12 Days of Anime – [2] Hibike! Euphonium

A really good review of the show.

Anime B&B

The audition: terrifying, exhilarating, and honest. You face the judges, but most of all, you face yourself–your progress and shortcomings. Most musicians undergo countless number of auditions. I auditioned in high school, several times in college, and in competition. In Hibike! Euphonium, Reina and Kaori must audition for the solo part for their band’s competition performance. The first trial is closed, with student and instructor alone behind the door. With the rumors that crop up after Reina’s win, a second trial is then held on stage before the entire group.

Himegari Dungeon Meister third

So I gave my magic power up in order to escalate the growth rate of my mare familiar. And how did she repay me…by slapping me for touching her (; – ; )

Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken 2

I was quite hype for this short to get a second season as I really enjoy the first season. This sequel actually has a more serious tone than its prequel. There was more episodes with easier to follow storyline and see-able progression. This has less of its original slap-stick comedy, because of its more serious outlook following Kaoru’s pregnancy and the couple life together. It is sad to less of the silliness, but I think this is a good progression of the show making use changes a family goes through as they welcome a new member into their life.
