Cool. The first episode was quite entertaining. I hope to see more charas with strong personalities other than Taiga, hopefully the blond haired guy is. So, I'm looking forward for the next episode.

I want to say I'm also happy that there is no stupid fan-service in this anime : )
alot of anime these days rely on a cheap things to gain popularity .. sadly
but this show really impressed me !
it reminds me of slam dunk which I consider "legendary" and one of the best of all time .. which is great !

This is the first sport anime I've ever watched and I am impressed :) I don't care for basketball but I think this could make me change my mind :p

Kuroko is so interesting >~<
I love the coaches ability!
And cute moment when Kuroko missed and American boy saved the day.

I sense a long series coming along???

The manga is very long but someone told me they think we only get 12 anime episodes? Doesn't make sense since they can easily make 25 ep's out of what's available probably even more.

I'd predict at least 26, going by the characters featured in the opening.
If any of my posts seem odd, it's probably because I'm tired. Sorry. I have sleeping issues.

Ofc music is oookkkkk and I like the idea with top6players BUT
they are cooool from the beginning, they treat basket in anime like shaking a hand-little effort is needed to do so and the coach, big guy and kuroko bound to resamble characters from slam dunk-total rip off.And that thing with'' I did not see him..it's kinda annoying, how many times they will show it damn..
I still do not get ppl in loveee with that show. Sb gave 10/10 in review GO AWAY NOOB...
strong 7- for things I liked, written above.


You can say what you want, but please, at least do it with proper english... Or at least try to...?

----

I dismissed this anime without a second thought just because this is a sports anime... But after one of the girls in tumblr fangirled about Kuroko which made me interested in that expressionless teen...

Let's just say, I'm glad I watched it~! <3
5/5! Music seems awesome, too! Especially the one after they went "Was he in the game?!". xDD I thought my speaker broke. 8Dd

Btw, I think Kuroko's good the way he is now~! True, he's not good when it comes to earning goals, but support IS important. :3 Seriously. ^q^ ..And cool 8D

That's a great first episode. The part where the trainer just look at the "Stats" of the players was a little over the top, but I liked it. The animation is also great, I just hope the quality doesn't drop later on.

Interesting first episode, nothing more. It was extremely cliché, shonen-ish (in a bad way) and unrealistic sports-wise though. Won't watch the second ep.

I love this! The first episode's really good, and the series itself seems very promising.

Hooray for normal-ish anime! Except for that coach's numbers yeap.

Disappointing really because they went a little cliche and that disappearing thing is full of shit basically. Stupid trick in an attempts to impress those who get impressed easily.
Let's hope that the games will have more than that.

Of course this should be good, the manga is so far ahead and can keep going on, it's shounen jump we talking about.

I got a feeling of it's going to be far away until Kuroko really become useful.

The music is catching thought :)

Awesome passes are awesome; Kuroko is a interesting character and i know he will eventually develop his game, maybe after he finds someone who can predict his passes or something; but for now its still pretty good :D

He sounded Miki Shinichiro but he is not listed in the charas & VAs.

To be honest, after seeing it I gonna puke.

I wanted sth DAMN GOOD as Slam dunk or Buzzer Beater eventually BUT NOT; firstly anime about loli girls playing basketball, now this emo crap with awesome impossible things for dum kids EH.
No wonder that some ppl say that it is Ok or even better. Without seeing those 2 above the judgement is simple. But yeah wake up. Are you filled with some random ice cream or with ice cream you love?


Not gonna like...you made NO EFFING SENSE. Seriously bro, just say what you think, 1/10. I disagree and so does the majority of people but when you say so much and not make much sense, you're putting yourself out there to be trolled.

After watching it I immediately read all of the scanlated manga in 2 days... that's how hyped I am, y'all should read the manga along with the anime. There is also a few funny "bloopers" in the manga also. Either way this anime and manga somehow gives off this SWAG feeling to me.

Kuroko almost reminds me of Steve Nash... except he can't shoot... or dribble... or make a layup xD

This episode was awesome though, can't wait to see how this story develops!

I've been interested in picking up a good sport anime for a while and this came at the right time.

Basketball is always an exciting sport to see animated and it doesnt look this will disappoint. Gonna stick this one out with a smile I think. =)

Eps.1 is totally cool. Kuroko is shadow, so the stronger the light, Taiga, the shadow become blacker ..

I have better feeling about this sport anime than Area no Kishi - which turned out to be godawful later. Too bad logos for these anime more often then not present it like some bishounen series with sport as excuse to take shower together. Just dont draw bunch of guys in one rectangle of space.

Kuroko is quite an unique main character in a sport anime, nice...
but why is this anime get a late night slot? i thought it would be aired on sunday/saturday morning...
In japan, only otaku watch a late night anime, and did they expect them to be excited about sports when their sleeping habit is that bad? And there's no moe character or ecchi stuff in this anime......
i just hope it wont fail since it's quite good...

Now this is my second sport anime that I am watching right now that are airing.


me too. this is the 2nd new sports anime that I'm watching. The 1st being Area no Kishi. I like this one, but the only thing that bothers me is the shading on the characters (but I guess it's exactly like the manga, from what I've seen). I really like the story though and can't wait for more episodes :P

This show..... is like a dream come true!

Best first episode I've ever seen IMO.

I loved every second of Slam Dunk but didn't find a "true" favourite character in there. I think Kagami is going to carry the show for me, he's already a favourite. I'm already liking the MC too, he's interesting. Also, I really like how they threw away the "Ossan" Coach factor and brought in a cute yet talented high school girl. ^^

I'm loving this whole Light/Shadow idea too. I'm interested in Kagami's delinquent American past and Kuruko's flashback with his team-mates.

At this rate, this show will probably overtake Slam Dunk for me!

I love the voices of the characters esp Kuroko's! This anime will not fail to disappoint, not just cos of the voice acting but the art, animation, adrenaline-rushing opening song, and (hopefully)faithful adaptation. Hopefully they'll adapt the manga bloopers and maybe have a couple of filler eps but not too long like some animes.

Holy crap why did I not start watching this until now?! O_O
LOVE THE OP AND ED LOL (HYADAIN ♥)
Kagami's so freaking awesome LOL XD Kuroko is pretty cool too with his shadow thing going on, though you'd think that people would notice if there were only four people since he'd be the fifth "shadow" (unless he's ACTUALLY a sixth player in which case, that'd be illegal. So I'm assuming it's the former lol). Since I actually DO have some knowledge of basketball, it'll be interesting to see if they break any rules to run this show XD
SHIRTLESS BOYZ IN DA FIRST EPISODE?! OMG LOL XD I was like ... wtf man XD She's actually pretty awesome though. I wasn't expecting Kuroko to be so sucky at everything but passing, but it'll be interesting to see where this goes ...
I expect a tournament thing facing each of the schools with the Generation of Miracle players. Oh and the whole shadow/light thing at the end there ... oh my god, no wonder I thought this was yaoi from the pictures I saw omgggg lol XD

Finally started this series today.

Few things to say:


  • Taiga is a fucking boss
  • Kuroko is technically invisible
  • Riko has a fun job, for a girl that is
  • Kuroko got 0 skills
  • Oh wait. The guy is the 6th phantom, he's the pro passer
  • Epic soundtrack

    Love this series so far.
