  • Absolutely wonderful
    One of the best bits of media I've spent my time with. Inspiring, touching, heartbreaking. I get choked up at lots of stuff, but this is one of the very very few things that actually caused me to shed a tear. Thematically it touches on so many different things it would be pointless to go into it here. Artistically it's stunning, and has left me wondering exactly how they animated the music ...

  • This brought me back into anime
    It had been at least 6-7years since I watched a proper anime, and when I read about this on another site I decided to take a chance on it. I was not disappointed. Story, setting, and of course the music were all great! Must see!

  • Beautiful and Inspiring!
    This was simply beautiful and the tale of true friendship. Throw in a bit of romance and music from an epic era and you've created a masterpiece. This is definitely going on my favorites list. I recommend it.

  • Kids on the slope / my coming of age
    As I approach my last year in school I find my-self questioning what I want to become in this world and what I'll leave (deep I know but don't worry its not all this depressing). Kids on the slope is a an anime that in my opinion comes round very rarely and is scarcely appreciated for what it is, a great, realistic look at a random life somewhere. I like these types of animes as they make me ...

  • Incredibly Wonderful
    I've been a fan of jazz music. Kids on the Slope increases my adoration for jazz.

    The music. The music! THE MUSIC! It is absolutely wonderful! That's to be expected when you've got Yoko Kanno working on it. There was a smile on my face every time the character would jam.

    Kids on the Slope is one of the most realistic animes I've seen. The story is easy to follow. The characters suck you ...

  • Amazing. Just amazing.
    The voice acting is top notch, the opening theme addicting, and the animation is stunning. I've never been a fan of jazz music, but this series captured not just the sound, but the feel of the music and the era. The characters were relatable and real.

  • A truly well done anime
    I was a huge fan of Cowboy Bebeop. When I heard that the Director and Composer from Cowboy Bebop would be collaborating on an anime about Jazz Music, I was very excited.

    Kids on the Slope completely surpassed all expectations. It has a beautifully written story line, a cast of well developed characters, some beautiful animation, and some of the greatest music you can find in anime. ...

  • One of the absolute best, to be sure.
    In every sense of that expression. From the music to the detail put into the animation (it resembles watercolors) and intricacies of the characters, this masterpiece is bound to captivate you. It's sure moving me.
