The staff for the television anime adaptation of Amyū's Kono Oto Tomare! (Stop This Sound!) manga revealed the character visuals for the show's three main cast members on Friday, as well as a visual for the show.
The anime stars:
Yūma Uchida as Chika Kudō
Junya Enoki as Takezō Kurata
Atsumi Tanezaki as Satowa Hōzuki
The anime will premiere in April 2019.
Ryōma Mizuno is serving as the series director at Platinum Vision (Saiyuki Reload Blast, Servamp, Devils' Line). Ayumu Hisao (Devils' Line, Sword Oratoria: Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? On the Side) is both writing and overseeing the scripts, Junko Yamanaka (ReLIFE, Servamp) is the character designer, and Toshimitsu Kobayashi (Spice and Wolf II, Aoharu x Machinegun) is the sub-character designer. Yamanaka and Kobayashi are also both serving as chief animation directors, and Hideaki Oba is the adviser.
In the story, Takezō is the last remaining member of the koto club, a club dedicated to the traditional Japanese string instrument. If he doesn't find new members, the koto club will be terminated. One day, Takezō is alone in the club room when a student barges in and demands to join. The student is delinquent Chika Kudō, a boy who even scares delinquent upperclassmen at other schools.
Amyū launched the manga in Jump SQ. in August 2012, and the 18th compiled volume shipped on August 3. The manga has more than 2.5 million copes in print.
