Euphonium ~ Kitauji Kōkō Suisōraku-Bu e Yōkoso~ (Sound! Euphonium the Movie: Welcome to the Kitauji High School Concert Band).

Euphonium anime series has been green-lit.
Sound! Euphonium film will bring us back at the TV anime series which depicted a high school concert band’s journey to the prefectural band competition. Meanwhile, the sequel of the series will reveal what happens afterwards in the story after the conclusion of the Spring 2015 anime series.
Sound! Euphonium anime series was inspired by the 2013 novel “Hibike! Euphonium Kitauji Kōkō Suisōraku-Bu e Yōkoso” by Ayano Takeda.
The story follows the Kitauji High School Concert Band, which used to always advance to national competitions. Ever since the adviser changed, though, it has not advanced past the Kansai tournament. However, thanks to the newly appointed adviser’s strict instruction, the students are steadily improving. The band members’ daily lives are full of ups and downs including fights over solos and the decision to resign extracurricular activities to focus on studies.
The anime series premiered in April 2015 and will be release by Pony Canyon USA in North America.
