Since the graduation of the senior members of the club, Takezou ends up being the sole member of the "Koto" (traditional Japanese string instrument) club. Now that the new school year has begun, Takezou will have to seek out new members into the club, or the club will become terminated. Out of nowhere, a new member barges into the near-abandoned club room, demanding to join the club. How will Takezou be able to keep his club alive and deal with this rascal of a new member?

Beautiful and heartwarming series that surprises us in each episode. Who will thought that we will have regular boy an deliquent and koto prodigy in one place and they will create a "space" that will reach us all? As much as story brings us enjoyment there is one thing that's most interesting and it's sound. Voice acting and instrument sounds are really nicely done here. I like art and I rated it high even if animations aren't top notch, at least this isn't a series when it's hard to recognize characters because they all look the same and act same.

This is the first anime I thought I needed to review it, super underrated in my opinion, I'm at episode 5 and already cried twice. To be honest, I get it, is an anime about playing Koto, a classic Japanese instrument, I always thought koto, kinda weird and stupid, and I wouldn't watch it if it wasn't recommended by a YouTuber that I watch, but they can make you emotional anyway, really great, looking toward watching everything, if my opinion changes I'll edit this review.

The story is great, the editing is great, the animation is Ok, nothing I wasn't expecting from a slice of life read more

First let me start by saying I love this anime because I love the manga. The manga is near and dear to my heart with such amazing character development and storylines and it does not fail to give great art as well. As for the anime, I believe that it holds up to the standards the manga has set up. After only having watched five episodes so far I can tell that its going to be great. I will be updating this review once there are more episodes to compare to, I just felt compelled to write a review since this anime deserves read more

Watch this show!

Why? (No spoilers)

It has heart. Considering the love and hard work that went in producing these episodes and the love the manga has received from fans it's no wonder the second cour of the show is already planned.

The direction is great. The atmosphere ranges from funny to ominous as the context of the scenes ask for. Are the characters and situations clichéd? After meeting similar people in similar situations behave in similar fashion will you consider their existence a trope or a reality? Your answer to those questions will provide the lens through which you view the story and characters.

The characters are read more
