  • 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 ...

  • Jazz, Friends, and Romance. What Else Do You Need?
    The perfect duo of Watanabe and Kanno does it again. Kids on the Slope is a fantastic anime that tells a heartfelt story between three friends who are drawn together by jazz. The story deals with themes such as heartbreak, growing up, and feeling out of place in the world and it is all beautiful.

    The animation is crisp, fluid, and gets near fantastic when the characters are playing their ...

  • Now I need another series to fill the void...
    Just did a marathon of this inadvertently. My first impressions from the first few episodes were that this was a good anime, but after so many series that either plateaued or became mediocre, there was no indication that it would just get better and even become one of my favourites. 10/10 GREAT ANIME

  • At the Top of Its Class.. or Slope In This Case
    Loved how this anime progressed. The character development was top notch; you can't help but connect with even the side characters. The animation was brilliant, especially since the small town that acts as the environment is an actual place in Japan! The level of detail in comparison is nearly identical. There's a very unique and original feel to it, and I was happy to find there weren't any ...

  • You must watch. Amazin
    The music, the characters the plot are all amazing. While the time skips are annoying at times everything else makes up for it. Ever single character develops and becomes their own person.

  • This Series has it all
    Comedy, drama, romance, camaraderie, and the best soundtrack I've ever heard. You will laugh and cry with this series. This is a very music heavy series (jazz) and if you're anything like me, it will make you want to give jazz a chance. I've been listening to Art Blakey for weeks since I've finished this series.

  • Kids on the Slope - Sakamichi no Apollon
    I am an anime enthusiast and have been watching anime for as long as I can remember. Kids on the Slope is by far one most memorable series I have ever watched. In fact, I watched it from start to finish in one day. It is simply THAT good. This is a beautiful story about an unlikely friendship through music(jazz). I'm not even a jazz fan and I HAD to buy the soundtrack. Please watch, I can promise ...

  • A masterpiece for me
    I laughed, I cried, I listened to good music. 11/10 would slope again.
    Really though it was a very emotionally poignant experience for me. Might just be that as a musician without a band (and who is also missing love in his life after about a year out of relationship) this show played on a lot of my fond memories and desires.

    Well written, beautifully animated, plus great tunes.

  • Ridiculously Surprised!
    I've never been a huge fan of Slice of Life anime, but this show made it to my top three favorite anime of all time after one viewing. This show was a perfect mix of beautiful imagery, fantastic music (especially all that jazz which isn't something I even listen to!), and very real characters and situations. I can honestly say that I loved every moment in this show - they were perfectly pieced ...
