Sound! Euphonium ending (reaction)

Was it good???????

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.

what pretentious trash!

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.*

CaptureBorrrrrrred! It’s so sllllooooow!

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.

*I could’t tell you who is who.*
Kyoto Animation has a habit of making shows that don’t really have characters, they are usually onenote stereotypes with only there hair to distinguish who they are….which is kind of the problem here.
I will admit that they have captured that school feel and all of the students harmonies together just as the mandatory uniform intended…. which again is the problem.

T-o I don’t know if it’s because I went to a high school that had a lot of commotion going on every minute of the day (loads of dead bodies) *^_o ofsted still gave us a high rating.* but, I don’t remember high school life being so boring.
O_O Are Japaneses schools so under filled that they can fit the entire school in one assembly hall! when I was in school we had to go in one year at a time (then you would be punished if the school bus was late).

^_^ Anime like this make me wish for a show about a high school from the uk: Here we have some year 9 boys trying to sneak there way into the year 7 toilets, they don’t have a door on there toilet entrance so a hoard of girls tended to hang around trying to watch them pee.
