Anime + Basketball = Epicnesss. If you’re anything like me, you love anime and sports. I grew up watching a lot of classic Shounen Jump anime and others such as: Dragonball Z, Yu-Gi=Oh, Pokemon, Duel Masters, Shaman King and many others I than went on a hiatus from anime and manga.
Since I was pretty much done with it, but than I was casually surfing online and came across a video on google of Bleach, no not the washing detergent an anime called Bleach about Soul Reapers and cleansing people from Hollows and beating Aizen and his crew of Arrancars, the Soul Society and Captains were at war but Ichigo was strong and did his duty as a soul reaper beating bad guys.
I wanted to explore more genre’s in anime & manga so I asked on my Facebook for some recommendations, I one of them stood out and that anime was Kuroko no basket: Extra Game which is an upcoming anime movie scheduled for release on March the 11th this year (2017).Kuroko no basket: Extra Game is a anime movie based on the monthly manga.
The film is an adaption of Tadatoshi Fujimaki’s Kuroko no Basket: Extra Game sequel manga, recently there was a teaser trailer, that featured the five generation of miracles and Kuroko and Kagami wearing Vorpal Swords jersey’s. The slogan of this film is “The formation of the strongest dream team ever”.
The synopsis of this film is that it is a sequel to the TV series of the anime that takes place after Kuroko Tetsuya and Kagami Taiga become 2nd year high school students. An American streetball team name the Jabberwock are touring Japan and decide to play a friendly game against Japan, but unfortunately Japan loose badly their team is humiliated.
Riko Aida was the coach of Teiko, her father became the coach for Team Vorpal Swords, he decided it would be better if the Japanese team got the opportunity to have a re-match, but this time with a better Japanese team.
