I'm extremely happy that someone has decided to set up a page for Kuroko no Basuke. I searched for it on goodreads in January to no success. Having added a few other new mangas, I was rather worn for tatter already. I'm a keen reader of Kuroko no Basuke on mangafox.
Kuroko is your no ordinary basketball player. He's a shadow. He is neither sensed or seen on court or in classrooms, unless he deliberately makes a move or talks. With a personality that blends itself with the background, hardly anyo

There was a team of basketball players from Teiko Middle School that were so skilled in basketball that they were called the Generation of Miracles. Each of them has a unique ability that made them dominate in their chosen field. They practically DEMOLISHED every other team there is and were always first. So it was natural that every high school wanted a member from this team to go to their school upon their graduation.

The story begins when the basketball club of Seirin High School was looking f

Okay, honestly, Sophie: a BASKETBALL series? That's what I've been asking myself ever since watching the first episode of the anime, after which I was completely sucked it. I watched the whole season in one week (which is really fast for me when it comes to watching anime) and afterwards I decided I wanted to read the manga, too. The anime followed the manga pretty closely, so it was a bit repetitive for me and nowhere near as excting as watching the anime was (with the exception maybe of the ...more

The rating is for Book 1, 4 Star.

The quick review below is for the entire series.
It is sport manga series, about high school basketball.

The cons:
- There are many overused plots/characterizations in this manga.
- So.. there won't be many genuine surprises.
- The final match and final scores are formulaic. The author had tried to mask the formulaic with some little twists at the climax. But still the emotional that built is still worse than Slam dunk, a well known basketball manga.

The pros:
- since

wow...no creí que me gustaría, pero me ha fascinado. Los mangas o animes sobre deportes no me llaman casi nunca la atención, pero este ha sido muy interesante. Sobretodo, Kuroko <3 Lo adoro.

Además los otros miembros del equipo son muy agradables. Aparte, Kagami también es genial, pero su personalidad es un poco difícil y aun tiene muchas cosas que aprender.

So after all the hype, and seeing various people read this, I decided to check it out. Now I am not one for sports anime/manga, but I was still hoping I might enjoy this one. I heard the epic tales of hot boys. Sadly, I didn't really see any hot boys. The boys in this book were just not my type. Kuroko was just bland, Taiga was just too hot-headed, Kise was just meh.
Also the art was just bad/terrible.
The basketball part was pretty awesome, and I love the coach and her ability.

This is my current favorite manga and anime. I started reading it when I came across it while looking for manga in mangahere.com. It's been a while since I read any sport manga so I checked it out. I was quickly hooked and couldn't stop until my eyes hurt. I finished until the latest chapter the next day. I could hardly concentrate on anything else. It was that good! I recommend it for all sport manga lovers and basketball lovers!

Pertama kali kenalan sama cerita ini waktu nonton anime Gintama. Meskipun nggak begitu ngerti lawakan-lawakannya, tapi episode khusus itu lucu buanget. Padahal sebelumnya semacam sadar juga sama manga dan animenya, tapi belum ada dorongan yang kuat untuk membaca atau menonton. Akhirnya setelah direkomendasikan seseorang, saya nonton animenya deh. Dan, jreng jreng.... Jatuh cintalah saya kepada Kuroko no Basket.

Temanya unik, tentang seorang pemain basket bernama Kuroko Tetsuya yang baru masuk SMA

Since I'm a fan of the anime; I have decided to read the manga to differentiate how different platforms of media coincide with each other. And like I am enjoying the anime right now, I also enjoyed reading the first volume of it.

This manga centers around the sports basketball but they make and put basketball in a higher, fun and exciting level also it tackles about friendship, teamwork and how can a person improve himself in times of failure or success. To be honest, you can't deny that anyone m

Esta no es la primera ni la segunda vez que leo este manga, además de que ya me he visto el anime, pero en cuanto supe que se iba a publicar en español... ¿quién se resiste a tener esta magnífica serie en casa?
Es la primera vez que lo leo en español, porque el manga online lo prefiero en inglés (mayor calidad de traducción no-oficial), es refrescante leerlo en otra lengua y es interesante ver cómo adaptan las expresiones (cosas que los fans no saben hacer), además, me alegro de que mantengan la

Read up to chapter 45. I'm enjoying it thus far even though I can't help but compare it to Slam Dunk. I almost wish it had been slower paced prior to the tournament, to get to know the rest of the teammates better. Koganei, of course, from the name and the habit of making a :3 face, makes me think he's somehow snuck over from Recca no Honou and become average-all-round in the meantime.

Looking at the later drawing style, I'm hopeful. But in the beginning, it's rather awkward in regard to body sh

Gerakannya awal-2 masih gak jelas, tapi makin berlanjut volumenya, gerakan operan dsb-nya makin mengalir~~ kayak sungai~

I think I can count this amongst my favorite manga series of all time, not that I've read that many to tell you the truth, but I've seen the anime adaptations for quite a few of them, and there are few who managed to grip me as well as "Kuroko No Basuke".

I think I started reading this because it was winter, and I couldn't be bothered to go out and actually exercise, so I watched sport movies, cartoons and anime. And so far my favorite has been this and The Prince of Tennis, Volume 1, which is a

I, - to put this bluntly as I can without crying tears of joy, - love this series. I even had to make a new goodreads shelf just for it. Seriously, you should read this.
It's about a basketball player named a kuroko and how he helps his High School team win a competition while kicking the asses of his over confidant and ego filled former Middle School team members who have each went to different High Schools.
Now, if only they would release it in English... I'll be waiting for you Kuroko!!!!!

Mediocre read, the sports manga is about basketball focusing on unbelievable games technics, which is where it went wrong, would have been ok if it had that with the focus on human drama, romance or comedy, either you make a believable sports manage or focus on something else. It’s boring when same crazy stuff is repetitive over and over for 270 chapters. It’s a drag and thank god it’s over.

Also I'm kinda into this right now in spite of how RIDICULOUS it is. (But who am I to talk about ridiculousness, I had a Prince of Tennis phase.)

The supposedly main character is a side-kick character. You don't read that everyday. I like the flow of the story in that it really details (or exaggerates) a split moment to help the readers understand. There are also interesting hooks at most of the chapters' endings. Although I'd like it if Kuroko became the star player but I guess it doesn't quite suit his character.

The very last chapter completely blew it by rushing the end and not providing enough closure to a rather flawless manga, sports-related or otherwise. Overall, this series was exhilarating, engaging, and had perfect pacing. Loved it.

Este tomo es prácticamente igual al anime pero aun así me ha resultado muy entretenido y divertido, es verdad que en cuanto a las jugadas el anime se luce mucho más pero es interesante ver cómo se desarrolla éste aspecto en el manga.
Ver como los dos protagonistas, Kuroko y Kagami se conocen, como entran en el equipo de básquet y van conociendo a todos los integrantes es genial, pero aún más cuando tienen su primer partido de práctica con un equipo fuerte y que además tiene a un miembro de la muy

Me encanto de hecho me gusto mucho que el anime sea tan fiel, eso si los dibujos son mas caricaturescos que los del anime pero entiendo el cambio eso no le resta fuerza al manga. No se cuanto me lleve leer los 30 volúmenes pero lo haré

Screw their basketball play styles. It's ridiculous. But that doesn't mean I hate it. In fact, I truly love every single character of this manga, ultimately the captain of Generation of Miracles, Akashi Seijuurou, who is the main antagonist character in this series.

Surprised? No, no, no need for it. He won the polling as the MOST FAVORITE CHARACTER, anyway, beats the main protagonist.

But that, also, doesn't mean I hate Kuroko Tetsuya. He is a unique character, a really unique basketball player.
