They defeated Touou Gakuen, featuring Aomine, and Yosen, featuring Murasakibara, both from the "Generation of Miracles," causing Seirin to be one of the more noticed schools. They firm their resolve towards the semifinals.

I am not good at writing long stories, so I am keeping this review short.(it is my first review) Plot summary: The basketball team of Teikō Middle School rose to distinction by demolishing all competition. The regulars of the team became known as the "Generation of Miracles". After graduating from middle school, these five stars went to different high schools with top basketball teams. However, a fact few know is that there was another player in the "Generation of Miracles": a phantom sixth man. This mysterious player is now a freshman at Seirin High, a new school with a powerful, if little-known, team. Now, Kuroko Tetsuya, the sixth member of the "Generation of Miracles", and Kagami Taiga, a naturally talented player who spent most of middle school in the US, are aiming to bring Seirin to the top of Japan, taking on Kuroko's former teammates one by one. http://kurokonobasuke.wikia.com/wiki/Kuroko_no_Basuke  This is my first sports anime, and I am basing this on the previous seasons as well.  Story:  The first season was the best! It had thrilling moments most of the way mixed with some comic release. Some parts were a bit more relaxed than others, giving us(the watchers) room to calm down. But still... It was predictable. Second season: This season was by far the worst of those three. Yes, it had some exciting moments, but it was over the top. There was too many episodes. Those ongoing recaps made those episodes longer than they had to. It seemed they wanted to force 25 episodes of a really short story, which could have been kept to far fewer episodes. It was so bad, I atchually fell asleep from boredomness. Third season: At was a little more exciting than the second season, but more predictable. They managed to plot in some unpredictable moments though, which made it more thrilling to watch.  However; All those flashbacks and recaps made it boring. It kinda felt like a hole in the main plot, making it difficult to follow. And as with the second season, they really forced too many episodes from the story. Animation: The art was amazing. Background and the character designs- and shading technique, well done. I also really enjoyed the art style. But the animation, however, was TERRIBLE. There was hardly any animation at all besides from moving stillframes, and just simple stillframes of the faces of the characters. Also just still elements being dragged across the frame. For instant, a picture of the crowd cheering. They only relied on sound there, not the animation at all. It is also noticeable that when they atchually did animate something, they could have used more frames, because some of the animated movements are uneven. I felt really dissapointed in this, I honestly expected more. Sound: The sound was comfortable. I could hear the spoken lines well, and the effectsounds, foley and backgorundmusic was well timed. They could, however, have had a little more variation in the main OSTs. Some of them were used too much, almost to the point where it began to annoy me.  But I really liked the op's and ed's. Those were good. Characters: This was by far the best in the whole anime/plot. Their character developmet was really good, and well timed.  Most of the characters were loveable, and I didn't really hate any of them. They had well defined personalities, and some stood out more than the others. (pun intended) But they used the main characters in a way that doesn't exactly fit the title. The "MC" wasn't really the "MC". But the character design is something different... I want to talk about their hair! OOoooobviously you've gotta have colors if you're special. I guess this was to make it easier for us to distinguish them? To me it felt kinda out of place as they were the only characters with unnatural colors.  Overall: This anime was about okay, not fine, not good, not bad, but about okay. The animation is a huge part of an anime, and being so bad made me rate this anime with a low score. It was good at keeping us thrilled tense, but also predictable and somewhat boring at some parts.


Kuroko's Basketball Finishes Strong In The Paint With A Solid Final Season!It's only right the final season of Kuroko no Basuke is the best season, continuing on with the Winter Cup. Expect more of the same stuff just with some pretty important backstories to help tie everything up, there's also some drama during the games and even off the court which adds a little bit of spice to the already busy season three. In this final season we see the boiz from Seirin continue their chase for the Winter Cup but we also get to see their rivals in action.Some of the most unlikeable characters are introduced this season and I guess it does add a bit of excitement to the Anime, Kuroko Tetsuya's backstory is finally revealed which helps a whole lot for Kuroko's character and should've been shown in earlier seasons. We get to see Kise shows off his true skill which is a great runback match and we finally get to see the "Generation of Miracles" former captain Akashi, in action.The animation I feel once again is improved with Studio I.G. still making sneaky but good use of those still frames, the soundtrack is awesome especially the tracks "Triple Team", "Triple Threat" and "Rakuzan Shingeki" which are all pretty hype and awesome. Now does season three do the show justice? It does! Again technical Basketball is not the main focus here, it's the on-court action with its fun fest of offense and defense but one thing I've really come to like about Kuroko's Basketball is it shows the resolve of each player. Yeah I do feel everything could've been structured better, more character development but overall it all came together well to create a satisfying end for a good show.+ Kurokos Backstory.+ Great Animation and Sound/Music.+ Polarizing Characters.hope this helps...🤙
