  • Inspirational at its core.
    This anime made me want to play more basketball, i had played basketball all my life until high school; This anime makes me feel the need to start trying again. This anime not only makes you feel excited but it also tells a great story that makes you want more. If i could recommend this to a type of person it wouldn't just be anime fans, but it would also be basketball fans. Do me a favor: Watch ...

  • Honestly the best sports anime I.have.ever.watched.
    ITS JUST AMAZING

    Look, I've never seen or read Slam Dunk, or whatever, but i have watched a lot of sports anime. This, good sir, has absolutely nothing to complain about. In fact, the only time i was dissatisfied during this anime was the cliffhanger ending and the fact that i have to wait until 2015 for more!

    Good points:
    -The character development is amazing. I absolutely ...

    All the characters are interesting with a good story line
    I love basket ball and this makes me love it more! Guys and Girls can both watch this and both enjoy it equally. This isnt very cliche like them winner every single match, they have some bumps and challenges they have to go through to become the best in Japan. Although its not THAT realistic to real life people can still relate to the characters and have a 'bond' with the characters. This anime ...

    One of my favorites!
    This is definitely one of my favorite animes/mangas of all time. Though some of the moves are ridiculous and some parts seem impossible to apply to real life basketball, I still love it, which is rare for me. I usually don't like sport animes, and I don't often enjoy watching action animes (obviously this doesn't mean I don't like any). But, it has a combination of comedic moments and serious ...

    pretty good story about...a seemingly invisible kid lol and basketball
    It captures the competetive nature of Basketball, the character interactions are nothing to write home about. The miracles are terrible, even for antagonists, there is trash talking...on the court, where it stays. I know every one has said it, but Slam Dunk really is a better Basketball story.Also we're forced to swallow the idea that these 5 prima donnas with no fundamentals...calling this a good ...

  • Truly an Amazing Series
    I found out about this anime when I looked at the manga sales rankings and found out that this was consistently selling in the Top 5 along with series like Naruto and One Piece then I began reading the manga and watching the anime.

    I love this anime and it was A LOT better than I expected. The characters are all interesting and unique in their own ways. Kuroko is my favorite. Even though he is ...

    A fun show, but an awkward misrepresentation of basic principles of organized basketball
    -SOME MILD SPOILERS-

    A disclaimer: I don't give away four and five star ratings. This is a 3.5 star show, but they don't give half stars. So if you're on the fence, and you love basketball like I do, you'll find this show very quaint for a lot of reasons. It's actually a fairly neat cultural artifact, because it illustrates how basketball is simply not a dominant element of Japanese sports ...

    nowhere near as good as Slam Dunk
    Besides the art being upgraded to 21st century, everything else in this anime lacks so much compared to Slam Dunk. Slam Dunk had all these:
    1. well-rounded and interesting characters, including the protagonists, the teammates, the coach, the love interest, and the opponents
    2. better character development and storytelling
    3. romance line

    Basically Kuroko's Basketball took out all the ...

    Yup. A cool sports anime
    It's like the better, funnier version of Slam Dunk. I actually find the side characters more interesting than the main character a.k.a Kuroko, but that's maybe because he's really quiet.

    The only selling point for me is that it is really really REALLY funny, and like any other sports anime, it got a lot of competition especially with the Generation of Miracles thrown in the mix.

  • Hella Basketball Anime
    I never thought I'd be interested in watching a show about basketball, however, Kuroko no Basuke was an interesting watch to say the least. Although it extends it's game time into several [3-5] episodes, it it kept me on edge and was suspenseful but at the same time also very comical. (I also love the characters, whether that be by a bias of personality, aesthetics, or both *u*)

    I really ...
