Kyoto Animation Linked to Sound! Euphonium TV Anime

posted on by Egan Loo

The website of Takarajimasha's Kono Manga ga Sugoi! (This Manga Is Amazing!) guide posted an article about its manga adaptation of Ayano Takeda's Hibike! Euphonium Kitauji Kōkō Suisōgaku-bu e Yōkoso (Sound! Euphonium Welcome to Kitauji High School's Musical Instrument Club) novel in November. The title of the article initially said "Big Announcement on Sound! Euphonium's Anime Adaptation!! The Production Is By Kyoto Anime!?" but it has since been changed.

The domain name anime-eupho.com resolves to the IP address 133.242.3.144 — the current home of www.kyotoanimation.co.jp.

A person named Kaname Tanimura, who said that he was working on the Comic Market event's setup on Saturday, added that people can anticipate a promotional video of Kyoto Animation's new work about instrumental music.

Takarajimasha announced the Sound! Euphonium anime in October, and has since revealed that the anime will air on television. More information will be available on Sunday. (Comic Market 87 begins on Sunday.)

The original novel's story follows the Kitauji Music club, which used to always advance to national competitions. Ever since the adviser changed, though, it has not advanced past the Kansai tournament. However, thanks to the newly appointed adviser's strict instruction, the students are steadily improving. The club members' daily lives are full of ups and downs including fights over solos and the decision to resign club activities to focus on studies.

Thanks to Kagayaki for the news tip
