Kuroko no Basuke 2 episode 08
This episode was annoyingly confusing. I had no idea what I was watching until halfway through the episode. I was under the impression that I was just watching a regular Kuroko no Basuke episode until I noticed that something was wrong.
Episodes like these aren’t bad. Episodes that show us a character’s past tell us a lot about what’s to come. Although my post will be short this time, I cannot say it enough how important it is that we learn about these things before we get to see the next match. I always wondered how Teppei got injured and why he’s so cautious around that creepy guy. Now we know.
I must say that I’m a little surprised. Those things, even if you make it look like an accident, should be allowed to happen. I’m sure Teppei is planning ahead to ensure that something like that won’t happen again, because he already knows that his opponent hasn’t changed one bit. He’ll probably try again if he gets the chance.
The funny part about this episode, believe it or not, was when they were out one day to play that very match, when suddenly they came across Teiko’s team. That was the team that Kuroko was one during his middle school days, the very same team that became known as “The Generation of Miracles”. All the members walked out and everyone was staring at them as though they were gods, but none of them ever saw Kuroko. It was pretty funny. He was behind them with yet another lifeless expression on his face. To think that he has a pretty girl that’s interested in him is still a mystery to me.
