The official website for the upcoming film Kuroko's Basketball: Last Game today announced collaboration with NBA (National Basketball Association), an eminent men's professional basketball league in North America, mainly focusing on releasing original goods.
The Kuroko' Basketball manga's original author Tadatoshi Fujimaki, who also serves as the supervisor for the film, picked eight teams for the collaboration project from all 30 teams in the league. Starting from today, character illustrations wearing the eight NBA uniforms newly drawn by the anime character designer Yoko Kikuchi will be posted daily on the web. The first character is Taiga Kagami wearing the uniform of Chicago Bulls below.
The collaboration items are scheduled to be sold at the Seibu Ikebukuro Flagship store in Tokyo and other selected stores. Details will be followed soon.
The all-new film based on the eight-episode sequel series Kuroko's Basketball Extra Game is set to
be released in Japan on March 18, 2017.
