Synopsis

Teikou Middle School basketball club: an incredibly strong team with over one hundred members and three consecutive championship wins. Amongst their brilliant record, was a generation of five prodigies known as the "Generation of Miracles." However, there was a strange rumour concerning the Generation of Miracles about one more player recognized by the five prodigies... a Phantom Sixth Player.

When Kagami Taiga joins Seirin High School's basketball team, he meets Kuroko Tetsuya, a horrendously bad player. Kagami is shocked to find out that Kuroko is the rumored sixth man of the Generation of Miracles. Not only is Kuroko terrible at everything from dribbling to shooting, he lacks so much presence on the court that at times people even forget he's playing. But during games Kuroko uses that lack of presence to his advantage, specializing in passing the ball to stronger players. In order to become the best player in Japan, Kagami agrees to team up with Kuroko to defeat the other members of the Generation of Miracles.

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

Simply Put: this is the supernatural version of Slam Dunk (and a much worse basketball manga)

The first half of manga was decent; it felt like a sport manga to read with teamwork and no supernatural powers. It was comparable to Slam Dunk. I'd have definitely gave a much higher rating if the manga stayed like this.

Then.... there came these supernatural characters who can break the backboard (it's tens of times harder to break breakaway rim which are used recently), who never missed a shot, who copies his opponent's move in 2 seconds... etc..)
So likely.. high school students who are ten times better than top NBA 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
