This is about a class orchestra that enters a contests.
The show is completely character driven due to the ending being inevitable no matter what happens during the show….is that good thing?? There is a little conflict for 2-3 episode and then back to nothing for the rest of the show.
I know this is a wired way of describing a show but, this feels likes other scale twin of k-on.
*They are both made by Kyoto Animation (anime fan 101: learn about kyoani )*
- k-on = skims the music and concentrates on the girls friendship/bond.
- Sound! Euphonium = skims the friendship and concentrates on the music.
For a show that is character driven there is a real lack of “characters” to drive it along. The show doesn’t lack in people it could use to move an interesting side story….it just that I really wouldn’t care any of them, (excluding the girl in the image above) they are all clearly copy paste clones that are there just to fill the class.
If I had to guess it’s final score I would say above average.
My score 6/10
It was heavily dragged down by the lack of chemistry the students had and the constant pretending that the show had a story when it really didn’t have one.
I don’t know any of you people!
Y_Y Can you really call these 3 girls the main characters? The show focuses on everyone as a group and when it’s not doing that they only talk about their instruments.
I feel like the story is taking away my attention from a school music class documentary every time they cut away to the girls have a natural conversation….which is rare!
I’m on episode 6 and I know nothing about these girls outside of their instruments.
O_O I’m looking at walking puppets!
You could have exchanged the girls in these episodes with anyone and I would not have cared because I don’t feel there struggle.
What angers me is that the anime is trying to cover up its bland characters with shading and music; in short the anime is manipulating you.
It’s trying to pretend there is this deeper meaning to the events going on when the truth of the matter is we are just watching a school try and win a contest (there is no drama outside of the normal struggles any student would have).
*It doesn’t help that problems are resolved too fast.*
This animation is bad! If I told you this anime was produced by Kyoto Animation would you believe me? K-on had a better understanding of how to reflect music then this stiff mess. *only being mean because it’s Kyoto Animation .*
We have been introduced to some girls……that’s it.
One wants big boobs,
One is disappointed that her school didn’t go to nationals
And the final one……..I think she is the protagonist.
