Hibike! Euphonium begins when Kumiko Oumae, a girl who was in the brass band club in junior high school, visits her high school’s brass band club as a first year. Kumiko’s classmates Hazuki and Sapphire decide to join the club, but Kumiko sees her old classmate Reina there and hesitates. She remembers an incident she had with Reina at a brass band club contest in junior high school.
Lately my schedule has been really busy but I finally got the chance to finish this anime today.
Ok, let’s get started. This anime is similar to K-On. But K-On has more “moe” factors while this one has more “feels” factor. Well, the concept of Hibike! Euphonium is similar to K-On. It’s about music. KyoAni (Kyoto Animation) did another great job on this anime. The art was amazing and the sound is really superb, not superb, the sound was a masterpiece. That’s KyoAni for you.
I feel like Oumae Kumiko, the main character of Hibike! Euphonium, is the matured version of Yui Hirasawa, the main character of K-On! Well, it’s just a feeling.
Let’s go with the story, Kumiko Oumae is a girl who was in the brass band club during her junior high school. Their band entered the National Competion but although they got a Gold Award, only the best Golds will be able to compete to the Nationals. So they got Gold, but it’s not a guarantee of going through. So it’s a dud Gold.
As Kumiko Oumae graduated from junior high, she chose Kitauji High School to be her new school. The reason why she chose Kitauji High School is that she wants to start fresh where she doesn’t know much people from her old school.
Kumiko decided to join the concert band because her new friends from her new school wants her to join. But as she entered the room for the concert band, she saw her old classmate, Reina Kousaka. She hesitates to join but she joined the concert band anyway.
I’ll stop the story here because this will turn into an essay if I keep going LOL. I know you guys hate reading really long reviews so I’ll stop here. (Well some people like long reviews).
The ending of this anime was satisfying, although this season was really short on my opinion, it was really good. Hoping that this anime will get another season.
