To entice you to read this post, here is a picture of two guys kissing from one of my favourite shows.
I’m a big fan of Kuroko no Basuke, but by this point, I feel that it’s been dismissed as nothing more than fujoshi eye candy by the mainstream fandom and that’s really disappointing for me to see. Fanbase is no determinant of the content at all, and anyone who would say KuroBasu is a BL series with a straight face has probably not even watched the anime. It’s just a regular shonen anime, people.
Admit it, we’re all guilty of this…….. right?
… Face it, the fujoshi would be all over it.
Have I ever mentioned how I’m a fujoshi on the inside?
Kuroko no Basuke is the rising sports anime of today, after Prince of Tennis. It would be a mistake, however, to compare it with its predecessor because of the huge differences in their narratives. While TeniPuri used Echizen Ryoma as a starting point and later branched out to other players and teams, KuroBasu is practically anchored on Kuroko Tetsuya’s development as a character.
In other words, TeniPuri is the grand narrative of middle school tennis, whereas KuroBasu is all about its protagonist, which is the focus of this post.
