Just recently at the Kuroko no Basket (affectionately abbreviated as KuroBas) event, KuroBas Cup that took place at the Makuhari Messe Event Hall, a special announcement was made that sent the fans into immense excitement!
While many fans thought that it would be the end of the franchise, what with the final episode having aired in July, it turns out that there is still more in store for the series!
An animated movie has been announced for the franchise. Not much details have been released with regards to the release date but fans can be assured that it is not the end for the KuroBas franchise just yet! Based on fan reports on Twitter, the movie is set to be based off the Kuroko no Basket EXTRA GAME manga, which is a short sequel to the original manga.
