    Glad I gave it a chance.
    This is hands-down the best anime of the Spring 2012 season. I wasn't all that eager to watch it at first glance and the first episode was so-so for me, but by the second episode I was hooked and I haven't been disappointed since.

    Although I enjoy much of the silly shounen stuff, it's wonderful shows like this with good characters and good storytelling (not to mention an excellent jazz ...

    Now that's what I'm talking
    Its been a long time since I watched an anime that drew me in so fast and hard without taking the usual emotional beating along the way. This is a true 5 star in my book. It would have been great if this was a 24+ episode instead of 12 with a better ending instead of dropping you off in the middle of nowhere 12 episodes later?

    Loss for words - Amazing!
    I don't typically write reviews, but man, this particular anime deserves one.

    It's a beautiful story about a group of teens trudging through awkward social interactions and coming to terms with what "love" actually means; with a hint of jazz. I cannot recommend this enough. There is just so much emotion packed neatly into 30 minute chunks, leaving you wanting more. Wished it never ended.

    This anime really hit a personal not with me and I love it.
    This anime is one of the best I've seen lately. I know it's already a few years old by this point and barely anybody's going to see my review, but here goes!

    Honestly, I fell in love with this anime by the end of episode 4. When it goes into the history of the characters and what their motivations are, I realized I have a lot in common with the main protagonist, as silly as it sounds. His ...

    Nothing but love for this anime.
    I have nothing but love for this anime. The well designed characters, environment and story make this one to remember and its music tone shows how small things bring unlikely people to meet. I recommend to anyone and everyone. This anime is amazing. <3 <3

    A classic look at jazz in Japan
    The musical scenes in this one would make this show worth a watch by themselves, but it's wrapped up in a poetic look at a friendship between talented musicians who struggle to keep their geniuses safe from the forces at play in their world. Lots of angles to analyse this one from, a pretty rich "text" that holds up to a repeat viewing!

    A Must See that is For Sure One of a Kind~
    This is simply a precious anime that is filled with friendship, love, pain, and an extremely satisfying conclusion. I will definently be reading the manga and if only this story could be endless. It made me laugh, cry, and cherish what I myself have loved, lost, and clung to. Again, this is a must see.

    Not Perfect, But a REALLY good show! [Spoiler?]
    My friend wanted me to watch this show about 2 months or so ago. At the time I was kinda going back and forth about whether or not I should watch this since I was still (And still am) recovering from what was "Your Lie in April".

    To be honest, I didn't think this would be a spectacular show. After watching the fourth episode however, I was hooked. Every single episode made me love it even more. ...

    Don't Sleep on This Anime Set in the 1960s
    This is a fantastic anime. It's beautifully done and the characters are easy to get attached to. Plus it's short enough to finish in a day (if you commit) while still being a fulfilling and well rounded story. Shinichiro Watanabe (Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo) has done it again with a great show. It will make you want to listen to jazz even if you've never really listened to it before. As ...

    A Feel-Good, Realistic Anime; Perfect for Binge-Watching!
    A friend mentioned this anime so I decided to have a wee peek at the first episode or two to see if it was worth a watch. Initially only intending to see a preview, I ended up watching right until the end of the series! I could not stop, no matter how hard I tried.

    Kids on the Slope (坂道のアポロン) is definitely up there on my list of favourite anime. Filled to the brim with excitement, ...
