After the winter cup, a new team from the US, Jabberwock, has come to Japan to play with the other teams. After humiliating Japanese basketball, the Generation of Miracles along with Kagami form the dream team and go against them in a battle for honor.
This was THE most awaited thing for me after season 3 finished and let me say, I was disappointed. On hearing from all my friends who read the manga, I was super excited to see how the movie itself would turn out. Firstly, the animation quality was poor for today’s modern anime. The characters looked… different. That being said, the anime felt slightly smoother compared to the actual anime. This movie was very very very rushed. I hated that! The movie started off with the introduction of the Jabberwock team (after Kagami and Kuroko of course) after their crushing victory over a smaller (yet quite strong) Japanese team. Basically, the plot of the story. We are also shown a glimpse into what street basketball looks like. This was actually quite entertaining and fun to watch. But suddenly, after getting so badly humiliated, Riko’s dad wants a rematch and assembles our beloved Generation of Miracles with Kagami for what is supposed to be a match for the ages. But it wasn’t. 1 week of practice shown in 10-30 seconds and the first two quarters of the match zip by in like another 5-10 minutes. It was only when they said ‘half-time’ when I realized how fast paced this is. The best characters this time were Kise, Aomine and Murasakibara. But I guess the director knew that Murasakibara was my favorite character so they took that way from me too! Kagami did ABSOLUTELY nothing. Ya sure, he went into zone and everything towards the end with Aomine which was pretty cool. But it was honestly boring. Kuroko as well. Just because the name is ‘The Basketball Which Kuroko Plays’ does not mean he HAS to contribute to the last shot. If there’s any credit I give this movie it’s how awesome the dunks from Aomine and Kise were and how AMAZING Kise was this time. AWESOME! Also, the secret behind Nash’s character and his character in general were really cool! Next time, my only suggestion to the creators is to make a season out of it. Not a movie. Seeing the movie made me realize that if the same thing was in the form of season 4, I probably would’ve been mad in love with it. That being said, no harm no foul done. Expectations not met. Wouldn’t really recommend it unless you’re a crazy KnB fan. Stopping off at Rakuzan vs Seirin was more than enough to keep the anime strong and good! Overall average.
I would give this movie 3/5 stars.
