I want to echo with you!
Sound! Euphonium is the story of a high school brass band. This movie will be the first one Taichi Ogawa is directing and will use Kumiko and Asuka from Season 2 as the main focus. From Asuka to Kumiko, it feels like something will be passed on from one to the other.
We, the Brass Band of Kitauji High School, decided to participate in the nationwide contest. The heat of the summer is fading and leaving us to the cool breeze of the autumn winds. Senpai might quit… The shock hit us hard, it wasn’t easy to suppress this insecure feeling. Senpai, you are very special, with your beauty and charisma everybody in Eupho is relying on you. But in a passing moment your face turns to ice, you push people away from you with just a glance and can’t show your true self to anybody.
I want us to participate in the nationals.
You wanted it the most, pretending to be an adult when you were just a high school student.
I dislike you, when you are like that, Senpai. Maybe I even hated it. But I… I want to echo together with you. In that warm melody.
