"Even if we lose by 100 points, there’s a chance a meteor will strike the other team’s bench in the last second."—Kuroko Tetsuya

Sequel to season one, Kuroko No Basket 2 does not disappoint. The new season begins with a mild time-skip after the inter-high matches. Seiren High—no longer the underdog—is now of equal footing in terms of basketball recognition. The most notable difference the time-skip offers would be the physical improvement of the players; all other improvements—such as unique skills—are publicly developed in season 2. If anything, the anime has adapted an even faster pace and incorporates an unexpectedly drastic increase in the amount of read more

The long awaited second season of Kuroko no Basuke- if you found the first season enjoyable, then I assure you... the second will not disappoint.

As expected, the second season acted as a continuation from the first, cutting straight to the Winter Cup and previewing of most of the main participating teams. If I were to describe the plot in one sentence, it would simply be 'Seirin High fights to win the Winter Cup.'

And that's all the second season needed to be as incredibly epic it was.

Was this story unique? In a way, it was. In a way, it wasn't. Kuroko no Basuke is categorized read more

Kuroko no Basket is actually one of the most exciting sports anime I've watched so far, indeed, some people may say it like "damn those characters can play fcking godly!" for most kiseki no sedai players, but that's what makes the show more interesting right?

There's a little spoiler, so read at your own risk.

Story: 7/10

The story of the season two is actually a continuation from the last episode of season 1, which is the winter cup tournament, I know that some of the games actually takes us to watch for 2-3 episodes long, some of them are fun to watch and some of them read more

I have watched the 1st Season of Kuroko no Basket, it was enjoyable as characters were building up on the series and Seirin team is still raising up. Overall, I have enjoyed the 1st season even though some episodes seemed boring.

Now for the 2nd season, I it was fair overall until the show reached the match between Seirin High and Tou team. To make long story short, the match took too many episodes (even though this was expected in a sports anime), but what I did not like is the power-up (Saiyan) style part of the play, when players were waking up and powering all read more

Recommendations

Anime: Free!
Both series is about sports (Free is swimming, knb is basketball)
and both has this group of guys, and some rivilary going on between them.
KnB is definetly more into the shounen-genre where Free! is more of a fanservice anime, but if you liked Free! you'll probably like Kuroko no basket as well!

Anime: Eyeshield 21
to avoid spoiler ill not explain every detail..
they are both comedy, decent story, hardworking, they have some kind of powers which is really far from reality and the anime should be that way "fantasy"..

Anime: Slam Dunk
Slam Dunk and Kuroko no Basket are both sports genre anime, and as you can see, both of the anime's main subject is basketball. Kuroko no Basket's similar to Slam Dunk as because the anime both shows a competition or tournament within the region. The only difference of this shows is that; Slam Dunk is more on reality, while Kuroko no Basket is not realistic, the anime shows some weird basketball technique's which is impossible for people to do unlike Slam Dunk. Another thing why I should recommend Slam Dunk is that also has a great art, great story and great soundtracks.

Anime: Haikyuu!!
Upon finishing the 2nd Season of Kuroko no Basket you may want to try something that shares the same qualities. Haikyuu!! will be the perfect choice. The main similarity here would be the two main characters. One is a natural talented athlete with all the potential in the palm of his hand while the other lacks such traits and is more of an underdog but has an undying love for the sport. An unlikely dynamic duo is born where one's weakness is covered by the other's strength. There is a strong brotherly bond among the two which plays a big part of their development. Both  read more

Anime: Prince of Tennis
its based on a sport and just like kuroko no basket the games are easy to understand but keep you on the edge of your seat, also it wouldn't be anime without awesome new tennis moves. 
reportRecommended by GreyAngel
Anime: Giant Killing
While the sports in these anime are different, they both share the same kind of values espousing the merits of team work. Both anime involve down on their luck teams getting exciting new blood to reinvigorate them. In Kuroko it's new players and in Giant Killing it's a new coach, but in both the existing players must learn to get along with the new members and bond together as a team to win. Both series also have a lot of comedic moments inbetween the intense games they play.
