After winning a fierce game against Yosen High, Seirin High successfully advances on to the semifinals of the Winter Cup. They continue to aim to become the champions, but have to face many powerful opponents along the way.
******this review contain some spoilers ******
-I gave all 3 seasons a score of "1"
- This anime is really really horrible
Nothing can describe my hatred for this anime
-I used to love this anime (in fact like)
Why i gave such a score?
- It's too cliche this anime is called kuroko no basket, not Akashi no basket or GOM no basket.
-I watch the same thing for 75 times.
-I hate kuroko
-The author really using any method to make kuroko win the winter cup
Nothing much to say as you guys can predict. As usual the characters are competing against each other in basketball and there's always a winner and loser. Without fail kuroko is gonna win in the end. And I'm right! When they lose they learn something then then they win again. This goes on and on.
Not much to say since the art is normal. Just that I really don't understand WHAT in the world is the black shadow under their neck? It's shadow? No, it has strips. Are they zebras?....
The bgm is good. It makes people goes "thump thump" But not for me! Since i already know the fact that Seirin is gonna win in the end. In my opinion this anime's soundtrack is getting worse and worse. I do like that opening in season 1 though.
Honestly I like Aomine and Kise a lot. But nothing is gonna change this "1". Kuroko is acting like he is the boss and knows everything. When he lose he cry . If not in game, the last minute he will thought of something which lead seirin to victory. If not, he will rely on his teammates . Then they win! He act as if seirin will not win if he is not there. And the way he play basketball and shoot is really complicating , for example : phantom shot , misdirection and worst lack of presence. All these doesn't make sense at all! I know this is shounen anime but ain't this abit too much? Why not put a "magic" or "super power" under the tag? This author is really trying to come up with all shorts of funny move and shoots to make seirin win.
For the whole character of this anime. They are already tired but they still have the strength to enter zone to run,shoot,block and win. What logic is this?...
As stated from above this anime has no logic. I came here to watch "sports" anime and not "magic" or "super power" anime.
I realized something about this anime which really pissed me off. Which is whenever 1 team had a goal, the other team will hype up and say somethings then the next time the team (that didn't get the ball previously)
will surely get the ball and will goal. A very good example: Teppei is blocking someone under the net. He failed. Then next time round there's a rebound he will surely get the ball and score.
And the score is either 1 point away from each other or many points away from each other (around 20-100 points)
This anime has a logic of "a mountain has a mountain taller than it" In this case means that rakuzan enter zone 1st. But that is not the end! Because there is seirin in zone as well! Although we all know the fact that rakuzan is already very powerful.
Overall, this is horrible. So i shall not waste so much of my time writing a view on this anime. So horrible that will surely gonna trauma my brain. read more
At this point, Kuroko no Basket (Kuroko’s Basketball) is a series that needs no introduction. After two seasons of competitive gameplay, we have the third and final season to conclude the entire story based off the manga written by Tadatoshi Fujimaki. If you’re really anxious to see how the Winter Cup will be decided and who will earn the ultimate glory, then this is a must-see for KnB fans. Otherwise, I confess to myself that the third season is a bit of a hit or miss.
For starters, the third season still takes place in the same setting with Seirin High as the main focus. Not only is Kuroko, one of the legendary Generation of Miracles, on the team but there’s also much we learn about the rest of his former teammates.
The third season already establishes the foundations of basketball, the most prominent players, and what’s at stake. As the previous seasons introduced most of the prominent rivals, there’s little need to bring new challengers. As such, expect this season to focus more on the existing players; characters such as the Generation of Miracles and Uncrowned Kings from Rakuzan. There’s also a good amount of history from behind the scenes for the main supporting players as well. And that’s really something to say about the show. Kuroko no Basket approaches its premise to characterize its players especially for the ones that the audience may care about the most. Other than Kuroko, we have the distinctive Generation of Miracles. We find out much more about them in ways that really makes us understand them beyond just on the court. It also gives the audience as a sense of appreciation for the reasons that Kuroko left behind his former team and is now part of Seirin High.
As with any competitive sport, basketball is no exception to rivalries. Early on the show, we can easily see rivalries that go head in head on the court. These include Kise Ryouta vs Shogo Haizaki, Seijuro Akashi vs. Shintaro Midorima, and later on Seirin vs. Rakuzen. A good portion of these matches are intimidating. And sticking with its shounen style, the show still pulls out its supernatural-like gimmicks with the players’ moves. Kise’s copycat and Akashi’s Emperor Eye are prime examples of this as we see how they can influence the outcome of a game. As much as this can be appealing, it really comes off as edgy and unrealistic. There’s little to relate with and most of the time, this season attempts to wow the audience with diehard efforts. By this time, it’s really repetitive and doesn’t bring much with these establishes gimmicks. The plus side of this might be the fact that the show still retains its electrifying energy. After all, basketball is a game that requires both the individual and collective effort of a team to succeed. And as one of the sports that requires constant movement on the court, the show creates its full throttle mood with delicacy.
I mentioned this before but Kuroko no Basket has a lot of story written into each game. Players facing off often had a history in some way or form with one another. This doesn’t just include rivalries but friendships as well. For instance, Shintaro’s decision to join Shutoku High is influenced by his teammate, Kazunari Takao. Some episodes reveals more about each of the prominent players through its in-game storytelling. At the same time, it spawns emotions to connect players’ dedications and their reasons to play in the first place. So in essence, you could say that the show’s characters are all like chapters of a story with each episode progressing that said story. However, some of these stories aren’t what can be really memorable. As Kagami already had plenty of development, there’s little more to improve his character. Instead, do expect a bit more focus on some of its other supporting characters with their own stories.
Kuroko no Basket is not a drama show. However, the drama it attempts to craft go in a lot of directions. I think the show at times is really trying to send a message of some sorts towards the audience. How does it try to get the message across? With a lot of intention to persuade the audience for what the players are trying to accomplish, the series really at time feels like it’s a sermon. Not that the speeches are anything malicious or in that particular way, but the series itself really should do more than just go with the usual cliché dialogues. However, I do give some praise to the characters’ performances throughout the majority of this season. On or off the court, it’s entrancing to see how they react and play with engaging momentum.
For the third time in a row, Production I.G. takes the task to produce a good quality show with its artwork style. Character designs and expression are well decorated on most terms to fit with their personalities. Each school that plays in this season also has its own distinctive uniforms that stands out in their own way. However, the most promising technical aspect is the shounen-style coordination of the gameplay. Kuroko no Basket is always known to pull out crazy moves that is beyond normal human comprehension. So what should you expect? The same intense elements of what you should be used to from the previous seasons. And that would be an excitement of powerful and compelling movements with clever camera angles, facial expressions, and emotional attachment. It communicates its message to the audience at how weak or strong a team is both individually, or in other cases, the players individually.
Soundtrack relies mostly on itself to adapt the gameplay when it needs to be. The most noticeable feature includes thrilling timings when significant moves are made where the soundtrack plays a key role. Character voice mannerisms also retains its expectations although nothing really home to write home about compared to its OST. And on a more decorative aspect, there are various OP and ED theme songs that reflect the momentum of the third season.
It’s been a long ride. With over 70 episodes, various OVAs, and a franchise that makes basketball looks like a battlefield, you could say that the destination has finally be reached with everything it had to offer. Unfortunately, the third season isn’t a much improvement from before and the final game has a lot of the usual generic themes written in like a textbook. But is it worth watching in the end? I’d still say yes especially for fans eager to see who will win the Winter Cup. Anyone who is interested at learning more about the Generation of Miracles will also be in for a treat; despite the bit of rush in content based on the manga. It’s still a sensational feeling to realize the destination has finally been reached though. read more
Kuroko no Basket is back with its third season, more heated, cheesy and fun than ever before.
Kuroko no Basket has always been a difficult series for me to judge, on one hand it is extremely fun to watch and can really get your blood pumping, on the other hand it is extremely cheesy and predictable making you question yourself for enjoying it, one might say you don't have to feel guilty about pleasures, and this is definitely the case for the third and strongest season of the franchise (so far).
This season covers the entire Middle School arc of the Teiko guys and the rest of the Winter Cup, nothing else is added and if you watched the previous seasons you know what you are in for, cheesy basketball matches with super powers and light hearted comedic relief.
The art in this show is a very subjective matter and might differ from person to person, I myself am not a big fan of overly handsome faces since they somewhat ruin the immersion of most shows, but in this case it actually works with the story since most of the main characters are mentioned to be exceptionally handsome many times over the course of the series.
The animation is good, it serves its purpose and really shines when it has to, super powers look fluid as always and the basket looks like shit, as always.
What am I even judging these things for? The soundtrack of the show, OP's and ED's aside is nothing special, repetitive electronic beats, for the most part. Only in very few scenes does the soundtrack really stand out, the voice acting however, is great, which has to be expected with a cast like this and therefore saves some points.
Not complex, but not boring either. The character interactions are the strong point of the series and can make a long drawn out match refreshing and hype you up for the next minutes of the match, however none of the characters really stand out on their own and it really is the chemistry that seals the deal.
Kuroko no Basket remains one of my favorite modern sports anime with its fun and wide cast of characters, the matches in the third season were fun to watch and despite dragging on for far longer than in the previous seasons remained exciting and you wanted to keep watching for more than the obvious outcome.
At the end I want to lay very heavy emphasis on how predictable this series is if you have seen sports anime previously to watching this, or any anime really. The plot is not this series strong point and not what you should be watching it for, watch it for the character interactions and amazing voice acting.
First of all, I will clear things out by saying, that I am a big fan of season 1 & 2 of this anime series. I liked almost everthing about those two anime. Eventhough with such a great prequels the third season felt a bit too repetitive. While watching this anime I felt like I have watched the same things in season one & two. The thing that I loved about the first two seasons was character development which was somewhat missing in season 3. The story is good and it give the whole in depth backstory of all the players. This backstory helps viewer understand why kuroko is so passionate about basketball. Plot of the story is also good which helps the anime to get viewer interested and watch it untill the end. Overall I would say the anime doesn't live upto the expectation that the viewers or I would say I personally had for this anime. In the end, I would say if you are fan of this anime series you should watch it but don't keep your expectations too high.read more
