The End Times, They are Upon Us

I had heard this series was in the works, but I did not entirely believe it, and I certainly didn't expect...this...
The production values look good and it appears that it it might be pretty faithful to the manga, but....

...Yes, exactly.

UPDATE: It belatedly occurs to me that this blog's review of the manga might be helpful information.

Timing Can Compensate For a Lot

Belatedly Bounding Onto the Band-Wagon

Unlike some other shows I've enjoyed of late, Sound! Euphonium is not hampered by budget considerations or any learning curve. Kyo-Ani are the pros from Dover when they apply themselves and they have really pulled out all the stops on this show. The production values are gorgeous and the writing, pacing and characterizations are excellent. More impressively, they have gotten me to care about a dramedy set in a high school band. 

 I'm not even going to try to catch up on episodic reviews of this show, in no small part because Ben and Wonderduck are already doing a fine job on this one, but also because there is such a lot to take in. Each episode warrants at least a second viewing to catch every character bit or subtle attention to detail. There is an awful lot to like here...

Oh my yes...verily.
