Sound! Euphonium 2, the second season of Kyoto Animation’s Sound! Euphonium anime, is closer than ever to its October release, those fall months mere weeks away. The new series’ first promo video is streaming on the show’s official website as of today (August 12th), and it offers a teaser of the anime’s story with English narration.
The site also states that the Kitauji High School Concert Band’s first regular concerts in Kyoto, to be held on October 1st and 2nd, will feature Yuko Yoshikawa seiyu Yuri Yamaoka as a talk show guest. The Kanagawa performances on November 20th will then invite Minako Kotobuki, Asuka Tanaka’s voice actor in the first season, to talk about the show. The website previously revealed two new additions to the cast, in Atsumi Tanezaki (The Perfect Insider‘s Moe Nishinosono) and Nao Toyama (Nisekoi‘s Chitoge).
TRUE, who also performed the first season’s opening theme song, are returning to perform the new opening theme ‘Soundscape’. Kitauji Quartet will also return to perform an as-yet-untitled ending theme song.
The first anime series adapted Ayano Takeda and Nikki Asada’s novel Hibike! Euphonium Kitauji Koko Suisoraku-Bu e Yokoso, following the Kitauji High School Concert Band in their efforts to regain their school’s past glory in the national competitions. The second series will pick up where the first left off, and show us how they’ve moved on from their tense performance in the national qualifiers.
