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?

Firstly I want to thank user inzaratha for recommending "Kono Oto Tomare!" to those who are reading "Chihayafuru!". If not her, I might have missed this gem.

The story in this manga is great. Its premise is unoriginal, but the way it's being told and the pacing makes it highly enjoyable to read. It has some funny moments, some touching moments, and some sad and romantic moments. I've read 17 chapters at the moment and there wasn't a single one that didn't serve purpose or was boring in any way.
I give the story a 9.

One of the main strengths of "Kono Oto Tomare!" is the read more

Kono Oto Tomare! The strawberry cheesecake for my soul, the pudding of dreams for my ears...this Sound That Makes You Stop is hands down one of my manga favorites of all time. It's relaxing, hopeful and encouraging - and a total feast to read.

*This is a spoiler free preview*

The synopsis of the story doesn't give away much and the reason I first got interested was the fact that the series seemed to revolve around koto playing. I'm a big fan of Wagakki Band and especially their koto player Kiyoshi so I was curious to see what kind of story could be made out of playing read more

I'm surprised to see that there's not a single review for this manga, yet. Well, this will probably more of an opinion than a review, so I'm going to make it plain and simple.

The plot/story is very simple (8). A delinquent guy who actually has a soft heart especially for his friends and family, who joined a club in honour of the grandfather whom he adores so much.

This is more of a music genre. I was reluctant to read this at first because I don't exactly know what a Koto is, how it sounds like (it probably sound like a guitar or something), etc. But read more

Like many people stumbling upon Kono Oto Tomare!, I found this from the Chihayafuru page. And I've got to say I'm not disappointed.

What I notice first about manga is the art. And I am absolutely in love with Amyuu Sakura's art. It's cute, clean, and extremely detailed. I like how it isn't too flashy like Arina Tanemura's works (she's the mangaka of Full Moon Wo Sagashite). The characters look realistic yet still have that manga vibe to them. And--brownie points!--the guys look like guys and girls look like girls. So the art is really a ten out of ten for me.

But art is just read more
