Kuroko promised to become Kagami's shadow and helped him achieve his goal. one team after another, they took out the past members of the "Generation of Miracles".
for someone who knew nothing about basketball, i was hooked to the series since its very first episode. Kuroko and his sudden appearances startled every other characters in the series was what made the series so interesting. there were enough funny moments that lightened the intense competitions, but still plentiful of character development to have us rooting for them. the exciting duo held the spotlight for Seirin High, while the remaining characters boost them in any ways that they can.
