I'll Take This For Now (もらっとくわ, Morattokuwa) is the fifty-fourth episode and the fourth episode of the 3rd season of the Kuroko no Basuke anime.


Aomine greets Kagami

The final four of Winter Cup has finally been decided: Rakuzan, Shutoku, Seirin, and Kaijo. However, on the day of the semi-finals, Kuroko and Kagami both realized their basketball shoes were broken and hurriedly get on their way to buy new shoes. However, Kagami can't find shoes in his size! Thanks to Kuroko's suggestion, they seek advice from Momoi, and her reply is that he should use Aomine's shoes, as they both have the same shoe size. Of course, Aomine wasn't going to meekly hand a pair over, and they end up in a one-on-one with the shoes as the prize! Daiki quickly won but still offered the shoes to Kagami. Taiga grudgingly accepts and says that he'll take it for now but their competition isn't over yet.

Taiga and Tetsuya rushed to watch the first semi-final match of the Winter Cup: Rakuzan Vs. Shutoku. The problem Shutoku has yet to encounter is that Rakuzan has not only acquired Akashi from the Generation of Miracles but also has three of the Five Uncrowned Kings on their starting lineup. The true powers of Rakuzan, which allowed them to create the strongest lineup in their history, is about to come into the open!
