  • Beautiful and Inspiring!
    This was simply beautiful and the tale of true friendship. Throw in a bit of romance and music from an epic era and you've created a masterpiece. This is definitely going on my favorites list. I recommend it.

    Refreshing and endearing
    After taking a three year hiatus from anime, I have found it difficult at times to watch new shows and truly enjoy them. Perhaps my growing love for innovative, abstract cinematic masterpieces and classic literature has naturally made me set the bar high. As an English major, I have found myself expecting nothing more than stories with strong character development and a well-crafted plot.
    So ...

    dont bother watching
    this anime was absolutely terrible and only speaks on the low industry standard we have all grown accustomed to today. the series revolves around simple one dimensional characters who portray japanese culture as sexist, homophobic, and sexually repressed. i am bummed out that this came Shinchiro Watanabe who made Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo, this is obviously a sign of his decline.

    It surpassed all my expectations
    The script is great, the story is engaging and entertaining, the characters are lovable, and the soundtrack is perfect. I wish there was more of this anime, or at least more like it. Truly one of a kind and the best anime to be made in a long time.

    Beautiful and Full of Life
    this is an anime that would make you laugh, cry, smile, think of going back to the 60's so on. Its very touching, like a reality through anime lenses thats how i would put it. you will be enchanted by every jazz jam played by the characters be you a jazz lover or not. I recommend it for everyone.

    Pure Perfection.....
    Previously posted on my blog: http://looneyexpress.blogspot.com/2013/01/anime-kids-on-slope.html#more

    Kids of the Slope was such a pleasant surprise. From the synopsis, I imagined a typical music anime, just one based on jazz. However, it was amazing to discover that this series was about so much than that.

    Kaoru is the new kid of the slope (their school is atop a hill) and ...

    These Are a Few of My Favorite Things
    Phenomenal music, good story, excellent animation. Everything you'd expect from Shinichiro Watanabe and Yoko Kanno. Bittersweet to the end and short enough to not drag out. Like any good jazz song. It's a coming of age tale that feels somewhat predictable in it's handling of high school emotions but right when you've got the whole thing figured out it changes on you. They switch tune and tone. ...

    allegro: the sweet sour of futures
    With anime it is often about archtypes and grand stories, not the small idyll which high school is revealed in retrospect. This anime is more about character and the way challenge is dealt with than any traditional guy meet girl, wait a few episodes for them to fall in love, etc.
    The questions faced are ones you have faced: how does what I love as a hobby translate after high school, and can ...

  • Kids on the slope / my coming of age
    As I approach my last year in school I find my-self questioning what I want to become in this world and what I'll leave (deep I know but don't worry its not all this depressing). Kids on the slope is a an anime that in my opinion comes round very rarely and is scarcely appreciated for what it is, a great, realistic look at a random life somewhere. I like these types of animes as they make me ...
