Kuroko no Basket: Plot

Tetsuya Kuroko is a boy with no presence. His basketball skills are lacking in themselves. Yet he is the part of ‘Generation of Miracles’ and the ‘Phantom Sixth Man.’ To elaborate, Tetsuya Kuroko was in the Teikou Middle School basketball team that dominated all other middle schools. Even though he had zero presence and almost no basketball skill, he could pass the ball. Kuroko is actually the ‘Phantom Sixth Man’ who is known to be the shadow of the ‘Generation of Miracles.’ While Seijuro Akashi, Shintaro Midorima, Ryota Kise, Daiki Aomine, and Atsushi Murasakibara had potential in them, they still needed Kuroko for a fine play. And Kuroko was happy enough playing with the five. However, nothing is constant, right?

The Teikou High’s ‘Generation of Miracles’

After each of the five had their raw potential polished, nobody needed Kuroko. The six friends, which fans looked up to, chose different paths and went to different high schools. Kuroko, in search of a team that could surpass the team once ‘Generation of Miracle’ is in, joined the Seirin High School. There he joined the basketball team and formed pair with Kagami, who has just returned from America. After declaring that Kuroko would be Kagami’s’shadow’ and Kagami is his ‘light,’ Kuroko’s former friends challenged them.
