I knew I would probably get hooked on this right away, so I was waiting until I had some down time to start it. For a while now, I think Haikyuu!! has been the only sports anime I’ve been watching consistently. So prepare for me to constantly compare Seirin to Karasuno. 🙂
I instantly fell in love with Kuroko and Kagami as characters. They’re both so direct and honest with each other and the people around them. Kuroko seems like the quiet type at first, but he doesn’t sugarcoat things. He blatantly tells Kagami he’s no match for the Generation of Miracles. And Kagami seems like the hot-headed type who would deny that he’s worse than them, but instead he believes Kuroko and even admits that he’s slightly hurt by the comment. And then you would also think maybe Kuroko’s kind of a jerk, but then he follows up with “You suck on your own, but maybe together we can beat them.” He’s got a real passion for basketball, though you can’t really tell by looking at his face.
I’m stoked about these guys, but I’m also eager to get to know the rest of the team a little better. Don’t be surprised if I don’t post again until episode 25. I tend to run through things I like at top speed!
