Sound Euphonium (Hibike Euphonium) is based on a series of novels by Ayano Takeda and was adapted into an anime series in 2015, followed by a compilation movie in April 2016. The second season aired during Fall 2016 and in addition to the recap movie Sound Euphorium ~Todoketai Melody~ coming out this year, two completely new movies are scheduled to be released in 2018.

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. Because I like you, Senpai!
