One of the things I enjoy most about KuroBasu is how female characters are portrayed
Sure, the testosterone is roaring, but have you noticed that the female characters here are leaders? They’re strong, independent, smart women, girls who have achieved and do so continously, whose purpose and goals are not shot forward or validated by a man.
Alexandra’s a former NBA player and she’s the person responsible behind Kagami’s and Muro-chin’s basketball.
Momoi’s an information analyst who is a vital part of the team because she ensures victory by providing the information they need to design their strategy, plus she’s someone who’s proved to be a great friend (even going as far as choosing Touou because Aomine would be disastrous without someone to keep him in check), she is always pushing him to strive to be better and she doesn’t get her crush on Kuroko get in the way of anything.
Then we’ve got Riko, who is the coach and mastermind behind Seirin, she takes bull from no one and pushes the boy forward even at the cost of coming across as temperamental or annoying, she wants what’s best for the team.
Then there’s Masako, who has to deal with the yousen boys, which by the look of that stick she carries around may be no walk in the freaking park.
So while we may not get to see an all-girl team yet, we have to agree that all of their roles in the manga are pivotal to the plot and they’ve helped the men become who they are by being themselves and all around great leaders and persons but they’re not used to develop their characters, rather it’s a result of nurturing each other.
So, yeah. I fucking love the KuroBasu babes.
