White Album -- Characters & Seiyuus

Here's some love for the unjustly maligned new anime White Album. Through two episodes, it is a promising seinen drama with complex relationships and characters who all seem to have unexpected aspects.

One thing it has is a fascinating cast, with a range of famous, infamous, and neglected voice actors. Mizuki Nana, Hirano Aya, Maeno Tomoaki, Paku Romi, Sakaguchi Daisuke, Hayami Shou....

To help keep the characters and the cast-members straight, I have made a table with pics of the main characters and voice-actors, along with a bit of info about the voice-actors' previous roles:

Touya X Haruka,
Touya X Akira X Misaki
Touya X Rina X Yuki

I'm impressed with this series so far, especially the artwork. I like how the previews are done in watercolors and minimalistic animation, and some of the tricks they've played (like how during a phone conversation the camera panned past the images of the two like a strip of film). I wouldn't say it's entirely like nothing I've seen before, but they're using some interesting expressionistic techniques.

Even if it doesn't become a hit, I hope it's at least remembered for the art.
