All my favorite side characters (Takao, Sakurai), getting screentime and saying interesting lines (canon confirmation of Seirin's true pairing even..), helped to carry the episode forward even with its predictable match outcome as is often the case with preliminary rounds and just random no name teams. Josei didnt even have any reasonably well designed character anyway and the moment he was shocked over Kiyoshi it seemed the fate was sealed.
Felt bad for laughing close to the end when the door was being opened and everyone sensed Kagami. Seemed kind of cheesy or overly serious of sorts in a weird way. Good for him if he can earn a place, though I cant see a scenario when all would be on the same team, would make for a wonderful if only scenario
Funniest episode so far to me. I loved that too high laneup.
Oh, the gate scene was better than i imagined. Really cool. But it lacked an epic ost.
And we'll see baby Midorima soon.

End card. Mehh card.
What an odd end card. THey could have kept that...
The card was ridiculous, me thinks.
As for the episode, it was great as usual. There were a few funny moments. Kiyoshi's happy, smiling face was so unique and cool. I couldn't stop laughing. Then, again seeing Kise and Midorima again was nice. A little glimpse of Akashi here and there was cool, too. Once again there was a little screen time for Himuro and Atsushi. I liked that. I liked the gate scene a lot. For me it was done quite awesome. And of course, Aomine was there. It was so funny the moment when Kagami got so irritated at not being able to score. And Kuroko calming him down. God!!! I really laughed so hard at that!!!! Kagami's back must hurt a lot. I wonder if we will see a match between Seirin and Shutoku the next episode according to the spoiler. It will be so awesome!! I can't wait to see it.
On another note, I read somewhere that Makoto Hanamiya from Kirisaki Daīchi High is going to be voiced by Jun Fukuyama. I really can't believe it! What is he trying to do? Make me want like that guy?! If anyone is interested, Jun Fukuyama voiced Kenya Oshitari in Prince of Tennis. I really liked it there. So I really don't know how this will sound. But I was quite shocked. Seems like Hanamiya is going to make an appearance the next episode.
The ending about the gate had me rolling of laughter.
"There's no evidence. But they all sensed it"
Ah, that was funny.
Daisuke Narumi (awesome name for some reason) is voiced by a really popular VA, Nobuyuki Hiyama, I definitely didn't expect him but it's a pleasant surprise.
Kiyoshi, huh....you know what they say about guys with big hands?

Yeah, we all know about the guys with big hands.
Oh, that reminds me.... it was so funny when Kiyoshi patted Kagami on the head a few times with his big hand. God!!!!! It was such a crack! ROFL at its best.
, did the GM sensed Kagami's aura? You said everything, funny ep, the match permitted to show Teppei's strength. Easy win, i am waiting to see Kuroko dribbling Midorima now.
Oh, yes... now that there is a new season, I am expecting new character songs and perhaps duet songs as well. It will be so awesome!!!

I don't know how anime related this is, but I got to know that there will Duet Series in January 2014! The first one will be with Kuroko and Midorima, and the other is Kagami and Aomine!! How cool is that!!!!!!!
I need to know when Kises is, but great for all, will hopefully get them.
So the episode started with a bang. We will be watching Seirin vs Shutoku for a while. This was one of the matches that I was dying to see. It was a nice episode as usual. It was great to hear Midorima's voice again. And well... as far as Hanamiya is concerned... he is voiced well. There was no doubt in my mind about it, really. Still I don't like the guy. It was a little funny with Momoi and Aomine though. The part about the pants was just hilarious. I can't wait for next episode. It should be awesome.
How the hell did Aomine jump like that when Momoi tried to kick him? He must be a Ninja. I knew his skills were too good for normal people :P
Hanamiya is finally here, and he's one of my favorite characters in the series. I love this guy.
Midorima and Kagami seem to be completely equal at this point. I'm a little hyped for this match since I missed (or rather ignored) it in the Manga. So I'm completely clueless about what's gonna happen.
It will be a battle of endurance then, the match starts well but with Kagami who can rivalize with Midorima and Kuroko's new dribble, I don't see Shutoku winning this, Teppei is here too. That "bad boy" is voiced by Jun, right?
Yeah, the bad boy Hanamiya is voiced by Fukuyama Jun.
Seirin vs. Shutoku in the first season was incredible; I hope this match is even better!
Midorima is usually cool, calm and collected, so I really enjoyed seeing a new side of him, his angry and determined side.Quote:
He seems like a very, very bad boy and I expect him to be pretty underhanded when playing basketball. And I agree, Jun is perfect as Hanamiya’s seiyuu.Quote:
I haven’t read the manga so I don’t have a clue what is going to happen, but for some reason I have this feeling that Seirin is not going to be the winner of the match…Quote:
