scanlation for chapter 208 is out. akashi scans are still looking for a raw provider and i would love to help them out, but i dont have access to the raws either :X i hope someone can help them out soon..
Scrap my idea of Kuroko joining the regulars in the end of his first year.
Thanks to sapphylicious@tumblr for pointing this panel out.
He will probably just keep his first string status by the end of this competition. Or he will be demoted and Akashi will do something.
My hopes for the Light and Shadow moment got diminished.
Anyway, i forgot to ask. Is anyone interested in the japanese script that often is posted at 2ch every week?
I can't understand anything from google translator, but if there is interest i can post it often. I usually only post images when they appear there.
Ok. Now that I've read the chapter... I won't be saying anything different to my first post about the chapter. But I still think that we will be seeing Aomine taking matters in his hands and the born of the light-shadow thing. Also, I can't get enough of nice Akashi. Another thing... jeez! Kuroko was so nervous!!!! Poor thing. How can they expect him to do something amazing when it was his first start? But I guess that is what Teikou is all about. Winning is everything, huh? I have to say about Teikou's captain... Whoa!! What a beast he is!!! And Haizaki is ridiculous as usual.
I do remember Kuroko saying that. So perhaps, he is taking out of the first string only; not from the club. He will be still in second string or something of the sort. Then, I am thinking around that time they will start practicing with Aomine and maybe Akashi, too and Kuroko will develop his amazing passing abilities. And then he will be in the first string again with the number 6th on the bench. Kise will be there around that time as well so I am thinking all makes sense.
well i am glad that kuroko wont be demoted (?), its sad that he doesnt become a regular but that just fits kurokos motif (that he progresses by immense effort). im still curious how long this arc/flashback will be then...
the reason kuroko tells them about his past is to tell them about akashi, but werent akashis eyes (and personality?) and the gom in general 'normal' until their 2nd year? i think something happened at the end of it/beginning of the third year
i had been so absorbed in the current arc that i forgot some things. right now, the game against rakuzan is the next morning, but what do you think will happen afterwards? the plot had been revolving around kagami and kuroko wanting to beat the gom and akashi is the last one left, not to mention that kiyoshi wont be able to play the next year. its still too early to make theories or predictions because the flashback/teikou arc and the rakuzan/seirin (and shutoku/kaijou?) match will be very, very long but im still curious whats going to happen after that and the series seems to be going on too well and is so popular i doubt they would let it end like that
not to mention akashi mentioned an oath they all made (before the winter cup started) (and the pressure of everyone wanting the gom to play together again), i hope we will know more about the oath it seemed important when akashi made everyone meet him just to verify something (maybe everyone growing up and meeting/playing again? would be a good way to fulfill everyones wishes ) but then again, it would be hard to find a team good enough to play against..
If the series wasn't a success, it would end after the finals. But the second season of anime is being made, sales are great and rankings are good.
At first, i thought that Kuroko would be Akashi's only weakness. I thought that maybe he would negate the Emperor Eyes effects. But we saw that they couldn't stop Kise, so i scrapped that theory.
As i said before, i'm expecting Seirin to be crushed hard. It's gonna be a heartbreaking moment worse than Rakuzan-Shutoku.
Seeing these flashbacks made Rakuzan-Shutoku match even sadder.
I agree that it's gonna be a long arc, longer than Yosen-Seirin. Akashi is the main "enemy" and Kagami wants to confront him badly.
We know nothing about Rakuzan's 5th man and it might be revealed in this arc.
Plus, we will certainly get more flashbacks as usual between GoM matches.

In case anyone here hasn't seen it already, the date for the 2nd season of the anime was announced: http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news...-for-september
God... somehow, I don't want the match between Seirin and Rakuzan to start. Because I really don't see how Seirin will win against Rakuzan. I mean, they will be really smashed into the ground. I really don't see how they can overcome Akashi and co. Well... hopefully I am wrong about it.
I was curious about the aoth, too. I am thinking that maybe it is something like they promised each other to meet again in high school and play against each other... maybe?
Ah... I hope this manga goes even longer and gets prolonged as much as possible. Since it is quite popular and even there will be a 2 season to the anime, it can't be any other way. But what I am expecting after the Winter Cup is done, is perhaps the Nationals or something. It will be cool to see everyone together in a team.
P.S. I just want to say how happy I am about the 2 season of the anime!! Hurray!!! Too bad it will be in September!! Too long!!!! But oh well...

Yes it is. I was about to post it. :P
But it will probably be changed to an image saying that you shouldn't hyperlink to baidu. Use some host site like ImageShack, ImageBam or PhotoBucket to avoid the problem.
And some nice news.
