Kuroko’s Basketball: Last Game
5 Animated Movies That Need To Head West
Kuroko’s Basketball: Last Game made headlines in Japan for its theatrical success. In just 9 weeks, the film was able to gross over 1 billion yen (just over $9 million). The run was considered such a success that the Shinjuku Piccadilly Theater in Tokyo held another special screening of the film with all three main voice actors in attendance. It’s proof that the film did well on the seas, but the real reason the film should come to the West is the simple fact that the anime is a beloved series here as well.
Kuroko’s Basketball is available on Crunchyroll and has overwhelmingly positive ratings. In a sea of sports-centric anime that tends to fall flat, Kuroko’s Basketball has always managed to break the mold and stand out. It seems like the film can capture that same essence.
