    Yeah, me too. Thought it'd be much more kiddy orientated. Tell me if you still think so after the first episode. ;)

    Worth a try. The characters feel a bit goofy for the first few episodes but they develop quickly. All three seasons are on Netflix UK.

    Started Kuroko no Basket.

    First season was quite nice, but later seasons have usual problem of getting worse when characters and opponents get better.
    It doesn't help that matches seem to be getting longer.

    The title graphics are hiding a lot in plain sight, my appreciation for that artwork went up a lot after completing the first season. It's a good story.

    @temesgen @digitalwanderer

    Help me understand how they
    Able to climb the wall using a rope that was tied BEHIND them?

    Tree - rope (tied to the tree) - wall

    If it was

    Rope (tied to the tree) - wall - tree

    It would make sense. But in ep8 or 9 it doesn't make sense at all.

    Or this was a hint that the kids have super powers to wall run like ass creed or prince of Persia?

    They did show
    wall-running but I thought the rope was coming from top of the wall
    , but its been long time since I saw the episodes.

    I haven't seen any from Season 2 yet.

    Still taking in Attack on Titan, final season. Episides 5, 6, and 7 have got it going on.

    Okay, caught the scene from a search and showed the Manga artwork. It looks like the idea is
    the rope serves as a swing and then they do some running.

    Edit: YT video on the last part of it:

    Just thought I'd add:

    They tied the rope to the top of a tree near the wall to gain some vertical somehow, but I'm still not sure how the physics of it would work. :|

    Its a swing that's tilted, like carnival ride.

    Yes, but...

    ...wouldn't they have to be basically climbing the rope while wall running to gain height which would pull them away from the wall? I know this is stupid, but it really did bug me. LOL

    They're actually doing the opposite,
    they're sliding further down the rope (further away from the tree) while running up the wall, otherwise they'd be pulled away from the wall and sling/swing back to the side where the tree is at.

    At least thats how I'm opting to rationalize it.
