Now That I Think About It (改めて思いました, Aratamete Omoimashita) is the eighth episode of the Kuroko no Basuke anime.


Seirin's next match is against Seiho, who are known for their defense, and defeated Seirin the previous year, leading them to the brink of quitting basketball. Kuroko, is determined to win the match for the seniors. Elsewhere, Kise checks the "Oha Asa" horoscope (which tends to foretell how well Midorima will play). Midorima has the top fortune while Kuroko has the worst. Seiho's Tsugawa Tomoki, who managed to stop Kise in middle school, is up against Kagami. After first quarter, Riko tells Seirin that Seiho use old martial arts movement techniques. Kagami manages to beat Kasuga with speed, and scores the first goal.

Manga and Anime Differences

  • Kagami was seen dunking in the training scene before looking at Midorima in the anime, but in the manga Kagami didn't.
  • The scene when Kagami finally passed Tsugawa, was lessened in the anime. In the manga, Kagami drives to the right, did a shift to the left and crossed it over to the right, with a fast change of pace. Kagami only did two changes in the anime and it wasn't pictured as fast like in the manga.
