700https://i.ur.com/yi4Sxao.jpg Term in case you dont know: KyoAni Kyoto Animation the anime studio that made this show. You know guys it really is amazing to me how often KyoAni can make the most emotional heartwrenching shit I have ever seen and this series is no exception. Sound Euphonium was such an enjoyable watch all the way through that it kind of makes me mad that it took me so long to get around to watching it. From the very first moment Hazuki named her tuba tubacabra I knew I was going to love this anime I just did know how much until now. Like guys I dont think I can really get across how amazing this show really is now was it the most heartwrenching anime Ive ever seen? NO nor was it the most heartwrenching KyoAni anime Ive ever seen. But watching this anime was genuinely one of the most heartwarming/enjoyable things I have done in a long time. 500https://thumbs.gfycat.com/VagueLastCamelsmall.gif Now This show is kind of misleading based off the promotional photos because the show really isnt about the music of a concert band because the real focus of the show is friendship rather than music and the fact that they cut away from the national performance at the end really ingrained what the main focus of this show really is. But at least to me this is honestly not a bad thing because every arc of this show where you learn a little bit more about each of the band members was absolutely heartwarming for me to watch and I wouldnt have it any other way. Then on top of this the little details they add to really emphasize that this story follows Komiko Oumaes point of view really were touching to see. Like how they comment on the fact that its actually not common for people of different sections to know each other or how they highlight the amount of breath training really goes into being able to make the right sounds in your instrument. All of this together made this anime feel so alive and vivid every moment it was playing and the fact that I actually cared about the side characters problems like the oboe player Mizore Yoroizuka really just speaks to how well made this anime is. 500https://media.giphy.com/media/kH2kcTMohNPWw/giphydownsizedlarge.gif However obviously this show is not all sunshine and rainbows there are some negatives and if I really wanted to nitpick about them I could. For Example I really would have appreciated more music in this show or the way every character just falls to the sidelines anytime Kumiko wants to focus on literally anything else was kind of irritating. Or how Kumiko is kind of too perfect as the main character since not only is she a first year that is already better at her instrument than the third years but she also just happens to be the perfect person for everyone to talk to regardless of grade level. 500https://media1.tenor.com/images/9244e7359513b70d14189a0a8bbf9c37/tenor.gif?itemid=5571703 But honestly all these nitpicks are just that NIT PICKS and realistically I didnt really care about the majority of them while watching the show because this anime flows so well from episode to episode and it was just so enjoyable for me to watch that really all these nitpicks just kind of faded away while I experienced this story. Which is why I am proud to give this show for the first time in a long time 100/100 because honestly there is nothing I would really improve about this show. Even the ending where it ends on a semicliffhanger I am still content with what we got and where it left off. So honestly Im fine with it not getting a third season if that is what it came to. Bottom line this show was FUCKING FANTASTIC and I will permanently have that concert song Crescent Moon Dance stuck in my mind forever 128079128522128079128522128079128522128079 https://www..com/watch?v=cHQJX8a8CWc
