After swearing off music due to an incident at the middle school regional concert band competition, euphonist Kumiko Oumae enters high school hoping for a fresh start. As fate would have it, she ends up being surrounded by people with an interest in the high school brass band. Kumiko finds the motivation she needs to make music once more with the help of her bandmates, some of whom are new like novice tubist Hazuki Katou; veteran contrabassist Sapphire Kawashima; and band vice president and fellow euphonist Asuka Tanaka. Others are old friends, like Kumiko's childhood friend and hornist-turned-trombonist Shuuichi Tsukamoto, and trumpeter and bandmate from middle school, Reina Kousaka.

However, in the band itself, chaos reigns supreme. Despite their intention to qualify for the national band competition, as they currently are, just competing in the local festival will be a challenge—unless the new band advisor Noboru Taki does something about it.

Since I'm a big fan of Hibike! Euphonium, I decided to watch the movie yesterday and this movie was just 1 hour and 43 minutes of RECAP OF THE 1ST SEASON.

Don't expect any new scenes in the movie because I can assure you that there aren't any. If you're going to watch the 2nd Season of Hibike and you've watched the 1st Season but it's been a long time since you watched the 1st Season then you can watch the movie as a refresher because all the important plot points are in the movie. Otherwise, watch the 1st Season if you want a true ...

To sum it up: it's a compressed version of the first season. It does however, have minor new scenes. Emphasis on minor. And it's only two. I'll go through what they are at the end of this review because it's a slight spoiler from the first season.

I definitely recommend you watch this if you want a fresh up on what happened in the first season before watching the second season. But I do NOT recommend to watch this if you haven't watched the first season. It skips out on a lot of details that was in the first season and it'll ruin the experience ...

"I hope we make it to nationals. I've had that wish since middle school. But back then, I was only saying it. I never thought of actually trying to make it happen. I thought that it'd be stupid to get my hopes up, only to embarrass myself. But... Wishes don't come true unless you mean it when you make them."

I think many of us face this dilemma: to try our best with the possibility of failure or put in some effort and do average. At least I do. I am afraid of putting in all my effort and not achieve results which in a way ...
