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?
I'm not a big fan of sports anime. I think that they have limited development and are fairly 2 dimensional, with special effects for the "special attack!!!!" making me kind of cringe at the lack of reality and no explanation.
So when a friend was like this animes quite good i was rather sceptical. But istarted watching and realised, i couldn't stop. The comedy was very funny (which is where sports animes excel sometimes) but the animation and actual style of the show, is not "SUPER 20 FT MEGA ULTRA RARE JUMP DUNK!!!!!" instead, you get a real sense of strategy.
I really like the characters in this show as well - recently there's been an outbreak of really REALLY WEAK main characters (ouma shu, yukiteru from mirrai nikki) and i think kuroko is very interesting and breaks the mold between really overpowered, fiesty, quick tempered/weak minded, wimpy character. And the character interaction really increases the comedy value and i laughed out loud several times over the course of this unfinished series
