I knew this had to be a great volume because, well, all volumes of Kuroko’s Basketball are great but in this particular case you can judge a book by its cover. And a stern Aomine standing there all ominous is the sign of an awesome volume of manga.
This volume opens with one of my favorite scenes ever–the hot spring scene! Woo! Not only do I love the antics in the hot spring, the meeting and interaction between Kuroko, Aomine, and Kagami at the vending machine always makes me smile.
It’s training time and Kagami is off to secret training back in the states via Murican Airlines. O.o Then, after that famous, scissor-excessive meeting with the Generation of Miracles, it’s time for Seirin to face those black-jerseyed badasses of To-oh! If you can’t tell already, this is probably my favorite game in all of Kuroko’s Basketball. So although I admit to loving every volume of Kuroko’s, this volume kept me smiling and my heart racing (just a little) the entire time.
And I have to admit, I just love the stupid after-chapter bloopers. They’re brilliant.
