Kyoto Animation recently held the “Hibike! Euphonium 5-kaime da yo! Uji de Omatsuri Festival” event in Uji, Kyoto last Saturday. There, the staff revealed a brand new Sound! Euphonium anime project. Unfortunately, they did not reveal whether it will be a TV anime, OVA, ONA, or movie. They also revealed an announcement PV for the upcoming animation project:
This new anime will be centering on Kumiko as a third year. It will be adapting Ayano Takeda’s upcoming 2-part novels which follow Kumiko on her senior year in high school. The first novel is already available, while the second part will hit the shelves on June 17. Meanwhile, character designer Shoko Ikeda released a teaser image for the upcoming anime:
The new anime will introduce Maya Kuroe, who is seen in the teaser visual above. She is a new recruit for the band, and she is also from Sapphire’s former school. However, she is also a very good Euphonium player.
Expect Kyoto Animation to reveal more details on this new anime soon enough.
