Kuroko’s Basketball is all set to make its way to anime watchers all around the globe. Netflix is on the quest to import the best Japanese creations onto its own shelf. After several additions in 2020, they are roping in another hit Japanese manga show. Special emphasis on the sports genre is in the center of this latest acquisition. Haikyuu and Free! – Iwatobi Swim Club are some contemporaries of Kuroko’s Basketball in the latest popular wave.
Tadatoshi Fujimaki‘s Comedy Animation series has been a success since its local inception in 2012. However, the consistent and unpredictable writing has taken the anime from strength to strength.
When does the show start streaming on the streaming giants?
After a year of heavy demand from fans of the Japanese manga series, Netflix is finally fulfilling lots of wishes. 2020 was a bad year in many respects, but content creation, especially anime isn’t one of them. Kuroko’s Basketball will be available for streaming on Netflix from January 12th, 2021 onwards. However, this doesn’t mean that any new episodes are anywhere near development.
The current batch available to Netflix Subscribers will only be the Seventy-Five episodes. All these are spanning over the three seasons between which were airing 2012 to 2015.
