Synopsis

Teikou Middle School is famous for its highly renowned basketball team, which produced the famed "Generation of Miracles": a team of five prodigies, each with their own unique abilities, considered to be undefeatable by the time they became third years. However, blinded by pride, they split up, entering different high schools upon graduation.

Taiga Kagami, having just returned from America, joins the basketball team at Seirin High School in search of strong team members. There, he finds Tetsuya Kuroko, a seemingly unimpressive player, only for Kagami to find out that Kuroko was the "Phantom Sixth Member" of the Generation of Miracles: an invisible player who used his impeccable passing skills to support the team from the shadows. Together, they resolve to defeat the Generation of Miracles and make the Seirin basketball team the best in Japan.

Just finished Kuroko No Basket manga …..this is probably the first ever sports manga I have ever read and have to say…

It provided me with a pleasant surprise, this particular series just opened my eyes to what I was missing, it just drew me in from the first chapter. The character design is well done, this series is much more than just basketball and some crazy guys playing sports.

Each of the characters are actually well developed and you actually end up learning a huge lot about each of them, from personality to reasons why they enjoy the game and what gives them that extra read more

I will make my review as short & informative as possible.

Will divide into 2 parts :

First Part :- Touhou Defeat

Manga was great till this part. As I did not read this manga during its official publishing period, I read through everything in one go. Things were really packed and twisted during this part and after that defeat, it literally touched heart. From character development to story-line, side characters; everything felt very close. They used almost every character during this part and I must say mangaka used it PERFECTLY!! Things were so simple and great that mangaka didn't need anyone to explain the situation read more

Preliminary
Story: Kuroko no Basuke (Kuroko's Basketball) to sum it up without spoilers is a basketball manga about a boy named Kuroko Tetsuya wanting to show people, the "Generations of Miracles" (a group of Kuroko's previous team-mates) in particular his way of basketball, hence the title Kuroko no Basuke. Reading into it you'll discover how deep the plot gets as you go along introducing new characters and threats to Kuroko's basketball team Seirin, the deuteragonist: Kagami Taiga is "the light that illuminates Kuroko" meaning he is the person who Kuroko practises with and makes plays with. Kagami himself wants to defeat every single player of the read more

Preliminary
When a manga is set in the real world with no supernatural elements, that is how it should be kept... REAL! When a professional athlete in the real word goes through an entire career without ever experiencing "the zone", this manga has teams full of high school kids who enter it in every game, one did it for like 3 games straight, with one of them doing it four times, there's another one who can do it at will and they are capable of plays that would make Michael Jordan look like a kid with special needs. They speak of an unknown character for read more
