Kono Oto Tomare or Sounds Of Life! or in English “Sounds Of Life!” is one of those anime where you either love it or hate it. The story is very straightforward and easy to follow and it has a simple problem-solution-type story. Personally, I loved both seasons and I really had a great time watching them. It would be great if there was a Sounds Of Life Season 3. It has a lot of different sub-stories and other winding narratives that are included in the story. But what makes Kono Oto Tomare so good? And is a Kono Oto Tomare Season 3 even possible? Keep reading this blog to find out about Kono Oto Tomare Sounds Of Life Season 3.
The arcs are great and we see a lot of tension, both sexual and agitated, between different characters and it really sets the stakes high from the beginning. We see an epic story from all the character’s points of view and it’s honestly one of my favourite series I’ve watched so far.
It was also incredibly memorable and I’ve watched both seasons twice! Before we talk about Kono Oto Tomare Sounds Of Life Season 3, let’s discuss the general narrative of Anime.
Naratif umum Kono Oto Tomare!
The main narrative of Kono Oto Tomare is pretty simple and it revolves around a group of Students and the Koto club they all join in the earlier episodes, run by Takezo Kurata.
Initially, Takezo is the only member of the Koto club for his school, as the other members, according to what we are shown, all graduate when they go on to pursue other educational opportunities.
Kelab itu akan ditutup, apabila Kurata sangat terkejut, seorang ahli baru menyertai, Chika Kudo. Kudo is seen by most of his classmates as “delinquent”, a term that seems to come up a lot in Japanese TV shows and anime. Maybe it’s because I’m from a more western background, but that phrase is one I hardly ever hear, but maybe that’s just me.
Anyway, Kudo and Takezo realise that if they don’t get more members, the club will be shut down by default. So, they try and get new people to join. One day they enter the practice room and a girl is sitting there.
Her name is Satowa Hozuki and it turns out that she is a very famous Koto player, she’s also the same age as Kudo dan Kurata. Dia meyakinkan mereka bahawa dia akan membawa mereka ke negara dengan kemahirannya sahaja.
A remark gets her fierce criticism from Kudo, kerana dia tidak faham bagaimana mereka boleh mencapai matlamat ini tanpa ahli tambahan lain dalam kelab mereka. Dalam episod pertama atau kedua, mereka bertemu dengan 3 lagi watak, Saneyasu Adachi, Kota Mizuhara dan Michitaka Sakai.
At first, they are reluctant to join the club but Hozuki uses her looks and charm to get them to join, staring directly at them and calling them handsome.
This prompts the 3 others to join the club and from this point on these are our new Koto club members. We focus mainly on Hozuki, Kurata and Kudo during the whole series of Sounds Of Life but the other characters I have just mentioned also get some screen time.
The group then proceed to try out for “nationals” and doesn’t succeed in their first attempt despite their best efforts. The story is really engaging in this type of way and it really did put depth into the characters.
That’s why I think the narrative is great and it really sets the stakes high for the ending of the first season. Hopefully, this will be the same in Sounds Of Life Season 3, we will have to just wait and see, or not.
The Koto Clubs’ intentions
The group keeps trying very hard to achieve qualifying for nationals and they carry on going throughout the series. Hozuki used to be close with her mother until a performance in which she played a different song from the one she was supposed to.
This performance that she gives is called “Tenkyu“, dan saya rasa terjemahan bahasa Inggeris ialah “Heavens Cry”. Kepentingan persembahan yang dia berikan ialah ia adalah satu cara untuk meluahkan kemarahan dan kesakitan yang dia alami ketika itu.
Hozuki describes it as “throwing a tantrum”. Unfortunately, her mother doesn’t see it that way and this gets her disqualified from the competition and excommunicated from the Koto school she attended at the time.
It’s revealed that this is the reason that she decides to join Kurata’s club, as she can take the club to nationals and win. She sees it as an opportunistic career move, one that will get her back in good standing with her mother and one that will restore her reputation.
These were Hozuki’s original intentions, but later on, in the first series, we see that she really likes playing the Koto with other people, and she makes friends with all of the other members of the club.
Her faith in the Koto and its abilities is restored and this is how the story progresses. They have another performance at the school they go to later in the second season, and this really gives them the motivation they need to qualify for nationals and try to win first place.
Ia benar-benar cerita yang hebat pada pendapat saya dan inilah sebabnya ramai orang mengharapkan musim kedua, walaupun musim lalu berakhir dengan muktamad. Mereka akan muncul dalam Kono Oto Tomare Sounds Of Life Musim 3. Kami akan membincangkannya kemudian, tetapi pertama, mari kita pergi ke watak-watak.
He loves playing the Koto and doesn’t seem to have any other hobbies, not that it’s a bad thing. He has quite an admirable character and there’s not really anything bad I can say about him.
Takezo juga merupakan watak yang cukup emosional dan kita melihat ini daripada interaksinya dengannya Kudo dan Hozuki, kedua-duanya membuatnya menangis kegembiraan pada satu ketika.
Secara keseluruhannya, dia adalah watak pertama yang hebat untuk bersimpati dan mendapat pelaburan, sama seperti Kudo dan Hozuki, ketiga-tiga ini dan yang paling kami minati. Jika ada Kono Oto Tomare Sounds Of Life Musim 3 maka Takezo akan muncul pasti.
Seterusnya, kita ada Chika Kudo, who is seen as a troublemaker and a bad influence by lots of people at the high school he attends.
His grandfather was a professional Koto maker and he was the one who motivated (after his death) Kudo to start playing the instrument properly.
Kudo mempunyai masa yang sukar untuk menangani kematian datuknya dan selepas dia meninggal dunia dia membuat janji peribadi kepada dirinya sendiri untuk mengejar prospek yang dilamarnya oleh Hozuki dan Takezo untuk pergi ke warganegara.
Dia seorang yang rajin seperti Kurata dan dia mengagumi permainan dan kemahiran Hozuki juga. Dia mungkin mempunyai perasaan romantik terhadap Hozuki tetapi ia tidak pernah benar-benar dikembangkan dalam anime, kami tidak pasti tentang manga. Kalau ada Kono Oto Tomare Sounds Of Life Season 3, dia akan muncul.
Much like her fellow Kelab Koto ahli yang dia laburkan untuk menjangkau warga Koto dan mahu melakukan ini supaya dia boleh bersatu semula dengan ibunya dan memulihkan reputasinya sebagai pemain profesional Koto.
Dia secara konvensional menarik dan mempunyai kemahiran yang menjadikannya kelihatan menawan dan baik untuk berada di sekelilingnya. Ia ditunjukkan dalam siri anime bahawa dia mungkin mempunyai minat romantis Kudo. Dia bertindak secara berbeza di sekelilingnya dan biasanya bergaduh dengannya, mengusiknya secara tetap.
Sometimes when the two are alone or with the other club members she normally acts shy and stumbles with her words, getting visibly nervous around him.
It’s obvious she has feelings for him and Kudo dan hubungan Hozuki berkembang seiring dengan perkembangan siri ini. Dia pastinya akan berada dalam Kono Oto Tomare Sounds Of Life Musim 3 yang berpotensi.
Sub-watak dalam Sounds Of Life bukanlah sub-watak pada pendapat saya. Setiap watak yang berbeza menawarkan kemahiran dan kegunaan mereka sendiri kepada kelab dan satu sama lain. Ini menjadikan setiap watak berharga dan ini bermakna kita sebenarnya boleh melabur dalam setiap satu. Sebagai contoh, dalam episod awal musim kedua, Adachi mula berfikir bahawa kemahirannya tidak diperlukan dalam kelab, kerana dia terus merosakkan dalam latihan.
Walau bagaimanapun, Encik Takinami memberitahu Adachi bahawa dia sangat penting kepada kelab dan ahli lain. Takinami reveals the reason for this is that his sound harmonises with all the other sounds, so he can link them all together when they play in unison. If Kono Oto Tomare Season 3 becomes a reality, then we can be sure to see these characters again.
Saya tidak pernah berminat dengan instrumen apatah lagi instrumen tradisional Jepun seperti Koto. Walau bagaimanapun, Sounds Of Life benar-benar membuatkan saya tertarik dengan perkara jenis ini. Saya tidak akan mempunyai keberanian untuk memainkan alat di hadapan ratusan orang secara serentak dengan orang lain.
Kono Oto Tomare Sounds Of Life season 3
Kono Oto Tomare really emphasises this and it shows what Japanese students like the members of the Koto club go through. All the characters in Kono Oto Tomare were memorable, and they all had different skills to offer. Here are some of the ones I liked the most, ranked from the top (most favourite) to bottom (least favourite).
Memahami plot akhir
Understanding the end plot is always important when deciding whether or not a new season for a particular anime series is necessary or possible. This applies to most anime, including Kono Oto Tomare.
The end plot of Kono Oto Tomare is quite amazing in my opinion. It also solved a lot of problems that had arisen during the first season. Almost all of these problems and arcs were solved/ended.
We see Hozuki reunited with her mother after they had fallen out, Kudo and Kurata and the rest of the Koto club achieve their goal of going to nationals. During episodes 11 and 12 we get to see the performances of the other schools that we had seen in the first season. We got to see how the other schools had improved and grown from their individual experiences as opposed to seeing Tokise’s students’ reactions and improvement.
Some may argue that this is a cheap way of enforcing character depth as they kind of do it at the last minute, while not showing it during the time that these events were actually occurring. Nevertheless, these little scenes did do a very good job of making you sympathise with the other characters in the other school, as now you could feel for them in this kind of way.
I don’t really agree with how they did it, but it did make each performance that the different schools did a lot more interesting and engaging. This is because I knew what was on the line for each school and particularly what they had gone through prior.
Hozuki bertemu semula + Kudo berbincang dengan ibu Hozuki
Kita lihat Hozuki reunited with her mother. The two made up and were finally in each-others arms, despite Hozuki’s mother’s general dislike when she disowned her daughter. The two are reunited in Episode 13 and it’s quite an emotional scene to watch with the two cryings openly in front of everyone.
It’s what we’ve been waiting for, and it solves the first main problem. Kudo meets Hozuki’s mother and the two exchange some compliments on each other. This is something I was not expecting and I didn’t remember it the first time I watched Kono Oto Tomare.
Dōjima & Takinami
Kita lihat Miss Dojima and Encik Takinami satisfied with the performance that Tokise gives. These two have kind of been the main driving force behind the club’s success, offering their assistance and guidance to all the club members in their time of need. It was nice to see those two satisfied with Tokise’s performance. Hopefully, if there is a Sounds Of Life Season 3 we will see them again.
The main problem that’s solved is the question of whether or not Tokise will go to nationals, and we all know they do. The scene when they announce who is in the first place is also very moving, as it’s what we’ve been wanting for the whole series.
It’s much deserved and it really does make you feel good. It’s a great way end to an epic story. Kudo and basically all the other club members start crying with joy when they realise they’ve won.
Kawan lama Kurata
Kami melihat salah seorang rakan kelab Koto lama Kurata Mashiro return and watch their entire performance. She thanks Kurata and says how great she thought his performance was. It’s another problem that is solved and we get to see the two exchanging compliments.

Pengakuan kepada Cik Dōjima
We also see all the Koto club members thank Miss Dojima for her assistance to them when she would help them practise. Miss Dojima is a pretty well-written character in my opinion and her arc was very well done. We see her brother return to see their performance.
The two are kind of reunited after they stop seeing each other, but I’m not really sure what their relationship is. Since her brother stops playing the Koto and she very much disagrees with this. But it’s nice to see them together again. It is likely that this character will reappear in Sounds Of Life Season 3.
Hubungan yang tidak berkembang
There was a lot of sexual tension between the two, but unfortunately we never really got to see what happened between the two. Maybe this was expanded upon in the manga, however, I didn’t read it so I don’t know.
Kelab Tokise Koto
Akhirnya, kami melihat kelab Koto pergi ke peringkat kebangsaan, mengucapkan tahniah oleh sekolah lain yang baru sahaja mereka lawan. Kami juga mendapat adegan pelik seperti ini pada penghujungnya dengan Kudo, yang saya tidak dapat memahaminya. Jika sesiapa tahu apa yang saya maksudkan, atau apa yang sepatutnya dilambangkan, sila komen di bawah.
Kami juga mendapat satu adegan terakhir selepas kredit kelab Koto memulakan latihan untuk karya baharu mereka. Ia adalah pengakhiran yang hebat dan ia menunjukkan belas kasihan yang dimiliki setiap pelajar terhadap satu sama lain. Sejujurnya ia merupakan pengakhiran yang hebat dan cukup konklusif untuk sebuah cerita yang hebat pada pendapat saya dan ia pastinya salah satu anime yang paling saya gemari.
Adakah Kono Oto Tomare Musim 3 Mungkin?
Well, if you want to know if Sounds Of Life Season 3 is going to happen, or is just another Anime pipe dream, then take a look below at some of the points we’ve listed to give you an idea of whether this Anime will return for a 3rd season.
Tamatkan adegan kredit
First, we have to realise the ending of Musim 2, which was pretty conclusive in my opinion. If you watched the scene after the credits though you will know that this scene did lead something on. They were making mistakes and expressing their overall feelings about the new piece they had been given.
This is a nostalgia (if you will) play on the earlier episodes from Season 1 when the club members would frequently mess up. Although during that time there was a lot more on the line since they had to do a lot of practice in a short amount of time.
Adakah terdapat ruang untuk pengembangan?
Most people would say that’s probably where the story comes to an end, but does it have to? Think about it, the ending scene right at the end of Episode 13 was pretty self-explanatory, the Koto club are now going to begin their journey to nationals.
So surely the story can still be expanded upon. As we understand it, the original writer of the manga, Amyu, has written more chapters of Kono Oto Tomare. So there is still an expansion of the story as we understand it and you can read about it laman web ini.
Baru kandungan manga untuk Kono Oto Tomare has been written and we would expect it to be expanded upon in future episodes. We would also like to stress that the time that the two seasons were released was extremely short (less than a year). That’s very short for a new season and it testifies to the status of Kono Oto Tomare.
The success of both seasons
The 2 seasons of the anime of Kono Oto Tomare were very successful and it sold extremely well, it was licensed to Funimation and they quickly produced a dubbed season, and later a dubbed season 2.
This shows that both seasons and Kono Oto Tomare as a whole are very worthwhile in terms of production. We would expect that a new season would be very worthwhile for the production company in charge of Kono Oto Tomare.
Pengakhiran Kono Oto Tomare!
As far as seeing if the ending of Kono Oto Tomare was conclusive or not, we can not say for certain. On one hand, we saw most of the problems that arose from Season 1 solved and we also saw that the arcs that had mostly started in Season 1 had ended by the end of Season 2. On the other hand, we saw in the end scene after the credits that the whole Koto club were beginning their practice for nationals.
This was pretty leading, and we could say for sure that the ending of Kono Oto Tomare (the anime ending) wasn’t very conclusive. So, could this lead the way for a Kono Oto Tomare Sounds Of Life Season 3?
Since there has been more manga content written then there is always a way that the story can continue and show the Tokise Highschool Koto Clubs’ journey to nationals.
I really think that the story will be expanded upon even more and this will hopefully be done through the third anime adaption which will be Season 3. In my opinion, a Kono Oto Tomare Sounds Of Life Season 3 is entirely possible and very likely given the success of the first and second seasons.
Bilakah Kono Oto Tomare Musim 3 Akan Disiarkan?
Untuk memahami Kono Oto Tomare Sounds Of Life Season 3, we need to estimate when would Kono Oto Tomare Sounds Of Life Season 3 would air. Below, I have gone over a number of different factors that have led me (and hopefully you) to a conclusion about when will Kono Oto Tomare Sounds Of Life Season 3 released. So please, check them out below.
The time it took for a second season
Given the time it took for season 2 of Kono Oto Tomare to be produced, we would say that season 3 is not far away at all if it is being produced. We would say that there’s a season 3 being produced right now.
Season 2 of Kono Oto Tomare was aired in the same year (2019) as the first season. This was probably because the production company started production of the second season while the first season was still being made.
It’s only been a year since we last saw the second anime adaptation, so we wouldn’t say that a third season would be coming around anytime soon (this year). We would like to speculate that a season Kono Oto Tomare Sounds Of Life Season 3 would air around 2024.
We would like to say at the beginning, but during the spring or even summer of 2024 is more likely. If a second season doesn’t come around then we would have to say 2024, but this is pretty unlikely.
Hopefully, we will see Kono Oto Tomare Sounds Of Life Season 3 very soon but we don’t want to get everyone’s hopes up so soon. We do not want any of our readers to rely solely on our information. You should look up other sources and then make a calculated guess on this subject.
