Synopsis

Talk about games being called unexpectedly! Hasegawa Subaru joined the basketball club at Nanashiba High, only to have his hopes dashed when the teams' play is suspended after the captain is suspected of having inappropriate feelings for the coach's underage daughter. Blindsided and blocked by bad luck, Subaru expectedly finds an opening for his talent with the hoops when his aunt asks him to take on the task of coaching a young girls' basketball club—a Ro-Kyu-Bu!. But can a superstar wannabe find true satisfaction while playing sixth man to a team of five girls?

I'm somewhat perplexed by the number of 6's and 7's this anime is receiving. I was initially reluctant to watch this anime because of the score, but I'm glad I committed in the end.

Ro-kyu-bu is a loli/sports anime with a barebones plot and relatively static characters. While some might consider this points to criticize the anime on, I would like to point to the genre of the piece and remind everyone why we are watching this anime. To learn more about basketball? I should hope not. Sports anime is almost always a terrible representation of the actual sport itself. I will smack anyone who dares read more

When lolis and basketball are combined, the result isn't as bad as one might expect. Although it's far from great Ro-Kyu-Bu is a charming series.

If you are looking an anime that is heavily focused on basketball then you are looking in the wrong place. Basketball is simply the activity which brings everyone together. However the series does lack a solid plot because the focus is on the characters themselves making it feel like a slice of life some of the time. The series is character driven and the majority of this anime is spent developing the characters, which is okay but it makes it hard read more

When i dug into this show, not long ago, i was cautious due to the hate it got, as a Loli anime of course - this is to be expected. Thus forth, if you're completely against the genre, don't watch it just to rant!

Anyway, moving onto the show, contrary to popular opinion and the beginning in particular, this anime encompasses a nice medium between the Moe, and the sport at hand: basketball of course! It is to be expected then that since there is a division between genres, it's a laid back show, in fact it throws a degree of intimacy into the mix with read more

Ro-Kyu-Bu was an entertaining enough series though the plot was lack luster, and the humor was a bit hit or miss. The artwork was typical of a slice of life anime and lacked originality, though the quality was good.

The plot was straight forward enough and lacked depth, though the direction was good and made for a heart warming story at times. However, as the series progressed it became apparent that the linear direction of the series will cause viewers to lose interest, and I doubt I could sit through more than a few episodes at a time before becoming bored with lack luster read more

Recommendations

Girls taking recreational activities in a school setting. Sparkling shining exciting fun enjoyable moment fun of fun girl fun life. Incite pedophilia, increase heart rate and make you go all Humbert Humbert. Apply to only men and lesbians.
Mood, tone, cast, genre, formula, target, how god classify this show are all overly similar. True, the degree of pedoness, funniness, ecchiness and any-ness may vary, but iPhone 1,2,3,4,5,6 or Nokia 1280 all can make a phone call.
Both are shows involving a group of little girls who are good friends and look out for each other.
Moe girls doing cute things. Both of these series focuses the will to become an official group that people are willing to recognize in the realm of sports and music. There are some hints of romance in Ro-Kyu-Bu! but both series have comedy and drama.
Replace Bishonen playing basket ball with Lolis playing basket ball
Yep, easy as that...
Both animes have basketball centered and have got characters with intense will to play/win. The biggest difference is probably that Ro-Kyu-Bu! has 'young' girls as main characters, whereas Kuroko no Basuke has mostly high school guys as main characters. Both have outstanding art!
Simmilar cercumstance Main guy is forced into a position to look after a small group of girls.
