    Accurate and great animation!
    As an instrumentalist, I have to say this is one of the first where all the animations for the instruments are accurate! The fluidity of the animation and the quality behind all of the sound and characters is terrific. Love this series!

    such attention to detail
    I really enjoy this anime, I was blow away with the attention to detail they go through to animate the musicians. Even take the time to video record live performances and then animate based on real performances just shows how much attention to detail they are striving for. I love the story line as well.

    Favorite Music Anime
    This anime is by far one of my favorites. Although I was really not really appealed by it at first, after watching the first episode I was hooked. However I was a bit disappointed that their was no saxophone player in the group. Come on now whats's a Jazz band without a saxophone. Aside from that though I definitely recommend others to watch this.

    My New Favorite Anime
    I was very skeptical about watching this series when I first saw it a few weeks ago on CR. I thought it was interesting, especially after seeing the trailers, but put it in the back of my mind. I finally started watching it a few nights ago because the title still stuck to me, and I loved it and am still loving it.

    The story follows a transfer student (Kaoru) who unwillingly befriends a "rough ...

    At first, meh. At second, Oh my!
    I could bore you with the characters, with the plot and the context there of, but "Kids on the Slope" shines where many anime have fallen before and that is substance. More have action, more have character development, others have excitement in it's one episode, but this show has once again (a term i have used before) more soul than all of them. Even the first fifteen minutes i was wondering the ...

  • Actually really good
    So, I really like this show. I like the characters, I love the music, and the animation is astoundingly detailed (especially the jam sessions). The only thing I don't like is it gets so darn angsty.

    Oh well, jazz makes it better. Jazz makes everything better.

  • Where I Found My Favorite Anime Scene
    Existence of a superior drummer within fiction is exceedingly improbable as "Kids on the Slope" presents one whose expertise exclusively perpetuates enthusiasm among viewers with musical interests. Aside from skillful demonstrations of musicianship, its romantic developments remain slightly inferior to strenuous tensions in friendships shown throughout.

    Little occurs beyond scenarios previously ...

  • Great music, art, story, etc
    I don't know how I didn't find this anime until now, but nevertheless I was super impressed! The story works, the art is great and the animation superb, and the characters are totally convincing! I loved the music and really connected with the series as a whole. I am sad that it is over and I can't watch any more
