So Teppei's intentions were revealed, but then proved to be the exact opposite the very next second. He really is a strange guy (in a good way). I feel like Seirin can accomplish anything with him watching over them. His one on one with Kagami was pretty hilarious too LoL.

I was liking Kagami's rebel mode, too bad it resolved/justified so quickly. I'm pleased with the way they handled it though, Kuroko and Kagami really are a true team.

Really looking forward to the next one, again.

Friendship building was just what I needed today. Episode was really great.
The whole dark court confession scene was good.

New Kuroko's style? can't wait to freaking see it.His passes are epic, if he add some new techniques and learn to dribble like pro, we will see someone who's actually really close with strength to Aomine + he is in team with Kagami, whos already pro and want to become even 2x stronger.Aomine, sorry, but you will lose next match :D

Winter Cup will definitely be epic.
Next episode wont add much to anything i guess eh, though im sure girls will enjoy it <.<

sdfgsahgfda JESUS CHRIST kuroko you are so incredibly cute in this episode hElp

Aww, I personally think the "make-up" scene's even better animated. Gave me some warm feels.
Next week's the summer training camp! I can't hardly wait ugh.

Anyone else giggle when Hyuuga smacked Kuroko? I want a gif of that. That was a good lol.

Anyway, i like the character development in this. Kuroko is adorable. He ran all the way and didn't know what to say, lol. Plus the bedhead in the preview is out of this world.

I like these training episodes. It's an ice break from all the intense stress of the official games.

Beautiful episode. This part of the manga is one of my favorites because it's pretty important development for Kuroko and gives us more insight about his insecurities and problems regarding his past with his former team and how he faces them with the help of his new teammates, specially Kagami.
The art during those scenes was good and watching him animated just makes me love Teppei even more.
Can't wait for episode 21

Didn't liked so much of this episode, but Kuroko it's still the most enjoyable anime airing IMO.

But I'm waiting for the next weeks...

Wow, I really liked this episode. Loads of character development. Teppei is a really caring guy and he wanted Kuroko to abandon his style and create a new one. His Teiko team seemed so OP. Kuroko's a team player when everyone else are independent and rely only on themselves.

First time that we actually see the rest of the first years playing? That was refreshing. Hyuga lecturing Kuroko was awesome. I laughed pretty hard when Hyuga smacked Kuroko. That sound effect along with Kuroko's facial expression was priceless! xD

The song that played from 15:58 is so damn good. This episode had quite a few new tracks that we haven't had before. I can't wait for the OST to come out. Kagami and Kuroko finally made up and came clean. Freakin' loved the "And you got it wrong again! You don't want to be the best. We're going to be the best!" along with Kagami's dunk.

Riko in the preview, awww yeah. >=D

Also, I see why lots of girls love this Anime lmao, but please no yaoi fantasies LOL. (saw Kuroko 'yaoi' posters at a convention the other day (puke)) :P

Great episode, the animation really improved compared to the previous episodes. By far the best episode, animation-wise and development-wise. 5/5.

As usual, can't wait for next week's episode. It's supposed to be hilarious, and IMO one of the best comedic chapters in the manga.

Lots of character development, I had to rewatch it to really understand everything that was said.

I only started watching this a few days ago, so having caught up to the most current episode and having to wait a week until the next one makes me sad. But it makes the week so much better, knowing that at the end of it I'll get to watch something good!

What a great episode! There was less focus on the actual basketball than I expected but the character development was excellent. Kuroko is so cute! I'm really glad he and Kagami were able to clear up their true intentions to one another. The scene where Takao grilled Midorima for lying about watching the championships because he lived nearby made me laugh so hard. XD

ASDFGHJKL... The feels in this episode were off the charts. I can't even believe it holy crap. Nearly squealed a few times!!! Teppei as always is freaking awesome and the character develeopment coupled with the beautiful animation was just perfect.

Kuroko's face when he figures out what he's going to do was so unbelievably cute I nearly screamed.

The scene where Kuroko talks about Teikou really made me cry. Like honestly, with that new OST track I all but died from feels. I think for once there was more emotion in the anime than there was in the manga. That's a first and I love it *u*

This was one of the most important character scenes in the series and they did it perfect. Can't wait for next week, the beach training is one of my fave scenes :) and Kuroko's bed head~

Nice bromance between Kuroko and Kagami xD

On a serious note, glad they had a man to man talk and settled the problems between them. Great to see that they have figured things out =D

Much talking but super glad that Kuroko and Kagami made up already! I was pissed off with Kagami at first when he told Kuroko not to pass the ball to him anymore!!!! Really happy that they talked it over :)

I knew what Teppei was plotting.He knew that Kuroko was relying too much on others esp.Kagami so he wanted him to improve his style of basketball or maybe totally change it.Anyways,I am glad Kuroko corrected himself.When I first heard him saying he wanted to make Kagami the best player of Japan,I just knew that something is wrong.He is lacking confidence.Now that he said he want to become the best player of Japan himself,it is much better.

Isayama Hajime should be awarded The Manga with The Highest Inconsistencies of Characters' Appearances.
He keeps performing multiple plastic surgeries on those Shingeki No Kyojin characters in a SINGLE chapter.
Yes, I've read up to the latest chapter of Shingeki No Kyojin manga.
Forced myself to read through the kidsketching chapters after the anime's ended. At least from now on, I only have to go through the hell once a month.
Patiently awaiting SNK TV/movie/OVA anime-sequel.
The 2015 SNK live-action movie would probably suck.

It was somewhat expected Tetsu of the revelation about his real motive in choosing Kagami. It was expected since he is the one who needs to play with others to show their style of basketball. u.u
I hope the Kuroko soon discover their new style of play! lol
I'm looking forward to the next episode! lol

I don't really like Teppei so far, I always hated the idea of "if you tell someone something directly IT'S POINTLESS!" and it's pretty clearly what he lives by. He could have avoided all the drama and just explained to both Kuroko and Kagami what was going on between them and what needed to happen on top of that, but instead he creates some big show out of it to make it 'meaningful'.

I get that it's anime so there needs to be a factor of entertainment, but I wish just once people would actually speak up - especially when Kuroko and Kagami are both, as characters, not that sociable, which makes it obvious neither of them would do it on their own.

Though to give the show credit, they did resolve the issues pretty fast between them compared to the pace of most shows that would make it last like 5 episodes instead. I noticed throughout that this show has a good eye for pacing things well so nothing gets old or annoying.

Aside that, if you changed Teppei's eyebrows he's just a recoloring of Kagami who smiles more often.

Good episode regardless though.

Yay for character development! It's always nice to see that Kagami and Kuroko are ~true bros~ lol.

I'm looking forward to the next one! That scene with the coach and the knife looked very interesting tho.

OH MY GOSSSSSSSSSSSSHHHHHHHH! <3 <3 <3 Kuroko my baby, you were so FREAKING ADORABLE! <3 I WANNA SCREAM!!!!!!!!

This was so much better than the manga. And the animation is good once again I think(thank God)

But seriously, that bed head in the preview, oh gosh I'm gonna faint from blood loss. *q*

EDIT: and to the person who said 'please no yaoi fantasies', you do realize that the reason this manga and anime got a big boost is BECAUSE of the of the girls with yaoi fantasies? XD

If you get a second season, its because of them.

I've got that impression too when I first saw Teppei. He seems to be insignificant if not annoying, and his body features are all too similar to Kagami. But as time goes by, his character gets more development even when compared to Kagami and Kuroko. 40 chapters after his first appearance in the manga and he's already on my absolute favorite character list. He ranked 3rd in the second character poll, and that says a lot. For now just accept his goofy character, his other side isn't revealed yet.
