It's been a week since my last blog post. I've been wondering what to blog about and considering I'm pretty much bored these days that I simply don't know what to do.
Then one day, I was rummaging my box of DVD's when I came across, one of my favorite sports related anime. Mind you, I'm not much of a fan when it comes to this kind of genre, with a few exemptions of course, namely, Slam Dunk and Prince of Tennis. This is an addition and thus, also an exemption. The title is Kuroko no Basuke (The Basketball which Kuroko plays).
Now, If you're a basketball fan or a basket ball junkie you'll surely like this. As for me, I belong to the former. Kuroko no Basuke is a Japanese manga turned anime due to it's popularity. So far, the anime already have 2 seasons. The anime's first season was run last 2012 with 25 episodes and the second season was released just this year having the same 25 episodes. I'm still anticipating for the third season. :D
Now, lets go to the plot.
Basketball is such a popular game that every school competes as to what team and school is the best. Among those school, Teiko Middle School rose above the rest and their regulars became so popular known as " The Generation of Miracles". After they graduated, these five prodigies went to different high schools with a top team. However, only few knows that there was another player of the "Generation of Miracles". A player that they themselves acknowledge--the phantom sixth man. Now this mysterious player is now also a fresh man at Seirin High. A new school with a powerful and little known team. Now, Kuroko Tetsuya, the phantom sixth man of the "Generation of Miracles" together with his new team mate Kagami Taiga, a naturally talented player who spent most of his middle school in America are aiming to bring their school Seirin High to be the top of Japan and for that they must take down his former team mates the "Generation of Miracles" one by one.
I'm currently both reading the manga and re-watching it's first season. It's really good. I can't sit still especially when Seirin (the name of the team which Kuroko plays) are facing their opponent. As for you my dear readers, I'll give you a the plot of this story BUT I'm not going to say anything else. EXCEPT this, Kuroko is the name of the protagonist of the series, hence, the name. If you want to know why---find it out yourself. Give this a try you might find it enjoyable and fun. ;D
And the famous Teiko Middle School's "Generation of Miracles"
Watch, read and Find out!
Go Seirin!!! :P
