That was an action packed episode! Been a long time since I had suspense from a sports anime!

This was so perfect. The only thing that I don't get is why Kise didn't get a foul... but I guess their team won't be good without him, so they just disregarded it.

Nice combi, Kuroko and Kagami!

Wow best episode so far by miles. Been ages since I was on the edge of my seat in a Sports anime but I was cheering on Kuroko and Taiga the whole way.

What a high scoring game though, episode was a joy to watch on the whole as it shows that even the second years in their team are really good, especially their captain. At least he deserves that title it seems which was awesome.

5/5, would rate it 6 if I could lol.

the couch said that they would go into overtime if the time ran out and they still tied
overtime in a practice game ?
that's new for me but I guess it's optional if both teams wants to win and outscore the other .

great Ep loved the fast pace and music =)

I was a hater last week but got damn this episode was good as fuck.

I'm glad all the players got their own unique skills.

The only thing i want from Kuroko is i want him be a damn Allen Iverson dribbler and be able to make lay ups.

I just know the episode made me more excited to watch the NBA playoffs today.

Well i dont read the manga are they staying true to the real story? I hope they are because the manga is still going on.

It's nice to see the other players get some notice, even if not much. There's some odd positioning going on, but the added diversity made the game much more entertaining.

All right, 5/5 - no point in describing the indescribable. It was just a one bloody good episode.

I loved this episode, I've been wanting the enjoyment and suspense from a good sports anime for a long time and I've finally found an anime which gives both :)

Even though they won they still have a long way to go, I hope Kurokochi will improve the coming episodes so he'll be able to help the team even more. And maybe he'll be able to work on his ability so the other players won't get used to it after 40 minutes... anyway I think it's awesome and can't wait for the next episode.
According to the preview


5/5

Enjoyment is a way to say do you like the series or not. Quality is way to say is the series good or bad.

"I liked it therefore it is good." <- One of the most fucked up ways to think.

Was it even possible to get a scrap that big enough to make him bleed that much...? Based on the scene, Kise didn't even hit his forehead, just his cheek/face, so he must have gotten it when he fell after getting knocked out by the hit but was that even possible to bleed that much?

This episode was incredible. Absolutely loved it; I was in suspense the entire time. Everything, from Kuroko getting hit in the face and coming back to win it with Kagami, to the startling development that there are actually good players on the team besides Kagami and Kuroko! I was glued to the screen the entire episode. Honestly, if there were more episodes out, I would've just marathoned them immediately, and I'm not a marathon guy at all. This was my favorite episode out of any of the spring anime I've seen so far. Just wow.

Ah, I love sports anime and manga. There's always time to stop and have a conversation in the middle of a game.

Pfffft, is a fujoshi drawing the endcards or something? 3 of 4 have been blatant fangirl bait. xP

No storyline differences so far.

Wow, what an intense episode. Simply amazing.

It was great to see the rest of the Seirin squad introduced in this episode, each one having their own quirks and skill set, and then show that they are more than capable of holding their own without Kuroko.

And the pacing was great too. I couldn't believe that by the end of the first half of the episode, they were still in the second quarter.

To put it in perspective, I enjoyed watching the basketball in this episode more than any one of the NBA playoff games I watched so far today. This sadly coming from a Knicks fan =(

With Kagami on top and Kuroko on bottom, that was pretty epic. We need more action like that.

Freaking hell, this episode was simply amazing. Action packed and so intense, my gawd. Kuroko getting hit by Kise's fist must have been brutal, damn. Seemed really serious since Kuroko was trying so hard to stand and move normally, also loved his 'good morning' xD. Absolutely loved the scene when the OP song played when Seirin were catching up. Also, another member of Generation of Miracle briefly appeared.

The captain's 'true colours' was unexpectedly epic when he went all out. Also loved how the coach started naming the other Seirin players and describing them. The Kuroko and Kagami duo is simply unbeatable though. I can't get enough of the animation of Kuroko's passes and good to see them actually working better with coordination. Kise was pretty crazy when he got really serious but damn that last scene was too good, Kagami scoring a buzzer beater awww yeaaaah! >=D Kise's 'this can't be happening' face was hilarious LOL.

5/5

Remember that Kise IS stronger than Kagami? If Kagami's strong already, then what is Kise? OTL

And it looks like he fell on his head, the way he slowly turns.

...Nice picture in the end. :3

I like the series more with each episode, which is surprising considering this is the first sports anime I've watched. XD The game was so exciting! Once Kuroko was hit, I thought it was over for Seirin but I'm glad they were able to make a comeback. I hope this isn't the last we see of Kise, but at least he made a brief appearance in the next episode preview. Oh and the image after the preview was too cute! XD

my first impression anime was fantastic it has a good vibe to it good plot, up-to-date quality i just have a few criticism about the basketball itself every basketball player has a poistion and kuroko has none and i hope the wikia is lying you cant just run around the court with no position and kagami plays more like a smal foward than powerfoward like lebron james, kevin durant dunking on people more offensive than defence. power foward are the ones that screen and defend most of the time and get rebounds. for a person that dosnt watch that much basketball knows these basic principles and i hope they do small adjustment like kagami changes to powerfoward/smallfoward in the manga overall this anime is great kuroko plays extactly like ranjo randon great passes i hope he learns to do layup, dribble eventually every basketball play must of have these skills and score and i also like to add that kagami should of been a small foward since they are one that dunk on people shoot 3 pointer score 20 points in a game since he still is in highschool but i dont know that is to much realism for an anime other than that great anime

Enjoyable, but I was kind of hoping they wouldn't win.
I am loving that the second years; glad they were finally properly introduced.

Yes, it stayed true to it. It's just a lot faster in comparison.
You know how basketball manga is, even one play can take a whole episode.

It looks like some of you got pretty disturbed by the see-you-next-week picture. :3

Though I pretty like BL, I didn't even notice the shounen-ai vibe from the picture until about several minutes or so. I even curiously searched it out on google afterwards. <--??

So I'm impressed by the non-BL-lovers to notice them so fast!!!

But I think it doesn't even count as shounen-ai. Okay I admit it maybe does, but for me it's just a cute scene of two friends where one friendly-hug (or lift) the other. Kuroko is so damn cuuuute, I as a girl would also hug him <3. For me it's hardly shounen-ai.... xDDD

Compared to ecchi animes where there're boobs and panties every damn episodes (I'm exaggerating of course), Shounen-ai-undertoned animes only show not more than a glimpse of it.

That makes me wonder why just because of one picture, people would drop an interesting anime such as this.

I myself, dislike ecchi anime, but I still watch Medaka Box (An ecchi-genred action anime) cause I'm looking forward to it's action. Yet when the boobie showing scene showed up, I didn't yuck-ed at it or anything. I just ignored it. Simple.

Sorry for the bad English btw
