Kuroko no Basuke took over the Ikebukuro station!
Kuroko no Basuke (*The Basketball which Kuroko Plays*) is a popular manga which is currently being serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump. In commemoration of volume 21 of the manga going on sale, a poster campaign was held on Feb. 4 in the JR Ikebukuro and Nagano stations and in the Tokyo Metro Shinjuku station.
The walls at each station were covered in several different posters promoting the popular manga. The posters included group shots of Kaijo vs. Seirin, the Generation of Miracles, and Kagami Taiga.
There is also a promotion going on in which those who buy volume 21 of the manga can enter to receive a free T-shirt designed by the manga’s original artist. To further tie in with Kuroko, only 965 shirts will be given out (the number 965 can be pronounced as “kuroko” in Japanese). Fans can enter by using the slip of paper that comes packaged in the manga. The deadline to enter is Mar. 4 (entries must be postmarked by this date). More information can be found on the entry form in the manga. If you are a Kuroko fan, don’t miss out on this opportunity to get a rare Kuroko T-shirt!
