Storyline

The Teiko Middle School Basketball Team. The school that produced three perfect seasons in a row, with five once-in-a generation players, called "The Generation of Miracles." There was another player who all of them respected... A legendary 6th player. An up-and-coming power player, Taiga Kagami, is just back from America. When he comes to Seirin High School, he meets the super-ordinary boy, Tetsuya Kuroko. Kagami is shocked to find that Kuroko isn't good at basketball, in fact, he's bad! And he's so plain that he's impossible to see. But Kuroko's plainness lets him pass the ball around without the other team noticing him, and he's none other than the sixth member of the Miracle Generation. Kuroko makes a pact with Kagami to defeat the other members of the Miracle Generation, who have all played basketball at other schools. A battle of light (Kagami) and shadow (Kuroko) begins!

One of the best anime sports ever
6 January 2017 | by joaodsmf1See all my reviews

High paced anime TV show with a very good and large soundtrack and individual talent vs teamwork story make this basketball anime one of the best sports anime not only of recent years but of always. The backgrounds of many characters, some main ones aren't very explored but the emotion and the chess like teamwork plays makes up for it. There are true tactics in this anime and its not an attack vs attack or individual player after another except some situations when characters are at their best like that. And there is character development not only individually but within the main team too. Has a good comedy to complement it.
