Hibike Euphonium Episode 11: Back to euphonium any time soon?

[HorribleSubs] Hibike! Euphonium - 11 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.02_[2015.06.18_06.55.18]

Hopefully, it doesn’t come as a surprise that I’m incredibly upset with how Yuuko acted this week (last week too). She gets everyone in the band riled up against Reina, but then tries to appeal to Reina’s compassionate side (as if she somehow deserves some compassion or something). She tries to use this story about how Kaori didn’t try for a solo part in the previous year because she thought the seniors should have it despite being the best…and that doing so somehow makes it okay for her to do the exact same thing to Reina. It’s almost like Yuuko is saying that the old seniority system is justified in some ways.

At the end of the day, Kaori ends up making the decision that better suits the band as a whole, giving up the solo. But it sets this audition up to be pretty much an elaborate trap set by Taki. He offers her the solo at the end despite the fact that only three people voted as a way to test her…I’m not even convinced he would have given it to her if she had taken it (as most high school students probably would). But all that aside, I know I have glossed over some specific aspects of this episode that are floating around online…and I’m pretty sure I have no idea what you’re talking about. Moving on…
