It was followed by an anime adaptation produced by Seven Arcs, which began broadcast in Japan on January 3, 2009.
White Album’s male protagonist. Fujii Touya is a twenty year-old university student in his second year attending the Yuunagi University (悠凪大学). He has a timid, yet vulgar personality, and is often unorganized. He often laments the amount of time he has to spend with Morikawa Yuki (voiced by: Hirano Aya – profile HERE), whom he is romantically attracted to.
Yuki, White Album’s main heroine, is an idol singer rising in popularity, and is affiliated with the Ogata Productions. She has a warm and kindhearted personality, and is in her second year attending university with Touya, with whom she attended high school together. Ogata Rina (voiced by: Mizuki Nana – profile HERE), another heroine, is a popular idol singer under the same management agency as Yuki. Rina is elegant and intelligent, and maintains a mutual friendship with Yuki. She is often occupied with work, and becomes attracted to Touya to compensate her loneliness.
