Seirin High's greatest basketball superstar was the one no one literally saw coming-the invisible Kuroko! Tetsuya Kuroko doesn't stand out much. In fact, he's so plain that people hardly ever notice when he's around. Though he's just as unremarkable on the basketball court, that's where his plainness gives him an unexpected edge-one that lets him execute awesome moves without others noticing!
Aiming for the finals league, Seirin takes on Shutoku and their Miracle Generation ace, Midorima. The team's fired up thanks to Kagami, but how will this battle end?! Meanwhile, a friend from Kuroko's middle school appears. Will his teammates find out what happened in Kuroko's mysterious past?!
