  • At the Top of Its Class.. or Slope In This Case
    Loved how this anime progressed. The character development was top notch; you can't help but connect with even the side characters. The animation was brilliant, especially since the small town that acts as the environment is an actual place in Japan! The level of detail in comparison is nearly identical. There's a very unique and original feel to it, and I was happy to find there weren't any ...

    A Jazzy Tale About Life

    Kids on the Slope 「坂道のアポロン」 is quite a remarkable piece. 9/10, would slope again. ミ☆ The creator Watanabe continues to impress me with his works. This one in particular is an emotional roller-coaster.

    Plot
    It starts off with rich boy Kaoru who is a very introverted person and has a hard time making friends. When he moves to Kyushu, he meets Sentaro, who is a troublemaker and

    Great romance anime, wished it was longer though.
    I thoroughly enjoyed this romance anime. It had a unique storyline. I thought this anime would be predictable just like every other romance anime but it wasn't.. so it sets itself aside from other romance anime I've seen so far. The art is nice and simple; and the music is something that has not been used in anime.. Jazz!! Very cool and relaxed.

    It was a nice story overall. The ending got me ...

    Incredible show with an underwhelming ending.
    This really was good anime. I enjoyed the music, the art, the incredible character development, and the very well-done drama throughout. For those who are unacquainted with Jazz as a music genre, this anime is even pretty educational. Oh, and WHO could forget that the director/composer duo is the same as in Cowboy Bebop, so it has an incredible score from the start. The only thing I really hated ...

  • You must watch. Amazin
    The music, the characters the plot are all amazing. While the time skips are annoying at times everything else makes up for it. Ever single character develops and becomes their own person.

  • This Series has it all
    Comedy, drama, romance, camaraderie, and the best soundtrack I've ever heard. You will laugh and cry with this series. This is a very music heavy series (jazz) and if you're anything like me, it will make you want to give jazz a chance. I've been listening to Art Blakey for weeks since I've finished this series.

    First series I watched on Crunchyroll -
    Characters, style, story, music, all top notch. It falls apart a bit at the very end but I usually have a problem with endings so maybe it's just me? Regardless, worth a watch for sure. I'd love to find more along the lines of this series to watch!

    Unique, Beautiful... And maybe not for everyone
    Before saying anything else, it must be mentioned that the music and animation are both TOP NOTCH. If you fancy yourself a fan of music, Kids on the Slope delivers some amazing musical selections (episode 7 was by far my favorite arrangement, but they are all fantastic). And I was immediately blown away by the crisp and clean animation!

    My personal critique on this anime is the ...

    Friendship forever!!
    Watched this anime after I found it on a list of mature anime on crunchyroll. I like kawaii girls and fan service as much as the next person but sometimes it's nice to take a break. Kids on the Slope does not disappoint. For fans of drama, 60s, or jazz, this show will be a must see but even if you aren't particularly into the themes you will be after watching this series.

  • Perfection at it's Best.
    I myself have seen several different Anime's but none of them seem to stand out as good as Kids on the Slope did. Kids on the Slope was definitely a new take on Anime for me. Most of the Anime's I have seen usually have typical characters such as the Busty/Clumsy girl in it. But with "Kids on the Slope." they always had a fresh new twist incorporated within it. The setting in this Anime was ...
