Uchida also voices character Chika Kudō in April anime

The official website for the television anime of Amyū's Kono Oto Tomare! (Stop This Sound!) manga revealed on Thursday that Yūma Uchida will perform the anime's ending song "Speechless." Uchida also voices the character Chika Kudō in the anime.

The anime will air for two cours or two quarters of a year. The series will air the first half in April, and the second half will premiere in October.

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.

Shouta Aoi will also perform the anime's opening theme song "Tone."

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. Shueisha shipped the manga's 19th volume last December. The manga has more than 2.5 million copes in print.
