Note: this is my first review on this site but I'm pretty confident that this will be helpful.
You don't have to know how to play Basketball if you want to enjoy this show or watch the NBA- though you should try just to see what it's like in real life but Kuroko no Basuket, also known as Kuroko's Basketball is an anime that will keep you glued to your seat from the first episode. Now, I have to say that I wasn't a very big fan of sports anime, in fact I disliked the whole lot of it, or I just didn't really have any
interest in them. I have watched (The prince of tennis) before and it was average to me. I've heard of (Slam Dunk) and other sports anime that were famous but they sounded boring to me(not anymore). Kuroko to Basuket was the first sports anime that I gave myself a chance to watch, and I'm VERY glad that I did.
The Teiko middle school basketball club. An incredibly strong team with over 100 members and 3 consecutive championship wins. Amongst their brilliant record, the generation of 5 prodigies was known as "The Generation Of Miracles." However, there was a strange rumor concerning the Generation Of Miracles. Despite being relatively unknown and lacking a game record, there was one more member recognized by the 5 prodigies. A phantom sixth man... (You'll recognize this soon) The story of Kuroko and Kagami and of course their team (Seirin) struggle and getting stronger and aiming for the top throughout the series is just absolutely amazing, because there is more than that of course. And with a great mix of comedy at times like the old classic joke when Kuroko suddenly appears and disappear and Kagami's English speaking skills. Now, I won't spoil anything so you can watch the series for yourself, but If you don't like the first few episodes, then you'll probably drop the series sooner or later. The development of the story is normal paste and they adapted the manga very well.
With Production IG doing the animation, expect it to be nice and fluid (Have you seen Guilty Crown?), but not always. They can't just go changing the art style that the original creator of the manga (Fujimaki, Tadatoshi) did. But don't get me wrong, this kind of art is perfect for a sports anime, as for a sports anime the characters at many times are always moving around and that is not easy to animate though it can be rigid at times. They did a very good job in my opinion. This art style really brings out the aspects of the characters. It's not the best, but I like it. Overall the animation is great.
Alright, I swear that I heard dubstep tracks in many episodes, not hardcore like Skrillex of course. The other tracks are pretty good but not outstanding. The score does a good job when telling the way the game is drifting and the emotions of players. (Has anyone ever heard Guilty Crown OST?) - No, the sound track of Kuroko to basket is good and has a nice pace.
Throughout the series, you get to see the different factors of major characters, what they went through, how they get stronger, and by all means... They never give up. This is what made them who they are today, look at Serin for an example, but I don't think this applies for Aomine and maybe some of the [GOM] \(**)/ Anyway, you will find that from the beginning to the end the characters change, some little and some drastically, like Kagami.
I just love this show from the bottom of my heart. To tell you the truth, I'm not a very active person. I don't play sports or exercise much, and I know this is only an Anime, but this show inspired me to go outside and actually DO SOMETHING! - No I am not a hikikomori, and plz don'th think I'm pathetic cause I don't exercise! So... all in all you really will enjoy this show;)
This show is great and I think most people will really like it. It's not a masterpiece, but it's VERY close to it. Hope there will be a season 2, maybe there will because of the profit the company's making since this is a hit anime in Japan WOOOOOOOO! Thanks for reading my review if you did :D
