  • WOW. this one blew my mind.
    Very simplistic story telling. Just about some high school kids in a small secluded town going through life and playing jazz music. Sounds boring I know but truly a well written anime. This has to be one of the best ones I've watched recently if only because it didn't succumb to the stereotypical character designs and story twists we see a lot in slice of life animes. As someone mentioned in one ...

  • Definitely my favorite anime!
    It's really hard for me to really love an anime but Kids on the Slope is just perfection.

    The characters are "realistic" and gets good development. I don't think there was a single character I didn't like in this anime. They were all interesting in their own ways. Brother Jun was my favorite to be honest. You really get attached to them throughout the series which is why it makes it my ...

    A Refreshingly Sweet Anime
    Kids on the Slope kept me very entertained through the length of the 12 episodes. The soundtrack is also filled with really enjoyable jazz. The characters are very lovable and I was attached to them by the third episode. These sweet characters have surprising growth for such a short anime. Watch it, you won't likely regret it.

    Best Slice of Life Ever

    Unlike love, friendship is for life.

    I absolutely loved this series. It was a heart-warming, tear-jerking knock-out. The characters and story were all great. AND THAT MUSIC!! It was out of this world. Also, it had the right amount of bromance, but still kept you cheering for the girls. I love how Kaoru and Sen brought the best out of each other, and even when ...

  • Beautiful, Jazzy Coming of Age Story
    If you like anime, or jazz, or the 1960s, or good stories: Watch this show.

    Beautiful slice-of-life, with a gorgeous emphasis on the love of (specifically jazz) music. Come for the music, stay for the feels.

    Great story up until the last episode and then a let down
    I enjoyed the storyline, characters, their growth and relationships with each other, but at the end I felt the lack of any resolution ruined the show. The music is good although I wish they paid tribute to more artists. I would recommend a watch tho.

  • I Simply Loved This Anime
    I got majorly hooked to this anime, and watched it all in one day.
    Yep.
    I just loved it. The story was amazing, good character development, and the animation was fluid and smooth.
    This anime isn't really a kiddish one, I think it may be under Seinen, it goes very deep into the relationships of the characters and is a nice slice of life anime that deals with real life problems in a way.
    Check ...

  • Great music, Great animation, Loveable characters
    Well here goes my very first review...

    I found this anime a very enjoyable one.

    First impressions were very good. The characters were very easy to get attached to, the humour very good and the story began really well.

    What stood out the most to me was the music. I LOVE good jazz and the first piece, Moanin', is one of my faves.

    Another highlight for me was the animation. I thought is ...

    Second half of the series brings it down.
    Honestly, I'll keep this review short and sweet. I was disappointed with the second half of this series. Why oh why did it have to turn into a typical slice of life high school romance? More blues, less girl drama. I can find girl drama in 20 different series each anime season, we don't need any more of it's crappiness. Solid 3.5/5 for me.

    Since this is one of the better series on Crunchyroll ...
