Through his devil-may-care classmate, Kaoru learns the attractions of jazz and finds the first person he can call a ?friend?. He also discovers how much fun it is to play music with a pal. Other characters include Sentaro?s kind childhood chum, Ritsuko, who is the daughter of a record shop owner; the mysterious upperclassman, Yurika; and Brother Jun, the much-admired leader among their peers.

Must have on Spring '12 watch-list!
Though, firstly, I have to say, it’s not in 1966, it’s in 1996.
As soon as you see the opening, you can tell that it’s going to be an amazing anime. Sakamichi No Apollon brings together a growing-up story, characterized by superior animation. The story begins in 1996 (No, not in the 60’s, unlike popular belief. Chapter 1 page 40 of the manga clearly shows that it’s in the 90’s) with the braniac of the series. First episode and the opening already shows that it’s going to be similar to Nodame Cantabile. So if you like Noda, you must check this out. Besides the fact the manga has very similar art, it’s about meeting new people, growing up, music, friendship, and romance, it is very different. Sakamichi No Apollon gives off a unique vibe to it, and given it’s producers, you can see why. It’s a joint project, by workers who are known to bring us sucessful anime’s such as Cowboy Bebop and Macross Plus. This anime, Sakamichi No Apollon must be checked out. If you are unsure, check out the first episode, and if that’s too much, then the opening. The first episode ties in the whole "vibe" of the series, and even with only one episode, you’ll feel as if you’ve known the characters for a long time.
