Kuroko fans rejoice! The massively popular sport anime series Kuroko’s Basketball, or Kuroko no Basuke, will live on past the third season. This time around, Kuroko will be debuting in theaters, since the production of a theatrical film has officially been green-lit. This exciting announcement was made at the KuroBas Cup 2015 event in Japan on Sunday. The manga series launched in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump back in 2008 and the first season of the anime aired from April to September of 2012. The hit series has a total of three seasons with the most recent season having ended on July 1st of this year.
Kuroko’s Basketball has an immense fan-following and has remained a fan-favorite sports anime for quite some time. The series features a large group of characters to root for and basketball matches that are more intense than real life basketball matches (at least to me). Anime News Network describes the first season’s plot as:
Tetsuya Kuroko is a former member from the legendary middle school basketball team known as "The Generation of Miracles". Upon meeting Taiga Kagami he decides upon becoming his shadow to help him become Japan's greatest basketball player.
All three seasons of Kuroko’s Basketball are available for streaming on Crunchyroll, so if you’re a fan of sports animes, or sports in general, then be sure to check out Kuroko’s Basketball.
