Come on, you didn’t really expect this one to be over, did you?
Earlier today, fans flocked to the Uji City Cultural Center for a Sound! Euphonium fan event. At the presentation, a new visual was unveiled for the upcoming Sound! Euphonium: Todoketai Melody anime film. More exciting, though, is a reveal that two Sound! Euphonium movies are in the works for 2018 premieres.
Kyoto Animation released a 90-second teaser to promote the projects:
The first film, titled Sound! Euphonium: Mizore to Nozomi no Monogatari (The Story of Mizore and Nozomi), will focus on Nozomi Kasaki and Mizore Yoroizuka. Naoko Yamada (K-On!, A Silent Voice) was tapped to direct the project.
The second movie, titled Sound! Euphonium: 2-Nensei ni Natta Kumiko-tachi (Kumiko and Company Who Became 2nd Year Students), will be a more broad tale that focuses on Kumiko and the other second-year students. Tatsuya Ishihara (Sound! Euphonium, Clannad After Story) is directing the feature at Kyoto Animation.
Presently, though, all eyes are on the upcoming Gekijō-ban Hibike! Euphonium: Todoketai Melody (Sound! Euphonium: Todoketai Melody) compilation film. A new promo video and trailer were unveiled for the film at the event, along with a confirmation that the movie opens on September 30.
Tatsuya Ishihara will serve as chief director for the project, while Taichi Ogawa will take the director’s chair at Kyoto Animation. The feature will retell the events of the show’s second season.
Sound! Euphonium made its anime debut in during the spring 2015 broadcast season. The 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.
Sound! Euphonium‘s second season aired in the Fall 2016 broadcast season.
PonyCan USA currently holds the rights to Sound! Euphonium in North America. The company released Sound! Euphonium on Blu-Ray across three four-episode volumes. In addition to the physical release, Crunchyroll is streaming the series in its entirety on their digital platform.
