Synopsis

The long-awaited new work will be screened in theaters as a medium-length animation in the summer of 2023!

Along with the summer brass band competition, the ensemble contest, commonly known as "Ancon," is a place where exciting performances are held. The performance of several people in one group has a charm different from that of a competition.

In order to participate in the Kyoto prefectural tournament of Ancon, a representative team is selected in the school's preliminary round. However, with over 50 members, the Kitauji High School brass band is facing a variety of problems! Will Kumiko, the newly appointed head of the club, be able to make it through the preliminary rounds?

The days of struggle begin.

As an appetizer for the upcoming season it's perfect, I'm left craving more.

The pacing was great, much better than the two summary films, and chikai no finare. True concert band nerds may be left wanting for more performance scenes however.

While it accomplished a lot in its runtime, there was time that could have been better used.

I wish it could've been longer but it gives fans mostly the kind of service they'd want from Hibike.

Only con is that you need to be in Japan to be able to watch it. As OVAs go, it doesn't get much better I think.

What an amazing tease and set up for the 3rd season. Please watch the HIBIKE! EUPHONIUM MOVIE 3: CHIKAI NO FINALE movie before starting this one as it has characters that you might not be familiar with since this is still about Kumiko's 2nd year.
I am pleased with the pacing as it felt just right and the continued character growth for Kumiko is just chef's kiss. The pacing from the last movie felt a bit off and rigid, but this had a much more fluid and familiar flow from the first 2 seasons with the storyline and it felt like a warm welcome to ...

Sound! Euphonium is one of my very favourite series, so when I heard it was getting an OVA ahead of it’s third and final season, I was ecstatic! I will assume you’ve seen the prequels for the purpose of this review. Liz and the Blue Bird is not a required watching for this though.

Story & Characters: Sound! Euphonium: Ensemble Contest Arc takes place after the conclusion of Sound! Euphonium: Our Promise: A Brand New Day, where, even though the band didn’t get invited to Nationals, the club activities still persists. Instead, they decide to take place in the Ensemble Competition for high ...
