The story starts of with a transfer high school boy name Tetsuya Kuroko. He is now a former member from the  middle school basketball team “The Generation of Miracles”.  After meeting Taiga Kagami in Seirin High school, he decides upon becoming his partner to help him become Japan’s greatest basketball player.


Review –  If you are a hardcore fan of the legenadary anime “Slam Dunk” from the mid 80s, I gotta tell you, wait for nothing, just go and watch this anime, you’ll just love it. Its one of those anime which brings that urge, that feeling of curosity as to “what’s next?” or “what will happen on the next episode?”. Its totally unpredicatable. The best part of the anime series is that, it’s almost free from any such filler episodes. You will not get a chance to regret because each and every epsidode is just one of a kind. You can almost feel the emotions flow as you watch it. There are several factors why this anime will boost your inner passion, first and foremost, it shows a quite unique developing of the characters. As stated earlier, each character has a firm background, a reason why they are so into the game. Added to that you’ll see that it has amazing soundtracks to accompany somewhat seamless scenes, along with great visuals. So to sum up, this anime is worth watching and you should really watch it if you are a fan of Basketball.
PS. I finished the season 1 at one go.
