    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!

    One of the finest shows ever
    Ok, why do I think this show is one of the finest ever?

    Its storyline. It is a very realistic story, no monsters, demons, giant robots destroying the world.

    It's about friendship, dating and the troubles that come along with life. What is really wonderful is that is is exciting to watch and you always want to see the next ep. (In other words, the writers have made you care about what ...

    A must see for anyone who loves music AND anime
    After the last season of shows ended i was looking for something to excite me and make me need to come to crunchyroll. I looked up and down the pages for a long time and kept passing over this particular anime, when i finally watched it i wished i had gotten to see it sooner. Kids on the Slope is a perfect mix of music, art, and story line.

    Anime of the Summer!
    Upon my first encounter with this anime I was instantly drawn in. The ambiance and mood of the story centers solely around music, particularly the symphonic, expressive genre of jazz. With sessions produced by Yoko Kanno, a well known producer and composer known for her work in amines such as Cowboy Bebop and Darker Than Black, this coming-of-age story comes to life in this small town in ...

    Glad I gave it a chance.
    This is hands-down the best anime of the Spring 2012 season. I wasn't all that eager to watch it at first glance and the first episode was so-so for me, but by the second episode I was hooked and I haven't been disappointed since.

    Although I enjoy much of the silly shounen stuff, it's wonderful shows like this with good characters and good storytelling (not to mention an excellent jazz ...

    Accurate and great animation!
    As an instrumentalist, I have to say this is one of the first where all the animations for the instruments are accurate! The fluidity of the animation and the quality behind all of the sound and characters is terrific. Love this series!

    such attention to detail
    I really enjoy this anime, I was blow away with the attention to detail they go through to animate the musicians. Even take the time to video record live performances and then animate based on real performances just shows how much attention to detail they are striving for. I love the story line as well.

    Favorite Music Anime
    This anime is by far one of my favorites. Although I was really not really appealed by it at first, after watching the first episode I was hooked. However I was a bit disappointed that their was no saxophone player in the group. Come on now whats's a Jazz band without a saxophone. Aside from that though I definitely recommend others to watch this.
