  • An introduction to Jazz
    Sakamichi no Apollon | 坂道のアポロン made me like Jazz. That is how powerful the content, under the direction of Watanabe Shinichiro and music composed by Kanno Yoko, is to me. For a show, any show, let alone anime, to do that, is something to be noted.

    Much like Jazz, Sakamichi has its own style, set in 1968, a turbulent year for the world and Japan. Anime fans will find that like the music, the ...

    Absolutely worth the time.
    A perfect mix of emotion, excitement, and timeless romance all combine to make this series a must watch for any slice of life enthusiast. Not a slice of life kind of guy or gal? Don't worry, you wont feel disappointed having invested the time to watch the entire show in an afternoon off.

    Beginning with the typical dejected protagonist down on his luck and stuck in a bad family situation, our ...

    A timeless story of growing up, making friends and falling in love
    A timeless story of growing up, making friends and falling in love. Why is this series so popular? Because we can all relate to it. As you watch, you relive all your past insecurities in youth such as not feeling pretty enough, strong enough, smart enough, popular enough.

    There are things in life that are beyond what we can physically see. Friendship and love are two of these special ...

  • Kids on the Slope leaves you wishing for more...
    This anime was one of the best I have watched. I loved the animation, the story and the music. I only wished it had not ended. I cried, I laughed . It was a heart warming story. All I can say is I wish there had been more episodes.

  • Enjoyable show, enjoyable music
    This was a fun anime to watch and is a good summer anime. I enjoyed the music of the show as much as I enjoyed the characters. I wish they had developed some of the lesser characters a little more, such as Richie's cousin. Who is she?

    They ending was a little sad but in a good way.

  • Only one word needed
    The main characters were ones that I could relate too. The subtle plot twists were engaging and heart breaking. Finally, a show full of substance and an ending that did the series justice. It was absolutely FANTASTIC

    Apollo Rockets on the Hill...
    When I heard the director of Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo was making a new anime, was quite eager to see. After all, nothing like a genre-shattering, bar-raising anime to make your day, right? However, this was a less flashy premise, so was curious to see how it was handled...

    In a word, very skillfully. The rotoscoped performance pieces were gorgeous, the music of course ...

  • Classy, deep, emotional. and real.
    And the freakin' music is totally jammin'! ........

    134 more characters? What do they want me to do, give away the plot? Well, I ain't going to do it.. and don't expect me to write any more reviews if this is the hassle I have to deal with.

  • Kids on the Slope is perfect.
    I have no complaints, other than that I would have been okay with more episodes, more music, more time to get to know the characters. When the worst thing about a series is that there isn't enough of it, you know that you've found something good.

    So the plot and characters are subtly written and carefully developed, this show is all about nuance and it nails it every episode. The music is ...
