  • 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 ...

    Wow this anime has it all!!
    I am so impressed with this anime. The characters alone are each unique and interesting. Kaoru is the intellectual, Sentaro is the misfit would be thug, and then there is Ritsuko she is a serious often unsure girl who when she makes up her mind she is a force to be reckoned with. There is love, a triangle, heartache, shock, sadness and hope all in one anime.
    The music is just the best of ...

    I especially like how the Catholicism angle played out
    It's refreshing to see religion portrayed in a positive light. The characters were all beautifully designed, and realistically written. Kaoru was obviously the ...

  • Simply jazzy, awesome and beautiful
    Everything about this anime is awesome and beautiful. This much anticipated anime has lived up to the anticipation. IT's just got that thing that I feel anime has been missing. heart and soul.

    If you haven't already realized it, once you get to episode episode 7, and at about the 16:45 mark to the end of the episode, you realize how awesome this anime actually is. I could watch that scene over ...

    Anime's most recent artistic masterpiece.
    Kids on the Slope was the best show of Spring 2012, and, with all due respect to Fate/Zero 2nd, it was by far. It is an artistic piece that has all the traits that form a masterpiece: spectacular writing, top-notch animation, excellent production values, inspiring and moving story, top-class voice acting, appealing cast of characters, well balanced character development, powerful satisfying ...
