In the film, Kumiko is now in her second year at Kitauji High School, “and with a new year comes new problems,” according to a news release. “As if making it to Nationals wasn’t hard enough, Kumiko is tasked with mentoring the concert band’s troublesome first years — each with their own distinct personality and problems to solve. With Kumiko busy juggling both the concert band and her new role as senpai, how does her relationship with Shuichi fit into the picture?”
Sound! Euphonium is a popular franchise, starting as a series of YA novels and adapted into a manga and an anime series that ran for two seasons.
