Plot Summary of Kono Oto Tomare Season 1
The story of Kono Oto Tomare focuses on the lives of a number of High School students in Kanagawa Prefecture who are a part of the Koto Club of their school. The club they are in is in danger of disassociation because it has a very less number of members who have joined it.
A student named Takezo Kurata is left behind in the Koto Club as the senior members of the club get graduated. He tries very hard to recruit other and more members to the club. A student is known as Chika Kudo also submits his application for joining the club. But Kudo is known to be juvenile, because he destroyed his own grandfather’s Koto Shop. Thus, Kurata is not ready to admit him into the club and shows reluctance towards him.
Eventually, a girl named Satowa Hozuki also joins the club and has planned her own agenda. More and more people start to join the club with the passage of time and they have their own reasons for joining. But gradually, their agenda becomes one and only- to play at the Koto Nationals Competition.
Although, the club is still on the verge of being disbanded due to some reasons. But the club is saved from disassociation or disbanding when a new student, named Sakai Tomoya arrives at the school and in their club. They together prepare for the competition coming ahead and Season 1 ends.
Plot Summary of Kono Oto Tomare Season 2
The second season of Kono Oto Tomare starts exactly where it was left off. Sakai Tomoya is now a diligent member of the club who inspires and prepares everybody in the club to put their efforts into preparing for the competition.
The club has to struggle a lot to win the competition so that they can keep their club alive and popular. In their journey of preparing for the competition, they get to know many things about each other and themselves.
The second season focuses mainly on the character development of Sakai Tomoya and Kurata Chizuru. Sakai Tomoya attempts to become a better Koto player so as to win the competition while Chizuru is trying to figure out her feelings for Tomoya.
Will there be a Season 3?
Keeping a track of the popularity of the show and the love given to it by the fans and audience, it is very highly expected that Kono Oto Tomare will be renewed for a Season 3. However, the creators and production team have not officially announced Kono Oto Tomare Season 3.
But enough source material is left for the show to be continued and for the fans to see what will in the journey of the Club members throughout the competition. For two years, no such update or news has been released. But if there is a Kono Oto Tomare Season 3 on the makers mind, and we know that it is, we could expect it any time soon.
The reason everyone is looking forward to Kono Oto Tomare Season 3 is because the manga is still in work and the manga till now has not been fully covered by the two seasons. Thus, there are big chances that there will be a Third Season for Kono Oto Tomare.
