Kuroko's Basketball (黒子のバスケ Kuroko no Basuke) is a Japanese manga about basketball written and illustrated by Tadatoshi Fujimaki (藤巻 忠俊 Fujimaki Tadatoshi). Started in December 2008, Kuroko's Basketball tells the story of a high school basketball team trying to make it to nationals. An anime adaptation by Production I.G began airing on April 7, 2012.


Once upon a time, the basketball team of Teikō Middle School rose to distinction by demolishing all competition. The regulars of this team became known as the "Generation of Miracles". After graduating from middle school, these five stars went to different high schools with top basketball teams. However, a fact few know is that there was another player of the "Generation of Miracles", the phantom sixth player. This mysterious player is now a freshman at Seirin High, a new school with a powerful, if little-known, team. Now, Tetsuya Kuroko, the sixth member of the "Generation of Miracles", and Kagami, a naturally talented player who spent most of middle school in America, are aiming to bring Seirin to the top of Japan, taking on Kuroko's old teammates one by one.


Kuroko's Basketball is written and illustrated by Tadatoshi Fujimaki, and has been serialized in the manga anthology Weekly Shonen Jump starting December 7, 2008. The chapters have been published into tankōbon volumes by Shueisha with the first being released on April 3, 2009. As of September 2012, over 180 chapters and 19 tankōbon volumes have been released.
