The anime series, which ran for two seasons between 2015 and 2016, traced the interpersonal conflicts of the members of the brass band at the fictional Kitauji High School in Kyoto. Now Kyoto Animation, the studio behind that series, has revisited Kitauji and its band with the film “Liz and the Blue Bird.”
