I Am Kuroko [Episode 1]
The Teiko Middle School basketball club is an incredible strong team with over hundred members and three consecutive championships wins. Amongst the brilliant record, the generation of five prodigies was known as the “Generation of Miracles.” However, there was a strange rumor concerning the Generation of Miracles. Despite being relatively unknown and lacking a game record, there was one more member recognized by the five prodigies, a phantom sixth man.
The basketball club of Seirin Private High school is recruiting new members. Kagaimi Taiga (recently return from America) and Kuroko Tetsuya (previously from Teiko Middle School) register as new members of the club among others. The first training started with Aida Riko, a female coach, accessing the player’s body and abilities after asking them to take off their shirts. Aida whose father is a sport’s trainer has a special ability in collecting data and creating a training regimen from looking at the bodies and data, a skill she picked up from her father’s work place. She can foresee the strength and weakness by looking the bodies of the players. However, she found a perfect raw talent in Kagaimi Taiga and plenty of weaknesses in Kuroko Tetsuya.
After the training session, Kagaimi Taiga was shooting some baskets in a basketball court and was interrupted by the appearance of Kuroko Tetsuya. Kuroko Tetsuya then challenges Kagaimi Taiga to a game of one on one. Kagaimi then found out that Kuroko was so weak in basketball that he felt intimidated by him. He later told him to quit basketball as he is not talented in it. Kuroko oppose his advice and told him that he loves basketball and he is a shadow.
The next training session was a mini game between the seniors and the rookies. The match started with Kagaimi dunking all over the seniors and dominating the game. The seniors then counter his moves by double teaming him off and on the ball, restricting his movement and attacking options. The senior regain some points and were leading in the game. Kagaimi was furious and was scolding everyone until Kuroko asked him to settle down. Kuroko then asked his team mates to pass the ball to him. His team mates did what Kuroko asked and Kuroko ditched assists after assist to help his team close the gap. In the last second, he managed a steal and was alone for an empty layout which he misses and was rebound dunk by Kagaimi. The rookies won by a point.
Note: I am not elaborating much on Kuroko. Want to know why he is the shadow and the rumor phantom six man, you have to watch it to find out!
