    I could tell it was a tuba mouthpiece just by looking
    I am a band geek. This anime had me jumping up and down in my seat with each new gorgeously designed set piece. The bass clarinet had an upturned mouthpiece. The clarinet had a real ligature. Some of the trumpets were silver. Some were gold. All looked amazing. They modeled a bass trombone, every last curving tube, even the trigger mechanism in the corner of the screen. The band had its ...

    Good plot, Good set-up, Top quality. It's just my cup of tea.
    Disclaimer
    - I don't know anything about Sound! Euphonium before.
    - I write this on EP1. (Don't judge book from cover).

    What is Sound! Euphonium ?
    This is Slice of Life anime. If you are looking for something exciting, you are wrong place. And I don't think this will be heavy drama like Your lie in April. However, It sure has more sweet stories behind. Prequel ...

    Memories form this series
    So this series brought back a lot of memories for me. I joined band in elementary school, and played all the way up through college. I actually played the Euphonium too! So this anime hit close to home. Every emotions everyone was feeling in the series, to their dedication, compassion, and disappointment, I easily could understand. Even the friend experiences, and competitions between band ...

    Sound! Euphonium, an anime that's actually about music
    So, after i saw the second preview i was hoping good things because i loved the music in it. But i kept hearing it would be like another K-on witch disappointed me a little. But that was totally wrong, everything about this anime is great. It reminds me of when i was playing in band. Everything is so similar to real band. But the way it puts the instruments together to actually form a real song is ...

    Band geek must watch
    An easy recommendation for anybody who did band in High School, as this series really captures many of the exaggerated emotions and drama that seem to come right along with that activity.

    The show is packed with details, particularly the audio track. It can't have been easy to capture all the nuances of performance, but I feel the music really seems to fit with the action and plot.

    I'd be ...

    Concert Band Striving for the Top
    You got your casual high school with a concert band in need of becoming number one. Its got a good plot that I can focus on and the characters show promise with their friendship and as they get better over the school days. As a band student who plays the stand up bass, I can relate to this and understand the obstacles they have to overcome. It's also a great anime to get into even though you ...

    Fantastic Slice of Life
    This show has:
    -Beautiful looking animation with great camera simulation effects (DoF, Bokeh, etc)
    -Realistic characters that feel human
    -Dialogue that feels natural
    -A seven minute sequence of the band playing at a concert, all fully animated'
    -Accurate portrayal/animation of the characters playing instruments (no cop-out faked animations here)
    -Yuri undertones

    9.5/10

    I'm in love with Tuba-kun
    This, hands down, was the best anime I've ever seen. I've never related to an anime ever, and it really showed the drive some people feel to improve on their instrument! I really wish they would make Tuba-kun key chains and season 2 of Sound! Euphonium! <3 <3 <3 Best anime ever tbh

    So far, so very good!
    I was one of those nerds who was in the marching band all of middle school and high school back in the day, so I was sort of intrigued by the idea of a marching band/ concert band themed show. It's pretty accurate, from my experience anyway, and the quality of the characters and story really rekindled some nostalgic feelings I didn't even know I felt for that time of my life. Extra bonus points ...

    Awesome! Mesmerizing animations. Kumiko rocks
    Pros:

    - Animation quality: mesmerizing, one of the best I've ever seen. The blur and the lights are nerdgasmic.
    - Soundtrack: wonderful selection, the expectations were high considering the theme of the show and it did not disappoint. I love how they show you the difference that makes when you play with sentiment rather than playing mechanically.
    - Characters: Most of them are quite ...
