Storyline

Kaoru, an aloof honour student, has always moved from town to town due to his father's work, this means he never really settled anywhere either. Moving to Kyushu he expected it to be the same as always, yet this time something was different. He first grew close to the class president, but even more interesting was his shared connection with her and the class 'bad boy' over music, more specifically Jazz. Here in Kyushu, he finally forms his first real friendships. Written by Mattias1

Much more emotional and earthly than Shinichirō Watanabe's previous works....
26 August 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Much more emotional and earthly than Shinichirō Watanabe's previous works... why, yes there are several reasons for that....first ,the characters are high school students ,more like makato sinkai's characters...second ,they show a deeper level of love and friendship among them which is very naive ... third, the music and the soundtracks used in the whole series...

Yoko Kanno joined Watanabe for the third time and together they created a magical musical journey... direction is not edgier as that of cowboy bebop or samurai champloo but still its great... highly recommendable... my ratings-9/10
