Ep 1

OH Noice! KyoAni really put some nice budget into this! It still retains the typical but likable kyoani designs, but with even sleeker animation. Its just so pretty. It has a nice OP, although I was hoping something with a bit more.... *un-intelligible sound*...Umph!

I am so happy the MH, Kumi, is skilled, and not starting from the bottom/basics, (that band was indeed sloppy). Sapphire (Midori) is way adorable, I am pretty much already attached to her.



Anyway ready for the Music, bring it on. Enjoyed this opening episode quite a bit

EDIT: forgot to mention the Asuka is....pretty.../yes




Like the much younger version of the Rail Wars boss...

Episode 1

Hmm, cute start. I'm pretty sure this show will focus on a mixture of things like relationship and music talent building. I mean, I want to know more about Kumiko and Kousaka's relationship in the past! Sapphire and the other girl Katou has a good chemistry with Kumiko so far though so I think they will get along well.

Oh and Katou is a cutie:

Episode 1
Visual wise great as always (as expected of KyoAni),storywise ehh...but it's only the first episode so this might improve however doubtful that might be.

11:39 Dat reaction.

Reina seems like she's going to be annoying in the future episodes,can already see some forced melodrama to coming involving that Nationals things from their previous year.

Fantastic start to the show. The character designs and backgrounds are gorgeous.

Kumiko's voice actress is terrific too.

Also thought that both guy characters, Kumiko's childhood friend, and the conductor-to-be were well acted and well designed.

Looking forward to more beautiful art and hopefully a good story.

I've been off the KyoAni train for a little bit, but I think a solid slice of life CGDCT like this will get me back on. I steadfastly refuse to watch Free, and I couldn't get into Amagi Brilliant Park.

Guess I'll go add this to my queue.

Episode 1

Nice to have another music anime, even if last season's one made me die just a little inside. KyoAni, as always, brought great visuals.

The main heroine, Kumiko, seems to be a highly impressionable person; one moment, as the school rejoices at getting gold, she's happy, then she turns and sees the contrasting reaction of her classmate, Kousaka.
This moment influences her to not join Kitaouji's 'mediocre' concert band club at various points through the episode until her classmates spark a fond memory of hers. Then with a well timed, gentle push from them, she ultimately decides to join.

Kousaka's passion for success will certainly cause friction along the way.

The mouthpiece scene reminded me of how difficult it was for me to make that first sound from a trumpet. You start blowing various different raspberries, to no avail
Not to deter/gross anyone out but I was also amazed at


A nice start to the series - we'll see how it progresses.

Sound! Euphonium looks like it's going to be a blast. Now as for how much music they play, that's still up for debate. It had some great visuals and good sound. Really glad the MH is already skilled and not a beginner. Character designs were nice. I hope the drama they ended the episode with wraps up fast. I don't want to spend a whole lot of time of that. Asuka is already a trip. Loved her

Not quite as moe as I expected it to be, so no K-On!!! for us, but nonetheless an enjoyable first episode. Visuals are great, music shows score big with me in general and this looks like it could potentially be a fun slice of life with some decent conflict. I am excited, one of the better debut episodes this spring.

I don't know why, you probably have your reasons for it, but if it is only because you have doubts about the quality of the show, Free! is actually surprisingly good

I already want the next episode!

First Impressions

1 Nice to see a music anime besides Idols / Light Music

2 The animation is very nice

3 Lots of story to be told!

4. The music instrument details I am glad they didnt censor Yahama as they orobally have something to do with it!

5 The ED song "Tutti!" sung by the 4 main girl VA's just took me by surprise. Nice to see a Ska-Punk Skate song being used! Brass is used widely in SKA bands FYI

6 Easily in my top 5 when I do my first ranking . A plesant surprise indeed

As someone who spent 12 years playing trumpet, this is a no-brainer to watch and hopefully nobody will die in _this_ seasons musical anime.
