So this OST has both cover songs and Kanno's original compositions in it?

Probably the last update on this thread before I create the OT for the show in 2 weeks:

New trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8owoGJntHJw

Website updated: http://www.noitamina-apollon.com/

And finally...


For those who missed it earlier, the noitaminA conference can still be watched, and apparently not just for premium users!

Time stamps for performances:

0:01:10 - Moanin' (Piano: Takashi Matsunaga, Drums: Jun Ishikawa)

0:29:20 - Someday my prince will come (Piano: Takashi Matsunaga, Drums: Jun Ishikawa)

0:34:10 - Pythagora Switch (Kuricorder Quartet)

0:44:45 - Tsuritama March (Kuricorder Quartet)

1:10:30 - Special Session Medley (Kuricorder Quartet, Piano: Takashi Matsunaga, Drums: Jun Ishikawa)

The Kuricorder Quartet performances are for Tsuritama, the other show on the noitaminA block, but the piano and drums performances are from the two guys who will be performing the actual pieces in Apollon. :D


And....

New Spring Titles: Tsuritama, Mysterious Girlfriend X & Kids on the Slope
Kids on the Slope is set to broadcast on Thursday, April 12th at 9:30am PDT in the following territories: U.S.A, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand



In the summer of 1966 Kaoru Nishimi moved by himself from Yokosuka to Kyushu to live with relatives. Until then, Kaoru was an honor roll student who tended to keep to himself, but meeting notorious bad boy Sentaro Kawabuchi would change all of that. 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. Set against the backdrop of a seaside town with a scent of American culture, this series is a drama about young people coming into their own, crossing each other's paths, and finding friendship, love, and music!

Check out the trailer!

Apollon apparently has the same dynamic though. Guy A likes Girl who likes Guy B, Guy A and Guy B are bros.

So its a bromance and a girl like a trio of good friends or a gay romance story done for girls?
The trailer seems to indicate the latter, and im not watching if it ends with a shitty love triangle with problems and characters all emo, even if its done by god watanabe and has yoko music.

EDIT:
The second trailer looks much better.

My guess is that this exactly like Bebop and Champloo, there are hints of romance but it wont evolve one way or another.
