Here's a list of things we want to do in the wiki, why not help cross some of them off? Also feel free to make suggestions.

  • Create character pages.
  • Add images and summaries to episode pages.

Important Pages

When editing the wiki (particularly episode and volume pages) it's helpful to use this section as a reference guide.

Locations
When adding locations, don't forget to add parent locations. For example, when adding Japan to an episode or volume, Earth should also be added. Locations appearing in flashback sequences generally don't count.

Recurring Pages: ?

Objects
Objects should be specific rather than general, like Natsu's Scarf instead of just Scarf or Purgatory Armor instead of Plate Armor. General objects are being removed from the wiki.

Oh heck yeah my favorite B-Ball anime is back! Kise and Aomine were my faves in season 1.

@Sonata:

Well, I tried the anime a week ago. I thought it was like Free. Turns out it was like Kingdom Hearts since Kuroko's is Kagami's shadow. I'm on episode 10. It has been a blast watching it. Never saw a ninja in a basketball show. However, this is my first basketball show.

@Acura_Max:

My bad, I forgot to update it. I do it in a sec.

Ep. 26 was great. I didn't mind the English scenes. It sounded British or Australian. Finally, we get to see the giant wall from the Generation of Miracles.

Ep. 27- 28 was amusing. Kagami broke thru the wall and reach the Generation of Miracles's level. Despite that, he falls down on his ass.

It's a good thing they didn't show a panty shot. I was no, this show is too pure for this. Aomine just dodged Momoi's kick and jumped from the ladder like a boss.

Ep. 29 This episode got me pretty excited. I'm still debating in my head who i think is going to win. Kagami will eventually run out of his famous jumps and when that happens, Midorima will start making all of his shots like usual. At the same time though, Kuroko has his new unstoppable drive. At the very least it will be a interesting rematch.

I also can't wait to see what the remaining two Generation of Miracles can do, especially Akashi. He seems like a Jack of All Trades.

@Kobra678:

Of course lol. I actually just watched the first season and the current 2nd season all this weekend.

I did a marathon on the first season last summer when I finally took on a pal's recommendation. I didn't expect to like a sports anime. Prince of Tennis was my first, but I didn't finish it.

I'm not sure what Akashi's special skill is from looking at the other guys.

  • Kise - copycat
  • Midorima - sniper
  • Kuroko - stealth
  • Atsushi - wall
  • Daiki - shocktrooper

My thoughts as well. He could possibly be a genius tactician like a basketball version of Lelouche, but Momoi seems to already have claimed that title. As of now I'm assuming that he can do everything that the others can do, just not quite as well as them.

@Kobra678:

You're right. I recalled him playing some sort of chess game from season 1. Momoi is like a CIA intel operative because she visited Kuroko's team by the pool to gather data on them. Using her good looks to pass off as ditzy, pink bombshell.

I love the character evolution in this series. It was cool see Midorima and his teammates putting up a good fight against Serin. Midorima never passes, and now, he is a team player. I can't wait to see Kuroko's new drive in the next episode.

Man, they end it on a major cliffhanger. Midorima and Kagami - who wins this match?

Post by Kobra678 (3,140 posts) See mini bio Level 15

Man, Kuroko's new drive exceeded my expectations by a longshot. Shutoku had absolutely nothing that could stop him. I'd like to know how it works though. He probably slides under their legs or something lol. It was an awesome game, but I was kinda disappointed in the tie.

I liked Hyuga's back story and all, but to be honest I wish we could have got into more of Teppei's back story. His old team, the "Uncrowned Kings," seem really shady to me.

Junpei's hair was hilarious. Way to be a rebel.

Kagami and Teppei are in the same boat. These guys won't quit because some leg injury.

@Kobra678:

I wonder about how Kuroko's new drive works. This is the 2nd time I'm reminded of Kingdom Hearts. The whole shadow and light and now, drive.

Episode was great. Once a cheater, always a cheater. I was fooled for a moment. Looking forward to the Generation of Miracle clash.

Post by Kobra678 (3,140 posts) See mini bio Level 15

I really wanted Kagami to punch that guy in the face. Kinda annoyed that Kuroko stopped him lol.

As for the most recent episode, I actually wasn't surprised. In fact, I pretty much knew that they would win by Hyuga's 3's by the end of the game. All of the GoM are in the Winter Cup and it's gonna be awesome when they finally play each other.

Thanks to for uploading the images.

Some hot spring fan service and a big shocker, Aomine's team is going to be the Seirin's first opponent in the winter cup. Since Kuroko's team got nailed by Aomine's team back in season 1, I'm assuming this calls for an automatic win. You can't have the main team lose all the time.

Kuroko's new Ignite Pass Kai technique was awesome, but Aomine broke his spirit with that Kingdom Heart-esque quote and figuring how to counter both Kuroko's Vanishing Drive and Ignite Pass Kai (well with the help of Momoi).

Post by Kobra678 (3,140 posts) See mini bio Level 15

Wow, Kuroko must feel really bad right now. Everything he's trained for, just shut down like nothing. Aomine is a monster at this game. I want to see what Kagami has learned from being in America again.
