  • 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 ...

  • Wonderful and touching series
    This series warms my heart, I truly enjoyed it and wish there was more. Great music and true friendship. I cried often throughout the series and I enjoyed all of the character and the storyline. Why can't we see this type of stuff on regular TV shows?

    A True Slice Of Life...From Start To Finish
    Kids on the Slope demonstrates to viewers just what a Slice of Life is really about. Nothing in this show feels forced. The characters and events just simply flow along like the jazz they all love so much.

    Just as there are chords and notes in jazz that seem off and rough at times, so too are the lives of Kaoru and Sentaro when they have to deal with their love and friendship relationships. ...

  • Have supplies before you start
    Once you start down the slope its hard to stop. But entirely worth it. One of the best anime on CR. Be prepared to marathon this, even if you don't mean to.

    The music gets into your head and your heart and won't let go. I've got to see if there is an OST for sale somewhere. Enjoy.
