Kuroko's Basketball

Kuroko's Basketball is the Japanese basketball comic featuring Sixth Man "Tetsuya Kuroko" that was serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump from 2009 to 2014.

In traditional basketball comics, the main character is usually the starting five, but it is interesting that the Sixth Man is the main character!

The origin of the name "Kuroko" means a person who wears a black costume and a black hood in kabuki and bunraku plays (in Japan), and acts as an attendant for actors and operates stage sets.

In other words, Kuroko means "to be behind the scenes," so Tetsuya Kuroko takes full advantage of his extremely shadowy characteristics to play an active role in basketball!
