After rewatching this show two times, I want to dedicate my first MAL review for Kono Oto Tomare! which in my opinion, is the most underrated and underappreciated anime that I have ever seen.

I will mainly focus on the first season but I will also touch on the second season a little bit because if the first season was great, the second one was just outstanding. Since I just rewatched both seasons, the rating might be slightly biased and apply to both the first and second season. Also, this is a general review and thus, can be considered spoiler-free.

Plot: 8/10

Do not judge an anime based only on the first episode. You could watch the first episode and thought that the flashbacks and backstory are all over the place, but trust me, it is essential for the character development which is the strong aspect of this anime. The plot is quite simple and straightforward. In short, it is about the Koto club which aimed for nationals while facing problems and difficult circumstances by each member. However, the simplicity of the plot allows the anime to highlight the other aspects of this anime such as solid characters, beautiful performances, and delightful visuals which I will explain more in the following paragraphs.

Music: 10/10

“A truly wonderful performance can go beyond experts and reach those who don’t know about Koto”.

I did not know anything about Koto before watching this anime nor did I play any instrument, but the music in this anime is just breathtaking, especially if we talk about the amazing performances. Each performance has its own meanings, values, and emotions which they want to convey to others. You cannot help but feel those emotions from each performance and this helps with understanding each character better (how did they lead their lives, what did they feel, what do they want to achieve, and what are they feeling) during the performances. The combination of the music with the visuals is enough to make you cry. It is just simply beautiful.

Characters: 10/10

Very, very solid characters. You could get overwhelmed at the beginning due to the constant flashbacks and backstories by some of the characters. However, once you get over it, it feels like you get closer to each of them and understand their motives and emotions. Personally, for me, being able to relate to characters is vital and it seems like this anime allows you to do that and as a result, it feels like you are together with them for the whole series. While the first season focuses on the character development of the few characters in the club, the second season brilliantly focuses mostly on Satowa which I assume is the most popular character in this series. The second season really does an incredible job in narrating her story to the point that you can understand her incredibly well.

Animation: 9/10

The animation might not be the best that you have ever seen, but it fits perfectly with the music, characters, and situations. I believe that the strongest point of this anime is the cohesion between music, visuals, and dialogues which forms a beautiful and emotional animation that warms your heart. For example, the visuals are always beautifully aligned with the music in the performances and this helps you to understand the emotions embedded into the music which is important to understand the characters in the series better. In other words, all aspects in this anime are interconnected with each other to create a beautiful anime.

Overall: 9.25/10

As I mentioned before, the first season is great but the second one is just amazing. More focused character development, better visuals, and also better performances. I genuinely believe that is a hidden gem and more people should watch this anime.

Thank you for reading my first ever MAL review and it will make me delighted if you are willing to consider this anime after reading this review. Cheers.
