  • sooooooo underrated!
    This is one of the best anime ive ever seen. definitely in my top 5. and while the art style is somewhat lacking, the animation and the story are phenomenal! the animations when the characters play instruments are amazing! you can tell a lot of time was put into that. and at first i was like "oh an anime about jazz music? how about naw." the only reason i watched this anime is because is was super ...

  • Amazing show, even for a a slower anime!
    From the creator of Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo. This show is a little slower paced, but it tells a great story. If you like jazz or just music in general this show has plenty of it. This is a romance anime but the relationships don't end in the way you would think they would. The relationships seem more realistic and have their fair share of downs as well as ups. Check it out!

  • It's a damn good show
    This is a good effing show. I had just finished Your Lie In April and watched a BlackCriticGuy review where he says that there are a few animes which are kind of similar to it in ways. This was one of them (just a couple similarities like the theme of music, main character plays piano).
    I immensely enjoyed both shows. This one was really good, although the main character can get a bit ...

  • You cannot not binge watch this.
    Honestly, this was at the bottom of my queue. I am so glad that I needed a short anime to fill some time. Why did I wait so long? If for some reason you are reading this, please watch it.
    Kids on the Slope was beautiful. Just beautiful.
    It is on my 10 list and will remain on my queue.

  • Enjoyed much more than I would've thought
    Not that i dislike jazz, but I didnt think it would make for an interesting theme for a show. I was so wrong, the show immediately pulled me in, both with its amazing characters and its fantastic music choices and soundtrack. Definitely a Must Watch for any music lover out there, or for anyone who just wants to be sucked in to a great story.

  • You need this in your life
    There are only a few amines out there that really make me feel like I'm a part of the story or that I've experienced those life lessons before and "Kids on the Slope" took my breath away. I kept crying at the end. You always assume that everything will work itself out in the end, but this anime took 8 years after the events to bring everyone together. I would definitely recommend this show to ...

  • Yoko Kano, Jazz and Swing
    A slice of life story about two kids who couldn't be any more different. Finding an Unbreakable bond of friendship through Swing Music. Like any slice of life that stays with you, the characters are multi layered and interesting. As an adult I could relate to many of the rights of passage the protagonist goes through be it the great successes and the grand disappointments all accompanied by an ...

  • Jazz and Youth Go Together Like Cream and Coffee
    Being young is a crazy time in your life, things aren't promised forever, and as a college student reaching their senior year, nothing rings more true than this. Kids on The Slope tells a story of three main characters going to school and dealing with their daily lives.

    Though what makes this different than a regular high school anime is just that, the kids, the characters, their drives and ...

  • Watched this because of an AMV
    I had never heard of this show until I saw an AMV at Anime Boston for it. I was pleasantly surprised to see Crunchyroll had it. I'm really just writing this review so that I can put in my 5 stars for it. I hope others can come across it as well.

    It's another anime set in high school, but it moves very quickly and the characters development is very good. Most of them will charm your heart. The ...
