Hibike! Euphonium Wiki

Haruka Ogasawara (小笠原 晴香 Ogasawara Haruka) is the recurring secondary character of Sound! Euphonium series.

She plays the baritone saxophone, and serves as the school band's president as well as the saxophone section leader in the main series.


Haruka is a girl of average height and build with shoulder-length dark-brown hair that is tied into two-side twin-tails, and large golden-brown eyes.

She is usually seen with a standard Kitauji High School uniform for third-year students.


Haruka is a relatively friendly and mature girl who shows diligent and responsible leadership. She is polite and can be slightly timid at times. She is shown to be not very fond of Asuka Tanaka's outgoing antics, as she thinks that they may dissuade potential members such as Hazuki Katou from joining the band.

Always in the shadow of Asuka's popularity, she constantly questions her own merits as the band president. She also battles insecurity due to her inability to stop the schism of the previous year from transpiring. Despite that, she is very responsible and committed, and fulfills her duties as band president.


Haruka first appears in Episode 1 as the president of the school's concert band where she reprimands Asuka Tanaka for her behavior towards Kumiko Oumae, Sapphire Kawashima and Hazuki Katou.
