  • Wow...Very Unique Feels like an Understatement
    Most slice of life animes make you feel like your iq has to drop in order to enjoy it.
    This anime.... wow. It does the exact opposite.

    It looked like it was going to be a ho hum type of anime, but this anime just blows my mind.
    I love the humor in it, it feels like you're in on a secret. I LOVE the ending!
    Some people may like it more than others, though.
    The entire show feels very ...

    Hooks You With Tunes, Then Drama
    I enjoyed the sound track to this show quite a bit, and the premise of jazz pulling these kids together certainly lends itself to exploring a fair few number of tunes. At the same time, don't go in expecting to be truly acquainted with the genre of music if you aren't familiar with it already - this show very much provides a sip, not a thirst quenching fill.

    Part of the reason for that is it ...

    Inspiring, but leaving me wanting so much more.
    I had my doubts before watching this anime, but once I started I couldn't stop. I power played through the series because it is just that good! Anyone who has any affection for the jazz genre of music will find this entertaining. The historical backdrop that the anime takes place in is rich to say the least and delivers a nostalgic punch to the viewer. After finishing the series I instantly felt ...

    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 ...

    From a musician's View
    I was nothing more than a rock guitarist at the time I watched this series. Two years later, I find myself looking into their direction of music while keeping that rock and roll sound. Nevertheless, this is a great anime. I'm going to watch it again.

  • Wonderful and touching series
    This series warms my heart, I truly enjoyed it and wish there was more. Great music and true friendship. I cried often throughout the series and I enjoyed all of the character and the storyline. Why can't we see this type of stuff on regular TV shows?

    A True Slice Of Life...From Start To Finish
    Kids on the Slope demonstrates to viewers just what a Slice of Life is really about. Nothing in this show feels forced. The characters and events just simply flow along like the jazz they all love so much.

    Just as there are chords and notes in jazz that seem off and rough at times, so too are the lives of Kaoru and Sentaro when they have to deal with their love and friendship relationships. ...

  • Have supplies before you start
    Once you start down the slope its hard to stop. But entirely worth it. One of the best anime on CR. Be prepared to marathon this, even if you don't mean to.

    The music gets into your head and your heart and won't let go. I've got to see if there is an OST for sale somewhere. Enjoy.

    Absolutely beautiful
    I don't even remember how I came across this anime but as a fan of Music based animes I added it to my qeue. On a whim I decided to watch the first episode and see how I felt. I finished it in one sitting. I loved every episode. I cried a lot. *****

  • Stunning Music Anime
    One of my top 25 anime somewhat simple but very powerful and immersive. From early on you develop a connection to the characters and once they start working together and getting to know each other it becomes amazing. What happens when you see what trails they pull through and how the characters evolve is wonderful. After watching and even during I've grown a fondness for Jazz which I didn't ...
