  • Fantastic! Worth Watching!
    The plot was great, the music was great, the intricate web of drama and romance was great, and the characters were great! And so was the art! All in all, it was completely fantastic! Definitely worth watching!

  • One of the absolute best, to be sure.
    In every sense of that expression. From the music to the detail put into the animation (it resembles watercolors) and intricacies of the characters, this masterpiece is bound to captivate you. It's sure moving me.

    Jazzin' it Up with Faith
    Kids on the Slope (Sakamichi no Apollon, in Japanese romanji) takes place in mid-1960s Japan and focuses on the lives of a group of high school kids who have a love for American jazz. Through the romance, the music, and of course, the drama, this josei series created by Yuki Kodama tells how life itself is like a jazz compilation: spontaneous, beautiful, and always finishes with an unpredictable ...

    Amazing, a must watch...
    Saying, "The overwhelming positive ratings speak for themselves" has never been more true with this anime. It's beautiful. The story, the music, the entire package is pure bliss.

    There was moments that I laughed loudly, moments I literally cried, and moments I found myself pretty angry. It really draws you in.

    My only gripe is that the anime is too short. But, that said it deserves a 5 ...

    One of the best animes!
    It has to be one of the best animes ever to come out of Japan! It can be heart-rendering but heart-warming at times! Friendship(s) can be beautiful to have if it is cultivated with a lot of love and care, it can go a long way! That's what I believe. I do not know if this holds true for our present-day society because of the internet and video games that we are terribly addicted to! Back then, ...

    And at the end, I totally cried like a baby. T-T
    Kids on the Slope is one of the best anime in a long time. And there are three specific reasons why(completely based on my opinion):
    1. It is beautifully crafted, both visually and aurally (I mean, com'on people, it's JAZZ. Jazz is the best).
    2. Yeah, okay there are some love triangles. Sometimes, love triangles can really suck the life out of an anime. They go on and on and no one ...

    My favorite anime of this year so far.
    Wow can I just say that this series took me by surprise. I was hooked on the first episode. The characters portrayed an honest love-triangle and acted like actual high school students. The music in this series is really beautiful and I loved that they played jazz. The art style is unique and the colors that they used changed along with the context of the plot. This added to the overall tone and ...

    Kids on a Slope - Review
    My Feelings:
    This anime is a fresh and realistic view of a group of teenagers struggling with their identities and their feelings for each other. I am particularly pleased about how realistic the emotions are, and how complicated they are in their development. You clearly see how one character slowly falls in love with another, and the end result of that journey.

    Not without it’s conflicts, ...

    Hope this becomes a Classic.
    It's been a while since I watched a slice-of-life genre that was worth watching all the way through. This show is about timeless friendship between a small group jazz enthusiasts.

    The authors/writers got everything right. Characters, setting, plot are all very well executed. And the animation isn't half bad. But this is the best bromance I've seen that couldn't easily be turned into vaguely ...
