I'm Glad to be Doing It is the eighteenth volume of the Kuroko no Basuke manga series.


Because Kagami is unable to overcome is past with Himuro, Riko benches him. The second years focus on piercing the Shield of Aegis. Watching Kiyoshi’s struggles for the team, Kagami asks Kuroko to throw his ring away so he can focus on his future with Seirin. Determination renewed, he once again enters the game and faces off against Himuro. Watching Seirin’s efforts, an enraged Murasakibara says he’s had enough—he’ll teach them basketball’s true, cruel reality.
