Kuroko no Basuke episode 04

Now this was a pretty interesting episode. I had hoped to see a little more action, but this was good too. I do feel that there’s a lot more comedy than in the first two episodes. Maybe it’s me, maybe it’s not. Either way; I smile a little but more than I used to when watching this.

This week’s episode left me with mixed opinions. We saw everyone doing their very best to win the match, that goes for both sides. But it got too aggressive at one point. The scores were close, time was running short and people were getting impatient. That’s when Ryouta’s hand ended up hurting Kuroko’s face, causing him to take a break to rest a little and to take care of all the blood. I don’t know whether this was an accident or not, but I do believe that Ryouta’s subconscious was a little bit scared of Kuroko. Kuroko is the only one that he cannot copy, which is why this game was so difficult for him, and why he wanted Kuroko on his side.

That’s when something beautiful happened. Seirin, Kuroko’s team, finally realized how important he was. Playing without Kuroko was so much harder. They soon started losing points, when suddenly Riko wished for Kuroko’s return. He stood up, got back in without complaining and played the rest of the match. Now that’s a man right there! Not only did they win, but they also learned a very important lesson. Never judge a book by its over.

This anime is so simple and yet so complicated. I keep hoping that Kuroko will get much better at basketball (shooting, intercepting, you name it), but on the other hand I don’t want him to. I fear that it may destroy the character’s personality and the show’s overall magic. It is fine as it is now, and still I hope for more… I apologize for being so greedy, guys. Let us see how they will fare against those other “legendary” players.
