Kyoto Animation opened the official web for its television anime of Ayano Takeda's Hibike! Euphonium Kitauji Kōkō Suisōgaku-bu e Yōkoso (Sound! Euphonium Welcome to Kitauji High School's Musical Instrument Club) novel on Sunday. The website is streaming the promotional video that is also running at a screen at Tokyo Big Sight on Sunday, the first day of Comic Market 87. The video confirms the staff of the television anime at the studio Kyoto Animation, as well as the anime's April premiere date.

Tatsuya Ishihara is directing the anime, and Jukki Hanada is in charge of the series scripts. Shoko Ikeda is designing the characters, and Naoko Yamada is the series technical director. Mutsuo Shinohara is the art director, and Akiyo Takeda is color key artist. Hiroyuki Takahashi is in charge of the musical instrument designs, and Kazuya Takao is the director of photography. Yota Tsuruoka is directing the sound, and Akito Matsuda is composing the music. Kyoto Animation, Pony Canyon, Lantis, and Rakuonsya make up the Hibike! Production Committee.

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.
