Soon, a mysterious man named “Tendo” appears before them without identifying his position in the orchestra, spouting out rude jokes in rapid succession. The orchestra members are initially put off by Tendo, but when he picks up and waves the conductor’s baton, he opens them up to a world of music they never knew existed before. Meanwhile, Kosaka is eventually able to let go of his emotional scars and frustrations as he regains his confidence as a musician.
