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” for now is nothing more because this is one anime which has been known in the community; and now, this is the time for the conclusion and the final season of this one of the basketball anime with the most ambitious aggression ever. Now, after a long journey from zero to a little more to the end, the third season isn’t one of the most expected of all seasons because this season is more like something directly like magic. An introduction to a new character and revealing some background of the Generation of Miracles, again, may seem pushed because it’s so sudden while there is some point where there is quite breaking the rules. At least, the third season still gives something more interesting than the two seasons because of Seirin’ll face one of the most dominant teams ever, Rakuzan; led by one of the most ambitious psycho person, Seijuurou Akashi. This time, The third season isn’t about how to deal with thousands of barriers without any transition determining it but this season is about speculating everything. The Kuroko’s character as a shadow behind the light finally revealed why he prefers to separate from all his friends and prefer to take another path rather than join his friends from the Generation of Miracles. Besides, Kuroko’s development at this point is more revealing such as how he gets its skills and the style of playing where we finally understand more about this such character. The rest, there are four matches be provided by the viewers, including Seirin’s final confrontation against Rakuzan. However, they put more effort and portions in the final match which means it’s not that matters. The match and personal experience between Kise Ryouta and Shougo Haizaki is a prominent one after the final intense match. Plus, this opens up more backgrounds from Kise Ryouta before he joins the Generation of Miracles. Viewers finally can also see the playing style of Akashi who is finally explained and revealed but the flashback is more non-sense approaches such as multiple personalities and Emperor Eye, a power which can read the opponent’s movements for the next few seconds. In a nutshell, it kinda seems to predict the future or something like that. Sure, it’s not that matters when it comes to this because indeed from the first season, this shounen anime actually is. But, it kinda overthrew the logic and the rules yet still, it’s entertaining but feels solid, flat, and repetitive. Speaking of emotional, for the first time I saw the empathy side of Shintaro where he was originally distant to everyone but I put more empathy for this one character especially his relationship and inspiration from Kazunari Takao, his one of the best teammates. It also reveals up the background between Takao and Shintaro which at first, it still looks vague but supports its drama elements which this is not really a drama anime. Still, they just wanna mess with your heart. Production I.G still holds this basketball thing. The artwork still looks the same but there is one small detail that changes all the appearance from the design and movement of each character. Yet, it’s one of the artworks where still adhere to their principles and provides various elements which are instinctive and pumps an adrenaline even though it just appears on the artwork including the cinematography, how they take pictures of each of the sequence and scene, and they attach some expression from the various characters. Not quite really entertaining when it comes to the soundtrack and yet, it’s just kinda the same as before. Various kinds of opening and ending theme songs where GRANRODEO is one of the bands from the beginning still keeping the anime trademark. When it comes to the minor problem, yet I said that this anime is quite breaking the rules in the last few episodes. If I’m not mistaken, I’ve seen how Daiki Aomine, who used to partner with Kuroko before the post, became the duo of the light and shadow before Kagami explained how to open a gate which I forgot about it. Clearly, this is a gate that contains the original power of the Zone itself where Aomine cannot open it because there is someone standing at the gate. Starting from here, it sounds like this is not an anime basketball anymore but, why not when it’s still entertaining? But, that isn’t the case. I just think it’s weird because it seems like the rules seem to change in here and how the Zone which works this time was explained. Why not from the first? Maybe this is part of a twist but I don’t see it like that. Haizaki as the archrival of Kise also appeared just like that. There is no clear or vague clue in the previous seasons which it just appeared It told in forcibly and forgettable. Yet, the pace is often inviting some intense in every episode which this is one of the best conclusions to close this franchise, its various OVAs, and something like that. This basketball world-war seems to end here but “Kuroko’s Basketball 3” is pretty forced, quite break the rules, and etc. They really focus more on the final battle than the others. The rest, it just likes some generic arc or plot to cover up the twenty-five episodes. Still, is one of the best conclusions from the final season, the final game and confrontation that has long been in its first season. The movie, “Kuroko’s Basketball: Last Game” will be the last cover of this basketball franchise. It took a long journey, patience, and process of being able to be here and “Kuroko’s Basketball” became one of the most interesting shounen anime I’ve ever watched. Sure, “Slam Dunk” is a pioneer but, why not? Just like “Haikyu!!” which I think is one of the shounen anime where volleyball is the main point.
