And so five episodes remain. I’m guessing that it’s going to take at least three to four more episodes before this particular match is over and we all know that Seirin is going to continue their winning spree. It’s just a matter of time and patience right now.
The question is as follows: how do you defeat a team that’s known for their defensive line? A team that’s known for winning games without giving up a single point. A team whose players are so tall, so terrifyingly broad, that it actually makes you want to turn around and walk the other way. That’s just a team in general, but now you add Atsushi, a member of the Generation of Miracles, to the mixture and you mix it with a hint of Tatsuya, a guy that’s close to being like a member of the Generation of Miracles… How do you defeat a team like that? The world impossible suddenly comes to mind.
Simple answer to that question: supernatural skills. Kuroko has his vanishing drive, his overflow, and his super passes and now even his palm-punch shoot or whatever the hell it’s called. Combine that with Taiga’s “in the zone” ability and you got yourself a nice supernatural mixture. Not to mention the move that Taiga hasn’t even used yet.
Yes. Yes I’m making fun of Kuroko no Basuke. It’s rated somewhere around eight and a half and a nine averagely. Is that fair? Maybe for the first season, but this season is just a little disappointing if you ask me. I feel that the supernatural element has completely taken over. Enjoying Kuroko no Basuke has become just a little bit harder.Read More
Just four more episodes… Only four episodes until this season ends. What have we accomplished so far? Not much. I don’t know what they’re going to do or how they’re going to do it. I’m pretty sure that my long-awaited wish isn’t going to happen.
Yugo is back from the hospital and he’s still in a huge slump because he missed the festival and probably also because nobody came to see him. This would be a good time to get over it. It’s just so annoying that he’s so spineless. Just tell Aki-chan how you feel about her instead of stuttering like some idiot when you ask her if her promise to go out alone somewhere still stands. It’s embarrassing and pathetic. Aki is completely inexperienced and quite naive when it comes to love, so it’s really entirely up to Yugo to make that big first step. Either do it already or just give up and find someone else to follow around.
There is no way for me to go around this or any point in writing a whole story about it, but yeah, Ichiro, the school’s baseball talent whose pitching is said to be monstrous, lost at the end when one of his teammates failed to catch the decisive ball. They will not be advancing to the finals. No more baseball for them until next year.
Yugo and Aki won’t end up together. I’m pretty sure that won’t happen anytime soon. At least let Yugo figure out what he wants to do with the rest of his life. At least give this season some kind of purpose. It’s been a strange ride thus far and although I’ve learned quite a lot about farm live, I still find it rather disappointing that there has been very little character progress.Read More
It’s becoming clearer with every passing episode that there’s going to be a third season of Kuroko no Basuke. This episode basically just confirmed that. There’s no way that they’re going to end all of this within just six episodes.
I’ll get straight to the point: Seirin played against those two school and barely managed to squeeze out two victories without the help of their star players, Kuroko and Taiga. I was happy that they didn’t focus too much on those matches and that it was over before any of that supernatural crap had a chance to kick in. It was simple and funny, that’s all there was to it. That one scene where Riko slapped all the players in order to keep them focussed on the match (not sure how that even works) was one to remember. Do not be surprised if you start seeing wallpapers all over the place of Kuroko’s face with a slap mark on it.
Anyway, Atsushi’s team defeated their two opponents as well (without losing a single point I might add). No surprise there. It’s all quite predictable. There was simply no way that Seirin or Yousen would lose before they fought one another, especially since they made such a big deal about Taiga’s old friend being on that team and all.
Tatsuya, Taiga’s aforementioned friend, truly is a sad case. He doesn’t want Alex to treat him like a little kid and starts making a fuss over nothing. I honestly don’t care anymore. Break out all the supernatural moves you got, Seirin. Just defeat that little sh*t and his annoying, stuck-up team, although we all know that’s going to happen anyway.Read More
Oh yeah, there’s definitely going to be a third season. Will I write about that one as well? Doubtful. It all depends on how this one will end. I’m just happy that things are settling down on the supernatural. I’m finally starting to understand people’s frustration towards the author.
The match is over and Seirin has one. Big surprise, huh? Well, you know what usually happens after a big match. They takes things slow and boost up the comedy to an all-time high. You already know it’s about to get really weird when Riko-chan offers to cook. People were dropping like flies after Riko managed to pour in so many supplements that everyone ended up fainting.
This all led to a very amusing discovery; Taiga’s infamous master is none other than Alex, a busty blonde from abroad that seems to think that clothing is optional. Her arrival really spices things up and allows for a few good episodes. I certainly wouldn’t mind to get to know that particular character a bit better. She seems very interesting.
I’ll say it so there’s no misunderstanding: I love Alex. She’s great from what I’ve seen so far. She’s very carefree, has an eye for talent and she kissed Riko-chan like there was no tomorrow. That scene alone was more than enough for me to say that this episode was one of the best ones of the season. Kuroko no Basuke could really use more stuff like that.
Anyway, I’m also happy about one other thing. I’m happy by how Kuroko is progressing right now. No more supernatural skills on ridiculous abilities. He’s finally learning how to shoot. I’m not sure that the same thing can be said for Taiga, but I’m happy that Kuroko is slowly starting to look “normal”. Truly an episode to remember!Read More
What is this? I’m both very pleased and very disappointed? Its times like these that I realize that I’m truly weird. I really should be happy because one of my long-awaited Gin no Saji wishes finally came true. It’s about damn time, too!
So the world biggest idiot, Yugo, gets himself hospitalized after he collapsed on the first day of the festival. He had been burning the candle on both ends for a long time now, so this shouldn’t come as a surprise. The guy always found new methods to get loaded up with a lot of work and responsibility. I’ve read posts from viewers saying that it’s not always his fault, but come on… Nine out of ten times it really is.
This in itself isn’t a big deal. It is something I saw coming after watching only a few episodes of season one. However, I never really expected that this would be the time where Yugo’s parents would show up. I know that’s wrong. Parents would obviously come to visit their son if they hear that their son has been rushed to the hospital.
No, no surprise there. The surprise was how bad their relationship is. Yugo cannot deal with his father and I’m pretty sure it’s the same thing with his older brother. That man is so damn scary and strict that he probably doesn’t realize that he’s pushing his sons away, although he clearly has their best interest at heart. The fact that he spoke up to one of Yugo’s teachers like he did proves that.
Yugo missed out on the festival, had another bad encounter with his old man and I think his relationship with Aki has actually regressed a little. Nobody came to visit him, no matter what the reason, and everybody acted like it wasn’t that big a deal. Perhaps that’s normal in the country? I don’t know… I’m just worried about the next few episodes… We need more romance!Read More
