    Going Uphill, not so bad...Jazz on the other hand
    Kids on the Slope is a short series, being a single season in length. What brought me to this were the credentials at first. Shinichiro Watanabe direction with Yoko Kanno composing the musical score. While I'm not to sure exactly what kind of studio MAPPA is, it only brought my attention even further realizing that besides MAPPA animating, but also Tezuka Productions. As a fan of Osamu Tezuka, ...

    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

    A Great Story, Ok Ending
    This is a story that grabbed my attention quickly. A story full of excitement, fun, and love. Anyone who loves jazz or a slice of life story, this is a must watch. Kids on The Slope presents it's self just perfectly in it's first episode with amazing animation and music. However as the episodes move on, we get fewer scenes with music and more drama. Which is not a bad thing considering it's a 12 ...

    Easily one of the best anime on crunchyroll!!
    I usually don't give reviews for the anime I watch, but after watching this I felt I had to write something. This anime is something that I will remember for many many years. I don't really want to give away anything about this story because it's really original and believable! If you are wanting to watch something that will make you smile and relax this is the anime for you.

    A Fantastic Coming of Age Series and a Must Watch!
    As a fan of Watanabe's previous works, such as Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo, I'm almost ashamed to say that I was not aware that this series even existed (or the manga)! It wasn't until my girlfriend and I saw Shinichirō Watanabe at a panel at Otakon last month in which he spoke briefly about it that we heard of Kids on the Slope for the first time.

    Talk about timing! I just set up an ...

    Perfection at its 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 ...

    Amazing show with so many feels!
    I will be honest, I didn't go into this anime with high expectations but I came out of it thinking it was one of the best anime's I have seen in a long time.

    Kids on the Slope puts together music, romance, drama and school life all at once and this combination was just amazing. The major musical focus is Jazz and I'll admit I am not really a Jazz fan but still this anime amazed me and the music ...

    Totally underrated Anime!
    One of the best bromances I have ever seen, a twist in plot all the time within each characters epilogue, I hate no characters in this series which is rare at all. Character development is one of the best I have seen in all my years of watching Anime. The last Anime I have seen to do this (On a short series) is Clannad and Key works. I definitely recommend it as its the most down to Earth series I ...

    Hope this becomes a Classic.
    It's been a while since I watched a slice-of-life genre that was worth watching all the way through. This show is about timeless friendship between a small group jazz enthusiasts.

    The authors/writers got everything right. Characters, setting, plot are all very well executed. And the animation isn't half bad. But this is the best bromance I've seen that couldn't easily be turned into vaguely ...

    Great retrospect, beautiful bromance/friendship, and jazz!
    I was motivated to watch this after I saw a tumblr post with a Sakamichi no Apollon gif. It was Kaoru writing music notes onto staff paper. Being the band geek I am, I found the anime quickly and started watching. It's a story between three main characters and focuses on romance, friendship, jazz, and life. These teenagers aren't perfect and all have their little issues with their life, whether ...
