I don't usually make reviews, in fact, this is my first one ever. I decided to review this OVA in particular because of one reason, it was a very simple yet enjoyable episode.

Inter-Highs aren't far away, and in order to participate on the starting lineup a certain halfwit , Kagami, has to face tough study session with Riko and the rest of the gang in order to pass the upcoming profiency test. In a matter of days, everyone tries their best to drill as much knowledge into Kagami's head.

Kagami has to overcome this "difficult" challenge in order to have a chance of defeating the read more

This is not even about the basketball. Of course here are your typical shonen overcoming for the sake of being stronger (or smarter) than before. But overall it's a poor comedy that intends to set you laughing but instead you may find yourself glancing at the clock, or at the gun on the wall. Or what you usually look at in the moments like this. Yes, you need to laugh now, at the very least, it's the only chance to laugh due to this product.

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 read more

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.
