Seirin prepares to face major obstacles on their path to winning the Winter Cup, including the teams each possessing a member of the Generation of Miracles. Kuroko goes head-to-head with his old teammates once more as he attempts to show them that individual skill is not the only way to play basketball. His firm belief that his form of basketball, team play, is the right way to play the sport will clash with the talents of a perfect copy and an absolute authority.

While Kuroko tries to prove that his basketball is "right," he and the rest of Seirin High ultimately have one goal: to win the Winter Cup and overcome the strength of the Generation of Miracles, who have long dominated the scene of middle and high school basketball.

Finally... I got to finish this anime. Even few hours after I finished watching, adrenaline still overflowing inside of me. I really enjoy this season.

Even though I did enjoy reading it, I was not that hyped up for the ending... but the anime did the reverse. With solid story as the base, characters we have grown to love, animated in such an astounding way, this is one of the rare case when I feel more enjoyment with the anime.

Story: 8/10

Mixed Feelings
I'm gonna say it and i'm gonna say it now: KnB is the most predictable, shounen-like and overrated anime i have ever seen. We all know why it's rated so high: it is very enjoyable and flashy. It's like a weak version of Bleach, with more cliches and totally unjustified powers, since we're talking about basketball, not shinigamis.

The reason KnB is so popular is that it tricks the audience by creating false tension: you're there like "OMG this is so close, i don't know who will win" but actually know who's gonna win (Spoiler, but no spoiler).

And this brings us to my next problem: EVERY ...

Preliminary (4/25 eps)
This is just about the worst anime segment I've ever watched. It's astounding there are so few negative reviews.

My take on the show? Absolute rubbish. Having seen the first two seasons of Kuroko, and rating them averaging at 7, I figured this would more or less follow suit.


The first two seasons had their own overly paranormal / logically unsound plot twists/ techniques , but the characters more or less mitigated how silly it was; as we are drawn to somewhat yearn for something to happen.
