Kuroko no Basuke 2 episode 04
I’m really glad that Kuroko no Basuke and Hajime no Ippo air on the same day as Space Brothers. I know the latter will probably end up disappointing me to no end, but the other two probably never will. They’re just too damn good.
I’m glad that they explained a bit more about how the Generation of Miracles worked. We already knew that Teppei was one of the “uncrowned kings” that could’ve been part of the Generation of Miracles if he was born a year later. We also know that there are four other players that are capable of going head-to-head with the current Generation of Miracles, and that Teppei has met the worst one of them. I don’t know what happened between those two yet, and I’m pretty sure we’ll find out, but right now I just want to see Seirin win their next two matches without having to worry about other gifted players.
That aside, I’m glad Kuroko asked Taiga for help. He’s been working very hard on his new drive, which is a technique that should allow him to pass any player any time, even if they know what’s coming. Seeing it again was pretty cool (and funny), but I really want to see it done in a match in order to find out if it’s really unstoppable (probably not).
I also liked how they teamed up Shintarou and Taiga this time. Taiga has been working on his jumps and his techniques. Shintarou hasn’t got anything new. He has been working on his endurance so that he can have an endurance match between him and Taiga. I can’t wait to see whose legs are going to give in first!
