Sakamichi no Apollon

Dec 29, 2013

Secret Santa Review - 2013

Sakamichi no Apollon(Kids on the Slope) is a slice of of life set in post-war Japan. The animation reflects this with a rustic color scheme and simple character designs. A story about two boys from broken families who find solace in jazz music, Sakamichi no Apollon follows these boys through their high school years. As a 12 episode series, this means that the narrative can feel a little rushed at times.

Overall I thought this was an excellent show, and the ending really threw me for a loop, in a good way.
