Lately, I've been addicted to this manga and its anime. It began when I accidentally encounter Kuroko no Basket manga - or like the translation in my country, Kuroko's Basketball- in Gramedia book store. I enjoy playing basketball and was a part of basketball club in my college. Well, even though I'm hardly a good player since I only began to play basket in university. Ho ho ho. My dribble, pass and drive is bad but my shooting ability is terrible. My eyesight is awful and because I don't like to use my glasses when I playedbasketball, I end up almost always miss my shoot. By the way, I was feeling nostalgic when I saw this manga in book store. So nostalgic that I end up bought it. Moreover, I like Shonen Jump - I love lots of manga from there (One Piece, Bleach, D.Gray-Man, Naruto, Gintama, Hunter x Hunter, etc) - and I know that Kuroko no Basket is one of the series from Jump. I immediately falling in love with its protagonist, quickly watch its anime and love it to the point that it's almost obsessive. He he he.
Seirin High School Basketball Club
Kuroko no Basket is a shonen manga that follow the story of Kuroko Tetsuya, a basketball player who excels at passing and Kagami Taiga, a basketball player with enormous spirit and talent, on their journey to beat "Generation of Miracles" and become no 1 in Japan with their team, Seirin High School basketball club. The reception for the manga is generally well. In 2013, it became the 3rd best selling manga in Japan behind and , sold more than 8 million copies.
One of Kuroko no Basket's main strength is its interesting characters and interaction between them. I thought this manga is popular with yaoi fans even though it's not a yaoi manga. Having read the manga, I realized that the friendship between its characters is touching and well-written (Really, boy's friendship is something that girls adore. Even I kind of jealous sometimes with how boys treat their boy friends. It looks so fun), and so I kind of understand why some people wish they're more than just friend (laugh). Okay! I'll tell you my favorite characters from it!
Kuroko is the main protagonist of this manga and I really like him! Maybe it has something to do with the fact that my most favorite thing from basketball game is passing. Rather than the sight of the ball going through the hoop, my heart race more when I saw players pass ball to each other to made the ball advanced on the court. Then here is Kuroko, a basketball player who excels in passing. I love everything about him, his deadpan, straight forward, hard-working, calm and kind personality. Even his unnoticeable presence and his atrocious bedhead.
