Kuroko no Basuke 2 episode 23
I got quite annoyed when watching this episode. I thought that I was the only one, but when I started browsing the internet randomly I read a lot of posts by other annoyed anime fans that saw this episode. Always nice to know that I’m not the only insane one.
The one that truly annoyed me was Atsushi. He decided to stop with his defensive playing style in order to go on the offense. That in itself is quite alright, especially if your defensive strategy no longer seems to work. But don’t go b*tching about every single thing. That guy, after realizing that he, too, has weaknesses, turned into a dreadful little boy and started threatening his opponents. He completely change from a calm player into a frustrated idiot that couldn’t handle the fact that his opponents were catching up to him. Do not be surprised when you see that guy cry as soon as Seirin beats him and his annoying team.
A lot of rumours have been going around. It’s more than obvious that the second season is going to after this match against Teikou is over and done with. It’s highly doubtful that we can expect the third season, which is undoubtedly already green-lit internally, this year. My guess is that the third season is going to air somewhere around the first quarter of 2015.
What do I expect from the remaining episodes? Nothing. There are two or three episodes left and I’m pretty sure that the match is going to use up at least another two episodes. Atsushi just turned up the heat, Kuroko is utilizing his new-found ability to shoot, Taiga hasn’t used his “in the zone” crap or his new move and the final few moments of the match have finally begun. The end is in sight, people.
