A character trailer featuring the main character Kumiko Oumae was also released:
Kumiko, who has become the leader of the Kitauji High School band, faces new challenges in her third year of high school. She will also meet a new friend and rival, Mayu Kuroe, another euphonium player.
Sound! Euphonium is an anime series based on the novel series by Ayano Takeda, published by Takarajimasha. The anime started in 2015, and the latest installment, the Sound! Euphonium: Ensemble Contest OVA, was shown in Japanese cinemas in August 2023.
The first Sound! Euphonium novel is described by Yen Press as:
After a terrible disappointment at the All-Kyoto Concert Band Competition, music has lost its spark for Kumiko. But her first year at Kitauji High School is a chance for a fresh start. So when it comes time to choose a club, she can’t resist joining the band again–even though they’re simply terrible. The strict new club director has promised to whip them into shape to reach Nationals, but the trouble runs deeper than just a lack of practice. Plus, the discord within the club tugs at Kumiko’s old insecurities. Will Kitauji High School find its rhythm before the competition? Will Kumiko?
The Sound! Euphonium anime also consists of recap movies of the first two seasons, the spin-off movie Liz and the Blue Bird, and the 2019 film Sound! Euphonium: Chikai no Finale.
The Sound! Euphonium novel series started in 2013. The most recent book is the 2021 spin-off Tobitatsu Kimi no Se wo Miageru, which focuses on Natsuki Nakagawa.
