Kuroko No Basket OVA - Baka Ja Katenai No Yo!

With the Winter Cup Tournament on the corner, all of the Team Seirin members cannot afford to make mistakes. By mistakes, it is the primary reason why they are in school. Studying! This OVA is an extra episode showing how the main members struggle to help their teammate pass the exam even if it is most likely impossible.

Overall: 10/10

So, this OVA is situated in between Seirin's games with Shutoku and Touou. It takes place just before the championship league during Inter-High, and it deals with Kagami cramming for a test so he'll be eligible to play in the championships. You'll also see a bit of Midorima and Kise talking about these tests as well.

I don't really recommend you watch this episode before Seirin plays Touou in the championships simply because they do show Murasakibara and Akashi in this episode, and I feel like it takes value away from their reveals in the second season.

This was funny little episode as you get to ...

Mixed Feelings
You know you're into a show when you enjoy it when it covers up topics that have nothing to do with the main premise.
This is a self-centered OVA that follows the Seirin gang stressing over helping Kagami do better in his midterms because participating in an upcoming game requires not failing your subjects. Ît just had to relate to Basketball at the end of the day. Very comedy focused episode, a lot of gags and funny character interactions too.

I mean I agree that a two-days cramming session wouldn't make much of a difference but man did I not buy the Midorima charm deus ex-machina jolt ...
