From the very beginning, Kuroko's Basketball has been a remarkable show that has set the bar extremely high. However, this time around, it would be unwise to get too excited. Read more to find out the fate of Season 4 of Kuroko's Basketball!
What is Kuroko's Basketball about?
Many interesting subgenres of anime exist, but the sports subgenre has recently seen a surge in popularity. From its very first episodes, the sports anime “Kuroko no Basket,” one of the most popular sports anime in Japan, has indeed set the bar extremely high. This show has a devoted following among basketball fans and anime fans alike, thanks to a variety of intriguing elements that keep viewers engrossed until the very end.
Thrilling dunks and impressive moves have been a staple in this show's basketball coverage since season three. ‘Kuroko no Basket', in contrast to most anime, focuses on the show's fun, excitement, and drama rather than its technical aspects. Ultimately, all we need is a little bit of drama to keep us hooked on a TV show. However, this does not imply that the show lacks harmony. So, get ready for a few surprises!
Because the show doesn't focus solely on one subject, but rather focuses on two: the use of relationships between characters who are either playing for the same or opposing team and the plot focuses on how well each player performs on the field. This is the best choice for sports anime fans who also enjoy a good amount of drama, so those who have already invested a significant amount of time in watching the show are eagerly anticipating the release of its fourth season. In the event that “Kuroko no Basket” is renewed for a fourth season, here is everything we know so far.
Will there be a Season 4 of Kuroko's Basketball?
Take a trip down memory lane with us. On April 8th, 2012, the first season premiered and ran for 25 episodes until September 22nd, 2012. As a result of the first season's success, on October 16, 2013, fans were treated to season 2, which ran until March 30, 2014. There were 25 episodes in the second season, which was hugely popular and spawned a third season, which aired on January 11th, 2015, and ran until June 30th, 2015. Kuroko no Basket Movie 4: The Last Game was released on March 18, 2017, and the prayers of fans were answered.
In the case of a fourth season, the prospects for its production are bleak. That the manga series has been declared “complete” could also be a factor. Fans are left satisfied and happy at the end of the film, which has a clear and concise ending. It should come as no surprise to anyone who has seen the film that there appears to be no scope for any side stories to carry the franchise forward, as even the characters who were in their third year have graduated. The show's characters have also endeared themselves to viewers. ‘Kuruko no Basket' fans are therefore less likely to make it to season 4.
Is there a release date?
Prior to Netflix streaming the anime series, it must first air in Japan. As of this writing, there hasn't been another season since Season 3 aired in 2015. The absence of a fourth season means there is no set date for the film's release.
But we're not ready to give up on a new season just yet. We may see a reboot in the future. However, Netflix currently has all three seasons of the popular anime available.
Is there a trailer?
Season 4 of Kuroko's Basketball has yet to receive a trailer. We'll let you know when the trailer is out.
What is the plot of Kuroko's Basketball?
‘Kuroko no Basket' begins with the story of Teikou Junior High School's basketball team, which is well-respected for having won three straight series championships.
Despite their opponents' best efforts, the crew's five most important players regularly leave them in a state of total despair. But soon enough, they'll all be competing against each other as high school students at different colleges and universities.
Taiga Kagami and Tetsuya Kuroko are two new members of the basketball team at Seirin High School. Kuroko is an odd choice for the team, despite Taiga's obvious talent and extensive and powerful presence in the United States. Because he lacks both excellence and power, Kuroko's only real advantage in court is the ability to sneak around without being noticed.
During the tournament, he is dubbed the “phantom sixth man” of the team for his stealthy attacks and ability to pass the ball without being seen. Throughout the Interhigh Championship, the anime follows the journey of Taiga and Kuroko, as well as the other members of the Seirin High School gaming team.
As a side note, they come up against some real professionals, some of whom used to be on Taiga and Kuroko's Teikou High School team and possess exceptional skills that only Taiga and Kuroko can handle.
What is the cast?
It could be expected that all the previous Voice Actors could return to reprise their roles, and in addition, some new characters could have their debut. Since the source material is finished, we don't have any clue as to who might be returning and what new faces could be coming. If we need to confirm some characters, they could be:
- Kensho Ono as Kuroko Tetsuya
- Ryohei Kimura as Ryouta Kise
- Yuki Ono as Taiga Kagami
- Daisuke Ono as Shintaro Midorima
- Hiroshi Kamiya as Seijuurou Akashi
- Soichiro Hoshi as Yukio Kasamatsu
- Naoki Mizutani as Kōki Furihata
- Chiwa Saito as Riko Aida
Although the news on a fourth season is grim, we hope to see this series get more love in the form of another season as its movie was one of the most thrilling anime films as per reviews. We'll continue to cover this anime as we get any official updates. Meanwhile, check out other news on your favorite anime!
