Kids on the Slope Review (Japanese)
I think the last time I saw this Director/Music combination was Cowboy Bebop..... Or it could be the recent Space Dandy..... Not sure which one it would be..... Oh well!
Kids on the Slope is a 12 episode Drama/Romance series based on the manga by Yuki Kodama and published by Shogakukan. The anime from studios MAPPA and Tezuka Productions is directed by Shinichiro Watanabe.... Yes THAT Watanabe. The one who did Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo, and the recent Space Dandy. Kids on the Slope aired during the Spring 2012 season and is currently licensed by Sentai Filmworks (US), MVM Films (UK), and Hanabee (AUS). It’s also available for legal streaming in Japanese thanks to Crunchyroll and Hulu. The Anime Network also has the Japanese available for streaming and the English dub available for subscribers.
Next time, we return to my love of all things J. Michael Tatum! Until then, otaku on my friends!
Final Rating: 7/10 Jazz. It’s a powerful thing.
