Crunchyroll Dunks "Kuroko's Basketball" into Spring Anime Lineup

Starts Friday April 7th at 11:30 AM PDT

Crunchyroll announced they'll be streaming the adaptation of Tadatoshi Fujimaki's Weekly Shonen Jump-serialized manga Kuroko's Basketball as part of their spring lineup of anime titles. The sports drama kicks off this Friday (April 7th) at 11:30 AM PDT.


Story as follows:


The Teiko Middle School Basketball Team: the class that produced three perfect seasons in a row, with five once-in-a-generation players, called 'the Miracle Generation.'


There was another player whom all of them respected…a legendary 6th teammate. When up-and-coming power-player Taiga Kagami returns from America, he enrolls in Seirin High School and meets the suprisingly ordinary boy, Tetsuya Kuroko. Kagami is shocked to find that Kuroko isn't good at basketball—in fact, he's bad! And he's so plain that he's impossible to see.


However, Kuroko's plainness lets him pass the ball around without the other team noticing him—he was indeed the sixth member of the Miracle Generation. Kuroko makes a pact with Kagami to defeat the other members of the middle school dream team who have all since moved on to play basketball at other high schools. A battle of light (Kagami) and shadow (Kuroko) begins!


Kuroko's Basketball will be viewable in the following territories: U.S.A., Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, Norway, and Sweden.
