The staff of the Anime NYC convention announced on Friday that Pony Canyon will host the North American premiere of Sound! Euphonium, The Movie I want to resonate with you… (Gekijō-ban Hibike! Euphonium: Todoketai Melody), the second flashback film for the Sound! Euphonium anime, at this year's event. Producer Shinichi Nakamura will be in attendance.

In addition, Pony Canyon will bring Kase-san and Morning Glories director Takuya Satō and producer Yūsuke Terada for a screening of the anime.

Sound! Euphonium, The Movie I want to resonate with you… opened in Japan on September 30. The film looks back on the events of the second season of the anime series.

Tatsuya Ishihara (both seasons of Sound! Euphonium) served as chief director, and Taichi Ogawa (unit director for Tamako Love Story, A Silent Voice) directed the film.

The first compilation film, Gekijō-ban Hibike! Euphonium: Kitauji Kōkō Suisōgaku-Bu e Yōkoso, opened in 2016 and recapped the events of the first anime series. Neither compilation film has previously opened in North America.

Nakamura has served as producer for numerous Pony Canyon titles, including Liz and the Blue Bird, A Silent Voice, Sound! Euphonium, Violet Evergarden, Free!, Beyond the Boundary, Tamako Market, K-ON!, CLANNAD, Kanon, AIR, and Rozen Maiden. He has also served as music producer on a number of titles, including Kase-san and Morning Glories, A Silent Voice, Tamako Market, and Cute High Earth Defense Club.

Satō's works as a director include Kase-san and Morning Glories, Steins;Gate, Girls Beyond the Wasteland, Strawberry Marshmallow, and Say, "I Love You". He has also provided series composition for anime such as Fate/stay night, The Great Passage, Strawberry Marshmallow, and Say, "I Love You". He and Terada also attended the U.S. premiere of Kase-san and Morning Glories at Anime Expo in July.

Terada has been working with Pony Canyon since 2013, primarily as a producer on animated projects such as Kase-san and Dagashi Kashi 2. His latest work was as a producer for the home video of the live-action Futari Monologue show.

Anime NYC will be held at the Javits Center in New York City from November 16-18.
