Kuroko no Basuke episode 02

I have decided! I will write about Kuroko no Basuke! I’m not sure if I will write about Nazo no Kanojo x as well. I could always move it one day, but I’m not sure I want to. It’s an interesting piece, but I get grossed out sometimes while watching that. Kuroko no Basuke on the other hand is simply interesting and fun. I even watched the first episode twice.

This week’s episode was all about acceptance and preparation. Everyone wanted to become a regular player on the basketball team, but only a select few could join. That’s when Riko-chan, the team’s cute coach, came up with an idea where everyone would get a fair chance at becoming one of the regulars. I’m not going into detail, but let’s just say that it had very little to do with basketball.

I’m pretty sure that everyone has realized Tetsuya’s talents by now. Sure, he may not be tall, strong or fast, but he has his own unique talent. The ability to become practically invisible has proved to be most useful, and I think that the rest of the club has realized that as well. They’re really lucky to have him, especially Taiga.

Things took an unexpected twist though when it became known that their team would be facing another team soon in a practice match. That’s nothing special if you think about it, but it is when you find out that one of the players from “the generation of miracles” is part of that team. It was even weirder when Ryota, that specific player, actually showed up to say hello. Hell, not only did he say hello, he also asked Tetsuya to join his team. The balls on that guy…

The episode was just as fun as I expected it to be. I can’t wait to see what Tetsuya is going to do in that match against his former teammate, Ryota. But seriously, asking Tetsuya to join him after he defeated Taiga… How stupid. It’s obvious that Tetsuya doesn’t want to be part of a team whose motto is; “winning is everything”.

    Blondy is way too cocky for his own good. Trust me, his self-confidence will be the end of him.

    btw: is it just me or would panty shots from their coach really fit this anime? 😛

  2. William H. says:

    Who ever said that basketball revolved around height? Being tall is only one thing, but being fast, strong, smart, talented, all those things are simply required to become a good basketball player. The main reason why I like this anime is because the main character isn’t some ridiculously talented monster, but just an ordinary guy with one simple talent.

    Normally I give sports anime a very wide berth, but after reading the good feedbacks from several bloggers I decided to give this one a try. And to my utter surprise I found myself enjoying it, though I got myself a good laugh at the names of the protagonists.
    (Couldn’t help it, the name Taiga makes me think about the super tsundere from Toradora, and Kuroko makes me think of the twin-tailed, teleporting, lesbian yandere in To Aru Majutsu no Index.)
