    This show is the real deal.
    I never watch an anime that was this real life before, is kind of like a slice of life story and it made cry a lot because I felt so much like one of the character in the story. This anime will always be a top 10 in my hear with is realistic plots and jazzy music

  • The must watch anime!
    It is rare to find a show that is so pure and honest with it's story. The movement and flow, the music and color, everything takes you for a ride that you never want to get off. Even so, when it finally ends, you can't help but smile as you find your heart warmed by the efforts made by the entire staff behind this show. From top to bottom, you can tell that there was a considerable amount of ...

  • Kids on the Slope - Beautiful and Touching
    On a cold rainy morning I am listening to a Kids on The Slope playlist on Spotify and it is sublime (there are two but you can't go wrong really). This Anime was set in post World War II Japan about three high school students that spend a lot of time playing and obsessing over jazz music. The kids alternate between facing and running from their demons but the best part was they took it out not ...

  • Stunning Music Anime
    One of my top 25 anime somewhat simple but very powerful and immersive. From early on you develop a connection to the characters and once they start working together and getting to know each other it becomes amazing. What happens when you see what trails they pull through and how the characters evolve is wonderful. After watching and even during I've grown a fondness for Jazz which I didn't ...

    Absolutely beautiful
    I don't even remember how I came across this anime but as a fan of Music based animes I added it to my qeue. On a whim I decided to watch the first episode and see how I felt. I finished it in one sitting. I loved every episode. I cried a lot. *****

  • Have supplies before you start
    Once you start down the slope its hard to stop. But entirely worth it. One of the best anime on CR. Be prepared to marathon this, even if you don't mean to.

    The music gets into your head and your heart and won't let go. I've got to see if there is an OST for sale somewhere. Enjoy.

    A True Slice Of Life...From Start To Finish
    Kids on the Slope demonstrates to viewers just what a Slice of Life is really about. Nothing in this show feels forced. The characters and events just simply flow along like the jazz they all love so much.

    Just as there are chords and notes in jazz that seem off and rough at times, so too are the lives of Kaoru and Sentaro when they have to deal with their love and friendship relationships. ...

  • Wonderful and touching series
    This series warms my heart, I truly enjoyed it and wish there was more. Great music and true friendship. I cried often throughout the series and I enjoyed all of the character and the storyline. Why can't we see this type of stuff on regular TV shows?

    From a musician's View
    I was nothing more than a rock guitarist at the time I watched this series. Two years later, I find myself looking into their direction of music while keeping that rock and roll sound. Nevertheless, this is a great anime. I'm going to watch it again.

    A Great Story, Ok Ending
    This is a story that grabbed my attention quickly. A story full of excitement, fun, and love. Anyone who loves jazz or a slice of life story, this is a must watch. Kids on The Slope presents it's self just perfectly in it's first episode with amazing animation and music. However as the episodes move on, we get fewer scenes with music and more drama. Which is not a bad thing considering it's a 12 ...
