  • You must watch. Amazin
    The music, the characters the plot are all amazing. While the time skips are annoying at times everything else makes up for it. Ever single character develops and becomes their own person.

    Incredible show with an underwhelming ending.
    This really was good anime. I enjoyed the music, the art, the incredible character development, and the very well-done drama throughout. For those who are unacquainted with Jazz as a music genre, this anime is even pretty educational. Oh, and WHO could forget that the director/composer duo is the same as in Cowboy Bebop, so it has an incredible score from the start. The only thing I really hated ...

    Great romance anime, wished it was longer though.
    I thoroughly enjoyed this romance anime. It had a unique storyline. I thought this anime would be predictable just like every other romance anime but it wasn't.. so it sets itself aside from other romance anime I've seen so far. The art is nice and simple; and the music is something that has not been used in anime.. Jazz!! Very cool and relaxed.

    It was a nice story overall. The ending got me ...

    A Jazzy Tale About Life

    Kids on the Slope 「坂道のアポロン」 is quite a remarkable piece. 9/10, would slope again. ミ☆ The creator Watanabe continues to impress me with his works. This one in particular is an emotional roller-coaster.

    Plot
    It starts off with rich boy Kaoru who is a very introverted person and has a hard time making friends. When he moves to Kyushu, he meets Sentaro, who is a troublemaker and

  • At the Top of Its Class.. or Slope In This Case
    Loved how this anime progressed. The character development was top notch; you can't help but connect with even the side characters. The animation was brilliant, especially since the small town that acts as the environment is an actual place in Japan! The level of detail in comparison is nearly identical. There's a very unique and original feel to it, and I was happy to find there weren't any ...

  • Now I need another series to fill the void...
    Just did a marathon of this inadvertently. My first impressions from the first few episodes were that this was a good anime, but after so many series that either plateaued or became mediocre, there was no indication that it would just get better and even become one of my favourites. 10/10 GREAT ANIME

  • Jazz, Friends, and Romance. What Else Do You Need?
    The perfect duo of Watanabe and Kanno does it again. Kids on the Slope is a fantastic anime that tells a heartfelt story between three friends who are drawn together by jazz. The story deals with themes such as heartbreak, growing up, and feeling out of place in the world and it is all beautiful.

    The animation is crisp, fluid, and gets near fantastic when the characters are playing their ...

  • Kids on the Slope; Jazz to my Ears.
    I'll start off with saying I'm a music lover. No, I'm not one of those angtsy teens who learned how to play guitar in high school and now think they can have a music career and travel around because they just love music (Which happens to consist of Corporate Auto-tuned Top-10 Pop Songs).

    I love actual music. I love Celtic Tin-Flutes to Gospel Organ Music (I'm not actually a ...

  • Wow!!! Wow!!! Wow!!!
    Beautifully done! The artwork, storyline, the characters, the animation and the music! A great "coming of age" story set in the mid to late 1960s (is my guess...).

    A great story of three friends, two of whom will be forever connected through a jazz song; it always brings them back.

    I love the artwork and animation of the characters performing - one of the best I've seen in a long time. ...

  • Absolutely Stunning!
    This show is filled with so much raw emotion and beautiful moments. It captures the highs and lows of growing up in a remarkable way. Life is not always easy, and the people who may seem the most different can come to be the closest of companions. Kids on the Slope manages to encapsulate life's ups and downs while feeling genuine and unforced in its conclusions. Powerful stuff.
