Kuroko's Basketball is currently airing its second season, its first season having aired last year. It chronicles the high school career of the title character, Kuroko Tetsuya, who possesses an amazing ability to stealthily relay passes. Having played with an awesomely skilled middle school team, the "Generation of Miracles," he must now prove his worth in a new setting. The anime has been clouded by an ongoing terrorist threat involving hydrogen sulfide, convenience store snacks and Sophia University.
