    Incredible show with an underwhelming ending.
    This really was good anime. I enjoyed the music, the art, the incredible character development, and the very well-done drama throughout. For those who are unacquainted with Jazz as a music genre, this anime is even pretty educational. Oh, and WHO could forget that the director/composer duo is the same as in Cowboy Bebop, so it has an incredible score from the start. The only thing I really hated ...

  • 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.

    First series I watched on Crunchyroll -
    Characters, style, story, music, all top notch. It falls apart a bit at the very end but I usually have a problem with endings so maybe it's just me? Regardless, worth a watch for sure. I'd love to find more along the lines of this series to watch!

    Unique, Beautiful... And maybe not for everyone
    Before saying anything else, it must be mentioned that the music and animation are both TOP NOTCH. If you fancy yourself a fan of music, Kids on the Slope delivers some amazing musical selections (episode 7 was by far my favorite arrangement, but they are all fantastic). And I was immediately blown away by the crisp and clean animation!

    My personal critique on this anime is the ...

    Friendship forever!!
    Watched this anime after I found it on a list of mature anime on crunchyroll. I like kawaii girls and fan service as much as the next person but sometimes it's nice to take a break. Kids on the Slope does not disappoint. For fans of drama, 60s, or jazz, this show will be a must see but even if you aren't particularly into the themes you will be after watching 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 ...
