Kuroko's back-story is a bit cliche, but oh well. The match was kinda boring with that "invisible" thing going on and everybody being shocked and doing nothing. Hope that it improves in the second match.

I usually don't mind sports anime, but this one just caught my attention.

The animation & music is pretty good, the characters seem a bit shallow but since this is the first episode, I guess we'll learn much more about them and their past later on.
Kuroko seems the most interesting character to me right now (which is unusal, most of the times I like supporting characters much more then protagonists in shonen anime). Too bad the female cast is limited, but that's expected from a sports anime.

Overall, a very promising beginning

I entirely started watching it for Coach and ended up getting really into the show as a whole. Coach is still the best though. Just wait till you get to the episode she's training them in the pool, or the hopefully-someday-animated scene here

Man, that first episode was amazing.. I think the anime got me. Kuroko is amazing, though I hope he gets a bit better at least at throwing a shot :P

And the opening song is really cool too :D

One of the best animes that I watched recently... I love the main character Kuroko and Kagami. And the right mix of comedy action and romance(romance is a little bit) :3

I LIKE this Anime. At first I did ignore this because I'm not into a sports genre anime and I have seen many basketball animes, but i enjoy it since i try to watch and also because I become curious of what people recommend me and as a see in the net :)

They have great Opening song. Love it! O///O

And Kuroko is Adorable! :3

5/5 for sure. That was really fun to watch. It's pretty cute and funny on the most part. It's weird how similar this is with Free! like seriously. I'm similar to Kuroko in terms of sports. I'm better as a shadow than a light. :P


watch nodame cantabile

recommend me anything!

Finally started the anime after read up to where season 1 ended in the manga.And I'm really glad it was faithfully to the manga.

Interesting to finally see Kuroko's misdirection.

Was laughing at he's failed attempt at the shot.

Funny to see Kagami sitting where Kuroko is already seated,I remember that running gag from the manga XD.

Kuroko says Kagami is his light and that he's Kagami's shadow.And that the brighter the light the bigger the shadow becomes,and tells Kagami that he make him #1 in Japan.

Liked the OP and thought the ED was alright.Everyone sounds different from what I imagined but still like the seiyuu cast though.

As for the preview for next episode,seems we'll be meeting a member of the Generation of Miracles already.

Mangaka is surely a "Slam Dunk" fan). But, this doesn't seem like a rip off. Not bad at all.

I liked this first episode a lot. Music was great and the characters seem very interesting. Kuroko is also not the usual overpowered MC that I'm used to seeing. Production I.G. is doing a great job with the animation as well.

Really like the OP. The contrast between Kuroko and Kagami reminds me of Haru and Rin from "Free!". Though not a big sports fan, I look forward to watching more of this.

That was great :D... I didn't think I'd like it that much, can't wait to watch more... I thought I'd get irritated because when I watch subbed anime I tend to lose track of what's happening... even though I can read really fast, it's weird... but good pacing.

I like both Kuroko and Kagami so far... (weird I even remember their names, I never seem to do so with the Japanese audio)

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'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 sir are a real winer. all right. we understand you dont like it. and, lol, why do you have 2 comments. what i dictate from this is that you didnt even watch it before you started complaining. troll. well it is your opinion so hate if you got to hate >:D(sry ik this is old but i wanted to say something)

As of now, please try to refrain from looking at MAL. its a complete mess right now T-T
People of anime have whooped, roasted, beaten, and tamed my ass. I have learned my ways and will never speak that horrible word. But, believe me, MY DAY OF VENGEANCE SHALL COME(please dont take this seriously, just "trying" to be funny lol

I generally never watch sports anime so we'll see where this goes and if I enjoy it or not. I wasn't terribly excited over this first episode, but it certainly seems interesting so far. Kuroko seems destined to be a super ace based on what I've seen so far.

Fuck, that was a pretty amazing start. Been waiting for ages to watch this and finally... I'm absolutely not disappointed. I laughed quite a lot with Kuroko's reactions to Kagami. He's not scared of him at all! lmfao. Very good first episode.

OP got me pretty hype for the episode! Also ED is catchy!

So the Generation of Miracles is a group of overpowered basketball players.
With the help of Coach Riko Aida, Taiga Kagami and Tetsuya Kuroko will rule the basketball world.

But as for now, Kagami's a dick to the weak and Kuroko's pretty funny and also freakin' invisible.
Good thing the coach is there, to give us some exposition on body numbers and Kuroko's misdirection powers.

Lol, Kuroko sucks a lot at basketball, but those passes are amazing.
Kagami's power will help complement Kuroko's weaknesses.

Can't wait to see more plays against even stronger opponents.
I’m always searching for something, for someone. This feeling has possessed me I think, from that day… That day when the stars came falling.

Omg this is great! I'm going to really enjoy this.

Kuroko is really cute, and he's got that godly pass. I love how nobody notices him, he got that invisible power, he better take advantage of that. (Well it seems he already has)

I love Taiga, he's such an ass and I'm enjoying it. :3

I'm not a sports person at all, and I know nothing about basketball, but I know I'm going to love this. ^_^

I think it's an alright first episode, I mean i've seen better first episodes. But i've been hearing lots of good things about this series, so I'm going to continue watching it. Looks like it's gonna get more cool! Cant wait to see more of Kuroko playing!

Okay so I watched the first 2 seasons some time ago, and now that the 3rd season is out, time to rewatch this awesome anime.

Lol I did not remember that Kagami had that strong and intimidating aura at the registration. They had a quick match, first year against second year and we saw Kagami's and Kuroko's basic skills. The duo starts to bond together from here onward. Kagami being that arrogant in the beginning makes me laugh. He will have developed a lot of insight judging by his behaviour now.

I look forward to see Kagami becoming even bigger beast once again.
