Ao no Orchestra or The Blue Orchestra is a manga that revels in the love of music. Still, it doesnt stop at being a simple music-based series and portrays how its characters overcome their trauma through their love for playing.
Aono, the protagonist, might seem like a moody brat at first, but slowly you will realize why he doesn’t want to play the violin anymore. In comes a moodier brat, Akine, who will raise a storm in Aono’s life and force him to face his trauma.
The manga has enjoyed fans’ love for quite a while now, and it was high time that it received the attention it deserves. The Blue Orchestra manga by Makoto Akui has been greenlit for an anime adaptation.
To commemorate the decision, Akui-sensei has posted a beautiful illustration where all the main characters can be seen surprised by the anime announcement:
Ao no Orchestra Animate! !! !! !! !! !! !! !!

Just as the name suggests, The Blue Orchestra is about a band of musicians who will make an orchestra.
So instead of focusing on just one or two characters, you will get to see the musical journey of a whole team of youngsters who strive to make their melodies known to the entire world.
Of course, the anime will come with a sprinkling of all the problems Aono and his friends will face both inside and outside school. Akine, for example, seems like a tough nut to crack, but she silently suffers at school due to bullying.
Will their love and passion for music get these teenagers through the hardships in life?
