White Album Review HD 720p (PS3 Tsuzurareru Fuyu no Omoide version)


This video is a review of the game Japanese game White Album: Tsuzurareru Fuyu no Omoide for the Sony Playstation 3. I talk about my impressions of the game. I’ve played through 3 story arcs, the main one (Morikawa Yuki), as well as Rina Ogata, and Mana Mizuki’s routes. Please enjoy my discussion of the gameplay, story, and characters.

Minor clarifications: I’d like to clarify when I am discussing Rina my main point when I mention her views on art and expensive china is that she is somewhat cultured.

Also when I talk about the story in the game, what I mean more specifically is that the game is effective at making you care about the characters and combined with a decent story makes the game effective at conveying emotion.

A “best of” version is available: http://www.play-asia.com/SOap-23-83-5pyk-71-bp-49-en-84-j-70-4ere.html

Also a sequel is available: http://www.play-asia.com/SOap-23-83-5pyk-71-bp-49-en-84-j-70-5i57.html

White Album Review HD 720p (PS3 Tsuzurareru Fuyu no Omoide version)


  1. The main problem with White Album is that the main character is an awful person. I'm not even exaggerating: He is a terrible, terrible man. 

  2. Thank you for posting this game. I have wanted some understanding of White Album and it really is quite beautiful. I wish this game could have the "adult" parts removed and be brought to the US, but it will never happen.

  3. Keep in mind I still don't understand half of the Japanese in these games but I'm slowly getting better. As for reading vs. speaking, in class you learn both, writing too. Currently though I'm just focused on reading. I don't care as much about speaking and writing, though I hope the reading will help with the speaking since I try to visit Japan every few years and I'd like to feel like my speaking is improving too.

  4. Nah, I started in college. I took over 2 years college level during which I did a summer program where I studied in Japan for a summer. Very cool, and a great way to get started. After that I wanted to keep using it even though I wasn't that good so I started fan translating video games. After doing that for a while I just started trying to play games raw. Turns out I can do ok on a lot of games. Right now though I'm actually studying kanji and vocab. I'm using Renshuu.org. It's pretty helpful.

  5. What was your process in learning Japanese? Self taught? If so, how'd you do it? Did you learn to read or speak first?

  6. I love the Animation and character design *-*
    The voice actors and the story is great too :3
    I got this last time and I can recommend it If you like Japanese Adventure Games ^-^

  7. @kriegsage Furigana would help, especially since HD displays can handle it now. However, this is an M rated game (CERO D in Japan [and speaking of which, why is 17+ mature and 18+ adult? That's only one year.]) so it's assumed you can read the kanji at that age. For furigana you want to look at games for a younger audience. You may want to try out Ni no Kuni, (the US release just pushed back to later this year) which *does* include furigana. I'll probably make a review for it soon.

  8. @kriegsage Thanks! Glad to hear you are learning some Japanese in order to play this game. I started similarly to be able to understand some of the games I was trying out 15 or so years ago. Playing games in Japanese is a great way to learn more and get better at reading and listening. I hope you enjoy it!

  9. I really liked your review! I'm currently learning Japanese (beginner level) just to play this remake since there is no PC version of it, thus no translation patch of any kind.

    As for the game, I personally think the inclusion of furigana for the dialogue log would have been a beneficial implement with zero downside. Dimensionally speaking, the dialogue log box is more than adequate, Also, the inclusion of furigana alone could have given the game the complete feeling of a novel.

  10. @Animagic4u Sorry I never responded to your comment. Thanks so much! I think I enjoy them even more now. A lot of times when I'm sitting down for some game time I just don't have the energy for something with more action or that is more complicated. VNs are straightforward to play and normally pay off with a decent story. Any recommendations?

  11. @aaronlestrike Thanks! I'm planning to do more but I've been busy recently. Looking forward to playing some Suzumiya Haruhi no Tsuisou. I popped it in for a few minutes but I haven't really sat down to play it since then. I'm planning to get Queen's Gate Spiral Chaos of course too in July.

    @DogStreetXero Go for it! 🙂 I hope you enjoy. Just be prepared that the main point of the game is the story so you may be missing a lot.
