When so called "Zone" came into play it seems like the game become another fairy tale story when a small character gain super power winning against bigger character.


No the Zone is a real thing. If you have ever played a competitive sport for a long time, there will be a certain day when all your skills, knowledge and experience converge and you will play the respective game at the height of your powers...to the point where you even surprise yourself.

It is pretty much the same as the colloquial expression 'this player is on fire.'

The only problem with they way KNB used it was because Kagami used it twice in row. When they first introduced the concept of the zone they said Daiki could only use it sometimes. And this is how it is in real life. It will probably only occur to a professional players 1% of the time.

But hey...that is a typical shounen cliche, to exaggerate things past it limit. And remember, it is not as bad as PoT.

At least before episode 24 and 25 in Season 2, its skills and determination which anyone can have.

Like Gundam series where a single person can beat tens or hundreds of people.

Might as well put 500 people on Yosei team against Seirin 5.

Lets just say Season 2 ends with f****g disappointment.

I saw the last episode of season 2 earlier. This series is sort of entertaining but loses some steam when random crap is put into it such as "Thor's Hammer" and the fact he says it when he does it, just makes this series more sillier than usual.

This series became more and more of an anime for girls and less of a sports anime as it progressed.

My overall score for this anime is 7/10 and the Engrish was horrible and I don't know of a American girl who just randomly kisses people in the lips, it's a silly gimmick but I guess the show needed a random laugh here and there.

The zone clash between Aomine and Kagami was awesome. I laughed when the ball went to a vacant Touou team member...he almost didnt know what to do after witnessing a high level exchange.

Truth be told, Daiki is my favourite character in the series and I wanted him to win against Kagami.

Even so it was an exciting episode and the fist bump at the end I found strangely moving if not somewhat idealistic of how friendship works.

Just marathoned this show and my initial impressions were that it was great. I can easily get on board with any series that has clearly delineated its roadmap and wastes no time getting there. For example the generation of miracles matchup.

I do enjoy the premise and the setup that 5 prodigies and one 1 dark horse yet all 4 of the prodigies seen so far have respected Kuroko for his one dimensional gimmick. It is also kind of tragic seeing Kuroko's backstory about how everyone of the GoM blossomed apart from him which eventually led to his isolation.

Another thing I find charming about this show, is that all the teenage boys are realistically portrayed as assholes which is always a huge plus for me. Nothing as over exaggerated as PoT devil eyes/godly techniques but there is a fair amount of convincing trash talk and smugness when people are failing. That is a part of sport's culture and I think the show nails that spirit in this respect.

As it has gone on however it has started to become more generic as a sport show with melodrama abound. At this point though I cant be bothered to drop it because I am actually quite heavily invested. But I'm hoping that Kuroko's character arc will lead him to become more aggressive as a player because I believe that is the best lesson sports can bestow unto humans.

My favourite GoM so far is Daiki because of his wild unrestrained style. And while Mirdorina and Kise have started to rely on their respective teammates...I'm glad Daiki remains a solitary player and furthermore was able to beat Kise specifically because he relied on his team. That is something you dont see in shounens which monotonously champions friendship/camaraderie above all else. I found that message to be relatively mature.

I have huge interest in seeing Akashi. I wonder what his personally is like and how he was able to lead the GoM. This also leads to another point. I dont care how it happens or when it happens but there must be an instance where all 6 GoM play on the same team again. That would be a real treat.

All in all, this show is entertaining me and not a bad way to kill some time.

I don't even know why the mangaka is getting the death threats in the first place.....why is he getting them, is there any logical reason or is the guy sending the death threats just mad? Of course he's mad, he's sending out death threats over a manga but is there any real reason of why he's so angry with the mangaka?

I don't think there is a known reason. There have been many speculations, including "mockery" of basketball, not enough shounen-ai, etc...

Unsurprising news is unsurprising    Given the way the first series ended, it was effectively a no brainer, especially all the recent "attention" it has been getting from those death threats.

After finishing this series, I thought it was mediocre at best but the soundtrack of this series is just great that I'm actually looking forward to a 2nd season.

I watched all 25 episodes in one sitting, took me less than 12 hours, it was a decent series....not great though. I saw all the scores for it at MAL and I'm a little perplexed as to why it's rated so highly.....I guess its because of the fan-girls rating it highly for all the bishounen running around.

I find the coach kinda cute and there's the hawt chick, who's a pink-haired manager for another team, she sorta reminds of Air Gear's Simca.

I was really hyped up by all the scores, so I'm a little disappointed, the series pales in comparison to Chihayafuru as a sports anime.

The soundtrack for the series such as the "battle songs" were pretty good, might add them to my playlist.

It's a good series, that's enjoyable but I was a little disappointed because I was expecting it to be exceptional considering it's ranked #31 on the top TV series list, which makes no sense to me.

I'm rating this a series a solid 8/10, nothing more and nothing less.
