Considered posting that as well. The series went from being about farming cringe, to a surprisingly uplifting story where Kuroko as a character gets to consider far more angles to life. And everyone is kinda weird in their own way. Even "basic" people. And Kuroko's life didn't just "magically" become better. At the critical points she actually put in real effort on something she struggled with, and it was a somewhat slow transition. It's pretty optimistic in a way, being a sound contrast to the bleak hopelessness earlier in the series.
