Kuroko no Basuke 2 episode 05
Want to know what I did today (amongst other things)? I watched the first Kuroko no Basuke episode for the sixth time! It’s such an amusing and memorable episode… I cannot help myself but to watch that episode whenever I feel like it.
It made me realize how far Seirin has come during these many episodes. It used to be such a simple plot with such a simple story. It got very complicated very fast. Now we see Taiga struggle against an opponent that he defeated in the past, only because Taiga failed to work on his endurance. It’s one of those things that people don’t really focus on, I guess, because Taiga was really surprised to find out that Shintarou had worked on his endurance instead of his technique. You wouldn’t expect something like that from a person who’s known to throw the most amazing shots from an amazing distance.
It’s safe to say that their biggest mistake was to put Kuroko on the bench. Actually, I’m not sure… Kuroko never intended to use that new drive of his in this match. It wasn’t until their opponents gained the upper hand that he decided to try out that new drive of his in the field. All the more reason to watch next week’s episode.
Now, I’m already sure that we won’t find out next week whether or not that drive of his is invincible. I’m expecting to see a win for Seirin thanks to that midget’s new move. I’m kind of hoping I’m wrong, but that’s probably how it’ll go down. I’m sure Satsuki-chan will run back to warn Daiki about Kuroko’s newest weapon, hehe…
