They both revolve around forming a school club based off of traditional japanese activities with a relatively similar cast of characters that strive to work together to improve their craft. Kono Oto Tomare focuses on traditional koto music while Chihayafuru concentrates on competitive karuta. Their feel and atmosphere are fairly similar. From the animation, colors, tone and character interactions.

Think about Your Lie In April (Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso)x Chihayafuru? You've got Kono Oto Tomare! This is a cross between Shigatsu's musical-ish teenage drama and Chihayafuru's traditional Japanese school club, and of course, romance! This one doesn't have any dragged triangle love, though!
