Alright, I told myself that I won’t write this , because 1. I’m like a year behind lol and 2. I’m kinda over it…but not really? But its nagging me in the back of my head, so I was like oooook, I’ll just get it off my chest. ok from the title, you can see what I’ll be ranting about…for those who haven’t seen it yet, spoiler alert! also this is my opinion, so if you got yours, wonderful..this is mine *puts hands on hips sassilly* <- is that even a word?
NOw….let me just tell you…..I HATE HOW IT ENDED. I’ve read some other comments and opinions about the match and most felt the same way, some had their own reasons, but here are mine.
OK, so first off, I spoiled it for my self a looooong time ago, I already knew Murasakibara was going to be in the zone, I just didn’t know when he would. SO, I’m watching the last 2 episodes, and omg there is just too many things that are bothering me about the whole match.
My main concern is the fact that Kagami went into the zone….again?!?!1 Yah, again, now ok, I know that Seirin is the main team to cheer for, blah blah blah…but honestly…Kagami going into the zone again makes it too jarring. Its like, they always need to depend on the zone in order to win. -_- LIke, I know it was that time of the story where the zone was being introduced but even Aomine said that it is harder to get into the zone for the second time…. And Kagami got in like it was a piece of cake. Also it was because of like, friendship or something like that, made him get into, whatever. That was the main reason why I had my jaw drop for the entire match, not because of amazement but because of disapproval. Also, the time limit in Kagami’s zone felt way too long. I know in reality it was probably like under a minute or 2, but I don’t know, and when he was doing his Jam thing (lol), it looked like he got even more boost from the zone and just won like that. Is it just me, or do I hear favouritism?
Second reason is that, why Murasakibara couldn’t jump at the last second? HOnestly, when that happened I literally choked on my spit. Like really…OK, let me just put it all out there, I am a big Murasakibara fan, and when I saw that I seriously couldn’t take it anymore. It’s like, that’s another excuse for Seirin to take home the point. I read some comment saying that there was a really subtle clue that showed Murasakibara’s “weakened” legs (It was the part where Kagami went for a three point but it didn’t go in), it showed Murasakibara kinda grunting (?) and Kuroko looked kinda shocked. I honestly thought KUroko’s reaction was because he knew the shot wouldn’t go in, but anyways that’s besides the point. So yeah, I know Himuro sort of explained it saying that he couldn’t jump because he was jumping around for the entire game, but stil…it just felt too unbelievable..in a bad way of course.
And then third, is the last half of the game, the rest of Yosen seemed irrelevant. It was only Murasakibara and HImuro, and the rest were kinda just there (or not even there..) In the beginning They were all hyping their heights and defense skills, and then the last half Seirin was like, OK, let’s just charge in like no one’s home! No big deal right? -_-
Anyways, other weird stuff some people were saying is how KUroko was able to smack the ball out of Murasakibara’s hands in the end. I kinda thought it was as wee bit jarring but not really, I Mean, Murasakibara was hunched, with his knees bent and torso curled, his arms were not really extended, so in my prediction he temporally became maybe 6″4ish? KUroko is 5″6 (correct me if im wrong) and he jumped and raised his arms up adding to his height maybe close to 6″5 or even higher. I thought that was more believable than Kagami being able to be in the zone the second time. And there’s Kiyoshi, returning from his trauma, and miraculously able to jump in to help Kagami push the ball out of Murasakibara’s grip. I don’t know man, I don’t know…
Now the things is, story/plot wise, it all “makes sense”. Seirin is the main team to root for, so obviously they HAD to win. That’s the only thing that’s making their win understandable. I’m not being butt hurt or anything (maybe a little..but of good reason!), I don’t mind Yosen losing, it’s how they lost, that’s what made me bothered. Because technically speaking, without the zone, Seirin would have lost. Heck they were losing throughout the whole match. I feel like the zone is too easily activated, even Murasakibara got into it as well. (Don’t get me wrong, I love it when he was in zone 😉 and it was nice to know that he like basketball afterall)
Anywho, this rant is forever long, i Just had to get it off my chest. I’m watching the 3rd season now, and I’m anticipating Akashi like theres no tomorrow. That guy freaks me out …in a good way 😉 k till, next time!
