"I think that in order to find reality, each must search for his own universe, look for the details that contribute to this reality that one feels under the surface of things. To be an artist means to search, to find and look at these realities. To be an artist means never to look away."
March 23, 1910 — September 6, 1998
Happy 104th birthday to Akira Kurosawa
Kids on the Slope is one of my favorite animes of 2013. Shinchiro Watanabe and Yoko Kanno really nailed it (which is to be expected). The Jazz/Bebop soundtrack featured on the show is fantastic. Below you’ll find a Spotify playlist that I created with the help of Kotaku’s Listeners Guide to Kids on the Slope. Enjoy
