Note:                                 !Note!

This book is a fanwork of White Album 2. There may be some OOC moments, but please try to forgive the silliness in the name of humor as you read.

Foreword:                        I’ve finally managed to put out a book! WA2 has such a fully-realized story that it’s kind of difficult to move the characters around, but I decided to go the comedic route. There are probably some points where my lack of experience shows through, but I hope you enjoy it…

I wasn’t able to draw much of Kazusa, even though I adore her, so I’m hoping to make up for that with the next one.

 

Now for some rambling…

Having followed from the PC games, I was both very excited and honestly a little scared about the anime adaptation. However, right from the first episode the anime developed at a pace that sent those fears flying, and while there are some parts I’m not totally satisfied with, on the whole I think it’s a great anime that should be enjoyable for both fans of the original game and anime fans!

As I write now, I haven’t been able to watch all the way to the end, but having seen what happened in episode 11, I expect I won’t be able to put down my tissue box for the remainder of the show. My hopes are high!

I have one thing to say:

To all of the staff, you’ve done amazing work! Thank you for making an anime that’s so filled with love!

I want to see an anime for CC and onward as well, so I’m ready for a marathon!

Haruki:                              …Morning…

Haruki:                              …Hm?

4.3

FX:                                      Twitch

Haruki:                              Huh?! Is that my hand?

4.4

Haruki:                              Whoa, whoa… This has to be a dream…

4.5

Narration:                        It’s not a dream!

                                           I’ve shrunk!

5.1

Takeya:                             What the hell, man! Look how cute you are!

Haruki:                              I just woke up like this.

5.2

Takeya:                             I won’t be able to take any of your lectures seriously with you looking like that!

Haruki:                              That’s what you’re focusing on?

5.4

Narration:                        My neighbor has turned into some kind of adorable creature.

5.5

Io:                                      Pff!

5.6

Haruki:                              Guys…

5.7

Takeya:                             Look at him, he looks like, uh, you know…

Io:                                      Oh, a korpokkur? Something like that? Yeah, super cute!

5.8

Narration:                        Suddenly I’m visualizing some kind of little fairy in my head.

                                           It’s so cute I’m gonna die.

6.1

Haruki:                              You could worry about my wellbeing a little…

Haruki:                              …? I feel someone looking at me…

6.2

Kazusa:                             ?!

6.3

Haruki:                              Touma?!

6.4

Haruki:                              …Are you okay? Touma…

6.5

Chikashi:                           Hey, Haruki! Can you give me a hand?

Haruki:                              Chikashi!

6.6

Haruki:                              You can skip out on the explosive laughter. I’ve had enough already.

Chikashi:                           What do you mean?

6.7

Chikashi:                           Forget about that. Right now, Ogiso is at the committee meeting.

Haruki:                              You’d better be handling it properly.

6.8

Chikashi:                           You’re curious, right? I bet you could win her over!

Haruki:                              Wait, what do you mean, “Win her over”?

Setsuna:                            Kitahara-kun… right? You’re always furthest to the right when we take tests…

Setsuna:                            Oh, and… you’re in my same year, aren’t you?

7.3

Haruki:                              Yes, we’re in the same year, and I’m aware of you, Ogiso-san.

7.4

Haruki:                              Now, putting my current situation aside, let’s discuss the contest…

Setsuna:                            Kitahara-kun…

7.5

Setsuna:                            You look so adorable right now, I think you could aim for the Grand Prix!

Haruki:                              What are you talking about, Ogiso?

 

Page 8

8.1

Haruki:                              Err, getting back to the topic at hand…

8.2

Haruki:                              This is, at the heart of it, something that can’t be done without the prospective participant’s consent.

Haruki:                              If you don’t want to do it, Ogiso, then…

8.3

Haruki:                              You can choose to abstain… Ogiso?

Setsuna:                            Listen, Kitahara-kun…

8.4

Setsuna:                            I’m endorsing you!

Haruki:                              This conversation isn’t going anywhere coherent.

8.5

Haruki:                              I didn’t realize Ogiso was like this…

Chikashi:                           Maybe go back and try her again later…? I dunno either.

8.6

Haruki:                              Wh-Why don’t we choose another day to decide this…?

8.7

Setsuna:                            If you participate, Kitahara-kun, then I’ll participate, too.

8.8

Haruki:                              Is Ogiso always this much of an oddball…?

Chikashi:                           No idea…

 

Page 9

9.2

Kazusa:                             I dunno what happened, but…

Kazusa:                             he got small somehow…

9.3

Narration:                        Maybe I could pick him up in my hands like this…

                                           And he’d go “Hey, Touma!”

9.4

Narration:                        “Hey, stop that!”

                                           And he’d get all embarrassed and yell at me when I started petting him.

9.5

Narration:                        Why is this so cute.

 

Page 10

10.1

Chikashi:                           Hey, maybe Ogiso was a little weird, but at least it looks like she’s gonna participate, right?

Tomo:                               Let go of me!

10.2

Takeya:                             Wait! Tomo!

10.3

Chikashi:                           …Yanagihara? She just left.

Takeya:                             …Dammit!

10.4

Haruki:                              I told you to give up on her. Remember?

Takeya:                             Tiny Haruki is still Haruki, I see…

10.5

Takeya:                             So, the Light Music Club is down to just the two of us.

Takeya:                             What are we supposed to do with two guitars?

10.6

Haruki:                              …I think we might be through. There’s nothing the two of us could pull off.

10.7

Takeya:                             Look, I’ll go find a super gorgeous girl to sing for us…

Takeya:                             Sorry, I’m getting a call.

10.8

Takeya:                             My goddess is calling. I’ll leave the rest to you, Haruki.

Haruki:                              You’re fine and dandy, then. Great…

 

Page 11

11.1

Takeya:                             More importantly, Haruki…

Takeya:                             Can you play the guitar like that?

11.2

Haruki:                              Oh. Yeah, I guess not.

Takeya:                             Well, you’re in luck, because Takeya here is willing to put in the work for his itty-bitty best friend!

11.3

Takeya:                             Just for you…

Takeya:                             I went and found the perfect instrument.

Haruki:                              Shut up!

11.4

Takeya:                             A mini electric guitar!

Nyeheheh!

Haruki:                              If you had the time to look for this, you should have used it to find other members, instead…

11.5

Takeya:                             Now, I really do have to go meet with my goddess.

Haruki:                              Get back here, Takeya!

11.6

Haruki:                              …Ugh…

11.7

Chikashi:                           Iizuka’s a real piece of work, huh.

Haruki:                              He does have some good qualities, but…

11.8

Haruki:                              …Hang on, how long have you been here, Chikashi?! I thought you’d gone off somewhere…

Chikashi:                           You’re kind of a piece of work, yourself…

 

Page 12

12.1

Chikashi:                           Welp, time for me to head.

Haruki:                              See you.

12.2

Haruki:                              Well, considering I’ve got this guitar…

Haruki:                              I guess I’ll just practice like usual.

12.3

Narration:                        I wonder if they’re here today.

12.5

Haruki:                              …Thanks for always joining me…

12.6

Haruki:                              …Hm? This voice…

12.8

Haruki:                              Hey, piano! Keep going, please!

Narration:                        …Tsk. Some nerve…

 

Page 13

13.1

Haruki:                              That voice… I’m pretty sure it was coming from the roof. All right…

Haruki:                              I’ve got to hurry…

13.2

Haruki:                              Dammit… It’s hard to get up these stairs…

Io:                                      Huh? Haruki?

13.3

Io:                                      What are you doing? You’re covered in sweat.

Haruki:                              Io… Take me up to the roof, if you would, please.

FX:                                      Yoink

13.4

Io:                                      Youuu got it!

FX:                                      Fling

Haruki:                              You must have a pretty twisted definition of “take”!

13.5

Haruki:                              Io… I’ll give her one thing.

Haruki:                              Her control is outstanding… Owww…

13.8

Haruki:                              Will you join the Light Music Club?

 

Page 14

14.1

Narration:                        She turned me down, but I’ll get Ogiso to sing for us, I swear!

FX:                                      Clench

14.2

Haruki:                              Ogiso!

Setsuna:                            Ack?!

FX:                                      Jump

14.3

Narration:                        Activating special skill!

Setsuna:                            Eek!

Narration:                        Attribute: Clumsy Megane Girl!

14.4

Setsuna:                            H-Huh? K-Kitahara-kun?!

Haruki:                              Urk…

14.5

Haruki:                              H-Hey, um… I’m about to do something unfair.

14.6

Haruki:                              I know you already said “no,” after I took advantage of your moment of weakness…

Setsuna:                            Oh, I’ll sing!

14.7

Haruki:                              Huh?

Setsuna:                            You’re so cute, and I love singing. Why not?

Haruki:                              That was easy.

14.8

Haruki:                              After this, we’re going to karaoke together, where you’ll confess something to me, right?

Setsuna:                            You’re getting awfully meta…

 

Page 15

15.1

Narration:                        All right, now for the piano!

                                           I’ll get you to join us, too!

15.2

Haruki:                              The door’s locked, though…

Takeya:                             Hey! Haruki! Watch out!

15.3

Takeya:                             This weirdo and his fixations…

Io:                                      What are you guys doing here? Practicing?

Haruki:                              I want to know who’s playing the piano next door.

15.4

Io:                                      Well, the window’s open, right? All you gotta do is fly in!

FX:                                      Yeet

Haruki:                              Do I look like a ball to you?! Stop throwing me!

15.5

Kazusa:                             Kitahara?!

15.6

Narration:                        What? Touma?!

FX:                                      Grab

15.7

Haruki:                              T-T-T-Touma! You have to play the piano for us!

Kazusa:                             …Sure.

Haruki:                              Huh?

15.8

Narration:                        Touma has joined the party!

 

Page 16

16.1

Takeya:                             All right! Now we’ve got all our club members here!

Haruki:                              Thanks to me.

Takeya:                             First, our super-hot club leader, myself, Takeya Iizuka.

16.2

Takeya:                             Our vocalist, Miss Houjou High herself, who loves to sing…

Takeya:                             Setsuna Ogiso!

16.3

Takeya:                             The lone-wolf pianist who no one expected to join…

Takeya:                             Kazusa Touma!

16.4

Takeya:                             And our combination guitarist and club mascot, Haruki Kitahara!

FX:                                      Blink

Haruki:                              Wait, I’m… the mascot?

16.5

Takeya:                             Well, yeah, why not? Look how cute you are!

Haruki:                              That’s not a good enough reason…

16.6

Takeya:                             Doesn’t hurt, though, right? People will love on you.

Haruki:                              …Ah, well, yeah, that’s not necessarily a bad thing…

16.7

Haruki:                              …Wh…

Haruki:                              What…?

16.8

Haruki:                              Can’t we at least have an “It was all a dream” ending or something?!

Narration:                        We went with the worst ending.
