This season.........THIS FREAKING SEASON. Wow I enjoyed the first season but this season was just amazing. Let's start with what we already know, Kuroko no basket is a sport shounen anime that has to do with basketball. This season left off right where season 1 left off with Kuroko and the rest of the Seirin basketball team entering the winter cup. That one statement alone is the foundation for much of this season's plot. In the transition between seasons the characters have grown and improved a lot for this big tournament after a blow out loss. So what did I think? Well I have to read more

I enjoyed watching KNB season 1, but season 2 was a great disappointment.

Story: This is the continuation of season 1, in season 1 they showed us how Kuroko play and the things about the Generation of Miracles, it was so cool. But season 2 is a big disappointment.
Season 2 made it look like Kagami is the main protagonist and not Kuroko. It became more about Kagami and how great he is and that he could even surpass the GoM, it became more about Kagami's basketball instead of Kuroko's. Instead of focusing on Kuroko's unique way of playing basketball they focused on Kagami and made Kuroko read more

Kuroko no Basket (Kuroko's Basketball) is without a doubt, the most popular sports anime and this is the second installment in the anime series, Kuroko no Basket Second Season.

The second season of Kuroko no Basket starts off from where it left in the first season : The Inter High School Competition is over and our favorite Basketball team, Seirin is preparing for the upcoming Winter Cup, which has become the biggest Interschool Basket ball competition in the country. It covers the preliminaries and the first few rounds of the Winter Cup, a national level Basketball tournament.

Story - 7/10

"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

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.

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.
