    READ the manga after watching the series!
    This is my first review so bear with me. I usually just stick to a few annime shows (Bleach, Naruto, Evangelion) and dont really like to "try" new ones, mainly cause ill watch a few epsodes and not like them. The few annime shows I have actually watched through left me with a feeling of time wasted or no feeling at all. Fast foward to this show. Boy am I glad I "tried" this one out! After the ...

    Everyone's teenage years ensconced in one concise anime
    With Watanabe Shinichirô at the helm and Kanno Yôko on music, it is already apparent that a true gem is in the works. Indeed the masters behind 坂道のアッポロン「Sakamichi no Apollon」do not disappoint as they craft a tale about friendship, alienation, and acceptance. The latter, I believe, underlies the series central theme. Incidentally, all three of the main characters (Sentaro, Kaoru, and ...

    A grasping and captivating story of the friendships that we all have experienced in some way shape or form throughout our lives.
    This series touches one's soul in a way that anime series rarely do. Heartwrenching at times, and heartwarming at other times, this series portrays what we all have gone through, are going through, or will go through.

    Personally, this series brings me back to my teenage years. It brings back all those fleeting memories of chasing after that one girl, of the desperation in finding myself, and ...

    so impossibly hooked!
    the music! the character development! the euphoria!!!!
    i will CRY when this is over.

    like "Genshiken," the everyday-life feel of this series is so ordinary that it's extraordinary in its delivery. i can't get over how stunningly simplistic and rich it is!

    One of the finest shows ever
    Ok, why do I think this show is one of the finest ever?

    Its storyline. It is a very realistic story, no monsters, demons, giant robots destroying the world.

    It's about friendship, dating and the troubles that come along with life. What is really wonderful is that is is exciting to watch and you always want to see the next ep. (In other words, the writers have made you care about what ...

    Anime of the Summer!
    Upon my first encounter with this anime I was instantly drawn in. The ambiance and mood of the story centers solely around music, particularly the symphonic, expressive genre of jazz. With sessions produced by Yoko Kanno, a well known producer and composer known for her work in amines such as Cowboy Bebop and Darker Than Black, this coming-of-age story comes to life in this small town in ...

    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 ...

    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 ...
