    Inspiring, but leaving me wanting so much more.
    I had my doubts before watching this anime, but once I started I couldn't stop. I power played through the series because it is just that good! Anyone who has any affection for the jazz genre of music will find this entertaining. The historical backdrop that the anime takes place in is rich to say the least and delivers a nostalgic punch to the viewer. After finishing the series I instantly felt ...

    Hooks You With Tunes, Then Drama
    I enjoyed the sound track to this show quite a bit, and the premise of jazz pulling these kids together certainly lends itself to exploring a fair few number of tunes. At the same time, don't go in expecting to be truly acquainted with the genre of music if you aren't familiar with it already - this show very much provides a sip, not a thirst quenching fill.

    Part of the reason for that is it ...

  • Ridiculously Surprised!
    I've never been a huge fan of Slice of Life anime, but this show made it to my top three favorite anime of all time after one viewing. This show was a perfect mix of beautiful imagery, fantastic music (especially all that jazz which isn't something I even listen to!), and very real characters and situations. I can honestly say that I loved every moment in this show - they were perfectly pieced ...

  • A masterpiece for me
    I laughed, I cried, I listened to good music. 11/10 would slope again.
    Really though it was a very emotionally poignant experience for me. Might just be that as a musician without a band (and who is also missing love in his life after about a year out of relationship) this show played on a lot of my fond memories and desires.

    Well written, beautifully animated, plus great tunes.

  • Kids on the Slope - Sakamichi no Apollon
    I am an anime enthusiast and have been watching anime for as long as I can remember. Kids on the Slope is by far one most memorable series I have ever watched. In fact, I watched it from start to finish in one day. It is simply THAT good. This is a beautiful story about an unlikely friendship through music(jazz). I'm not even a jazz fan and I HAD to buy the soundtrack. Please watch, I can promise ...

  • Perfection at it's Best.
    I myself have seen several different Anime's but none of them seem to stand out as good as Kids on the Slope did. Kids on the Slope was definitely a new take on Anime for me. Most of the Anime's I have seen usually have typical characters such as the Busty/Clumsy girl in it. But with "Kids on the Slope." they always had a fresh new twist incorporated within it. The setting in this Anime was ...

    Friendship forever!!
    Watched this anime after I found it on a list of mature anime on crunchyroll. I like kawaii girls and fan service as much as the next person but sometimes it's nice to take a break. Kids on the Slope does not disappoint. For fans of drama, 60s, or jazz, this show will be a must see but even if you aren't particularly into the themes you will be after watching this series.

    Unique, Beautiful... And maybe not for everyone
    Before saying anything else, it must be mentioned that the music and animation are both TOP NOTCH. If you fancy yourself a fan of music, Kids on the Slope delivers some amazing musical selections (episode 7 was by far my favorite arrangement, but they are all fantastic). And I was immediately blown away by the crisp and clean animation!

    My personal critique on this anime is the ...

    First series I watched on Crunchyroll -
    Characters, style, story, music, all top notch. It falls apart a bit at the very end but I usually have a problem with endings so maybe it's just me? Regardless, worth a watch for sure. I'd love to find more along the lines of this series to watch!
