Episode 22.5 and 23

Awesome~
Spoiler:
It was cool seeing how Kise got into the team and also getting to see the two members of the generation of miracles that we technically haven't met yet. I think knowing his backstory adds more weight to this particular match. Kick Aomine's neko Kise!! ::mischief::

I think they are just going to take this as motivation to get better, but it would be better if they take elements from the two teams to work on their basics, defense, and team playing fundamentals. I hope it's the latter.


Spoiler:
I think its both. This is obviously going to hype them up to the tenth degree but I think their couch also wants them to see how Aomine and Kise play when they are going all out especially since they most likely will be facing both of them in matches very soon.

Episode 24
Spoiler:
FAHH. gao that was intense. I really don’t know where this last episode is going to go. Seeing Kise fully manage to copy Aomine was super hype. I got shivers when he blew past him. It’s anyone’s guess who is going to take this round though. I still want Kise to win like super badly. I think it would be interesting if Kise beat him because then Aomine and Kuroko would both have a loss in their pocket and be trying double as hard for the Winter Cup.

Well, that was fun... and enough basketball for a few decades ::mischief::
Spoiler:
Definitely not a conclusion, but not a cliffhanger, either. But I think I have the formula down.
It was fun, but no need to see any more.

I am going to continue. The show is pretty formulaic for a sports anime. A little above the Prince of Tennis level type stuff with the "powers," but remains interesting for me to want more.

I give it a solid 7/10. Above average for fine, and since I want to watch more of the show, I believe it is good.
Fun show and a fun watch.

That was good. Already 11 episodes into season 2. I loved the match between Kise and Aomine and I think this first season only hinted at how compelling this show can be.

Episode 25

Spoiler:
Damnit! That was crushing...ah well guess Kuroko will have to be the one to unseat Aomine.


I will definitely be continuing~ not at one episode a day though, I'll probably be bingeing it over the next few weeks. Pretty hype to see where the show goes and I really want to see some of the players we've only gotten hints at.
