[KnB Challenge] Day 30 | What I Enjoy the Most About the Anime/Manga

Guys, omg, we’re at the end T-T. It’s a bit bittersweet, but I actually have a few more KnB posts coming sometime in December so stay tuned! Thank you to those that followed me through this month long journey! I was able to do it daily, save for one day. With that being said….

[KnB Challenge] Day 28 | Saddest Moment

Two Days Left of the [KnB Challenge]!!

Since yesterday we looked at the funniest moment of KnB, today we look at the saddest.

It wasn’t until my OWLS post about Aomine that really made me appreciate who he was, and realize the pain that he really endured. I had to re-watch a lot of these episodes for the post to get an idea. And this scene really broke my heart:

 

Aomine is utterly frustrated by the lack of competition with his talent blooming at a rapid rate. He walks out on team practices, and a mentor/coach should have found him and forced him to get back to practice and work with his teammates, after all, basketball is a team sport. But instead of whipping him into shape, the coach cowardly tells Aomine that he can just show up to games as long as he wins. Aomine is completely stripped of any hope he had been clinging onto to the sport that he loved so dearly. This is the moment the switch in Aomine is flipped as he embraces being a basketball god that no one can touch, even his friendship with Kuroko starts to break down at this point.

Ugh, so heartbreaking to see Aomine’s breakdown in this scene under the bridge in the rain.


What would you say was the saddest moment of KnB? Let me know in the comments below! 🙂

[KnB Challenge] Day 17 | Favorite Yosen Member

TGIF Friends! I’m so glad it’s Friday!
And we’re up to Day 17 of the [KnB Challenge]

Today’s feature looks at Team Yosen, a fictional school located in Akita, which is North-East of Tokyo. Yosen high is introduced in Season 2 of KnB, during the streetball tournament.

I’ve mentioned Yosen before as they’re the only team that feature a female coach, which I think is pretty awesome. But, I digress! Let’s get to who I would choose… Continue reading “[KnB Challenge] Day 17 | Favorite Yosen Member”

[KnB Challenge] Day 10 | Favorite Team

We’ve made it to Day 10 for the [KnB Challenge]

Author’s note: Still combating a cold or something so I won’t be going into much detail again on this topic. I really would though, but honestly I don’t have the mental capacity.

Teams, we all root for one when it comes to our favorite sport, and KnB has no shortage of them! With each GoM branching off as individuals and into their new teams to see who would be the best in the nation, we had quite a few choices. But there’s only ONE that sticks out to me and that would be… Continue reading “[KnB Challenge] Day 10 | Favorite Team”

[KnB Challenge] Day 6 | Favorite Minor Character

Welcome back to Day 6 of the KnB Challenge!

I love a good minor character. They’re there to support the story and support the main character’s. Whether they’re for comic relief, or if they hold a senpai/kouhai relationship with the leads, you’re bound to find a great character that you can’t help but take notice of.  Continue reading “[KnB Challenge] Day 6 | Favorite Minor Character”

[KnB Challenge] Day 4 | Least Favorite Female Character

Welcome to Day 4 of the KnB Challenge!

Okay, let’s be real here. There’s a total of FOUR women that have roles in Kuroko no Basket and honestly none of them have many faults. Surprised? Instead of me tearing down any of these girls, let’s talk about them in a positive light! I know, it seems hypocritical considering I trashed Makoto Hanamiya yesterday, but, there really is no bad female in this show. Although many of these ladies are minor characters, they have really strong roles, and it’s actually another aspect as to why I love this show! So let’s break it down!

[KnB Challenge] Day 3 | Least Favorite Male Character: Makoto Hanamiya

It’s Day 3 of the KnB Challenge! Today we’re looking at my least favorite of the men of KnB. There are quite a few to choose from, but when it comes to least favorite, is it safe to say he’s probably the number one character I probably hate the most on this series?

[KnB Challenge] Day 2 | Favorite Female Character: Riko Aida

And we’re back with Day 2 of the KnB Challenge! Today’s featured character has been previously discussed before in a very important series of mine: Women Crush Wednesday. To refresh your memory, Women Crush Wednesday is a play on “Woman Crush Wednesday” in which a female character is featured. My version of WCW focuses on strong females in anime; whether they be leads or background characters, these women have made their roles clear and their voices heard, and stand for something!

My favorite woman from Kuroko no Basket is none other than Riko, Aida.

[KnB Challenge] Day 1 | Favorite Male Character: Ryota Kise

Welcome to Day 1 of the KnB Challenge here at Archi-Anime.

Disclaimer: heavy fangirling ahead (uh I mean, we are talking about my favorite here)

If you follow me on twitter, seen me on discord, talk to me on LINE, seen my iPhone lockscreen, or even my Apple Watch screen, this answer is fairly obvious.
