Heyo everyone. Its meh KumikoOumae!
I just recently acquired the Sound! Euphonium Volume 1. I was so elated. Like I was literally jumping off the walls. As of now, I am reading it and taking notes so that I can post some important detail about the book’s differences as opposed to the anime’s. Overall I am really glad that they translated it. I hope with all my heart that the other 5 books get translated as well because this story has had a huge impact on my life. The way I am able to connect to it is unbelievable.
One of the funny things I’ve read is that Midori says something that doesn’t match her character at all. She uses the slang word, “Thang”. I think it may be a translation typo but still. Imagine her saying that in the anime. Like out of nowhere.
Anyway, I’ll try and keep you updated to where I am in the book. I’m also writing the chapter summaries in the books page on the Wikia so you’ll be able to get a small glimpse of what you might want to buy.
As of now I’m on page 42.
