  • Loss for words - Amazing!
    I don't typically write reviews, but man, this particular anime deserves one.

    It's a beautiful story about a group of teens trudging through awkward social interactions and coming to terms with what "love" actually means; with a hint of jazz. I cannot recommend this enough. There is just so much emotion packed neatly into 30 minute chunks, leaving you wanting more. Wished it never ended.

  • Kind of nostalgy never gets old
    This show is story of High-school kids in 1966. It is even one year before I was born (yeah, I'm already an old man :-) but still, everything in the show feels so fresh and so familiar. Kids are always kids no matter what year it was - they are young, they are stupid, they are careless and they are so serious - for music, for love, and for their life. This show reminds me when I was a high-school ...

  • A real gem of a show
    This is a show that knows exactly what it's trying to do. It has a clear setting and everything from the character designs to the art to the fantastic music are grounded in that - which allows for the wonderful characters and surprisingly compelling drama to shine through. The final episode had a few elements that I kind of wish weren't included but even so this is definitely a show I would ...

  • This anime really hit a personal not with me and I love it.
    This anime is one of the best I've seen lately. I know it's already a few years old by this point and barely anybody's going to see my review, but here goes!

    Honestly, I fell in love with this anime by the end of episode 4. When it goes into the history of the characters and what their motivations are, I realized I have a lot in common with the main protagonist, as silly as it sounds. His ...

  • Nothing but love for this anime.
    I have nothing but love for this anime. The well designed characters, environment and story make this one to remember and its music tone shows how small things bring unlikely people to meet. I recommend to anyone and everyone. This anime is amazing. <3 <3

    Best anime i have ever seen
    This anime tugs at your heart strings like no other, and the jazz just exhilarates the feeling. I have yet to find an anime that can compare to this one on such a deep level. There really isn't anything more to say

    A classic look at jazz in Japan
    The musical scenes in this one would make this show worth a watch by themselves, but it's wrapped up in a poetic look at a friendship between talented musicians who struggle to keep their geniuses safe from the forces at play in their world. Lots of angles to analyse this one from, a pretty rich "text" that holds up to a repeat viewing!

  • Simply Amazing, Really.
    Going in and coming out of this anime, I got what I wanted. From the art style of characters to character depth. Watching what made them who they are as it all unfolds in front of you will sit in the back of my mind and to the mention of it's title will bring back every second for me to live again. Even if you aren't into Slice of Life or Jazz, give it a chance, something good may come of it.

  • Beautiful story and beautiful music
    At first I was dubious if the makeshift friendship between Sentaro Kawabuchi and Kaoru Nishimi would work, but the character development in this story was surprisingly rewarding. Kaoru is a high school student who at first seems like a stuck up rich kid with social anxiety and family problems. Once Sentaro introduces Kaoru to Jazz his whole world and personality changes for the better. You can ...

  • Hard to find anything truly bad about this anime
    I'm fairly new to anime but I understand good plot and characters.

    It's hard to find anything to fault this anime on, perhaps in my personal opinion the last episode wasn't to my expectations but that's about it.

    Great Characters

    Great Premise
