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

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
Note: Some minor spoilers. Beware.

The summary on MAL is a little confusing so I'll try my best to make a more coherent one.

In middle school, there was a certain basketball team whose players had immense talent. This caused them to be dubbed the "Generation of Miracles". After finishing middle school, they all went their seperate ways but talk remained of a mystery 'phantom player', their 6th man.
The story starts with Kagami Taiga, a returning student joining the Seirin high school basketball team. Another person who joins is Tetsuya Kuroko. He's weak, can't shoot and has no presence on the court but herein lies his read more
