Synopsis

Kuroko is a member from the legendary middle school basketball team known as "The Generation of Miracles", and while nobody seems to know about him, the main 5 players of the team all admit that he is a better player. When he joins the high school basketball team, everyone is surprised to find out that he is small, weak, and easy to miss. What is the secret that makes him so strong, and how will he help his high school team?

Main Characters


Tetsuya Kuroko
(Voiced by Kensho Ono)

The protagonist. He is the sixth and the phantom member of the "Generation of Miracles", Kuroko is Seirin's new secret weapon. All his abilities (power, speed and flexibility) seem to be below average, but e can be a dangerous opponent. Despite being apparently bad at dribbling and shooting, he's specialized in circulating passes without being seen thanks to his lack of presence. However, after being defeated by Daiki Aomine, Kuroko trains himself to evolve his play style. Given the absolute presence and importance of the ball in play, it had been previously thought impossible for Kuroko to maintain his misdirection while in possession of the ball; as such the time he spends handling the ball on court is extremely minimal. He has overcome this previous limitation, and has developed the ability to imperceptibly move past players while dribbling the ball, creating his own 'invisible' drive. Because of his largely complementary skill set, Kuroko considers himself a "Shadow", whose goal is to help his "Light" achieve greatness.


Taiga Kagami
(Voiced by Yuuki Ono)

Kagami was in America until second year of middle school and has recently come back to Japan. He is determined to surpass "The Generation of Miracles" and become the number 1. Along with Kuroko, they're the only two freshmen allowed to play in matches.

Glad you made the thread for this series. I'm keen in checking it out as Area no Kishi is kinda dropping the ball right now compared to the manga.

After I read a good review on ANN, I'll start for sure

First episode.

I love Kuroko.
He was so cute and funny in the episode.
The other characters were okay too. (hopefully we'll get to know them more.)

Very good first episode! I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I hope they don't fuck it up because this looks promising!

This anime is great. I hope it gives some feeling similar to Slam Dunk since that was my favourite sport anime. Nonetheless Kuroko is awesome and I can't to wait to see more.

I wasn't sure about it because as far a sports anime goes I try to stay clear of them because they always have some sort of awesome powers or something. But I think I'll keep my eye on this one if for no other reason than Kurokos blue hair/eyes.

I love this show. Kuroko does remind me of my friend. Not the ALL OF A SUDDEN POPPING OUT OF NOWHERE stuff, but how he his presence is not that powerful. He sucks at dribbling and passing but a great rebounder and putback player. He'll just show up and get that putback in. That's why i can sort've relate to Kuroko cause his presence is almost nothing on the court yet he'll show up when you stop paying attention to him. I don't think it'll happen in a nba or college game but in a high school game, probably.

i honestly don't like basketball as an anime, but i have high expectations from this series. sleight of hand, lol all i think of the OP vid and i thought kuroko could play basketball. but that was a disappointment. basketball wise, i am a lil disappointed but storyline looks good.

Episode 2.



Loved this episode.
And there's a new character introduced already! I can't wait to see the rest of the Generation of Miracles.



Kuroko was, again, so cute!


I loved how he said that with a straight face.

I haven't seen Slam Dunk yet but I'm hearing good things about it.
Hopefully Kuroko no Basuke will do as good or better!

I just realised the relevence of the name Kuroko
A "Kuroko" in Japanese, is the people in puppet shows and stuff that wear all black. They're never seen, but are actually doing most of work in the background.
Yeah, I'm awesome.
