The official Kyoto Animation YouTube channel has now revealed a new trailer for their upcoming Sound! Euphonium: Todoketai Melody film. This new trailer talks about Kitauji’s road to the Nationals, as well as teases Asuka’s backstory. KyoAni also revealed a brand new visual for the upcoming film, and it features both Asuka and Kumiko.
The video, as well as the new visual, both focus on Asuka and Kumiko. This is because a huge part of the film will focus on their relationship as senpai and kouhai. Both euphonium players will be taking center stage for the film… along with the rest of the Kitauji band of course.
The film will premiere in Japan on 30th September 2017. It will follow the events of the anime’s second season, which is when Kitauji is preparing for the Nationals. However, something from Asuka’s past makes her not want to compete. As usual, Kumiko wants to help her get through this problem.
