Sakamichi Drama Quartet Session

Kids on the Slope (Sakamichi no Apollon)

Two different students – a successful but aloof academic and a rebellious but kindhearted delinquent – form a friendship through their love of listening to and performing jazz.

Watanabe’s 12-episode adaptation is based on a 10-volume manga written by Yuki Kodama. A live-action drama movie was produced in 2018.

Kids on the Slope takes place between a city called Saebo and an island in the Kujuku Islands called Kuroshima, both in Nagasaki Prefecture.
