Kuroko, was the phantom six man from his junior high basketball team, where the players were so good they were regarded as “The Generation of Miracles”. An apt description since there is a guy on the team that is a %100 shooter… from anywhere on the court… that’s right, anywhere… That’s what makes the show really fun though is some of the ridiculous things these players can do, and then in turn how the other team has to overcome them. Each of the six players from the Generation of Miracles can do something unique and amazing. They are so good that it starts to push them apart, and changes the way they feel about basketball; except Kuroko.
Prepare for the glass shattering effect. Remember that episode of How I Met Your Mother, where Ted pointed out to Marshal that Lilly chews loudly and then Marshal couldn’t not notice it after that, well I’m about to do that for western television.
Why are so many Young Adult (YA) books getting turned into movies? For me it comes down to the stories that get told in YA books. Some of the most fun and creative stories come out of this category of books. It is one of my favourite genre’s for this reason. They become so popular because they are accessible reads, meaning anyone from a child to an adult can read them and find something in them that speaks to them. Everyone is a young adult at some point and the struggles that these characters go through are therefore very relatable. Children and young adults can relate to how they are currently feeling and adults can remember back to that time in there own life. This makes it a powerful genre for hitting a huge audience, and when there is a huge audience for something obviously the next step is to transition it to film. So why do so many of these films flop?
