“Sakamichi no Apollon” (Kids on the Slope) Trailer

A more revealing trailer for the live-action Kids on the Slope has been released! There are some of the most memorable scenes featured in the anime that were adapted for the silver screen, and they look amazing!

Here’s more about the new film:

Kaoru is a brainy young man who moves during the summer of his first year in high school from Yokosuka to his uncle’s house in Kyushu. In fact, Kaoru has been moving from place to place ever since he was a little kid due to his father’s constant departure to work on a ship. That, combined with his expanded family’s expectations for him, causes him to become an extreme introvert. But after Kaoru encounters Sentarō, he starts to change, all while learning the joys of jazz. Kaoru is a skilled pianist, familiar with classical music until he meets Sentarō and he starts practicing jazz music with him. Kaoru has unrequited feelings for Ritsuko who initially loves Sentarō instead until Ritsuko starts reciprocating his feelings. In the last chapter of the manga, he and Ritsuko are revealed to have gotten married, and Ritsuko is pregnant with their child. 

I look forward to this live-action film!

  1. I cringe at any idea of a live-action in general, but especially so when it involves my favorite manga/anime. I was resistant about this one at first as well, but I have to say I’m beginning to warm up to it. I think the casting is appropriate–I mean, no one is shorter than that HSJ guy lol. I’m sure Komatsu will turn in a good performance. I’m looking forward to watching this. I’ll try to keep my mind as open as possible.
