>>
>>139517055
Well, you see
It's going to be a long time before they start getting intimate with each other, and even then it's only after Haruki is convinced he'll never see Kazusa again.

Then after spending years together and being engaged Haruki still leaves Setsuna the moment Kazusa returns.

I'm not sure what the moral of the story is supposed to be. True love always finds a way I guess? Never lie to yourself when it comes to love?

I don't know. I just feel like this entire series could have been avoided if Haruki had just confessed to Kazusa at the start.

I don't think so. None of them really intended to cause pain to the others, they all wanted things to be pretty good for everyone but went about it in completely wrong ways.
>>
>>139518624
The road to hell is paved on good intentions.
>>
>>139518624
I don't think there's any way to argue that Setsuna wasn't wrong.
She knew that Haruki and Kazusa loved each other and specifically tried to prevent them from figuring that out and then proceeded to flaunt her relationship and to make things worse tried to guilt trip them both when they finally embraced each other.

She was dealt a losing hand from the very start but she just had to try and bring everyone else down with her.

The only saving grace is that Setsuna acknowledged how wrong she was and never resisted her retribution.
>>
>>139517679
Except Setsuna is enabling his behavior. She knew that if both of them got together she would be frozen out and took action to confess to him to keep the 3 of together. I am not convinced that she likes him that much. Girl is just dumb, why would she even think that it is a good idea?

People probably liked it as it stood out from other VNs in terms of depth, but not enough to reconcile themselves with the ending, which was a zero sum. Also this >>139517679 probably didn't sit well with people.

According to >>99357534
these all the hints that Kazusa is the true ending of the WA2 as a whole, althought it's pretty clear if you play the game:
WA1 subtitle is: Tsuzurareru Fuyu no Omoide( feelings of winter put together)
Kazusa's theme in WA2 is After All-Tsuzurareru no Omoide-(after all, feelings put together)
the title of the PS3 and PSP versions: "White Album2-Shiawase no Mukogawa" The other side of happiness)
When asked about the subtitle, Maruto answered:
"In love, when you make someone happy, there will often be also people who will not be happy as a result"
The theme Happiness (shiawase) and the opposite side of happiness (shiawase no mukogawa) is the theme of the game."
This theme is only followed in Kazusa's route, since Haruki and kazusa sacrifice other people's happines in exchange for their own happiness.
the last scene in Kazusa's coda has Powder Snow, WA1 true ending song.
the credits song in Kazusa's coda is "Closing" the song is about Kazusa's and haruki's feeling finally being resolved, that ending credits is the only one with the White Album2 and Coda logos.

Today, is the crossroad in my...in the life of the 3 of us.
because the decision I'll make today will involve a lot of the people around me.
"you're the one who vanished from my reach!"
"you're the one who went somewhere I could never reach!"
"what's wrong with me loving a good for nothing!"

Because, ever since that time...
In the day my fate started rolling was winter, in that day it was snowing, it's been always continued snowing...

Haruki: ugh...
My chest hurts
harsher than the coldness of winter covering my whole body, harsher than the coldness of the snow, something more bitter and painful surges like a stream.
I won't run away anymore.
I have no option but to choose one among the two of them
Haruki: ugh... hnghh...
I know what's right, what's precious, and what's happy
Even so, I doubt.
Because this is my ultimate decision.
Kazusa won't decide, so I will do it.
Just for this once time, I'll obey my feelings, I'll choose my most precious person in the world.
I won't regret it even if it's a mistake.
Haruki: ugh~~!
this will be my final, one that I won't be able to return from, ultimate decision
>>
>>139500090

Haruki: "Kazusa, you're a horrible woman, your personality is bad, your attitude is bad, and you're a coward.
Your only good point is your piano"
Kazusa: "What... Harukiii..."
She instantly looks down, and her voice shakes.
Haruki: "You look good on the exterior, but you're rotten on the inside, no matter how talented you are, you're a failure as a member of society."
Kazusa: "Stop.... stop..."
The strong front she had until now disappears, and she can't hide her shock and tears.
Haruki: "You're the lowest, do you know how much suffering you've caused me?"
Kazusa: "Please... Don't be that mean... Even I know what you're saying it's true"
Tears accumulate in her eyes, and she looks at me like an abandoned puppy.
Haruki: "It's natural for someone with your talent to rest on your laurels, and to not adapt to society, and to fail as a person."
She really is so weak...
Haruki: "Kazusa, you're an absolute failure."
Kazusa: "Stop..."
Haruki: "If Youko-san and I are gone, how are you gonna live?"
Kazusa: "How should I know? I wouldn't even think of that possibility!"
Haruki: "You are this useless, helpless and weak."
Kazusa: "Harukiiii! Youuu..!"
Haruki: "So I have to choice but to take matters into my own hands"
Kazusa:"..........Eh?"
If she's like that, there's no way I can leave her.
Haruki: "I, you know... that terrible person that you are... I love her, more than anyone in the world"
kazusa:"....... Eh, eh-?"
Haruki: "If you don't live happily, I can't stand that."
Kazusa"......Haru....ki?"
No, I want to do it, I want to reach out my hand to her
Haruki: "So you can be happy, no, so you can keep on living, I'll say it."
Haruki. "I'll stay at your side... even If I have to throw everything away"

Jesus, that hurt to read. It's like kicking a puppy.

Can't wait for the complete game TL.

>>139517679
Couldn't the player choose to not leave Setsuna and go 100% down her route since it's a VN?
>>
>>139571817
Well yeah but the player could also choose to exit the game any time and consider it an ending to the game. There is however a true ending in the sense that it's one that has all the clear marking of being the author's intended destination for the story. Kazusa's route was the one the story was built around, everything else was simply things being branched off for the sake of creating a broader experience that encourages multiple playthroughs.
>>
>>139571817
There is a Setsuna True End that's kinda like a Good End. I don't think there's a corresponding Kazusa Good End that throws Setsuna a bone though. Maybe the Twinkle Snow alternate-timeline omake, from what I hear.

>>139574825
I've heard that in Setsuna's route, Kazusa manages to give up on Haruki, and even stays in their new life. But how can you be sure she isn't just putting on a front for their sake, like before? She's good at that.

Then again, she left in the first place because she had reached her limit, so I doubt she could keep it up a second time if it weren't real.

Haruki's feelings are left up in the air as well since Setsuna essentially takes over the role as the protagonist in her coda route.

Haruki: "What are you doing? do you know what time is it?"
Kazusa: "... what happened to your face?"
Haruki: "Answer my question first, I was the first to make one."
Kasuza: "...I was waiting for you in your room, and because you were pretty late in coming back, and your phone was turned off..."
Haruki: "Ah, I turned it off, sorry"
Kazusa: "I decided to wait outside for a bit, then walked to the station to try to meet you, and thought that maybe I missed you on the way, and hurried back.
I couldn't sleep since you weren't coming back, so I decided to wait awake, and repeated the first step.
I think I repeated the whole process like 5 times?"

Isn't Setsuna the real winner though? With Kazusa out of the way it's only a matter of time until she manages to seduce Haruki.

>>139588936
Really? I was sure they'd get at least one in at the end. I guess all the fucking ended up in the cheating route.
>>
>>139500090
it's love at first sight for both of them but because of who they are their feelings developed very slowly. you can see some chemistry going between the two of them. Without Setsuna, they may end up together as love birds or just move on with their lives, but point is they will have that warm first love memories.

Thanks to Setsuna and the events that she set off, all three of them suffered for years. Then they found solace, somewhat.
>>
>>139592793
Well his reasoning was a bit questionable.

For Setsuna it was because he didn't have a reason to say no to her.
For Kazusa it's because he loved her more than anything in the world.

Haruki is sipmly too polite, too courteous, too willing to go with the flow. One of the themes of the story is reflected in Haruki's recognition of this flaw and his eventual overcoming of it in the closing chapter.
>>
>>139500090
>It seemed like he was friendzoning her pretty hard here.
When did Kazusa realize he loved her back?

I'm pretty sure that she got the heads up once she heard the song he wrote.
>>
>>139594993
I hear she thought it was for Setsuna though.
>>
>>139595062
I don't know. It would really be quite odd for Haruki to write a song about Setsuna before he even met her.
>>
>>139593158
Nope, everything in cheating route. And it still end with kazusa leaving and setsuna back with haruki, no marriage (yet) though

Setsuna didn't want that. She knew that if Haruki and Kazusa ever became close she would feel left out and wouldn't want to be in the group. So she confessed to Haruki before Kazusa did and in doing so caused everyone in the group years of pain and suffering because she was too selfish to just be happy for the two of them.

What's the post limit?

Haruki: I'll stay at your side no matter what. Even if I have to abandon everything else.
Kazusa:... you're not being serious
Haruki: ....
Kazusa: don't tease me like that
Kazusa: even though I know you're lying, I still believe it a little, and it makes me sad
Haruki: Do you hate the idea of being with me sad? Do you dislike the idea of being with me that much?
kazusa: Idiot! don't misunderstand things on purpose! I hate when you do that!
haruki: sorry
Kazusa: it's like waking up from a dream, and getting sad because of something you can never have
haruki: Kazusa...
Kazusa: don't talk about impossible dreams, there's a limit to cruelty
Haruki: unfortunately, you're off the mark
Kazusa: Eh?
Haruki: I'm not lying, and I'm not teasing you either
Haruki: I'll really stay with you no matter what from now on, no matter where you go. Even if that place is Vienna
Kazusa: !?
Haruki: The pianist Kazusa Touma, or just the regular Japanese Kazusa Touma, I don't care which one.
Haruki: I'll support you from now on, I'll live for your sake from now on
Kazusa: haruki... you... are you........ insane?

We both freeze where we stand, but not from the winter air surrounding us, and not from happiness either, but from the pressure, the despair and the depression weighing us down

Kazusa: if you grant my wish, you'll have to leave someone else's dream behind...
Haruki: I'm fine even if I have to leave Japan, leaving overseas might be harsh at first, but I have confidence I'll manage to get a job
Kazusa: I don't mean that...!
Haruki: Don't worry about my family, they never cared much about me in the first place
Kazusa: I don't mean that, you're pretending to misunderstand thing again!
haruki: yeah...
Kazusa: What about... Setsuna?
haruki: ....

This. It's easy to insult her for being selfish, but that is exactly the reason why I like her: she fought for her love, and she fought hard , until the bitter end.
She's an admirable character in how she doesn't let anything stand in the way of her dreams and happiness, and even when the obstacle proved to be too great for her, she didn't give up.

I think I feel *less* alive, since it's made me question my life with a bleak eye, and not find clear answers on what joy I can look forward to, nor how I should fix that. Also, like Haruki said, how I would even live if/when my parents die. Normally this is where I would appreciate them more, but my mom's also in a naggy mood and cancelling it out. Ironically I'm only forgetting my sadness when I'm angry. I'm not sure which feeling is worse.

So, why is it that Kazusa and Haruki were so fiercely in love in with each other?

They seem like very different kinds of people. Haruki and Setsuna on paper seemed like they would have made the better couple but for some reason the connection they had just couldn't even compare.

Is it possible that the author believed that strong relationships require people who meet very specific thresholds of similarities and differences?

At the age Haruki was at the end of the story he should have been fully matured, so any hormonal influenced feelings should have been under control. Even then, his feelings for Kazusa and her feelings for him returned stronger than ever before.

Perhaps I'm over analyzing it but it's really all quite remarkable and it's interesting to think about.
>>
Wow this is still alive?

Haruki: I'll save the one most important person in the world to me, that's why I decided.
Kazusa: i-idiot!
Haruki: right now, that probably right
Kazusa: *crying sounds* that's... don't do it... haruki...
haruki: Kazusa...
Kazusa: if you say more, I won't ever be able to live without you...
Haruki: uh... if you say that, it only makes me want to protect you harder...
Kazusa: *crying* so... sorry
haruki: listen, Kazusa, this is something only I decided, if you don't agree and it doesn't make you happy, if you're happier not taking my hand, then... I'll give up.
I only want your happiness...
but right now, I'm only causing you pain, I'm sorry.
but, you'll have to decide.
kazusa: me..?
haruki: probably, for both you and me, whatever the future has for us, we'll only find regret.
So at least, let's decide our own future, let's regret our own decision, if we're betraying someone dear, let's always carry that weight.
Kazusa: be-betray?
Haruki: I've already betrayed. Now you're the only one left.
Kazusa: ....
haruki: if this decision will make your life harsher, of if it'll make it a little happier...
i want you to consider it.
If you give me a positive answer, I'll do everything in my power to open up that path.
Even if I have to make a pact with the devil.

Haruki gets of the train, and when he's leaving the station, he finds Kazusa standing there.
Kazusa:.........yo
Haruki: ah...
Kazusa: it's been a week, how are you doing?
Haruki: the same to you...
Kazusa: me? or course I'm not doing well, because of that horrible choice you gave me, I thought I'd get sick and end up in the hospital
Haruki: that's...
Kazusa: what's with that face? don't tell me you already regreted what you said to me?
Haruki: I wouldn't...
Kazusa: if you regreted, that'd be only natural...
Kazusa: I thought pretty hard about that choice, it'd be weird if I didn't...
Haruki: and your answer is...?
KAzusa: ....
Haruki: shouldn't you give me an answer already? are you going to choose me, or are you going to dump me?
Kazusa: ... I went to the airport today...
haruki: eh?
Kazusa: I wasn't planning to run away and return to Vienna, I didn't even buy a ticket.
Haruki: then, why?
Kazusa: I just wanted to remember.
Haruki: remember what?
Kazusa: the sadness I felt when I left you 5 years ago, the pain that pierced my heart..
Kazusa: and I compared it, to the pain my decision would cause
Haruki: and then...?
Kazusa: don't you want to ask why was i waiting for you here?
Haruki: that's...
Kazusa: you know why, that I know what day is today, that there's a place you must definitely go today.
Haruki: ...
>>
Kazusa: Haruki... you're going to Setsuna's birthday party, am i wrong?
Kazusa: you'll meet with Setsuna, and won't say anything about me, you'll give her a present, eat with her, and kiss her when you're alone, right?
Haruki: Kazusa...
Kazusa: and then you'll regret your decision, you'll think it's okay to leave me behind, that you're fine with Setsuna.
Haruki: I wouldn't...
Kazusa: I know how you are, you'll doubt again
Kazusa: ...but I'll put an end to that.
haruki: eh?
Kazusa: I hurried from the airport, by car, by taxi, and even running here to meet you, and I barely made it.
Kazusa: i came here to stop you.
Haruki: Kazusa...?
Kazusa: don't meet Setsuna anymore... Haruki... betray Setsuna... and choose me. Please... stay always by side...

It irritates me that she calls it betreyal. Kazusa and Haruki have every right to love each other. Setsuna took it upon herself to complicate things. She knew that all of this would happen and she did it anyways. She brought this on herself.

No betrayal is occurring. Only justice.

>>139627471
It's destiny, I ain't gotta explain shit.

But to take a crass stab at it, I'd say Haruki was first intrigued by her juxtaposition of beauty and self-neglect, and grew emotionally attached as he tried "fixing" her and gradually saw more sides of her. Meanwhile, Kazusa was both vexed and touched by Haruki's genuinely helpful nature and persistence in spite of her crabbiness, which nobody else put up with. tl;dr, their resistances only made each other's penises harder. Don't try this at home, kids.

To be continued, maybe.

It doesn't look like people know this, but the novelization of WA2 has Haruki choosing Kazusa.
And actually it's pretty great, it starts following Setsuna's route, then it switches to Kazusa normal and finally ends with Kazusa true.
There's a scene at the end that shows Setsuna getting married to Haruki, and Kazusa is there, and everyone is happy(like in her true end), but it ends up being Setsuna's dream, it's awesome, like the author telling you how impossible Setsuna's route in the game is.
If they ever make more WA2 anime, they should follow the novels script.

The Setsuna clone will win this time. I can feel it. I'm also surprised Megumi is so popular while Setsuna is by far less popular than Kazusa even though their roles are so similar.
>>
>>139637754
Because setsuna's personality is 1000 times more interesting than her opponent. I don't even know what kazusa fags see in their beloved waifu.

>>139638033
Maybe, I haven't checked the reception for other sites. Saekano's Setsuna clone being so popular should be surprising though.
>>
Kinda off-topic but Maruto really loves his meta-references. Saekano was pretty much his playground. It was pretty nice to be able to pick up on all the parallels he draws with WA2. In fact, it's was so meta that Saekano references itself (especially so if you read the manga spinoffs).
>>
>>139638257
Did Megumi play White Album 2? I think the VN itself exists in Saekano's universe because Tomoya references it several times.

Utaha's novel you mean? I don't think the VN they created had anything to do with WA2.
Off the top of my head:
- Koisuru Metronome (Utaha's novel) was pretty much WA2, they even got Setsuna and Haruki's seiyuus to voice a short clip in the Anime.
- Don't know if this was in the Anime or one of the spinoffs, but Utaha wanted to write a new novel that was more "highschool harem"-esque. Literally Maruto himself.

And I'm pretty sure there's a couple more, but I don't really remember much. I should really re-read the series.

but in terms of narrative, setsuna's true end is pretty optimistic and out of place
>>
>>139640251
I doubt so, it definitely isn't limited to just Utaha. Well, who knows. I haven't followed his antics that closely.

Another interesting note about Saekano was that Maruto said he needed to approach it more carefully, since LNs have only one "ending", unlike VNs. Granted, it's not like WA2 had "choices" per se, but it'll definitely be pretty interesting to see how he handles Saekano.

Maybe that's why he wrote the spinoffs for Eriri and Utaha?
>>
>>139641204
so megumi is pretty much the winner?
>>
>>139641573
Probably. It'll definitely will not be a simple, clear cut "win", though. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if it ends up with a WA2 style "no one wins, everyone loses" situation.

I can't tell if the author hates Setsuna or not.

I've been wanting to translate the Kazusa one since forever, but it's impossible to find the raw, only the chinese scanlation was uploaded.
The Setsuna one looks okay too, but it takes place after her true ending, maybe people won't get some dialogues and it can be spoilerish.

Maruto also went after Setsunafags in the afterword by confirming that Haruki and Kazusa are quite happy as a couple in Kazusa's true end and weren't depressed about what they had to do in order to be together.

Oh, come on! Now that just makes the two sound like assholes, and contradicts some of the specifics I've seen in ending summaries.

The TL is being done at BT is machine TL-tier. It really doesn't do this series (and Maruto's writing) enough justice.

I would definitely recommend either picking up Japanese (at the rate it's being TL'd, you'll most likely pick up the language faster). The patch just ruins the experience imo.

If you want to spoil yourself, you should definitely check out mdz's summaries. He's done a really good job of capturing the series' premise. Even if you've only watched the show, it's still a worthwhile read.

Satelight did a really great job with the adaption. There were a lot of little, minor actions that carried a lot of meaning. WA2 was all about character relationships, it's a shame it'll never be decently TL'd.

>If I got good enough to read the raw with less info/flavor loss than reading their TL, would that also make me capable of a decent translation?
Understanding is one thing, translating is another. There are a lot of aspects that can't be as easily translated (writing styles, tone etc). It would honestly be easier if you read it in JP.

For the BT project, it was originally a bigger pile of shit and was literally machine-TL everywhere. I haven't kept up with it but it seems they have an actual "team" now; but based on their guidelines and a couple of the scripts, it's still pretty shitty imo. There's a lot of inconsistencies. If you want a decent TL, the whole project needs to be completely re-done.

Check DJT, it should cover pretty much everything. You can definitely pick up the language by yourself eventually but I personally think the fastest way is to expose yourself to more media (in addition to the basics of course). Anki cards do help but nothing can beat actual material. Read more, watch more, listen more. You'll see that it's easier to "understand" Japanese rather than trying to translate it in your head.

WA2 really struck a note with me. I don't have much to compare it to but as it stands I think it's a brillaint romance series that really delivered the serious drama, character development, and pure expression of love I wanted out of a romance series.

Are there any other series out there that live up to or surpass WA2?
>>
Daily reminder that white album 2 doesn't use timetravel,science fiction stuff,heroine that has amnesia or accident and other stuff as plot.
>>
>>139684664
It's not as intense or tragic as WA2, but I usually like recommending Kanojo Ni Naru Hi for romance, since it's short and sweet as fuck. (Originally 5 chapters, then got a continuation.) I feel like each drama source it introduces is done justice without feeling rushed or dragged-out.

Will see if I can think of anything heavier.

WA2 sprites look so silly at times, they ruin serious scenes, like this one:

It's so full of quality they really should remake the game with actually good art at some point.

It was said that WA2 was pretty rushed, but Maruto stepped in to save it (or something along those lines).

No, the main artist didn't make the deadline, and they had to rush the shit out of it and hire other artist.

Dang, that's such a shame.

M-Maybe if they ever do a remake, they'll want another anime season to market it, too. God, I feel like Setsuna with her forlorn hypotheticals.

Isn't it the other way around? Why would a woman who follows her husband be the evil woman?

>>139696023
Io is so fucking shit. She planned her whole life around getting Haruki and Setsuna together without ever considering Haruki's feelings. And then she threw a massive fit in Coda Kazusa route because that didn't work out.

Takeya is also a shitty best friend.

Leaf art in general is pretty bad, I don't know why they can't put out a good product when they make pretty popular games.

Yes and?

Tight deadlines maybe?

what happened to that other male friend with the sick sidebuns
>>
>>139696265
I dunno, going by the anime, Takeya tried to help HaruKazu happen while things were still up in the air, but believed you should stay committed once you made a choice. That's a position I can respect. I think Kazusa had the same belief, which is why she kept steering Haruki to give Setsuna his full attention, tried (but failed) to distance herself gracefully, and felt guilty about finally cracking under the heartache.

The courage to dump your fiancée for an old flame!

I can't think of any two characters that love each other more than Haruki and Kazusa. They're really quite inspiring.

It reminds me a bit of Tsukihime's layout, where the magnetism between Shiki and Arc is so strong that to do Ciel's route, you have to piss Arc off at every turn and make it clear she's forcing you to help her at gunpoint. And even then, Shiki still kinda likes her when he's forced to choose, and she hijacks Ciel's Good End. And the Far Side routes have to avoid their fateful meeting entirely for the other girls to stand a chance.

Yea, while Kazusa was gone, he had been fucking the shit out of Setsuna. This asshole doesn't deserve Kazusa.
