Seirin High School's Basketball Team is looking for new talent to join them as they enter their second year of operation. While they struggle to increase their numbers, freshmen recruits Taiga Kagami and Tetsuya Kuroko compensate for it in terms of quality. Kagami is a basketball prodigy hailing from America, while Kuroko's less-than-average physique conceals the fact that he was part of Teikou Middle School's famous "Generation of Miracles" Basketball Team.

After training to become a more cohesive team, Seirin faces a major setback during the Interhigh championship when it faces off against Touou Academy—the new home of Kuroko's former teammate Daiki Aomine. Jaded by the lack of competition, Aomine single-handedly overwhelms Kagami and Kuroko's newfound "light and shadow" partnership, claiming that they will never be able to surpass him or his "light."

Now that the Winter Cup has rolled around, the reignited Seirin is out for vengeance against Touou. Although the team has been training relentlessly, it may not be enough to take down their rival, as Aomine carefully begins to see through Kuroko and Kagami's tricks.

Whether this movie can be considered good or bad heavily depends on your reasons for watching it.
Watch it if:
- You love KnB so you're always happy with new content.
- You kind of forgot what happened in S1 and you want to refresh your memory.
- You're not really interested in KnB, but want to know the main events.
- You want to skip a season for some freaking reason.

Other than those, I recommend you to watch the actual series instead, or don't watch the movie at all. After all, it's a recap of the first season, so as a 'stand alone' it's pretty crappy.

Kuroko No Basket Movies 1 2 3

1. Movie 1 Winter Cup Soushuuhen - Kage to Hikari
2. Movie 2 Winter Cup Soushuuhen - Namida no Saki e
3. Movie 3 Winter Cup Soushuuhen - Tobira no Mukou

Movie one, two, and three is a summarize version of Season one, two, and three. Though unlike the Season one series where it tackles first the plays Seirin made in order to participate in the Winter Cup and Season 2 moving on to the tournament itself, the Movies focuses on the Winter Cup alone and show only a bit of introduction from the Season one series. The movies consist of the ...

Disclaimer: spoilers ahead.

First of all, if you're coming here straight after season 1 then don't bother. I don't know why it's not stated anywhere on this page, but this highlights movie features half of season two, heavy with plot spoilers that should be avoided until you watch the second season. Which that out of the way, let's start.

Say in short, this is a highlights compilation that follows the two games against Aomine from season one and season two, and as we know, the games span multiple episodes and a movie format is just the perfect take on how to screen one of them. No commercial ...
