More about the Sound! Euphonium series
Sound! Euphonium anime is based on the novel series of the same name written by Ayano Takeda. The novels are published by Takarajimasha under their Takarajimasha Bunko imprint. Yen Press licensed the Sound! Euphonium’s novels in English. It describes the story as follows:
Finding herself, one note at a time…
After a terrible disappointment at the All-Kyoto Concert Band Competition, music has lost its spark for Kumiko. But her first year at Kitauji High School is a chance for a fresh start. So when it comes time to choose a club, she can’t resist joining the band again–even though they’re simply terrible. The strict new club director has promised to whip them into shape to reach Nationals, but the trouble runs deeper than just a lack of practice. Plus, the discord within the club tugs at Kumiko’s old insecurities. Will Kitauji High School find its rhythm before the competition? Will Kumiko?
A manga adaptation of the novels with art by Hami was serialized on the Kono Manga ga Sugoi! web publication.
The first two seasons of the Sound! Euphonium anime is directed by Tatsuya Ishihara at Kyoto Animation. Both the seasons are available at Crunchyroll.
