posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Ponycan USA announced on Tuesday that it is offering replacement discs for its first volume of the Sound! Euphonium anime, after discovering that the audio on the first two episodes on the disc are only monoaural instead of stereo. The company will replace all discs of all those who purchased from RightStuf automatically, while those who did not purchase their discs from RightStuf will be able to participate in a replacement program through RightStuf.
Ponycan USA released the anime's first home video volume on Blu-ray Disc and DVD on June 10, with the second volume on July 10, and the third on August 10.
The anime adapts Ayano Takeda's Hibike! Euphonium Kitauji Kōkō Suisōgaku-bu e Yōkoso (Sound! Euphonium Welcome to Kitauji High School's Musical Instrument Club) novel. 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.
The anime premiered in April 2015. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan. An anime film compilation of the anime opened in Japan on April 23, while a sequel television anime will premiere in October.
