How to Watch Kuroko no Basket anime? Easy Watch Order Guide

“I am the shadow that has overcome the light.”

Tetsuya Kuroko

Among the five stunning players of the miracle generation of basketball, there was a sixth, equally talented yet unnoticed player who turned his phantom-like nature into an unusual gift.

Kuroko no Basket is an anime narrating the story of the sixth player, Tetsuya Kuroko, and a hardworking Taiga Kagami aiming to beat the arrogant five and becoming the finest players of all time. Each match goes on for 2-3 episodes with emphasis on all of the players involved in the match. Their movements, though exaggerated, increase the intensity of each match and makes the anime very engaging.
