Blue Orchestra Synopsis
When he was young, Hajime Aono has always been passionate in playing the violin. His dream is to follow in the footsteps of his father, who is a famous violinist in the world. However, when his parents got into a bitter divorce, Aono vowed to never play again.
Aono entered high school without a goal in mind. As such, he did not do well in his athletics class, in which he ended up being injured. While he is recovering in the infirmary, he met the brash Ritsuko Akine who was playing the violin. Aono was unaware that Akine is rumored to be a bully, that led to her being isolated from others.
Akine has a dream of playing in an orchestra, despite her current amateurish skills. The teacher then saw this an opportunity to pair Akine with Aono, so that Aono may be able to teach Akine how to play the violin. Aono is against the idea at first, but when he spent time with Akine, he started to understand her. The two began helping each other, which stirred Aono’s lost passion again.
