    Default Kuroko no Basket Discussion

    Lol, seriously, it is now halfway through the anime and yet nobody's posted anything about it? XDD


    Kuroko no Basket was created by Fujimaki Tadatoshi, and is currently being serialized in JUMP. This is his debut work - yet it is now selling over thousands over copies in Japan. It's a hit!!

    I don't know how many people knew it before the anime was produced. BUT!! After the anime was made, the manga sales started to sky-rocket as it rode the waves. It is now one of the best sellers - it marked 3rd place as of volume 18.


    It's a story about high-school basketball, and yeah - the majority of the cast are boys. But they all have different personalities, and the character development is excellent.

    Some people say it's similar to Prince of Tennis - but trust me, Kuroko no Basket is much better.

    I watch it weekly. It's pretty good.
    I don't really like the new OP/ED though :/

    That doesn't set the bar very high, honestly; seen 32 episodes of PoT and I can't see anyone else than someone who plays tennis to be interested in it at all.

    E: To clarify, that doesn't necessarily mean KnB would be bad; haven't watched a single episode of it.

    The majority of the Kuroko no Basket fans don't know about basketball either, yet the popularity is increasing.

    So anyways, you don't need to know about basketball to watch KnB. They include explanations when they're necessary, and it's mostly a high school story focused around basketball. It's also a much realistic one compared to other sports anime.

    Ah XDD Yeah - but a lot of basketball players CAN shoot the ball across the court. It's only a matter of accuracy.

    Then again, I guess Midorima's accuracy is insanely high...XDD

    It's pretty unrealistic, but fun to watch anyways XD Kuroko's skill is impossible to do irl P:
    I'm slowly going through the manga, and idk, but I think the anime flows better than the manga?
    I mean, I watched Eyeshield 21 & read the manga, but I preferred the manga, so it's not the sports action in anime>manga thing for me.

    The anime has a better description on character development.

    OMFG I DIDN'T KNOW THIS THREAD EXISTED???? fist BUMP FOR POSTERITY!

    I am freaking OBSESSED with Kuroko no Basuke; I actually just recently caught up to both the manga and the anime. I'm a huge fan of sports anime in general, so finding this was a definite treat for me. All the characters are so lovable and they go through EXCELLENT DEVELOPMENT <3

    Who's your favorite character? I'm a huge Kagami fan because I love that he's the underdog of the series, but also has the capability to be the strongest plus, he's the rebound guy for aomine to kuroko lol And he's just hilarious and NICE and caring!

    I could go on all day about him, but...that would get tiring XDDD

    YAY MOAR KUROKO FANS XDD!!

    They really show awesome basketball tactics, but of course, the strongest point would be the impressive character development. While maintaining the personalities of each boy, they all show growth and progress in mentality.

    As of this week, the Kuroko no Basket anime will end. However, there are speculations of a second season, even nothing has been officially announced.

    If they can keep up the quality, a second season will totally blow me away XDD Kiyoshi appeared - yet we never got to see him play in games. I would LOVE to see the anime covering the story behind Kiyoshi and the creation of the Seirin Basketball club, as well as his clash with Hanamiya Makoto (my fav!!). Come to think of it, I want them to introduce all the Crownless Generals!!

    Murasakibara and Akashi did not make major appearances in the anime - I would love to see them as well if there is a second season - THE WINTER CUP!!! XDD
