Hey guys >w< Who else here is insanely addicted to Kuroko no Basuke!? -waves both arms up franticalllyyyyy-
Gotta share my thoughts because I can't stop thinking about it! TBH, YES I'm there for the hot hot bishounens!
HOW DID YOU FIND OUT ABOUT KUROKO NO BASUKE? I first got to know Kuroko no Basuke by coincedence I turned on the TV around 10 and they keep showing commercials about the first airing of episode one. It looked pretty interesting so I waited until 11pm for the first episode and even though I couldn't understand all of what they were saying I got hooked! It was destiny! After that I started doing my own research and started reading the manga too. I even bought manga in the local stores and had fun time with my dictionary practicing my kanji ah~
I watched the next episode bec of this pic <3
MANGA v.s. ANIME I gotta say the anime is what got me into it in the first place. Episode 1, I was expecting it to be another one of those "I'm gonna be the very best no one ever was" kind of sport games but then when I find out WHUT!? THat guy specialized on PASSES!? LOL. A support man for a main character was pretty interesting. And I love his hair color ahehehe.... But I noticed lately the anime's quality is getting worse and worse -_- Lots of face deforms and the animation isn't as smooth anymore. I guess that the same thing that happened to Ao No Exorcist. Episode 1 had incredible animation then it deteriorates from there, and the finale is where they all call back their good animators.
Over all, I love the manga more! Because dear SENSEI has improved a lot over the years. Just look at the covers! You can easily tell how far he/she has come. The face isn't weird anymore, the coloring is nicer and the anatomy is sooooo much better sexier first book: later books:
In the anime, they made Kagami funnier. hi, THIS IS JAPANESE LUNCH TIME RUSH!
But the manga plot flow feels better. I can see that in the anime they're starting to cram some important scenes. I hope they don't cut out too many T^T
They also made Momoi much sexier and 'kawaii' in the anime, she looks like a whole 'nother girl haha... oTL Manga: Anime:
Fujimaki Tadatoshi - Sensei, I love your hot guys collection so much! I can totally read FUJOSHI in your name.
Merchandise and other Goods There hasn't been much merchandise yet. At first they started with the generic chibi file folders which sold in ANIMATE. Then they had these little metals straps. But none of those really interested me until the GASHAPON capsule toys came out! :thumb298842512: It was also by coincidence that I went to Shibuya that day bec I just felt like it, and it was the first day they were released! DIBSSSS I think I spent 4000 yen on these on the first day. After a week or so, they finally sold these in Ikebukuro too (where I live) and it sold out after 2 days! Can you believe it!? I think they weren't ready for the popularity and underestimated the NEED of the fans lol. Now that this is out of production, I think 1 of them sells for a good $20. The set around $60 maybe. I really want the second set to come out--- I NEED MY TEPPEI and AOMINE! They better be there. The latest merchandise is a FANBOOK. I'm not into fanbooks, they usually only have a few pages of really goods ones... TnT I want the OFFICIAL ART BOOK. Oh, they also have a novel btw. About the time of the "generation of miracles" while they were still in Teikou Middle School. 2 books I think.
I can see that the fans are rapidly increasing in DA. At a frightening rate! Scary because, TBH fans can ruin the real thing. Of course, we all want to spread the word, but it easily gets worn out if it's over used. Hm, I don't really know but I'm thinking that that is what happened to Naruto. Asides from the bad fillers and movies. You know, cause, not everyone can agree on one thing. Even just the pairings, it's hard to find a hand full of people who agree. Some like Kise x Kuroko, some like Kagami x Kuroko, and who am I to judge if anyone is into Basketball x Kuroko. SO what I'm saying is, it's not just whether you're into yaoi, het or OC pairings. It's really hard NOT to get carried away and other's preferences clash a lot. Example, if someone was really in love with Kise and starts making OC pairings, but then someone else is into Aomine x Kise, they might find the other quite self indulgent and ruin each other's fun. Just saying, people can make fan art all they want but please don't start being too obsessed and hate on everyone who doesn't see your point TAT;; Scary scary fans...
Personally I like: Kagami x Kuroko Kise x Kasamatsu Aomine x Kise Midorima x Takao Teppei x Hyuuga x Izuki Murasakibara x Himuro
WHERE IS THIS GOING? Are you updated with the manga? Lately I don't like how they have to shout out their skills name's before doing it LOL. It's a shounen jump trait but ._. C'mon... It's basketball hahah~ YES HIMURO IM TALKING ABOUT YOU. I love you to bits but you don't have to announce that you're doing a Mirage Shot every time. XD;; There was this thread that was talking about just how REALISTIC can this manga be. It's true MISDIRECTION can be done in real life but who far can the story go with out the MANGA-esque moves right? Some people say that they don't like Kuroko no Basuke at all because it's for kids. If they're gonna watch basketball anime they'd stick to Slam Dunk.
CHARACTER SONGS Have you heard it!??!?!?! I never knew Kagami could sing like that it was orgasmic so good!!! Ranking?
Kagami #1!! I like his MICHI NO TOCHUU
Takao #2!! F.O.V. and Ace-sama ni Banzai are BOTH SO GOOD! He's a rock star. I was wondering why a secondary character has his own character CD, then I heard his voice. OOOHHH!!!
Kuroko #3 I like both of his songs =w= it's cute.
Midorima ; Same seiyuu as Sebastian from Kuroshitsuji, HAWT VOICE!
Kise ; I'm so sorry Kise, you should stick to being a model.
So yup, I think I ranted quite a lot now. Please share your thoughts as well xD
I forgot to bring my pen tablet so I can't dish out new art -^- Gotta release all this Kuroko No FRUSTRATION somewhere!
I love the anime , it´s pretty good , but then i started to the read manga , and i fell in love , so much better , the anime ended , in the best freaking part , WTH??? , i keep reading the kurobasu manga right now , my favorite characters are Kurokochii ( i´m a Kuroko girl yei!) because he never gives up , he loves basketball more that anything, and even if he´s not the most fantastic player , he always tries to improve himself, Kagami , i love him , he´s so funny , and awesome ( and so hot , i can´t lie xD) , and such a badass player , i love him *w* , and last , but not least Midorima , omg i love him , such an awesome player , so arrogant , and tsundere , i just can stop watching it , and he has glasses ( omg i love guys with glasses XD) , all these 3 point shots, so awesome , so tsundere , so freaking hot , ok i really love Kurobasu seriously , but i think people should be more respectful with the others, and the things that they like, and definitely yes , some fangirls are pretty creepy O_O
Yeah ikr! it's full of bishounen and awesomeness! just that im worried for its future since rabid fans CAN ruin a good fandom. cant wait for the next season! i hope they show it in winter since its the winter cup time hahah~
I'm gonna check out the manga since you seem to love it and your art based on it looks sweet I'll let you know what I think, I also love basketball and never checked out any anime/manga that is basketball related, so I'm excited.
I didn't know you lived in Ikebukuro ._. I just think of Durarara haha.
God i just finished catching up and i was like "GAH KUROKO HOW DO YOU GET THIS ADORABLE AND AWESOME." but yeah KagamiXKuroko all the way and I'm kind of wondering about KagamixAomine XD cause that's be interesting... BUT JEEBUS THIS SHOW.
I found out about it through a random pic of Kuroko I saw on google. It was fate! (:
I started out reading the manga; when they made an anime for it, I tore up the walls in excitement, but I honestly prefer the manga for the same reasons. The art definitely improved for the manga o:
Oh god, at first I couldn't really decide what my OTPs were, it seemed like everyone x everyone ... everyone x kuroko ...I had to read further but once I decided, it turns out I prefer all of the ones you listed, specially Kagami x Kuroko and Kise x Kasamatsu...but then I'd wanna stick Aomine somewhere in all this haha XD
Dude, if KuroBasu merchandise was within reach, I'd spend so much that my wallet will shed tears of despair for me orz I JUST WANT A LITTLE KUROKO TO CALL MY OWN.
I just started reading it a little bit away and am going slowly at it because I'm also reading Prince of Tennis, Beelzebub, and some shoujo one I can't remember the name of, plus keeping up on all the updates of other ones. I actually started reading it because I saw your comics and was like "Meh, what da heck?"
I watched the first episode because i heard it was getting pretty popular and wanted to check it out, though i have to admit i really didnt like the look of it before i watched it , i thought i would never like and anime about basketball. Kuroko no baske is amazing! the whole plot is just hahewrnetemt!! i havnt started reading the manga yet. I figured that stuff would be missed out and it would be kinda different than the anime so im going to read it after the end of the anime, that was my decision~ and yeah i totally agree, the animation is getting more derp, i love the new op and ending though.. ;D It seems like the series is getting far more serious. When seirin went again shutoku i swear my heart exploded and i found myself shouting at my laptop ^^'' i have become totally obsessed with this anime, my sister has too. We have heard all the theme songs..kuroko's is my favorite >w< and well you cant really blame the fandom with the pairing bashes..the tension between all of them, especially if you have seen the latest episode! its like the generation of miracles are all kuroko's evil ex boyrfriends /shot but if i were to ship anything it would be kurogami, that pairing is just anways i seem to have spammed you so im going to stop there but i could talk about this all day long xD
I wanted to read the manga after too but I couldn't resist xD hihi <3 Plot wise it's not so different yet compared to the manga but I can FEEL the short cuts coming soon. Hope they dont skip the okonomiyaki part T^T I think they will tho...
It's really intense! But wait until you see the fight against Touou that one will really make you explode--- everywhere!
HAHAHAH IKR!!! It's totally Kuroko x everyone O___O everyone wants him. It's what makes this anime so awesome.... oTL
yeah,there is going to be probably going to be short cuts..lets just hope that its a long running series~ <3 x'DD the fact that everyone wants him just makes me laugh, im not liking this Aomine thing though..because of the latest episode Tumblr has been spammed with Aomine x Kuroko..:/ Now that you have mentioned the Touou game i cant actually wait~! this show has so many feels, i cant keep up!! >A<
indeed~ Aomine needs to back off, hes being mean to taiga too DX therefore i dislike him. Hopefully the Touou match will come soon, though because ive now left school i have too much free time so im tempted to read the manga..
meh, i want the next episode now!! i wish it would hurry up, im dying here! .A. Theres not alot of decent ongoing animes so im just left here, sat in anticipation for saturday..
I watched the first episode because I'm an officer for my uni's anime club. It was the last meeting of the semester, or something, and I wanted to show them Slam Dunk... but when we went to download the first episode, we could only find it with Norwegian subs??? So we looked around and saw that Kuroko was inspired by Slam Dunk, and showed that instead. it all went downhill from there, I read the manga during finals week when I should have been studying, and I drew Kuroko all over one of my exams. >w<''''
I love Kagami/Kuroko, but I like the significance of past!Aomine/Kuroko. I don't ship any of them sexually, really, more of an unbreakable bond and just fhbhbfhbhjdhjdbs hjdbshjs dbhfbsjkdfbdsjbhsbhja
They only found it when we showed it to them, and the response was about 50/50. Some of them were all like, "aaaaw cute boys and sports and omg that picture at the end!" but some of the members didn't like it because of how much the anime appeals to fujoshi. I think we had about 35 people there that night, but most of them are girls, soooo.
But I'm the only one (as far as I know) who pursued it after episode 1 XD (I kept making bad puns on facebook about it, like, "this anime is really ballin`!")
If what you're asking is how did we find it to show the club, it was really random. When we're finding anime to show we just scroll down lists of anime and pick things at random. If it sounds good, we show it
Wooooah i'm so jealoussssss, you get to see all the new japanese merchandise!!! I am just focusing on watching the anime, I seriously flip every saturday online waiting for it… I just yesterday posted a chibi of Kuroko I drew for another artist birthday who likes him too! ^_^
But you forgot one determinant characteristic of the anime... ALL THOSE DAMN BL HINTS. They're everywhere! Kise is so gay for Kuroko that I actually felt embarrassed when I watched the series with my male friends ahjkdhj. The manga somehow felt more focused on basket and comedy.
Anyway, I really can't tell which I like best. The anime has really nice voices (Suwabeahdshfk), unexpectedly good music and it makes my fujyoshi mind go full throttle! The manga is really funny, nicely drawn and doesn't have that animation problem that makes me cringe sometimes.
As for my favourite characters, they're Kuroko, Kise, Kagami and more recently Aomine (breaking my K combo, tcheh) ever since I heard him speak in that sweet, sweet voice of his. Favourite pairings come and go, but right now it's probably KagamixKuroko with a yandere!Kuroko, ever since I read NALIS' doujinshis. So cute! I recommend all of her Kurobasu djs btw, they're soooo good
OH YES! Definitely the BL hints!! Almost all the "see you again" pictures features them being BL hintish! >A< SOLD SOLD SOLD! haha~ they just can't keep their hands off of each other! and the fact that all of them has a certain SPECIAL SOMEONE. The most cannon one would be Midorima and Takao. I think they're married. ._.
The voices! Oh yes the voices omggg I really like the casting and of course anime wins because it moves, has voices and colors hahah. I just hope they clean up the deforms >x< They're wasting the goods scenes.
Kaomine! He's too hot to ignore... what is NALIS doujinshis? that's the name of the manga artist/group? OAO wheeere can I find the wonders??....
Yeaaaah I love how they all get paired up!... Except Kise ;w; I always feel so sorry for him, being rejected all the time even though he's such a sweetie
NALIS is a circle, doujinka's name is Nanami Noriko, look her up! You might know her from her Gintama and KHR works (if you read doujinshi? I assume you do ), although I must say it's her Kurobasu djs that made me a fan! I've been translating some of her doujinshi for a french scanlation team called Fairy Rose.

mochiron KUROKO dayo !!! (i would type in jap but i cant be bothered) the anime drew me in first too X), my sister read the manga and told me to read it last year, i was like NAH id rather stick to the manga and anime i have rather than some weird basketball manga. then i watched the anime asdfghjkl; MIND BLOWN, it was soooo good and kuroko-kun was sooooo cute (>w<)b i first found your page when i was searching for Kuroko no Basuke merchandise >w< and then the link to your gashapon figures popped up X)
i want them to hurry up and make kuroko no basuke figures and nendoroids (Q u Q)
the fanbase of kuroko no basket was tiny before they got the anime and then theres so much kuroko no basuke fandom surrounding the internet
