    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 ...

    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.

    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. *****

    If Cowboy Bebop is a masterpiece, what do we call this?
    Where can I even begin to describe this show? Well, this is Shinichiro Watanabe's most recent work. In my opinion, it is his best. Why? The show lets Watanabe do what he loves the most: let the characters be the stars of the show. Most of his work (Cowboy Bebop, Macross Plus, etc.) revolves more around the characters interacting before that is interrupted by the plot. Kids on the Slope has those ...

    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 ...

    Gorgeous story, animation, and music - watch it!
    A fantastic slice-of-life story set against a backdrop of Jazz and changing times. Good character studies as well as common themes.

    I absolutely loved this one and highly recommend it, even if this is not your usual style. Well worth the watch!

    Refreshing and endearing
    After taking a three year hiatus from anime, I have found it difficult at times to watch new shows and truly enjoy them. Perhaps my growing love for innovative, abstract cinematic masterpieces and classic literature has naturally made me set the bar high. As an English major, I have found myself expecting nothing more than stories with strong character development and a well-crafted plot.
    So ...
