LOVED IT! Really looking forward to seeing how Kagami and Kuroko develop as the series continues.
Seriously, I never expected a sports anime to be so good.....lol now I wish I continued to play basketball :P

Omg, that is so true. And I wondered why he looks so familiar xD
This episode was just.. hahah.. loved it. I think this anime is off onto a good start :D
I just love all those characters.. different personalities and how it all fits together. And when Kuroko appeared in front of that thug guy, I crossed my fingers and begged for Kuroko, Kise and Kagami to play together ! I haven't been this excited since.. well, since I watched Skip Beat honestly o.O
Anyone reccomends anime similar to this one? But not necessarily sports-genre-similar, more like character-personalities-similar xD
Keilis said: By all rights, this anime should be mediocre shounen material, yet I find myself craving for more every week.
I agree, I have the same with Zetman. It's not that good but I just have a very bad urge to watch it.
Nice episode overall, might be the best one so far. I loved the jokes in this one.
Looking forward to more.
I almost never read discussions after I made my post, if you want to reply PM me or post on my profile page.

"You turned me down! I didn't expect you to say yes, but I was serious!" (from Kise to Kuroko) was sooo good! Even more after I remembered the way Kuroko turned down the "proposal" at the beginning: like a woman (maybe a man also, not sure there) refuse a marriage proposal in polite way ^^
Also the "You will always stand by the light" from Kagami to Kuroko ^o^, in the sunset of course! sunset are always important in those special moments! *o*
I loved also when Kagami acted so jealous when he found Kuroko and Kise speaking together! It was like "Kuroko is mine"
They even made the threesome play together in street-basket!! I read the first 4 volumes of the manga yesterday in a manga cafe and it's not in the manga ^o^
Those guys are much more bishounen in the anime than in the manga! I know that since I only read the beginning, maybe the art will change but in the manga when they are all sweaty they look like "wild beasts" but in the anime they are so sexy ^o^
Next week, gigantic foreigner player ^^

[I still prefer KagamixKise v(^o^)v]
[EDIT]Kise looks so much like Shoutarou Fuwa from Skip Beat O_o
No worries as the current art in the manga is what was used in the anime that's why they are more bishounen in the anime. The art in the manga will eventualy improve if you read further you will find it out. (^__^)
Every week KuroBasu anime never fails to amaze me! (>0<) and Kuroko trying to be funny with his "Look at these guns" comment is really hilarious. If there will be a funny line of the week contest he surely win it. LOL
Can't wait for the next ep. looking at the preview seems that it's about the "sandwich" and "DAD". :))
The perfect post-game episode. I liked the team's steak celebration ^^. I can kind of relate to Kise's loss, I truly understand why he was crying. I know he'll grow from this and put his pride on hold for a bit to further enhance his character and game.
Also, I was waiting for some delinquents to show up, they always make the main characters look epic. I didn't expect Kise, Kagami and Kuroku to play together so soon though. It was a huge tease, I really wish they could be on the same team but then again, it would be too easy. I like how the three of them became somewhat closer friends this episode, rivalries with people you respect and acknowledge are the best.
Haha, I bet that restaurant would never advertise free food again. xD
And omg, I finally got to see Kuroko, Kise and Kagami playing together! *-* Gaahh, it was so EPIC.
Loved them all in this ep xD Awesome and funny as usual! :D
Green guy (Mori ... something) is pretty interesting. Super superstitious (SUTEKI STEAK WAS AWESOME) and he's the "shooter" of the group. Doesn't seem like he and Kuroko get along. I liked Kuroko's conversation with Kise (FAVE ♥), about middle school basketball and him disappearing and how winning isn't everything etc. Was that seriously his first time losing? Seems plausible, which is why it hurt him so much ...
Seriously though, Kuroko Kagami Kise (all K starts :O) is an epic team. EPIC O_O
What is that light on Kise walking away?! T_T Do we not get to see him anymore?! WHYYYY?!?!??! *RAGE*
Also that last bit ... I was like IS THIS A CONFESSION SCENE OR WHAT. SERIOUSLY. OMG O_O Well when it was talking about them "departing ways after they changed" ... seriously, it's like a romance show here XD (Kuroko's deadpan snark humour though ... CHECK OUT THESE GUNS?! OTL)
EDIT: Oh yea I forgot to mention ... Kise kind of reminds me of Kida sometimes ... (looks only though XD They've both got the blond hair and earring thing going on lol)
Awesome episode for the comic relief.
I really enjoyed the match, although I've cheered for the opponent team. YESYESYES I diiiid. C'mon this is only the fifth episode and they are winning the game already? I've wished for a bigger challenge, for them to lose and come back stronger. Meh.
But what I liked was that the other team members finally got some cameo. The Kagame-Kuroko protagonism was alienating me from the rest. And they were great!
Last but not least, the two of them playing along with Kise was GREEEAT. ^w^
Seriously though, how could the author not realize his work was so choke full of shounen-ai themes and double-entendres ("proposal", "turn me down", "I'll be your shadow, you'll be the light" etc.).
Oh my god.
