Review by rainbowboss
It's very unusual for a main character of a shounen manga series to be away from the spot light. The main character's name is aptly derived from stage-hands who dressed in black to imply that they are invisible and not part of the action on-stage.

Just as his name suggests, Kuroko serves more to support his team mates. He specializes in dealing complicated passes and feints, integrating sleight of hand tactics to make up for his averageness in everything else--in fact, he can't even shoot. Instead, he chooses to remain in the shadows to let his team mates' light shine brighter. This is especially true for Kagami (a team mate whose personality is closer to the usual main character persona). However, Kagami never overshadows Kuroko's discrete yet unquestionable brilliance.

Having the main character represent the link between the team members further emphasizes the importance of teamwork. Having such an interesting main character certainly brings a novel concept to a sport that has received more than its fair share of manga titles.

So if you are looking for a good sports manga, don't hesitate to give "Kuroko no Basket" a shot. :D Permalink " "
