Yeah, I'm so happy! I was waiting for this!
Kuroko No Basket is going to end soon, WSJ needs to pump up its new promising sports manga...
I can't wait *w*
(I hope they'll keep the same seiyuu of the Vomic for Shouyou and Tobio...they were perfect!)


Confirmation? Or just speculation?

I answered you on Kuroko No Basket's page, we're off topic.

Soo.. I'll ask again because nobody answered.

Is there any romance?

Hohoho. You know what? After reading the latest chapters, I think there might be some kind of romantic subplot.

If you were talking about "boyxgirl" romance, I mean.
Anyone surprised? è.é

Pretty boring for a sports manga.


I think it's pretty boring for a manga, not just sports manga.

Awe-som-azing!!!!

I'm always down for some sports anime. And this time it's volleyball! One of my favorite sports.

I've watched:
Basketball (Slam Dunk, Kuroko no Basket and Dear Boys)
Cycling (Nasu: Summer in Andalusia and Yowamushi Pedal this season)
Tennis (The Prince of Tennis)
Baseball (Major S1 and One Outs (on my PTW))
Soccer (Offside and Hungry Heart)
Swimming (Free!)
Boxing (Hajime no Ippo)
Athletics (Suzuka)
Ice Skating (Ginban Kaleidoscope)

A badminton anime would make my life even better... =)
