    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. ...

    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, ...

    Two words...well there is more but two important words
    -The Feels-
    **may contain spoilers**
    It was so wonderful, it'll have you grinning for the most part and then some sappy crying parts and the end is kind of a let down...considering the genre is romance. Realistically this anime isn't about the romance, its more about the relationship between the two guys...again just the feels! Just a heads up though, don't plan to just watch one or two...your ...

    Damn. And now I appreciate Jazz Music? win-win.
    I'm the type of guy who is into the death note, one piece, full metal alchemist (brotherhood, of course) type of violent, action packed, suspenseful anime that gets the heart going. Of course I have a more refined palate than that, but more often than not my favorites are the ones that make you put on your best stank face and say "Damn, that was viscous." This series is not that.

    I started this ...

    Kids on the Slope; Jazz to my Ears.
    I'll start off with saying I'm a music lover. No, I'm not one of those angtsy teens who learned how to play guitar in high school and now think they can have a music career and travel around because they just love music (Which happens to consist of Corporate Auto-tuned Top-10 Pop Songs).

    I love actual music. I love Celtic Tin-Flutes to Gospel Organ Music (I'm not actually a ...

    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 ...

    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 ...
