As a percussionist in a brass band, I couldn't help but check out this new anime, and I enjoyed the heck out of it. The anime is about a concert band as opposed to a brass band, however. A concert band seems to be a smaller version of an orchestra to me.

All the brass playing techniques were there, and the timpanist nailed the reason to play timpani- "it's a good way to relieve stress." Also, you feel a bit like Thor when you produce thundery rolls. (A good way to disguise your wind is behind a nice ff timpano roll.)

There were some techniques I haven't encountered here in New Zealand (probably because I didn't stick to brass- I got lost in the "pots and pans" department), like keeping a tissue in the air or running a lap before playing. I see that the percussion didn't have to run- nice. I agree physical fitness does help with mental clarity when playing a musical instrument- just anything but running! With a dedicated gym routine, I find that music is easier to grasp  in general, and you can sing higher notes. I have been known to do bicep curls so I could hold some rather hefty cymbals.

Also, the characters are fun and make good comedy. I'm eagerly waiting for the next installment!
As well as Sailor Moon Crystal, MLP:FIM, The Simpsons, Steven Universe, Sofia the First and Adventure Time.

1: I am a European blooded New Zealander. (Because people keep asking me if I'm Ethiopian or not.)
2. I drive a purple car.
3. I enjoy coffee in the morning and early afternoon, and tea at night.
4: I like cartoons as silly as they can get!
5: I have lost 20kg in the last year.
6: I own a tabby cat named Almaz and he has three legs.
7: I like to believe in God, but I'm no religious nutjob. I'm not going to force my opinions on everyone else.
8: I study animation, specialising in backgrounds, but I post mainly still images, mostly containing characters. This keeps things nice and separate. (Oh shoot, that's been spelled wrong for months and I've only just spotted it!)
9: I don't hate any new episodes of cartoons such as the Simpsons. I'm a simple person with a simple craving for animated cartoons.
10: I despise Cartoon Network for adding Live Action shows. Shame on you, shame on you all!
