Oldtaku no Radio # 020 – Kids on the Slope

Kids on the Slope sees Cowboy Bebop's Shinichiro Watanabe (director) and Yoko Kanno (music) adapt Yuki Kodama's manga about youths in 1960s Japan (Kyushu) who find each other and themselves through jazz. As MAPPA's first production, KoTS needed to make a splash. Its musical performances, VA work, art, storyboarding, choreography, characterization, and soundtrack make it an anime of legend. Find out what went into making this insanely enjoyable anime and what hosts Jared and Ink as well as guest Alex Osborn got out of it. (We do run long on this one, but there is a lot to unpack here.)
