Well made but too juvenile for top score.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kids On The Slope Collection [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Having loved Watanabes previous projects,I had great hopes for this jazz-themed series. However I soon realized that, while very well made - especially the musical scenes - the series had a maturity level directed at teenagers. This is not a bad thing by itself, but increasingly the characters' actions became less believable and felt like a grown up's misjudged opinion about how teenagers react. Well, what do I know, I'm 40 myself...
Technically,the presentation is superb. The Blu-Ray quality is good, I didn't notice any banding (which often plagues anime products), the English subtitles were clear and seemed to follow the Japanese Audio well. I'd recommend Kids on the Slope to anyone between 10 and 18.
