Compilation films slated for this 2016, Extra Game film in 2017
This year’s first issue of Shueisha’s Jump Next magazine is revealing on Thursday that the Kuroko’s Basketball anime will get three compilation films this year, as well as a brand-new anime film adaptation of Tadatoshi Fujimaki’s Kuroko no Basuke Extra Game manga in 2017. The three compilation films will compile the Winter Cup episodes from the television anime.
The KuroBas Cup 2015 event last September had ended with an announcement that a theatrical film had been green-lit.
Fujimaki launched the original Kuroko no Basuke manga series in Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in 2008, and he ended the series in September 2014. Shueisha published the 30th and final compiled volume of the manga in Japan in December 2014.
In the beginning of the original series, Taiga Kagami has just enrolled at Seirin High School when he meets Tetsuya Kuroko of the school’s basketball team. Kuroko happens to be the shadowy sixth member of the legendary “Generation of Miracles” basketball team. Together, Kagami and Kuroko aim to take their team to the inter-high school championship — against Kuroko’s former teammates.
