Gen Kudou, a master craftsman of the traditional koto instrument, finds it hard to believe that his wayward grandson, Chika, could ever appreciate the profound beauty of this timeless art form. Determined to bridge the gap and honor the memory of his departed grandfather, Chika embarks on a journey to join the prestigious Tokise High School Koto Club. Despite the club's desperate need for new members, the stern and disciplined club president, Takezou Kurata, initially hesitates to accept Chika's application, given his notorious reputation. However, captivated by Chika's unwavering dedication and infectious passion, Takezou relents, granting the troubled youth a coveted spot alongside the brilliant koto prodigy, Satowa Houzuki, and Chika's lively group of friends. Together, they form an extraordinary ensemble, united by the shared dream of competing on the grand stage of the national competition. Kono Oto Tomare! unravels the remarkable tale of these resolute musicians, as they navigate the challenges of rivalry, personal growth, and the pursuit of excellence. With each melodic note played, they strive to redefine their musical identities and deliver a soul-stirring performance that will resonate in the hearts of all who bear witness.
