Was the change to the character designs really necessary? Is it obligatory for every Kyo Ani show to have generic, podgy, wide eyed K-ON style designs now?
Who cares? Euphonium isn't even a LN so it doesn't have many illustrations, what you're asking is like asking why the Harry Potter movies changed the characters' appearance from how they were in the covers of the books.
Besides, the Euphonium novel designs kinda stink, and the ones KyoAni gave them are Disappearance designs, not K-on or anything else.
>and the ones KyoAni gave them are Disappearance designs
Disappearance? That's just milder Clannad and it's definitely not even close, you're retarded.
The art is pretty much exactly like Amagi's.
The character designer for a show makes basically the templates that everyone else uses for the animation, so, if the designer is the same person who did designs for other prior anime, then it's not uncommon to see his/her same hallmarks in faces show up again. That's how studios can inadvertently lay claim (intentional or not) to a certain look, if they use that same designer for a lot of different series.
Even if it's a different character designer for a different series, if the higher-ups in the studio feel that it should look a little more like their prior shows then they will make it so.
What would have happened if Asuza got into the jazz club instead of the keion club. But without Asuza.
well played...I was jk, don't give a fuck that much about character designs as to start a thread. They can look like cucumbers as far as i am concerned, as long as the show is entertaining. And they still have them legs from OPs pic.

not even the manga kept the original designs, they were pretty plain
LN Manga Anime designs in that order
this show is about a concert band that competes in national tournaments every year. After their seniors have graduated, the club goes into a slump and has failed to qualify even in their regionals. Then, they get a new adviser and their goal is to get into nationals again. The focus of the novel is around several characters and how they juggle their music performances with their school life and academics.
Unlike K-ON though, it's an actual club with a full ensemble of members instead of five girls sitting around and eating cake with Mugi.
