It’s time to take this show to the big stage!
On Friday, the official Sound! Euphonium (Hibike! Euphonium) anime website updated with a new visual for upcoming film Gekijō-ban Hibike! Euphonium ~ Kitauji Kōkō Suisōraku-Bu e Yōkoso~ (Sound! Euphonium the Movie: Welcome to the Kitauji High School Concert Band).
The website also revealed that, starting on February 14, select theaters will give Valentine’s Day-themed reversible posters out to people who purchase advance tickets. As always, posters will be given while supplies last. The film will open in Japanese theaters on April 23.
Gekijō-ban Hibike! Euphonium ~ Kitauji Kōkō Suisōraku-Bu e Yōkoso~ will cover the events of the original anime series, retelling the events that led Kitauji High’s concert band to the prefectural band competition. A sequel is also in production, which will take place after the first season’s finale.
Sound! Euphonium aired during the spring 2015 broadcast season. The 13-episode series was helmed by Tatsuya Ishihara (Clannad After Story, Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions) at Kyoto Animation. Shoko Ikeda (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya) provided character designs, while Jukki Hanada (Nichijou – My Ordinary Life, Love Live! School Idol Project) took charge of series composition.
PonyCan USA currently holds the rights to the series in North America. The company is planning a Blu-Ray release, though specific release dates, formats, or pricing are still unknown. In addition to the physical release, Crunchyroll is streaming the series in its entirety on their digital platform.
