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.

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 3 put me through such an emotional journey, like I was undergoing an intense session of super hydraulics diarrhea of emotions. I'd be calm one second, laughing hysterically the next, feeling goosbumps all over my body, and dropping tears when I felt overwhelmed with the outcome. But that's just how the characters and storyline made you feel. I mean, even just listening to the soundtracks got you all pumped up and ready to enter an epic battle. They were brilliantly set up, and at the right moments too. Really gets you in the mood, with a great build up, whether the scene was distressing or exciting. I non-stop had goosebumps, literally almost every episode. That's how enthralling it was. And I mean, this is the only Sports genre anime series I've ever seen and been hooked on. It really helps if you watch sports in the real also, but otherwise, it's easy to understand and gets you straight to the point. One part I quite enjoyed (though I did enjoy all of it), were the flash back episodes to Teiko Middle School and how the the Generation of Miracles came to be. It was great to see and finally understand how Kuroko got involved with Basketball and how he developed his abilities...(note: I did not read any of the Manga - so this is purely based off the Anime). You get so much out of the animation, in that there's always something going on - whether it's on the court or not. It really holds onto your attention and captivates you for as long as it can. The only time I took my eyes off the screen was when I was being disturbed from the outside world (my mum and sister like to pester me when I'm in the moment), but other than that, I hardly ever wanted or needed to avert my eyes away from the action. But now that the season has ended, I don't know if I should feel happy about how it ended, or just feel lost because something important and fantastic in my life is on hold... ~_~ All in all, I'm super pleased with this season of Kuroko no Basuke. "Go Seirin! Fight!"
