The Final Sound

Kono Oto Tomare! Episode 13

Apparently there’s more of this coming at a later time, but for me, this is the final episode I’ll watch (I do reserve the right to change my mind in a few months but for now I’m over it). The injured hand drama gets stretched the duration of the entire first half until they all decide to play anyway (half of them unknowing about the injury). We then get the crisis when they realise Chika’s not playing the way he usually does before they all come together and finish the song amazingly well.

No idea how they actually did or what happened next, or even whether Chika actually went and got medical treatment given his hand turned purple, but apparently that’s not as important as finding a sound that makes us all feel like we belong so that we can leap into pink mist with a big smile on our face.

Okay, apparently I wasn’t emotionally invested in the contrived issues to really get pulled along with this one and ultimately I found myself just waiting for it to end. I didn’t mind the performance as it really was the first time we heard the whole group really performing together, but trying to layer over the teacher’s back story and melodrama, which I wasn’t interested in, while each of the characters were going through mental acrobatics as the performance went on just didn’t draw me in.

While for those who are a little more swept away by the story so far, this performance might seem like the perfect finale, for me it was much like the rest of Kono Oto Tomare; that is to say, it was a mixed bag to be sure.
