    READ the manga after watching the series!
    This is my first review so bear with me. I usually just stick to a few annime shows (Bleach, Naruto, Evangelion) and dont really like to "try" new ones, mainly cause ill watch a few epsodes and not like them. The few annime shows I have actually watched through left me with a feeling of time wasted or no feeling at all. Fast foward to this show. Boy am I glad I "tried" this one out! After the ...

    Thank you for composing this wonderful piece.
    To everyone that participated in the making of this wonderful compilation of truly moving scenes and acts. I laughed, teared, smiled and felt a wide variety of emotions as I was able to witness this powerful piece. I wish more to come. A fan always, Some Guy.

    Everyone's teenage years ensconced in one concise anime
    With Watanabe Shinichirô at the helm and Kanno Yôko on music, it is already apparent that a true gem is in the works. Indeed the masters behind 坂道のアッポロン「Sakamichi no Apollon」do not disappoint as they craft a tale about friendship, alienation, and acceptance. The latter, I believe, underlies the series central theme. Incidentally, all three of the main characters (Sentaro, Kaoru, and ...

  • THE BEST ANIME EVER!!!!!!
    Nothing but pure greatness if you love romance, drama, comedy and music genre's combined into a well put together anime I'd give it 3 thumbs up but I only have 2 hands. Very good music. The jazz added a nice touch and the development and bonds between 2 friends keeps you coming back for more. I don't normally buy anime's but will definitely have to buy this when it comes out.

    An excellent anime: gripping and emotional from start till finish
    A complete 12 ep review:
    I heard about this anime because I was vaguely familiar with the manga. I checked it out after CR announced the simulcast and I have to say the first ep was very interesting. So I kept watching and it was great from ep 1 until the end of the show at ep 12.

    Storyline/Character: The show revolves around 3 main characters- Kaoru (the new kid that transfers many ...

    A grasping and captivating story of the friendships that we all have experienced in some way shape or form throughout our lives.
    This series touches one's soul in a way that anime series rarely do. Heartwrenching at times, and heartwarming at other times, this series portrays what we all have gone through, are going through, or will go through.

    Personally, this series brings me back to my teenage years. It brings back all those fleeting memories of chasing after that one girl, of the desperation in finding myself, and ...

    Excellent series, must watch. Hope it ends well
    A little melodramatic, but this show is tops right now for me in the genre. This show has soul, like Beck did when I first watched it. This show is very endearing, semi-realistic, they try something different with the script this time and it worked. Not your cookie cutter slice of life/school/romance series. EXCELLENT! 5/5!

    I can't even describe it.
    Upon seeing the advert. poster, I immediately thought "Oh. Another boring anime this season!" But it could be the exact opposite. Sakamichi No Apollon, otherwise known as Kids On The Slope, is now one of my favourites. The characters each have their own little back stories that are all somehow related to each other. While one may think that this show may just be about jazz music, there is a ...

    so impossibly hooked!
    the music! the character development! the euphoria!!!!
    i will CRY when this is over.

    like "Genshiken," the everyday-life feel of this series is so ordinary that it's extraordinary in its delivery. i can't get over how stunningly simplistic and rich it is!
