    Glad I gave it a chance.
    This is hands-down the best anime of the Spring 2012 season. I wasn't all that eager to watch it at first glance and the first episode was so-so for me, but by the second episode I was hooked and I haven't been disappointed since.

    Although I enjoy much of the silly shounen stuff, it's wonderful shows like this with good characters and good storytelling (not to mention an excellent jazz ...

    Anime of the Summer!
    Upon my first encounter with this anime I was instantly drawn in. The ambiance and mood of the story centers solely around music, particularly the symphonic, expressive genre of jazz. With sessions produced by Yoko Kanno, a well known producer and composer known for her work in amines such as Cowboy Bebop and Darker Than Black, this coming-of-age story comes to life in this small town in ...

    A must see for anyone who loves music AND anime
    After the last season of shows ended i was looking for something to excite me and make me need to come to crunchyroll. I looked up and down the pages for a long time and kept passing over this particular anime, when i finally watched it i wished i had gotten to see it sooner. Kids on the Slope is a perfect mix of music, art, and story line.

    One of the finest shows ever
    Ok, why do I think this show is one of the finest ever?

    Its storyline. It is a very realistic story, no monsters, demons, giant robots destroying the world.

    It's about friendship, dating and the troubles that come along with life. What is really wonderful is that is is exciting to watch and you always want to see the next ep. (In other words, the writers have made you care about what ...

    so impossibly hooked!
    the music! the character development! the euphoria!!!!
    i will CRY when this is over.

    like "Genshiken," the everyday-life feel of this series is so ordinary that it's extraordinary in its delivery. i can't get over how stunningly simplistic and rich it is!

    I can't even describe it.
    Upon seeing the advert. poster, I immediately thought "Oh. Another boring anime this season!" But it could be the exact opposite. Sakamichi No Apollon, otherwise known as Kids On The Slope, is now one of my favourites. The characters each have their own little back stories that are all somehow related to each other. While one may think that this show may just be about jazz music, there is a ...

    Excellent series, must watch. Hope it ends well
    A little melodramatic, but this show is tops right now for me in the genre. This show has soul, like Beck did when I first watched it. This show is very endearing, semi-realistic, they try something different with the script this time and it worked. Not your cookie cutter slice of life/school/romance series. EXCELLENT! 5/5!

    A grasping and captivating story of the friendships that we all have experienced in some way shape or form throughout our lives.
    This series touches one's soul in a way that anime series rarely do. Heartwrenching at times, and heartwarming at other times, this series portrays what we all have gone through, are going through, or will go through.

    Personally, this series brings me back to my teenage years. It brings back all those fleeting memories of chasing after that one girl, of the desperation in finding myself, and ...
