The other five members of Kuroko's middle school team have been recruited to private high schools around the country and must be defeated by Serin High School if they are to become national champions.

Kuroko must firstly become accepted by the other members of the team, including a member who has lived the majority of his life honing his skills in the U.S. Tetsuya Kuroko is smaller than the majority of his teammates, but is more skillful and is often laughed at by members of opposing teams before they play each other.
