Kids On The Slope Coming To DVD and Blu-ray This Summer

In the summer of 1966, high school freshman Kaoru Nishimi moves from Yokosuka to Kyushu to live with his relatives as his father is away working.

A lifelong outsider and prone to panic attacks, Kaoru sticks out like a sore thumb and, on his first day, is warned to steer clear of Sentaro Kawabuchi.

Sentaro frequently skips class, gets into fights with seniors just for the hell of it...and loves jazz.

Kaoru has studied classical piano since he was a kid but when he hears Sentaro pounding out a be-bop beat on the drums, the rhythm takes hold of his mind and refuses to let go.

Yet when Kaoru tries to play the intro to Art Blakey's hard bop classic Moanin', Sentaro tells him he has no swing.

Can Kaoru learn to swing and has he finally found a friend in the jazz-loving class hooligan?

MVM is going to be release Kids On The Slope on both DVD and Blu-ray in June 2013.

Check out the Kids On The Slope website for more info and keep swinging!
