Kuroko no Basuke episode 11

Well, well, well… A surprisingly great episode this turned out to be. I don’t want to put this anime in a negative light, as it’s absolutely not a bad anime, but I simply didn’t expect this episode to be so amusing. It really sucked me up to the point where I almost started cheering for Seirin.

We picked up where we left off last week; with the intense match between Seirin and Shutoku. Things were getting lively as both times kept playing to get an edge, especially after Kuroko’s insane pass. They actually thought they had Shintarou, that green haired monster, in a corner with Kuroko’s latest pass. Wrong. That strategy was based on Shintarou’s distance to hit the hoop. Kuroko thought that he could score from as far away as half the field, but that boat soon sunk when it turned out that Shintarou can score from anywhere on the field. He can score from post to post, no problem whatsoever. That way Kuroko can’t pass to Taiga in order to score points.

That’s still only the good news though, strangely enough. One could always find a way to score, even if it’s against monsters like that. But how can one score when Kuroko, Seirin’s key player, can no longer pass due to one of Shutoku’s players, whom appears to be using similar passing methods to block Kuroko. It goes to show that Shutoku did their research as well.

Sigh, it really looks bad for Kuroko and his team. I’m really curious to see how Kuroko is going to handle that guy from here on out. His movements are very limited because of that guy, so he will have to find a way to get back in the game in order to support his team. This is just a wild guess, mainly based on all the anime I’ve seen so far, but I think that Kuroko is going to ‘discover’ yet a new ability that will help him win this match. Isn’t that usually how this works? Either that or Taiga will pull off some amazing stuff that will win them the match. We’ll see…
