All the members of the Koto club, except Takezo Kurata, who’s in his second year, have graduated, making them out (ex-members) of the club.

The main characters of Kono Oto Tomare (and the possible main characters of Kono Oto Tomare Season 3….that is, if it happens……XD…fingers crossed, stay hopeful!!)
Chika Kudo: Kudo (voiced by Yuki Ono) is portrayed to have a bad reputation at first. He did not have many friends before joining the club and had the image of a delinquent. He has a change in his personality from the influence of his grandfather and develops an interest in Koto.
Kudo is a good-hearted human being, who chooses to be very straightforward with his words, however, he has trouble expressing himself and understanding others. He gets shy when thanked by his friends.
Kudo has a natural talent for quick learning. He demonstrated the ability to play something right after watching someone else play it a few times. Though he did not have much idea about Koto before joining the club, it did not take him much time to learn to play because of his ability to learn things quickly.
He makes reaching the level of Satowa, a fellow member of his club who is a genius at playing koto, his goal and also chooses her to be his rival.
Satowa Hozuki: Satowa (voiced by Atsumi Tanezaki) a fellow member, is like the master of the Koto club as she is a genius and already very professional at playing Koto (can play almost any kind of koto) unlike the other members of the club.
Satowa is a hard-working person and likes to understand the meaning of a song before playing it. Satowa is also the type of person who chooses to conceal her feelings rather than reveal them.
In the beginning, she was portrayed to have a condescending and arrogant personality but soon that side of her had chilled down. She helps the other members of the club in their learning. However, she believes that teaching is not her kind of thing. Playing Koto comes very naturally to her and thus she faces difficulty in explaining things and correcting them.
Later on, she was being taught by Doujima and hence her teacher role was toned down.
Satowa tries to reconnect with her mother through her music. Fails at first, but is acknowledged later, and is put back as the heir of the Hozuki group, after her mother watches her perform at the National preliminaries.
Takezo Kurata: Takezo (voiced by Junya Enoki) is a second-year and president of the Koto club. Despite being relatively new to the club he handles his duties pretty well.
At first, he lacked confidence and was stressed from the pressure of being a president however, that side of his personality did not last very long and it did not take him much time to level up to portray a very diligent leader.
Takezo is a serious and very reliable person by nature. After the previous members of the club had graduated, he was the only one left and did his best to protect the club from being shut down.
Hiro Kurusu: Kurusu (voiced by Sara Matsumoto) is also a second-year and is the vice president of the club. She is in the same class as Takezo.
Kurusu wishes to join the Koto club after watching them perform at the morning assembly. Her application is accepted by Tazeko and was soon introduced to the club. She chooses to relieve Tazeko of his heavy burden of being a president and takes the role of being a vice president of the club.
Tatsuki Takaoka: Takaoka (voiced by Yoshimasa Hosoya) is Kudo’s safe place and his closest friend and was the only friend of Kudo before they joined the club.
Takaoka is determined and is smart at his studies, is a good cook and a pretty good fighter as well. Knowing him for a long time, he understands Kudo very well and is the one who assured Takezo, when he was concerned about Kudo, a delinquent, joining the club. When exams approached them. Takaoka would help his club members with their studies
