Sakamichi no Apollon

Quote from:
* Based on a josei manga by Kodama Yuki, serialised in Monthly Flowers.

The coming-of-age story of love, friendship, and music follows a naive boy and a scruffy boy in a provincial town in Nagasaki Prefecture in the late 1960s. In the early summer of 1966, Kaoru transfers to the local high school from Yokosuka. Thanks to his family\'s nearly constant cycle of moving from town to town, Kaoru has only known school as a difficult place for readjusting everytime. However, on his first day at this new school, he meets a boy and begins a new direction in life.

Mostly anticipated because the director: Watanabe Shinichiro (Comboy Bebop). The premise of the story is kind of simple; loner finds friends through his passion for music, so the storyline has to be carried by the characters. Given, the personas are quite realistic. Accompanied by a nice soundtrack as we are accustomed to from an anime centered arround music. Too bad I don\'t like jazz all that much.
