Synopsis[edit]

The US street basketball team named Jabberwock (ジャバウォック, Jabauokku) came to Japan and played a friendly match with the Japanese team (Strky (スターキー, Sutākī)), but after the Japanese team suffered a crushing defeat, Jabberwock team members began to mock the Japanese basketball. Their comments infuriated Riko's father, so he assembled a team of five Generation of Miracles members plus Tetsuya Kuroko and Taiga Kagami, called Vorpal Swords (ヴォルパル・ソード, Vu~oruparu sōdo), to perform a Revenge match (リベンジ • マッチ, Ribenji matchi) against Jabberwock.

Jabberwock[edit]

Nash Gold Jr. (ナッシュ・ゴールド・Jr., Nasshu Gōrudo Jr.)
Voiced by: Hikaru Midorikawa
Captain of the American basketball team Jabberwock. Gold has a two-faced personality. Outside the court he was calm, polite and even charming. But as a player in court he is cruel, rude and perhaps the most arrogant in the team. In addition, he seems to have a darker personality when he becomes serious. This can be seen when he revealed his "Belial Eye" to Akashi. Gold becomes even more arrogant, saying that even God can not defeat it.
Jason Silver (ジェイソン・シルバー, Jeison Shirubā)
Voiced by: Tetsu Inada
One of the members of the American basketball team Jabberwock. Silver is arrogant and ignorant, and he calls himself the "Almighty Me." Along with that he is also very talkative, just to have a lot of interest in women. He will not care about the people around him, unless it's Gold Jr. will be the one who did it. Silver also tends to mock those whom he considers weak.

Production[edit]

The ending theme song of this movie is "Glorious days" sung by GRANRODEO.[2][3]
