When incoming first-year student Taiga Kagami joins the Seirin High basketball team, he meets Tetsuya Kuroko, a mysterious boy who's plain beyond words. But Kagami's in for the shock of his life when he learns that the practically invisible Kuroko was once a member of "the Miracle Generation"-the undefeated, legendary team-and he wants Kagami's help taking down each of his old teammates! Aiming for the finals league, Seirin has challenged Shutoku and their ace, Midorima. The team's fired up thanks to Kagami, but is there any guarantee that fire won't be quickly extinguished by the sharp-shooting Midorima?! Meanwhile, a friend from Kuroko's middle school suddenly shows up before the team and shocks everyone by revealing some insight into Kuroko's mysterious past!
