Sing some harmony tells the story of the beautiful and mysterious Shion (Tao Tsuchiya) who is transferred to Keibu High School where she quickly becomes popular for her open-hearted personality and exceptional athletic talent… but she turns out to be an AI (artificial intelligence) in the test phase! Shion’s goal is to bring the chronic loner Satomi (Haruka Fukuhara) “joy.” But her strategy is something no human would expect: she serenades Satomi in the middle of the class. After finding out that Shion is an AI, Satomi and his childhood friend, engineering geek Toma (Asuka kudo), warm up regularly with the new student. With the popular and attractive Gotchan (Kazuyuki Okitsu), the strong Aya (Mikako Komatsu), and member of the judo club “Thunder” (Satoshi hino), they become more and more moved by Shion’s singing voice and seriousness even as his antics baffle them. But what Shion does for Satomi’s sake ends up involving them all in a serious pandemonium… Prepare for the heartwarming story of a not quite market ready AI and her classmates!
Sing some harmony is written and directed by Yasuhiro Yoshiura, who won the “Award of Excellence” in the Animation Division of the Japan Media Arts Film Festival for her work on Patema Inverted: Beginning of the Day, and the “Best Anime Award” in the OVA Division of the Tokyo International Anime Fair for Time of Eve.
